EcoTools brushes are my personal favorite. They are inexpensive ($4-$16) and available at many local drugstores and superstores. EcoTools brushes are environmentally-friendly and vegan, made of cruelty-free taklon (synthetic) hairs, bamboo, and recycled aluminum.
EcoTools are made well and will last for years if cleaned regularly. The main disadvantage to this line is the limited selection; many of the best eyeshadow brushes are only available in travel sizes .
If you are a professional, passionate about makeup, or willing to spend a little more on your brushes, you might want to consider these eco-friendly and vegan brushes:
- Alima Pure Brushes - Made of taklon hairs and natural wood, these brushes are another great eco-friendly option. Prices are a little bit higher, ranging from $12-$29.
- Too Faced Brushes - Synthetic “teddy bear” hair and pink handles make these a fun option. Brushes are $12.50-$65.
- Urban Decay Brushes - All of this popular makeup line’s brushes are vegan, though the specific materials used are not listed. Prices range from about $16-$39 per brush.
- Branded J Brushes - Cruelty-free brushes made from taklon hairs with acrylic handles. Developed by a celebrity makeup artist, these brushes are available individually ($15-$56) or in sets ($91-$395).
