Ecotools 6 piece eye brush set review

BAMBOO 6 piece eye brush set

This set of eye makeup brushes by ecotools come with a a little plastic bag. On the description on the back, they claim to be earth-friendly because the handles are made from bamboo, whereas the bristles are "cruelty-free" (which means they are made of 100% man-made materials I suppose).

This natural cotton travel case may not be the prettiest, but it's so light and easy to carry around you probably won't even notice the weight in your bag. It also comes with a mirror on the side which may come in handy. Thumbs up for this design, it's amazing how they fit all the essentials into one small case!
Look how petite the brush set is, even comparing with my phone!

The brushes are so small and adorable!

Each of these brushes has a label on them saying what purpose they serve, including blend, crease, highlight, shade, smudge. (what does shade mean?) Obviously I just use them the way I find them most useful, I saw some reviews saying that the blend brush (first one on the left) is oversized. I find it just to be perfect for applying a base color all over the lids. None of these brushes are too big nor too small.

Pros 

-bristles are very gentle and soft on the eyes
-very light, travelers-friendly
-affordable prices

Cons
-slightly unpleasant smell from the case? but you can always wash it
-mirror is actually "fake", a piece of paper that reflects lol
