EcoTools Smokey Eye Essential Brush Set Review

I was gifted this EcoTools Six Piece Smokey Eye Essential Set and decided to share my thoughts. I'm curious to try out more items from this brand, as I've recently learned more about them. I'm happy that the that the brand is entirely eco-friendly and that the products are sustainable and some are even made from recycled materials. For example, the brush handles on the set I am showing you today is made entirely out of renewable bamboo!

The brush set contains six different brushes and a mini cosmetic bag. The brushes consist of a large shadow brush, an angled crease brush, a petite shading brush, a liner smudge brush and an eyeliner brush. What I love about the brushes is that they're labelled, making it perfect for beginners. 

From top to bottom: large shadow brush, angled crease brush, petite shading brush, liner smudge brush and eyeliner brush.

A large shadow brush is typically used to apply shadow onto the lid and blend out. The angled crease brush aids in defining, really making your eyes pop by adding drama and depth. The petite eye shading brush is useful for adding an additional colour for some more dimension. The liner smudge brush helps to enhance the smokey effect that the eyeliner brush produces when adding definition along the lash line.

As previously mentioned, the set does come with a brush bag which can double up as a cosmetic bag. It's compact and fits the brushes in neatly with loads of extra space.

The bristles on the brushes are oh-so-soft and pick up product quite well. They blend easily, are easy to use and are made of high quality materials for an affordable price of only €13.95, which Dutch citizens or expats can purchase at BoozyShop

So far, I am loving this set and highly recommend it to those wishing to buy a new brush set. Again, it's beginner friendly and super easy to use and the quality of the products, which are made of synthetic materials and recycled aluminum, are incredibly high quality! A good way to take care of your brushes is to store them upside down after washing them. This is so the water doesn't run down and loosen the glue and prevents bristles from falling out.

What did you think of this post? Are you in favour of trying out sustainable or ecofriendly beauty, or do you own any products from EcoTools? Let me know in the comments!
