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.
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 (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.
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!
Almost no shedding!
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. 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.
