Beauty Buy: EcoTools Retractable Kabuki Brush

Friday, November 04, 2011

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!
