They make their brushes using a synthetic takon bristle and while I always have heard that sable is “best,” I honestly don’t notice any significant difference after spending a few weeks trying out the tapered foundation brush. Maybe professional makeup artists do, but I don’t. I will say the eye shadow brush isn’t ideal for piling on the pigment, but if you use a lighter touch with your eye makeup, it does a fine job.
Aside from the bristles, he handles are made of sustainable bamboo and even that little aluminum ring thingie along the band is recycled. And the company is a member of 1% for the Planet, which is always nice.
If you’re ready to upgrade your brushes or looking for a cool gift for your save the planet fashionista friend, this is a very nice option. Especially with a five-piece cosmetic brush set in the $10 range at Target. Now go get your face on. –Liz
