This is a must-have in my kit. I love using it to work color into the crease, also adding a outer crease! For a dollar, you cannot go wrong. I own about 6 of these!
This brush was just alright for me!
I guess the way I apply my eye makeup, this brush just wasn't really necessary for me. It is nice for the occasional dramatic eye where I want to apply a dark shade directly to my crease, but I just don't find myself reaching for it very often.
If you are looking for a brush in this style, it's worth a shot! Cannot beat the price and it's a good starter brush I feel.
this brush is nice the only thing is I wish the bristles weren't so floppy
I love this brush. I originally intended it for smudging out my eyeliner, but this also works just as well with eyeshadow for setting the eyeliner too.
I originally bought this brush for my crease colors but I was not too satisfied. I can't really blend with this brush and the shape is just odd. I can't even use it for my lid because it's too small. I don't see the purpose of this brush but for $1 you can try it out and see if it works for you, as for me? It was pointless.
I love this brush. It is a nice wooden handle with a natural fiber brush and the brush is very soft and flexible. It does apply shadow well I like using this for the crease. It doesn't do precision though since the brush is too wide and soft but it works well for shading and shadows. I use this every day and love it. I will dig through my brush stash to find it I like it that much. I got a pack of ELF brushes that were in a set sold at Christmas time that were black handled and these are so much better so if you got that set please know that this brush is SOOO much better quality. All these white ELF brushes are fantastic, but skip the black set ones.
This brush has many uses, but it isn't amazing at them. It can be used at different angles for different purposes. However, it is not for eyeliner, because it is too thick and not dense enough. I tried it to highlight (okay), put eyeshadow on the lid (not very good), use it in the crease (not bad), on the lower lashline (pretty good), and use it for brows (very good). It is rather soft, but not very dense. As with most elf essential brushes, the metal part fell off the handle, but this is easy to fix. I don't use this brush that often and wouldn't buy it again, but if you're looking for a cheap ($1), multipurpose eye brush, then try it out! :)
I have quite a severe hooded eye, so most brushes recommended for "regular" eyes just don't work on my eye shape (that includes the usual shaders, blenders and crease brushes). I've found this one, quite to my surprise, works extremely well for my eye shape. I can use it to apply solid colour over the lid, but still be able to get to the inner corners (too big of a brush just won't do it). Changing the brush angle, I can also use it to apply colour loosely to the outer v and crease, go over with tapered blender, and build up colour intensity upwards in the crease with the e.l.f brush, using it both horizontally for depth in and just slightly above the crease, and vertically in the crease for added height to help the hooded eye. The beauty is all in the angles of it. It can be used at a diagonal angle for inner eye highlight, vertically to sweep colour across the lid, horizontally for the crease, or in a controlled patting motion using more of the flat tip for more intense lid colour, changing up the angle as needed.
For the price, I honestly wasn't expecting much, I put it in my cart at the last minute as a spare brush for when my others were still wet or packed away, however, I find myself reaching for this more than a lot of other brushes.
I can see it may not be everyone's cup of tea if you're used to different application methods, but it does have some practical uses for the right application. But for the price, it's not a huge risk if it turns out you're not a fan.
This brush is terrible. I don't understand the ratings? It is very scrathcy, extremely flimsy, does not pick up enough color, whatever is manages to pickup, it kind of drags and makes a mess under the eyes. There are tons of other brushes for $1 (seriously, ANY brush will be better) that are of better quality. This brush also sheds. Garbage. No worth even a penny. Do not buy!
I agree with kr1sti below. I bought this because of the ratings here, but the brush is very scratchy. Not something I would use on my eyes! It also doesn't pick up enough product. At least I didn't waste a lot of money since it was only a few dollars.
