Askmewhats Reviews: Ecotools Bamboo Eyeliner Brush

Hello everyone!!!

I'm alive and kicking because I had a good sleep yesterday! :) I am happy because I don't have work on Monday!!! I did say that right? But I want to shout it to the world!!! NO WORK ON A MONDAY!!!! Weeeeeeee!!!! lol

Before I go ballistic on a no work on Monday mode... let me proceed with my usual product reviews! :)

I have 2 reviews for Ecotools, one for the 5pcs brush set and the other one for the eyeliner brush. I will start with the Ecotools Eyeliner Brush because I am taking more time to "get to know" my 5-pcs brush set :)

This is what I got from MakeupMix Shop.

Askmewhats says ---

Pros
  • Each product are packed well! So professional looking!
  • Earth friendly, made of natural and recycled material!
  • 1% of the sales proceed goes to the Planet :)
  • brush is perfectly shaped, not too thin or thick, just the right shape and size to line your eyes!
  • handle length is perfect
  • no shedding

Cons
  • not available locally

Overall

I love this brush! I did say my HG brush is my Smashbox Eyeliner brush, but my smashbox isn't angled. The Ecotools Bamboo eyeliner brush is angled perfectly and applying gel liner or e/s as liner is a breeze. So easy to use, it's definitely fool proof!

Seeing "Made In China" could make people react, but this is definitely made with great quality control. I love how it looks so expensive but the price is so affordable. Recently a reader left a comment on my cbox asking for a great gel liner brush, I would say this is the best especially if you're just starting to apply gel liner!

I love this brush!

Tips
  • wipe or wash your brushes gently
  • if you use this brush for gel liners, clean the brush hairs with oil first before you proceed with regular brush cleanser.
  • you can also use this brush to apply liner using your eyeshadows!
Will I repurchase?

If needed, YES!

Where can I purchase and how much?

At the Makeup Mix Shop for $3.75 (approx Php 185.00)

Here's a close up shot of the brush

And here's why I love

Hope this review helps for people out there
who's looking for a great eyeliner brush!
You can't go wrong with the price too!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Stay Happy!!!!

  2. ecotools are super intriguing! I've been hearing raves after raves about them and now that I know that they have liner brush I want my own as well! :p the angle looks like it is easy to glide on the eyes. (coz my eyes are puffy i can't make a nice line)
    thank you for the review!

  7. That really sounds like a nice brush! When I put makeup at all I always use a brush rather than a sponge tip... it just seems to be easier to apply.
    I'm bookmarking the nail polish site you gave me. That is a great price for nail polish!!!

  8. lucky! i wish i had no work on monday!

    i love this brush more than the mac eyeliner brush cuz it's thicker and more fool proof for me.

  9. I like eyeliners that are angled too!, sometimes I'm soo busy, those are easiers than the pointed brushes.!

    thanks for the review!

  11. Paint Me Gorgeous! So far, I haven't read any bad things about ecotools YET! :)

    Gia, if you plan to purchase, may try to purchase from friends who's in the US :) And it really works! I love it more than my HG Smahsbox now! :)

  13. Abby, yes! :) Goodluck shopping and do let me know what you purchased in the future! :)

    Lily, sorry, this is the first time for me to have NO WORK on a monday, I don't follow Philippine holidays but Chinese holidays, I'm glad for the first time, the PHilippine holiday this coming Monday coincides with the China Holiday! At least both the hubby and I can enjoy no work on a manic monday! :) Thanks for sharing about loving this brush more than MAC, I am actually thinking of purchasing the one from MAC!

    Mary,no problem! It's my pleasure to do this review!

    miemiemie, Yeah, i heard about Ecotools being hard to find! Gosh, if they stock down here in the Philippines, I'm sure sales will go way HIGH! You know how kikay naman Filipinos are! :)

  15. Hi Nikki! RE: HIP Jelly Balm... if you have very, very dry lips, I would suggest you to get Rosebud Salve over the Jelly Balm, for a similar textured product. I think the Rosebud Salve works better, and it's like 3x the amount for 1/2 the price. The HIP Jelly Balm is less goopy, but I don't think that's worth the price difference.

    Alternatively, if you're like me and have ridiculously dry lips (like, nothing lasts all night on your lips and you wake up with dry, flaky lips every morning) I highly, highly recommend Physicians Formula Plump Potion. I know it sounds really weird, but it really is the most moisturizing lip treatment I've ever tried. Once you let it set for a couple hours or so, you can rub your fingers over your lips, and that allows you to rub off all the dead skin without any tearing or bleeding. I was amazed. Then, the first time I wore it to bed, I almost cried upon waking up the next morning, because my lips were still soft and protected - something that hadn't happened in at least 7 years. I drink a lot of water everyday, but still had issues with dry lips. PF's Plump Potion allows me to wear lipstick during the day now. Truly life-changing for me. I introduced a friend who has really dry lips to it too and she loves this gloss as well. The only downside is that it is really sticky... so I usually only wear it to bed.

    HTH

  24. wished they did ecotools over here :( the brush looks good, a good knock-off for the MAC 266!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. NicNic, the good ones are so hard to find!!!! Wow ! knock off for MAC266, I don't need to purchase the MAC one !:D

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't have this brush, but I have a few of the others, and they're fantastic. So I'm sure this would be good too :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is one of my favorite eyeliner! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Tine, they are really good I love it!

    Ahleessa, good quality !!! :) Thanks for letting me know you love yours too!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. This looks so good!!! I have a MAC 266 brush that is very similar, but I've had it for so long I've been lagging on getting a new one (I use it for both brows and liner). This looks like a good (and cheap) alternative- I'll definitely have to be on the lookout for it!

    ReplyDelete
  30. i use ecotools too, they're great quality brushes. i love it!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Tanya, well..get this one! :) it's way cheaper!! Saves you bucks!
