Makeup and Muses: KIM Brushes

I was contacted by KIM Brushes not too long ago to receive some wonderful, handmade makeup brushes from their line as part of Rekab. These are the three pieces that they sent.

The professional makeup brushes include one for the eyes, the lips and the face.

The Small Angle brush is angular in shape, which makes it great at creating fine lines and detailing around your lid. This brush can also be used on your eyebrows.
The Narrow Lip brush is tipped at the end to provide for a great contour when applying lip creams, glosses and lipsticks.

Lastly, the Flat Dome brush is the perfect tool for the total face. The rounded blusher brush makes it easy to highlight the cheeks evenly.
Have you guys used KIM Brushes before?
What brand of makeup brushes are you using?
Which of these 3 brushes is your favorite -- I'll be including one or all three in an upcoming giveaway!

I think I would have to say my favorite is the small angle brush, although my ultimate favorite brush is the bent angle brush. It's brilliant for doing winged eyeliner! :)

I haven't replaced my brushes in so long!! You reminded me that it is about time for me.

Thanks for the input on the camera!

I dont wear too much makeup, but the lip brush is such a great idea for putting on gloss and lipstick. Thats so great they sent them to you for review! :)

Hope you are having a great day!

I agree with Courtney Erin. I need to completely get a whole new set of makeup brushes. They are starting to hurt my face. LOL.

Would you believe that I have never before bought a set of makeup brushes? Insane, right? :P

i am always a sucker for a good small angle brush!

Tara @ Haute Lunch said...

I like angle brushes, but also love the large dome brush as I feel those types of brushes are the most important (since they touch more of your face than any others)!

modanista junkie said...

I like the flat dome brush. I am in need of some new brushes so this is probably a sign that I should get some soon. :)

Happy Friday!!
