          Comments about EcoTools Bamboo Foundation Brush:

          I use this product for my foundation and my concealer. I really like the shape of the brush; it works really well for the creamy foundation that I use. Also, I like how it comes in its own little pouch, which could be really like for traveling or storage. However, the bristles on this brush aren't soft at all. They feel like actual plastic, which I really dislike, and are the main reason that I gave this brush two stars.

          Great brush blends well with cream and liquid foundations. It has a great shape that allows you to cover every curve on your face. Great for under eye concealer too. Picks up the perfect amount of product

                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.

                    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!
