Okay, to each their own. I LOVE this brush--5 stars hands down. I ordered the RT core collection specifically for the buffing and bronzing brushes and while I was waiting for them to arrive, I happened to see this brush at my local dollar tree. I decided to give it a try and now I actually prefer it over my RT brush. Yes mine was kind of stiff but nowhere like a broom.. that would be painful? That being said, you need a light hand when applying bronzer as it can pick up quite a bit of product. It's not super dense but it's also not super thin. I think it has the right density as it applies just a light dusting (with a light hand) which is exactly what I need to contour my fair skin. It is also easy to build up coverage for those who want darker lines. I can't tell you all how much I love the shape. My RT is round which makes it hard for precise application. This brush is flat and tapered so I just run it horizontally across my cheek and get the perfect contour with no extra blending. As far as shedding goes, I haven't noticed any at all. I am sure with continued use it won't take long, but as of now-ZERO. For $1, what do you expect? Anyone who has ever bought E.L.F. products knows they can be hit or miss. For me, this is a definite hit and I actually have two of these brushes now. I searched foreverrrr for a brush that would give me the contour I wanted and now use this brush everyday. Even though I LOVE LOVE LOVE my RT brushes, the contouring brush couldn't compete.
This brush is a major joke! it feels and looks cheap-when I say cheap I don't mean the price. The bristles are scratchy and hard. It doesn't contour at all-sadly this is a piece of junk. Even for a $1 I still paid way too much. E.L.F products for the most part are really good even the ones that only cost $1 but this is just bad. I even tried washing it and conditioning it and it made no difference. I just flushed $1 down the toilet. I can't return it b/c Target is not taking back anything that has to do with cosmetics open or not and even with a reciept. If I could give this a double 0 I would.
This brush was useless to me. It didn't pick up any color and when it did it wouldn't show up on my face. It's a little scratchy and doesn't feel pleasant. I think it has shed before and the handle is a little loose. It had a good shape to contour, but it didn't work for me.
Hurts like hell like everyone of elf brushes (havent tried mineral brushes yet though). And most of them shed like crazy. Just wouldn't repurchase
it gets the job done but my face is used to much softer brushed i can use this
This brush literally sucks. I bought cause I was new to brushes and wanted something cheap and affordable. For a dollar it wasn't really worth buying. The hairs kept falling out constantly and it rough. Im not saying I put it on harshly, but even when I just brush it on my hand it feels poking at me. I don't recommend this brush at all unless your cheap.
The shape of this brush is the only thing I like- it is ideal for applying contour colour to the hollows of my cheeks. I use better quality brushes to blend out that contour & apply blush. The brush feels very rough and the hairs are all tangly. continued >>
This brush is so bad I could laugh. I paid $1 for it thankfully..So some of the hairs on the brush were straggly and frizzed out. It doesn't hold anything it is just complete garbage! The worst part had to be when I washed the brush and all of the stupid red hairs of the brush started losing their color and my water I was using to clean the brush would not stop turning pink. Soooo I threw it out! Please do not waste your time with this cheap thing. Do something better with your $1...which would be - ANYTHING!
This has the same problem as the total face brush, it's the same bristles just in a different form of brush, the bristles are synthetic and cheap, they scratch and irritate my skin. This is such crap, I'm glad I got this as a gift set from a friend rather then spending my own money on this
Got this because it was so cheap. Absolutely hate it. It's scratchy and sheds like crazy. Plus, upon the first watch, the dye ran. Don't bother with this brush.
