Omg, this brush is absolutely horrible...It doesn't grab/hold ANY makeup at all...when I used it, and tried brushing my face with it, there was nothing. I tried harder, pressed it hard into the blush, and then it took a hold of some...but streaked HORRIBLY. I don't think it's THAT course or scratchy but oh my lord the streaking was so bad.
I am so thankful that this was only $1... I hate this brush with a passion. It's very coarse and flimsy. I can't can't can't put this to my face.
I'm suprised at the bad reviews of this brush,i have two of these brushes and love them.I do agree the studio line is better,but as a freelance makeup artist i use these for work and they work great!
THIS BRUSH IS AWFUL!
At first I did disagree with the reviews and thought it was okay. But after a while the bristles started to come out and I felt that it was very itchy. Instead, buy the elf studios brushes. They are only $3 and work as good as a high end brush!
This has to be the worst brush on the planet. I'm so relieved I'm only out a dollar. That is probably how ELF is making $$ on this brush. Consumers buy their product for $1 and don't want to mess with returning it.
The brush is very rough and scratchy and even after repeated washing and attempts to condition with oil the brush smells like burning tires. DON'T waster your money, even $1!
Not soft, weird shape & hard to clean b/c the bristles are dyed red and they bleed.
The hair/fibres are rough, and not dense enough to do the job. It sheds and bleeds when washed, has an unpleasant smell also. I hardly ever reach for this. I think I might just use this for dusting my desktop.
Very scratchy D:.I have the E.L.F Complexion Brush,which is about $2 more,and it comes in black,its way better.Softer bristles,and applies more evenly and that has a natural finish.This brush is only my "emergency" extra brush.Its only a dollar,so i dont really regret buying it,but i wont be repurchasing this again.And i also dont really like the red tint to it.
What a waste of a dollar. First time I used this, the ferrule separated from the handle. Awesome! Also the bristles are scratchy. I'll hold onto the ferrule/bristles to use with my LUSH dusting powder, but ugh I'm annoyed that I bought this.
I bought this and the first time I used it, it was okay. Washed it and it went to crap. It's so scratchy and just not nice feeling on your face. Such a horrible brush! Threw it away after that.
