Rosemary & Co Paint Brushes Review (The Best Brushes I’ve Ever Used!)

Rosemary & Co Paint Brushes Review (The Best Brushes I’ve Ever Used!)


These are the only brushes that I use right
now to paint. In this video, I review the Rosemary and Co
Ivory and Evergreen paintbrushes. Let’s go. Good day, creatives. Justyn Warner here. These are the Rosemary and Co paintbrushes,
specifically Ivory and Evergreen. I’ve been using these for at least a year
now, and Rosemary brush is the only brush that I use. The lovely people at Rosemary and Co have
sent me a box of brand new Evergreen and Ivory brushes to review for this video. Number one, quality. I have two or three brushes that I’ve actually
been using for close to a year now and they’re still in relatively good condition. The quality of these brushes and the quality
of the hair that’s used, they continue to stay in the formation that I originally got
them in. I just, I love using these brushes because
I know what I’m going to expect every time that I use them. Just when feeling, even an Evergreen, and feeling
how soft it is, how the brushes are molded together and put together is just a creation
of art in itself. Number two, painting and use. You can tell the difference between using
an Ivory brush and an Evergreen brush. The Evergreen is a very soft, very soft brush. It has a lot of give on the bristles. You can really move the paint how you want
it to. You can add some glaze for like acrylics and
really move the paint along. The Ivory is a little more stiff. Definitely, I love using these brushes for
oil but painting with the two of these is all you need. Just a few flats for whether you’re using
oil or acrylic and some filberts. Those are probably my top two brushes. I use flats. I use filberts. Number three, durability. How long do the brushes last? I have tons of brushes that are stashed and
they begin to fray within a few weeks of using them, depending how aggressively I’m using
them, but most the time, I take care, good care of my brushes. I clean them very well after, and they last
me a very long time. I have a few Rosemary brushes that I’ve been
using for almost a year now, and they are still in relatively really good condition. Other brushes that I will use definitely fray
very quickly, and then I end up just tossing them in a bin, and I never use them again. Number four, price. These brushes are sold online, so they’re
not in stores and there’s disadvantages and advantages to that. You can’t just walk into the art store and
you know exactly what brush you want to get and you go and get it. It takes a little time. You go on the website, you order it, and they
come pretty quickly. I lived in Phoenix for a couple years and
they make frequent visits there to the art school in Scottsdale, so usually, you can
go and pick up whatever brushes that you need on hand. You could play with them all. You should see where they’re going to be traveling
to next. They do lots of traveling. They’re all over to get their brushes out
into the world but ordering online is the best bet. When it comes to pricing, I think their prices
are a little cheaper than most companies. Their prices are really good. You can compare them to other types of brushes. You could see what brands that you like and
compare them but for me, pricing was a huge thing for these guys. Number five, company. Thirty-five years making brushes, handmade
brushes, as a small business, I think is a huge accomplishment. The one thing that I really love about the
company is the fact to the customer service and the fact that you can DM them at any time
and you know that you’ll get a response, which is completely different than bigger companies,
trying to message them and ask certain questions and all that. Symi does an awesome job with the social
media. I can DM her at any point in time and she
actually didn’t think I was Olympian and had to Google me to see if I was telling the truth. They’re in the UK. They make all their brushes over there. In terms of the packaging that they send,
they send out a good amount of stuff. I usually get a sticker. She actually … Symi actually wrote me a
letter, handwritten letter, get a thank you. Their guide, which is an awesome guide, they
give these out for free. I know they just made a new one that I want
to get. Then, they do their newsletter type magazine
almost that they send out with tons of interviews, tips how to use the brushes, clean the brushes,
all those kind of things. The company, as a whole, they just put the
time into making sure that makes sure when I open up a box of their brushes, I feel special. Again, big thank you to Rosemary and Co. Symi,
thank you for sending me the brushes. Question of the day, what brushes are you
using? Would love to hear. Comment below. Let me know what brushes you’re using. If you like this video, give that thumb some
color. Share it with a friend. Share it with another artist. If you’re new to this channel, really consider
subscribing. Got some awesome content that is going to
be coming up that I cannot wait to share with you, guys. If you haven’t downloaded my free guide yet,
I actually put together a list of a bunch of mistakes that you need to avoid as an emerging
artist. These are 15 tips that I wish I knew when
I just started out being an artist that I think will be very beneficial to you. If you haven’t downloaded that yet, there’s
a link in the description below, and I’ll link that in the YouTube card. That’s all I got. Until next time, keep on arting and we’ll
talk later. Peace. Without further ado, let’s get into it. What was that? What? What was that?

    Great review Justyn. Those brushes looks like I could apply my foundation. I probably can't but they look really good.

    You crack me up man, great video. I just got my first Rosemary's and wanted to check out their YouTube. I was really impressed with the package when it got here (IN ONLY 4 DAYS!!!) pretty obvious you're buying from craftspeople who care about their products. And yeah, my package was the same as yours (dif brushes but) so now neither of us can feel special… or we both can! Thanks for sharing this, always better to hear another painter give an opinion than some company hype. Yes, I will subscribe, unless your videos get boring! lol – Dorian in Tubac, AZ

    i miss uuu

  • Elizabeth Hepola Roth says:

    I completely agree with everything you’ve said, my personal experience echo’s yours. After using my Rosemary brushes I’ve started making the transition to solely using them for oil & watercolor. Their Customer Service is fantastic. Customs wrecked the point of a brush & they quickly made it right. After that (and mainly because I do believe I get better results) I’m all in.

    Great video, thanks for you the review. I'm waiting for my order and I've never tried them before. I'm excited! Very cool that you're in CT, I visit there pretty often hope to bump into you someday, love meeting other artists!!!
