KIM Professional Makeup Brushes

KIM contacted me about a month ago asking if I would be interested in reviewing their product.  I don’t think I’ve ever explained my process to you guys but when a company contacts me, I check out their website and do some quick googling to see if it would be something worth showing you guys.   Their website is very professional and well laid out so I decided to go ahead and check out their products.

KIM is a line of professional makeup brushes hand crafted by Rekab which is actually a fine art brush company.   They also have an affiliate program and offer wholesale pricing.  The brushes themselves were very sleek and seemed well constructed.  However as I was photographing them, I did notice the ferrule on the foundation brush was loose.

Please note that although I am reviewing these brushes for you guys, I don’t feel that I was sent brushes that would be a good indicator to determine if a brush line was any good.   A lip brush is pretty hard to screw up.  I don’t mean to be crass but I think I would be able to get a better feel for the line with an eyeshadow blending brush or something unique to the line.  In other words, I’m reviewing the brushes that I received from my point of view and according to my preferences.  I also feel indifferent about the line right now, neither positive or negative only because I don’t feel it’s fair to make a decision based on these 3 brushes.


The F231 is their Taklon Foundation Brush.  The bristles are very well constructed and feel great besides the ferrule being loose.  Honestly, I don’t use a traditional Foundation Brush because I feel that it gives a streaky finish so I probably won’t even use this brush.  This brush retails for $22.

The E131 is a small angle eyeshadow brush.  I would totally use this brush for applying eyeshadow to my lower lashline.  I prefer a stiffer, more precise brush for my brows but I know plenty of people who would use this on their brows.  This would also be good for smudging out eyeliner along the lashline.    This brush is only $10.

The L311 is their Narrow Lip Brush.  This flat brush would be great for precision lining of the lips.  This brush is an affordable $9.

  1. I was also sent their angle eyeshadow brush and their lip brush but I don’t think I will ever use the lip brush, and I would have loved the angle eyeshadow brush to be stiffer, like you said. Still great brushes though!

    • I agree. I just wish they sent different brushes out.

  2. Man I wish they would have sent you more eye brushes. I’m totally with you on foundation brushes. I always have to back with another brush to buff in the color, because I get streaks with the foundation brush. Great review!

    • Absolutely agree. I do have a new favorite foundation brush that I’ll be sharing with you all soon!!

  3. I totally agree with everything you said! Its hard to come to any sorta conclusion on the line with these brush choices… amazing pics!

    • Thanks Sara!!!
