Not too long before my surgery I had the opportunity to try out the Bdellium Purple Bambu Sultry Eyes 5pc. Brush Set. Bdellium (pronounced del-ee-uhm, the B is silent), creates cruelty free and vegan brushes. Bdellium brushes are designed by makeup brush experts in Cerritos, California and handmade by skilled artisans. The different lines have different features, with the green bambu, yellow bambu, pink bambu and purple bambu lines all featuring eco-friendly, sustainable bamboo handles and vegan synthetic bristles with an anodized aluminum ferrule.

About the Purple Bambu Sultry Eyes 5pc. Brush Set
The Purple Bambu Sultry Eyes 5 piece Brush Set includes a collection of brushes that are the perfect blending and lining tools you need to create beautiful sultry eyes.
- Cruelty free
- #783PU Small Tapered Blending
- #777PU Shadow
- #762PU Small Angle
- #716PU Smoky Eyeliner
- #708PU Bent Eyeliner
The brush set is $30 and breaks down to $6 a brush, which is very reasonable, especially considering the quality of the brushes.
Purple #708PU Bent Eyeliner
This is perfect for the upper lash line. It’s easy to glide along the upper lash line and wing out your liner with this brush. It’s got enough give to it without being flimsy, and it’s not too stiff.
Purple #777PU Shadow
This is a multi-purpose eyeshadow brush that Bdellium says is meant for the lid, crease, and highlight. I used it on the lid and to highlight under the brow. It’s larger than I prefer for my lid but it’s nice for doing a wash of color for a base shade. This is actually perfect for applying a base shade, and then following it up with the lighter shade of a smoky eye.
Purple #783PU Small Tapered Blending
This brush is great for building color in the crease and blending. I really like the shape, density and give for blending. You would use this brush to blend out colors in the crease.
Purple #762PU Small Angle
I have a lack of small angled brushes like this. I love this one because it works well with creams as well as powders. It’s great with the NARS Eye Paints or with eyeshadows like Makeup Geek Corrupt. It’s small and has the perfect amount of give to apply color at your lash line.
Purple #716PU Smoky Eyeliner
I LOVE this brush! You may have seen me use NARS Eye Paint in Black Valley to line my upper lash line into a rough cat eye shape. Then I like to go back with a black eyeshadow like Makeup Geek Corrupt and a brush like this on top of the gel eyeliner to smoke it out. Super quick and easy smoky cat eye. You can also use this brush to apply the deeper color of a smoky eye.
I really love that these brushes are purple! The bristles are soft and they’re easy to clean. The only thing I dislike is that they are white and purple instead of black and purple. I find that white stains easily as my Cinema Secrets brush cleanser tends to leave a blue tint on white brushes.
I’ve actually purchased bdellium green bambu series brushes in the past from Amazon including the 767 Round Dome Blender, 714 Flat Eye Definer, 776 Blending Brush and 785 Tapered Blending. Those brushes have held up well over the past 3 years, so I feel confident saying that the purple bambu series should hold up nicely. I experienced no shedding when cleaning the purple bambu brushes.
If you’re looking for my brush holder, you can find it here.
Overall, if you’re looking for a set of eye brushes to help you perfect your smoky eye, this set is a good one to check out.
