I've seen this set forever and finally decided to pick it up. The brushes are so soft and the hemp bag is beautiful. I also like the fact that the brushes can be stored in a seperate pocket so they don't get damaged and they stay clean. Eco tools has won a permanent place in my heart for cosmetic brushes and I am so glad to have this kit in my possession.
PS. to keep my brush side from getting makeup transfer on the hemp material I place one piece of toilet paper behind the brushes then replace the next day. I Do this because I like using these brushes for touch ups on the go.
This is an excellent set of brushes particularly at this price point. I LOVE the "skunk" brush especially and use it for a blush brush. The finish I get is very natural. It picks up the right amount of product and is very easy to apply and blend. The brushes are easy to clean, and I haven't noticed any shedding. Highly recommend!
I use this brush set every day. I got it on sale @ Walmart for about $12. The bag is super cute, but a little on the small side(or maybe I just have too much stuff....hmmm). I love the blush brush and eyeshadow brush. The skunk brush I never touch(I use the bamboo bronzer EcoTools brush instead!!) and the brow/lash tool is basically garbage. For the price, I really don't think I could do much better! I would repurchase this or a similar set if I needed to!
This was the second brush set I bought from EcoTools. I love these brushes! I've washed them many times and there still in perfect condition. They last a long time! I mainly bought this for the duo fiber brush. I use it for blush, highlight, and blending. I wouldn't recommend it for foundation because it's too sparse. The blush brush is nice and has many uses. The eyeshadow brush is my favorite! I use it for my highlight and blending eyeshadow. The eyelash/brow comb is nice too. The makeup bag is cute and good for on the go or traveling. I'm very happy with these brushes and what EcoTools stands for. I totally recommend these to everyone! (:
I really like EcoTools' products. I own this set, plus 4 other of their (individually packaged) brushes, and I also use their bath/shower gloves (the nylon exfoliating kind, which are excellent btw). So I bought this set knowing what to expect in terms of quality and performance. The brushes do no disappoint. Bristles are very soft, handle and packaging materials are eco-friendly (duh) and I actually use the travel pouch. All in all, a very good deal for the money. I own one face brush by Chanel, a couple of Tony & Tina's, a couple of Sephora Prof. Platinums, some Essence of Beauty ones, and a Bobbi Brown –– honestly, I use my EcoTools brushes 90% of the time. The blush brush that comes in this set is particularly superb and I use it daily. Also use the angled shadow brush 3-4 days out of the week. The stippling one I use for powdered highlighter; works beautifully for that. I've used it to apply loose setting powder as well. I do have one complaint (and it's kind of stupid and semi-not even worth mentioning, but it bugs me, so...): What I don't like about this set is the inclusion of the brow/lash comb, because I feel this item is a total cop-out 'filler' brush; a far more useful choice would have been something like a stiff angled liner brush, either a smudge or crease brush for eyes, or even a lip brush would've served 99.9% of people 10x better (in my opinion). Hate to sound ungrateful and picky, because this truly is a fab deal and you're getting equally fab product here, but, seriously, a lash comb?? Who needs that? (Sorry in advance to anyone who's reading this and thinking to themselves, '...I do!') It's annoying when companies charge for something that they probably realize only 2% of us will actually end up using. I'd rather they left it out altogether and knocked a buck or two off the price. *rant over* It sounds like I'm complaining, which I am, haha, but I actually do love this set and these brushes. I highly recommend this set (and the EcoTools brand in general for that matter). continued >>
Oh my goodness, just when I had given up finding this set, it appears in my local target! I snatched it up so quick. Ecotools have never let me down with their brush quality (especially for the price). The brushes are great, as usual. I like that the blush brush looks a bit smaller and more tapered then the blush brush I had from them already. I think they changed the style, it is much more effective at applying blush more precisely and not overdoing it. And it's nice to have that eye brush with a long handle, I just prefer the look of longer handles to the shorter ones. The little bag it comes in is adorable. 100xs better than the usual bulky plastic ecotools packaging. The price is really a steal, even if you only like one of the brushes and the bag or something, heh. The only thing I don't need/use, is the eyelash comb, I have so many of those for some reason! But it's just as good as any standard eyelash comb, so if you need one, there you go. Check your Targets!
Oh and the only other weird thing is that all the brushes individually say ecotools by Alicia Silverstone on them. Which is kind of weird, I think, but oh well who cares!
I love these brush's they are soft and feel so great on your face love the stippling brush and actually do use it for foundation and i think it works great i really like the lil case you get with it i love being able to reuse the case i cant coment much on the eye shadow brush becuz i have so many so i have not used it yet the blush brush it wonderful picks up and deposits color wonderfully all n all great brush set will repurchase if ever needed
This is a great brush set. EcoTools always have good quality brushes, and these are no exception. They hold up well with washing and general wear and tear, I haven't experienced any shedding.
I was excited about the stippling brush but found it to be too floppy for liquid foundation, but it works well as a highlighting or powder brush. I actually really like the eyeshadow brush, I don't fuss with too many colors on my eyes most of the time so this is perfect for an all-over swipe. I don't use the blush brush because I don't wear blush, but it's very soft and dense. The brow brush/comb is like any other brow brush I've used, except more sturdy...somehow I always pick ones that fall apart and this one hasn't.
The case is very nice, I like that it has little holders for the brushes and a separate part for makeup so nothing gets smashed. It's a good value set, I'd highly recommend it.
These brushes are fabulous! They survive washes and do not shed. They are soft and dense. I use the stippling brush for finishing powder. It worked okay for foundation, but I just prefer flat topped brushes for that.
I use every brush in this. I know most people find the eyebrow/lash brush thing useless, but it is so soft, and great for when you're grooming eyebrows. The eyeshadow brush is amazing at applying eyeshadow and creating the outer shape you want, the blush brush is dense and tapered, and the stippling brush - my favorite - is worth the entire price of the set. And you get a bag to put them in when you travel.
I haven't noticed any shedding, and even the hairs that were slightly out of place due to the packaging readjusted when I washed. No strange smells when I wash. And they don't suck up or steal your product!
