Beauty Buy: EcoTools Retractable Kabuki Brush

EcoTools brushes are definitely my favorite drugstore makeup brushes. If you've ever tried one before, I'm sure you would agree with me. The  brushes are 100% cruelty-free and environmentally friendly! The bristles are synthetic but they are so soft. The handles/packaging are made from recycled materials. Plus it's affordable and you can find it at any drugstore (or Wal-mart).

One of my newer favorites from EcoTools is their retractable kabuki brush. I've had this brush for a while but only recently started using it regularly. I like to bring it with me in my makeup bag. It's a great brush to have especially if you're on the go. 

It's multi-purpose. I've been using it to touch up my face with my Pur Minerals 4-in-1 pressed powder throughout the day, but it can also be used for blush or bronzer.

Like I said, the packaging is great if you're on the move. It retracts into the barrel and has a lid so you don't have to worry about damaging the bristles while it jostles around in your purse or travel bag.

Have you tried EcoTools? What's your favorite brush? :)

On another note..

On October 4th, 2011, Starbucks introduced this new reward program in Canada. Basically, you collect stars with every Starbucks purchase and once you've accumulated a certain amount, you get certain rewards. There are three levels: welcome level, green level, and gold level. I won't explain all the details, if you would like more information you can go here. But basically the main differences between green and gold is that with gold you get a free drink with every 15 purchases and you get a shiny gold Starbucks card, personalized with your name. That's it really. Nonetheless,  I made it my personal mission to get to the gold level as soon as possible.

Yesterday, I finally achieved the Gold Starbucks reward level. I am almost ashamed of how proud I am to say that. It took about a month. Though if we count the actual days, it took much less because the majority of times that I went to Starbucks was when I had class (I would have multiple purchases per visit).

Now, I am just waiting impatiently for my gold card to arrive. Apparently it could take six to eight. And now that the chase is over, I'm already losing interest.

Have a great weekend everyone!
