Award winning makeup artist and the blenderella himself Kevin James Bennett recently collaborated with Royal & Langnickel, to create artist quality, synthetic makeup brushes.  As makeup artists and enthusiasts, we are always on the lookout for that one amazing brush that can do everything and be durable for years and KJ Bennett helped create a line of brushes that might just fit that bill!!! For some reason, makeup artist brushes tend to be inferior in quality as compared to those make for painters (especially those using oil paints).   Artist brushes can withstand being soaked in paint, turpentine, alcohol etc, without losing its integrity.  R&L have used state-of-the-art materials to produce a wide array of long-lasting brushes.

Here are some pics from the event!  I’m still testing out these brushes, so I’ll let you know about them soon!  Btw, pre-order is available now on the R&L website.
