Whether you've been yearning for some high-end makeup brushes (like me) or have a few in your beauty repertoire already, I'm guessing the first place you'd consider purchasing them is probably Sephora, ULTA, or possibly Birchbox. I know I've always thought along the same lines -- that is until I received this amazing set of Bold Metals makeup brushes from none other than... Walmart!

I know -- I could hardly believe it, either. But it's true! These gorgeous, high-quality makeup brushes from Real Techniques are super soft, with a luxurious feel that you could previously only pick up in specialty stores, all minus the high costs.




What's included in the Real Techniques Bold Metals makeup brushes line?

Arched Powder #100 -- Designed with a domed cut to sweep perfectly across the face for flawless application of pressed or loose powders.

Triangle Foundation #101 -- Made for dual duty: flat edge covers large areas of face, while the angled edges contour around eyes and nose.

Oval Shadow #200 -- Made with a full, round shape for all-over lid application and seamless blending.

Pointed Crease #201 -- Densely packed, tapered bristles are perfect for creating that smoky effect with eye shadow.

Angled Liner #202 -- A firm, slanted head fits close to the lash line for smooth, even eye liner application.

Tapered Blush #300 -- Specially-designed tip highlights and sculpts across cheeks for seamless finish.

Flat Contour #301 -- Dense head creates shadows and highlights to play up favorite features.

Not sure exactly how to use some of these brushes? You're definitely not alone, but if you checkout the individual brushes on Walmart.com, you'll video tutorials for each makeup brush featuring the founders of Real Techniques, Sam & Nic. I took some time to watch them all, and they are truly filled with invaluable tips for making the most of each brush!

I really can't tell you which Bold Metals makeup brush is my favorite -- they're all pretty spectacular. But I'm totally loving the Arched Powder Brush right now.

The luxe, fluffy bristles are light as a feather, but the brush handle has a real heft to it, making the brush feel extra substantial. In fact, all of the brushes have weighted handles, which gives them plenty of control and comfort. Applying my favorite powder with the Arched Powder Brush really does feel luxurious!

Win a $100 Walmart gift card!

How would you like to win one of two $100 Walmart gift cards? Entry is easy -- just follow the instructions in the widget below.

What do you love the most about the sleek design of these brushes?

School is back in session, but that doesn't mean we have to leave the summer fun behind! The weather here in Ohio is as hot as ever, so I thought I'd surprise my kids at the bus stop with a box of Popsicle Jolly Rancher popsicles, making me the "coolest" mom ever. :)

Have you seen the variety of flavors this classic treat has now? I swear it seemed like my Kroger store had an entire cooler section filled with various treats. BTW, did you know that Popsicle is the original popsicle brand?

My personal favorite are the Original Fudge Bars, but when I spied these new frozen pops featuring the fruity flavors of Jolly Rancher candies, I just knew my kids would flip. And I was right -- they totally loved the icy cold, sour flavor.

And when they were finished, they had a blast telling each other the jokes on their sticks. "Why was the broom late for work? He overswept." Ha!!!

You can be the coolest mom around, too -- just head to your local Kroger store for an amazing Popsicle selection. But before you go, take a minute to enter the giveaway below...

Win a $50 Kroger gift card!

How would you like to win a $50 Kroger gift card? Just head over to the Deal Seeking Mom Facebook page through Thursday 9/17/15 at 11:59 pm PT to enter -- one lucky reader will win a $50 Kroger gift card!
