Nima Brush- The Donna, Fuzz, Terrie & Harley Review


Hey Lovelies,

Beauty lovers all around Ireland will see the title of this post and somewhere deep down in their beauty psyche they'll stir up a little FOMO if they don't read this post...It's true! A true beauty lover will have a slight obsession with brushes...the tools of the trade, the magic wands that can transform your face and turn you into a better version of you for a day or just an evening, makeup brushes are my absolute love!!

To someone who is not at all into makeup brushes, you will have read that top paragraph and assume I have no life or that I am an OCD to buy the latest brushes whether I know what to do with them or my friend, are correct! I see a new brush, I want it...but let's not get too crazy I limit myself to two maybe three brands of brushes that this happens for but in the last 12 months none more so than Nima Brush

Niamh's first workshop in Citywest was a huge success!

I am going to pretend for a minute that I am the only obsessor of brushes here and give you a little background to Nima (just in case you live under a rock or to be fair if you are a newbie looking to invest or better still you are thinking of gifting someone with some brushes)

NIMA Brush is an Irish professional Makeup Brush company specialising in Professional Make Up Tools & Accessories. The company was established by long time Irish makeup artist, Niamh Martin, who has over 15 years experience of working as a professional within the Irish and UK beauty industry, as well as numerous years of teaching experience. So it is safe to say, Niamh knows her stuff and knows what people expect from their makeup tools and accessories.

Niamh’s aim was to provide fun, professional, and affordable tools to enable both professionals and non professionals alike to invest in high quality makeup brushes for their everyday makeup application needs.

After years of educating college students and professionals in the art of makeup application it came to the stage where Niamh wanted something more and, with the support and back up of a fantastic family, NIMA BRUSH was born!

NIMA Brush are manufactured using the most natural fibers and strongest brush ferrules. This will ensure your make up brush not only lasts for you, but is of the highest professional grade. Something else you may notice about Nima Brush is that they are instantly recognisable. (

There's myself with Nima Niamh herself at the event in June. Niamh has become quite a good friend as well as a fantastic business woman, I have been purchasing Nima since day dot of my blogging journey and will always support her hard work and want every single brush she ever launches.

Where you first see the word Nima in this post I have linked the website which I really encourage you to check out. There is a new website coming really soon and this will include videos on how to use the brushes so if like me sometimes you buy before you know what it's used for you can always go back and take a little look see afterwards. I will also link the Facebook page HERE  

So for today's post I am going to look at the newest of my Nima Brushes. In case you're feeling a little hard done by that I am only looking at four of the brushes then all you have to go is go onto the blog and type in Nima into my search bar you'll see there's many more a Nima Brush I have reviewed already with a lot making my favourites not to mention the two loves of my life for brows the Daneille and the Emma brush,..say no more people just buy them!!

The brushes launched at the event in June so of course I had to own them

The four brushes I want to look at today are the Donna €12, the Fuzz €12, the Terrie €16 and last but by no means least and possibly the greatest brush love you will have so far in 2016 is the Harley €19.

(all italic information is taken from the nima brush website to give an exact description)

The Donna: The Donna is a beautifully tapered blending brush handmade from brushed goat hair. Use this brush to apply shadow to the socket line of the eye and also to quickly and seamlessly diffuse out shadow for a perfectly blended finish. The Donna is the perfect blending brush to have in your kit.
Using a circular motion will buff out any harsh lines of eye shadow to create that perfect seamless smokey eye.

I think it was my heart that had me write about this brush first and I am telling you now, one in my collection is just not enough. It's so soft! I use it every single time I create an eye look in myself to blend out lines, it's white hairs pick up the colour so I need to clean it so often I was afraid it would start shedding but from using this brush for every single dark look or night look I have created since June it is in perfect shape. For €12 I think this is a total bargain and I will 100% pick up another at the beauty show. The tapering at the top means you can be more precise, sometimes over blending just spreads the shadow too much and everything becomes a 'blown out' look which is not what you wanted at all. Honestly folks if this was a scoring post this brush gets a massive 10/10 from me.

The Fuzz: The Fuzz is a large shader brush made from extremely soft Sable hair. This brush is absolutely perfect for applying eyeshadow across the eyelid. The tip of the Fuzz is also great for applying a transition colour into the socket of the eye and for softly smudging colour under the eye. Using the flat side of the brush, simply pat the eyeshadow onto the lid, and use the tip and a window wiper motion to apply a transition shade in the crease.

The Fuzz was and still is part of the elite collection basics set but was given it's very on individual brush and name due to it's popularity and I can see why. I don't know about the rest of you but a hard flat brush for applying eyeshadow can sometimes set my watery eye off and will undo all the hard work I put into my crease work and countless blending moves. The Fuzz for me allows me to apply a lid colour with that panic, it is so soft that you never have to worry as even if you do poke yourself in the eye it won't cause too much damage (trust me it's a point I need to make as I often do it)

The Terrie: The Terrie is a miniature version of our ever popular Flat Head Kabuki and is made from Taklon Synthetic fibers which can be used for powder or cream/liquid products. It is a non-porous synthetic brush that will not absorb too much product therefore preventing waste. This brush is best used for a more precise foundation application or for buffing out concealer under the eye or on smaller areas of the face.

Named after Niamh's wonderful and stunning brand ambassador Terrie McEvoy the Terrie brush is really good to have in your personal kit. I love a flat head kabuki brush to apply foundation, I think it makes your face look flawless and you can build layers of coverage if that's what you need. Sometimes if I don't want to add more product to my whole face, I find a full flat head kabuki brush will spread the product too much. The Terrie brush is the perfect companion so if for instance like me you get breakout flare ups at certain times of the month, when you are doing your makeup you can apply a small amount of extra foundation onto the Terrie brush and work it just into the small area to build that little bit of extra coverage. 

