@RoyalLangnickel Brushes

Continuing my IMATS haul, my absolute happiest and most exciting things I got are from @RoyalLangnickel 🙂 During their pre-IMATS media event, they shared with us lots about their new brushes and brush sets (which you can read about in my previous post about them.) In our lovely goody bags, they gave us the best gifts ever. Best thing you could ever give a makeup enthusiast… A GORGEOUS BRUSH SET! After they raved about their amazing new brushes made of  high quality natural and synthetic hairs, they gave us each a brush set of our own 🙂

All 11 brushes that came in the set come from their new pro line, SILK. Best part is that all these brushes were put together into a exclusive limited edition set by Kevin James Bennett and by exclusive I mean this set of brushes won’t be available anymore. They were only given to those that attended the event!

As if that wasn’t enough, while I was looking through the super crowded booth at IMATS, the amazing people at the Royal & Langnickel gave me ANOTHER brush set! I couldn’t find the synthetic flat top brush I was dying to get (because they had run out already by then) and the wonderfully generous Michael from Royal & Langnickel and Kevin James Bennett gave me their SILK Pro 25 piece Brush Set. I remember asking them “Are you sure you want to give me this entire set?! (which a gigantic smile/surprised look on my face)” and Kevin saying “Don’t question it! You should run with it when someone hands you something great like this!” Hahaha 🙂

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this set! It comes with all the brushes I consider necessities and pretty much any brush I would ever really need. I’ve been breaking in my brushes since I got them and I absolutely love how high qualities the bristles are and the types of brushes they put in this set. My favorites have to be the synthetic flat top (foundation) brush which I use to many more things than just foundation, both the powder and blush brushes, the lash comb, and the pencil brushes! I think this is my newest most favorite prized possession! Luckiest girl ever right? To leave IMATS with not just one but two fabulous brush sets 🙂

Whether you’re a makeup lover or a makeup artist, they have great brushes for everyone! One thing I love is that they have QR codes on every brush now! These QR codes will take you to a page that will give you info about the brush and how-tos. How great is that!

They also have a new line of Silk Pro Greenline which are made with bamboo handles making them eco-friendly!

Make sure you check out Royal & Langnickel’s brushes and their new website for yourself! Follow them on Twitter @RoyalLangnickel!

Support @YaleFox new Project :)


For the past 10 years I have been intimately involved with the Nightclub industry. As a touring DJ, I could easily get behind the velvet rope where society’s elite flock to. These are real nightclubs, not bars, or dance clubs. A nightclub does not sell alcohol, it sells sex and social status.

My project is a hybrid eBook meets documentary. Unlike traditional books which read left to right, this one also reads up and down. It’s highly interactive and the book asks questions and leads you towards the conclusion. There’s different ways you can go through the book, almost like a “choose your own adventure” story. It also allows me to interact with the viewers, and they can interact with each other as well.

The book will be available for all Apple iOS & Android devices.

The money is largely for creating the video and multimedia content, pre and post-production, and dressing it up as an Application.

It’s a new, intelligent and fun style of learning. Almost like sitting through a lecture but much more interactive and multimedia driven.

16 year old who started Kits of Kids in 2004 for the love of having fun with science! What a great concept and gift idea.

What is the best advice you can give to kids who want to do what u do: Follow your passion – don’t let others discourage you. Even though it’s not all fun and games, you’ll be so glad you did! You’ll get a lot of advice along the way, sometimes from places you wouldn’t expect. It really can be overwhelming, but take it with a grain of salt because in the end, it’s your decision and your idea/business. I know this sounds cheesy and everyone says it, but you really do have to fail to succeed. Some of the best lessons I’ve learned have come from “failures” – I wasn’t happy in the moment, but looking back, I wouldn’t be where I am without some of them.
What is your favorite quote that keeps you motivated? “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close to success they were when they gave up” – Thomas Edison and “As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others” -Bill Gates
What do you think is the key to being a successful scientist/entrepreneur: Keep in mind that nothing happens overnight, and fame or money isn’t a good way to measure success.
