Real techniques Bold metals 202 Liner brush

Can you tell I have been buying a lot of brushes recently? I decided to invest in a nice eyeliner brush as I haven't got a nice one for cream and gel liners, and so I tend to use a lot of liquid and pen liners instead as I find I can't apply the others as well. I find the tool is so important with make up, and especially with something like eye liner that needs to be precise and have a crisp clean line it is essential that you have a good brush. 

The bold metals collection doesn't need any explanation on how beautiful they are, you can clearly see the stunning and unmistakable beauty that they hold. From the crisp white bristles of the brush to the chrome like silver finish of the handle, these are straight up my favourite brushes to look at and have on my dressing table. A mirrored dressing table adorned with silver and white brushes, can you get any more aesthetically pleasing?! Maybe I got carried away there.....

Ok, so now we have established how much I love the brush lets move on to its main selling point, functionality. The brush has a thin set of bristles which allow you to get a thin, precise line with minimal effort. As well as this it has firm but slightly flexible bristles that allow a level of give when you apply liner and press on the eyelid while still keeping the shape and density of the brush. 

The brush picks up the colour really well and it doesn't work too far into the brush so you can be sure to work only a small amount of product into the brush to ensure you only have the amount you need. I find the dense texture allows you to clean up the sides of the brush on the container before applying the colour to the eye in order to allow the product to apply properly and precisely. 

I was so impressed with the way this brush applied eyeliner and it was definitely a lovely shaped brush that meant it is easy to create a flick at the outer corner of the eye. The shape creates a thin line that can be built up to thicken out or be your desired look without ending up being thicker from the start. 

The brush is £12 and can be found on Boots here if you want to check it out. I think this is a lovely brush and it applies eyeliner so well. I might not use this on the most regular basis as I sometimes skip liner if I am in a rush, and I could do with a new gel/cream liner to use as mine are reaching the end of their life so if you know a nice one do let me know. I will however use this on any days I want to use the cream formulas which I am hoping to transition back into as I have fallen out of love with them and ant to see how I feel about them again. I really recommend you check this brush out if you are in the market for a new liner brush, it may even work for eyebrows if you like brow pomades, but I haven't tried it for this use!
