ELF is my go-to for all my brushes! I decided to grab this stipple brush because I had had good luck with their blush and powder brushes. Another great ELF find! The brush is soft, yet sturdy and blends powder and liquid flawlessly.
Just a tip...although most ELF brushes are great, the ones with the black handles hold up much better than those with white handles. They're also $3 instead of $1-$2. Either way, so, so worth it!
Love this brush. So sturdy and soft bristles! Love that it's only 3 dollars too! I plan on buying several of these for various uses.
I love this brush! It works well for a number of liquid formula such as liquid foundation, cream foundation, cream blush and so much more. For $3 bucks you cant beat it!
No kidding this is my new favorite blush brush. I bought it because I heard it was a good one and I am here to tell you go buy it for $3 because any blush you apply with it will look so much better. I don;t know why but even the color blushes that you never use anymore look better to me! I am in shock and disgusted that I have 3 expensive blush brushes and this beat them for so cheapo. My GOD it is great. Not tried it for foundation. I am kicking myself for not trying this sooner.
Although I have a larger MAC stipple brush, I like this one much better for foundation. It's dirt cheap and I have never experienced any shedding. HG.
Woo hoo! This small brush is excellent. And for $3 only? I am totally speechless, I need to go stock up. I have the small 188 MAC brush which cost me abt $35 and the ELF small stippling brush does a waaaay better job, hands down. This is a great brush for blush, highlighting, and contouring. I also applied my foundation and BB cream with it and it did a great job (I usually use the coastal scents large stippling brush for that but this one actually works better, go figure).
I am highly impressed by the quality - works great and no shedding! This may end up my HG because its so much bang for the buck.
I have the MAC stipple brushes, both the small and larger one (#130 & #187) and the ELF stipple brushes are better quality. The MAC sheds and the white hairs are a bit too long, and the ELF gives a more airbrushed, natural finish to foundations/BB creams or powders.
I use this to apply mostly liquid foundations and BB creams, cream blushes, and also to pat some powder under the eyes, or to blend out concealer. I have had mine for several months and it never sheds - not during washing (and I wash mine every 3-5 days in brush shampoo & warm water) or application. The white hairs are shorter, closer to the length of the denser black hairs and it makes for a better, smoother finish in my opinion. I love that the hair is synthetic so it doesn't soak up all the product. The price is great too, very affordable.
I stocked up and bought 4-5 of these, and have 2 on the go currently for different products and the rest are still in the packaging untouched - but honestly, because they are such good quality I doubt I will have to replace them anytime soon.
Oh my goodness! For only $3 this brush performs like a high end expensive brush! I love that it's so small because it is able to apply foundation evenly and it provides an "air brush" effect. It's so lovely. I cannot find myself ever giving this brush up to apply my foundation any other way. It should be worth alot more and if it was I would gladly pay because its that good. It stays together well after countless washes and make up application it's wonderful! It hasn't come apart or anything.
I feel as if I'm the only person this has happened to. It was an alright brush for a few weeks then all of a sudden- shedding galore. Keep in mind I clean all of my brushes once a week. It sheds even when I'm not cleaning it. It now just has a few hairs on it, some bigger than others which kind of hurts when I pressed it into my face. I used it to apply foundation when I first got it, then to blush. But now I think I will be throwing it away. Although it is good to know I didn't waste a lot of money since it is only three dollars!
