Eco-Tools: Affordable Makeup Brushes Full of Quality and and Conscious

I have a thing for makeup brushes and own a ridiculously large number of them, but my favorites within that number are few. Usually they tend to be on the expensive side and not synthetic. But once in awhile a line comes along that is affordable and manges to put out a quality synthetic product, such as Essence of Beauty Brushes (Read Review). Eco-Tools is another one of those quality lines that is very affordable. Add a bit of environmentally friendly aspects, and the line is a real winner!

350 eco tools Eco Tools: Affordable Makeup Brushes Full of Quality and and ConsciousEco-tools make their brushes with bamboo handles, which provides both a low impact environmental effect and attractiveness. The ferule is also ecologically thoughtful, being made from recycled aluminum. The brushes come packaged in a reusable and bio-degradable sleeve; each with an earth-friendly tip on the back.

The synthetic taklon bristles do a perfectly good job of evenly applying makeup, and to my very pleasant surprise were very stable. Usually even the best cheap brushes lose a few hairs when they are new. That was not the case when I tried the eco-tools brushes. I was particularly impressed with the foundation brush. The last time I tried a synthetic foundation brush, I didn’t get great results, but this one worked just fine. In fact, it worked just as well as my favorite MAC foundation brush. I also have been using the powder brush nearly daily since I received it.Now here is the best part: These brushes run in th $4-$8 range and for $11, you can get a five piece set. That is pretty darn impressive!

Eco-tools also make a line of bath tools (I love the foot scrubber!) that are well worth checking out. The line can be found online or at select Walgreens, Kmart, or Ulta stores.

  1. synthetic foundation brushes and brushes in general are sooo much better than natural hair bristles. just don’t buy the cheap awful synthetic ones or else you’ll be scared for life. i recommend everdayminerals and lumiere for synthetics.

  2. That is so interesting to hear that you prefer synthetic brushes. I use a very good quality hair brush to apply Mineral make up (Minerelle which is a really natural pressed mineral powder) which I am really happy with but i am concerned about animal cruelty and I would like to try a quality synthetic brush.

  3. I went to RiteAid to purchase a few brushes, and next thing you know, I found these! They were so soft to the touch, and better yet, they’re cruelty free. I’ve just used them and washed them, and are currently drying, bamboo-spindle up (so that the water won’t seep into the bamboo and damage it). Hopefully they’ll retain their same softness. And damn — $10.99 for a set! That’s a steal right there.

  4. I really want this. It’s a damn shame they don’t sell it in the Philippines. But I’m waiting for the order I placed to come in from EBay. :) The review for this product was so helpful, that I’m literally bouncing just hoping for my own set!

  5. where can I buy Eco Tools reusable Eco Foam cleansing pads? Either online or what stores carry them? Hve been looking both options. Thanks,Pam

    Pam, Ulta stores carry Eco Tools. I have also seen them in some Target stores.
