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.

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.

Makeup Brushes -Ecotools -Ecotools Define & Highlight Duo Brush Set

on 9/29/2017 9:34:00 PM

This is an amazing brush set from Ecotools that I enjoy immensely. You get a fan highlight brush and a tapered define brush for blush and bronzer or even powder. The bristles are extremely soft and grabs onto products so well and distribute them on your face so evenly. I have to say out of the two I definitely prefer the highlight bush - I have tried many budget friendly highlight fan brushes and nothing holds a candle to this brush, and for the price you just can't beat it.

The define brush I don't use as often, simply because I enjoy my Real Techniques brushes more but whenever I do I was reminded of how much I really like them.

Strongly recommend - everyone should own a set.

Received an email this morning with the awful news that this brush has been discontinued 😭

I was beginning to wonder why none of my local drugstores had it anymore so decided to ask them. I'm so, so disappointed by this as it's the perfect dupe of Tarte's Airbrush and now I'll have to keep spending $40 on a brush...vom!

I used this as a foundation brush, it buffed so well and left a really nice smooth, airbrushed effect. It also lasted for over a year before starting to shed.

Anyways, not sure why I'm even reviewing when it can't really be bought anymore.

I hope ecotools see this and bring it back. PLEASE 😭

This is a great set for about $9 @Walmart...Ecotools makes fabulous brushes, I have about 10, and love them all...I used to spend big bucks on brushes, but the last few years have been super happy with my Ecotools and Real Techniques brushes...I do spend the money on Beauty Blenders still, but haven't spent over $14 for a brush in awhile.. This set is great for traveling/makeup bag, they are high quality, and a definite must have!

This is an amazing brush...I've had it for years, and just saw one at Ross for $4(think I paid $11-12 years ago), I grabbed it up to have as a back up..I use it mostly for powder foundations, its dense and blends powder or liquid products amazingly.. Not sure if they still make this brush, as I haven't seen it in any Walmarts, Walgreens etc...check out Ross or Marshalls, I have seen tons there.

This is an amazing beauty sponge for a very affordable price. I really wish I only bought the big dark green sponge because I know I would never reach for the mini. One point off for that.

This is definitely not a dupe for the original BeautyBlendef but I think in some ways I actually more than the BB. It is more firm, which I preferred. I also love the precision top edge for concealer/under eye backing as well. It does tear easily too but I feel like all beauty sponges do the same thing so can't really complain.

I highly recommend. For a fraction of the price to the original BB this is worth trying out. I find that I am also reaching for this much more often than my RT sponge as well. Would repurchase - try it you won't regret it!

Makeup Brushes -Ecotools -Complexion Collection Eye Perfecting Brush

on 8/28/2017 12:17:00 PM

I've never found an eye brush (in terms of concealer) that I was wild about, but I really like this one a lot. The tip is about finger-sized (maybe a bit larger) and it's kind of firm and domed, yet soft. I have found that it is a nice tool to use to blend foundation and concealer. Tapped under my eyes, it blends undereye concealer, but I also pat and dab it on other parts of my face where I want concealer coverage. It works very well for me, to make it look natural and blended, since I can press and blend the makeup in a more targeted fashion so it looks more seamless instead of like it's simply sitting atop my skin.

This is a review for the larger sponge only. After dropping twenty dollars only to receive a dud beautyblender (wouldn't stay wet, super dense, ripped after first wash), I decided to give this blending sponge and the Real Techniques one a try. I ended up loving this sponge more than the Beauty Blender and the Real Techniques sponge. It blends everything beautifully and leaves behind a natural/radiant finish just like Beauty Blender but doesn't absorb so much foundation like the Real Techniques one. I would repurchase and would recommend this sponge!
