I couldn't agree more with the reviewer below me: this is really a "blend everything" brush. It has a soft, silky texture that blends everything from blush to bronzer to powder seamlessly and effortlessly. I had to travel clear across Houston to find an Ulta that had it in stock, and it was worth every moment I spent sitting in traffic. This brush easily rivals anything by M.A.C., and for less than half the price. I plan to pick up a second one for blending my liquid foundation if my local Ulta ever gets them back in stock!
So affordable, great quality.
There is something special about this brush. I find that even when I've finished doing my makeup- if anything looks streaky or not blended well, I grab this brush and use it to blend everything. Almost gives an airbrushed look. I would go as far as saying it's a "finishing brush" in addtion to it being great for foundation, bronzer, etc. I feel like my other brushes, even the really expensive ones, brush on the product and swirl it around, but it's up to my blending abilities to make it look good. Where as in this case, the brush does that all on its own. Does this make any sense at all? Maybe I sound like a lunatic. All I know is I reach for this everyday- great for bronzing your neck and chest as well.
My first brush was attacked by a run-in with super glue. Was very heartbreaking. If my memory serves me correctly, going to get a replacement happened within minutes of it being ruined.
Can't live without <3<3<3 ***Handle is really thick, but doesn't seem to phase me- perhaps it is more difficult to maneuver for those with small hands---but I wouldn't know because when I use it I am swept away by it's magicall-ness and revel in it's stunning ability to blend like a dream...
Makes it hard to focus. Okay, I'm done now...
Yes Yes Yes! I would replace this brush ten times over!! Having a love affair with this brush at the moment. It is as soft as velvet, super soft densely packed bristles into a chubby bamboo handle. It cost so little and feels like pure luxury on the face. I have used it for bronzer, for mineral foundation, for powder, and blending. How I wish I could find more drugstore items that are of this quality. Its amazing. Run out and buy one or two before they realize we would pay five times the price for this brush! It isn't often that the motto "you get what you pay for" does not apply!
Love this brush, its super dense, round top and soft. After some time, the bristles are not as soft as when i first got it... though. This brush is denser than elf's kabuki face brush.
I use this brush slightly damp to apply BB cream, stipple all over my face and then buff it all over. I'm done super quick because the brush is so huge.
I feel this brush is much better for powder/mineral foundation, great to buff it all over or to even out your contour or blush application if you find its uneven.
this brush is awesome! i used to LOVE the aluminum retractable eco-tools brush but now it has this icky smell that wont go away no matter how much i wash and no matter how long i leave it out to dry. its just ew now. but THIS brush is super nice. i am planning to get another one to replace the retractable one i have. EDIT: this brush is still super awesome! Its so versatile; i use it for fdtn, powder, bronzer or/and blush...i need backups of my backup...
A wonderful brush for bronzer and countouring. Soft, dense, picks up product well. Nice sturdy handle thats easy to work with. A slightly long drying time after washing, but nothing to moan about. Got it at Ulta for under $10 i believe. Definate winner.
I just bought this brush yesterday and I am IN LOVE with it. I have officially become addicted to ecotools brushes. It started last year with the blush brush and I now own 12 brushes. I used this brush today for mineral foundation, translucent powder, bronzer, and blush in that order. To use it for another product, you simply have to wipe it off because it's synthetic and won't hold on to the color. On the other hand, while putting it on, it does an amazing job of depositing just the right amount of color and giving you the ability to buff it out as much or as little as you like. If I could only have one face brush- this would be it. The packaging is useless for reusing but in my college dorm everyone is given a recycling bin to keep in their room and I like that I can recycle them rather than just toss them. The price for someone on a budget seems like a bit much but after feeling some MAC brushes, I have decided that the 9 dollars I paid for this one is a steal compared to the 40 dollars I would be willing to spend on it. This brush is a must-have for anyone who uses a face brush for anything!
I bought this a year ago and I still use to this day. I love it for my mineral and liquid foundations. It blends beautifully!
I love how easy this brush makes putting on my liquid foundation so quickly and easily. I used it for the first time today and I was so amazed that I had to write a review for it. The brush is so dense that it is able to "sponge" the foundation and blend it onto your face. I used the stippling method, or so I think I did...
From the beautifully crafted, bamboo handle to the super densely packed, soft, synthetic bristles..this brush is one of the stand out brushes in my collection..far more so than some of my higher end brushes! I adore this brush! It's absolutely gorgeous to look at, is as soft as my rabbit's fur and applies powder products like a dream. It's so effortless to buff any product from powder foundation, setting powder, bronzer to blush into the skin as well as spreading and blending liquid/cream/mineral foundations. Since the bristles are so soft, they don't give that micro-exfoliating effect that some, rougher brushes can do to the skin by pulling up dead skin cells. This brush keeps the skin smooth and radiant even after buffing product in for a good amount of time. Eco Tools is a fantastic brand of brushes and make up applicators...fantastic quality and great for the environment..how can you go wrong? The top of the brush is a dome shape so it's like a long handled, kabuki brush really..definitely the best quality, kabuki brush in my collection and I have about 4. Don't ask why..I'm a fiend. :) Anyhoo, I highly recommend this brush! It's a must have just like the SK Flat Topped Brush and the MAC 130, imo.. The price is awesome, don't hesitate to pick this up if you come across it at your local drug store or Ulta!
