Bamboozled: Sonia Kashuk eco-friendly brushes
April 28, 2010
Last year Sonia Kashuk released a set of brushes made to look like coral. This year she ups the ante with bamboo-shaped brushes made from, well, bamboo. They also fit neatly into cork bags.
This is a great concept that I wish more makeup companies would adopt - not only are the brushes unusual looking, they're made from green materials. I mean they don't have to look like bamboo or be made from it necessarily, but brush design seem to be the main thing cosmetic companies tend to overlook - the handles are always a plain shape and there's very little color (with the exception of Sephora's and Lancome's limited-edition colored brush sets.) I have to say I'm really digging the cork bag too, although it kind of makes me want to stick push pins in it. ;) What do you think?
