Hey guys! Today I have another brush review for you, featuring EcoTools Retractable Kabuki Brush. I purchased this brush over a year ago and now I am ready to share on you my thoughts!
The brush is made out of synthetic hairs and is very soft; I have not any irritation on my skin. However, I have noticed a bit of shedding with the brush hairs when I both apply makeup and when I wash the brush.
The packaging of this brush is both a hit and a miss. I love how sleek this product is and how easy the outside is too clean! Another pro of this packaging is there is an inner compartment that helps maintain the shape of the brush when you first remove the lid from it. However, I do not like how the lid doesn't lock on the brush, I would've preferred it if there was a mechanism to lock the brush to secure it. This brush is durable, I have dropped it several times and there has not been a dent in packaging!
The brush shape is not what I would expect for a Kabuki brush, it is very dense and making it very difficult to blend out products. While this product is great for applying foundation (liquid or powder) all over the face, applying blush or bronzer is difficult because this brush has a tendency to pick up too much product and not blend it out thoroughly.
Do I Use This Brush Often?:
To be honest, no. This brush isn't something I reach for, even when I am traveling. While it has its perks, I have better brushes in my collection to use to touch up and travel with (Elf Studio Complexion Brush, I'm looking at you ).
If I could go back in time, I wouldn't buy this brush. I initially purchased it thinking it would be a great brush to travel with, where I can use the brush to apply foundation, powder, blush, bronzer, highlighter, as well as blending and harsh lines that I have. However, I find myself relying on other brushes first, and would rather use dirty brushes that this brush (yes, I did just say that). If you are looking for a dense brush to apply your powder, I would recommend this to you. If you are looking for an all-in-one brush, I'd say skip.
I hope you guys are had a wonderful mother's day. Today, we pampered my mom twice! For lunch today, the family went to PDQ, a chicken restaurant where mothers ate for free on Mother's Day! Later on in the evening, we pampered my mom with foods you saw above! Filet Minion, Grilled Corn, Caesar Salad, and last but not least 30th Anniversary Cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory was served! I wish I can claim that I cooked the Filet Minion, but alas, that was my wonderful father who can cook steaks better than restaurants (thanks to his experience working at restaurants during college).
