Better Than Most High-End Brushes

Elinor Goleta, CA

Soft, high quality, great for mineral makeup

There are 4 brushes in this set. I love them all. The mineral powder brush and the mini kabuki brush are perfect for flawless application of powdered mineral makeup. I have used both the shadow and concealer brushes to apply eye shadow. They work great too. These brushes are very soft and luxurious feeling. And they are very well constructed. I’ve experienced no shedding.I own a lot of makeup brushes including some very high end professional quality brushes. These brushes have not disappointed. They are so much better than the brushes that are sold by Bare Minerals.

Work well

I use the kabuki brush for mineral foundation.I use the eyeshadow brush for eyeshadow base.They work nicely, though I wish the kabuki brush was more firm!

Environmentally Friendly-Cruelty Free & they work very well!

The name of the brand says it all, and if you care about the environment and animals( as I do), these are the brushes you should choose for your cosmetic application.For myself, these brushes suited my needs perfectly.I also bought other sets from ECOTOOLS. I was not disappointed.I do want to clarify something: For the average woman who uses make up, these products will meet their expectations and then some.Make up artists, due to their line of business, may be pickier about their brushes.I can appreciate that, after all, this is how they make a living.I am NOT saying a make up artist should not buy these brushes;I just know that many have high standards regarding the items they use in their make up tool box, and one true artistry brush by itself could be 3 times or more, the cost of a Ecotool set.(That being said- I am sure out of the selection ECOTOOLS offers, there has to be some brushes that a make up artist would be more than satisfied with.)Side Note: Whether it comes to make up application or working on crafts- I have never been fond of real hair brushes.They can be a disaster when crafting with paint with loose hairs getting stuck in your project.With regards to make up application,brushes that shed hair have always been a turn off for me.Sure, the better quality real hair make up brushes don’t have as much of a shedding problem, but do you want to spend that kind of money PER BRUSH?I think the prices on ECOTOOLS items are reasonable;especially considering how many tools you get in a package.Buying from this company is both a practical and a *feel good* purchase and I will continue to use their products.I only wish more companies cared enough to provide cruelty free brush options.

Great tools!

I bought these at Target after seeing all the great reviews on youtube. They really are soft and do not shed. I decided to also buy the ecotools kabuki brush for my all over mineral foundation. I use the big brush in this set for bronzer and blush. The smaller brushes are great for putting on concealer around your eyes and nose. There’s no streaking at all. I’m going to throw away my Sheercover brushes and use these from now on. I’ve looked around and these are the cheapest brushes I’ve found and they are just as good as any brush you’ll find at Sephora.

Barbra West Creek, NJ

Love these brushes

I bought these for myself. They are very soft, durable, and great for mineral make-up. These brushes apply make-up evenly and do not cause discomfort from repeated strokes like other brushes. My only problem is that they do not fit in their case that comes with the brushes. Great set of brushes besides that!

Aileen Kellogg, MN

Best makeup brushes I’ve ever owned

I have high end like Becca and mid range like MAC. Even some drugstore ones. These have been the best and great for the environment. I just could no longer wipe animal fur across my face without wondering if that animal was harmed.

Allene Anahola, HI

best brushes ever

I’m super picky about make up brushes and these are great. The two eye shadow brushes are perfect. With the fuller one I can sweep shadow across my lid and with the skinny one I can use my shadow as an eyeliner. I threw out a Smashbox brush for this Kabuki brush and never looked back. This one is so much better…hasn’t lost a bristle yet!

Sofia Deltona, FL

This is pretty amazing.

WOW!!! The brushes are soo soft! Please don’t hesitate to buy this. Doesn’t shed, picks up color, SOFT, and just plain amazing. I specially like the blush brush and the kabuki brush!GO BUY IT!!!

Stella Macclenny, FL

Awesome, perfect and Lightweight

You’ll feel twice as good buying these with the soft but firm bristles gliding your makeup effortlessly on your skin. Plus, they’re made of recycled/renewable materials. Oh they’re lightweight too. The only thing I would say is that their “reusable” pouch is more complicated than it needs to be and I could do without the complex packaging altogether. Would buy again, have bought again, will not look elsewhere for brushes again! (Sorry MAC, youuuuure outta there!)

Louisa Wheelock, TX

Great Item

These brushes are so soft and great quality. It blends makeup so easily. I already have another set.I love them so much…. Most important thing- they are cruelty free… i love animals..Must have for makeup loving girls..

Lashonda Astoria, NY

Great set!

Great set of brushes. I like that EcoTools brushes are smaller than other brands. It makes them very easy to handle and control. Great for those just starting out using brushes!

Rosario Fayetteville, PA

EcoTools MINERAL 5pc Make Up Brush Travel Set

These brushes are soooo soft! No bristles have fallen off, unlike those more expensive brushes that fall out the first time I use them. I would recommend these brushes over any other that I have ever tryed.

Kelly Meadville, MS

Beautiful brushes!

I love them! I use a mixture of liquid makeup and mineral makeup. Many of the mineral makeups I have do not come with brushes, and the ones offered by the brand I use are so very expensive. I checked out several different options here on Amazon and decided on these. They came and I have to say I love them. They are super soft and feel like such high quality. The brushes are very full and plump. No cheap plastic feel to them and do not irritate my sensitive skin at all. I do not keep them in the little plastic bag they came in because they don’t really fit very well in it. They are such nice brushes, it would seem a shame to keep them crammed into the case they came in. I would definitely recommend these to anyone.

