This Real Techniques Bold Metals 100 Arched Powder Brush is not only pretty to look at, but also works really well! Its super soft and super friendly on my sensitive skin! I can’t even feel any scratches when I apply finishing powder to my skin. Before this brush, I hate it if I have to apply powder all over my face, but thanks to the combination of this brush and my favorite RCMA No-Color Powder, the application of finishing powder went seamlessly.


So, overall, I would highly highly recommend you to try this Real Techniques Bold Metals 100 Arched Powder Brush, especially if it is on sale, lol. This brush is probably one of the more expensive brushes from Real Techniques, but believe me, it is definitely worth it! Moreover, the pretty rose gold metallic handle make this brush even more expensive looking and classy. I might be haven’t try any famous brush from Hakuhodo or Wayne Goss yet, but after I’ve been trying quite a few brushes, I have to say this is one of the best powder brush in the market!

    1. It is very soft! The handle is comfortable I would say, however, it’s just not travel friendly if you’re traveling often. It’s just.. one of those packaging that meant to be prettify your vanity I guess? Lol. Thank you for reading! Xx
