We are starting a new series, Y&L Style Picks, where we share our favorite tools, pieces, and products that will keep you looking and feeling stylish. To start off our series we have our favorite travel brush kit by EcoTools. This 5-piece set includes a baby kabuki brush, blush brush, concealer brush, and shadow brush that fit nicely in the canvas pouch. The handles are made of sustainable bamboo, and the bristles are 100% cruelty free (made from synthetic but oh so soft fibers). Another bonus, EcoTools is a member of 1% for the Planet, meaning they donate 1% of annual revenue to environmental causes! Currently EcoTools’ 1% goes to EarthShare and Wildlife Alliance.
These brushes are affordable and easy to find, and make fantastic stocking stuffers. The 5-piece kit can be picked up at most Targets or Whole Foods, or ordered online at Amazon for around $10. It’s so nice to have eco-friendly brushes that fit conveniently in my purse or carry-on luggage without spending a fortune. The brushes are perfect for mineral makeup, and the only brush we are missing is one for applying gel eyeliner (oh well, you can’t win them all)! We recently bought these for when we are traveling, and had the chance to test them out—we were not disappointed! Foundation and blush blend nicely, and concealer is easy to apply with this set. And if you are feeling creative you could personalize your canvas case with fabric paint or stamps.
What do you think? Have you tried these brushes out?
