I recently had the opportunity to try out KIM Brushes (, where you can not only order brushes individually at such a great price (as low as $5), but can get pre-designed sets (Basic ($68), Full ($84), and Pro ($118)). And they come with cute nifty zipped bags called Baggu!

I received a blue Baggu bag with 3 brushes: E121- Flat shader brush, F251-Stippling round brush (great for wet foundation application!), and L311- Narrow lip brush.

I like that the brush sets come with a zip up bag for storage, however at the moment it seems you cannot buy the Baggu itself if you just wanted the bag. BUT it comes free with a $50 purchase. :)
The brushes itself are really soft, I used it for a few weeks and didn't notice any hardening of the bristles or any crazy shedding of the hairs. The brush handles are good quality, they seems sturdy and have a nice frosty coating to prevent any dents or scratches that you normally would see on wood handles. The flat shader brush worked great for applying pigments wet to give a more vibrant look.

The only con I can say is that it may be a bit pricey for some, particularly the sets, but keep in mind you can buy the brushes individually as well as an alternative option. Check out the sets below!

I checked out the site and I like their brushes (from what they look like), but they're kind of expensive for what they are.. O_X" I was gonna look for a nice brush for blush/contour, and the one they have that I'd wanna try is $32.

The handles look a bit long in the pictures. Are they long in person?

The prices are not that bad. Seems suitable for people who are just starting out with makeup. =)
