Works alright, I love the size of it. It is pretty scratchy on the eyelids though. Only $1, whaddaya expect?

I recently ordered this brush from the E.L.F site along with the two others (the eyelash and brow wand, and the eyeshadow brush.) which I will be doing reviews on.
~ very soft and fluffy bristles ~ doesn't scratch the lid
~ no shedding.. yet ~ picks up colors nicely
~ blends like a dream ~ fits nicely into crease
This brush works just as well as my MAC 217 I bought from Macy's. I think I like this brush just a little bit more because this does the exact same thing for a lower price. I'm a college student on a budget, so I'll definitely be purchasing another one of these.

Yes! I have nothing to compare this to since I've never used a blending brush before but I love it. I use it every since day to apply build-able color in my crease and in my outer corners. Doesn't pick up/apply too much and buffs everything out avoiding harsh lines. I recommend this!

I bought 2 of these brushes and I guess I got lucky because mine are really soft and blend wonderfully. They are also good for my crease area as well and I use it in the socket and it doesn't hurt at all. I also use them to blend my crease shadow with my brow bone shadow I go in little circles and it blends the colours so easily. I got 2 because I figure when one is dirty I have the other one and I'm glad I did because they work well and for me do not irritate my sensitive skin. It blends my shadows with no problems whatsoever and mine do not shed. I guess I got lucky but I have to rate it 5 lippie's because for the price and quality of the ones I purchased are very good. Recommended!

This is the worst shedding brush I have ever used. Which is such a shame because the price is so enticing and I actually find the brush itself has pretty soft bristles that I don't personally find scratchy and it really can do a very nice job of blending eye shadows. HOWEVER, any time I've used it to blend (and I've given it so many chances over the last few months) it leaves tiny bristles and pieces of bristles all over my eyelid and stuck in my makeup which then smudges the makeup off when you try to remove them - they won't just be brushed away easily.
I've washed this brush so many times now hoping that at some point surely the shedding would stop and all of the loose bristles will have come out by now but it really seems that the shedding is just endless. Maybe the glue used or the ferrule just can't hack it - which is why it's so nice and cheap. Anyway, had the potential to be a decent brush for a steal of a price but the incessant shedding is a serious dealbreaker and basically renders it useless for applying or blending makeup.
There are other E.L.F. eye brushes worth buying, though they're in the Studio line with the black handles - specifically the Eyeshadow "C" Brush, one called the Contour Brush that's basically a little dome crease brush, and the Small Angled Brush for applying eyeliner or brow color. I'd definitely recommend those and they don't cost that much more.

I have the $1 blending brush from the essentials line. purchased it from my local target. I guess you get what you paid for,the brush on my eyelid is pretty scratchy. The bristle is not as soft as the studio line brush but on the good side with weekly washing since I got it for almost a month it never sheds. Will not repurchase.

You get what you pay for.. It sheds a lot and doesn't blend eyeshadow very well.. It's better for setting powder under your eyes and that's it

This is a really good brush! It's very soft and applies, and blends, eyeshadow seamlessly. It applies like a much more expensive brush. I am very pleased with this purchase and will be purchasing more.

It's a pretty good brush, it shed a lot when I first bought it but after washing it I haven't had that problem any more..... I think I might have just gotten a defective one since the other reviewers said that thy didn't have any problem.

Great brush for the price. Very soft and no shedding. Overall a good blending brush.
