After reading all the good reviews I decided to try this brush. At only 3 dollars at Target, not much to loose. The bristles are very soft indeed so that was a goods sign. When I started using it, my face turned out to be a big, black, hairy mess. This brush is shedding badly!!! After the first attent to use it, I washed out, thinking maybe it'll solve the problem. Well, it didn't. The shedding continued
so my brush ended up in the trash. My experience wasn't good with it at all. Not recommending it!

My HG brush. I use it mostly for my liquid foundation and pressed powders. The hair is so soft and thick. This brush is excellent quality and I have experienced no shedding. I love the flat top which makes it easier to buff and stipple on wet products. Great affordable price for such a high quality brush!

THIS BRUSH IS AWESOME. I had no real expectations for it. I mean elf is hit or miss and it was only 3 bucks. I just needed a powder brush. But this one is the best! I use it to apply liquid foundation and it works like a dream. My skin looks airbrushed. I have only had the brush a couple weeks and the handle is loose but some glue will fix that so I am not too put off by it. I really recommend this item.

This is a great budget brush. It is very dense, the bristles are extremely soft. I use it for liquid foundation, cream blush, blending out concealer and powder. It does not shed that much at all and even after a few washes it is in perfect condition. It blends out foundation nicely on the face and gives an even application, same with many other cream products and for powders. The only thing I do not like about this brush is that it is soo dense I feel like it soaks up too much of my foundation so it's wasting more. That's why I use my MAC 187 for my foundation, it doesn't soak up as much so I'll only be giving this brush a 3 because there are brushes that can do better. But I recommend this to anyone that doesn't want to spend $40+ on a brush and if you don't like it, hey it was only $3!

I've recently started using brushes to apply and blend my foundation and I picked this one at target for $3...just $3!!!! I almost assumed that it was going to shed and make my foundation application streaky. It was definitely worth the buy!! I pulled on the brush quite a few times and absolutely no shredding! And the bristles are amazingly soft. It blended so effortlessly. I am so impressed and so glad I got this!

I love it! It's soft, but really dense. I use it to stipple on my Almay Clear Complexion (liquid) foundation. It makes the foundation look so smooth and pretty on my face, and it's much quicker than using my fingers like I used to do. So worth the $3.00. I highly recommend it. Now I'm excited to try more of ELF's Studio Brushes.

Ok, I'm not totally sure if it's EXACTLY the same as my MAC 187, but it's 99% there, and for $3, I definitely prefer it!!! Stop buying expensive brushes and buy this! HGHGHGHGHGHGHG!!!!!!!!

This is my favorite brush. I use it for tinted moisturizer, foundation, powder, blush, and bronzer! This is the most versatile brush I have ever bought. Will definitely buy again.

I love this brush! This is one of the first brushes I have purchased and I use it for liquid foundation (loreal true match in n1) and I use the brush to stipple it onto my face. This brush gives me such a flawless, airbrushed look! This brush could be so much more expensive for the quality but even if it doesn't work for you its only $3! Great buy!

BEST. BRUSH. EVER. It simply cannot be beat (and this is coming from someone who usually uses MAC brushes).
First things first: This is one of the most versatile brushes that I own. It's great for buffing powders into the skin, blending liquid foundation (I prefer using this than most conventional foundation brushes), and applying blush and bronzer (especially creams). It's really nice if you tilt it to the side a little and use it to contour the hollows of your cheek bones as well!
The bristles on this brush are Taklon and extremely soft! The brush is very densely packed as well, which makes for excellent blending. I love dabbing my liquid foundation on my face, then using this brush to buff it in. It makes for the most flawless, air-brushed finish ever. I can't even apply liquid foundation with anything else now! I would pay over $30 for a brush of this quality!
I haven't noticed any shedding yet, but I will comment on the fact that if you're not careful when washing, the water will sink down and loosen the glue on this brush, causing it to come apart. This happened to me, but at only $3, I can comfortably afford another. How could you go wrong with something SO cheap and SO high quality?
E.L.F. products are hit or miss really, but they nailed it with this! I'd give it 10/5 if I could.

