I’m a late boomer. I also believe in the phrase Better Late Than Never. I’ve always heard of Ecotools but never really tried it before probably due to the price tag and the brushes being synthetic brushes. I never liked the feel of synthetic brushes because they feel ‘plasticky’ and not as comfortable on the skin. I was at Shins a month ago, and after I touched the bristles of this brush, I caved.
I never thought synthetic brushes could be so soft and smooth, dense but not stiff. This bronzer brush to me, is like a kabuki brush on stick. LOL! It is like my MAC 182 but with a much longer handle. Its sheer size dominates all my other brushes on the table. It stands proud and glorious, catching falling dust before others. Haha!
I like to use this to buff in powder. I also use this as a finishing touch to blend out foundations. It works great to blend out harsh edges of your blush too. It is good for multi tasking, that’s for sure. Since it is a bronzer brush, I also tried this to buff in bronzer to the high points of my face, where sunlight would hit. The result is amazing! This brush helps blend and buff in the product into the skin, making my face look naturally sun kissed, never streaky. The handle is long enough for a comfortable grip, unlike the much shorter kabuki brush handles which sometimes can be a pain to hold.
After using, you can also conveniently just pop it on your desk. I wouldn’t recommend putting it into your brush cups / holders, because it takes a lot of space. This brush is easy to wash but since it is a dense synthetic brush, it takes a much longer time to dry. Ecotools is a line of 100% cruelty free brushes. The bristles though all synthetic, feel like soft natural hair. The ferules are made of recycled aluminium and the handles are made of bamboo. This is also a brand that is endorsed by the beautiful Alicia Silverstone.
Have you tried Ecotools brushes before? Do you have a favourite?
