I use this for contouring my face and it works great in making lines and smudging the product around.
The ELF Angled Blush Brush is the perfect companion to the CULT CLASSIC Powder Brush. I use them both regularly to pat on powder foundation over sunscreen before I go out. The Powder Brush covers large areas fast, while the Angled Blush Brush is useful for small areas like the nose, eyes and ears. It's such a great match!
Like many people here, I started with synthetic brushes but slowly graduated to natural hair ones. Good quality natural brushes are indeed more expensive but they are far better at picking up and blending powder products. Nevertheless, for powder foundation I still prefer a synthetic brush. I don't want part of my sunscreen absorbed by the natural hair. I rather set it all with a synthetic brush first and then use natural brushes for highlight, bronzer and blush.
It is larger and denser than the regular Blush Brush and I would recommend this over the Mineral Foundation Brush. I really appreciate the short densely packed bristles. Unlike Real Techniques brushes, the black color makes it easy to see how much product is present and if it is uniformly distributed on the brush. As with most ELF Studio brushes, with regular washes the handle will come loose with time, but the head almost always holds up. Just glue the ferrule back together and you've got a prefect brush.
NOTE: Instead of Super Glue I suggest Gorilla Glue. It expands in volume and is one of the few glues that is actually water activated and works well on wood - metal. In a few words, it's the ideal glue for a brush.
This is a great brush at a great price. The bristles are soft and very densely packed, which makes application quick and blending out even quicker. The synthetic hairs are easy to wash and have held shape perfectly. I've experienced zero shedding, and have washed this brush many many times in the last year that I've had it. I use this every single day. If anything happened I would definitely repurchase. Highly recommend!
I use this brush for contouring with my deeper bronzers. It's soft and a great size.
I adore this brush -- been eyeing sigmas version for a while but why pay more?
Love it love it love it -- so soft and easy to spot and deep clean. Most of my brushes are elf studio and ecotools. I have the Mac stippling that I barely use for anything cause I don't do liquid foundation anymore only tinted moisturizer concealers bronzers blush and or mineral pressed foundation. Love elf and soooo affordable!!!!
I have been using this for a year and haven't reviewed it? Time flies..anyway. This is a soft, dense angled brush that feels elegant and applies powder like a dream. No shedding at all.
The size and angle are perfect for my face and fits into the hollows of my cheeks as if it were custom made.
For $3.00 you must try this brush. Target has it..go get it now.
I like elf products a lot and this brush is great! It is soft and looks nice. The bristles are densely packed and do not shed. It picks up powder well and blends well. I like to use this for bronzer and contouring. It was a bit smaller than I expected but that's fine since it makes application more precise :) love it!
I purchased this as a contour brush. The price point of this brush was the main attraction for me. I use this brush in conjunction with my Milani baked bronzer to define my cheekbones. The curved shape allows you to really get into the hollows of the cheeks. I use the brush to work my bronzer into the outermost section of my cheekbone, blending in toward my nose and into my temple as well. The application is always great and I don't need to use a ton of product since the brush distributes it so evenly.
I have had no problems with scratchiness, shedding, or loosening of the ferrule. Brushes are just not something I feel the need to splurge on but even if I did, I would probably still use this one. Great bargain.
I usually use a typical blush brush. However, I wanted to try something different. I like this angled blush brush a lot!! I apply the blush in the hollow of my cheeks. It does not shed. I store it in the original packaging so it won't get ruined. Can't beat the $3 price!!
I bought this online, because I needed a brush to contour my face with bronzer.
-Unlike some brushes, the hairs do not come off. Yes, I own a way more expensive brush where the hairs come out...
-The shade is perfect for blush or bronzer: not too small , not too big.
-The hairs are stiff enough, to it is easy to pick up powder.
-Feels soft on the skin
Overall, I think it is an AMAZING brush! I nothing bad to say about it!
PS: Like all brushes, you do need to clean it. ELF does sell a brush cleanser, but I personally only use baby shampoo and warm water to cleanse all my brushes!
