Ecotools Six Piece Essential Eye Set Review

Ecotools is not that popular a brand in Malaysia simply due to the fact that it is not widely available, however, they aren’t as elusive as I am making them out to be. I love their concept due to their reverence for the environment and being 100% cruelty-free. They do have a website at https://www.ecotools.com/. Let’s take a look at their six piece essential eye brush set.

Pictures!

 

I know I know, where's the sixth??? Uh huh! It's the bag! A travel size makeup bag! :D

I think there's something very beautiful about natural wood colour and grains.

To me, there’s something very beautiful about natural wood colour and wood grain pattern. The Ecotools wording is supposedly burned onto the handle. There is also the name of each brush (which has faded off mine).

 

This is the Large Eye brush. It is also the largest brush in the set.

This is the Angled Crease brush. It is the second largest brush. According to the instructions it is to add definition to the crease of the eye.

Highlighting. This is more loosely packed and instead of its prescribed use I like using it to blend eyeshadows.

Description;

Bristles: Synthetic taklon (cruelty free bristles; taklon is most commonly used for making soft brushes). Each brush bristle shape and use have been described under each picture. The brushes are travel size (I’ll add a comparison picture below).

Ferrule: Aluminum, recycled.

Handle: Bamboo (it is an environmentally friendly source of material).

Price: MYR 70 (approximately USD 18) but there are possibilities of promotions and discounts.

Where to buy: SHINS outlets nationwide and they also have a website where you could order online at http://www.shins.my/. SHINS is also available in Sarawak, East Malaysia.

 

Comparison with full sized brushes.

Pros:

They are environmentally friendly AND cruelty-free (that’s the scientist in me talking 😛 ).

Extremely sturdy. I have used, washed and cleansed these brushes very often!

Travel-friendly.

Affordable.

Almost no shedding!

 

Cons:

Not all the brushes are soft.  The smaller ones tend to feel a little scratchy on the eyelids.

The shorter handles can be an issue.

 

Ratings:

8/10

I love them although I don’t use each brush for their intent purposes. They are also a YouTube fave. I got them for less than MYR 50 (approximately USD 13 at the time of the post) which makes each brush less than MYR 10.

 

PS: I decided to include MYR to USD conversion but it does depend on the rate of conversion during the time each entry is posted.
