Misc Beauty Tools -Ecotools -Total Perfecting Blender

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.

This is a bright green sponge I purchased at Walmart. One end is rounded and the other is narrow and squared off. I would prefer one end to have a small point. As soon as I used it, I threw away my other sponges because this one is so superior. It is very soft but does not absorb as much product as do most damp sponges. My liquid foundations look so much better and more even. Ecotools has a loyal customer in me for this sponge.

Excellent brush! I use it with my mineral powder and the brush picks up the powder and distributes it evenly. It is so soft on my face. I absolutely love it. Purchase it and you will not be sorry.

I got these after seeing so many good reviews and being tired of purchasing Beauty Blenders. This duo is a GAME changer. The face sponge gets HUGE when wet and applies my foundations and tinted moisturizers like a dream without soaking up all of my product and it keeps my dry skin moisturized at the same time! The smaller sponge I use dry to blend out my concealer after applying it and letting it dry down a bit for more coverage (thank you auntie Jackie Aina!!! 💕) The small sponge does a phenom job of blending out my concealer! I love the different sides of the sponges and find I use them a lot more than the butt of the a Beauty Blender. I hate the Real Techniques sponge (too hard) and was a die hard fan of the Beauty Blender, but I can’t go back to that knowing this exists and is half the price for the duo and only $5 for the face sponge. TRY THIS!!!

Makeup Brushes -Ecotools -Blending & Bronzing Brush

on 3/23/2018 1:07:00 PM

This brush applies bronzer beautifully. It is a perfect size, not too big not, not too small. I always found most bronzing brushes too huge. I often used a blush brush for that reason but those can pack bronzer on too thick and too precise. This brush packs on a good amount without overdoing it and most importantly, it blends the powder seemlessly. The duofiber makes the blending soft and effective at the same time. I used to use Bobbi Brown, YSL and Laura Mercier brushes for my bronzing but this one is better! I would repurchase.

I only purchased the larger of these two sponges, and let me tell you, it swells up to ginormous proportions when dampened. The texture is different than other blending sponges I’ve tried. It’s not as soft or squishy as the Beauty Blender, it doesn’t tear like the Real Techniques sponge, it almost reminds me of a sponge you would use to wash a car with, those big brick sized sponges but without all the large holes (obviously). The best feature is the shape. I like the rounded bottom and chiseled sides - one of the flat edged sides is larger than the other so it is very versatile. It makes applying foundation quick because it is so large, but I still spend a fair amount of time blending because of the texture of the sponge and because I like my foundation to look natural on my skin. It takes some getting used to but once you do it is a really great blending sponge that easily cleans up like new which I can’t say is the case with the Beauty Blender. Great price for a great product. I will repurchase when I need a new one.

Misc Beauty Tools -Ecotools -Color Perfecting Minis

These mini blenders work great applying under eye concealer. I like the shape of them and find them easy to handle. Also they clean better than other beauty sponges I have tried. I will keep repurchasing as I do replace my mini blender once a month since I use it on my under eye area. But 4 mini blenders lasts me 4 months as I have yet to have one tear. Great price point too.

I'm late to the Beauty Blender trend. I normally apply foundation with my hands. I didn't want to pay $20 to test it out, so I purchased this. I love it ! The little sponge doesn't work well, but the big sponge is amazing. It applies liquid foundation so nicely , makes my base look very smooth. Foundations that didn't look so great applied with my hands, look really good with the sponge. I was worried I wouldn't get full coverage , but I still do. I have issue where the foundation on my nose will look cakey and uneven when applied with my hands, but this sponge takes care of that. I will repurchase , and will use this everyday.

This brush is soo soft. It feels like a dream. I got it on a sale so it was pretty cheap too, tho it isnt too expensive normally either.
I use it mainly to apply highlighter and other powders, I havent tried it with foundation yet.

This review is for the big sponge - I haven't used the little one yet.
I bought this right after my dog ate my BeautyBlender (she shows no remorse AT ALL!) so I think I can make a fair comparison because I have fresh memories of both of the sponges. I must say, in terms of results, I honestly don't see a big, if any, difference. At first I thought it would be harder to blend my foundation with the Ecotools one because it definitely feels stiffer and not as bouncy as the BB and it doesn't expand as much when wet but it actually does blend it just as easily and quickly. I hear people say it absorbes more product than the BB. I haven't noticed such thing but even if it is true, it is not a problem for me since I can never use up my foundation before its expiration date, anyway.
I definitely don't think it's "50% better" than the BB as the package promises but I do think it's just as good. I'm happy I tried it and I'm definitely not going back to giving twice as much money for the same results.

I wish there was a review just for the larger sponge because these two sponges are definitely not equal. I adore the larger sponge and it's actually knocked the Beauty Blender off as my favorite makeup sponge. (the only sponge I've tried to even come close) It's beautiful dense and seems to work better on my dry skin as it seems to retain slightly more moisture (without being wet) than the BB. It's so soft and wonderful.. Works great for liquid, powder, cream... Then there's the little one... I don't much care for it. It isn't made with the same materials as the bigger version. I think the little one is meant for powder which is why it's more stiff? I have no clue but I never use it. If I could buy a double pack of the big one, I would be all over it or even just the large one alone... but unfortunately it's nearly impossible (at least where I live) to find just the big one by itself... So I'm stuck with the little one riding its coat tails... That being said... this duo is usually around $8 so I can deal with it.
MY ONLY gripe about this product overall is that you have to be really careful when washing them. They will tear... and much easier than the BB tears. I've had my original BB for over a year (mind you, it's not everyday use)... I only stopped using it because I imagine after a certain point, even if it's still intact that it's not good to continue using. Whereas the EcoTools one I accidentally made a little tear within the first few washes.. so just be careful especially when squeezing it out

Makeup Brushes -Ecotools -Eye Enhancing Duo Brush Set

After looking for small eye brushes to finish my brush set, I stumbled across these ones at Ulta. I really like how it’s double sided because it takes up less space in my already cluttered makeup bag. For the price I would say these brushes are okay. I have no problems with blending. I just find that the actual hairs themselves can sometimes feel sharp on my lid. Good for a pinch but not great. I prefer to use the wet n wild ones and they’re only 99 cents.
