And as you can see, they were sent to me by Eazy Fashion.
After sponsoring my Summer Splash Giveaway (which they did oh-so-generously, by the way), the kind people that they are even gave me this as a token of appreciation. Talk about perfect timing! I had been planning on buying a new kabuki brush, as my four-year-old Walgreens-bought kabuki conked out on me sometime last month.
I've seen a handful of positive reviews for this brush set, and seeing the likes here only goes to show how popular this brand is. Heck, I have three friends AND even my cousin begging me for this.
The EcoTools 5-piece brush set includes:
- Mineral Powder Brush
- Concealer Brush
- Eye Shading Brush
- Baby Kabuki
- Cosmetic Bag
So basically, it's a set intended for the entire face. The handles are shorter and the brush heads are a bit smaller than the usual as they are meant to be a travel set - the kind that you can easily stash in your purse.
Made with synthetic taklon bristles, recycled aluminum ferules, and bamboo handles, these brushes are certified eco-friendly and cruelty-free.
Compared to animal hair, which has cuticles that can easily pick-up dead skin cells, dust, and other contaminants (therefore making your brush an unsanitary breeding ground for bacteria), taklon doesn't have hair cuticles and has antibacterial properties. So if you're the type who doesn't clean makeup brushes on a weekly basis, then EcoTools would definitely suit you.
As for its versatility, I gave the concealer brush a run with my thick and creamy Missha Under Eye Brightener. And what do you know... it glided smoothly despite the concealer's heavy texture! Plus, the brush is shaped perfectly, at least, in my humble opinion.
The eye shading brush, on the other hand, is just as soft and packs just the right amount of color. I use this primarily as a blender, as I prefer to use those tiny applicators for my eyeshadow.
As for the mineral powder brush, it picks up and packs color easily, and to my liking. However, I find it smaller than the usual face brush so I use it as my blusher instead.
And then there's the baby kabuki, my favorite brush in this set. Despite being smaller than the regular-sized ones, this baby kabuki is dense enough for my Krave Luxurious Perfection. Yes, the handle may be small and the brush head may not be big enough to cover my entire face, but I love it nonetheless.
Finally, the cosmetic bag, which is made of 55% hemp linen (yes, hemp, as in Cannabis sativa, lol) and 45% cotton. At first, I found it a bit too snug for the mineral powder brush. But after stretching the bag a bit by gently tugging at its corners, lo and behold, the mineral powder brush fit inside perfectly, along with the other brushes. And there's even some space left for a lipstick, a lip balm, or maybe even a Sleek MakeUp blush.
All in all, I'm pretty satisfied with this set and grateful because I received this as a gift. :)
And in case you want a set like mine, you can purchase it for only Php 590 at Eazy Fashion. You can even get the EcoTools brush set for only Php 495 if you include five other items in your order. Pretty affordable for something this nice, right?
