Perfect gift for people who are new to using brushes. Definitely not cheap quality. Very useful.

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.

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. :)
