in Brushes etc.,Natural,New on shelves

I’m late for Earth Day which was yesterday 22 April 2008 but hey, better late than never I say! My highlight is EcoTools makeup brushes. I’m not the most ecologically friendly person but heck! I’m sold on these makeup brushes!

ecotools EcoTOOLS makeup brushes

I first saw them on a Google ad (whoever said these ads were of no use?) and then, read some reviews about them. EcoTools (or ecoTOOLS as per their logo) makeup brushes are made from natural and recycled materials and the bristles are cruelty free.

Essentially, the handle is made from bamboo, the ferrule (that’s the metal part) is made from recycled aluminium and the bristles are made from synthetic taklon fibre and are therefore 100% cruelty free.

The reviews I’ve been reading have sung nothing but praises for these Eco Tool makeup brushes. Users say that they do the work well, and are even comparable to high end department store brand brushes and the brush heads are very soft.

Further, they are cheap. Retail prices range from US$19.49 for the set to about US$10 for the powder brush and US$5 for the eyeshadow brush. Apparently, there are even discounts off these already cheap prices sometimes.

Now for the clincher. They are only sold at USA drugstores!! Waahhh!! I want them! icon sad EcoTOOLS makeup brushes Does anyone know where I can get these online (that ship outside of the USA)?

Update: Ecotools brushes are now available in Malaysia.

I paid a lot of money for my set of brushes. I thought they were good investment since I won’t buy brushes a lot if I have good ones.

Well, I would love to have those. I have always liked brush with light natural wooden handle

These look very nice – thanks for the pointers. Just was thinking it was time to get new ones. Sounds easy to find in drugstores. Thanks.

I read a lot about this, and have been looking around. Alas to no avail. I checked Walgreens.com and they don’t ship outside of US :(

msnotty: Welcome! If you know where it can be found do let us know.

Andie: Yeah I agree good brushes are a great investment. These actually got really good reviews and they are cheap and cute. Sigh…

Mary: Welcome and I think these will be nice brushes.

Tine: Walgreens does ship international but at $19.99 for first 10 pounds! ack!

Hello! The make up brushes are sold on Drugstore.com They dun ship internationally but in Sg, we normally use VPost or ComGateway to get our US purchases. They provide a US address where u can ship your purchase to and from there they will in turn ship to Singapore. You’rein Malaysia? Not sure if there is a similar company doing this there.

Hi i found your site today while browsing for reviews on which Jap brand e/s palette I should buy.

You can find the ECOTOOLS brushes at ULTA. I believe they shop international but u might want to check their website. I went to Ulta today myself but was dissapointed they didnt have any more set brushes and only one e/s brush so I didn’t buy any. Anyhow ULTA also is having their promo right now with BOGO. Goodluck

P.s I love your reviews!

hey i went to 1utama yesterday and GUESS WHAT?? I found these ecotools brushes hanging inside Shins (i’m not sure though on which level Shins is located, just use the cool mappy thingy they have in 1utama and locate Shins) . They have a whole range of it! The 5 piece set was about rm80++ i believe. How affordable! I was literally shocked, and was excited at the same time. Never knew they have it here in malaysia! Unfortunately, I used up all my money that day T.T so i’m gonna go get it later when i’m done pokai-ing =.=

Hi guys,

I bought my set today, the 5 piece set at Shins in Midvalley. It costs Rm85, and they sell the same set, only the brushes are inside this wooden holder – for Rm88! I started using mine today, and by gosh, they are really smooth and soft! I’ve been tempted to buy some MAC brushes but these are so much more value for money!

I highly recommend these brushes, they work wonders girls!

I find Shins sells them too expensive but its great if you want instant gratification :) The ones I’ve tried are the Blush Brush and Retractable Kabuki. Both are nice.

Just came across your blog. I hope you know that EcoTools are widely available across Canada now – try Zellers, Walmart, Loblaws, Lawtons, Jean Coutu and many independents!
