Testing new tools!

Yesterday I bought Ecotools foam applicator, I already had the big brush but wanted to test out the foam foundation brush. It's impressive that you can buy sustainable makeup tools in Boots. 

There's been alot of hype recently around this kind of applicator, I didn't want to buy a handheld egg type applicator, doesn't it just squeeze through to your hand? 

Anyway I applied my foundation, Bourjois Radiance Reveal, Healthy Mix, shade no.53 (light beige) with the foam applicator, found that it applies a very fine layer to your skin, looks very natural and almost airbrushed but I did find you have to use more foundation as the brush soaks up quite a bit. Plus if you have bad skin it isn't great for coverage, the foundation applied without the brush is better for coverage but you don't get the same finish.

(just after applying foundation) 

I had to use a lot of concealer for any spots etc. I would recommend this product for the amazing finish it gives skin but do consider you will need a good quality concealer for underneath as this thin layer of foundation doesn't hide blemishes at all. 

My finished look above, all images have no filter, I was extremely happy with the natural finish and feel of my foundation and love the new brush!  Well done Ecotools and Bourjois.
