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.

Prices for Ecotools are very inflated in Australia, but purchasing them on iHerbs really helps.
I have had 2 of these. They are excellent for travelling or to have in your makeup bag.
The brush is well made & lasts well over a year easily.
The bristles are dense and super soft. Love it!

Pretty good. I use it to touch-up pressed face powder and bronzer. It works well for both purposes.

I have noticed slight shedding, but nothing to be overly concerned about. I have had no issues with the outside being scratched.

This brush is kinda weird but I absolutely adore it for carving out the brows or highlighting under them. Basically all I use it for lol

I really like this brush for powder. Great amount of density and is very soft. Find this a bit overwhelming for blush but absolutely love this for setting the face precisely.

Hair Styling Tools -Ecotools -Smooth Detangler Paddle Brush

My hair is very thick and dense, and magically tangles itself up, regardless of what I'm doing. While I try to be gentle when brushing, my hairbrushes tend to pop a bristle after a couple of months, max. I've had the EcoTools Smooth Detangler for five months, and it's as good as new. I don't have to tug hard to get the knots out, which is much kinder to my hair. While it looks cheap, it outperforms any other hairbrush I've ever used by miles. I'd certainly repurchase if anything happened to it...but, at this point, I'd be surprised if anything did!

Makeup Brushes -Ecotools -Recycled Retractable Foundation Brush

I don't recommend this for foundation. It leaves a lot of brush strokes on my face and it takes forever to apply foundation with it because t's not big enough. I don't get an even coverage with this. Also it seems that this sucks up some of the product.... I think it's better for concealer or used on the nose, than on the rest of the face.

I love this brush. It is dense plush and soft.....such a great brush for 10 dollars. I use this everyday for applying my powder foundation. It applies my powder evenly and helps buff out harsh lines. Ohh and it doesn't shed. The only con is that the brush fob was getting loose and I had to reglue it. But its fine now.

I really love this brush. Even though I seldom use this for concealer application, but I mostly use it to contour my nose, and it works amazing. I washes my brushes pretty often too and none bristles fall off. This is totally worth the price.

These little sponges are terrific! I purchased them off the ecotools website (along with the larger face sponge duo). They work great as a very inexpensive beautyblender brand dupe. It’s more what I had been hoping for and expecting when the micro beautyblenders initially launched. These are larger than those, but smaller than the beautyblender blusher (which is the only “official” BB I continue to repurchase). The only two cons I would say would be they are not as durable as some other sponges I’ve tried, though the price and 4 ct. in the package mostly justifies it. Also, I find all the ecotools (and L’Oreal, actually) sponges all retain much more water when used wet, which I find sheers out my makeup a little too much and sometimes can make any powder applied turn cakey/pasty even. In order to avoid that, I really make sure to wring/squeeze out as much water as possible. Then, this gives a beautiful finish!

Misc Beauty Tools -Ecotools -Konjac Sponge

I found this at Walmart and it was on clearance, so I decided to try it out. The sponge goes from super firm to really soft when saturated with water. I liked how it felt on my face, and it made my pores look nice. The only negative with this product is how long it lasts. Even if you wash it after every use, it still gets pretty nasty after a while. It said that you could use it for 3 months, but mine lasted about a month. I really like it, but I just wish it lasted longer.

Misc Beauty Tools -Ecotools -Perfecting Blender Duo

I bought just the large green sponge instead of the duo, but it's the same green sponge in the duo, just single. It was around $5. This is a much denser, firmer sponge than the RT which I've used and have, and I'm on the fence about this one. It expands a ton when damp, and does blend your foundation beautifully, but there are times where I feel it absorbs more than the RT. It also ripped the second time I washed it - and I'm pretty gentle (my RT never ripped when I washed them DAILY).

I think the main reason this ripped is because of how large and dense it is. I'd debate about repurchasing, but I think I'll try the AOA Wonder Blender first - which is only $1.00 or their new softer version for $1.50. For the price of even the EcoTools sponge, I could get 5 sponges to try out.

This review is for the larger sponge only. It's sold separately with a metal stand that you can keep your sponge on, which is a great idea. I'll probably never actually use the stand, because my cats will get a blending sponge in their clutches and play with/destroy it given the opportunity, so I have to store mine in a drawer. But still, it's a nice touch.

This is my favorite blending sponge ever. I've never tried the original Beauty Blender sponge, but I've used Real Techniques and several other drugstore options. The RT one was my holy grail for years but the quality started deteriorating more and more with every sponge I repurchased, and I knew it was time to find a replacement.

This sponge is soft, yet firm enough to perfectly bouncy. It expands excellently when dampened. Doesn't soak up a ton of product. It's easy to clean and hasn't torn in the month I've had it (which... a month isn't much to ask out of a blending sponge, right? But that was about how often I was having to replace mine over the past year or so when I was using other brands.) I appreciate the shape of this thing (2 flat sides which meet up at a flat pointed end, and then your typical rounded bottom part.) I'm also fond of the green color which is much nicer than light orange IMO. For only being around $6 at Walgreens, it's amazing.

Would repurchase for sure.

Picked this up the other day at TJ Maxx for $4, figured it was going to be amazing, so I grabbed 2! It really is a great brush for applying powder bronzer, as the duo fibre bristles don't pick up too much powder, and allow you to build up if you choose to. I have many Eco tools brushes, and have never been disappointed in any, definitely recommend.

This review is for the large sponge only (they sell the large ones only along with a handy drying stand for less than the cost of the duo pack).

Comparisons: While this is not a dupe of BeautyBlender, this is fairly close. It is not as soft as the BeautyBlender (it’s still pretty soft), it doesn’t expand as much as the BeautyBlender when dampened, but I do like the flat sides of the Ecotools sponge instead of pointy end that the BeautyBlender has. Honestly, BeautyBlender is my favorite and the Ecotools sponge is just not a dead on dupe if a BeautyBlender. However, if you don’t want to splurge on a BeautyBlender, this one is the best that I have tried from the drugstore (I have tried the L’Oréal Infalliable sponge [too expensive for its performance], Real Techniques Complexion sponge [absorbs too much product and a bit filmsy], and cheap o Aliexpress sponges [smell weird, absorb too much product, and too dense]).

Finish: I dampen the sponge by spraying a few spritzes of Mac Prep + Prime Fix+ on the bottom of the sponge, dot some foundation on my face and “pat” away with the sponge. The Ecotools sponge does not absorb a bunch of product, and the finish between Ecotoolsand the BeautyBlender is very similar. Unless you look really close you will not tell.

It feels nice on your face and leaves a beautiful finish once you get the hang of sponge dampness based on the type of foundation you use. Definitely pick this up if you don’t want to spend a bunch of money on a sponge.
