The EcoTools Stippling Brush was one of the first brushes I ever bought. It was $5 at Wal-Mart and the bristle looked like it would compliment my Lancome Pressed Powder.
I have used this brush for everything from pressed powder, blush, highlight and contouring. You have to go very lightly when using pressed powder because this could give you cake face if using tinted powders. This brush is best used for blushes in a light sweeping or patting motion.
This brush is best used for blushes in a light sweeping or patting motion. I would not recommend this brush if you looking to press powder into the skin for prolonged wear or contouring.
I found when using contour a little goes a long way. If you placed too much-pigmented powder on your face and wanted to blend it out You were more likely darken that area instead of “fixing” it or making a seamless blending.
The EcoTools Stippling Brush best performed with creamed powders such as bronzer, contour, banana powders and blushes.
In terms of packaging, the brush head reminded me of dog fur (don’t ask why) and it does not shed. I love the wooded handle but I found it to be a bit long and awkward when applying makeup.
Overall, I feel that this brush isn’t worth the investment. Perhaps buy one of the EcoTools thermal brushes or eye brushes instead.
