I just bought the 5 peice brush set yesterday at Ulta. OMG i looove the they are unbelievably soft and gentle, and so cheap. You get a set of 5 brushes for about $14 compared to one mac brush for close to $30. I absolutley love the blush brush, it is very soft and picks up the powder very well, and it looks very natural. All of the brushes are soft and work well. I would absolutley buy this again. I really love the hemp- cotton bag to hold the brushes, it makes me feel like a pro makeup artist! =] The plastic/hemp-cotton bag that it's all packaged in is even reuseable and it is very cute. I really love these brushes.
I cannot recommend these enough. They are amazing! So soft, don't shed, awesome value for the price. Cruelty free, and high quality. (I had been wanting the Too Faced brush set, but their "Teddy Bear Hair" brushes, which get wonderful reviews, are actually taklon, just like these brushes. Ecotools are just as good, and 1/6th of the price!)
I snagged this set at Target for $12 and I must say: I'm pretty impressed.
Set comes with a Blusher, concealer, small shadow brush, liner brush and a brow groomer--all packaged in a canvas tote.
Good-quality brushes. precise and clean up easily. Concealer brush is taklon and well-shaped.
I found the natural-bristle brow-shaper to be utterly useless and just a throw-in. The kit would have been just fine without its addition.
Bamboo handles are shaped well and brush heads withstand use and washing well--no bristle-loss or head-separation from the handle.
Amazing quality for $12- you can find them at Target. These brushes feel like expensive over the counter sets that my friends own. I can't believe the quality of these little brushes for the price. If you don't own a nice brush set yet or you would like a nice set for travel, purchase these. You won't be disappointed.
These brushes are wonderful. They are so incredibly soft, they feel like velvet on your skin. And for only $10-$12 for a set of brushes, you can't beat it. I would say if you are new to makeup or a makeup veteran you should have these in your collection. Why go spend $30+ on one Mac brush when you can get a whole set of brushes (of comparable quality I might add) for only a 1/3 of the price!!
Go check them out, they are worth it!
I am on the fence with this product. I only use the blush brush and the slanted eye liner brush, the latter which is good. The blush brush is too soft and I am not too impressed with its application.
I LOVE this set! My favorite brush is the one that's meant to be a blush brush, but I use it for loose powder. It seriously feels like velvet on my skin (I swiped it across my fiancee's face and he agreed!)! Honestly I don't use the others on a regular basis (although they work just as well), but I think I've gotten my $11 in usage out of just the one. I'm very happy I chose this set, as I was debating this vs. a more expensive Sonia Kashuk set while in Target.
I purchased this 6 pc. set of brushes from Walgreens for $10.00. One of the pieces was a wooden bamboo pencil-box like holder for the 5 brushes. I was excited to try these after reading so many good reviews. Needless to say, I was very disappointed in the application of makeup with these brushes. The blush brush was way to soft and gave me no control whatsoever in applying color. The eyeshadow brush was nothing special. Also too soft. The concealer brush was so-so. The comb/eyebrow brush was useless to me and the other brush was also useless. Therefore, I am still on the lookout for a better set with more control and not so soft. The brushes pick up way too much product for my taste.
I absolutely love these brushes. I was saving up for some new MAC ones but it was taking forever and I saw this five-piece set (not including the nifty little pouch) at Rite Aid for about $11. I wasn't expecting much but these brushes really blew me away. I just love the fact that they're cruelty free & enviornmentally friendly.
But the quality is what I was really floored with. The bamboo handles are light and sturdy, very pretty in design, as well. The taklon brush part is very, very soft! They're just as soft, if not softer, than any MAC brush I've used. The face brush is very dense and distributes product evenly, as do the rest of the brushes. The eye shader is very dense, but if I had to complain, it would be about the density. It's just a bit too dense to apply pressed shadows, but it would be great for packing on loose pigment. The concealer brush is perfect if you don't like to use your fingers. It's very gentle and dense enough to where it'll evenly blend the color but soft enough to where it won't just wipe it away. My favorite one, however, is the angle brush. It's so sharp and precise, it surprised me the most. I love using this for my gel and wet-shadow liners, it applies like a dream. I don't really ever use brow brushes, but this one is high-quality anyway.
I'm keeping these brushes in a glass jar on my vanity, but if I do travel with them, the pouch will come in handy, too. This is an amazing brush set...very inexpensive, would probably make a great gift.
(and as far as washing them goes, they take to antibacterial soap & water beautifully and because they're synthetic, they dry really fast, I haven't noticed any shedding, either.)
Got this as a gift and I really like it. The blush brush is very soft, the eye brush works great and the angled brush is good for thick gel liner application. I haven't try the concealer of lash/brow comb yet but I can tell they are good quality. I loooove the brush roll it came with too!
This is has opened me up to EcoTools products and will likely shop their brand on my own in the future.
