Eh. Wasn't at all impressed but for $1, I really wasn't expecting much to begin with.
Because of its smaller size and somewhat pointed end, the ELF crease brush is adequate at applying color in specific areas (e.g., a narrow crease area) but I found it 1) too prickly and 2) the shadows apply splotchy so I have to blend rigorously with another brush to make them appear smooth. (although I don't have baby smooth skin anymore which may contribute to the splotchy look). It just isn't worth the hassle.
Only because of the extremely affordable price would I recommend it to beginners who are on an extremely tight budget. Everyone else--not so much. .
Having no luck with the Studio contour brush I found this at Walgreens and it has the right size and shape for the job.
The studio brush had a rounded top and bigger size, this essential line brush is smaller, with a tapered tip and has give.
The little one dollar crease brush is a workhorse and just ordered another on the website.
Cannot say enough about this brush!!! Absolutely couldn't live without it, by far the best crease brush I have ever used not to mention the cheapest one! I have quite small eyes and this brush is small so is perfect for applying eyeshadows. Would defiantly recommend this to everyone, such a steal why not give it a try.
I love this brush its soft picks up color well and doesn't shed:)
My friend has this brush and I used it once on her when I did her makeup. It worked amazingly and I'm planning on buying one for me soon.
One of the best dollars I've ever spent! I use this brush every day!
I own 4 of these & they are all different. But it's not a bad thing though, I find that one is less dense w/ longer tapered bristles so it's a perfect crease brush, another has shorter denser bristles making it perfect for deepening my outer corner. Sometimes they have bristles of different lengths so it's kind of like a tiny duo fiber brush, w/out the duo fiber-ness lol!! Some are softer than others, shed more, & smelly. However, with all their differences, I love all of them for that fact. Their differences give them a variety of use, I use these brushes everyday with my eye makeup, I've had two of them for almost 5 years now & they have not given up! For the price anyone can give these a shot, you might not get the same one twice, but for under 5 bucks, you're bound to find one that you might love for a long time & achieve the look you're aiming for.
Seriously, this is an amazing crease brush and blends so easily with shadows. It picks up a ton of eyeshadow really well and you don't have to keep rubbing to get on product. For 1$, you cant beat it. I will continue to buy this as long as I need it and I think it will last me a very long time because these aren't cheaply made at all and never had any shedding and the hairs are really soft. Great brush for precision or adding depth to your crease and smoke out your look. Best dollar ive ever spent!!!
Ladies, in all honesty, how CAN you go wrong with a $1 crease brush? On top of that, it blends very nicely. Although it's obviously not going to be as amazing as Stigma brushes, for example, this brush is simply fantastic and is a must buy.
I already own 2 of these brushes because they are so versatile and such good quality. I don't use it for my crease, I prefer using the ELF blending brush for my crease, but I use this brush to apply highlighter on my brow bone and highlighting my inner corner tearduct. Its a great size, nice and precise, really dense and very little shedding. ELF make the best affordable makeup brushes, I think I must own nearly every single one they make because they are so good!
