As you can tell both brushes have the same design: bamboo handles, synthetic taklon bristles, and aluminum ferrule, they come packaged the same way too. The ferrule and handle are slighly thicker on the new brush. But the way the brushes perform is much different, and although you would think the new brush would be an improvement, I am not so sure.
So I am half and half about this brush. I think the new design is an overall nicer brush, it's soft and fluffy, blends well, but it's huge. If they had made it smaller I would of been totally happy with it. If you still want to buy the old design brush, you can get it in the 6 piece kit since I don't think they've updated that yet.
What did you think of the newly designed Ecotools eyeshadow brush?
