“All the glamour and glitz of fur without the heartache. Each brush was created using the luxurious synthetic hair, which Too Faced founder, Jerrod Blandino, helped develop called “teddy bear hair.” This state-of-the-art fiber feels identical to the soft and silky smooth hair of real animals without the cruelty involved in making traditional “animal hair” brushes.
Set includes: Powder Brush, Fluff Brush, Angled Eye Shadow Brush, Angled Liner/Brow Brush, and a Small Crease Brush in a pink metallic brush/makeup bag.”
When I’m up for new make up brushes, this is going to be it! There are to many cosmetic companies out there making animal hair brushes and it’s totally uncalled for, they need to get the message. Synthetic brushes are excellent for applying makeup.
Brush Faux Pas
During the Total Beauty summit I asked a presenter if their brushes were cruelty free and was told that animals were brushed and the hair was collected from the brush to create their brushes (did you follow that?)
ummm, sorry, don’t buy it. I’m sure the company in question means well but I don’t trust for one minute that the hair is being collected in a humane manner when no one is looking… I’m sure I’m paranoid but it seems much safer to use synthetic and be sure that no animals are being abused to get their fur. In addition to that did the animals that are being brushed consent to this procedure and use of their fur? what is their everyday life like? do they get to play and roam or in tiny little cages that stink? If nothing else it’s animal exploitation for “beauty’s” sake and not something I’m interested in at this point in my life.
