Seeing as I'm an animal lover myself (though I never could quite manage the vegan thing...vegetarian isn't as big of a deal to me, but giving up cheese is seemingly impossible), the idea of totally vegan cruelty free brushes really appeals to me. I know a lot of other bloggers only use cruelty free brands, so this is one to keep on your radar if you're always on the look out for animal friendly products to try. They are also PETA approved. Although I really am not a fan of PETA for other reasons (mainly their PR stunts and campaigns which have been pretty offensive--but that's a blog post for another time...maybe? I dunno), it does show that these are definitely approved for all serious animal lovers.
I was given this eye brush set from Nanshy and totally and instantly fell in love. Recently, I decided to upgrade my brush set and got some Zoeva brushes, which are fantastic for the skin and eyebrows, but I really needed something a bit extra for my eyes. The Zoeva brushes, however awesome they are, seem to lack a crease brush, which is absolutely essential for my basic, go-to everyday look (like, the one look I know how to do).
You can grab these brushes in one of two colors (black or white) and not only are they soft (and amazingly effective), but don't shed. REPEAT: They do NOT shed!
They are a bit on the expensive side, retailing at near £30, but they are an investment and in my opinion, well worth it.
