I’m so glad that I’m writing again about make-up brushes! I’m going to present you Bdellium Tools, a brand with a huge selection of different make-up brushes, that I discovered recently. I have tested their Green bambu collection, which I’m also going to review. At the beginning I have used these brushes on some clients, but later they became my personal all-around make-up brush set 🙂 I really like them! They totally exceeded my expectations!
Review of Bdellium Tools Green bambu mineral 5pc brush set
In general I was positively surprised by the very good quality of these brushes: they are manufactured very well, from the design to the quality of fibers. All brushes from the Green bambu line are made from eco-friendly materials – even their package – as you can see on the pictures.
They are packed in a plastic oval container and the labels are made from recycled paper. The brush handles are made from bamboo, which is one of the most eco-friendly plants. According to Bdellium Tools, their brush fibers are not treated with an antibacterial agent, because synthetic bristles are hypoallergenic. Very green:) Synthetic brushes are also a great choice for vegans, because they are 100% cruelty-free.
I received this nice green set of 5 brushes, that is named Mineral brush set. I’d like to point out that synthetic brushes are great for mineral makeup, but they can be used perfectly with other make-up products as well. This is just a note for all of you who are new with synthetic brushes 🙂 What I like the most about this set is their nice green color and the overall design, apart of their quality. From their color and package you can quickly notice they are from the eco-friendly collection. The Green bambu collection consists of many other brushes and sets, so you can build your own professional cruelty-free set!
In the mineral 5pc brush set you will find the following brushes which are in my opinion a very good selection of brushes:
Green bambu 959 powder blending
Green bambu 942 slanted contour
Green bambu 943 precision concealer
Green bambu 787 duet fiber large tapered blending
Green bambu 778 large shadow
With these brushes you can create all your day looks. My favorite brush from this set is Green bambu 959 (powder blending). This brush has very dense fibers and a rounded shape with an oval tip. It is very suitable for applying powder products, especially the mineral powder foundation, because its shape allows to buff the product into the skin. I have tried it as well with liquid products, because synthetic bristles allow a wider use, and I found that it works great for applying the liquid foundation, too. You get a flawless and airbrushed finish. This is why it became my personal must-have brush 🙂 When you need to conceal some spots or even dark under-eye circles, you will love Green bambu 943 (precision concealer). With its thin and rounded tip shape and stiffer fibers you will conceal any imperfection very easy. My second favorite brush from this set is Green bambu 942 (slanted contour), because of its size and shape. The angled shape of fibers allows you to create the sculpted effect when using bronzer or blush. I also love it for applying some powder or highlighter as well, because is not too large and it reaches even smaller areas of the face where precision is needed. Every make-up brush essential set should also have a classic shader with flat and rounded shaped bristles like Green bambu 778 (large shadow) for applying eye-shadows on the eyelids. I also use it if some shading is needed on smaller areas like sides of the nose. The last brush from this set Green bambu 787 (duet fiber large tapered blending) is also among my favorites. Because of its shape and 2 types of fibers (=duet-fiber) this brush is great for precise shading in the crease of the eyelids to get the smoky eye effect for instance. But I like it as well for applying highlighter on small areas or even for applying mineral powder concealer in the under-eye area, because it’s so soft and precise. You can use it with liquid and powder products both.
Along with this set I also received the new Green bambu 775 duet fiber shader brush. I love this generation of duet-fiber brushes because they help you achieve a flawless look with no strikes. Blending liquid products has never been so easy 🙂 This brush has the same width of fibers in comparison with the brush 778. The difference between them is in the fibers. The Green bambu 778 is made from soft fibers and is good for shading powder products, while Green bambu 775 can be used even with creamy products like concealer or cream eyeshadow for example. This versatility is achieved thanks to the duet-fibers mix where white fibers in the middle of the brush are stiffer, while green fibers around them are softer. These kind of duet-fiber brushes allow also the technique of stippling (= to apply the liquid product in dots or short strokes while tapping it gently into the skin).
In general, I like very much the softness of synthetic fibers of Bdellium Tools brushes. What is even better is that synthetic brushes don’t shed and you won’t find undesired fibers on the face. When you wash them they will dry quickly, too! So what do you wait to experience the new generation of brushes?
Many times I got questions from you which brushes to buy, especially for beginners? I really do encourage all of you to make a change and try out synthetic brushes. Not just because they are eco-friendly, but mostly because when you will try them, you won’t want to go back. Their versatility allows you many ways of using them and spread your creativity. Bdellium Tools has a huge selection of brushes where you can find the right make-up brush for every need!
