Love this set!! I use the mini kabuki and larger brush on a daily basis. The larger brush is awesome for my powder, it's so soft and the perfect size. The mini kabuki is perfect for my purse for touch-ups during the day. Both brushes apply powder very evenly and have really soft bristles. Absolute must-haves!
I searched everywhere for this set and couldn't find it! I finally took a trip to the states (I live in Canada) where i found ONE left in the unloading basket. I quickly snatched it up! Funny thing is, i bought this set mainly for the baby kabuki but i haven't used that yet haha I have used the foundation brush but not for foundation. I use it for blush and it works very nicely!! The size fits my cheeks perfectly! The eyeshadow blender brush works great for applying washes of colour. I can't wait to try the baby kabuki! I use the concealer for applying under eye powder. As with all ecotools brushes....they are extremely SOFT! :)
The best out of the set is the eye shading brush perfect for an all over wash of a champagne shadow or blending out harsh lines. I might buy this set again just to get a spare.
I use the concealer brush to place and blend out my UDPP it's better at that than all of my shadow brushes.
I've been reaching for the baby kabuki to do my mineral foundation out of the tons of other foundation brushes I own it fits perfect under the eye and around the nose. It would be fab to blend out a harsh blush.
I use the mineral Powder brush for bronzer it doesn't work for foundation.
The cosmetic bag is useless to hold the brushes which I figured would be the case. Also I have a feeling the rough texture would ruin the brushes. It's still cute so I hold my ipod in it which is working out great. =]
The mineral Powder brush isn't that great it has a flat shape so you can only sweep back and forth. You can't really buff the bronzer into the skin to make it look natural. I guess I can put it in my travel bag for my oil control powder.
WOW. That's all I have to say!
Got these at Target on a whim and glad I did! Totally worth the $10. Even though I don't use any mineral makeup, (other then Detrivore) these are awesome for any type of makeup.
Powder Brush: I was expecting this to be a round brush but it's actually somewhat flat which I love. Super soft and blends out powders like a dream! I use it with my NARS Laguna Bronzer and it's never looked better!
Kabuki Brush: yay! Finally a mini kabuki that's not a waste of money! Again, super soft! It's not densely packed, but just enough for my finishing powders.
Concealer Brush: Now I have no idea how well it works with concealer because I do not use concealer. I use this to apply eye primer. Since I don't want to tug on my lids, it works well for spreading TFSI and with my MAC Paint Pots.
Eye Shading Brush: One of the best crease/blending brush I've ever used! And that's all I have to say! haha. Blends great and adds the right amount of color.
To me, the bag is comes with is a bit small for these brushes. I guess I just don't like the bristles to be squished. But that's just me, they do fit though.
LONG STORY SHORT...these might be my new favorite brushes! Might even buy another pack I love them that much!
I didn't use these brushes yet but i just had to review them because i was just touching them earlier and OMG they are so soft!!!!!!!!! i knew it was going to be soft but i didn't expect it to be THIS SOFT! i am so shocked! they feel even softer than my sonia kashuk brushes. I can't wait to use these on my face :D
I really liked this brush kit, that I got in Walmart! I was so surprised at how soft these were and at how well they picked up the powder and how wonderfully they felt against my skin. Also the fact that they were almost completely environmentally friendly and 100% cruelty free was awesome. The only reason this product doesn't get 4 out of 5 is that the kabuki brush is a bit floppy (easily fixed by holding the base of the bristles) and the powder brush was a little flat (I'm using it as a highlighter brush anyways) the crease brush is great and the concealer brush will probably be used for eyeshadow as its a bit big. Overall lovely kit with a nice look and green feel good factor.
*Edit* Still like all the brushes but I find the Crease Brush is much to floppy and has too little density to be useful. Tend to use the 'concealer' brush almost daily as an eyeshadow brush and love it. Kabuki is wonderful for an all over powder. Blush brush seems to be pretty flat but works well if I poof it and then use it for blush. Overall the rating drops a little but still excellent value for your money.
To be honest I'm not sure how well these work for mineral makeup, because I don't really use MMU and even when I do I don't use it with these brushes. I think they're a little too soft to pick up & hold loose powder and distribute it evenly. The name of the set is misleading ("5 piece brush set") because you don't get 5 brushes...you get 4 brushes and a dinky cloth pouch that's too small for anything I might use it for. I do like the plastic ziploc type pouch the set comes in though, I use it for some lipsticks and lipglosses that I don't really use but don't want to get rid of.
All of the brushes are super soft and luxurious feeling, but the stars of this set are definitely the kabuki and powder brush. I keep the kabuki in my makeup bag for on-the-go touchups with powder, its so small and compact and applies powder perfectly. I love the powder brush for blush or contour (its a little to small for all over applications of powder IMO). The eyeshadow brush is very soft and not too dense, which is perfect for blending out eyeshadow (I wouldn't use it to deposit color), howveer I don't find myself reaching for it very often because of the short handle, it tends to get lost among my other brushes. The concealer brush is pretty much useless to me, I don't use concealer brushes to begin with but this one seems to large and thick and just sort of sucks up the concealer instead of depositing it on my skin.
I haven't experienced any shedding or bleeding dyes or strange smells with these so I'd say the quality is definitely high.
I don't know if this is a must-have but I definitely use the brushes alot and they were well worth $10. continued >>
These brushes are super soft! I love the little kabuki brush.
Makes my powder look flawless.
and I love that the company is earth and animal friendly :]
These are fantastic brushes for anyone who wither starting with makeup of have experience.Each of them are very soft and for the price, it's definitely worth the money. The brushes doesn't shed nor do they become ..(bad???) after/during washing like some other brushes can.
