I think I'm the only person who doesn't LOVE this brush...
It's soft and all but whenever I use it with bronzer, blush, powder, etc, it seems to just wipe off whatever makeup I have underneath (currently Laura Mercier TM). For me, I can only use it to buff out the makeup around my hairline. Wish it lived up to all the good reviews on here... maybe I got a bad brush?
EDIT: I tried using this with my Bare Minerals Matte, and now i love how dense it is. It gives me an airbrushed look.
I use this brush more as a all-over face powder brush since I don't use a bronzer. But it certainly does the job well! It buffs fantasticly and it's super soft! It also looks very nice.
I love this brush so much, I have three! I use one for my favorite loose powder, one for my current favorite cream foundation, one for powder highlighter...I can't say enough good things about it. I have since trashed some high end brushes that were comparable, but shed all the time. The Ecotools doesn't shed, and provides a great finish. I will always have a few of these in my kit. I actually like the chunky handle, because I am always juggling 20 things and I feel like I can really control the brush with that big handle to grip on to. LOVELOVELOVE it!
This brush is definitely HG status! I picked up this brush at either Ulta or on Amazon (I forget). I heard it was great for applying bronzer and contouring, and it really is. It is also a great brush for blending just about anything out. I use it after I apply my blush, to blend it out a little (and then I reapply my blush to layer it - it stays on better that way). I also use it for finishing powder all over my face. It is so densely packed and incredibly soft that it works very well all over your face.
This is my first brush from Ecotools. This works well with my Smashbox bronzer, picks up the right amount and blends it nicely (circular motions). I have tried it with pressed powders and it worked too especially in the eye and other angular areas. Bristles are really soft and I love that they're made of taklon - same as Urban Decay which also makes amazing brushes- but these are half the cost.
This brush is amazing!
It's so soft and picks up enough product to provide enough pigment from a bronzer, blush or finishing powder. Even if you make a mistake, the outline of where the brush is is hardly noticeable, so you can just blend away. I normally use this with blush and this brush is just perfect at making the application so easy!
Pricewise, this was around AUD$15, which is very reasonable as Manicare and other drugstore brand brushes are around that price anyway.
The packaging was not too bad, but it might be hard to get the brush out the first time without feeling like you've gone and damaged it.
This is the first brush from Ecotools that I've bought and after using it for a week, I'm ready to buy more!
I have become a huge fan of Ecotools. The brushes are soft, don't shed. I use this one for dusting on body powder after my shower. It's velvety soft and good for delicate skin, and holds a lot of powder. I will absolutely repurchase once this one kicks the bucket.
I have two... one for foundation, one for blush. This is better than any kabuki brush out there (I am a former BE brush lover). It holds a lot of the powder and applies color evenly and beautifully... and it's SO SOFT! And the absolute best part is that it doesn't shed! YAY! I am so sick of brushes that shed! I have purchased more EcoTools brushes since and the quality is better than any of the expensive brushes I purchased in the past. If you don't have at least one of these brushes, you're missing out!
This brush, being so soft and dense, picks up a lot of product so it is definitely a great brush for powder foundations and mmu, I swirl it once and I get good coverage. It is my favorite brush for powder foundations. I haven't tried it with liquid though.
Absolutely LOVE this brush. Feels like velvet against your skin! Perfect for mineral make up, an absolute must have.
