Ecotools 6 Piece Eye Brush Kit

It feels like it's been a long time since I had the time avaliable to post anything - things have been pretty hectic. It's Easter for me now though so I'm hoping that things will calm down again (before the real exam preperation starts afterwards) so I'm definitely going to be making the most of this break!

Anyway, Ecotools are a very well known brand. They're renowed for providing high quality, low price brushes that are eco-friendly and not tested on animals. As a bit of a geography nerd, Ecotools really appeal to me. The set contains 5 brushes and a travel case. All the brushes contain bamboo handles and recycled aluminium ferrules. This brush kit costs £14.99.

This set is tiny, and perfect for travelling. The handles on the brushes are small, but they are comfortable to use. The brushes have little notes on how to use them on the handles, which is a nice touch, even though I don't use all of them as recommended.

Blend - This brush is definitely the largest of all the brushes. It's not one to be used for more precise application, but I use it to apply colour all over the lid and sometimes for blending. It applies a rather sheer coat of colour on the lid. 

Crease - This brush is too large to use in my crease area, but I use it on my outer V.

Highlight - This is a fluffy round brush. I use it for blending in the crease area along with highlighting. 

Shade - I use this for more precise application. It's very small, I would like it to a bit bigger. 

Smudge - I use this for applying shadow on my lower lash-line, or for smudging eyeliner. 

Overall I love this little set, and it's definitely going in my suitcase when I next go away. I've washed these brushes twice so far and haven't yet experienced any shedding or change in the quality of the brushes. They're also very soft. The little case is excellent if you travel a lot. This is a really nice little set, it costs £14.99. 

Have you tried any of the Ecotools brushes? What did you think? 

Disclosure: I bought these brushes myself.
