The amount of money spent on beauty products add up fast. It’s awesome to know that budget friendly products that deliver the same as high end brands are popping up in the market. There are some things I am hesitant to splurge on, such as makeup brushes, and this is why I have been a fan of EcoTools for years.
Ecotools is a company that creates environment friendly cosmetic and bath tools. Their bristles are soft and cruelty-free, the ferrule is made of recycled aluminium, and the handles is made of bamboo. Best of all, they’re relatively inexpensive, affordable, and delivers the same quality as high end brushes. What I also love about EcoTools brushes is that they come with a reusable pouch (that is made of natural materials) so it’s convenient to bring them to go. My EcoTools collection already consists of the Deluxe Concealer Brush, Eye Shading Brush, and the Flat Foundation Brush.
I recently got to try the EcoTools Skin Perfecting Brush($9.99). It’s meant for BB Creams, CC Creams, and tinted moisturizers. I usually use fingers to blend these products on my face, which I know is not the best idea since I might end up with a germy face. As you can see, the Skin Perfecting Brush is designed at an angle for those hard to reach places, such as under the nose.
Achieve a natural look while evening out skin tone with this two-tone brush, specially designed to smoothly apply BB/CC creams and tinted moistureizers. The angled edge is ideal for precise application around the nose and under eyes. Let your natural glow shine through with our hand-cut tapered design that allows you to apply your skincare products with sheer but complete coverage. Our brushes are a safe and effective alternative to using your finger.
The bristles are densely packed and deliver comfortable application, no pokey feeling on my face! Though the hairs are man made, the bristles didn’t fly anywhere after I washed it. I’ve had some cheap brushes from Walmart where the hairs dry in random directions after one use.
I tested the brush out using my NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. I squeezed some on the top of my hand and dabbed it with the brush. As you can see, most of the tinted moisturizer is concentrated at the top part of the angle. To get even and full coverage of goop on my skin, the Skin Perfecting Brush used up more product than I am used to. The NARS Tinted Moisturizer is very thin so I figure that maybe this brush is better used for thicker products. I also tried it with NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and found that I needed less product to blend around my under eyes.
Lastly, I tried this brush to dab on blush, and voilà, I have discovered its hidden power. It is easier to collect an even layer of powder blush on it and it fits the contour of my cheekbones easily! I mentioned before that I used Sephora Pro Precision Blush Brush #73 for my blushes in a previous post, but lately, I found that brush is hard to blend when I have too much product on it. However, EcoTools solves that problem!
Overall, I am pleased with how it feels on my face. I have several angled brushes and this one delivers, just not as a (thin) BB Cream/ Tinted Moisturizer brush. However, I am going to try the brush on even thicker products, such as my It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye concealer and continuing to use it as an alternative to my other blush brushes rather than a tinted moisturizer.
If you have had the same or different experience, let me know! Are there other EcoTools or affordable brushes that is a must have?
EcoTools brushes and makeup tools can be purchased online, London Drugs, or Walmart.
