I use this brush daily. I use it to deposit colour on my eyelids. it works great, and i am young and dont have a lot of space to work with. it isnt too big for me to use, it's great :D it's pretty soft, not very firm. It's overall a great brush, esp. for just $1!
I've been using two of these E.L.F. eyeshadow brushes for several years now. They are absolutely two of my favorite eye makeup brushes of all time. This is one instance in which price is NO indication of quality - I've got brushes that I paid much more for that are not nearly as good as these.
Like some other reviewers have mentioned, some of the brushes do shed. I got one that shed quite a bit, but I simply re-crimped the crimp line with a pair of pliers I had lying around, and haven't had that problem since.
For $1 you really cant get a better brush for eyeshadow. I also think that given the price of the brush, there is some luck of the draw in the quality. The two that I have do not shed at all...however, I have had other ELF brushes that shed like crazy...but again...whose complaining for a $1 brush?
I use this to pack on eyeshadow, blend eyeshadow/liner under the eye, and to blend out liner on the top lash line...it does its job perfectly....def comparable to higher end brushes...i really like that its smaller than similar brushes...it does its job perfectly.
I am thinking of buying a few more, one for concealer, and a few others just to have in rotation if i need the same brush for multiple colors.
When I first got this brush, I hated it. Tons of bristles kept sticking to my eyes. I didn't have my old brush set any more though so I was stuck using it. Eventually it stopped shedding, and now it's my favourite brush.
I have nothing but praise for this eyeshadow brush! The brush I have is probably at least 4-5 years old (so perhaps the quality has gone down more recently?). I have no problems with shedding, and I think the bristles are soft, yet firm enough to hold their shape. I like the short, domed shape of the brush. It picks up the perfect amount of shadow for an allover wash/lid color, though I can use just the tip for more precise placement of shadow. It works equally well with loose or pressed shadows. I am embarrassed to admit I rarely wash my brushes, so I donít know how it holds up to frequent washings (I actually just have a little spray bottle with rubbing alcohol, and I give the brush a little Ďspritzí whenever I feel its in need of a cleaning). I have one brush I use regularly, one in my travel bag, and I purchased a back-up. This is the only eyeshadow brush I use. One of my best beauty bargains- Iíd recommend it to anyone!
I just picked this brush up recently. I haven't used it yet so I may be updating this review, but so far I'm not really impressed with the quality. As soon as I opened the package, the brush was already shedding like crazy and the handle fell apart. I guess since it's $1, you pretty much get what you pay for. Going to try washing it to see if the bristles still fall out afterward.
I absolutely love this brush. It is one of my main go-to brushes for eyeshadow. I use it with my mineral eyeshadow as well and it works perfectly. I am a huge fan of e.l.f. brushes and recommend them to anyone that needs good brushes at a very good price.
Great for the price. But they do shred and if you wash them, red dye comes out. But they're soft and non scratchy.
I don't know if it's because I bought this product at the Dollar Store or if it's because this was a faulty product or something, but when I touched this to my eyelids, I clearly felt that it was SCRATCHY.
For an eyeshadow brush that has been praised the world over, I expected more from it. I tried it on two other occasions and I still don't think I would use it (or buy another one) again.
Awesome brush, great price, hardly sheds. I use it for both powder shadows and cream and works fabulous for both. Def going to buy again and would recommend, its only $1 how can you go wrong.
