Makeup Brushes -EcoTools -Blending & Bronzing Brush

foto

Just what I was looking for.

I recently got into the whole full face of makeup thing and started wearing bronzer. I'm quite fair skinned and nearly cried when I saw how muddy and bright it looked against my complexion when I first tried bronzer. This diffusing brush is a dream. It helps my bronzer go on naturally so I can look sun kissed without awkward patches and streaks or muddines. I just throw on my bronzer with this blush, do a bit of blending with my beauty blender and I'm good to go!

If you only ever buy one bronzer brush make sure it is this one.
Lovely soft bristles with a solid handle makes applying makeup
a dream. Highly recommended. I have already purchased
spares of this brush to use as backup.

Makeup Brushes -EcoTools -Daily Defined Eye Kit

I'm annoyed I didn't try this sooner. The shapes and softness of these Eco Tools brushes are better than my standard Real Techniques and my Elf Brushes. If you only buy drugstore brushes at the moment, you wont be disappointed. They look beautiful, pick up shadow well, the detailing shapes are great, and they are not prickly at all.

I've been quite disenchanted with Real Techniques lately. I keep buying brushes from them, and I keep getting duds. Its real hit or miss. The RT blush brush, the large powder brush, the original eye brush set with the ridiculously large domed crease brush, all those brushes are not good. Scratchy, don't blend well, they lift my foundation, a big no.

If I was going to start over with no brushes for the eye area (I have small hooded eyes) I would get the following:

1) Eco tools Daily Defined Eye Kit
2) Elf Blending Brush $3
and this next one, but only because I haven't tried better alternatives at closeby drugstores
3) Real Techniques ENHANCED EYE SET

I love these so much, especially the fan brush. I use the tapered brush mostly for bronzer, blush or to set my undereye. It’s the perfect size, fluffy enough to blend it out, without packing too much product. The fan brush is fantastic! I normally HATE fan brushes but this, I can’t get enough of it. It’s fluffy & it makes my highlighters look natural on the skin. It’s a little bit large but I find that it’s the perfect size to highlight my cheekbones. Another thing I love is that my highlighters don’t get everywhere in the face.

Amazing brought this 3 difference times. It’s the best drugstore sponge. I prefer this over the real techniques sponge . It also last much longer and doesn’t fall apart. Definitely recommend this beauty sponge

I just bought this the other day, and went right back to buy another.

This is a great sponge. It's SUPER soft, and does not absorb much product and also washes out GREAT. The only downside, I've had it barely a week and it's already got 2 cracks in the foam. I don't mind because it's so cheap and so soft. I tred this sponge a year ago and it was really stiff, so they must have updated the product because it's completely opposite of what I remember. I do also use the RT sponge, and like that one, too - but I think it's fun to switch back and forth.

I have tried the beautyblender - HORRIBLE. Waste of money and regretted the purchase the day I used it. Do not be suckered into trying one of them like I did. Ugh.

I second what the last reviewer said. This sponge is the most versatile shape with a round end for bouncing, two flat surfaces for smoothing, and 'tips' that allow application in tight facial areas. It is exceptionally soft but does not absorb (waste) as much product as most sponges I have previously used. The cost is reasonable and it has held up well for me with many different products.

I can't believe there are only 3 reviews of this blending sponge on here! It's so good. I'd tried many different beauty sponges & thought that I'd found "the one". But the quality of that one seemed to decrease each time I purchased it (which became more & more frequently, because a brand of sponge that once lasted for months started falling apart in a few weeks). This sponge has replaced that one in my routine though & I'm happy about it... this green sponge is way better than that orange one ever was.

This blending sponge has a shape that makes it easy to reach areas like the inner corners of my eyes, etc. It's not too hard or too soft & it expands nicely when dampened. I find that it doesn't soak up a crazy amount of foundation like some sponges do. Gives a flawlessly blended look. Super easy to clean - just one pump of antibacterial hand soap, rub it into the sponge, then squeeze out repeatedly... & it looks good as new. Also I like the fact that it comes with a metal stand that you can store it on if you want to. I don't use it but I've never seen any other blending sponge come with that.

