The Brown Faux Brush Collection is 100% Synthetic and is cruelty-free & vegan approved! No animal hair is used in the manufacturing of these synthetic brushes; therefore, absolutely no animals were harmed or used in any way.
An alternative to animal hair brushes…Taklon brushes have always been wonderful for the application of creams, liquids, and fine lining. However, they were not suitable for powders - until now! A new process has been perfected to deliver a super soft taklon bristle that finally does it all!
The Brown Faux brushes offer the perfect combination of softness and delivery. Not only are they super soft and full of body, they have the added benefit of being gentler on the skin. Odor and dye-free when washed, they have minimal shedding (if any). They clean & dry quickly making them ideal and safe for sensitive skin. They are the perfect complement to the company’s natural Mineral Makeup line! Perfect for Mineral applications in the treatment room!
The Brown Faux collection has short, thick matte black handles and shiny black ferrules. The luxurious and super-soft hair is 100% synthetic, yet feels looks & applies product like real hair. There are over 20 different styles in the stock line, as well as Kabuki style & mini travel versions.
