Eco Tools Makeup Brush Review

The best makeup brushes are usually made of natural hair or very high quality synthetic materials and tend to be expensive. But there are a few affordable brands that are sufficient for good makeup application without breaking the bank.   Eco-Tools is one of those brands. The Eco tools line of synthetic brushes tends to be pretty decent quality for its price point, which happens to be very affordable.

As a bonus, the products incorporate some environmentally friendly traits. So, if you like green products, this is a line to look at. Ecotools makeup brushes have bamboo handles with a ferule that is made from recycled aluminum. The brushes are packaged in biodegradable and a reusable sleeve.

I found the brushes quite adequate for makeup application and hair loss with them was minimal-something that can often be a problem with cheap makeup brushes. There is a good variety of eye shadow brush sizes, and the blush brush was particularly impressive. Almost everything in the line is available for under $10 and there are some cute kits and sets available.

Eco-tools also makes bath tools. You can find them at most big box retailers and some drugstores, as well as online.
