Review of Ecotools Finishing Kabuki by maomaouchi
Once again, I have absolutely nothing negative to say about Ecotools. This is a gorgeous, unique looking short-handled duo-fiber brush with a head similar to the infamous MAC 187, with the difference being that the head on this brush is about 20% larger than the 187 and is made of two different types of synthetic fibers.
It's marketed as a finishing kabuki but my favorite way to use it is as a foundation brush to apply my MUFE F&B. I use it first to dot foundation all over my face and then to buff it all in so that it's blended. It blends the foundation both seamlessly, and equally as important for me, efficiently--it only takes me about 30 sec. to do my face because the brush is so big and effective (lol...that sounds kinda gross). It doesn't waste product either because the brush doesn't absorb much due to its more sparse, longer hairs at the top of the brush head, which cannot collect a lot of foundation. However, it still allows for effortless blending because the bottom of the brush is denser and the fibers there help to buff the product into your skin once it has been evenly distributed by the top fibers. It's also extremely reliable as it doesn't shed one bit and can be washed very easily. On top of all this, I think it's also much more soft than the 187 and much, much cheaper. Win win, all the way. Definitely an HG item for me!
