Pros: a case included, compact travel-friendly set, nice design, soft bristles, the bristles don't shed, versatile

Hi everyone!

I’d like to tell you about a travel brush set that would be very handy on the go. Moreover, it’s a nice present for your friend. Yes, it doesn’t have everything you need for your makeup, but it does have every brush you need for a quick and dramatic smokey eye or a daily makeup, though.

Ecotools always makes me happy with their brush sets, especially when they launch something new on the Christmas Eve.

This year it’s no exception and the brand produced a few options with different brushes. One of them is Soft Smokey Eye Brush Set.

Now I’d like to tell you why I highly recommend you try this set.

The design is awesome. The brushes come in a beige box with a golden ornament. The box is made of thick cardboard and has a transparent part in the middle on the front side.

On the back you can find all the necessary information about this set. Moreover, you can see the picture that shows how to apply the eyeshadow and which brush to use.

The brushes and the case are placed on a paper layer, which holds the brushes in position. Whenever you want to pick up this or that brush, you have to apply some pressure to do it, because the packaging is very sturdy.

In general, the set looks very decent and stylish. The combination of ivory and gold is great.

The set has 4 brushes for your eye makeup and a case to store them.

All the brushes are made of eco-friendly materials:

Bristles: the bristles are of nylon fiber, which is a popular material for synthetic brushes. The bristles are flexible and soft. They are easy to wash, plus they dry out very quickly. But the most important thing is that the brushes are hypoallergenic.

The ferrule is made of aluminium. The material is rust-resistant.

The handle is made of bamboo, which is recycled. The material is sturdy.


The use of every brush?

Controlled Setting Brush

It’s a fluffy, petal-shaped brush. The flat shape enables you to control the amount of the powder or highlighter applied… The brush is not tightly-packed, which is good for applying thin layers of dry and creamy textures.

I use it for applying a glowing powder to my eyeball or around my eyes.

Moreover, it can be used for applying a highlighter.

Large Shadow Brush

It’s a flat brush with tightly packed bristles. It works well both with dry and creamy formulas. Its main purpose is to add the shade to the lid, but you can also use it for blending out the crease.

I use it for creamy or dry eyeshadows or for wax products.

Defined Crease Brush

It’s a rounded brush, which blends out both creamy and dry shades very well due to its shape. It’s suitable for any size of the eyelid. It’s not so tightly packed like any other brush for this purpose.

I use it as intended.

Precision Blending Brush

It’s a classic brush, which is tightly packed and has short bristles. It reminds me of a sponge. It blends out wax and gel liners and creamy and dry eyeshadows well.

Due to its bristles, even the driest and hardest to pick up eyeshadow will perform perfectly on your eyelids.

I use it for blending out the eyeliners and eye pencils or for blending the color on the lower eyelid. Moreover, I emphasize the corners of my eyes with it.

As a result, I get this simple but eye-catching makeup with the brushes of this set.

The golden brush holder is made of recycled aluminium. It closes tightly and protects the brushes when transferring.

It’s quite capacious, so you can use a flat brush for concealer or add any other mini-size brushes for the lipsticks. So, you get a perfect set with all the brushes required for your trip.

This brush set is definitely worth a look if you:

  • look for a eye brush set for an affordable price

  • want to make a gift for you friend, mom or sister.

  • carry around the brushes in a makeup bag.

  • travel a lot.
