Review: EcoTools Bamboo Foundation Brush

EcoTools Bamboo Foundation Brush1 Review: EcoTools Bamboo Foundation Brush

I couldn’t resist getting the EcoTools Bamboo Foundation Brush even though it probably cost more getting it at Watsons than online. However, paying S$11.90 seems okay for me especially when it granted me instant gratification.

Earth-friend and cruelty free
EcoTools is a range of earth-friendly beauty tools that are also supposed to be easy on our pocket. The brushes are made of synthetic Taklon bristles that are 100% cruelty free and from what I’ve read online, the range have received much raves from users all over. In fact, this Bamboo Foundation Brush I bought received 4.2 out of 5 ratings from 117 users at Makeupalley. Unfortunately, it didn’t make the mark for me.

So I caved in to all the raves I’ve read on the beauty forums and from fellow beauty bloggers and bought the Everyday Minerals Flat Top Brush finally.  It was on sale and I only paid S$10 for it.  I was very excited about this brush and expected it to perform better than the current synthetic kabuki brushes I’m using from Momo Minerals.   But did it?

I have stopped using blotting paper for a long time.  The last ones I used were from Clean and Clear and now, I usually just use a tissue to pat off excess oil if I have to, in the middle of the day.  But when Vicky of Tatcha contacted me to ask me to test her Japanese made aburatorigami blotting papers, I just had to say yes.  Just look at how pretty they are! *right brain tingling* Vicky was very generous and sent me three packets of the aburatorigami papers to try.  You see a lot more in this picture and that’s because I’ve requested more for you, my readers!  *wink*

 Epicare threading tool review & a giveaway

Has anyone ever had your face threaded before?  I’ve never tried that but I remember seeing one of my sister-in-laws having her face threaded by her mom when I was a little girl.  Some thirty years later,  a friend showed me her cleaner eyebrows, thanks to an eyebrow threading session.  I was pretty intrigued but I never tried since I didn’t think I have an issue with facial hair to begin with.
