The Ecotools Complexion Collection Skin Perfecting Brush ($7.99) is one of a few new makeup brushes that launched in the Complexion Collection. I’ve actually been shopping my own collection of brushes as well as budget ones at stores to see which would work best with the new Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Blushes I recently ordered. I needed something with stiff yet softer bristles to buff these shades in.
My search led me to the Ecotools Complexion Collection Skin Perfecting Brush.
Let’s take a look!
The Ecotools Complexion Collection Skin Perfecting Brush is actually created for BB and CC Cream application. It’s a rounded edge brush with a slant that works well around the nose and curves of your face.
I’ve mentioned in a few of my reviews prior to this one but I have to say I think the packaging and presentation of these brushes is delightful! They have a light wooden handle with a cute metallic band with a palm leaf design done in lighter green and aquatic blue shades. It’s very Spring-y and pretty!
As I mentioned I purchased this for use with the Colourpop Blushes as I thought the slight slant would work great on cheek bones and the shorter fiber bristles would be good for picking up color. So far I find the blushes have a huge learning curve and you really need the perfect brush to apply them so I’m working on finding that brush. This works well with them but I think I need something with even softer bristles.
The bristles are soft here but a little itty bitty scratchy which is an issue I also experienced with the Complexion Collection Concealer Brush. I also, of course, tested this with my favorite BB Cream and it did a nice job of buffing color into my skin and providing a nice flawless finish without soaking it up and not distributing it. I run into brushes that soak up product too easily and I end up wasting a good deal of product this way. I didn’t experience the issue with this brush. I’m actually one for applying foundation and BB Cream with my fingers but if you like strippling it on this brush should serve you well and provides a very natural finish.
This Ecotools Complexion Collection Skin Perfecting Brush and others from the collection have a fairly nice price tag, a cute presentation, and are made quite well but they do have a few quirks such as scratchy bristles to contend with so keep that in mind prior to a purchase! I don’t regret my purchases of these brushes but I sure do wish they performed as well as they looked.
The Ecotools Complexion Collection is available now at drugstores.
