I love these! I'm a fan of all the EcoTools brushes and these are no exception. Great quality, last forever, don't shed, very affordable. I love the little pouch they come with and so practical for travel.

pros:
- affordable
- easy for travel (comes in a travel pouch)
- environmental friendly
- soft bristles
- firm grip (except for mini kabuki)
- long-lasting
- doesn't shed

cons:
- not all brushes are hype-worthy
- there are fake sets in the market


Mineral brush: This is the best of the bunch. Great for applying powder & blush. The bristles are smooth yet firm.
Mini kabuki: Mainly use this for blush. Too small to function as anything else.
Eyeshadow brush: Use this to set concealer with powder. It doesn't really pick up that much product. I don't use eyeshadow so can't comment on that.
Concealer brush: Least used and most useless of the bunch. It doesn't pick up any product (currently using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage). Brush head is too large for precise concealing. Such a disappointment.


Had mine for more than 6 months now. They can withstand all the cleaning routine pretty well. Dries up pretty fast if you wipe the bristles with microfibre cloth.

Also, be very aware of fake ecotools brush. The fake products are almost similar to the real ones but the quality is very shoddy. Make sure to purchase them at authorised retailer.

Repurchase? Maybe. Probably will get the normal size individual items next time since this comes in a set and I'm not a fan of all the brushes. Recommend to others? Yes. It's a good product if you want to try out ecotools for the first time.

I bought this for my travel makeup kit, and I really like the powder/blush brush and the kabuki brush, they're the ones I've used the most so far. I haven't really used the foundation & eyeshadow brushes yet, unfortunately, & more often than not I leave them at home. I like the size, portability & quality. Not too expensive for a 4pc. kit with a case. I'd definitely repurchase & would even give this as gifts to my girlfriends.

I only like the powder brush and the eyeshadow brush.
Powder brush - firm enough, and has a good shape to apply mineral make up, contour powder and blush
Eyeshadow Brush - no complaints here

The other 2 brushes I don't like that much and the reasons are:
Kabuki - not dense enough
Fluffy brush - would prefer a denser crease crush, as it has more uses. Being fluffy i ended up using to blend out my crease shadow.

I used to keep this at work so I could touch up. Its not bad for travelling.

I bought this set for a month long trip where I was carry-on only and trying to maximize every bit of space. My biggest want was a compact but good brush for powder bronzer that wouldn't leave my mug muddy or streaky. As it turns out, I LOVE this brush set and it was perfect for travel!

The mini kabuki is small but works practically as good as Eco-tools awesomely big bronzer brush. It picks up color without having to dig in your compact, and deposits and blends it on the face without any streaks, spots or muddiness. The bigger face brush I would use all over (I don't wear face powder besides bronzer) when I wanted to buff out my bronzer and or blush a little bit more, and it was great for that. The stiffer bristled small brush they have marked for concealer but I used those dense flat bristles for my darker eyeshadow on the lid and then the fluffier blush for lighter shadows/the crease/blending and both of those were great too.

The brushes are small enough to be easy to pack but still sized appropriately to be effective and easy to use. The quality of the brushes is quite nice especially considering the low price; bristles are very soft and I didn't have a single strand fall out. The little case was perfect for storage too and I could even fit a few more little tools (tweezers, mini blush brush) in there too. Definitely recommend this set!

I get a lot of use with the powder brush and the kabuki brush. Not much for the foundation and eyeshadow brush. I love how travel friendly this set is but I feel like I could have bought a good full-sized Real Techniniques brush and be more satisfied instead of these tiny pieces. I love how dense and soft the brushes are but I don't feel the need to purchase this set again.

These little brushes are great for travel. I mainly use the powder and eyeshadow brush. Fit very easily into a makeup bag. They are also very soft and well worth the $$ you will spend.

These brushes are AMAZING. Not only is this brand organic and cruelty free, but these brushes are so soft and well made. It comes with a kabuki brush, mineral powder brush, concealer brush and eye shader brush. Every brush blends in the product very very well. This is also pretty cheap compared to the other expensive brushes out there, but i find that these products do just as well.

These are the only brushes I own, and they really get the job done! They're soft and give an even application, and the packaging is really cute and travel-friendly! I use the kabuki for powders and blushes, the eyeshadow brush for shadows (obviously), and the other two I don't really use as much. When I use the concealer brush, it's for eyeshadows, and then I would follow up with the shadow brush to blend. I never use the powder brush except for bronzer, which I rarely use since my skin is dark anyway. My only issue with this product is the kabuki brush's handle; it's really short, making the brush more difficult and uncomfortable to use. If the kabuki handle were longer, it would be the perfect little brush set, but it's still great for beginners and budget-conscious people!
