OMG! Found this little gem at my local Target! I was seriously contemplating buying this brush off the ELF website, but as I was wandering the aisles of Target, I came across this (it was the last one on the shelf btw) & was so pleasantly surprised. Used it for liquid foundation, buffed it into my face like a dream. continued >>
Oh, studio powder brush how do I love thee. Let me count the ways. 1: You work so flawlessly with my liquid foundation, 2: You make powder application easy and dare I say darn near perfect,3: You are so cheap but so very soft. All joking aside this is my go to brush for applying anything to my face, plus it is super easy to clean. So far I have three and I plan on buying more once another sale pops up. Only downsides is that 1: when applying liquid foundation or trying to stipple with this brush you use a lot more product cause the brush will soak it up. 2: Over time it starts getting loose from the handle which can be a real bother.
Above and beyond. Great quality, soft bristles, dense. Can be used for liquid foundation, powder foundation, mineral foundation, any types of priming or setting powders, and even to buff out blush or bronzer. Multifunctional.
I bought a few E.L.F. brushes during their half-off Studio sale solely based on the glowing reviews here. I have to say that this powder brush is my favorite of the lot.
This brush has changed the way my liquid foundation looks, feels, and applies. I've been using it for a week and it's HG all over the place.
Before using this brush I was using my fingers, so with the brush I have to use more product and take more time with the application but the coverage is so good that I don't use as much concealer or setting powder. Stippling liquid foundation with this brush gives the most wonderful finish, I really haven't seen anything like it.
I've used it once or twice for blush and it really picks up the powder, this brush is very dense. It holds up well to washing. I haven't experienced any parts of the brush falling apart that other reviews mention.
I paid $1.50 for it but it's definitely worth the full price of $3, probably even more. If you wear liquid foundation you need to at least try this brush.
In the past, I've always put off buying this brush because I heard terrible things about the shipping/service of the ELF website. It wasn't until last week that I spied this at my local Target and snagged the last one. I washed this brush with no problems, it didn't shed, bleed or smell funny. I used it for foundation the next day and it was very gentle on my face and blended like a dream. Unfortunately, I noticed that my brush had a bit of glue residue at the tips of say......20 brush hairs at the edge of the brush, so the majority of the hairs were just fine, but I could not get the glue off. The packaging was not that great, it is simply cased in a plastic pouch that isn't sealed and it kind of warps the brush head a little bit, but that can be fixed after washing. For the bargain price of $3, I'll be picking up a few more of these so I can switch them out while I wash/dry the other ones. (I also love this for powder and bronzer!)
This brush is awesome! I use it to put on my powder foundation and it picks up a lot! I already cleaned the brush once and it didn't shed much. I'm thinking of getting another one just because it's such a great brush!
I have had this brush for over a year now and I use it at least 4 time a week. I must say, the quality is excellent for the price. There has been minimal shedding and it's still super soft. You have to clean it regularly, about every 2-3 uses. But it has been my favorite brush for face powders and powder foundations. I think I'll get a couple more with my next ELF order.
HOLY GRAIL!!!!! Love love love this brush, I have six of these, so I don't have to clean them all the time and have a fresh one ready! Amazing for liquid foundation application, also powder, and great for bronzer also. Too big for contour IMHO. Brush is very densely packed and picks up lots of powder. I have had a couple of the handles come loose and I reglued them but that didn't bother me because I love the brush so much~ I have always gotten in on 50% or 55% off specials so these have cost me about $1,50 each which makes them even better in my book.....if you are ordering ELF get at least ONE of these to try, I promise you will love it~
This is a really dense brush. No shedding. No strong smell. No bleeding. I use it to apply liquid foundation. It applies easily and blends easily. It's really cheap if you use a coupon code. However, the brush handle comes loose a few times. But nothing super glue can't fix. Amazing. :)
Not sure I'd use this for powder, but I use it every single day for stippling foundation. I have yet to purchase ELF's new duo fiber brush, but this works amazing for me!
