Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection Essentials Set

Yesterday a VERY exciting parcel came I couldn't wait weeks to share it I had to share it straight away. I am a HUGE fan of Real Techniques, their brushes are great quality and very affordable, saying that when they bought out the Bold Metals collection I was put off due to the price but knew that one day after saving up I would buy them. But it all changed when I went on Amazon and spotted a shop that sells all the RT brushes from all the collections! I was about to buy the bold metals individually then I spot the Collection Essentials Set.

A quick google and I noticed that this set is not available in the UK, it is a RT Website Exclusive retailing at $49 equivalent to around £32. On Amazon the set is currently retailing at £12.99 + £2.00 delivery so £14.99 - half the price of the US selling. I ordered it on Sunday and it came Tuesday (yesterday), packed amazingly well and in great condition. And, it's the actual brushes! Do you see why I had to get this post up?

On to what is in the set you ask? 
Bold Metals Collection Essentials
The set comes with three different brushes, one of each bold metal colour. I haven't used the brushes yet but have had a touch and they are unbelievably soft and luxurious. They feel very high standard and it makes sense to me now why they are so expensive, they aren't no core collection. However, to me the handles feel plastic-y and the point at the end of the brush seems very annoying when holding it up, but as I use them more I am sure I will get used to them.
103 Angled Powder - This is the exclusive brush in the set and is described as their largest head yet, and with the added angle it helps to blend perfectly.
300 Tapered Brush (RRP £24.00) - The rose gold brushes were the ones that caught my eye in the first place due to the colour and the tapered brush was always on my wishlist. A tapered finish has been designed to highlight and sculpt the cheeks at the same time. 
200 Oval Shadow (RRP £15.00) - This eye brush is sold separately but is the price of what I paid for the entire set which is insane. The round shape of this brush allows you to give all over the lid application as well as help you blend everything together. 

Lets just address something - these are fakes. Of course they are! This set isn't even available in the UK. Everything on the brushes and about them looks identical to images online of the real ones, the actual set and the bold metals that I have seen in Boots with my own eyes. I have also experienced buying dupes of real techniques from the internet before and they have never come in actual packaging like this set. Its a first. But they are way cheaper than real ones and for me that isn't a problem.

I am very excited to use these brushes for the first time tomorrow and will report back either in this post or a seperate one with my full thoughts but for now I suggest you have a look at buying them...
