Love this brush. It's made well and never sheds, it's gentle. I use it for applying an allover wash of shadow rather than using it as a blending/crease brush. It definitely diffuses shadow nicely.

I totally agree with the poster below, i dont love this as a blending brush (its to dense and small) but its GREAT as a crease brush or highlighting the inner corner of your eye. I think i bought it for like a $1 a few years ago, and it never sheds.

Would def repurchase.

Okay, while I don't love this as a blending brush, I absolutely love it as a crease brush with more dramatic looks! It really picks up the color of the shadow. Will continue to repurchase for this purpose. I have also not noticed any shedding like I usually do with the standard E.L.F. brushes,.

I like this brush and the price is soo cheap! It blends my shadows well except sometimes it does the job a little too well. This probably has to do with me more then the brush though.

This is my Holy Grail when it comes to eyeshadow. I use it for every aspect of my eyeshadow. You can apply heavily, lightly, blend smoothly.. this little brush is everything and more.

This is a pretty impressive brush considering it's their essential line, which only costs one dollar. It's very soft , but does shed after a couple of washes, but it's not a big deal to purchase these multiple times since they are only one dollar. I have about five of these right now, and I love them for crease colors and blending out my eyeshadows.

I would categorize this more as a big crease brush, rather than a blending brush. It's very dense and compact. It's nothing like the mac 224 (which I thought it would be because the E.L.F. website had a misleading picture at the time). I personally prefer that kind of fluffy, dome shaped, tapered brush with long bristles for blending.

This I use more for sort of "buffing" out a crease color, or buffing lightly at the edges, rather than blend. You do have to be careful with this because it is so dense it can end up dragging too much of the color and making a mess.
It can also be used for placing lighter crease colors, but again, because of the size: be careful or it will go everywhere!

As far as quality I experienced no shedding or bleeding, but I will say it is a bit scratchy.

I would say to look up decent pictures and videos of this to get a good idea of the size and shape of this brush. If you think this looks like a brush you can work with, you should get it because even if it is not crazy soft, its a really good value.

I bought 2 of these: One for blending out and softening out hard lines in my eye shadow and blending them together and one for contouring the sides of my nose.
These brushes are rubbish! They shed like crazy even after washing several times. And forget about using them to contour the sides of your nose, one stray hair will find its way into your eyeball, guarantee it, which is a painful nightmare for those of who who wear contacts. You might not see any hairs but step up close to the mirror after and you will see the hairs all over your nose, cheeks and corners of your eyes. No thank you, I don't have the patience or the time to deal with stray hairs on my face from low quality brushes.
You get what you for pay and I paid one dollar (I'm from the UK in the States right now), USD, for these. Into the bin these went. I'm steering clear of ELF brushes forever, what a waste of money.

I really like this brush! It does the job well with blending -- works well with urban decay eyeshadows and tartlette palette. I noticed the reviews stated that it sheds a lot, but I haven't had any problems with this brush. The bristles are also soft -- overall, well worth the price. Picks up eyeshadow color and is great at creating a "gradient" softer look to blend the eyeshadows together (thus doing its purpose very well). I use this brush every day.

I bought this brush since I was quite impressed with the concealer brush. I do not have any issues with this brush at all. It does what it is supposed to do. I find that it blends out my shadows with ease. The bristles are soft and yet have great direction. I also have the short bristled smudge brush which I use constantly. I spot clean the ends every week and then monthly I deep clean with baby shampoo They have not shed thus far. I have had them both for about eight months. I am a convert of elf. I had some high end brushes that my puppy destroyed last year so I have had to replace them. I now know that you do not have to spend a ton of money to get great brushes. I hope these hold up for quite some time. Even if they don't I would not be so begrudging to buy them again at the price point. I highly recommend!
