Ecotools Makeup Brush Set

A couple of weeks ago I did a haul post (here) for you lovely lot which included my bargain brand spanking new Ecotools makeup brushes which I bought off eBay.
I know it's taken me a while, but as promised I have finally got round to doing the review, so here goes!

The Ecotools set consists of five different brushes and a brush roll which is really handy if you do any travelling or if, like me you commute to work and do your makeup once you get there (just because I'm too lazy to get up any earlier).
It's eco-friendly features include:
  • Bamboo handles
  • Synthetic, cruelty free Taklon bristles
  • Recycled aluminium ferrule
  • Brush roll make from natural cotton and hemp
  • Reusable storage pouch
But are they any good?

L-R: Blush brush, concealer brush, eye shading brush, eyeliner brush and lash and brow groomer
Blush brush - this brush is so soft and great for either blusher or powder. I have personally been using it for blusher and it blends the colour in really well (no looking like you've been using stencils), without any shedding whatsoever. A truly great brush that I'm not quite so sure how I've lived without up to now - my favourite of the set, hands down.
Eye shading brush - Another great brush that does exactly what it says on the tin. It makes even application effortless and again, no shedding and so so soft.
Eyeliner brush - Now I don't use gel eyeliner but I have instead been using this on my eyebrows to fill in my bare bits. Again, fab. Allows a good amount of precision: not too sloppy and not too severe.
Lash and brow groomer - Unfortunately I can't say I will be getting much use out of this brush, although it did come in handy when I opened a new mascara earlier this week which gave me clumpy lashes. The clumps were really easy to remove using this brush and it seperated my lashes well.
Concealer brush - Great quality (are you getting the general gist here?). Soft, no shedding, no complaints.

 These are really great brushes that I would truly recommend to anyone, whether you are just starting out with makeup or are an absolute enthusiast.
Have you used any Ecotools products before?
What did you think?

I purchased my Ecotools set from this eBay seller for an amazing £3.98

They are unfortunately no longer stocking them, but you can purchase the exact same set here for £4.18 plus free delivery.
