I used this brush all the time until I got one of ELF's studio face brushes. Then I gave it to my cat to play with because he loves it. LOL. It's ok, but not stellar. It seems scratchier than the Studio line. And I don't like the red dye that comes out every time you wash it. If I were you I'd spend the extra $2 and get yourself a Studio brush, your face will thank you.
This gets the job done and for only 1.00 who can beat that! I just dont like the feel of the fibers they feel a little too hard for the face but works as a back up whenever you need it.
From what I'm hearing and I have experienced myself, some elf brushes tend to have a certain smell. So this brush in particular leaves a smell on my face, but after a while it goes away. (Still, not a good thing) The handle did come off a few times. It sheds and the bristles are hard and pokey.
When I received this brush it had a dent in the metal part. I used it for my face powder and it wasn't tough on my skin. Not even a week later the head came off the handle. This is the worst brush.
WOW. Something is really off with the brush I got. When I got it, it was a little scratchy, but I washed and conditioned it and that took care of the scratchiness. However, as soon as I got the brush wet I noticed a weird burnt plastic smell, and the bristles got really poofy. Like, the bristles are the same shape and size as the ones on my Studio Kabuki Face Brush but not as densely packed. I'll try washing and conditioning again but I don't really know what I'll use this for.
def. hate this product, probably great for a beginner but i've since thrown mine away. i got it when i first started getting into makeup and that's probably the only person it's good for.
I HATE this brush. It is so scratchy it literally stings my face, and like other people have mentioned, I think its even too scratchy to use as a body brush. When I washed it, a lot of red dye came out of the bristles which immediately put me off. The bristles are very sparse and therfore doesn't pick up much product, then when you sweep the brush onto your skin the product disappears into the air as apposed to staying on your skin. The handle is terrible quality , and after I washed it a second time with lukewarm water and baby shampoo, the handle came off. I have nothing good to say about this.
Even though I wasn't expecting a great brush for the price, I was so shocked at the quality of this brush. I would definitely advise getting the complexion brush from their studio line instead for another $3, that is much better.
This is the first ELF brush that I bought, and it performs well for its price range!
First of all, it's really inexpensive but the bristles are very soft. I use it all the time. Good for beginners.
Also, it does not shed a lot and the bristles stay in place-- better than most cheap brushes out there.
Quite handy too, I can store it in my wristlet for instant touch-ups. Just wish they had a retractable version too.
Overall, a good buy for a cheap price.
most definitely for people who are just starting to use brushes or people who really don't care about quality.... because these brushes are not very soft, it's low quality, but that's pretty obvious if u look at their prices.
prickly to your skin and sheds like crazy. will not buy again
It is good for its price. Although I wish it was softer because I have sensitive skin and it could feel harsh against my skin when using. If you don't mind that and are attracted to the price...buy it. If your skin is sensitive, then I'd say keep looking. The brush will be used often, so I think I'll invest on something that's more friendly to my skin next time.
