Previously, we’ve gone years without one new makeup brush hitting the market. That’s so not the case with 2016, when there’s been a new launch nearly ever week. We’ve seen whimsical unicorn brushes, cult-y Harry Potter makeup “wands,” but, the new Bdellium Tools I Am First brush set may be your best brush investment yet.
California-based makeup tool company Bdellium Tools created a limited number of brush sets that carry a powerful message. The Bdellium Tools I Am First brush set doesn’t just make you look good, it helps you feel good by reminding you how beautiful you are every time you blend, buff, contour, or powder your nose. While these seemingly simple makeup brushes aren’t decorated with any glitter or gold detailing and don’t come in this year’s trendy rose-gold hue, they’ll still be able to brighten your day. Not only are the handles a cheery shade of yellow, but they’re also stamped with a positive and motivational affirmation. So whether you’re in need of a quick confidence boost before a big interview or just a small reminder of how awesome you are, these brushes have your back. The declarations include: I Am Confident, I Am Determined, I Am Happy, I Am Beautiful, I Am Loved, I Am Present, I Am Ready, I Am Enough, I Am Strong, and I Am Able.
With ten brushes, you’ve got everything you need to complete a full face of makeup; plus, the packaging doubles as a convenient brush holder. But the story doesn’t stop there with these self-esteem-boosting brushes. The company is also asking users to share their own stories of self-love, as well as their experiences with the brushes, on social media (Facebook/Twitter/Instagram) using the hashtag #IAMFIRST. Because there is always so much pressure and judgement when it comes to the world of beauty, having a brush set that encourages you to love yourself just as you are is refreshing.

As Hello Giggles points out, this isn’t Bdellium Tools first time in the makeup brush business. In addition to the I AM FIRST set, the brand also has a line of vegan brushes, professional brushes (their Studio Line, which is what comprises the I Am First collection), as well as brushes for special effects, travel, and a collection made from eco-friendly bamboo. So not only are you getting positivity with this set, but quality, too.
The I Am First set isn’t available until January, but you can preorder it now at bdelliumtools.com for $75. If you’re one for making resolutions in the new year, what better way to kick them off than with a little positive reinforcement every time you look in the mirror?
