EcoTools Brushes Review

This set of EcoTools brushes is from The Everyday Collection that comes with five brushes and a case. EcoTools are not only great quality brushes at an affordable price, but also they are made of natural and recycled materials that are Earth-friendly and 100% cruelty-free. So by purchasing these brushes you’re not only getting more for what you pay for because of the multifunctional use of them, you’re also doing your part by helping the planet!

These brushes are made of really soft synthetic taklon bristles, bamboo handles, and recycled aluminum ferrules. The case itself is made of natural cotton and hemp that makes on-the-go organization for your brushes really simple and easy to use.

I bought this particular brush set because I thought every brush in it would give me more uses than what they are intended for. I'm all about versatility and I hardly ever use my brushes JUST for what their intended purpose is, which is why I thought this set would be perfect for me. For example, blending brushes aren't just great for blending out eyeshadow. I love using them as actual concealer brushes because it blends in nicely without looking cakey!

This set is particularly great for traveling or for on-the-go purposes because of the lightweight brushes and compact size (just about the length of my hand) but I do reach for them quite often when I'm doing my daily makeup routine. This brush set is retailed for about $10 and can be purchased at drugstores such as Walmart, Walgreens, and Riteaid.

This kit includes:
□ Concealer Brush - Great for applying concealer or packing on eyeshadow and pigments to the eyelid.

□ Eye Shading Brush - Great for applying a single color eyeshadow quickly across your eyelids. Blends out harsh lines easily and works great for applying color to your crease or highlight.

□ Detailer Brush - Can be used as a lip, eyeliner, or for a precision concealer brush. Can also be used for applying color to the inner corner of your eyes or for smudging eyeliner.

□ Angled Eyeliner Brush - Can be used for applying gel or cream liners, filling in eyebrows, or for applying precise concealer.

□ Angled Blush Brush - Great for applying brush and bronzer and can easily blend out any harsh lines.
□ On-the-Go Brush Case - Brushes fit perfectly into the case and makes it great for traveling while keeping your brushes all intact and clean.
