[Product Review] EcoTools (Earth Friendly Beauty) Limited Edition Beautiful Expressions Kabuki Set

Hey Beautifuls!
I wanted to bring you this review for a long time now, since of course this set is limited edition or says EcoTools LOL ( ^ ^ ) 
I’ve had this kabuki set for a little less than a year, and it’s still in stores to buy and on the EcoTools website. But that’s okay since, I’m sure some of you want to get your hands on this set before it officially goes bye-bye.

Description from ECOTOOLS.COM: Create custom coverage with four different kabuki heads, providing multiple brush functionality for a total face makeover. The set is designed to conceal your imperfections, bronze for a sun-kissed glow, contour your cheeks, or buff on the perfect powder for an all over flawless face.
Price: $14.99 USD

My Opinion/Review: I honestly wanted this limited edition set to come with a case of some sort. I think it would have completed the “limited edition” vibe.
Bristles?
The bristles are made out of cruelty-free super soft taklon. 
Even washing the kabukis several times never affected the quality and softness of the bristles. While cleaning or using the brushes, I never seen a single bristle fallout out or loosen. I also have to point out that these kabukis are really easy to clean and quite fast drying compared to any other kabuki or big headed brush in general.
Like other synthetic bristles, it does a good job of not absorbing product. So less product waste.
Ferrule?
As you can see these kabukis are all ferrule with no handle.
The ferrule is made out of recycle aluminum, with a really cute print, different on each ferrule. It’s nice that each one has it own design and color to better identify which is which. The only thing I would add to these is the actual name of the brush printed on the ferrule somewhere.
Conceal Kabuki
Because of the tightly formed bunched bristles wherever you apply that said product the color will be concentrated on that area. So it’s great at getting the concealing/coverage down, but need more effort into blending the product out. Specifically with liquid concealer or liquid foundation.
Bronze Kabuki
I use this kabuki with blush. I find the shape of the kabuki really suits how I apply my blush on my cheeks. I don’t use this kabuki with bronzer though, just because the bristles are too wide for my liking.
Contour Kabuki
Definitely a great contour brush! The bristles are just perfectly shaped to get a defined yet soft contour. I also use this kabuki for my bronzer.
Buff Kabuki
An awesome kabuki for your base makeup, whether it is a powder or liquid foundation, it does a great job of delivering coverage and blends it out nicely. Just a word of caution, don’t over buff you just might buff that product off.
Other?
I’ve used each kabuki with mineral, loose, pressed, cream and liquid products. To my evaluation each one does great with mineral, loose, and pressed products. Virtually anything with a powder like consistency, the kabukis does best with. Unfortunately none of these do very well with cream products and the bronze and contour kabukis don’t work well with liquid either. Although, conceal and buff kabukis are awesome with liquid products. However is takes more work on the conceal kabuki to blend out the product to get a smooth consistency.
Bottom Line … I love this set! These kabukis are small and great to throw in your makeup bag for touch ups later. If you are one to normally use mineral, loose, or even pressed powder, this is a set is certainly calling you!

OVERALL SCORE = ★★★★☆

Hope You Enjoyed This Entry. Till Next Time!
