Giveaway and Review: Eco Tools 5 Piece Brush Set! (CLOSED)

I'll admit it, I'm a bit of a makeup junkie. And as most makeup addicts know, having the right makeup (and tools) makes all the difference. So throw away that blush brush you've had since 7th grade and check out Eco Tools!!! :)

I was recently given some samples of the new Eco Tools line and I was amazed at how soft the brushes were! And they didn't tangle or leave behind pieces like my old brushes did. They are made from animal-free taklon (synthetic hair) bristles and the handles are made from bamboo!

My favorite product was the Recycled Aluminum Retractable Kabuki Brush ($7.99) pictured below. It worked especially well with my powder foundation and picked up just the right amount. It gave me a natural finish on the first try! Eco Tools can be found at Walgreens, (Great way to use those Walgreen's Register Rewards!) Kmart or Ulta stores or Eco-tools.com!

Eco Tools is giving away a 5 piece Eco Tool brush set (pictured at left) to one lucky Frugal and Fabulous Reader! This pint size set has all of the necessary survival tools for any adventure. :)

"The entire cosmetic accessory collection features innovative earth friendly materials which make everyday beauty routines a little greener. The brushes and sets are housed in reusable pouches and printed with non toxic ink, utilizing resources that minimize the negative impact on the environment. ... Eco Tools has joined with 1% for the Planet and donates 1% of their annual sales to environmental organizations that create a healthier place to live."

Want to this fabulous brush set?!

I have 3 sets of brushes right now. One set that I've had for probably 5 years.... don't really use them but can't bear to throw them away because they were EXPENSIVE. I have another set that's about 2 years old and then a set that is about 2 months old..... I'm a gadget addict!

OK, it's not that my brushes are that old, it's that my daughter and I use them almost every night to play make-up. She brushes them on my face, her face, my head, my feet...and then I use them the next morning.

Stacy said...

I would really, really love the Bamboo Powder Brush. My powder brush is just a nub now since the handle broke off well over a year ago. However, I'm ashamed to say that I've probably had this sad little set for well over a decade....what can I say, I stick to what I know. Can't even imaging how many little face germies are swimming in those brushes. They've probably multiplied well into the millions by now. Ew, gross huh? Please, pick me!! If I win these brushed, I will gladly pitch the others, nubby powder brush included....

I'm currently using the set of max factor brushes we signed up for in our fat wallet free sample days. So I guess that makes them about 3 years old.

This 5-pc set is the one I want to try - I love the little case they come in! augustgirl01 (at) hotmail (dot) com

Heather said...

My blush brush is, well, unsanitary it's so old. I got it when Bath & Body works used to sell makeup in their stores (maybe they do again, haven't been there in awhile), when I was in high school. And I wasn't a senior either. Probably sophomore or junior. So that would be...10 YEARS OLD. Excuse me while I go throw it away right now. augustgirl01 (at) hotmail (dot) com

These would be great! I have never had a "good" makeup brush! The mineral makeup brush looks like something I would use.

I don't wear makeup but my daughter does and these would be great for her. She'd also probably like the 6-piece on the go set since she travels a lot for work.

Wow, these brushes look great & are super affordable. I would try out the Bamboo Angled Eyeliner Brush... I use these angled brushes to fill in my brows & this one looks nice and sturdy!

My brushes vary in age.. the newest ones are probably about a year old (these are the ones I use frequently), the ones that I only use occasionally are pretty old, in fact, so old that i'm not sure how old they are!
