Review : Everyday Minerals Brushes

Here's my Everyday Mineral's Brushes that arrived last week (right side), while my old brushes on the left side for reference..



From Left :

Super Full Angled Brush
Flat top brush
Long Handled Kabuki
Foptic Brush


Description on EDM's Site:

EDM Angled (Super Full) Blush Brush - $8
"The Angled Blush Brush has plush silky bristles angled to flawlessly apply your blush or easily contour your face, and the 2.5” bamboo handle fits comfortably into your hand to give you optimal control."

Tip : I use this brush for bronzer to contour my cheekbones. The hair is firm but soft.

EDM Flat Top Brush - $10
"Unbelievably soft and incredibly dense, this flat top brush is the ultimate multi-tasker. From foundation to finishing powder, its plush and luxurious synthetic fibers provide the perfect coverage, resulting in a flawless finish every time."

Tip: I use this brush for powder foundation & mineral foundies for medium coverage. I really like this brush coz it cuts my prepping time in half.


EDM Long Handled Kabuki - $10
"Pamper your face with the luxuriously soft Long Handled Kabuki brush, while the densely packed synthetic bristles give you flawless coverage of your foundation, blush, and finishing powder. Vegan with eco-friendly 100% renewable bamboo handles!"

Tip: I plan to use this for Loose powders or higlighters for a sheer finish.

EDM Skunkless Foptic Brush - $10 (Discontinued)
"Your new bamboo "foptic" brush is perfect for blending application of all your EDM Minerals Face & base products. "Skunkless" means it is cruelty free! Made of super super super soft synthetic bristles!"

Tip: I think this is great for stippling liquid foundation. The hair is kinda long & flimsy but this can be fixed using an elastic band wrapped near the ferrule.


EDM'S Foptic vs. MAC 187 Dupe
See how long the hairs are?! =)

****************

My thoughts:

I really love them! EDM's brushes are uber soft.. so addicting! =P
Shed's 1-2 hairs on the first wash. No shedding on the 2nd wash.
Their brush hair doesn't have a weird smell coz its 100% Vegan, meaning No Animal Hair!
Their Brushes are made of Bamboo handles that's kinder to the planet (same with Ecotools).

I prefer Synthetic Hair coz:
> i read its best for sensitive skin. Animal hair can sometimes cause allergies.
> its much cheaper.
> no weird smell.
> cruelty free hair.


Next Brush review coming soon: Ecotools 5 pc Brush set
Bye for now ladies..
