These brushes are crafted with such care for the environment -- each part of the brush is working toward sustaining the earth's natural resources. The bamboo handles alone have a surprisingly low impact on the earth, as bamboo can grow up to 4 feet each day! And the bristles are designed in animal-free taklon, which is a synthetic hair that is still amazingly soft and pliable. Even the pouches they come in are reusable and printed in plant-based ink!
My one complaint is that it takes a bit of effort to get the brushes out of those pouches. You really have to squeeze them out -- it took me a good 45 seconds until each was free of the packaging! But once that happened, I was quite pleased with what lay before me. My three must-have brushes from this collection are definitely the Angled Eyeliner Brush, which is perfect for turning your favorite shadows into liners; the Eye Shading Brush, whose slightly wider silhouette makes sweeping shadow across the lid absolutely easy and so much less time-consuming; and the Lash & Brow Groomer, which helps to get rid of any mascara clumps in seconds and keeps all your stray brows in place with a couple quick swipes.
All in all, these are definitely a must-have -- they're great for the environment, they're super-cheap, and they work wonders. What's not to love?
