5 Pc Ecotools Bamboo Makeup Brushes Review and photos



Ecotools Bamboo makeup Brushes

Hi Everyone!!

Today, I will review Eco tools brushes which I purchased from buyincoins. Even before staring the review I should say that I like these brushes a lot as they are very “Paisa vasool” (worth every penny spent) Types. It’s been more than a month I think since I have been using them. I have heard a lot about these Eco tools bamboo brushes and that is why I thought of buying them.
Price:  $3.46 around 187 INR (way too cheap, isn’t it!! :D)

Ecotools Bamboo brushes
About the brushes: Brand new and high quality Ecotool brushes with Bamboo 4 pieces makeup brush set. Bamboo handle has a low impact on the earth's resources as it is a highly sustainable plant. Sleek ferrule is made from recycled aluminum. Cosmetic brush roll is made from natural cotton and hemp. Reusable storage pouch. No animals have been harmed or maimed for of making these brushes. Easy and convenient to carry.

Set includes: Mineral Powder Brush, Concealer Brush, Eye Shading Brush, Body Kabuki and with a pouch bag.

Ecotools Bamboo brushes

My Experience: These Eco tools bamboo brushes come in a zip lock pouch and with 4 brushes and a cotton pouch to carry them which makes it travel friendly and protects the brushes from any damage. I liked the cotton pouch a lot as its soft and can be easily kept inside the clutch too along with some other necessary items. Dimension wise this bag would be around 5 by 4 inches approximately. You may see the picture below:

Now, let’s talk about the brushes;
Eco tool Mineral Powder Brush: This brush is around 5.5 inches length wise and with soft bristles, meant to put mineral powder.  I like using it for applying powder to set my makeup. Bristles are decently dense, could have been denser but to apply powder that is fine, moreover, so far I have not seen it shedding a single strand, even after washing it a couple of times. Bamboo handle is strong and light weight too.

Eco tool Eye shading brush: This brush is like a regular eye shadow applicator brush with flat tapered bristles and with a flat bamboo piece inside between the brush so as to make it more easier to pat the eye shadow, but I have seen this for the first time in a brush.:D This brush is around 4 inches tall and picks up the product very well. I have not washes it yet though have used it once so can’t say about shedding but even if I try to pinch out the bristles then also there is none.

Eco tool Small kabuki: I just love this brush, it looks so very cute!!! Its base is made up of aluminum and stands around 2.5 inches tall along with the bristles. It’s so small, that it can fit anywhere perfectly. Bristles are very soft as quality of the bristles is the same for all the brushes. I use it to apply powder or to set concealer and it can also be used as a blush brush. I have washed it once and it doesn’t shed at all.

Eco tool bamboo Concealer brush: Now, here comes my favorite of the lot! It is this concealer brush. it’s also around the same height has the eye shader brush and looks more like a fluffy brush which is very dense and with soft bristles. I like it as it blends concealer so nicely and evenly that when in hurry it can be extremely helpful and time saving! Just love it!!!


These brushes are cruelty free and no shedding. They are eco friendly and made up of synthetic and recycled material. 

I have used the zip lock pouch to keep some of my pencil liners.:D


Pros and cons of Eco tools bamboo brushes

Pros:
  • Value for money and very affordable.
  • Shipping will not pinch as they are available at buyincoins.com which is free shipping worldwide site.
  • Their bristles are synthetic that does not shed and are very soft.
  • The cotton and hemp pouch is great and handy to keep the brushes and carry them.
  • These bushes are cruelty free and made up with recycled aluminum ferrules and bamboo.
  • Contains 4 brushes for different needs
  • Concealer brush is excellent when it comes to applying concealer flawlessly.
  • Other brushes are very good to and does a good job and also justifies their price.
Cons:
  • I wish the pouch could have been a little longer as the longest mineral powder brush had to be kept diagonally to fit inside the pouch.
  • The powder brush could have been a little denser.
  • Other than that I could not find any cons or drawbacks with this set of eco tools. 
Rating: 4 out of 5

My Take: I will recommend these to all those of you who are looking for some quality brushes at affordable price. Rest depends on your requirements and needs. Honestly at the price they are a must try.

    3. Ohh.. Did you try contacting them. As I have placed another order couple of days ago too with tracking no.
      In future, you may try Ebay.com, as most of the products shown on BIC there are also available on ebay.com.
      I hope that you get your products soon, dear!

      but if the order is above $30 then, no need to pay $1.90, tracking no will be free too.

  27. I had seen your haul post and these were the first ones I looked at when I placed my recent order. I don't use powder makeup (dry skin I have) so I had to pass them. But I so liked the bamboo handle that I did buy one liquid foundation bamboo brush, you saw in my haul post. Very nice review :) Excited about your next order. Do share what you ordered this time :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I love their bamboo handle too, they have a very nice finish and looks classy, they are shorter than the regular brushes, so can be carried easily in the purse too.:)
      I choose that bamboo foundation that you bought then changed it with the chubby foundation, that is great too, in the next haul I will buy one of the brushes that you have bought to stock as at the price, I am very impressed by them. I couldn't find any flaws in that foundation brush.:)
      Will share what i ordered :)

  32. Hi..
    I'm very much a beginner when it comes to makeup and thats why wanted to buy a brush set thats super cheap. I heard of Buyincoins here while reading this review and checked it out. It has a great collection of products, but is the site 100% trustable? It has mixed reviews online?
    Has anyone shopped from there regularly? Help me out please..
