Bdellium Tools Review

Every glow girl needs a fabulous set of makeup brushes, and I'll be the first to admit that finding the "perfect" tools isn't always the easiest of tasks.

I was recently introduced to Bdellium tools which are professional makeup brushes formulated with anti-bacterial technology. Right off the bat my first thoughts were " how awesome is that! " seriously, this was my first time running across brushes whose bristles are made with anti-bacterial protection. "The anti-bacterial protective coating creates a built-in guard against mold, fungus and bacteria that can gather on brushes." I received the Bdellium Tools Basic Essentials 7 piece brush set from their Studio Line.


Blusher Brush | #964S

This brush is designed for blushes, loose & pressed powder. It's large and the bristles are incredibly soft. What I loved most about this brush is the amount of control it gave me during application, it had a light feel but still allowed for even coverage.

Foundation Brush | #948S

Of all the brushes, this 3 toned foundation brush is definitely my favorite. It's made for liquid or cream foundations. I found it to work really good with my liquid foundation, It went on light but the brush itself still had a nice weight to it and was comfortable to hold.

Slanted Contour Brush | #942S

The Contour brush is perfect for highlighting and adding definition along the curves of your face. Its long bristles helped me obtain a more natural look when applying blush.

Tapered Blending Brush | #785S

This Tapered brush is ideal for blending eyeshadow's and creating an airbrushed effect. It did a really good job in effortlessly creating the look I was going for. It can also be used as a concealer brush, but I have yet to try that.

Shadow Brush | #777S 

I really loved  the Shadow brush because its so versatile and has very few limitations when it comes to applying eyeshadow. I was literally able to use this brush for almost every part of my eye including the creases! Which is really a good look for me b/c I normally apply shadow to my creases with my fingertips.. lol (don't judge me ) :o)

Small Angle Brush | #763S

The small Angle brush is really ideal for creating bold & defining lines. I prefer to use it with an eyeliner or shadow to line right above my top lashline. The angle really made it easy to create a straight & even line by simply dragging it across. 

Precision Liner | #540S

Let me just say that I prefer brushes verses those spongy wands that usually come with lipglosses etc. The Precision liner is a necessity for lipsticks & lip liners because it gives you even coverage and allows you to quickly retouch mishaps & mistakes!

Overall Review:

Glow: I absolutely loved the shape and feel of each brush. The bristles are unbelievably soft, honestly probably the softest I've ever felt on a brush!

Glare: No complaints, they've done very well!

Would I Recommend It: Absolutely would! You can purchase the 7 piece set, just like mine via Amazon for only $39.12.

Overall Glam: While I'm not exactly sure whether or not I'll actually see noticeable benefits from the "anti-bacterial" features, one things for sure is that these are some great high quality brushes and definitely worth purchasing, not to mention also affordable! Be sure to check out Bdellium Tools for more information & their extensive collection of brushes!
