Decent buffing brush, affordable
I love EcoTools brushes for their quality, eco-friendliness, and affordability.
I originally purchased this brush thinking it would be a good budget option for the famous Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki brush, and aimed to use it for buffing in my liquid foundations for a flawless airbrushed look.
However, this buffing brush is quite average for my foundation and is not as versatile as I hoped. I find it inconsistent in applying foundation.
It streaks and does not buff well with thick, matte and fast drying foundations (unless I add an oil to the foundation, but even then, not the best, I would have to go over the face with a damp beauty sponge to smooth everything out). I think that's due to the brush being super dense that it does not allow for much mobility and flexibility to buff and spread the product well. It works better with thinner, more fluid foundations, but other brushes can do a better job.
This brush is better with powder foundation or powder touch ups, and they work well on this regard - although I don't use powder much and I did not purchase the brush for that purpose.
On the plus side, its super soft, has not shedded, is ecofriendly and affordable. I can still find use for it in my makeup application and works when I have no other brushes to use, its just not my go to brush nor my fave Ecotools brush.

good for foundation
This brush is actually really good for liquid foundation. It does take a bit longer to blend in my foundation than some other brushes do, but it's also smaller than my other buffing brushes so it's more precise and can get into small spaces more easily. I definitely think it's worth a try, especially if you're on a budget and need a brush that will get the job done. I wouldn't recommend this for powder though, because of how small it is.

I actually bought this brush on a whim as I needed a new buffing brush but didn't have time to order from my usual provider and it has since become my go to. I find you don't need as much product as what you'd use with some other buffing brushes. It can have a tendency to leave your face a little streaky but if you persevere it does even out.
Patience is key and don't be afraid to really get in there and buff

Too soft to use
I clearly remembered buying one of these brushes to try as Eco had a sale and even though it is suppose to be natural and environmentally friendly etc, the bristles were so delicate and soft that it actually bent on my face instead of allowing it to stroke firmly. It does feel fluffy and soft and very nice to touch but didn't find it useful in a practical sense.
Use if you like very soft brushes
with or without makeup use

Best brush for a flawless base!
This brush is just what you need to achieve a flawless base! It so quick and easy to use to apply liquid foundation (or whatever liquid product you're using) and leaves your skin looking lovely with no streak marks! You can't go wrong for such a cheap brush

Favourite foundation brush!!!
This product is amazing and so versatile. First off the bristles are really soft, and the brush itself is sturdy and has lasted through many washes. I use this brush for both liquid and powder foundation. It takes so little to blend and buff the product into the skin with this brush, and leaves a flawless look behind. I also use this brush if I ever accidentally apply too much blush or bronzer, to diffuse the product. If you don't have this brush you need it and I highly recommend you pick it up.

I use the Eco Tools buffing brush to apply my liquid foundation and I am able to perfect a flawless finish every time. There are never any streaks/drag marks, which I have sometimes experienced with regular foundation brushes. The buffing motion you use with this brush means you get an airbrushed effect and large pores are covered perfectly. You just have to be careful to avoid the bamboo and metal handle when cleaning it, and I have found that it does take a little bit longer to dry (due to the density of the ultra soft bristles), but that is a minor price to pay considering the quality and great price of this brush. Woolworths and Big W also stock this brand, and I have seen them on sale a few times now.

This is another great brush by eco tools. It's perfect for putting on your foundation and buffing it in. I found that I use less liquid foundation when using this brush as it really allows me to buff in the product and therefore use less of it. The brush is so soft that I cannot help but run my hands over it.

I use this brush everyday to pat and buff my powder over my foundation. It has soft bristles and has never shed (despite using it for over a year). It picks up and applies my powder wonderfully. I love it.

After reading many positive reviews of Ecotools' brushes I purchased this one as I was in need of a good buffing brush.
Appearance wise it looks great and thought it would work well as the brush head is dense which is supposed to be helpful for buffing product into the face. The bristles are extremely soft and gentle and I think this is where the brush fails for me. It is hard to pick up product and I find that I have to reapply several times which is time consuming and annoying. It buffs the product adequately but not as well as I had expected.
Overall, quite disappointing and I would be reluctant to try any other brushes.

Very soft and gentle
After hearing raves on ecotools' brushes, i took the plunge and bought this brush on sale at priceline. The bristles are very soft and gentle on the skin, and doesn't shed.
When using this brush, i find that i don't need to use so much product. Will be buying more brushes from this range in the future.
