A review: EcoTools Bamboo 6 Piece Brush Set

I bought this brush kit after I left my blusher brush at home when I went to Mark's house. Normally I wouldn't mind but I had his work Christmas party to attend and I only had powder blushers with me. Cue a panicked purchase in Boots... I was so impressed by my purchase that I just had to share them with you! I apologise for the vague terms that I use, I'm not a beauty blogger but when I find something that works, I stick to it and sing its praises to anyone who will listen. Harriet wrote a post recently about her new favourite  make-up brush and that inspired me to share my favourites...



As it was only a small store they only had a couple of brushes to choose from and this 5 piece set worked out to be the cheapest. I hadn't really heard of Eco-Tools as a brand before but the fact that they are cruelty free and eco-conscious is a real bonus for me!

My new favourite blusher brush
 I have always preferred fairly full blusher brushes and I love the fact that this one is slanted as I can apply products much more precisely than before whilst still giving a nice flush of colour. One sweep with this brush and you are done!

 Clumpy eyelashes begone! There is nothing I hate more than clumpy eyelashes and along with the blusher brush, this is the one brush I reach for daily. I only wish the eyebrow brush was a little more rigid, my eyebrows need a firm brush to be tamed!  

Eyeliner brush
Concealer brush
Eyeshadow brush
I am ashamed to say that I haven't actually used the other 3 brushes from the set as I don't actually know how to use them! I have always been a fan of applying my make-up with my [clean] hands and so the other brushes seem a bit pointless to me but I would love to hear your recommendations on how to use them or any YouTube gurus that I simply have to follow! 

Have you got any Eco-Tools brushes? How do you apply your make-up?

I always tend to use my hands as well! One of my friends has some of the Eco Tools brushes and says they're really good.

I mostly use my fingers as its quicker but I have a few ELF Studio brushes which are great and an Eco Tools Foundation Brush which I use to apply cream blusher. I'd definitely consider purchasing more Eco Tools brushes as they're not too expensive and I like the ethical credentials. x

I do think I still prefer to fingers to put on quite a lot of my make up but you do need brushes for some things!
Have a nosey at my Youtube page for recommendations- too many to write down! I think you would particularly like essiebutton , aushnakilops, gemsmaquillage and Lisa Elridge's videos.

I've heard of this range of brushes before and I've always wanted to try them. They look much better than the set of brushes that I recently purchased. There is nothing quite like a good set of brushes.
