I’m kicking myself. Recently, I spent a boat-load of money on cosmetics. I’m really happy with my purchases, but not so happy with my bank account. Ok – I’m over my pity party because at least I look haute. 😉
Long story short, I went to Walmart for some supplies, remembered that I was going to be reviewing some make up brushes from Walmart so I strolled down the make up aisle and low and behold what did my eyes spy. Legit make-up brushes. I would expect to see these in a fancy pants store. These babies were NICE. When I looked at the prices (to analyze if Wal-mart still indeed had lowest prices now that they had big-girl make-up brushes) they were true to Wal-mart form – a bargain.
These guys are called the Bold Metal Collection.
Here’s a short review of their features:
- – 100 Arched Powder
The design has a dome cut to put powders exactly in their place.
- – 101 Triangle Foundation
The triangle foundation brush is just fun. I’ve always used sponges, so I love that there’s a fancy, soft brush to do the same thing. It contours perfectly on the large and small areas.
- – 200 Oval Shadow
The fullness of this brush makes lid application blend well.
- – 201 Pointed Crease
Hello, smoky eye! The pointed crease is perfect for creases.
- – 202 Angled Liner
Though I’m not a fan of liner brushes, I do like this one.
- – 300 Tapered Blush
I LOVE blushing my cheeks and the tapered brush was a treat for my rosebuds.
- – 301 Flat Contour
The thick stubbiness of this brush makes it great for contouring.
One aspect I loved about all the brushes is the weighted handles. You had something to hold onto and could feel the quality. Makes me think twice about the Wal-mart make-up aisle for sure! I also like how all the brushes are white which is a good visual reminder for me to clean my brushes regularly!
Can I let you all in on my number one tip for better looking make up (besides a good skin care regimen)?
Good make up brushes! Trust me, high quality make up brushes can make all the difference in the world ladies!
High quality brushes have:
- – Softer or precise bristles
- – Shed less
- – Wash cleaner
- – Last longer
- – Better application!
