Eco Tools Brushes-Go Green!

.



I love Eco Tools, although I DO wish they put more products out there of their line that cater to the makeup market because it's just fabulous! And the best part is that you know you are doing your part in helping preserve the Earth's natural resources because their tools are made by natural material such as bamboo (such as the handles), the ferrule is made by recycled aluminum, and the bristles itself are synthetic man-made taklon bristles.

I have talked about Eco Tools in the past, and I recently bought their 5-piece set which includes 4 makeup brushes: a baby kabuki, a mineral powder brush, a blending eyeshadow brush, and a concealer brush (which could also be good for applying loose pigments wet!), and a pouch made out of natural cotton and hemp.

So you may ask:

Are they soft? How do they compare to other brushes such as MAC?
A: They are REALLY soft! They are not scratchy at all and the best part is that I personally have not experienced any shedding of the bristle hairs when washing these brushes. They are just as good as MAC, I mean MAC brushes, expensive as they are, are not the BEST brushes. They too, shed and get scratchy after awhile. Their face brushes are great, but their eye brushes are not top notch on my list. I use Crown Brushes which are just as great and A LOT cheaper too. But I like how I can take comfort knowing that the Eco Tools are environmentally friendly. :)

How much are they?
A: This set alone was only $10. For the ENTIRE thing. And individual full size brushes are anywhere from like $4.99-$8.99 just to give you an idea of how much they usually run...

Where can I find them?
A: You can find them at Longs, Walgreens, Target, as well as other similar stores.

AHH! I want those Ecotools!! I've been eyeing them for so long~

Actually, Ecotools just released an even newer product but I've only seen it at Walgreens. I noticed they put it up on shelves this week here in Memphis. It's an eyebrow kit that comes with a bamboo mirror, eyebrow scissors, tweezers and small pouch. I'm not sure how much it is as they hadn't put up the pics. Will try to take a pic of it.

I have that same mineral brush set you got but I wasn't as impressed with it as I was with the first set of brushes (which I adore).

I've always been reluctant because the 5 piece set costs $15 at Ulta but at Walgreens they are only $11!! I will definitely purchase some~

I received this set and the retractable kabuki brush from ecotools several months ago and I LOVE it! I love the blending and concealer brush, and the big retractable kabuki brush has quickly become my favorite! This is a great set!

Aradani said...

I found that the eco tools travel kabuki brush is the best one out of all of them. It's so soft and the thickest one out of them all.

Katrina said...

Have you tried the retractable Kabuki by Eco Tools yet? I haven't seen them in TX, I think it might only be in CA. Supposed to be amazing as well. I hope this set comes out here. Thanks for the review!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Ecotools brushes!!!!

Mayaari sent me a pack of these and they are sooooo nice. They make awesome stocking stuffers, too, don't they?

musicalfanlovesminerals said...

i've been eyeing this for a long time but it's not available here :(

Jamie said...

I actually went to Rite-Aid and picked up these brushes but when I got back home and checked your blog I realized that my set is totally different than this one. I got the one with a blush brush, eyeshadow brush, concealer brush, eyelash/eyebrow brush, and an eyeliner brush. I think there are two different sets but I haven't been able to find this exact one. Somebody let me know where you can find this exact one!! I wanted this one but am happy with the one I bought.

Fabuless Beauty said...

I have the other EcoTools brush set..which I love!

mεℓissα said...
