Ecotools Powder Brush

I love ecotools as a company and I love their brushes. This brush I've had for over year. I haven't really used it much because I rarely use any type of powder. But now that I do, I can give an accurate review of this brush.

Ecotools Says::
Ideal for applying powder and setting makeup

       Soft, cruelty-free bristles
          Natural ; recycled materials

This earth-friendly powder brush provides a smooth, soft finish and sets your makeup. And, it shows respect for the planet:
                         Bamboo handle has a low impact on the earth’s resources as it is a highly sustainable plant.
                      Synthetic taklon bristles are 100% cruelty free.
                    Sleek ferrule is made from recycled aluminum

This brush is SOOOOFFFFFFFFFFFTTTTTTTTTTTT. And it stays soft after repeat washings. But for me there is a BIG problem with this brush. It is not dense enough, making it extremely hard to completely blend /buff anything into my face. This brush could be perfect if you are using a powder that blends into the face without much effort. Because of this I always end up using my blush brush.

I love this company though and how earth friendly it is. Everything is made from easily replaceable materials. And no animals were harmed in the making of these brushes.

I'm thinking about buying the  retractable kabuki because I hear it's much better. I shall see. Thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend.
