I am a pretty big fan of most of e.l.f.'s Studio line brushes. I cannot live without the complexion brush and the blush brush. This one, however, was surprisingly disappointing. I initially bought three of these by accident. I was intending on buying the small stipple brush, which has really good reviews here on MakeupAlley, but got this instead. The bristles on this brush are relatively soft, but very sparse, so not useful for foundation at all. They are also very splayed, if that makes sense, so I can't use it for things that I need a light hand with, like contouring, because it's not very precise. I can't use it for bronzer because it's not big enough, and I can't use it for highlight either, for obvious reasons. So I gave one of them away and kept two for blending out face makeup that's too harsh and for applying a touch of blush on those "no-makeup" days. It does a good job for that, but I don't think it's a good brush, and here's why.I'm not sure if it is a crazy coincidence that I got two (maybe three) duds, but this brush sheds like CRAZY during washes, and I am very gentle with my brushes. Not only that, but for BOTH of my brushes, I tugged at the tip of the bristles very lightly to get water out during washing (which I do ALL the time with my other brushes, most of which are from the same brand, with nothing bad happening) and the entire brush-head popped off! And I don't mean the ferrule, which I could superglue back on, I mean only the bristles. I was really disappointed by this brush, so I threw mine out. Still giving it two stars with the hope that the brushes I got were just different from everyone else's. I really hope e.l.f. fixes their quality control problem.

This brush is not very dense so its not good for foundation. I use this as a blush brush since its soft. I don't like elf brushes because the handle always break from the brush end. Elf brushes are not worth it, I rather spend more money on quality brushes to last long term.

My absolute favourite brush ever for applying foundation/BB cream. Super soft hairs that never shed even after a million washings, sturdy handle. Gives you a light sheer coverage and blends perfectly.The hairs could be a little shorter, which would allow less movement and more control, but it still this wins as the best face brush I've ever used.

I picked up an ELF stipple brush with one of my online order a few years back. My intended purpose for this brush was to stipple power blush. After using it for a few years, I must say it's perfect for my needs.Since the past few years, I've been doing mostly natural makeup. So I only use very light pink or peach power blush to add some color to my washed out pale face. My old blush brush pack on too much color for my age. The stipple brush is not too stiff, and just soft enough. It picks up just the right amount or blush. With a light hand in gentle stippling action, it takes but a second to do the blush. Never have to worry about the clown look, never have to tone down with power. Since my first stipple, I've purchased a few more so I can rotate them after washing. Great buy at 50% off online.

Don't like this one at all. Bristles are way too long and my foundations wasn't setting easily, it would have taken forever to get rid of the lines of foundations that were not blending, don't have time for that. The only Elf brush I don't like so far. Should have gotten the other one with shorter bristles, might have worked better.

This brush works okay, but there really are better ones. My real techniques expert face brush replaced this in an instant, now it sits in a draw somewhere. I generally like a lot of elf brushes, but this one just didn't seem to work for me. The bristles are too long and not dense enough to provide a nice smooth application. Also, after washing it a few times the handle because rickety and I noticed a lot of shedding (sometimes whilst I was using it on my face). Overall, it's not dreadful, but it's definitely not the best either.

I absolutely love this brush. It's cheap, does the job of applying liquid base make up evenly with a airbrushed finish. One minus point to the fact that it slightly go a bit out of shape after washing. Only $3 for such a functional brush, hurry go grab it!

This brush is absolutely phenomenal, especially for the price! I bought two of these almost a year ago and I love them! They retail at $3 on the ELF website but ELF is always running sales and you can get them even cheaper than that sometimes. This brush gives a very nice application that never looks cakey. Though you may have to spend a little more time blending to make sure everything looks right, the end result is always worth it. I will always have a few of these in my collection.If you are wanting to try a stipplng brush, definitely grab this and give it a try!
