Make Up Revolution Ultra Metals Brushes | Review


L-R : Flawless Powder Brush | Contour Foundation Brush | Flat Contour Brush | Sculpt Blush Brush | Crease Eyeshadow Brush
The Make Up Revolution Ultra Metals Brushes have been all over the beauty scene recently, and have attracted a lot of attention for many different reasons. First of all, they are beautiful: rose gold brushes with snow white bristles. Secondly, they have received a lot of speculation because at first glance, they look like dupes for the Real Techniques Bold Metals brushes, and to an extent, I have to say I agree.
  
The Ultra Metals collection consists of five brushes:

•    Ultra Flawless Powder Brush (F301) | £9.99 (here)
•    Ultra Contour Foundation Brush (F302) | £9.99 (here)
•    Ultra Flat Contour Brush (F304) | £9.99 (here)
•    Ultra Sculpt Blush Brush (F303) | £8.99 (here)
•    Ultra Pointed Crease Eyeshadow Brush  (E301) | £5.99 (here)

So starting off with the biggest and most fluffy brush in the bunch, the Flawless Powder Brush is an absolute dream to use for face powder to set make up in place and for bronzer just to add a bit of overall colour to your look. As with all of the brushes, the synthetic brush hairs are super soft against the skin and so far, I haven't noticed any shedding of the bristles nor have I heard anyone else mention them in reviews or first impression posts. The brushes themselves also feel lovely, and they have a nice weight to them without being heavy - it makes them feel a lot more sleek without having an expensive price tag.



Next, is the Contour Foundation Brush, which I would say is the most unusual in the collection due   to it's shape and size. It truly does look like the dupe for the Real Techniques Bold Metals Triangle Foundation Brush and I was really intrigued to see how this would work. The bristles in this brush just as soft as the others, but are densely packed together and the brush is perfect to use for those hard to reach areas such as the hairline, near the ears and around the eyes. It is recommended to be used for foundation for I think it would serve well as a contour brush as well.




Speaking of contouring, the Ultra Metals Flat Contour Brush is perfect to sculpt your face with as it fits perfectly below the cheekbone for a precise contour. I like using this brush, with both, cream and powder products and I find that it works very well with both. As with the Contour Foundation Brush which was mentioned above, the bristles in this brush are a lot more dense, which gives you more control when trying to achieve the perfect contour.




Next is the Sculpt Blush Brush in the collection and as the name suggests, it's great to use for powder products such as blusher, bronzer and highlighter. The brush itself is fluffy and allows you to distribute product evenly without it being too much.

Last but by no means least, is the Pointed Crease Eyeshadow Brush. I wouldn't say the brush is particularly pointed but it's the perfect shape and size to work with and blend eyeshadows. I also think it would work very well as a concealer brush and is the perfect size to contour down the bridge of your nose, if that's a part of your make up routine.

Overall, I have to say I'm impressed. In the time that I've had them, I've really enjoyed using these brushes: I've found them really soft on the skin and they're really nice to work with. I haven't noticed any shedding of the bristles yet either and I have already washed the brushes twice. Also, let's just be honest here, the brushes are absolutely gorgeous. They're very aesthetically pleasing and they now have proud home on top of my dresser.

These brushes can either be purchased individually, as they are packaged separately, or you can buy the full Ultra Metals Brush Collection for £34.95, meaning you save yourselves £10,  just like I did! (here)