The Harley: The ‘Harley’ is a face brush handmade using brushed goat hair and is unbelievably soft. With its long wispy hairs this is the Creme De La Creme of face brushes. The Harley is extremely versatile and can be used for a Variety of different applications such as highlighting the raised areas of the face, for a light sweeping of blush on the apples of the cheeks, bronzer application and can also be used to create a soft shading effect to the contours of the cheekbones.

Last but by no means least is the stunning Harley brush. I loved this brush once I first saw it online. When I attended the Art of Nima event in June there was nothing else I HAD to return home with than the Harley brush. I was actually so scared I wouldn't get one before they sold out as I was convinced everyone would want one and you know what? They did! The Harley brush is almost, almost too pretty to use. The bristles are so long they just flow along your face. I usually use my Harley brush for highlighter as I just love the feel of the brush. It picks up the product really well without too much fall out as it's so soft. You can dust the Harley brush along your face not only for highlight that just happens to be my favourite product to use it with. For simple daytime looks I will use it for blusher just to give my cheeks a lick of colour so I don't look too flat faced.

I can only imagine the immense pride Niamh had in naming this beautiful brush after her little girl who I have had the pleasure of hanging out and getting sneaky cuddle off. It's such special piece to have in the collection and because it's a brush that not many other brands can even claim to have I can see it constantly selling out.


You can shop for individual brushes on the Nima website but also now you can buy the new release bundle for only €50 for all four new brushes. You can add a Nima tube (a must have for brush lovers who need to travel for an extra €15) Your brushes are always safe when contained in one of the tubes and they come in a range of colours. You can also go onto the website and custom build brush bundles so the brush world literally becomes your oyster so you only get what you really need which is such a good feature to have when selling so many brushes. We've all had the sets with at least 3 brushes we'll never use so this way that doesn't have to happen.

With the beauty show only a couple of weeks away, if you're planning a trip to the RDS and brushes are on your list then I really do encourage you to pop over to Niamh and the Nima Girls on her stand and check out the brushes and treat yourself. There are always discounts the weekend of the show so you will grab yourself a bargain and tools that I promise you, you will love.

If you have any questions on Nima brushes like which ones to get starting off or if there's any other info you'd like please do get in touch with me and if I can't answer I will be sure to ask Niamh herself.

It's not often that you fall for a brand that you are willing to invest in constantly regardless of what they launch even if you have 10 brushes just like a Nima Brush, it's not a Nima Brush so you gotta get it!

  4. Our marriage lacked understanding, it was like every normal marriage as long as I didn't say anything that my husband disagreed with or win an argument. Am always trying to know the ins and outs of his life as his wife, and it turned into a huge blow-out. Our divorce wasn't really about our lack of understanding according to my therapist, it was as a result of a spiritual separation. She introduced me to Dr. OKOKO for spiritual reconciliation/understanding, proper healing and cleansing of wounds left by husband. My therapist was so honest to me and never wanted to waste my time, she saw that I have been living in pain with my devastating marriage and my heart has ached for years.I was in dire need of permanent solution from Dr. OKOKO after he assured me of smooth and easy result within 48 hours immediately the spell is done. Like the honest man he is, Doc. proved my therapist right and brought back my husband exactly the way I wanted. My time with Dr. OKOKO was so magical, I never know anyone has the power to unit a broken home and heal a broken heart. Thanks to my therapist {Theresa} and Dr. OKOKO for making us a better couple and example to a younger generation,

    Please contact Dr okoko for help he is a trustworthy man
    or visit his web and be blessed you will also testify the good work..

  5. Its so unfortunate that my husband left me after five years in marriage. thought he finally left the house in the third year of our marriage just because i was unable to conceive. i wonder what happened to Andrea Delacruz my husband that makes him leave the house. he is a God fearing person and very humble. i know that leaving me wasn't ordinary. we dated for seven months and i never notice such character in him before i married him. i cried and wept through my days and night because i really love Andrea Delacruz my husband. in the process of crying and thinking, i recall that his grand mom never support our marriage, she never wanted me to be married to the family. i never give up and i prayed for God to intervene. one a faithful day it was a Thursday morning when my fellow college in my working place noticed my attitude and behaviour seems different from the real me and i never wanted to disclosed my Family issues but i shared with her my feeling and what i have been going through. she told me that something similar to these happened to her Elder sister and she told me that everything will be fine. she later invite me to her house to meet her elder sister then i opened up to her and she refers me to a man called Dr. Sambo and i did just as she said. i called Dr. Sambo immediately and he respond to my call in that moment and the first thing he said was 'WOMAN WOMAN' you have to believe and have faith that your problem will be solved. i asked, what should i do? then he said to me in two days time my husband will be back and i asked, Dr. Sambo is this going to be real? the last thing he said was that i will testify of his work. i did just as instructed and i watch for good forty-eight {48} hours. hmmmm, it was a good night time at 10:05pm within the days that Dr. Sambo told me that my husband Andrea Delacruz will be back, at first i heard the bell rings getting close to my door i heard someone saying HONEY!!!, it sound familiar i opened the door and i saw my husband standing and weeping in front of me. i was not surprised because its all i have been praying for him to come back home. Guess what in six days after i noticed my system and my body temperature is changed and i went to clinic for check up and the doctor told me that there is life in me which means i am pregna i really wants to use this opportunity to thanks Dr. Sambo so much and my lovely collage who directed me to Dr. Sambo if you have any problem or predicament that is worse or exactly like this you have been into, i plead you to contact Dr. Sambo
