Brushes That Care
Brand: 13rushes Combining a love for makeup and animals, two friends, Tay Yu Hui and Charlene Liew, decided to create affordable makeup brushes that are cruelty-free, of good quality and suited to Asian eye contours. Most synthetic makeup brushes in the market are made with nylon polymers, which have smooth surfaces that don’t capture makeup particles efficiently.
The ones by 13rushes use Taklon bristles that are developed with a textured surface to allow easy pick-up and release of powder particles. The one-year-old brand also works with factories that don’t process any animal products to make sure every element of the brand remains animal-friendly. Yu Hui adds that Caucasian eyes are larger and more deep-set, which means that other crease brushes on the market aren’t entirely suitable for Asian e eyes.
You can purchas purchase the brushes online (www.13rushes.com) o or hop down to the pop-up store at Space Invasion (#03-15/16 The Cathay) to try them.
