Review: Eco Tools

Recycled Aluminum Retractable Kabuki ($8.99)- 100% taklon bristles are cruelty free and the case is made from recycled aluminum. This brush feels like velvet. It sets makeup perfectly, mineral or loose powder. It's also great for applying bronzer because the look will be more diffused and soft. I LOVE this brush. I don't know how I lived without it actually.

Face Candy Grade: A+

Bamboo 6 Mini Brushes ($3.99)- Once again, 100% taklon bristles and bamboo handle. Even the sleek ferrule (I had no idea that's what the silvery thing was called) is made from recycled aluminum. They can be used for eyes, lips and face. I am one of those people that mysteriously looses all the plastic applicators that come with eye shadow. (I also throw out all brushes that come with blush.) I open the compact and they're gone. So these are a great alternative.

Face Candy Grade: A+

12 Cleansing Sponges ($2.99)- Made with Soybean Oil and 100% Cotton. Great for cleansing and removing makeup. They're reusable, all you have to do is rinse the sponge and air dry. You should replace monthly. These are soft on skin and great for travel.

Face Candy Grade: B

Bamboo 5 Piece Brush Set ($11.99)- 4 100% taklon bristled brushes with bamboo handles. Includes a Mineral Powder Brush, Concealer Brush, Eye Shading Brush and a Baby Kabuki in a cotton and hemp linen bag. I especially like the Mineral Powder Brush, which I use for blush. I was watching Laura Mercier on TV and she did blush on this chick and she applied it by holding the brush vertically and tapping it on the apples of cheeks. Gently tap the brush in a bright pink powder and you'll get a soft, natural flush. The Eye Shading Brush is perfect for blending shadow together, using the windshield-wiper motion or for a softer application of a deep or bright color.

Face Candy Grade: A

Overall, eco tools are awesome. Totally affordable and deliver great results. Available at drugstores.

I have to try this. I review a lot of makeup from companies but never tried these. I wonder if they are at Sephora?
