One of the hallmarks of Eco Tools bristles is just how soft they feel on the skin without sacrificing efficacy. This brush, according to Eco Tools, was designed to apply powder, blush and bronzer. However, I find the head much too large and long, and it lacks the appropriate density to make it an effective tool for the application of blush or bronzer. Instead I find it effective for the application of finishing powder, blending foundation, and for the final buffing of all products. Mine has never shed a single hair, is easy to wash, dries quickly, and never bleeds. The base of the handle is flat allowing it to stand upright on its own.
Overall assessment: I like this brush. It is soft, easy to use, and effective for a limited scope of uses. I do not feel that it is a good blush or bronzer brush, and frankly I have no idea why they would claim that it was made for that purpose. The price is also extremely reasonable ranging from about $6.00-$8.00. I picked mine up for around $6.00 at Walgreens.
