Hey Beauty Stars!  I had the opportunity to attend a private media event for Real Techniques , where I was able to see some collections of their makeup brushes, including the NEW and impressive Bold Metals collection.   This preview event was a part of their 4 city 2015 RTRoadshow that visited major metros of NYC, Chicago, Nashville and Los Angeles.

During the preview, not only were we treated to yummy cocktails (of course mine was a Sprite with cherries) and hors d’oeuvres from the chic and edgy Sambuca Sky Lounge, but I was also able to sit and chat with Samantha & Nicola Chapman.

 These lovely ladies are both the beauty and brains behind the brand and the creators of Pixiwoo, the #1 YouTube Beauty Channel in the U.K.    What I love the most about Sam & Nic are that they are sisters, moms, and inspiring business women.  They both are very down to earth women who love sharing their beauty knowledge and getting social with their audience.

I also got to chat with the Real Techniques Brand Manager and Media contacts who were equally pleasant.   I had a blast learning about the various uses of the brushes, watching some of the Pixiwoo YouTube tutorials streaming on the flat screens overhead and chatting it up with other beauty and lifestyle media professionals.

I received a variety of Real Techniques brushes that I’ve now added to my beauty tools collection and I must say, I am super impressed with the quality and performance of the new Bold Metals brushes.

My personal favorite is the Foundation Brush #101, due to the fact that the brush offers a great amount of versatility.  It’s basically 3 brushes in 1, which makes it both practical and economical at only $24 retail.  It can be used to apply foundation with the large flat side, gets into creases and corners with ease at the point and then offers 2 additional sides for contouring and finishing.   The handle is great because it’s easy to hold and the shape of the brush keeps it from rolling off surfaces.    It really is a great design and great all-around brush for makeup lovers.

My Favorite!!! I’ve ditched my old brush for this new lovely from Real Techniques. It’s the Foundation 101. You can get it in my Shop! http://astore.amazon.com/naturstell-20/detail/B00CBNK74I  | Naturally Stellar NaturallyStellar.com

I’m by no means an expert when it comes to makeup application, but I do know a good brush when I see one.  I am officially retiring my E.L.F. Foundation brush for the flawless finish of the Bold Metals Foundation Brush.

You can check out the Real Techniques makeup brushes for yourself!  The products are available in the U.S. at Walmart, CVS, and Ulta.   If you want to try the premium Bold Metals Collection, these can now be found in the Kohl’s beauty department.   P.S.  Kohl’s also offers store pickup, if you prefer ordering & paying online.  You can also check out more photos from the RTRoadshow on social media by following the hashtag #RTRoadshow
