This brush is just kind meh to me. It's scratchy on my skin and to me doesn't do a great or even good job. I'm on the lookout for a new one.
dirt cheap and gets the job done! my eyes aren't sensitive or anything and the two brushes I picked up were soft and hasn't shown any signs of shedding. I couldn't justify spending over $20+ for a blending eyeshadow brush and decided to start off with cheaper alternatives first. I figured if they didn't work I wouldn't be too sad since I only forked some pocket change for it.
maybe I'll try some higher end ones later on but I'm in no hurry at all. I've done some awesome smokey eyes with these brushes (blends well, picks up a fair amount of shadow), no complaints from me!
A dirt cheap brush, and thus it has got its flaws. However, all in all I'm very happy with this brush as it does its job quite well and has not shed much so far. I would say this is a good investment if you're on a budget but still want a good brush.
I bought two of these off the e.l.f nz website. One sheds like crazy (therefore I don't use it), and the other falls off of the wooden handle every time I use it, which I fixed with superglue!!. Not a bad product, it does blend eye shadow well, and I find it useful for crease work. I'd only recommend buying this product if you're prepared for the fact that you may get a dud!
This brush has eluded me for about 2 1/2 years, I really wanted and hunted for this brush when I got serious about my makeup a few years back and first started building up my kit/brush collection. I saw it used in almost every YouTube tutorial, so I made it a point to keep my eyes open for it when at Target. I didn't want to pay a higher price by ordering online when everyone else was getting it for a dollar so I decided against buying online, plus unless I know and trust the brand I like to buy brushes in person. I eventually forgot about it and got so tired of cheap drugstore low quality brush sets and singles and not being able to find a DS blending brush for the life of me, that I purchased a 12 piece professional eye and face brush set + some extra brushes and other stuff from Sigma. Here I am 32 brushes later and I happen across this brush the other day at Food4Less :/ Figures this whole time I was looking at Target where they're supposed to be exclusive in carrying the whole ELF line :/ I have never seen this brush anywhere in real life so I knew this might be my only chance :D I compared brushes in store and picked which one looked best to me :) I doesn't look like any of the other blending brushes I own, its very small and crease brush looking instead of full fluffy tapered blending brush looking, I have only used it once so far but I can tell it's gonna be a favorite that I reach for everyday ,this brush is awesome. I have large eyes with alot of lid space and this brush works to pick up a good amount of color and pack it into the crease as well as blend it out beautifully. It did shed a little on first wash, and about four fibers when actually used, which is to be expected, it' did cost one dollar :/ other then that no problem. I hated the eye shadow shading brush from this same white handle line, but love, love, love this one and will run to Food4Less to buy a few backups soon. I guess good things really do come to those who wait ;)
I've read a few reviews on this, I have 3 of these brushes and haven't experienced the crazy shedding, but mine has lost a few hairs.
Before I brought my 217, I thought I would get a cheap version first, so I brought this and to honest, it does the job. I use this when I have t got time to clean my 217 or I use it for cream shadows that I don't want to stain my 216 with. Again like the elf eyeshadow brush, you need to have some glue for when the wood comes apart from the metal, which is no biggy as the brush is £1.50. I would suggest this brush to people who are starting out with makeup and just want a few tool to practice with, before they spend the big bucks.
I bought 3 of these thinking if they're good it will be worth it. But they're not. All 3 of them are scratchy and they shed, not a lot, but they do. The hairs are also not cut properly, so that they are not all the same shape and some of them stick out.
The first picture is also inaccurate, the brush looks the the one in the 2nd and 3rd pictures, so it's not tapered like the 1st picture would make you believe but more rounded. I personally prefer a more tapered shape for blending brushes, so thought I'd mention it, not that I would ever recommend this brush to anyone.
Horrible! The brush came with a crooked handle. There was shedding the moment it touched any surface. Had to wipe all my eye makeup off and redo everything because there was so much hair on my eyelids. Argh!
I would've loved this brush if it didn't come loose. I bought one and after awhile it came loose and all the bristle came out so I bought a second one and it also is coming loose. Very disappointed because I really did like this brush.
This brush sheds SO MUCH! Especially when I tried to use it to blend out concealer, I ended up with tiny hairs all over my face! Not cool. It works a bit better for blending eyeshadow if I don't press too hard. The brush doesn't feel very soft either, more rough.
