It's soft, durable and works as any 30$ brush does. Can't ask for more at 3 bucks, really.

The handle broke right off almost as soon as I opened the package and plus, I doubt I'd find this particular brush very usual for me personally.

I like it. It's great to apply liquid foundations, BB creams, or especially cream blushes. It's soft, nicely designed, sturdy, and does its good. Reasonable price as well.

If you are just getting into makeup or you just want to add some brushes to your collection then this elf stipple brush is very nice to start with. I mostly use it to apply powder blush or if im in a hurry even a little highlighter. Its just the right size to fit into your hand. Not overly huge or bulky. It does annoy me that I can see how filthy it gets because of the white tips but thats why we clean our brushes regularly. I also use it for bronzer when im trying my attempts at contouring. E.L.F'S studio brushes are so nice for the price. It gets the job done and on top of that it looks good as well. I am thinking about ordering the large stipple brush to add on to my brush collection. Overall I'm giving this little drugstore gem a 4 out of 5 lippys.

(For the record, maybe I lucked out, but my brush is sturdy and does not shed.)

To the reviewers who found this brush unsuitable for a certain purpose, I suggest try something else! This seems paradoxical but I think that this brush is both very specific but also very versatile. For me, this brush took some trial and error to understand its best capacities, but what products it is meant for, it does well.

I think this brush is very specific to product. I can totally agree that this brush might stink at blending out a blemish concealer, for example. Because generally, if I'm using a blemish concealer, I want coverage in a very specific spot and the duo fibers of this brush will diffuse it out too much. I wouldn't use it for eye shadow, because... hello, it's huge for an eye brush.

So what products make this little brush sing? (here's where that versatility point comes in) I think this guy's forte is pretty much any face product that requires a diffused, blended OUT look. Of course, use yours in whatever capacity you want, but my impression is that this brush is specifically meant for cream blushes, highlights, and things of that like. And I do think it does a great job at that! I like to blot/stipple on my hand first, to be sure I don't apply to much at first. I have also used to help blend out powder blushes after applying them with a blush brush.

I can agree that this brush may seem pokey at first, especially compared to the other ELF studio brushes. But I don't think it's fair to compare this brush to a typical face brush. This brush wouldn't perform well if the longer (white) bristles were not stiff. If those bristles were as soft and pliable as the short bristles, then this might just be a tiny, very unevenly cut powder brush. Potential buyers-- don't worry, the longer bristles are not as uncomfortably stiff, especially when used on the cheeks or the rest of the face (versus thinner skin like under eye and eyelids) this does not feel pokey.

Would I recommend this to absolutely everyone and their dog? No, simply because this is a good add on brush to an already existing basic set, and you have to willing to play with it a little to get it to sing for you. I would definitely recommend this to someone who is looking to effectively blend cream bronzer, highlight or blush.

Tiny, the duo fiber brushes pick up and apply product like a dream, multipurpose, super soft, fits perfectly into any blush pan. I just love this tiny brush and I want to get more of these.

I love E.L.F makeup brushes but this is the only one I do not even like in a pinch. I purchased this brush twice because it broke then I purchased it again and it broke again . I found other E.L.F makeup brushes that I love so if one of their brushes does not win me over it is okay with me you can't win them all.
