This brush caught my eye in Boots because it is designed for use with BB creams and CC creams. I have been getting into BB cream recently so I thought this sounded ideal as it means you don’t transfer oil from your hands to your face when applying your makeup.
The brush is supposedly an ideal angled shape for smooth application, making it easy to apply BB cream / CC cream to the hard-to-reach areas on the face like the corners of the eyes and nose.
I can’t tell you how disappointed I was with this brush. It was basically impossible to buff the makeup into my face, because I could only seem to stroke makeup one way down my face. That made my makeup look really cakey and heavy, which is the exact opposite of the look I am trying to achieve when I use BB cream. It was far harder to use than a flat foundation brush even.
So after a few uses, I have to admit that I have thrown this brush straight in the bin and started using a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. What a waste of £7.99!
I find Eco Tools really hit and miss as a brand. Some of the brushes are fantastic, like the blusher brush, whereas others like this are pretty terrible. What’s your experience of Eco Tools?
