My previous angled eyeliner brush was by MAC, and while I liked that one a lot, I really needed a new one. It was old and frayed and didn't work well enough anymore for my gel eyeliner. I now use that one for my brows and it works for that.
I got this brush because I needed it in a pinch since my MAC one was failing. I just thought it would be okay as I had gotten other brushes from ELF and was disappointed. However, this brush turned out to be awesome. I actually like this one a lot better than I ever liked my MAC one (shh! don't tell anyone I said that). It's soft, stiff and precise for eyeliner. I can achieve a very thin line.
This is horrible at applying eyeliner for me. The only thing that saved it from a dumpster burial was that its an ok eyebrow brush, which I actually needed otherwise I'll stick with my MAC 263 for gel and cream liners, sometimes you really do get what you pay for!
Great eyeliner brush! It's really thin and dense which makes it easy to apply gel liner. I think it works best if you start out when it's clean for a more precise application. It's easy to work with and could use it to fill in your brows as well.
This is my go-to bush for brows, I've not ever used it for eyeliner so I cannot coment on how well it works for gel liner looks. I realiezed how much I love and use this brush as I tore up my living room trying to find it.
I use this brush in conjunction with my Milana brow kit, in medium and it gives me fantastic results. The brush is nice and stiff, has a good amoun of density, and it picks up the brow powder very well. I love the qaulity, I've yet to have the ferrel come loose, or bristles to fall out during washing or usage.
The brush comes in a clear plastic packing with an info card behind it, I like minmal packaging personally.
The brush itself is a lovely sort of matte/satin finish black, very sleek and elegent looking.
I will purchase another, just incase I ever lose my original.:)
This is another great brush from E.L.F.
I find that I can use this for many uses, including smudging eyeliner, sharpening up brow powder/liner, and for really making a defined crease application of a soft but dark eyeshadow.
Really easy to use and the price is great. This brand is my go-to for brushes, over other expensive brands. Highly recommended.
I bought this due to all the good reviews, but wow, I think this is the first time I've been so disappointed by a product with an overall rating over 4.
This brush is absolutely crappy - the ends do not taper together at the tip, it's much thicker (fatter?) than I expected. In fact, it's so wide and splayed that it's impossible to use it even on my eyebrows (I am pretty precise about my eyebrows, though). If I had more time, I'd try and upload a picture - it's amazingly bad.
For a cheaper alternative to the MAC, stila (my personal fave), etc angled liner brushes, get the Ecotools one. The only downsides are that the handle is a bit too long (hard to get into makeup bag, hitting the mirror for super myopic folks like myself before lasik), and the head of the brush is also a bit long. But you get much better quality, a finely tapered end, a thin profile, and good control.
This ELF brush is going straight in the trash. I can't think of any good use for it
The ELF professional line of brushes have a nice balanced feel to them. The ferrules are firmly attached unlike their regular line of brushes. I use this brush daily to line with shadow on the lashline (or to blend shadow over liner in order to add color/blend). I'm using well pigmented shadows from UD, BB, Lancome, MAC for this. Very satisfied. Works great + made its way into my daily brush stash over a year ago. Still going strong. Better quality than similar brushes I own from BB and Smashbox. Soft, smooth application is easy. I have had zero shedding. A must-buy at this price.
i use this everyday to fill in my eyebrows...you cant go wrong :)
I really wanted to love this brush the way so many other reviewers have as well! I was in need of a new eyeliner brush and wanted to try this one because of the price. However it's hard for me to get a straight line in one sweeps with my old brush. While I am drawing my line I will run out of liner! I have to get more gel liner a few times to finish my line. It creates a really thin line (not in one sweep) so it is good for tight lining if you are a patient person. I am returning this and going back for my old brush.
I absolutely love this brush for use with my gel and cream liners. I've yet to try MAC brushes, but I have tried angled brushes from Sonia Kashuk, Sephora, Sigma, and Stila and I am always reaching for this brush. I purchased it when the Studio line was relatively new and my complaint would be that the brush handle is far longer than necessary. However during a recent trip to Target, it looks like the handles have been shortened! This brush tip is firm enough to allow precise application, but not so firm that I can't create the flick at the end of my cat eye looks. Love it and at $3 it's a steal.
