Here! Look what I picked up yesterday afternoon.
The long brush is my Ecotools bamboo blush brush which I use everyday and which gives me the perfect application for my blush. I got mine online but you can purchase it in Malaysia too – read here for my take on this.
Anyway, I picked up the short brush yesterday. Looks just like the Ecotools bamboo brush with bamboo handle and aluminium ferrule and brown synthetic bristles.
But as they say, sometimes, looks can be deceiving. Find out more below.
Take a closer look at the handle of the short brush.
Its a FENLING brush! Whatever Fenling is 😛
Its made in China just like Ecotools brushes so my guess is that its a lookalike or just comes from the same factory as Ecotools brushes.
Thanks to Eli I found this at the pharmacy at Jusco MidValley Megamall for RM16.90. I have not washed it so I have not used it. On my hand, it feels soft and pliable but less dense. Might make a decent travel powder brush for foundations and the like. I’ll see how it fares in comparison to other similar short handled powder brushes. From a preliminary point of view, its less dense than many of my other brushes.
I’ll tell you about this Fenling brush in a later post 🙂
Note: A quick check online tells me that Ecotools does not make a short handled powder brush so I can’t say this is a copy or a dupe. Its just a lookalike. Look in the Jusco pharmacy if you are interested.
