I can't say much more about this than has already been said. I LOVE this brush. I have two and may buy another, if I have a coupon. I use it for my liquid foundation, to stipple and buff. I find that no matter how much I tap out, this brush packs too much powder for me. The finish, no matter what type of liquid foundation, is always gorgeous. And, it is a v pretty brush.
This brush has not shed on me, and I wash my brushes almost daily. My second brush's handle came unglued pretty quickly. I glued it back together w gorilla glue and have had no more problems with gorilla glue.
This brush is definitely worth your time.
Ok, so I've always read about ladies using powder brushes as foundation brushes on this board, and I thought they were crazy, lol. I tried to visualize just how that would work, and could only picture globs of liquid foundation caking up a brush, and that would not make for a good application. So, after reading so many good things about this powder brush, I picked one up from Target and used it for powder. It is soooo soft and works really well. And it's $3 so how can you go wrong?!Anyhow, I kept looking at it each morning after applying my powder and asking myself how the heck it would work for foundation, and decided to just give it a try one day. I picked up a new one from Target and used it to apply my Colorstay whipped foundation. OMG. Perfection. I am so happy to say that I was so wrong! It is so easy to apply with this brush! It took me no time to pick up the technique because it was just so easy, self explanatory really. And the best part...it took half the time of using sponges, flat foundation brushes, or fingers. It buffed away lots of imperfections that I normally would have to go back and use concealer on, so I used much less of that too. When I was done, I looked at the brush, and there was next to nothing on it-no caking, no mess. And no shedding. Awesome! HG brush for foundation AND powders!
I've always been a skeptic of foundation brushes, but after hearing countless YouTube gurus raving about this (powder!) brush being the perfect foundation brush, I figured I'd give it a try. After all, it's only $3!! I ended up loving it, I use it everyday to apply my foundation, and it's great! No streaking, and makes for really great coverage. It has a bit of a shedding problem, but I can over look that. Even if it only lasts me 3 or 4 months, at $3 it wouldn't be a big deal to just buy another one.
I ADORE THIS PRODUCT ! I USE IT AS A FOUNDATION BRUSH, MIND YOU I ONLY USE LIQUID AND IT COMES OUT FLAWLESS EVERY SINGLE TIME ! I WET THE TPS OF THE BRUSH A BIT FOR A SMOOTHER APPLICATION BUT EVEN IF I USE IT DRY; RESULTS ARE STILL AMAZING. BETTER THAN ANY STIPPLING BRUSH !
As long as E.L.F keeps making these, I will never be without them! For $3, everyone should have one! It's so multi-purpose. It can be used for wet and dry products. I use it mainly for my MAC cremeblend blushes and it works wonderfully! It picks up enough product and distributes so evenly and flawlessly. I've had this for about 6 months now and have used it everyday and clean it very often and it has not shed a hair. I'm impressed!
I am delighted with this!!! I love that it is dense and firm, but soft and not scratchy. It's so versatile: wonderful with both wet and dry products. I don't wear powders, but my teenage sister does, and swears by it for a perfect finish.
Using it solely with liquids, I'm finding it gives flawless, even, fool-proof coverage. It's enabled me to start wearing EL Doublewear again, using about a third of the product that I'd normally have used when 'painting' with a regular foundation brush! I can apply it extremely quickly, stippling without need for further buffing or blending, and it looks more lightweight and natural than ever. My sister, on the other hand, likes full coverage. And the brush also delivers that finish with ease.
I'm already planning on buying a backup or two - I've not had better results with brushes that have cost nearly ten times the price.
PROS: feels lovely on skin, delivers flawless results, can be used with liquids and powders, picks up just the right amount of product, economical (not only is it dirt cheap to purchase, but it also doesn't seem to 'drink up' my foundation when I'm dipping the brush in), black bristles don't get grotty looking as quickly as natural colour ones, can give lighter more natural coverage (if desired) than regular foundation brushes
CONS: I really can't think of any!
This brush is amazing, great application with liquid foundation, powder, blush and bronzer! The bristles are super soft and it makes your face look flawless. You can definitely achieve full coverage foundation with this :) I own 2 and love it to bits
1. Packaging. Hell, it's a brush! Does packaging really matter? I DIDN'T THINK SO!!
2. Quality: This brush is pretty amazing. Works well on wet or dry products. I use it for liquid foundation. It is soft and dense and distributes foundation evenly on the skin. The only issue I have encountered with this brush as well as with most of the ELF Brushes (even the studio line) is that the brush becomes loose and comes off of the handle. This has happened to 2 of the brushes as I have repurchased this brush many times. I find that I pretty much dont care if the handle comes off..lol..I end up using it as a kabuki!!! LOL. This brush rocks!
I love this brush for foundation if i had known about this brush prior to the sigma flat top kabuki i would of never gotten the sigma brush although its a little less dense it works wonders with foundation and does not soak up alot of product. It also doesnt look as dirt as it the lighter sigma counterpart. and at just $3 cant beat it :D
this brush is one of my fav! i like how the studio line brushes are black, very sleek. it cost me 3$ and i was able to find it at target. it comes with a plastic covering so i can throw it into my makeup bag and not worry about it picking up too much bacteria on the brush head. i use it mainly for my milani powder foundation and it picks up enough the first time. ladies this is not a floppy powder brush, more stiff and tighter bristles. i like my powder brushes to be like this so its a win for me. thank you elf!!!!!
