The full name of this brush set is the Royal & Langnickel Pro Greenline Eco-Friendly Brush Set 12 Piece Silk…sheesh is that a mouthfull! I really think that name needs to be shortened just a tad.
I really should have reviewed on this one ages ago. I was given this one to try out at IMAT’S London last year and I’ve been testing them out ever since, so you could say I’ve had an extra long time to test them out.
When I first was given these I’ll admit the price made me put them through quite a lot of abuse to really test them, and they held up marvelously!
- Eco Friendly
- Bamboo handles
- Synthetic hair
- Chrome-plated ferrules
- Cruelty Free
If I hadn’t been told that the hairs were synthetic I would have though they were reall hair. So incredibly soft! I can honestly say the softness isÂ comparable to the Hakuhodo brushes and that’s an increadibly high standard!
I’ve used these for over six months so I’ve really had time to figure out all the pro’s a cons. Lets start with the cons as it will be quite a short list.
- One thing I noticed is that the case cannot get wet or the cork tends to rise and buckle.
As that’s the end of my list of cons! (Seriously!)
So lets just cover this in bullet points…
- They don’t shed. If it does then it’s only one or two hairs at most.
- LOVE the shape of the handles. The fact that they thin out at the ends make them really comfortable to hold.
- Practical sturdy case.
- Really good selection of brushes. The only one I’m not to fond of is the flat liner but that’s just personal preference.
- Easy to clean
After I’d used these for so long and found almost no faults with them I decided to do the maths and if you divide the cost up between each brush it ends up being around £6-£7 per brush.
As you can see I have nothing bad really to say about these brushes. While they’re not the kind of brushes that you can just rush out and buy on a whim they are professional quality and are what I would consider investment brushes.
You can purchased them here.
