I’ve always been into makeup brushes although my “obsession” if it can be called that, hasn’t come to the fore till quite recently. All of a sudden, we’re inundated with new and wonderful brands of makeup brushes and better still, some brands have revamped their brush line! Earlier this year, I told you about NARS overhauling their makeup brushes. I may have mentioned that there was another brand that was also doing the same.
The brand in question is Japanese brand RMK, and I confess to being a little over-excited when I was introduced to the new brushes a while ago together with their Summer collection. In fact, all thoughts and opinions of the Summer collection flew out the window the moment I laid eyes on their delectable new eyeshadow brushes! 😀
This Summer 2014, RMK introduces their new range of eyeshadow and eye liner brushes which will replace the previous ones. I didn’t own the previous versions as I didn’t quite like how they felt, which was a little rough, much to my surprise. These new ones feel deliciously soft and comfortable, and are made from natural hair, bar 3 brushes, my personal choice for makeup brushes.
I had the opportunity to speak to one of the RMK Makeup Artists from Japan who was visiting during the launch and asked where these brushes were made and I was told that they’re made by Chikuhodo – a reknowned brush maker in Japan, like the more visible Hakuhodo. I’ll quickly break down the brushes for you
