i was browsing through different beauty blogs and ran into a review on eco tools brushes and after reading the reviews on this site, i just had to go to the local longs drugs store and see if they carried this brand there and sure enough, they had the retractable kabuki brush in stock!! since it was the last one, i just had to get it and with my nephews discount, i happily skipped away paying a little over $5 for it!! i went home and applied some foundation on and was amazed at how incredibly soft the brush felt against my skin!! OMG!!! my foundation went on pretty nice and even and i am very happy that i got this instead of the mac kabuki that i had my eye on. its also 100% natural and animal cruelty free!!! great find and great brand!!! HG from now on!!! :)
I'm so glad I found the reviews for this brush! It's soft, doesn't shed, and applies my mineral makeup just fine. I pitched my BE kabuki right away. It was so scratchy. I've since bought the Ecotools blush brush and mineral brush (for applying the veil) and they're good too!
I am so glad I got this brush. It's soft and dense enough to apply my powder foundation. The application is amazing, I really like the results. I think its inexpensive for the quality of the brush. I have washed it a few times and it has kept its shape, no shedding. Great find!
Another MUA suggestion which not only did not dissapoint, it exceeded. I started to put a 'dirt cheap' on this, as I paid $9us for it, but that's a little high for a drugstore brush. Things are so expensive!!! But I digress...this is a wonderful, super duper soft and highly convienient brush. It picks up just the right amount of product, a small tap and you're good to go. I use it for my smashbox halo, which frankly I was holding off on reviewing due to the fact it seemed to make the fine lines around my eyes look worse. Must have been the lame little kabuki it came with (rediculous, given the price Imo) cause now that powder goes on beautifully. So, this pretty cheap ds brush saved the highend overpriced powder. Good for Ecotools.
I discovered this brush on Oprah's web site under the drugstore treasures link. Even though I already have MUFE's synthetic kabuki brush and love it, I couldn't resist picking this one up. It works great and it's convenient with it's covered case. It picks up powder really well and feels great against the skin. Best of all, it's not expensive so I don't have to feel guilty about buying it.
this brush is amazing. all my brushes are from trish mcevoy (whom i love) and some from mac. well, this little beauty is my new fav for mineral makeup. i do have a little kabuki brush from trish, but it is not as soft as ecotools one. as i've been blessed with extremely sensitive skin, i need the softest brush possible - which is a challenge.
i would have never-ever bought it if not for this forum. thank you
OMG, this is true love ;) Everything is perfect, the package is cool, the size is perfect and the bristles are oh so soft, it must be the softest out there. If there is anything to complain about ecotools brushes, it must be that they're too soft, so that it can't be used with pressed powder and blush. But when it come to kabuki brush, the softness is god-sent. It's a bliss to me to wake up every morning and feel this baby caress my face. And the price? It can't be beat. They say that they're often on sale but I never see that at my close by rite aid. Well, I think they don't bother to do that while every ecotools brush put out just disappear in a blink. It isn't perfectly balanced shaped as my everyday minerals kabuki and doesn't seem to be as enduring though. But for the price and the supreme quality, I can purchase three of them every year. And with a smile!
I absolutely love this brush. I own quite a few of Ecotools brushes: 2 blush brushes, a few powder brushes, few eye shadow brushes, etc., and just saw this one on my last trip to the drugstore. Bought it right away. I already have a great kabuki brush from EDM, but at the price I couldn’t say no. Did not disappoint! Very soft, dense, and does a great job. Perfect for my sensitive skin!!! I wish I used make up more often. LOL. Will repurchase!
I love this kabuki and plan on buying another as soon as I see it at my drugstore again. It's sleek packaging, easy to use and made of synthetic bristles. I paid about $7USD. Much more affordable than the Too Faced Retractable Kabuki and just as good!
This brush works well and feels great. I had a few hairs shed. Only problem with the packaging is removing the brush from the initial zip lock pouch. It was hard to take it out without getting the bristles damaged on the way : (
