As I was walking around on Friday at IMATS I saw many companies selling their cosmetic brushes but what caught my eye and made me pause to molest the brushes were these beautiful green brushes from Bedllium Tools. I haven't brought my cameras down yet to transfer files to post so here's one of their official photos. Annelle's photographer took some pictures of their brushes for me so I hope to get those soon. The Green and Yellow Bambu brushes are among their newer products. I absolutely LOVE these brushes and am kicking myself for not picking these up while there. Next month at Cosmoprof I'll get more information on each brush.



Green Bambu also comes in Yellow Bambu and the only difference between the two is the price. If you like one color more than the other it's $10 more. ;) /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" /> Just kidding, it's an inside joke between Daniel, Edward and myself, sorry. lol

These brushes are so soft, I'm not kidding, every time I passed their booth I had to stop and molest these brushes and I'm so not joking about that. So while I don't have pictures from IMATS yet here are the official photos of the kabuki brushes. The brushes are sold individually and sold in sets. I'll have more information later up in the product review section and here in the forums.

I didn't get much info from these guys, but I had to wipe off some drool that Zadidoll left behind before getting these photos, lol.  She and Irene interviewed the bdellium team.  They have a new green and yellow dyed line, that has the quality of their other lines.  I'll let them add more info on this thread!

Drool is an understatement. If I could get a bedspread and sheets made out of the fibers used in those brushes I'd be a very happy woman.

The handles of the brushes are made from sustainable bamboo while the bristles are all vegan soft and 100% cruelty free. As I mentioned above the only difference between the Geen Bambu and Yellow Bambu is the color - one is green and one is yellow - other than that the two types are completely identical.

Those green brushes are GORGEOUS. I think I might need to invest in the set. I've needed a good set for a long time, and the price point is just right on these.

I think you would be very happy with those brushes. I'm absolutely not kidding how I couldn't help but touch those brushes each time I went by their booth. They are also known for their anti-microbial ones and these are not but if it's for personal use then it's not so much as a factor.

Awesome! I think I'm going to go with the 15 pc. set. Thanks for posting--this was a brand I wasn't all that familiar with. :) /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" />

I'm so happy there was a review! I've been curious about the brand and am eyeballing a new set. I'm slowly upgrading to better brushes and more of them. The 15th pc set would be great for me and the price seems pretty reasonable!

Really good... least the ones I have are. I also have some brushes from other companies at IMATS and of course random brands that I bought over the years. I think the bdellium ones will be the ones I'll be using from now on.

Ok, I have to ask: Compared to the softness/quality of the ones Neill is putting out?

Softer than Ve's but keep in mind Ve's was made by her with Crown Brush for use on a movie set where the brushes need to work harder than bdellium's seem to be more for the pros who work in the print/runway field where the makeup typically used in that field is different.
