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.
