I really like this brush! It was only 1 dollar! Yes, you could pick at every little thing about it, and yes there are nicer brushes out there but for the price this is a great little brush! It gets the job done, it's great for putting on eyeshadow. Do you really need a 20 dollar brush just to put eyeshadow on? I love elf brushes!

am I getting a bad batch here?Upon buying this brush my expectation was not high considering the price...but I would have to give bad ratings because :
1. it's prickly!
2. doesnt pick up color well enough
3. shedding after only 2 washes..the shedding is become worst and worst each time I clean it, I expect a full breakdown soon :(

so what does this brush do anyway, other than falling apart before my eyes?well, basically nothing (for me, anyway). will not buy it again, though it is cheap, but no use to it, what's the point?

such a fan of this brush.deposits color really well,and i can use it for a wash or to define my crease.i bought one originally just to try,but after a few weeks of use i went back to buy a few more.the only reasons i didn't give it five lippies are that one of my 3 shed a tiny bit the first time i washed it.also,i don't know how they'll hold up over time,but for $1 it won't be a big deal to replace.

Sorry to rain on the parade, but I am not fond of this brush. I waited to write a review after using the brush for almost a year. It just doesn't pack on enough color for me. The brush is too full and not stiff enough. It's good if you want a wash of color on the lid, but that's it.
It's also too big for my eyelid and I can't get precise enough application on the inner corners. Aside from that, though, it's sturdy with soft bristles and I haven't had shedding issues with any of the four I own. I wouldn't purchase again because I have so many brushes that will do the same job as this. I like that it's cheap, but doesn't look it and I prefer it over the SK one, which always prickles my eyelid.

I use this to apply shadow to the lid, and for that purpose, it doesn't do too bad a job. Certainly not perfection, but not complaining for a whole whopping $1 spent.

The other elf $1 brushes I didn't like, but this one was great. (the black studio brushes which are $3 are great also). It worked great for a defined crease when applying shadow. I hate when you use a bad crease brush and the color basically overblends and it looks like you're wearing one color of shadow. But this doesn't do that! And only $1!

It is very sturdy and dense, which makes packing colour onto the lid easy. But it is a little too thick and too big for my taste.

It's an okay-brush for the money.

EDIT: I find myself using this more often these days (02/2012) and I do really like it now for applying a wash of colour. It is also really good at blending the edges when you hold it vertically! This is why I changed my rating from 3 to 4.

This brush is very soft. Has the right firmness needed to apply eyeshadow. It also picks up the product well. Experienced a little shedding but for the price, it's one heck of a deal.

This is probably one the best eyeshadow brush out there (regardless of price). I've had this brush for about 1 year now, never had a problem with shedding.
