Where I got mine: http://t.co/6ZJClIk Get it through this link and get $5 offyour whole purchase* (if it’s your first time ordering from iHerb!) It will cut down the price to $1.90 USD!!
Overview: This brush set, made by Ecotools, is 100% cruelty free. It’s made of taklon bristles and it has aluminum ferrules. It also comes in an eco-friendly case, which is washable! It comes with travel sized eye brushes: blending, creae, highlight, shade and smudge.
Price Point: I got mine at IHerb.com for $6.90 USD (+4.00 flat fee shipping up to 3 lbs). These prices vary depending where you get it. In Canada, I have only been able to find EcoTools at Rexall Pharma Plus and at Walmart, with prices ranging from $8.99 CDN to $16.99 CDN depending on what kit you buy.
Functionality: As a free lance MUA, I purposely buy brush kits so that I have many on hand, cutting the time off cleaning them in between clients. I have so many sets, but this set is super handy because it’s smaller than my palm when it’s rolled up! The washable brush case has a built in mirror, and 5 notches for the 5 brushes. It has a sturdy velcro closure that does not easily open up. I think the most important thing about these brushes is the quality of the brushes alone. They are super super soft. I have not come across any brush companies that sell amazingly soft brushes for such an amazing price. The fact that they’re cruelty free is a bonus! They do not shed, bleed or smell like anything for the matter. Because they’re taklon, you can use them with both powder and liquid/cream products! It also comes with what I consider the most important eye brushes. Usually, when you pick up travel kits, you’re jipped because almost always out of the bunch, you will get that eyebrow brush you don’t need or that sponge tipped brush that you never use! This is why this brush kit gets an A+.
so, any CONS? Availability. In the US, I’m almost positive this can easily be found in any drugstore. Being in Canada, I have to resort to ordering online (to get the best price) or sorting through the messy walmart aisles to find them. Also, I would have appreciated a liner brush in the kit because I’m a gel liner junkie.
