great gifts for $10 or less...ecotools makeup brushes

This line of brushes have been featured in our blog before and with good reason...they're a great item for not a lot of money.

All of the ecoTOOLS brushes feature animal-free taklon bristles, which are made from soft and pliable synthetic hair. Even the silvery metallic-y thing that holds the hair on the brush (called a ferrule apparently...who knew) is made from recycled aluminum cans.

The packaging themselves are reusable pouches and printed with plant-based ink, utilizing resources that minimize the negative impact on the environment.

Tell us that's not eco-fabulous.

Some new products we think would make excellent stocking stuffers are the Retractable Kabuki Brush ($7.99 seen above), which is perfect for applying face powder or bronzer.

The bristles are insanely soft and we didn't see any shedding when we pulled and flicked at it. It totally applied our blush on very smoothly.

The sleek retractable case, made of recycled aluminum, is definitely a plus for travel.

The 5 Piece Brush Set ($9.99) is another good stocking stuffer and perfect for travel.

The set comes with a mineral powder brush, concealer brush, eye shading brush, baby kabuki brush and hemp and linen cosmetic bag.

This set is the way to go when you are in a hurry and need something quick and easy to throw in your bag, or maybe for a second set of tools to stash away in your desk at the office.

Again with the soft bristles and non-shedding. Where else can you get four brushes for under $10?

EcoTOOLS can be found at Walgreens, Kmart, and Ulta stores or online at eco-tools.com.

I LOVE my eco tools brushes! The blush brush and the foundation brush get the most use of my collection. And you are right, the hairs of the brushes are soooo soft. That is what I like most about them, aside from how cheap they are.
