Ecotools 5 Piece Brush Set Review

April 16, 2012

I've reviewed the 6 piece brush set, which is for eyes make up. Now I will review the 5 piece brush set that's made for face make up application! As I am quite satisfied with their last set, now let's see if Ecotools can still impress me, or instead make me losing faith toward them! ;)

Achieve any look on-the-go! Compact and travel-ready, these brushes are engineered to smoothly apply face and eye makeup. Our editor-favorite mineral brush set is perfect for on-the-go!  This set of four brushes is designed to smoothly apply face and eye makeup. Stow your brushes in the hemp and cotton cosmetic case with a natural cork zipper pull. Brushes feature bamboo handles, recycled aluminum ferrules and soft, cruelty-free bristles.

Things to Highlight :

Handles made from Bamboo, gorgeous recycled aluminum and incredibly soft bristles. It's 100% Cruelty Free. The pouch is re-usable and it's from natural cotton. Conclusion is, it's really Earth Friendly!

Packaging :

The packaging is same like it's 6 piece brush set. It's made from bamboo wood and all natural eco-friendly stuffs, so it's a plus point although it doesn't look classy or expensive. The pouch also looks cheap, but it's travel friendly and can store the brush perfectly! Ecotools brand is printed on its handle

Application :

Compared to the 6 piece eye brush set, I find that this set is much more gentle, and easy to work with. It's really soft and gentle on skin. I love this one more than 6 eye brush set! Although still, the handle is a bit too short to use it on someone else, it's only good for personal use



 Brushes in This Set =

Baby Kabuki =

I usually use this kabuki to put loose powder or powder foundation. Just swirl it all over my face, and it gives nice finish

Concealer Brush =

I use this to apply concealer on my dark circles mostly because the shape is perfect. Sometimes I also cover my redness around nose and mouth with this. I tend to use other smaller concealer brush to cover up my acne

Eye Shading Brush =

Although it can make shading on eyes, I prefer use this product as shading my nose! I usually pick up brown eyeshadow with this brush and contour my nose with it!

Mineral Powder Brush =

I use this to apply powder on my face. But sometimes when I am in hurry, I use this to apply blush or bronzer as well, because it's small so I can quite work on it

Where I Got This and Price =

I got this from Zatura Shop for only Rp 125.000. You can purchase it HERE if you live in Indonesia. If you count, the price or each brush is slightly more expensive than it's eye brush, because you only get 4 brush and 1 pouch. But the quality is better, and the bristles are much softer, so I think it's a fair price




Final Opinion =

Although I can't say that I am impressed by the quality, but I think it's not bad either. It's pretty decent, and I would recommend every make up beginners to start their brush collection with this product. Although if you're pro, this is not for you because I think it's difficult to use these brushes to put make up on someone because the handle is really short. It's more for personal use and travelling

Pros :

  • Affordable

  • Eco-Friendly

  • Picks up products nicely

  • Travel Friendly

  • Gentle on skin

Cons :

  • Not suitable for professional use [Handle is too short]

Again, I am satisfied with Ecotools. I know now why so many people like using it, especially beginners. If you don't want to spend any money, or can't afford high end brush, just go with Ecotools because it's not a bad choice. I'd rather go with this instead of Tammia or other make up brushes, because it has better quality than them in my opinion ^^
