EcoTools Fresh & Flawless Five Piece Complexion Set

Saturday, January 11, 2014

When it comes to make-up brushes, I am a Real Techniques girl through and through. Every single brush in my collection, bar perhaps two, is Real Techniques, yet lately I added five brushes by EcoTools into the mix. It was a completely impulsive buy, spurred on by two things. One, I'd read a good review of the set a few days earlier; and two - just look how cute they are! 

Firstly, these brushes are miniature sizes. This perhaps isn't obvious in photographs and could disappoint people who purchase online, so I'd recommend having a look at them in your local stockists before buying to make sure you know exactly what you're getting. The good news, though, is that this makes these brushes absolutely ideal for travel. Included in the set is a Flat Concealer brush, Buffing Concealer brush, Precision Foundation brush, Complexion Blending brush and Full Powder brush. 
I've used all five of the brushes and while they're all well made, good quality brushes with lovely soft bristles, there are some that stand out above the rest for me. The Full Powder Brush is great for a light dusting of setting powder, and the size ensures that you don't overdo it and end up looking cakey. The concealer brushes are fabulous, too. The flat version is a good alternative for your finger and is great for targeting specific areas and blemishes, while the Buffing Concealer brush (easily my favourite of the lot), and is perfect for blending in under-eye concealer to achieve a really flawless finish. I do like the Complexion Blending brush, but find it a tad small for initial application of foundation. It's a good option for touch-ups throughout the day or for travelling though, as long as you don't mind taking a little more time with your blending. The only brush I haven't found much use for is the Precision Foundation brush. I image this could work well for difficult to reach spots, such as the areas around the nose, but I've never got on too well with flat foundation brushes and just haven't found myself reaching for it.

For just over a tenner for five brushes, this set is really incredible value for money. The brushes aren't all totally mind-blowing, but there are two or three winners in there that make the price more than worth it. And to top it all off, EcoTools are a lovely, natural company with a passion for both "beauty and the environment." Have you ever tried EcoTools brushes?

You can pick this set up for £11.99 from Feel Unique or your local Boots.

  4. My very first brush was from Ecotools, if I remember correctly! I've been put off on purchasing these brushes since their handles seem really short. I dunno, I'm very picky about that kind of thing since I like using brushes with a longer handle. The design on the ferrule is so adorable though, I might just end up getting this set!