The best thing about this product is the price. It's $4.99 & in my experience is very easy to find in stores. This sponge lasts forever too. I've had mine for 6 months & while there's a tiny bit of wear on one side, I'm not planning on replacing it any time soon... it still works perfectly. I will buy another one when I need to though. I'm done trying lots of blending sponges because I've found one that performs exactly how I want it to. Hopefully this product doesn't become super popular to the point where they start raising the price & lowering the quality.

These are a great value and earth friendly so I keep giving the company a shot but I find with their brushes they're a bit pokey. Probably not enough to bother most people but my skin has become hypersensitive over the past decade. So I say yes for others but no for me :(

Makeup Brushes -EcoTools -Bamboo Angled Eyeliner Brush

on 5/28/2018 8:30:00 PM

I love the brush, but I rarely ever use it for eyeliner. It does leave a nice even application of makeup, but it's too thick for my preference. I have slightly hooded eyes that are big and wide meaning I need fine defined eyeliner to add definition which this brush is to wide for. I sometimes use it for a natural looking eyeliner with a neutral colored powder to give myself a well blended eyelash shadow line. I mainly just use it for my brows and again it's works better with powder than pomade or gel. It will not give you those fine little lines at the front of your brow, but a soft blend even tail.

This is not my favorite Kabuki brush, or powder brush for that matter, but this is a great brush when you want to have one in your purse for touch-ups throughout the day! Soft bristles and does not shed.

Makeup Brushes -EcoTools -Bronze Buki Brush

I LOVE this brush. It's big and fluffy and soft and shaped like a big contour brush (I uploaded a pic). The bristles aren't densely packed, which is perfect for not overapplying bronzer. The shape makes it easy to apply in the right area and lets you sculpt a bit while you bronze. It somehow diffuses pigment and blends everything perfectly. An ideal bronzer brush has been kind of an elusive unicorn item for me, so I'm really glad I found this.

It's inexpensive and has retained its softness through 2 washes so far. Some of my past Ecotools brushes that I liked really went south after washing, so that's a plus and I hope it stays that way. Also, it's fun to use.

UPDATE 5/23/2018: I tried Real Techniques diamond sponge and was so disappointed. i went to Walmart and bought this sponge again. The second one is much better texture wise and will last longer.

ORIGINAL: I purchased this after watching a YouTube person compared it to the real techniques sponge. They preferred this over Real Techniques.

I like the multiple sides and angles on this sponge which does take some practice to figure out, but on first use my makeup looked airbrushed. I was so thrilled. It is very soft and I feel like I use less foundation.

I won't purchase this again because the quality it not as good as Real Techniques. After 1 wash, it lost some of the sponge material. I usually repurchase Real Techniques sponge every 3 months, this will not make it.

I bought this because of some good reviews on YouTube and the price. It doesn’t last as long as other sponges. I feel like it soaks up more product than other drugstore sponges. It’s just not that great and I won’t repurchase. I prefer the Real Techniques sponge better

I bought this at target because it was cheap, under $4. It looks nice in the packaging, it's an eye catching bright green and I wont lie..that's a big reason I got it.

I don't really buy into the hype of the original beautyblenders. I've had them but honestly don't think they made that big of a difference compared to my real techniques sponges. The ecotools sponge is very soft and expands quite a lot when wet, but my nails end up tearing it every single time no matter how careful I am. I've used it three times and it looks much older than it actually is.

Also, it doesn't blend as well as my other sponges. I have to put a lot more work into getting a flawless finish than I usually do. It also absorbs a ton of product, even when damp. It just isn't for me considering it's only about a dollar cheaper than real techniques. Be sure to wash it with soap before use if you weren't going to do that already. The dye bleeds on the first wash, so if you were to just wet it and use it you might end up with a green tinted face.
