    Comments about EcoTools Buffing Brush:

    I've just gotten into contouring, using bronzer and what not. This brush works really well when I'm blending my bronzer on my cheeks to make it look more natural. I did not expect this, but I will definitely go back and buy more eco tools brushes!

    Comments about EcoTools Buffing Brush:

    I really love this brush. I use it with liquid foundation and it gives it a light, airy finish. I'm sure you could build your foundation with it to create a more full face finish, but I like more natural looks. It's REALLY soft, which I love. I wish it had a larger handle, but other than that, love it.

            The bristles are so soft and doesn't stretch my skin. I use this brush for liquid foundation so I could buff it on my skin for a matte finish. The bristles are tight so the liquid can be buffed properly. I wish it was a little bigger, nevertheless I love this brush.

                  This brush is a good substitute for the higher end brushes if you're on a budget. I prefer my higher end brushes but I do have this one in my collection. I use my higher end brush for going out or special occasions and this one for everyday.

                        Hi Emmka,

                        I love love love this brush, mainly for getting a flawless foundation. You could use it for blending out concealer, but I'm concerned the brush head and bristles might be a bit too big.

                        We did just launch an amazing concealer duo that would probably be perfect for under eye concealer - you can find it here:

                        Hi SJL427,

                        This is one of the best foundation brushes that EcoTools has and it has a density that is perfect for liquid foundations. I think you will be happy with the level of performance of this particular brush for that foundation.

                        Thanks!

                    • Q:

                      I have plenty of money to spend and I have been really looking for a good buffing brush. My cousin has a couple of Eco tools brushes and when I used them, I really like them! So I am kind of young but I still love makeup.

                      Does this brush provide fuller pigmentation for a powder or is it the same with a powder brush? I really like my tarte airbrush I think it's called a buffer. I want something that will give fuller coverage. Also, what is a good powder/CC/BB to use with this brush? Definitely thinking about purchasing!

                        Hi there,

                        With the cut and type of the bristles on EcoTools brushes, they are designed for flawless application and an air brushed finish. This is one of our best selling brushes and it absolutely an Ulta Fan Favorite.

                        Thanks so much.

                        Hi Needabrush (love your screen name):

                        I've asked around and there haven't been any comparisons between this brush and the Urban Decay one. I can tell you that this Buffing Brush is one of my absolute favorites for foundation application, not only because the bristles are unbelievably soft, but it blends and applies so well that I actually have found that I don't need to use as much foundation as I do with other brushes.

                        Depending on how many brushes you're looking to add to your regimen, one of the best things about EcoTools brushes is that, on top of the high quality you'll get with it, you really pay only a fraction of the price compared to a lot of the other brushes that are out there.

                        Thanks so much! Hope that helps!

                        A:

                        HI there,

                        This is a perfect brush for BB or CC creams, as well as foundations (pressed or liquid). It really is a great multi-use brush in general. Because you'll be buffing the product into your skin, if you use a lighter-in-weight cream like a BB or a CC, you will be creating a very natural look, especially if that's the only coverage you are using. However, this brush is also perfect for layering product, if you want to go a bit heavier or use additional foundations, concealers, etc.

                        I like a more airbrushed look - the kind you get when you use more product. So, I use EcoTools Buffing Brush with a BB cream to start, then I use my EcoTools Correcting Concealer brush to hide any additional imperfections, then go back to my Buffing Brush to apply my pressed liquid foundation & finish my routine from there.

                        Please let us know if you have any more questions at all! We hope you love the brush!!
