EcoTools, a reliable maker of affordable brushes, is out with new makeup brushes for 2016. The big change here is that they see this year in hues of deep green.
Given their low prices — the top-priced item here is the full set for $14.99 — I always like to pick up a few EcoTools as extras for blending, extra colors or what-not, and on occasion, they have unique toe shapes. Also: These are a great gift for young girls and teenagers who like to play with makeup.
You can shop all of EcoTools value brushes online here.
Nothing strikes me as particularly new in that department here, except, perhaps the $9.99 Blending and Bronzing Brush.
Each of the brush sets features a ‘Get-the-Look Guide,’ providing step-by-step tips to inspire users’ makeup routines. Looks are meant to highlight natural features and range from “The Simply Natural” to “The Glamorous Glow” or “The Smokey Eye” to “The Soft Contour.”
Each EcoTools makeup brush features “cruelty-free” fibers and are made with responsible materials including bamboo handles and recycled aluminum ferrules. Four new products join the line in 2016:
Blending & Bronzing Brush: The duo-fiber brush combines a mix of ultra-soft short and long bristles to pick up just the right amount of makeup, allowing for a buildable application. Ideal for flawless full coverage or a sheer wash of color to perfect an all-over even finish. ($9.99). *Website says they are synthetic*
Brow Shaping Set: Groom, fill, sculpt and define natural brows. The Brow Shaping Set features a doubled-ended Brow Sculpting Brush, a Brush/Comb Duo and three unique brow stencils to make it easier than ever to achieve natural, beautiful brows at home. ($6.99) *Website says they are synthetic*
Precision Blush Brush: Features a unique square cut bristle head for precise pickup and application of color. The multi-functional brush works with your blush of choice, including creams, mousses, liquids and powders for an effortless glow. ($7.99) *Website says they are synthetic*
The Glamorous Glow Set: EcoTools is releasing a limited edition version of its popular Lovely Looks collection featuring five brushes that offer beauty lovers every tool they need to create a radiant look of their own including a Foundation Brush, Powder/Blush Brush, Shadow Brush, Flat Eyeliner Brush and Lip Brush. Each features a beautiful eye-catching ferrule design, and the smaller brush handles make the brush set perfect for travel or touch-ups on-the-go. ($14.99) *Website does NOT say whether these are synthetic or not, just that they are cruelty-free, which could mean a lot of things.*
