I have combination skin, so I constantly take mattifying tissues or a powder with me to refresh my makeup throughout the day.
So to use a powder, I needed a good travel-size brush, as I’m not into sponges or puffs. After testing a few drugstore brushes, I opted for the retractable brush from EcoTools. I appreciate this brand, so I didn’t think long before purchasing it…
The brush was housed in a plastic case with the name on the front and the directions to use on the back.
Also, it has a picture that shows you how to apply this or that product to your face.
The case is made of lightweight metal and soft taklon bristles that are moderately flexible. Not a single bristle fell out after use.
The only thing is that the some bristles may turn up when retracting the brush, but it doesn’t influence the performance.
The brush is medium-thick and gives a medium coverage. It picks up the product and blends it out very well.
This kabuki brush is meant for applying mineral powder, blush and bronzer.
How I apply a mineral powder:
1. I pick up the powder using circular motions.
Note! The minerals should be inside the brush and not only on its surface. Otherwise you get too many of them on your face when you touch the brush in the first go. The layer will not be even.
2. Then I remove the excess amount, turn the brush upside down and tap it at some surface to spread out minerals in the bristles.
3. With circular motions, I apply the powder to my face moving to the center from top to bottom.
The brush is easy to wash and it dries out in 5-6 hours. I don’t have any issues with the case.
The brush is compact and perfect for use on the go.
