Beauty | Real Technique Bold Metal Brush Dupes


Hi Lovelies! What is it about rose gold and metals that we've all gone bonkers about? My instagram feed is forever full of marble Macbooks sitting so pretty next to a rose gold pen pot and to be honest it's a cliché that I absolutely love.  It looks luxurious and I want it all, however luxury can sometimes come at a price and that's a price i'm not always willing to pay.

It was only a matter of time before everything in the beauty world became encased in silvers and golds and the Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection hit the shelves creating swoons left right and centre. Now I spend a lot of money on beauty products, guilty as charged, but as I already had most of the basic Real Techniques brushes in my collection I couldn't part with the price tag of nearly £20 per beautiful brush. I kept my eye out for offers but as nothing substantial ever came along I kind of gave up.


Tap in the wonder that is eBay.  Now I stick to my guns when it comes to buying certain items on eBay because they can sometimes be a little 'different' to what you expected, but i'd seen these brushes occasionally popping up on my Instagram and Bloglovin' Feeds and I thought I'd throw caution to the wind and take the plunge (this is about as exciting as my life gets btw).

£6.29 is what this brush set cost me. Six pounds and twenty nine pence. Individually priced at around £2, heck these brushes could of turned up with toothpicks for bristles and a tin foil handle and I'd of thought what the hell and found some strange use for them anyway.


The set includes a Triangle Foundation, Arched Powder, Flat Contour (what a babe this one is), Tapered Blush, Oval Shadow, Pointed Crease and Angled Liner Brush and holy moly they are the softest brushes I've ever had in my collection. I cannot even believe how great the quality of these beauties are. In the last three or so weeks of usage, there has been very little to no fall out, they apply your products just as well as my real versions and they just look beautiful (is that an okay word to use to describe a make-up brush? I'm gonna' anyway). I haven't yet washed these so I cannot comment but upon how well they've tackled everything else, my guess is they'll do just fine.

I obviously expect that real deal's are worth their money, but for a tiny tiny fraction of the price I highly recommend these lovelies as a cheap alternative if you don't want to part with your pennies!

Would you try these brushes?

  2. I just ordered some of these the other day!! I was wondering why the Real Techniques ones are so expensive compared to their originals, they're close to Mac pricing and more expensive than Zoeva lol, which is not justifiable to me at all. Can't wait for mine to arrive!

  9. I think it's sad that the bold metals brushes from Real Technique came at such a high price tag, considering the other ones it quite affordable xx

  17. Woah I need to get my hands on these. When RT came out with the bold metal collection I was immediately drawn to the packaging but the price tag is just a bit steep tbh

  20. I find a lot of great alternative brush brands on EBay, not even dupes but actual new/unknown brands that are super high quality (such as Jessup).. I've always wanted the bold metal brushes so I'll have to check these out :) x
