Today I will be reviewing Eco Tools The Lovely Looks Five Piece Brush Set – a perfect set for all makeup brushes. Be it highlights, concealing, eye shadows, blushes or bronzing, we need good brushes to finish our look. Choose any shade, stroke or any occasion, our makeup kits are never complete without cosmetics and its brushes. Whichever product I purchase, I silently look for an option to take it along wherever I travel. And here it is, this cute, little and petite brushes are off to go with me any time. Read on to find more.
Well, I haven’t purchased make up brushes earlier apart from a powder brush and so I have chosen this as It looks good for beginners. There were so many options in my local drugstore that it made me confused and I returned without purchasing any. The next day, I visited again and I happen to spot the Eco Tools brush collection and I really liked this one. Among all, this brand provided the best bunch of makeup brushes in one slot. Since Eco Tools are quite known for its quality, I was instantly attracted and I readily purchased.
The brushes are made with soft cruelty-free bristles beautifully embellished with stunning blue hues bamboo handles. The brush set comprises of 5 makeup brushes –

The brushes are neatly packed in a mustard yellow box which is made of EVA material. It basically opens like a book revealing fixed and fit makeup brushes. The backside of the set gives a breakdown of each brush with detailed description. The adjacent side of the brushes provides a quick guideline about day and night makeup.

So, how are these –
This is a splendid chic set of makeup brushes and makes it easy to settle in my makeup bag! These brushes are very soft, dense and very useful. Though they are small in size, they are ideal to apply makeup; however, for many of you, the larger three of the five brushes (powder, foundation and concealer) may not be fine as they are not the ideal size for their intended purposes. But, my tiny hands didn’t complain at all. These brushes will work together to perfect the final look with cream, liquid or powder makeup.
For the better health and hygiene of the brushes, it’s better to wash them once in a week (if you use them daily); simply run the bristles under warm running water and wash with a gentle shampoo or a conditioner avoiding ferrules and handles. Use a cloth to absorb excess water and let it dry.
Here is the quick analysis of all the brushes –
Foundation Brush –
The bristles are pointed-tip for precise coverage for the use of foundation. I use this for highlighting purposes and since I don’t use foundation, I use this brush for applying BB or CC cream, and it certainly works well;
Eye shadow Brush –
The tiny tapered bristles of eye shadow brush are sleek and perfect to apply and blend eye shadows. Now, the good part is this can be conveniently used as a concealer brush which is rightly useful for liquid concealer.
Flat Eyeliner Brush –
Now, this has to be used only when applying thick eyeliner. It will definitely work well when opting for dramatic eye makeup.
Angled brush –
Whoa! This is my favourite part. The angled brush is equipped with duo-fibre and is perfect to sweep the blush as well as to contour. It is so convenient to use; its hassle free, easy and quick! A couple of strokes and you are done!
Powder Brush –
I usually prefer bigger brush for face powder but it’s alright as the quality is excellent and extremely soft to the skin. This brush is designed to give a smooth finish by simply buffing ones face in a circular motion. I have used this for blending my bronzing too, which gave a fine finish.
This is my first brush set and I am delighted with its finest results. Overall, the product is artistically very pleasing. This set is definitely recommended for beginners and is of great value for money.
So overall, good value for money! These brushes work together to give a perfect look for the shutter bugs suiting mineral, liquid and powder makeup.
