I just got this brush a few days ago and I LOVE it! Its very inexpensive at $3, and I use WAY less face powder than usual because I don't have to swirl my brush. I literally just tap it in my product and it covers like a dream. I haven't tried it with liquid foundation and I'm not sure if I will because I have the Sonia Kashuk flat top brush, but as far as powder goes, it works sooo well, and for the price it can't be beat.
It took me a time to find out how I use this brush best for my own needs but now I LOVE IT! No need to talk about the quality .. it is super soft and has super dense bristles. Really a steal for only 3 Dollars! I already wanted to stock up on those .. but they are always sold out. No wonder! I currently only use it for my finishing powder but I want to use it for my foundation too (thats why I need a second one .. and maybe a third?)
BEST 3 dollars i have ever spent in my life... I absolutely LOVE this!!! It's super soft.. If you own eco tools.. you know that'd soft... now this is even softer!! I don't even know how that's possible... The flat top plus the denseness is really great for a full coverage look.. everything goes on so much smoother, you can apply liquid or dry makeup with this... I just love this so much. I had high expectations for this cause it had such great reviews... And I can really see why!
I LOVE YOU FLAT TOP POWDER BRUSH!!! :) Now just stop selling out, because I need to buy your twin brother for a backup. TIA.
Amazing brush, especially considering the reasonable price. I used to have a rocky relationship with powders as I hated the application (uneven, too cakey and fake) no matter what brush I used, but this brush helped me make peace with powders again :) I especially use this brush with MAC MSFN (wear it without any foundation for a light day look) and it creates a flawless finish. Bristles are very soft and I think that also helps with the even, non-cakey application besides feeling good on your face. I would buy again and actually am contemplating buying back-ups.
This brush is my favorite brush out of the ELF Studio, I now have 3 of these. This brush does wonders it is super soft and great quality. I use this brush for my powder, blush, and bronzer. I have to have this brush with me everywhere I go. This brush gives a flawless look , I will continue to buy more of these when they send me the 50% off emails!!!! this is when I take advantage get a pretty big haul!!!!
OMG! Talk about HG brush!!! I have only used this brush for applying my pressed powder thus far...but WOW! The finish is amazing. Looks almost airbrushed. I have 3 or 4 of these now, I lost count. I love how soft and dense the bristles are.I can stipple the powder on for extra coverage, or just swirl it on. I can't say enough about how wonderful this brush works, and I haven't even used it for all it's uses yet! I'm excited to use it with my liquid foundation, but not looking forward to all the wasted product that the bristles will soak up. I have ELF's Stippling brush, but haven't used it yet. Will be interesting to compare the two in that category. Like everyone says, just buy it! You will NOT be disappointed! It's a dream come true! Wait for a sale and you will be even happier. LOL
i use this brush for my bronzer only. i really like it and i will buy more. one thing thats annoying is the handle is starting to get loose.
I own several Elf Studio brushes, and I am pretty happy with them, but this brush in particular really stands out. It is soft and fluffy, very dense, and does not shed. Where this brush truly shines is foundation application. I use it for buffing on liquid or mousse foundations. It makes blending a breeze, and it gives a fabulous, flawless, airbrushed finish. I spritz my face and the brush lightly with MAC Fix+ or ELF Mist & Set, then dab a bit of the foundation on the back of my hand, tap the brush into it, and buff it onto face. Amazing. It is also very easy to clean, and has a nice professional quality appearance. I clean mine after each use with a daily brush cleaner spray, and then wash about once every 1-2 weeks as needed. I highly recommend this brush - for $3 you simply cannot beat it - and I will definitely repurchase if the need ever arises.
Edited: I've upgraded most of my brushes to MAC, but kept this one & still reach for it daily. It works well, is soft, and doesn't shed. It is perfect for stippling & buffing on foundations. There is nothing comparable (synthetic large flat-top) available in MAC's line currently, and most of the other higher-end versions I've seen are considerably smaller in size. This works so amazingly for $3 there's really no need to try others. continued >>
A really good brush to apply loose powders, powder foundations (much better than the ELF kabuki) and also very lightly pigmented blush (Nars Sex Appeal in my case). It's soft and dense enough to pick enough product, distributes the powders evenly. Maintains its shape after the washes and doesn't shed at all.
