Well I have to agree that these brushes are sold at a great price and I also have to agree that all of the ecotool brushes are extremely soft and gentle to the face, however I can't really get on the whole 'ecotools are the most fantastic brushes ever' bandwagon. Considering the price I got better brushes than I expected but they weren't great.
I can appreciate the appeal of the softness factor but sometimes certain products just call for a stronger stiffer brush. I find the baby kabuki brush in this set pretty much useless. It is nice and soft but it also flimsy in some ways. I need a kabuki that will stand up and blend the minerals into my skin. The baby kabuki bends and folds and flops over when trying to blend and I feel like the mmu is just sort of getting dragged across the surface of my skin instead of being blended in.
Same with the larger blush brush or is it a powder brush. I'm not sure but either way it's not as good as my other brushes. Again it's soft and feels nice but doesn't do as good a job as my mac blush and powder brushes.
The small blending brush is very nice and seems adequate for blending my eyeshadows. No complaints about this brush. The concealer brush is nice too but I have a better one.
Overall ecotools makes good brushes for the money they charge but they are not that remarkable in quality. If I knew someone on a tight budget or someone who was very young and just starting to get into makeup brushes I would recommend ecotools to them because as I said, they are not bad brushes for the money. But if someone told me they wanted good high quality high performance brushes and they didn't care about price, I would probably steer them in a different direction.
PROS: Love, love, love. So soft. Inexpensive for the quality you get. Compact handles. Attractive design. This company's brushes reminds me of Too-Faced's lovely brushes.
CONS: May be a bit too soft for those who don't like that in their brushes.
I love these brushes. I use them everyday and they are so soft.
LOVE! Such a good brush set! I only ever use these four brushes everyday. Comes with a convenient case (even though I never use it because it never leaves my bathroom :P). The brushes are sooo soft and not scratchy at all. Have not had any problems with bristles falling out. Would definitely buy again! <3
Love most of the brushes in this set although the larger kabuki brush is a bit to soft to use as my main brush to buff in my mineral makeup so I use it to applying a finishing powder and for that it works great.
What I really love is the mini kabuki which works wonderful for applying my mineral makeup under my eyes. A little goes a long way there and you want to apply with a light hand as to not enhance fine lines.
Conceler brush awesome when using with my Benfit Boiing .
I've never had brushes this soft. Went out and bought the blush brush on it's own and that works great as well.
Really glad I took the recommendations here and gave this line a try.
brishes are sooooo and sooo amazing the hairs do not fall out and they apply my powder so well. i would have liked the concealer brush to be a bit more compact and small ( to get more product and control out of it) but it still works fine and there all SO SOFT !!!! i love themmmmm
These Brushes are AMAZING !
i amsoulutly LOVE them. They are soooooo soft, just amazing <3
OMG I love these brushes! The big face brush is so wonderful for powder, it applies so wonderfully and evenly. Love love love. Got these at Rite Aid, had no expectations, and I was wonderfully impressed.
Love the pwerder brush for bronzer and the eyeshadow brush for applying powder to my consealer. I use the pouch for seperating make ups in my larger make up bag, great for keeping small single eyeshadows from being lost in the bottom of my bag. Use other brushes at least weekly.
This one is a brush set which I carry them in my makeup bag. The upper part of the bristle is soft while the white part is little stiff. The small kabuki brush is not dense enough and can not keep in shape very well. Both of the two face brush can not apply blush well because of the shape.