Louella Chippewa Lake, OH


I bought this as a Christmas gift for my friend and it came on time, was in good condition, and ended up a great gift. The little bag that came with it, I think it was supposed to be to put the brushes in, wasn’t very great though. When I tried to put the brushes in it they barely fit and the bristles would get tangled and bent as a result. I’m still giving this a 5 stars though because the brushes were great and that’s the thing I’m rating right now.

Kristy Exeter, MO

Affordable, quality brush set

Really love these. I’ve tried tons of brushes and always come back to ecotools. They’re mini but not hard to use because of that. They’re very soft and feel high quality, barely shed at all too. This set is a very great deal for the quality you are getting. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a brush set. I’ve paid $30+ for ONE brush from high end brands and the quality is very comparable to these. Why not get the better deal?

Annie Middlebrook, VA


These brushes are great! I made one a lip brush . No bristles ever fall out , I use for powder and eyeshadow

Selena Orange, CA


great brushes; I love them and have the mineral set and also the regular set. They are very soft and do not shed at all.

Lessie Blooming Grove, TX

Great Brushes!

These are amazing! They are so soft and do the job VERY well. I bought the a few years ago. They are GREAT! I have two sets, one for everyday make up, the other for my stage make up. It’s really worth it. I also bought a few of the other brushes . If I need a make up brush, I check to see of EcoTools has the brush I need first. I haven’t been disappointed yet. They are ego friendly of course, which to me isn’t a big deal, I mean sure go green, save energy, but I don’t really stress about it, if its something I don’t plan on throwing away for many years, if ever. So I don’t quiet see that it matters too much. Still, its great that it is. Now, the brushes are the softest I’ve ever seen. My brother borrowed one for a stage play he did in high school. He said he now knew why girls did make up every day, it was really to do a face massage every morning. They are easy to clean. I’m a conservative girl, you don’t buy something new if you already have something that can do the job. I just use my conditioner to clean out the brushes once a week and its’ perfect. They haven’t shredded AT ALL in three years. I use the blush brush for contour, the dark brown topped one, for main eye shadow, the one with white and brown edges as a contour for my eyes and of course the brow and eyelash comb for what they were made for. I LOVE them! Use them everyday. WORTH BUYING! Won’t regret it and you won’t need new ones ANY time soon.

EcoTools – a drugstore underdog

Amidst the sea of rough, scratchy brushes with shedding bristles and cheap handles in the drugstore scene, you’ll find EcoTools. After trying several drugstore varieties I had just about given up on finding a nice set of brushes at a decent price. I’m so glad I gave these a try!The bristles are super soft with just the right amount of flexibility. The brushes themselves are very well made, and the wooden handles are nice and smooth. Since buying my very first set of EcoTools brushes I have purchased several other brushes/sets and have yet to be disappointed. The fact that the brushes are eco friendly is just an added bonus! There is nothing sub-par about these brushes.At this price-point these brushes are definitely worth a try!

Zelda Presto, PA

good set

lately I’ve been loving eco tools brushes a lot! they are inexpensive and super good quality, this set i bought it to keep in my bag for touch ups every now and then but i found myself loving some brushes so much that have a permanent place on my daily makeup holder, the Mineral Powder Brush is very dense and i love it to apply bronzer. the concealer brush is really good for blemishes and the eye shading its a really good blending brush. the baby kabuki i haven’t used that much but is super soft too.

Kristen Niagara, ND


Way better than the Bare Minerals brand brushes that shed like crazy. These are very soft. The small one is a bit hard to hold, but the rest of the brushes are fantastic—and don’t shed!

Penny Bullhead, SD

Some brushes better than others

First off, all of these brushes are soft and well-made. The pouch was a nice added extra but I don’t keep my brushes in it.Kabuki brush: This is my favorite out of the set. It’s small but extremely useful and versatile. I use it for mineral foundation, setting/pressed powder, and for general buffing. Sometimes I’ll even use it to apply powder/cream blush and bronzer. Really awesome product.Powder brush: It’s a nice size, useful, and versatile. I mostly use it for applying blush and bronzer.Concealer brush: This is an okay brush for concealer. It’s soft and blends nicely but it’s less stiff compared to other concealer brushes. You can also use it on your eyes as an eyeshadow brush although it is a little too big and fluffy to pat product on.Eye brush: It’s a bit big and it’s not stiff enough for my taste. However, I do sometimes use it to blend out eyeshadows but it’s still a bit big for purpose as well.It’s a good set if you’re new to makeup and don’t want to spend a lot of money but not all of the brushes are amazing.

Bridgette Charmco, WV

Great price and good quality

These brushes aren’t anything special but they do the job. I’ve used them for well over 2 years and they’re still full of bristles and soft.

Sondra Whitestone, NY

long lasting

EcoTools seems to make awesome brushes.. They are soft and last a long time even after you wash them. Highly recommended.

Simone Shawnee, OH

Nice brushes

These brushes are not quite as soft as some of the really high end brushes, but then again they are not nearly as expensive either. They are superb for the price. They were not prickly or stiff and had fairly even coverage. If you are looking for some basic nice grade brushes these are a great choice. They work really well with mineral makeups, concealers and pigments.

Nora Dixie, GA

Nice pouch, decent brushes

These brushes aren’t anything to write home about, but they work alright and the included pouch was a nice addition. For the price, they are about what you would expect to get in quality.

Karin Hoffman, IL


Soft and perfect. What’s more to say? Don’t spend $20-30 when you can get these for a fraction of the price. Just as good as Mac — better because you save money!Love the case. Again, perfection!

Minerva Deerwood, MN

Awesome brushes!

Savannah Villa Ridge, IL
