Review of Ecotools Holiday Kabuki Set by BeautyAndTheBlush
OMG! I'm so excited these amazing kabukis are finally on MUA!!! I'm obsessed with them! I love all Ecotools brushes sooooOOOoooo much, but oh my gosh...DON'T even get me started on these ones!!!!! Well...I guess I have to since I'm doing a review right? ^_^
Price--> I paid around $15 plus tax for this limited edition brush set from Winners. That was the only time I ever saw these brushes in Canada and man am I glad I got them when I did, since there was only one lonely brush set sitting there on the shelf! It was kinda ironic because I was actually at Winners looking for a flat-top brush (specifically the Elf Studio line) and well...yeah I kinda came across these, saw the lovely flat-top buff brush in it and couldn't resist. I FREAKED OUT.The rest is kinda hazy, but I remember telling the cashier how excited I was that they sold these brushes...(she probably thought I was insane) but oh well!!!!! OHH yeah, back to the review...
Packaging Quality--> I'm gonna give packaging a 5/5 because I've kept the packaging to display these fab brushes. It's so cute how there's labels for them as well! The designs on each brushes are super cute as well. They add a little pizzazz to my makeup routine each morning :D!
Brush Quality--> One word. S-O-F-T!!! (I'm describing the brushes from left to right, as they are seen in the packaging) The "conceal" brush is extremely dense (the most dense of them all) and for this reason, you can really buff in concealer around your face and nose. The brush shape is unique and very practical because it can get into those hard-to-reach places! The "bronze" brush on the contrary is the least dense of them all and is angled so it can be used either to apply bronzer all around the face, or it fits perfectly on cheeks to apply a natural flush of blush.Next is the "contour" brush, which is tapered at the top so you can apply bronzer in the hallows of your cheekbones for that flawless and well-blended finish, or use it to highlight above the cheekbones. This brush is quite dense as well, so if you wear mineral foundation you can buff it in very well! Lastly, (probably my fave) is the "buff" brush. I love this brush for when I apply powder because first of all...it feels SUPER soft on my face and secondly, it gives a really nice finish! This brush is not as dense as I imagined (not as dense as the sigma F80), so I don't know how it would work with liquid foundation, but these brushes are so versatile I would experiment with each one of them until you find what works!
So...I would definitively repurchase, but I'm pretty sure I won't need to! If you don't have these brushes and have seen them in stores...I recommend you give them a try ;). Like me, you probably won't be disappointed with Ecotools brushes!!!
