Spotlight: Royal & Langnickel Revolution Brushes

Pro artists get ready for a game changer.  For anyone who ever used a synthetic brush and found it didn't pick up, mix or blend powder products the way they wanted it to, I introduce you to Royal & Langnickel Revolution Brushes.

These brushes are the most technologically advanced brushes in my collection. They were recommended to me by a fellow artist on

What makes these brushes so special?  

 One of the reason synthetic brushes of the past weren't as good at picking up powder products is because the hair was smooth. These brushes have a textured bristle that mimics real animal hair, minus the cruelty.  The handle has a matte texture, so the brush won't slip out of your hand if it's wet.

My favorite brush in the collection is the BX-66 which is very similar in style to the M.A.C. 217 brush, only made with synthetic, cruelty-free bristles.

Here is a closer look at some of the brushes in this collection:

 Above is the BX-66 brush, a stiff domed brush ideal for eyeshadow blending. This brush is a must for makeup artists and I suggest purchasing multiples to have in your kit.

The next brush (pictured above) is the BX-10, which is ideal for blush, powder or bronzer. The textured bristles pick up powder with ease, but because they are synthetics they can also be used with cream and liquid products. This brush, like all the brushes in this line fit very comfortably in the hand and are a professional grade of brush.

 Pictured above is the BX-105, I love this fine liner brush for applying gel liner.
 Note that each brush is clearly labeled with the number of the brush, on it's no-slip handle.
 BX-55 (above) is a pointed foundation brush, ideal for foundation touch ups. The handle is a medium length in comparison to my other brushes.
 BX-95 is a pencil brush, ideal for smudging shadow along the lower lash line.

 BX-90 (above) is a slimmer smaller version of the BX-55. I like this for blending eyeshadow, or applying under eye concealer. I've pictured them side by side above for comparison.

BX-110 & BX-125 (above) are push liner brushes ideal for pushing shadow or gel liner onto the upper lash line.

Above is a final look at the brushes including large and small traditional flat shader brushes. The Revolution line offers brushes available for purchase individually or in sets.There is a pro artist discount for qualified individuals.

Here is a video explanation by the designer of the brushes:

I truly found these brushes revolutionary, and think Revolution is a very appropriate name for the line. I hope you enjoyed this look at some of my pro brushes.


  1. Wow, these look great!!! I read about them when they first came on the market, but I don't own any. Great to see the photos of them. Thank you!

    1. Now that I've been using these for a longer period of time I can really say these are great brushes and super functional. The BX-66 is a really great blending brush, I highly recommend it for eyeshadow blending. I bought more at IMATS this year because I love them so much!

  2. Just ordered some! I'm excited to try them! This was great!
