Quite a while back I purchased the ecoTools 6 Piece Essential Eye Brush Set and fell in love. I’ve gifted this set twice so far. I decided that meant it was time to review it! You know if it’s good enough to gift, it’s good enough to write about
$7.99 but price varies and sometimes you can find these BOGO at Ulta, Walgreens, and other online retailers.

I like to use this brush to apply shadow to my lower lid or inner corner, or for detailed work in the crease.
Petite Eye Shader Brush
I use this size brush to apply shadow to my lid, especially if I’m doing 2 or 3 shades on the lid. It’s perfect for that.
This is my all time favorite highlighter brush style! I’ve got a ton of these. I use these to highlight at the inner corner of the eyes and under the brows. This is my PERFECT highlighter brush and a must have in my opinion.
Angled Crease Brush
I use this to apply color to the outer v, outer lid, or outer crease. It’s too big to do the entire crease. This is my least favorite brush in the set, but I can still find a use for it.
Large Eye Brush
This is perfect for applying my base color to my browbone and crease. Since I have hooded eyes, I typically apply my base color just to my browbone and crease, and this brush is perfect for that.
Now, I really don’t like the case that comes with this brush. I’d rather it include a slightly larger lid brush, as opposed to the case, but I can see that some people might like the case. I just prefer to use my brush roll.
I highly recommend this brush set, and most ecoTools brush sets in general. I really love their brushes. They’re cruelty-free, they hold up well after lots of use, they’re easy to care for and they’re inexpensive. While some people don’t like the shorter handles, that doesn’t bother me because I have smaller hands. However, if you have larger hands, I would recommend checking these brushes out in person to see if it would be an issue for you.
