Influenster VoxBox: Ecotools Review

I love getting a good deal. I am one of those people who has to be careful because I will solely buy something just because it is an amazing deal. So when I found influenster, I signed up immediately. All you have to do is review products and you can qualify to receive boxes of free products, the only catch being that you need to review those boxes to continue to qualify for future boxes. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to try new products for free. You can check it out here.

My most recent box box was full of Ecotools beauty products.

Included was the new Prefect Blender Duo ($9.99), Makeup Brush Cleaning Cloths ($6.99), Full Powder Brush ($8.99), and the 6 Piece Starter Collection ($12.99).

So, I will start with the sponges. Here is a image comparing the Real Techniques sponge, the Beauty Blender and the Ecotools sponge. When dry, they differ in size but they all grow to be about the same size when wet. The Real Techniques and Beauty Blender are both pretty soft. The Ecotools sponge is more firm, but I really enjoyed it. I especially love the way it is cut. It is perfect for getting into the side of the nose and in other problem areas. I was not a big fan of the smaller Ecotools sponge as I found it too firm.

Now here are the brushes. I loved the full powder brush. It is perfect for sweeping away bake as well as using for a full face of powder. I also enjoyed the blush brush, the concealer brush and the spoolie. The angled brush worked fine as well. The only brush I wasn’t a huge fan of was the shadow brush. It wasn’t great at blending, but it also wasn’t great for packing on the shadow. Does it work? Yes. However, I would not recommended this for someone beginning in makeup because it is just too hard to get a nice blend or enough pigmentation.

The final product is the makeup brush cleaning cloths. These worked great! They are perfect for cleaning a brush when switching shadow colors. I would take these traveling with me so that I don’t have to take as many brushes.

Overall, Ecotools is a great brand with awesome, affordable brushes. You can purchase them at many drugstores as well as on their website. 

Have you every tried Ecotools? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below.

Have a great weekend!
