It's not the best brush in the world, but for only a dollar, it's worth it. Pretty soft, and a few hairs fall off every time I wash it but not really a big problem. It's an acceptable brush that you should get for travel but not something that you should depend on for everyday use. Really good for beginners though because it is somewhat soft and very cheap. :)
I got this brush because it was so cheap and i figured if i didn't like it well it's just a dollar so it won't hurt.....but damn i was not expecting what i got the brush was totally different 4rm da pic i didn't even wanna use it so i gave it away....like if someone uses it dat's fine because different things work 4 different people but this was just not working 4 me
Not a fan of this brush. Scratchy, coarse, and it bleeds, although it's held its shape fairly well. I have conditioned the bristles with conditioner specifically for dry hair and it feels a little better, but I still don't reach for it except to clean up any spilled powder.
I have to agree with everyone else. This brush may appear soft at first but once you wash it, it becomes coarse, curly and brittle. It will also shed too. I suppose you could use to to apply setting powder all over but it just doesn't feel that nice on the skin.
I bought the Professional Total Face Brush but that won't really matter considering my review. This brush sheds like crazy so I won't be repurchasing. At least it was only $1.
So far I've only taken this out of the package and washed it. I get my dollar ELF brushes at Dollar General. They don't have any makeup, just the original line's tools. So far this one and the bronze/blush brush, the 2 that are dyed reddish BLEED LIKE CRAZY when washed. And their hair stands out every which way. I'm a little leery sticking something on my face that bleeds like that, even if it will be dry by the time I use it. For a dollar it's ok.
So far I'm finding the Studio Line to have better brushes with the exception of the eye shadow brushes. The dollar line's eye brushes are AWESOME.
But for a dollar, I'll buy again assuming my face doesn't get weird after using this.
hmmm i really like this brush, for me its really soft and good for powder, i have to say that mine did brake, but i fixed it. hope this helps
Does the job in case of emergencies, but very harsh and scratchy. Glad I only bought two and paid $1 each during Xmas at Target.
I wasn't expecting much from the brush, I had already heard negative reviews. Thankfully, I didn't pay for it separately. Instead, two brushes were in my mineral kit. Everything that is said, is very much true. It's scratchy, it's itchy, it sheds, and it's flimsy. Even worse, the damn brush doesn't even fit in the mineral jars. Moving on, it is an attractive brush. Who wouldn't love those red bristles? But man, does it smell! It smells like oil, or a car repair shop. Very, off putting. Now, if you want to score big with E.L.F brushes, the studio line is the only way to go. I bought two, and they are perfection.
My mother bought me this brush spontaneously after being paid last year. The bristles feel a little bit scratchy and they shed. I spent more time picking hair off my face than blending.
Also I had this brush for about two or three weeks....I played around with it once or twice out of boredom...then one day during application, BAM! It just broke off. The fluffy part of the brush came off of its handle. I didn't even clean the brush yet, though I think it's safe to say that if I did, it probably would've broke off sooner due to E.L.F.'s shitty way of glueing their brushes.
In short: Don't buy this brush. I know the red coloring makes it look pretty, but my mother wasted like two dollars that could've been spent on something better. continued >>
