In my Makeup Show Haul post, I asked you guys if there were any products you wanted to see reviewed. An overwhelming amount of you wanted to see a review on my Bdellium Tools brushes, so here it is! If you want a super quick review, then here it is: these are awesome and you need to try them out. You will NOT regret your decision.
When I was new to the makeup scene, MAC brushes were like the holy grail to me. So soft, so fancy looking! But SO ridiculously overpriced. That obsession ended reeeeeal quick. Then, last year at The Makeup Show, I saw some Bdellium Tools for sale and decided to give them a try. And they were super affordable! I saw a lot of dupes for my favorite MAC brushes, so those were the brushes I bought. And you guys: they were so amazing. They're really soft, well-made, and crazy affordable. And they're vegan! Does it get any better than that?
So this year at The Makeup Show, I made it my resolve to purchase a lot more Bdellium Tools brushes. And for less than $75, I scored ten brushes. How insane is that? I don't think I've ever come across a brush from Bdellium Tools that I wasn't completely in love with. Of course, if you're trying to figure out which brushes to try from them first, here are my recommendations: The Studio 776 Blending Brush is pretty much my go-to brush, and is a great dupe for the MAC 217. The Studio 785 Tapered Blending Brush is another favorite of mine, and is also a dupe for the MAC 224. As for face brushes, I am loving the Studio 974 Tapered Powder Brush , which is great for contouring and applying powder.
If you're a makeup artist or a makeup newbie looking to add some brushes to your collection, Bdellium Tools is a great starting point. Affordable, soft, and well-made... What more could you ask for?
Have you ever tried anything from Bdellium Tools? Which are your favorites?
