Beauty Monday – Eco-Tool Brushes

by Valerie on April 13, 2009 · 3 comments

I can’t quite believe these brushes have been out for a year already, and I am just getting around to reviewing them now. What’s funny is that when last year I was thinking about opening up the scope of the blog to beyond beauty products, I was on this desperate quest for these brushes – now they are fairly easy to find, but back then, they seemed to be only at Walgreens, and for whatever reason, I never seemed tobe near one, and then I made it to a Walgreens but they were out. And by the time I got hold of some of these brushes, I was off thinking about other blog posts – you know, about food and life and fashion. And then I figured it was too late to tell you about these wonderful brushes.

Still, in the end, I decided it was not too late to tell you about them, especially because they seem quite current in terms of still being covered in magazines. I first bought the set you see below, which includes the blush brush, the eye shadow, the eye liner, the brow groomer and the concealer brush. I was very impressed with them in terms of how they compared with high-end brushes, especially considering the whole set was $12.99. I love that the handles are made of bamboo and the aluminium that holds the cruelty-free synthetic brush part is also completely recycled.

Then I decided to try the powder brush (which is on sale at and I really felt like that one was the complete standout – even though it has synthetic fibers, it’s much softer than any of the very high-end brushes that tend to use natural hairs. So overall, even if these brushes have been out a year now, I still had to tell you about them. Plus, they have new brushes in their line-up too, including a kabuki brush and another great set.

Thanks for commenting. They are indeed lovely – and I have given them as gifts and people usually like them. The powder brush is very soft and lovely.
