Ecotools 6 piece eye brush set review

Hi!


This post is going to review the Ecotools 6 piece eye brush set. It's a travel brush kit which is quite small and can be slipped into any corner of your luggage.


I have already reviewed EcoTools brushes here. I really like their brushes and I am happy to add more to my collection. Now this says 6-piece but there are actually 5 brushes only. The brush roll is considered the 6th piece.


Some features of this kit:


  • The brushes come in a brush roll made of cloth, and has an in-built mirror.
  • The brushes have shorter handles (as can be seen in pics below.)
  • Each brush has it's function stamped on the handle so you know exactly what each brush is for.
  • There is a blending, shader, crease, highlight and smudge brush. 
So as you can see, it really is a handy brush kit to have when you are travelling.

Coming to actually using these brushes, they are pretty good.

  • Blending brush: is quite densely packed with bristles and reminds me of the MAC 227. It's not a dupe for sure but the size and thickness remind me of the 227. I actually use it for my highlight because it is just too big for my crease or for blending for my eyes.
  • Crease brush: This is one is a really fluffy, angled brush and actually would work perfectly for the crease. I again find that it works great for highlight
  • Highlight brush: actually looks like a crease brush. It's fluffy and similar to MAC's 224
  • Shade brush: is a flat, really tiny shader brush and is awesome for the inner corner of my eyes. It helps with complicated looks where you need to be really carefull with how much e/s you put on.
  • Smudge brush is again a tiny pencil brush. I really like it for my under eye, inner corner and ever crease.
Here are some pics to give you all a better idea of these brushes.

EASY TO USE BRUSHES W/ FUNCTION PRINTED ON THE  HANDLE!


NEXT TO THE MAC 217 - not as long!






COMPARED TO MAC 224 and 217.

THE UNIQUE ANGLED FLUFFY BRUSH!


So my overall opinion on these brushes is that I like them especially the tiny smudger and shader brush. The blending brush is okay, because I don't really use it for blending. It's just too large. The highlight brush works as an extra blending and crease brush for me. I really like the angled fluffy brush - I have not seen too many of these. It works great for blending out a crease and as a highlight brush.

I would recommend these brushes to those who are starting out their brush collection or those who don't have too many of these. If you are one of those people who already have a large repertoire of brushes, I think you can skip these. They are affordable and good quality also. 

So that's it from me. Questions? Comments? Leave them below! Till next time, thanks & tata!!

  6. Sorry Lioness, I don't think they are available in India. You might have to try an online store for this! Sorry!
