Best Affordable Drugstore Makeup Tools

Sometimes your makeup tools are equally if not more important than the products you work with. A common misconception however, is that you have to spend tons of money to get quality tools. Don’t get me wrong, beauty blenders and MAC brushes work wonderfully, but at $20 a sponge, that needs to be tossed within a few months, it quickly adds up.

These products from Eco Tools work just as great for a small fraction of the cost and are conveniently available at the drugstore. The Eco Tools sponge has received tons of hype and is by no means a new product on the market, but it continues to get great reviews. I use this sponge all the time and I can definitely attest to the hype as well. It leaves you with a flawless makeup application and doesn’t soak up all the product although it is definitely on the squishier soft side. I am always happy with my makeup when I use this sponge and love the finish it leaves. It makes all your foundations a little glowy-er than before and is great to slightly sheer out the coverage.

More recently I decided to try out these brushes and was extremely happy with the results they gave. The bristles feel SO soft, like inexplicably soft, and of great quality. In fact, these are softer than some of the more higher end brushes I have used. These brushes from Eco Tools come in a pack of three and are less expensive than purchasing just one higher end brush. They are extremely dense and I find that they are a great tool to use with thicker more full coverage foundations as to push around the product and maximize the coverage. With these brushes, a little really does go a long way with your products and it leaves the perfect amount behind for a flawless application. While I can’t really say anything against using these for powder I definitely suggest them for cream and liquid products (as suggested by the brand anyway). In this Eco Tools 360 Ultimate Blend Kit you get a brush for foundation, a brush for cream blush, and one for concealer.

Bonus points in that all Eco Tools products are vegan, cruelty free, and made with recycled and renewable materials, including the materials used in their packaging. For the price, quality, and sustainability, I think that all of these tools are 100% a must.

Let me know if you have tried these products or any others from Eco Tools. What are your thoughts and recommendations.
