Aveda Flax Sticks Daily Effects Brush Set

Quick Review: Aveda Flax Sticks Daily Effects Brush Set

Aveda Flax Sticks Daily Effects Brush Set ($65.00) includes a Medium Eye Color Brush (#2), Brow & Lash Brush (#7), and Blush Brush (#9). The handles are made of 30% natural flax fiber and 70% polypropylene (90% is post-consumer recycled resin). The bristles are 100% taklon, which means they are synthetic and not made out of animal hair.

The bristles on all three are incredibly soft; no scratchiness whatsoever, and the blush brush was extremely dense. I liked the Eye Color Brush the most, because it picked up a good amount of color without puffing it everywhere. The blush brush could have been a touch firmer, but otherwise worked well for me. I have not tested these brushes for longevity or put them through extensive washing/using tests, though, so I cannot comment on long-term conditions.

Welcome to Swatch-all-idays! To start 2011 off on the right foot (or post, as it may be!), Temptalia is going through a backlog of products we have photographed, swatched, and often tested but in a slightly different manner. Quick reviews may be partially incomplete, such as a blush may only be swatched on the arm rather than shown on the face. It is our hope that what we are able to provide is still helpful!

If you want to know more about how products are evaluated, read out Rating System FAQ! :)

  • Product: 27/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: As set, it’s a nice value, because you’re getting three high-end brushes for about $20 a pop (while the face brush would certainly be more valuable).  They’re soft, seem sturdy, and didn’t shed.

  5. Cherokee

    I will definitely check them out at Aveda. I love the handles on them. I don’t like double ended brushes.

  6. Zoe

    They seem a lot like the Eco tools brushes, which are comparably much cheaper. I loooveeee my Eco tools brushes hahha.

  7. BethM

    I love these! If I didn’t already own more brushes than any one person needs, I’d buy these.

  8. Samantha

    wow these look exactly like eco tools brushes, which are a lot less expensive.

  9. Sami

    why was this disliked so many times?? I mean, brushes are different than colors, you can’t know how a brush applies unless yyou actually use this. And this got a pretty good grade…

  10. Renee

    Totally different brand, and don’t know if I can ask this here.. but what do you think of The Body Shop’s makeup brushes?

  11. Sam

    I go to the Aveda Institute and I got these in my kit… I really love them. There’s 2 sets of brushes, I have both and I use them all the time outside of school. They’re amazing.

  12. I love the handles, they looks so gorgeous!
