This particular set of brushes are no more available but they do have similar ones derived from the same materials. This review serves as a testament to how good these brushes are because I have had them since 2014.
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.
In this updated review I am attaching some of the older pictures because there are some comparisons to be made. And the bag that the brushes came in, I gave to my mother.
I also have pictures of the bristles up close.
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 (price is irrelevant for this post, but at the moment, the price for a set similar to this is MYR 99 at Shins).
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.
The comparatively similar one I could find on Shins is this one:-
A few comparison shots.
The engraving on the handles have faded off.
Comparison with a normal size brush.
They are environmentally friendly AND cruelty-free.
Extremely sturdy. I have used, washed and cleansed these brushes very often!
Almost no shedding!
At just about 4 years old, the brushes are going strong! So I am bumping up the rating.
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.
I love them although I don’t use each brush for their intent purposes. They are also a YouTube fave.