Just 10 minutes ago I placed another order for two new E.L.F Studio Powders Brushes! I am in complete love with these inexpensive brushes. I have had mine for about 1 1/2 to 2 years and it has been through intense wear and tear, stomped on, dropped in the sink water, went through the dryer, and it still works for my everyday liquid foundation. I rated this brush a 4 out of 5 for my overall rating due to the fact after two months (before it was dropped into water or stepped on) the head of the brush where the metal part conects to the bottom detached and it was depressing, but definitely not an issue trusty duct tape couldn't fix :P. This brush when unpackaged is extremely soft, and has synthetic bristles which I find doesn't hoard as much bacteria and non-synthetic bristles. The top of this brush is completely flat so it gives a perfect flawless finish. I wouldn't recommend putting the product directly on the brush and then buffing in the skin, I would dot the product where you want it and then buff it in, otherwise the brush might soak up some product and you'll end up using more than you should. This brush should be cleaned weekly with a mild soap like Johnson's and Johnson's baby soap, or a special shampoo for make up brushes. I have found no problems with this brush losing bristles. Also, this brush can be used for basically any make up application. I use it to paint on my face in all aspects, blush, bronzer, foundation (my foundation is super thick and concentrated and it still blends perfect), and setting powder. For $3 dollars how can you possibly go wrong!?!!?!? I love this product and would recommend it to anyone wanted a decent brush for an outrageously low price. (:

Very versatile and inexpensive! This brush can be used for liquid foundation, cream blush, bronzer, powder, anything! When you clean it, be sure to hold it down to prevent water from loosening the glue! Then again, it is only 3 dollars so it won't set you back too much if you ruin it and have to buy a new one!

I picked up this brush the other day while at Target after reading the reviews here. I must admit that I LOVE IT! It is theee best at applying liquid foundation. I have used it to apply my MUFE HD foundation sample that I received from Sephora. I was not liking the foundation much prior to applying it with this brush. Now I think I may go purchase a full size bottle!
It has not shed any and is super soft. I would like to try the complexion brush, as well. Thanks MUA'ers for recommending this awesome brush!

I LOOVE this brush! It is fantastic for applying liquid foundation, does a great job of blending it out to give an airbrushed look. I woudn't personally use this for powder, but it works great for liquid foundation. Easy to clean with a bit of baby shampoo. Drys fast when dryed. Only $3, there is really nothing to lose, I will be repurchasing this!

I first hated this brush because I was trying to use it as a powder brush. Later, I read the reviews here and used it with liquid foundation as a foundation brush. Loved it. It has everything that I'm looking for. I can't think about a single con. Thank you ELF for great brushes with affordable prices.

I LOOOOVE this product. It's the best way to apply liquid foundation - gives a flawless result every time. And it's perfect for applying powder with if you want full coverage. I recommend this to everyone I know - and seriously everybody can afford this! Go buy it - NOW! :-)

E.L.F's eye shadow brush is a good alternative brush to the bare minerals or mac brand. It works just as well for applying foundation, blush, and bronzer. I happen to have extremely sensitive skin and the bristles do not irritate or make my face red. My makeup goes on flawlessly and effortlessly.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Medium Brown Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
The best foundation brush PERIOD! I have a total of 4 and will buy more. 1 for my liquid foundation, 1 for highlighter, 1 for my setting powder, and 1 just in case! The bomb! Your only regret will be realizing how much money you've spent looking for your HG foundation brush!
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Dry, Fair, Neutral Hair: Blond, Straight, Medium Eyes: Blue

Whenever I go to the U.S., I always stop by Target to see what they have in the cosmetics area.
I decided to get a few E.L.F. makeup brushes for travelling as I figured if anything happened, it wouldn't be a big loss as they're so cheap.
This brush may be dirt cheap but its quality is superb and rivals the quality of MAC and other high end brushes.
I use this brush to apply my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish powder and it does a superb job. My skin looks smooth and polished.
The hair is firm and there's no shedding either.
If you're on a budget and want quality brushes, I'd suggest E.L.F. brushes.
