    EcoTools Bamboo Powder Brush

    Ecotools Powder Brush

    Despite all the good reviews I have to say that I do not like this brush at all. I am glad that it is cheap because as soon as I got it, it started to shed. Despite this I tried to use the product. As I way hairs were falling out into my powder. I tried this on a pressed powder and on a loosed powder it did not work on both accounts. It gave a very sheer wash of color and did not do anything to add extra coverage, even on a powder foundation. When I did get coverage it was splotchy and always looked caked on. I also think that they dyed this brush with some kind of coloring because I used it on the same products which I have been using for a while and I broke out. When my friend came to my house I gave this brush to her to see if she could have any look with it. She broke out too and said that she could not get good coverage with it either. She said that she also tried it with different primers and layered under and over bronzer and could not get even coverage at all. She also tried o use this with a liquid formula. That was why I gave this three stars. With a liquid formula, although the brush needs to be cleaned more often, it provides very good matte coverage. I don’t know why but t is good a t reducing shine. Is you choose do use this brush for blush or bronzer expect an extremely natural and sheer wash of color. You could use this for eye shadow even. This brush when you tap or swirl it makes pressed powder crumble and give a lot of fall out I suggest a sweeping motion. This brush has a nicely shaped handle but is a little bit too short for my hand to hold it comfortably. I think that part of the reason why it provides such little coverage is because of how much give it has and how densely the fibers are packed. It is not packed tightly at all and has so much give that with barely touching it I could flatten it out. The hairs are very soft and if you are giving this brush to say a twelve year old so that they can try out makeup I would recommend this because that way I know that they would be able to put such a small amount of color onto the brush that there is no way they could look like a clown. I would be cautious is this gave them a rash or something though. Another brush is that believe it is cruelty to animals free. I always try to purchase products that are cruelty free because of such horrible testing they do on animals. There are some brushes that I do like from eco tools like there concealer brush with is the perfect size or their eye shading brush, which blend eye shadows beautifully while being small enough to reach into the corners of your eye area.

    Although this is ne of the best eye shadows that I have bought I have tried better ones on in the Store. A plus is that they have tins and tons of shades. Many of them layer and blend together very nicely. Even without a primer these do not crease, flake, or smudge. On some of the glitter shades there could be a substantial mount of fallout onto your eyes. My favorite are the matte shades because they do not crease on me like most mate shades do. My favorite is their matte black. I recommend using this product with a primer because although it is rather long-lasting you get a much better color [ay-off if you use a primer like urban decay primer. You can use your finger or a sponge tip applicator for this but a brush will cause some crumbles if you pat the eyeshade. One of the only really bad things I can say is that for a single eye shadow these are pretty expensive and there are other alternatives which are cheaper.

  • Almay Intense i-Color Shimmer-i kit

    I love these so much they stay in place and have amazing colors. They have great staying power. Do not get into eye because they will irritate.

    The colors are great and so is the pigmentation. It does not crease but it does where off fairly quickly you can make it last longer with a primer. A-list has really great shades including a matte black.

  • N.Y.C. New York Color Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder

    This bronzer is fairly easy to blend out and is highly pigmented. I is matte, which is great. It did not make my sensitive skin breakout, but there is only one shade which is waaay too dark and orange for my fair skin.
