Bought Bronzer cause it felt so soft. Love it! After I washed it with Sephora's brush cleaner (once a week type) it kept its hairs and stayed soft. I also bought concealer brush but its too big so I use it as eyeshadow brush. Wish they made a stippler brush...
I love and use most of these brushes every day. The only brush I don't use is the kabuki, which is too small.
They're all really, really soft, and SO CHEAP!
I absolutely love the packaging, and I use the cute little canvas bag that came with the brushes to hold them inside my makeup bag.
They don't leave any weird smells or bleed dye when I clean them, which is a huge plus!
I haven't had any shed yet, and I've had these brushes for many months now!
I would definitely repurchase if I lose or break any of them.
I like this, but I have found that the Ecotools sold individually are generally better than the sets. The kabuki brush is not dense enough to actually use as a kabuki, but it's good for blending out blush or whatever if you have applied too much. I like the powder brush for bronzer and contouring, since it doesn't apply the product too heavy. The concealer brush is okay, but the one sold individually is better. The eye shading brush is supposed to be for blending eye shadow, however I find it to be too large and soft for that. I have been using it to apply translucent setting powder over my undereye concealer.
Overall, I would probably not buy this again and will probably stick to buying individual Ecotools brushes instead of sets. I would make an exception, however, if I ever saw the Alicia Silverstone set. I really want the duo-fibre brush that comes with it, it's hard to find one of those type of brushes that is not made of animal hair.
love these brushes!!! they are super soft... go get em'!!! :)
I love this brush set!!!! The bristles don't stay on your face like most brushes, and they're super soft, even after you clean them!!!! These are better than a set that cost me over $100!!!! Will be buying more brushes from this company!!! Completely satisfied!!!!
I was actually really disappointed with this brush set. I used these brushes with my MAC mskn & mineralized blush duo and these brushes didn't even pick up very much product at all. It also applied very unevenly. I'll be returning this brush set sometime this week.
I love these brushes! They are cruelty free, very soft and just overall good brushes! They're well made and they don't feel cheap at all. If you're looking into makeup brushes I would recommend ecotools! These were my first makeup brushes. =)
The only down side to this is that I don't feel like the biggest brush (I think it's the powder brush) fits in the little case that comes with this. I ended up getting rid of the little case because the brushes don't really fit in there very well. But I didn't want to keep them in the case anyway, I want to display them because they're so cute! =p
This my favorite brush set from Ecotools. If you do not have any Ecotools brushes, this set is a great place to start. It comes with blush brush, kabuki, an eyeshadow blending brush that is a sort of dupe for the MAC 224 but thinner, and a flat brush that is good for applying concealer since the tip comes to a point.
I would not recommend storing the brushes in the pouch that it comes with. The short length of the brushes make them great for throwing into a makeup bag for on-the-go.
The bristles are very soft.
This set is a must-have for any makeup collector and especially for beginners.
I just bought this brush set and I am in lovee. It's absolutely perfect for my everyday makeup routine. I can pretty much do my whole face just using this little kit. The mini kabuki is perfect for putting on mineral foundation, it applies the perfect coverage. The blush brush is awesome for applying bronzer or even blush. The two shadow brushes are awesome! I personally like the crease brush! Did i mention how soft these brushes are? omg they feel awesome on your face! I reccomend this cute little kit to anyone who loves makeup just as much as I do. :)
I must say I am satisfied about my purchase, but would have purchased the brushed in their full-size instead. Individual reviews:
Powder brush - Overall a good brush. Gives a sheer to medium coverage of mineral makeup, and applied bronzer/blush. It's not CRAZY soft as I thought it would be after reading reviews on MUA, but it is definitely softer than most brushes. I use it to dot mineral powder on the areas of my face (then use MAC #130 to stipple and buff, or the Ecotools kabuki brush), or to apply bronzer. However, next time I would purchase the original powder brush with the longer handle. 4.5/5
Kabuki brush - The bristles on this are SUPER soft, moreso than the powder brush. I mainly use this to blend bronzer/blush or my mineral makeup. I love using this on my face! Sadly there's practically no handle on nit (even though kabukis usually have small handles) so I will try the retractable kabuki brush next time. 5/5
Concealer brush - I have to say it's pretty soft, so it does blend concealer fairly well. However I find that it picks up a lot of the concealer, so I use it very lightly after I tap concealer onto my acne scars. I really don't like this to use under eyes because I feel like it pulls the skin. I would give this brush a 3.5/5.
Eyeshadow brush - Soft, yes, but there is almost no control with this brush. It's also a bit too big and oddly shaped for eyeshadow on the eyes, unless you are only using 1 colour, maybe 2, for a daytime look. I much prefer this for applying under-eye concealer since it is so soft. Another thing to note, is that when I clean this brush, the bristles stick out in an odd way (none of the other brushes do this) which makes it seem cheap. For it's purposes as an eyeshadow brush, I give it a 2.5/5 mainly because of the lack of control.
Carrying case - Too small to hold the powder brush and all of the brushed combined. I've kept it, though, in case I find a use for it when traveling.
Overall, I think that these brushes are surprisingly well-made for its price and would recommend it for younger people who are new to makeup. It is great for everyday wear. But I feel like after you use this product for a while, you want to move on to bigger and better things. I also would not recommend getting the starter kit if you like your eye makeup, or like a different type of concealer brush, as those are the weaker brushes in this pack. Instead, just buy the brushes separately so you get exactly what you like.
