ecoTOOLS are one of my favourite high street brush brands – not only are they great value for money, but they’re also eco-friendly and completely cruelty-free. For spring, ecoTOOLS are launching four brand new brushes to their range, which together make up the ‘complexion collection’.
The name is slightly misleading as these are all sold separately rather than as a set, but together they form a fantastic group of brushes that will see you through pretty much any kind of base makeup, whether it’s foundation, powder, concealer and even a bit of highlighting/contouring.
In the range are:
Correcting Concealer Brush – for liquid/powder concealers and a precise application
Eye Perfecting Brush – perfectly shaped to use around the eye area to cover dark circles
Skin Perfecting Brush – for liquid products such as bb/cc creams and foundations
Mattifying Finish Brush – loose powders, bronzers
My favourite out of the four has to be the Skin Perfecting Brush which is aimed at giving a flawless finish with bb/cc creams but I find it works just as well with a normal liquid foundation. The bristles in this brush are quite dense, making it easy to get the desired coverage using quite a small amount of product. Because of its size, it also fits nicely into the areas around your nose which I sometimes find a bit tricky with a regular shaped foundation brush and if you only pick one brush from the collection, this would be my top choice.
The Mattifying Finish Brush is lovely and soft and just the right size – not too big and not too small (someone tell Goldilocks I’m stealing her lines. Ahem.). It picks up a decent amount of product without overloading and will work well with most kinds of loose and pressed powders.
If you suffer from blemishes, then the Correcting Concealer Brush is definitely going to be your new brush BFF. This small brush might look unassuming, but it works amazingly well at covering spots and blemishes – just a small amount of product dabbed on with the brush will cover and conceal most things, and the dense nature of the bristles means you won’t need to use loads of product to achieve the desired affect.
While the Complexion Collection might feature the usual bamboo handles and good quality synthetic bristles, I love the new designs they’ve used on the brush ferules. It adds something a little different to a range which might look a *tiny* bit bland otherwise and for me it makes them look so much more appealing.
The Complexion Collection launches into Boots in April and will range in price from £4.99 to £7.99.
