Omg, again with the long gap *sigh*. I got so many things to blog about, a couple of product reviews and I haven't written all the wedding prep posts and our honeymoon when we just got back from our second last week mehehehehe. So, here's a filler post meanwhile I'm working on the second part of the wedding prep post!
Ok, so today I'm gonna review about Ecotools Bamboo 6 Piece Brush Set! When they said 6 pieces it means 5 brushes+1 cotton hemp case to store the brushes.
Here's how it looks like!
Ok, apparently this is the old packaging because now if you go see their web it looks different with bronze ferules and green floral prints on the case. Very pretty~ They also changed the name into "6 Piece Starter Set" which I agree! Because these brushes are perfect for beginner (like me). To be honest this is my first brush set! It's very affordable and pretty much covers what you need for basic makeup application. Not to mention it's pretty and earth friendly too! No wonder it's bestseller and people rave about it in MUA :)
Let's start with the blush brush!
One of my fave in this set! Bristles super soft and dense, no shedding, picks and applies powder nicely. The handle also in perfect length. I know it says blush brush but I'm currently using this for my loose powder and I'm loving it :)
Next, eye shading brush!
I'm still trying to figure out how to apply eye shadows properly (because I rarely wear eye shadows and even when I do it's usually one color only -.- #noob) so during my trial and error I rely on this brush for applying powder eye shadows and blending any harsh lines after my lousy application. It's pretty much ok IMO (the brush, not my so-called skill -.-).
The third is eyeliner brush!
My other fave! It's angled for easier application, great for gel liner. I use it for my eyebrows, it picks up enough pigment and then with short and gentle strokes apply it to your brows! With dark brown eye shadow, I also use it to draw aegyo sal (puffy eyes look, popularized by Korean stars) by stamping it carefully under my eyes ^ ^
Fourth, concealer brush!
This brush is smaller and flat, great for liquid/cream concealer. Just tap tap and blend carefully.
And lastly, lash and brow groomer!
You use the brush for brows and the comb for separating your lashes. It does a pretty good job albeit I prefer using spoolie for my brows.
- Cute packaging. I love the bamboo handles! They also give this cotton hemp case which I think very useful. The new packaging even has prettier design! :D
- Brush quality is good enough for beginners. It's better than most cheap, brand less brushes you find in outlets like Strawberry, Naughty etc.
- This set pretty much has everything a beginner needs!
- Cruelty free, earth friendly
- Affordable! It's USD 12.99 in their web which is approximately IDR 144k for 5 pcs of brush!
- Not easily available, at least in Indonesia fml -.- You might have to buy it online. I tried my luck and fail until finally my sister got this for me.
I'm pretty much satisfied with this set. I kinda wish they add more to this set, maybe a powder/face brush or lip brush #greedy lololol . Would love to repurchase when mine worn down but for now I'd love to try other brushes from Ecotools! :D
