WHAT ARE VEGAN MAKEUP BRUSHES AND THEIR BENEFITS?
Vegan makeup brushes are crafted with synthetic bristles instead of animal fur. We are proud that all e.l.f. makeup brushes are vegan, cruelty-free, professional-quality, and made with 100% synthetic nylon hair (we never use animal material in our products or brushes).
The benefits to going vegan with your brushes are in addition to a guilt-free makeup application that makes you look as good as you feel, vegan brushes are easier to clean, they repel debris and bacteria far better than animal hair, and are known to keep their shape better.
HOW LONG DO MAKEUP BRUSHES LAST?
Makeup brushes are not designed to last forever. Overtime, they get clogged with old makeup, dirt, and debris, causing them to lose shape and softness, spread bacteria on your skin, and give you a lackluster makeup application.
The typical lifespan of a makeup brush is about one-to-three years. That said, cleaning your brushes regularly (at least once a week with a makeup brush cleaner shampoo) will help extend their lifespan.
