Review: Ecotools Six Piece Essential Eye Set Brush

Good morning everyone (or whatever it is in your country), did everyone have a good weekend? I spent mine playing game with friends, haha~ Anyway I hope you guys had a great weekend :D
Today, I'll be doing a review of Ecotols Six Piece Essential Eye Set brush. And yesss... the name is a bit confusing, SIX! I thought I lost one of the brush when I saw there's only five little brushes inside the make-up bag lol. Boo me... didn't know that six here also includes the on-the-go makeup bag.

Description from Ecotools:
This brush set makes it easy to complete any eye look. Use the large eye brush to blend a base shadow over the entire eyelid. The angled crease brush adds definition to the outer crease of your eye, while the petite eye shading brush is perfect for an accent color. Use the highlighting brush to accentuate the brow bone and inner corners of the eyes. Complete the look with the smudge brush by smudging the shadow and liner along the lash line for a smoky finish.
Ecotools Essential Eye Set brushes are made from soft, cruelty-free bristles (synthetic taklon fibers), recycled aluminum ferrules and sleek bamboo handles. Our reusable cosmetic bag is made with natural materials & EVA.

What I like about it:
♥ No animal cruelty and made of eco-friendly recycleable materials (including the bag!)
♥ Taklon bristles are soft
♥ No shedding
♥ No bleeding
♥ Handle and ferrule feel sturdy and very well made
♥ Very reasonably priced ($ 7.99) !!

What I don't like about it:
- Stupid naming, like seriously, six piece set!
- Taklon bristles tend to pick up less products
- Large eye brush and angled crease brush are kinda too big for my eyes

This is my first Ecotools brush set and I bought it on a whim because of the price *lol* it was on sale back then, like seriously, 50% off? that's really a steal, haha! I just NEED to buy it! And I'm glad I did! Aside from the price I've always been curious because lots of people just simply adored ecotools.
I use the large eye brush to apply base color, and go over with angled crease brush, working with darker/other tone on outer eyelids and blend more. But this angled crease brush is somewhat too big for my eyes so it's kind of hard to work with.
I love the highlight brush! But rather than using the highlighting brush to actually highlight, I use it as a blending brush because I think it's better for that purpose.
I accentuate my inner corner with either petite eye shading brush or smudge brush. To do so, I usually wet the brush first before picking up my favorite light colored eyeshadow. 

Downside is, as you might already know, taklon fibers have a tendency to pick up less product. To be really honest, I prefer to work on my eye makeup with natural brushes though, but taklon is also GOOD~ I love it.

I think these brushes are amazing for their price! If you're looking for a brush set at an afforable price, you may consider adding Ecotols Six Piece Essential Eye Set Brush in your wishlist.

Anyway, My brain is kinda laggy now lol. Idk but it took me 2 hours++ to finally finish this review ~___~ maybe it's because I'm starving? lel, I'm gonna fry this delicious kimchi dumpling I got from a friend last week. hoho... and yeah, I'd like to let you lovelies know, that I'm planning to host a giveaway on my blog soon (either December or early January).
