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.
I'm not very impressed by this brush. I am using it until I find a better face brush, but I might end up tossing it. When i tried to wash it, the red dye ( I am suspecting I am allergic to) was coming off. I was thinking it was all the makeup but after a while I realized it was the coloring. Eh..it was only a dollar.
Basically the worst possible brush I have ever used. I usually don't throw away products because I always find uses for them but this was an exception. I threw it away after multiple attempts to try to make it work. I originally kept it around to dust my computer desk but thought it wasn't good enough for that and eventually threw it out. It is EXTREMELY scratchy and flimsy. It literally makes my face feel like I'm scratching it with needles. I highly recommend NOT buying this. Please do not waste your $1 and use it towards something else.
So I was Target and looking for another makeup brush, and I was looking at all of the Elf brushes. It was between this one, which was $1, or another, which was $3. Me, being cheap, bought the $1 brush and I wish I would have spent the extra $2! For a buck...this brush isn't horrible I guess. Not the softest, but like I said, for $1 it would do. However, it sheds like CRAZY :( I can't apply anything with this without getting little hairs all over my face. I probably won't use this for much sadly, but at least I only wasted $1 on it. Maybe I'll try the $3 one. I hear it is much better.
