“Brush Experts” is KIKO’s brand new brush range
I’m sitting here staring at the blank page, wondering why on earth I decided to write a post about makeup brushes… I mean, I don’t really get overly excited about brushes (to me they’re merely a means to an end), and I usually tend to only talk about things that do get me excited, so that I can (hopefully) pass my excitement on to you.
But, since I’m here, I guess I’ll just take this as a writing exercise…
So without any further ado, I present you the new KIKO Brush Experts!
My beloved Lipstick Swatch-a-thon Mug from ConnorClaire.com holds four brushes from the new KIKO Blush Experts range: the Face 10 Blush Brush, the Face 05 Round Foundation Brush, the Eyes 56 Round Blending Brush, and the Lips 80 Flat Lip Brush
Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been using four of the 32 new brushes KIKO has recently released: the 05 Round Foundation Brush, the 10 Blush Brush, the 56 Round Blending Brush, and the 80 Flat Lip Brush.
Let’s have a closer look at each brush!
KIKO Brush Experts Face 05 Round Foundation Brush ($19/£14.90/€14.95)
The KIKO Face 05 Round Foundation Brush applies liquid foundation seamlessly and quickly. I use circular motions and get an almost airbrushed (but still very natural) look.
If you need a new foundation brush, this is definitely worth considering!
KIKO Brush Experts Face 10 Blush Brush ($15/£13.90/€13.95)
I think the KIKO Face 10 Blush Brush has the ideal shape (slanted and not too big) and bristle density (not too dense) to always apply the right amount of any powder product, exactly where you want it.
BUT – there’s a but: it sheds quite a bit, especially when you wash it.
KIKO Brush Experts Eyes 56 Round Blending Brush ($14/£10.90/€10.95)
The KIKO Eyes 56 Round Blending Brush does a pretty good job at blending out eyeshadow in the crease, and since it’s not particularly fluffy, it really comes in handy whenever I want to be quite precise.
KIKO Brush Experts Lips 80 Flat Lip Brush ($12/£10.90/€10.95)
Since I never use a lip brush to apply my lipstick, I’ve been using the KIKO Lips 80 Flat Lip Brush for pinpoint concealing and it works GREAT.
This to me is the best way to conceal everything that needs concealing while keeping my base light and fresh.
BIG BONUS: the Brush Experts have a semi-rounded handle design so they don’t roll off your vanity top!
The new KIKO Brush Experts are available now at kikocosmetics.com and in store.
Have you tried any of these new brushes? And what’s your relationship with makeup brushes and tools in general? Are you a brush hoarder or do you like to keep your collection as streamlined as possible (and spend as little money as possible)?
