L.A.B Stroke Of Genius Brush Set

Tuesday, August 25, 2015
L.A.B Brushes were created by the US makeup artist, Brett Freedman who has worked with celebrities such as Sienna Miller and Taylor Swift. L.A.B brushes are created using fibre-luxe technology which is cruelty free; it means that the brushes are very durable and provide less product waste as the texture of the bristles enables great powder pick up and the bristles mimic the finest natural hair. The bristles are also extremely durable because the fibre technology doesn't lose it's shape or degrade like natural bristle brushes. 

I have the *L.A.B Brushes Strokes Of Genius Brush Kit (£18.99) which contains five eye and brow brushes which are all cruelty free, hypoallergenic and have a rubberised handle. Also the ferrel is supposed to be very durable, non-corrosive and resistant to damage which I am dubious about but hopefully it will mean that the brushes will withstand a thorough cleaning.

*L.A.B Crease Brush

Firstly, I love the design of these brushes and the crease brush is definitely one of my favourites from the set. The bristles are soft and smooth although they aren't the softest brushes I own by far! The bristles for this brush are quite dense but it is still flexible so it is great for placing a good amount of eyeshadow in a specific place and blending quickly and easily. I've only experienced a tiny amount of shedding with this brush. It washes well although it takes a while to dry - even when only spot cleaning. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5. 

*L.A.B Eyeshadow Brush

This brush is a fantastic shape for placing eyeshadow onto the skin, not so much for blending but just for placing the colour it's fantastic. Again as with the previous brush, the bristles are soft and smooth although not as soft as all the others I use. It is great for blending shadows under the eyes though and as a concealer brush, if like me you have a tendency to reach for new brushes to use instead of washing others...oops. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5. 

*L.A.B Brow + Lash Groomer 

A spoolie or brow groomer is an essential for me as I am so conscious of my brows when filling them in - I do not want them to look really dark or drawn on so a brow groomer is great for blending product through the brows. This double ended brush is perfect and great for travelling. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5. 

*L.A.B Brow + Eyeliner Brush

If I'm not wearing any liner or eyeshadow, just mascara, then I always apply a small amount of dark brown eyeshadow very closely along the upper and lower lash lines as it provides instant but natural definition and makes the lashes look fuller and thicker. The angled brush is great for this as it is so thin and precise. It is also great for black winged liner with powder or gel liner. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5. 

*L.A.B Pointed Eyeliner Brush

Winged liner is one of my go to looks and recently I've been loving the gel liner again, especially the Clinique Brush On Liner; this brush is great with cream/gel liner! It is a little thicker than the other liner brushes I have but it is great for getting a good even line however it isn't so amazing for a precise point, in my opinion. However it is great overall and it doesn't pick up too much product. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.

Overall, I think it is a great set and the brushes are obviously really well made and I think they will be really durable. I love the crease, angled and brow groomer brushes and I will definitely get a lot of use out of this set. The price is fantastic too for effective cruelty free brushes. 


Have you tried any brushes from L.A.B 2? What do you think of this brush set?

  1. I really want to try this as I prefer buying brush sets to individual brushes, you can never have too many make up brushes and from your review it seems like it is a great set!
