AMAZING, amazing, just amazing. I prefer this brush to all other higher-end stippling brushes. It's much more dense and much more easily manageable, in my opinion. And it's only $3. Talk about a sweet deal.
Despite what others are saying, I actually use less foundation when using this brush for application. I use a pea-sized amount and it's more than enough for my face and neck. I stipple foundation onto my whole face (barely blend) and it really gives me that airbrushed finish.
I actually bought some more to share the wealth with my mom and friends. Haha. I really adore this brush; it's a must-have.
This is the softest, silkiest brush! But also dense. It blows my old Sally Face Secrets flat-top out of the water. That one is a coarse porcupine compared to the sleek cat this brush is.
I use this for the ELF Studio High Definition powder as well as with blush. I haven't used it with any liquids, but with powders it works like a dream. And for the price--!!! A must-have brush.
I purchased this brush on the 27th of December and received it January 8th ( shipping from US to Canada ). I had read alot of reviews on MakeupAlley about this brush, and seen a ton of them on YouTube. I purchased this brush specifically for my mineral and liquid foundation application. Trust me, you will not be disappointed with this brush, it is well worth the wait. It is super soft, dense and has not shed. I'll be ordering another ASAP.
Love this brush, just like all others have said. One lippie off because I have to use twice as much foundation :(
I'm not going to say much others haven't. Believe what people are saying - this brush is fantastic! I used it today for the first time for foundation stippling (technically since I was just running out for an errand, it was tinted moisturizer, but all the same) and it works amazing. The full, flat shape allows for quick application and it makes it go on very smooth. LOVE IT! First brush I know I'm going to buy a back-up of at some point.
Oddly enough though, I didn't love it for powder application, the actual intended use of the brush. I found it to dense and not fluffy as I like for powder. But that's personal preference and I bought it fully intended it use it for foundation, not powder so I still give it full stars.
ETA: I took 1 star off because it is almost impossible to properly clean this brush. I could not get all the trace of foundation out of the brush, it's to dense.
I got my elf package today and I immediately try this brush. I love it. it's soft, sophisticated and well made....I only paid $1.50 because I used a coupon code for 50% off. This applies mineral foundation like a dream. If you wear mineral foundation, get this brush you will not regret it. I am so upset I only bought one now I have to shell out another $6.95 for shipping to get another one.
GREAT Brush! A Youtube makeup guru raved about this brush. When I saw the price, I knew I had to try it. Even though I'm new to makeup, I can tell a difference in applying foundation with the E.L.F powder brush compared to others. It is SO DENSE which is what I love. GREAT for stippling!
I have quiet a few face brushes but this by far is my absolute favorite. I use it to apply my liquid foundation, setting powder and blush. Its dense, soft, and dries really fast. I love the sleek all black look it has and the fact that its synthetic.
This is by far my favorite brush and the best $3 I have ever spent for makeup. I have had this brush for at least 3 months now. No shredding at all. After many many washes, it still works like new. I have only tried it with liquid foundation. This makes putting on liquid foundation so easy. It blends smoothly and evenly. I put a few dots of foundation on my face, use a stippling motion to spread it, and finish up by blending it slightly with a circular motion. It takes me less than two minutes to create natural looking perfect skin. This is way better than the small MAC 187 I got for almost $50. I have also tried other ELF brushes and they are great. After a few months, the handle of the brush is getting a little loose and will probably come off soon. But for $3, I have no complain. I plan to order a few more of these for backups and other uses.
Got this despite hating the foundation brush, and I am so glad that this time I agreed with previous reviews, and am loving this brush. Only been a couple of days, so far it's very soft, have washed it and it was fine, only shedding a few hairs. Tried it with mineral powder, liquid fdtn, blush, and even highlighter, and very pleased with the results. Could end up as my one stop brush, as far as powder and blush goes.
