The bristles are soft and have some give, but not so much that you don't have any control during application. It feels a bit clunky to use at times, with its small brush head relative to the thick handle, but maybe that's just me being me. It's aimed as a mineral foundation brush but I prefer using it for my runny liquid foundations (I just don't enjoy using flat top brushes to buff in powder foundations). Applies my foundation nicely and hasn't fallen apart on me. :)

My Bare Minerals kabuki brush was beginning to shed and leave those annoying bristles all over my face and my clothes, so I decided to try out some new brushes. My local GoodWill (Yes, you read that right, G.O.O.D.W.I.L.L) had a large bin full of new brushes, still in the pack, for .99 - 1.99. I saw these (two per pack) and thought I'd give them a try. THEY'RE FANTASTIC.

The brush is very very soft (reminds me of a Tom Ford brush) and the flat top makes buffing in mineral makeup a total dream. While the bristles are stiff, they are very soft and don't cause redness, but they are stiff enough to where there isn't a lot of "give" while using them. The shape of the handle is very smooth and conformed for the palm. I'm extremely happy with my purchase.

Because of these brushes, I will begin adding other Ecotool brushes to my collection. These are great quality brushes.

This is an absolutely fantastic brush. EcoTools is proof that you don't need to spend a ton of money to get a really solid brush. I use this to apply CC cream, foundation, and to blend in concealer, and it does a really great job every time - easily comparable to more expensive brushes that I've used.The bristles are soft against your skin, but sturdy enough to really buff if you need them to. It's the perfect size for covering your face - not too big so that you can't get into the corners around your eyes and nose and up by your hairline, but not too small so that it takes 100 years to get the product around your face. It creates a lovely, natural finish, and doesn't absorb a lot of product. It's also super easy to clean.

I've had this for about 2 months, and I don't think it's shed even a single bristle. I have EcoTools brushes that are 7-8 years old (even with frequent washing), and I have no reason to anticipate that this will be any different. Absolutely, 100% recommend.

I use this for my pressed powder and foundation. It blends beautifully! This makes it easy to focus on my problem oily areas that need extra powder (like the pores right next to my nose) without caking up the rest of my cheeks which tend to be dry. Love this!!! I have the Urban Decay Karma Brush and this Eco brush is equally good without the price tag and the weight of UD.

Off to the beauty store to purchase a new buffing foundation brush. Previously I was using a Mac flat foundation brush that I've had for years (flat like a large paintbrush). Often the Mac brush would leave my face very streaky. I figured I may as well try the new buffing type to see how they work. I was making over $150 purchase on new makeup and moisturizers therefore, was hesitant to spend another $40 on a brush. But I wanted one :). an employee at the store suggested I try this brush and said that it works just as well no need to spend a ton of money on a new brush. I argued with her slightly stating sometimes you get what you pay for (even though I was pretty much busting at the seams with the money I was spending in the store that day). I trusted her suggestion.
Very very pleased and would definitely buy it again! No stray brush hairs on my face or any issues. There was one longer brush hair when I first removed it from the package, I trimmed it with a scissor, and that was that. I cannot compare this brush to a high end one since this is the first time I am trying a " buffing type" foundation brush. I can share that my skin appears smooth after applying foundation and I can't imagine a more expensive brush doing anything much different.

I use this fabulous brush to reapply my blush at lunchtime. It is so soft and does such a fabulous job of buffing my blush so that there are no harsh lines or demarcations - I can honestly put on my blush without a mirror because I trust that this brush, with one dab into my blusher, will do the trick. I couldn't be without this unique and exceptional tool!

I absolutely love this brush! I use it every time I do my makeup whether it is foundation or BB cream and it just blends it in flawlessly. It doesn't waste the product you're using and it helps get in all the annoying spots as well as making sure there are no patches with minimal effort. Prefer over any of my brushes or beauty blenders/sponges. Will repurchase over and over and over I absolutely love this brush and would recommend it to everyone as its a good price and amazing.

So this is odd to review, because this brush actually fell apart on me the first time I used it (the handle literally fell off), but besides that, this is a really quality brush! (Weird, I know. I ended up keeping the broken brush anyways because I liked it being shorter so I could get closer to the mirror).

I bought this brush specifically for mineral makeup when I was getting back into it, I heard that the regular kabuki brushes don't actually deposit a lot of the makeup on your face, which can cause it to have very light coverage. This brush was recommended instead, and I'm so glad I bought it! using this with mineral makeup, I always have a nearly flawless finish...and I don't have flawless skin. It buffs my foundation into my skin so beautifully. The brush itself is very full, not at all skimpy, and it's ridiculously soft. This is definitely my favourite brush. I'm getting into cream foundations now, so I look forward to seeing what it can do with those, but for mineral makeup, hands down this is the best.

I use this brush almost everyday for my cream foundation and love it! It is very soft and gives a nice airbrushed look. I've had it for about a year now and I haven't noticed any shedding. It is great quality for $7. I kept the little bag that it came in which is great for traveling.
