Review: Everyday Minerals Small Face Brush Set

Monday, 9 July 2012


I have been a longtime fan of Everyday Minerals and have used their brushes frequently over the last few years.  They were one of the very first brands that I experimented with make-up wise, and I was very happy to hear of them coming to the UK via Cocktailcosmetics.co.uk
No more expensive shipping charges, hooray!

The make-up from Everyday Minerals is 100% natural, organic, suitable for vegans, kind to sensitive skin and cruelty free (BUAV approved).  They may be well known for their minerals, but their synthetic brushes with bamboo handles are becoming more and more popular with eco-conscious consumers too.

I was kindly sent their Small Face Brush Set* to try out.  The set comprises of three full sized brushes and comes in a handy cotton drawstring travel bag.  In the set are the following:-

Double Ended Foundation and Concealer Brush - A great 2 in 1 brush to take travelling with you. One end has a traditional flat foundation brush, ideal to using with any liquid foundation or tinted moisturiser.  The opposite end has a traditional flat concealer brush which is perfect to use with liquid or mineral concealers under the eyes and to cover up any blemishes.

Long Handled Kabuki - Instead of your usual short kabuki, this one offers a longer handle for more control and ease of use.   The synthetic bristles are super soft but dense enough to allow you to build up coverage with your mineral foundation or bronzer.  I have used the short kabuki from Everyday Minerals for a long time and although I still reach for it, I've been using this one more recently for applying both bronzer and translucent powder, and have been loving the results.  You get a really even, professional finish from using this.

Dome Blush Brush -  The domed shaped head on this brush lends itself perfectly for applying any powder blushers.  It's also great to use with bronzer and for subtle contouring too.  Like all of the other brushes, the bristles are incredibly soft.

Summary: These brushes are excellent quality and unbelievably soft and gentle on the face.  From past experience with Everyday Minerals brushes, I can personally say that I've never had any issues with any of mine shedding in the past and I've had mine perhaps three years now and they still look good as new!  They wash well, but do take a little longer to dry after a deep clean (best to leave them out on a flat towel for 24 hours).  Great brushes to invest in if you're looking to add to your collection or start one.

Everyday Minerals make-up and brushes are now available to purchase in the UK from Cocktailcosmetics.co.uk

  3. oooh, these look really awesome! i love anything that's organic. however, i have never seen this brand before! maybe it's the english version of ecotools -- they're very similar brands, i think. not sure if you guys have ecotools across the ocean, but they're pretty wonderful!
