I seriously don't understand the hype about this brush. Yes, it's soft, average quality and sleek, but i just never find myself reaching for this. I don't like it for foundation, since it leaves my skin really streaky, and I don't like this for powder because i find that its hard to get an even coverage with this since it doesn't glide over the skin in a comfortable way.
If you want an amazing inexpensive brush for you face powder - go for the Elf studio complexion brush instead, which applies powder a lot more evenly an glides like a dream over you skin.
I am very disappointed with the brush. The handle fell off pretty fast and I didnt get it wet. I don't know if I got a bad one but this has happened to another studio brush I brought from elf too. I didn't like it for foundation much actually and it was ok for powder,but I wouldn't buy it again because of the handle issue.
this is hands down the best brush for applying liquid foundation... i will NEVER be without it! i used to use ecotools rectractable foundation brush or sonia kashuk pointed foundation brush..and i didnt realize how much of my foundation was being absorbed by the bristles. i was going through foundation so fast, and also it took me a long time to apply my foundation with those brushes. with the elf brush, the foundation actually goes on my face instead of getting stuck on the brush. therefore i save product and time..also the brush is easier to clean. this is the only brush i will use from now on!
I've had my Elf powder brush for about a year now- it is my go-to for applying my powder to set my foundation. I have also used it to blend foundation when my other face brushes are dirty and it works great for that too. I also use it after I apply bronzer/blush to soften and diffuse the color. It's super soft, washes up well and doesn't shed. I'm makeup junkie but I refuse to spend a lot of money on expensive brushes, so at $3 this is something you should definitely invest in.
Amazing brush for the price! I would definitely repurchase if I lost this little one.
I'm new to makeup, so I researched a ton of foundation application methods before trying this brush. So glad I did! It's awesome! I use less foundation than with a sponge, & the coverage is great. Looks airbrushed. It did take a few times to get used to it & to learn. Definitely recommend this, just bought one for my mom. And such a great deal!
I love this brush for either liquid or powder foundation. It's so dense and soft, by far the best brush they make. PLUS it's only $3!!! Wouldn't hurt to try it out
I bought another one of these and it seems less dense and the handle is shorter. Still very lovely
I use this brush to put on my liquid foundation and occasionally for powder. It's a very soft, sleek looking brush. What I find remarkable about this particular brush is that it doesn't absorb my foundation into it's bristles. Most of my foundation and stippling brushes absorb my liquid foundation resulting in wasted product. This isn't the case with this little gem. It applies my foundation evenly and leaves me looking smooth and flawless. I would and have recommended to friends and family
I LOVE this Brush. I use it for Liquid and Powder. It works wonderful for either. I had this Brush for 2 Years before it fell apart which is amazing for it only having been $3. I immediately bought 2 more. I have expensive MAC Brushes, Sigma Brushes & just regular Brushes from here & there, but I find myself picking up this one ALWAYS. It's pretty Soft and it stays Soft after washing unlike a lot of other Brushes I've had. You really can't go wrong for $3 with this Brush.
