As I already own a lot of makeup brushes, news of new ones don’t interest me like they used to. When I was asked to try the Klix makeup brushes, I was intrigued. I had never heard of them prior to this, and was surprise when I read that they were, to simply put it, replaceable brushes. Now, you don’t actually replace the entire brushes, just the brush heads. The idea is that once worn out and dirty, the old brush head can be recycled and a new one can be attached. It’s sanitary and convenient. Some studies show that many women don’t clean their brushes – so this is one solution.
The brush kit I received came with 3 different brushes and 6 replacement heads, making for what is actually 9 brushes. Replacement brushes afterwards would cost from $10-$12 per pair. So let’s assume that each brush costs $5.50 (but keep in mind that prices do vary by brush). That is not a bad price for good quality brushes, assuming that these brushes will last through the snapping on and off of the replacement heads. I question the longevity because these brushes don’t feel as sturdy as solid brushes. I can feel a bit of movement where the head and body of the brush meet.
I have been using the foundation/concealer brush a lot lately and I like it (although not as much as my Sigma F80). I almost always wash my brushes daily, but I like the idea of disposable brushes because you can only wash something so many times before it becomes a mess.
These brushes didn’t come with cleaning instructions. I hope people do not get the idea that they can simply replace brush heads every few months and be done with it. You should still clean (or at least spot clean and sanitize). These brushes are great for people who do not clean their brushes, but almost impractical for those who maintain good brush care. They are good quality and priced well, I’ll give them that. Alternatively to using replaceable brush heads, however, you can buy cheaper brushes like EcoTools and replace them every few months.
What are your thoughts on these makeup brushes?
