Snatched up this brush for $1.50! I can't believe it. It's my new favorite. It's fantastic for applying powder foundation, MAC beauty powders, etc. It's sooooooo soft, doesn't shed either. It feels like a much more expensive brush. Shocked at the quality for only $3 rrp. I would absolutely buy this brush again. It's great.
Update: Still in love with the brush, now own a total of 3. It's my HG for applying powder foundation.
I love this brush. It's comparable to MAC's 187 brush, but wayyyy more affordable. I would highly recommend this. It buffs bronzers/blushes/etc into the skin beautifully! I use this to buff my "Petticoat" MSF and it picks up each of the pigments and gently presses the colors into my skin, creating a gorgeous flush. I can't rave enough about this!
This brush is great buy. I also use mine for both liquid and mineral foundation and it works wonders. Its a good alternative to the Everyday Minerals flat-top brush, which I also love. This brush is a little less dense compared to the EM, but it is just as soft. I really like the long handle on this brush, its easier to use I think. And it looks all sleek and stylish with the all-over black ;-) Yes, the brush does have a chemically smell at first but through washings it goes away. Yes, the bristles are a tad uneven but not enough to affect product application. I'm curious to see how well it holds up in the long run since my elf Studio Blush brush has already come loose at the handle. But so far so good with this one, so overall I'd say this brush is definitely a steal!
EDIT: Okay, so I loved this brush so much I ordered 2 more! However I definitely have a different batch here. The bristles are like a half inch longer! This makes the brush a lot less dense and more floppy. Boo! I'd rather use my EDM Flat Top instead of the brushes from this batch. Aw man, one lippy off for inconsistency =(
I bought this, originally for my foudation, mineral, before i used the coastal scents flat top kabuki and long handled flat top. i used this with pressed powder foundation and it went on great and i used it with mineral foundation and it looked great too i also used it with blush and OMG it applied it so smooth and gave it a nice finish worth re purchasing
I am IN LOVE with this brush!! I bought this brush because i LOVE flat top brushes and with this being soo freakin CHEAP, i bought it and used the code carolina for 50% off the total purchase of $15 or less.. and let me say, it works wonders with my mineral AND liquid foundation!! it gives me nice even coverage and a flawless face!! :) couldnt be happier! the brush it self looks sleek so people dont even know it was sooo cheap, another PLUS! ALSO, its AMAZINGLY SOFT!!! GO BUY NOW!!
This is amazing!
It's sooooo soft!
I use it to buff in my bronzer/ powder!
It's NEVER shed on me before.
I love it <3
Wow this brush is soft! I bought this because I needed a brush for mineral foundation and I'm not disappointed. A little shedding at first and not completely flat, but a great brush for the money. Wait for the studio line to go on sale and you can get it only for 1.50. I wish this brush had come with the mineral starter kit I got from E.L.F. instead of the horrible Total Face brush. Just goes to prove that E.L.F. products can be hit or miss so do your research before buying!
I can't rave enough about this brush. It airbrushes my Revlon Colorstay Foundation like MAC's 187. BUT faster and better. Then when I finished, I sprayed brush cleanser lightly on it, and swirled it on a towel, and it cleaned so easy that I thought I was dreaming... I almost pinched myself. Since I got 2 (after reading the reviews and being 50% off for 1.50 each) I use one for creams and liquids and the other one for powder based products. I Plan to get 2 more, one for powder alone (and leave the one I have now for blush etc) and one as backup. I found my does-it-all HG super high quality dirt cheap brush. I can't ask for more in life. The chemical-y scent faded away before a deep wash. And it's still 50% OFF!!! as of March 09/09
I absolutely love this product, its a great face brush. I bought this brush with their 50% off of their studio line so i got it for $1.50 I've bought other brushes for way more and its not this good. I recommend that if you're washing it you wash it with something mild like baby shampoo and also to condition it after. this helps in maintaining its softness. I didn't too like the packaging, but the brush did come with like a sleeve to help keep its shape. my bristles were even didn't have the uneven issue. I use this for a number of purposes...my mineral foundation, with highlight powder, my mineral veil, even for blush and contour powder. i have two i'm currently using and two that are there as backups. In total i'm very please with this product and i'll definitely recommend it. I've add it to my permanent collection along with my MAC, Bare Escentuals, Everyday Minerals etc.
I REALLY like this brush. It's so soft. Blends colors really nicely.
