This is not your typical review.
When I bought this brush, I thought it would make a good smudging brush for my under eye but it did not work. After that I tried using it as a lip liner brush but again it failed at that. I then tried it as an eye shadow brush and again it didn't work. The last time I tried it as a concealer brush and it failed miserably. I was about to throw this brush in the garbage when I had an idea. This brush is fairly stiff and short. I thought, if I cut the brush in a slant it would make a good eyebrow brush or eyeliner brush. After cutting the brush, I started to see if it would work with my eyebrow wax. As I placed the brush on my eyebrow, I quickly realized that this brush is amazing. It sculpts the end of my brows out perfectly and colors them in effortlessly. I have had difficulty finding a good eyebrow brush because they all have long flimsy hairs. My eyebrows were done within two mins- no hassle whatsoever. My eyebrows are extremely important to me and I am so happy with the result.
I just bought several ELF brushes and this is the standout! The bristles are nice and firm but still flexible, smooth but still great at picking up product. I use it to apply eyeshadow as eyeliner.
Very useful. I have used it for concealing, applying eyeshadows and touchups. Can be used with liquid, cream and powder product. The bristles are a little stiff which is good for concealing.
A nice brush to have. It is very small and allows for precision application of eyeliners and such. The bristles are not too stiff but not too soft and flexible. For the price this brush is well worth it. I guarantee you will have a use for this brush. I would definitely repurchase!
I use this for lip colour. Very precise and soft. But way too small so I had to go over quite often.
The lip colour came out well though... Hmm....
I had an amazing coupon through E.L.F's website and this is one of the brushes I bought. I have used it a few times now. I prefer to use a dark powder eyeshadow for eyeliner and this brush makes application so much easier! The lines comes out perfect almost every time. Great brush!
I use this brush for concealing and lip lining I love how small it is but hard to wash though!
I've been using this brush for a while, it doesn't shed and the bristles are so soft.
It's my favorite for gel eyeliner, I've tried a lot of different brands for that purpose (ecotools, shu uemura, sephora, coastal scents) and this one is the less expensive but also the one that works best for designing a line because it's so soft and so firm at the same time. It doesn't work for very very thin lines but that's not what I use.
Edit: after a couple of years the metal part became loose and although I tried to glue it to the cable it's still loose, it's still a good product for the price but I wont buy it again.
I find it difficult to apply eyeshadow with larger brushes in the precise shape I need to to avoid looking clownish since I have a lot of lid space. This brush is perfect and great quality for $3.
I've had this brush for a month and have mostly been using it with eyeshadow and needless to say it works great, it's one of the smallest, most precise brushes I have ever seen. Today I used it for gel eyeliner and it worked just as well. The line was a little thicker than I expected it to be but still, I can't wait to try to draw a cat eye with it. It's so well made, it doesn't shed and the bristles are so soft. I got this on sale at 50% off so I can't believe it only cost me 2 euros. For this price you won't find a better brush anywhere. Have already purchased another one.
