A Short Comparison Post : Real Technique & Ecotools Retractable Kabuki Brush

*both products are purchased by me*

After a post about Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush, i will continue with a short comparison with the one from Ecotools. Both share a same name : retractable kabuki brush.

There's the size comparison both brushes and my own hand.
Both are handy but RT is slightly heavier than Ecotools. It's understand-able since RT's is longer than Ecotools.

Ecotools using Aluminium cap, while RT using clear plastic cap.

 Left : RT brush is 12 cm length
Right : Ecotools is 9.5cm length
both hairs are approximately 3.5cm length

Both handle are made from Aluminium. They also work in the exact same way.

As you could see, RT use 2 colored hair (mostly associated with stippling brush or Sigma's F series) but as far as i know (and correct me if i'm wrong), both black & white colored hair are synthetic.
Ecotools also use synthetic hair and it's slightly more dense than RT's.

I already owned Ecotools Retractable Kabuki Brush and find it's very handy. The one from Real Technique does a lovely job too.
Ecotools with it's usual dense & dome shaped hair works better for pressed & loose powder and powder foundation.
RT with angled brush could also work for blush & bronzer.
In my opinion, they're not a rival but a companion ^_____^
Now i carry both of them in my travel bag.. Maybe i should get a new, bronzey retractable kabuki brush from Ecotools hehehe..

ps. my ecotools retractable kabuki brush is the old version, so it's come in silver handle.
pps. i know my pictures in this post has different lightning, but it's un-important since it's only for tools not a swatch post :)

Thanks for reading :)
