      I use this brush to apply my foundation. It is very soft and applies with no streaking. I have cut 5 minutes from my makeup application time.

            Comments about EcoTools Bamboo Foundation Brush:

            I discovered Eco Tools a couple of years ago, I think it was, at my natural grocery store. At first I got them to try out to see if they could stand up to my mineral makeup (the brushes from that brand are great, but lose softness after a while, bristles break, and are not completely cruelty-free). The fact that they used recycled materials and were cruelty-free made me want to love them--and I do. This foundation brush is actually much better as a finishing powder brush, but probably can be used for almost any foundation and contouring. I have another Eco Tools brush that has more dense bristles for great foundation application. I love how soft and usable these brushes are. Plus they don't cost anywhere near as much as other brushes that I have used previously. Awesome job, Eco Tools, and bravo to ULTA for carrying such a superb product.

              Ugh. I have more makeup on this sponge then I do on my face. My liquid foundation looks like I put it on with a sponge. Did not like this. At all. Returned it day after I bought it.

                Great with liquid foundation. Does not waste product, provides even application and is easy to clean. I knew this would be a great product because I have other eco-tools brushes that work very well. High quality products for a really good price. Would highly recommend!

                        Hi Lauren,

                        I think this would be the perfect brush to apply a face mask. It's flat, which is what you want in order to apply evenly and around contours. It's bristle material is a bit smoother and not as fluffy, plus the bristles are densely packed, so you're able to control where the product goes.

                        Hope that helps! Have fun!

                        Hi Cherry Pie,

                        What a great brush you've picked for a first one! This is one of my favorite brushes to use with foundation, mainly because of the size & shape and how well it works. Apply your liquid or cream foundation with broad, even strokes, and focus additional product on areas you might want to cover (blemishes, brown circles, redness). Use the brush to blend any lines. Because of the cut and type of bristle, this brush gives you a nice amount of overall foundation.

                        Cleaning it is a breeze - we recommend cleaning your brushes every week or two, depending on how often and how much you use it. We make two great types of cleaning products, specifically for brushes. The first is an eco-friendly brush shampoo: http://www.ulta.com/makeup-brush-cleansing-shampoo?productId=xlsImpprod13501085. This is great for that deep clean. Work up a lather using your brush and rinse until water runs clear. To dry, I usually fold up a bath towel and arrange the brushes with the brush tip pointing down and the handle raised so slightly (this directs the water out of the ferrule (which is where the glue is that holds the bristles together)).

                        We also have a great product for those in between cleanings - makeup brush cleansing cloths: http://www.ulta.com/makeup-brush-cleansing-cloths?productId=xlsImpprod13731033&sku=2297112&_requestid=2364993. These are great for a quick swipe and clean between applications.

                        Thanks - hope that helps!
