    Comments about EcoTools Bamboo Foundation Brush:

    It was okay, just hard to get used to. I've had a few people say to use a brush when applying liquid foundation and decided to try a budget brush. Eh it was fine, left some lines I had to use my fingers to rub in. I think I'll stick with a make-up sponge for now and find a better use for the brush.

            Great brush. It's soft and gives great coverage with no streaks. Works just as good as the other more expensive brushes. I use this with Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue foundation.

              I love this brush! It is so soft on the skin and had yet to stiffen after 3 months of not cleaning it. I use it two times every two weeks but it's amazing how soft it still is after all this time. So glad I bought it.

                  MY FAVORITE BRUSH!

                  By ColleenMichigan

                  from Howell, MI, United States

                  Comments about EcoTools Bamboo Foundation Brush:

                  I have had a lot of brushes - and this EcoTools CLASSIC FOUNDATION Brush is my VERY favorite! I use it to apply cream, foundation and concealer to my face. I always dampen it with warm water and squeeze excess water out between two fingers and it spreads everything just beautifully! I clean my brush after every use with foaming soap and warm water, squeeze between two fingers, and let it dry in an upright position. I am still on my original brush - which I have owned for years - and it still LQQKS BRAND NEW! I own a lot of EcoTools Brushes and, I have to say, they are the VERY BEST!! They always stay really soft, the handles are the perfect length, I have never had one shed a single bristle and most of all: THEY NEVER SMELL! I have had brushes that absolutely STINK! These have NO smell at all. EcoTools BRUSHES are EXCELLENT!! I just love everything about them!

                      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!

                      A:

                      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!
