The makeup bags that she endorses for Ecotools fit Alicia's personality, goals, and philosophy. Here are the reasons why:
•Bag is made with natural hemp material.
•Lining is made with recycled plastic (PET).
•Floral design is printed with non-toxic inks.
•Hangtag printed on tree-free stone paper.
Amazing, eh? Tree-free stone paper! I didn't even know you can make paper out of stone. These are amazing bags in the sense that they are all-natural but don't look unkempt, haphazard, or plain. They are the hippies of the cosmetic bag world, non-conformist but colorful and attractive. They are not ghetto at all. I love the classy beige-brown color and the colorful splash of flowers and leaves (apparently Alicia's favorite flower).
I am liking this cosmetic case. It is big enough to carry a lot of your makeup essentials, and yet small enough to fit in your average-sized purse. Perfect for everyday touch-ups.
5-Piece Brush Set and Bag
This is my favorite out of all the cosmetic bag variants from Ecotools. But of course, because it comes with 4 brushes that Ecotools claims as limited edition ones. These brushes are made from cruelty-free, synthetic hairs that are soft yet get the work done.
The Finishing Brush is great to use with mineral makeup and loose powders. This would be great to apply my finishing powders to set my foundation. The Blush Brush is actually a duo-fiber -like brush (similar to the MAC 187) that you can use to apply pigmented mineral or traditional blushes to give a soft, lit-from-within finish. Create a smoky eye with the Angled Eye Shadow Brush. Apply shadow to the outer corner of your eye, moving inward at an angle. Use the Lash & Brow Groomer to control stray brows. You can also use the comb to separate and lengthen lashes after applying mascara.
The brushes are also made with bamboo handles (a highly-sustainable plant), recycled aluminum ferrules and cruelty-free hairs. Love them!
Lastly, store the brushes in your earth-friendly Cosmetic Bag.
The train case fits a wide variety of products that you can use for storage in your home, or tote for a weekend getaway.
Lastly, the overnight bags are great to use for those quick out-of-town trips over the weekend and you just want to stuff all your toiletries in one bag. You can place your bath products, face creams, lotion, and makeup in this bag and still have room to spare.
I honestly love these makeup bags. They are stylish and yet cruelty-free and kind to the environment. Best of all, they are affordable (the biggest one, the overnight bag, has a suggested retail price of $19.99). I saw them at my neighborhood ULTA, and they are also available online at top retailer sites.
