Ecotools Review.

I just wanted to give a little review of my powder brush. Of course everyone knows about Ecotools, but I haven't bought from the brand in a while. Not because I didn't want too but purely cos I didn't need to. But a few weeks back I thought I had lost my old, scruffy powder brush so went and invested in this baby. Although I did find my other brush about two days later, I only use it now for blusher in an emergency - it is not half as good quality as this.

I really should have give this a rinse before taking photos but never mind. This is actually the Ecotools blusher brush but I prefer to use it to apply my pressed powder (which all smashed in my bag yesterday - not happy). I picked it up from Boots for £7.99 - you can buy it here

A few things I love about the brand (this isn't in anyway a sponsored post, I just really like Ecotools), firstly they use synthetic materials for the brush, no 'real hair' which is a big thumbs up from me. Secondly the entire brush and handle is from recycled and natural materials hence the name. And lastly this brush is so amazingly soft and lovely to use. I was going to pick up a Real Techniques brush instead of this but I'm glad I didn't cos I've seen a few people saying these are better. I'm desperate for the full 5 piece set but that might have to wait until after Christmas.

I don't know if it's the brush or my powder, but I seem to get a very smooth, even finish when I use this. It just seems to glide over your face and leave a really nice matte finish. If you're wondering I'm currently using Witch Pressed Powder which is £1.99 from Bodycare. 

If you are looking for a new brush set or just a single brush I would very much recommend these. I have used the foundation brush in the past and I remember it being really easy to clean and dry - but to be honest I prefer using my current foundation with clean fingers rather than a 'paint brush' as the hubby calls it. 

Speaking of Christmas I've just wrapped all of my presents!

Hope you've had a nice weekend.

  1. I've been sticking to Real Techniques but next time I need a new brush I will definitely look at Ecotools x

  2. This has got to be one of my favourite brushes, I actually use it more for contouring though.... Just seems to work :) xx

  3. Loads of seller is Hong Kong are selling the five piece set for under £5 :)
    Just thought you might like to know, will take a while for them to get to you but worth the money!
