Hands down, this is my absolute favorite make up brush. Who would have thought a $3 brush could do such an amazing job? I love this brush more than the Bare Minerals brushes that came with the kit. It retains its shape and never sheds - even after washing.
I own 2 - 1 for liquid make up and the other for my mineral foundations.
When I use liquid foundation, it glides the makeup on and makes it look beautiful. It give an almost airbrushed quality to it.
With mineral foundation, the brush picks up just the right amount of powder. It buffs and blends the powder perfectly.
I will definitely purchase again if I need to.
At 22 and my first set of makeup brushes, I love love LOVE this brush! Goes on smoothly and even, such a soft brush. Love the flat top.
Well I have to say that this brush is absolutely amazing! I've seen so many beauty gurus reccomend it on youtube, so i just had to try it! I loveee it! it glydes my foundation on so smoothly! I love the way the bristles move and it is also so very soft! Plus, it was only $3.00. I honestly like this brush much more than my sedona lace one! All of the bristles of my other brushes came off and stuck to my face. I have yet to experience that with this brush! The top is also perfectly flat. It also works very well for my bronzer. And it get around my eyes and nose perfectly!
This is an incredibly versatile product. I have several of them that I use with powder, liquid or creme foundation, bronzer ... etc. At $3 its a great value and preforms well. It applies product very evenly and when used with liquid or creme foundation it blends well. Also very easy to clean I don't know about the E.L.F. brand brush cleaner but with the Sephora daily brush cleaner it doesn't really hold on to excess product. I knocked off one lippie because it does shed but if I get 6 months out of a $3 brush I'm more than thrilled.
I purchased this brush with the sole intention of using it for powder application as the name implies. I used it once for powder, and actually prefer using the E.L.F. complection brush for that purpose. But I digress... I saw some tutorials on YouTube wherein this brush was used for liquid foundation application and so I decided to try that. Wow!!! I've used it with both liquid and cream and it's wonderful! I'm especially happy with the way it applies the cream, and I have to say that I have been using a FRACTION of what I was using before. This brush puts my Beauty Blender to shame! I'm definitely going to purchase 1 or 2 more as back-ups. The brush is so inexpensive, great quality, provides a beautiful "air-brushed" finish, and is saving me money on my liquid products. Can't beat it!
great brush applys blush and liquid foundation like a dream, but the handles are loose but all i do is reglue the handle . great brush 3 bucks cant beat THAT. I HAVE 2 LUV THEM.
Soft, fluffy, full. its a great quality brush, although the handle has come loose, but hasn't broken off yet. I think its great for patting on my L'Oreal True Match pressed powder. Gives even coverage and I can buff the brush over my skin for a more blended look. Thanks, ELF:)
For the price you can't go wrong. Its dirt cheap, and I can tell. The glue starts to unstick and the handle on mine is very loose. I didn't expect the quality to be that great... and although it is a powder brush, it doesn't apply my powder that evenly. It doesn't seem to pick up pressed powder that well. But I guess overall it gets the job semi done. For me, I'd rather save the 3 bucks and put it towards a better quality brush.
The quality of this brush is great, and so is the price!
I like to use this for liquid and cream foundations, I just stipple it around and buff it in. I prefer this over the mac 187 for liquid and cream foundations.
For powder (any kind of powder: foundation, loose powder, pressed setting powder...) it doesn't seem to work that great, would be better with a fluffy or kabuki brush.
Overall it's a nice brush and for the price you can't go wrong!
This is a great brush, especially for the price. Gives more coverage than a kabuki brush.
