This brush has many uses, but it isn't amazing at them. It can be used at different angles for different purposes. However, it is not for eyeliner, because it is too thick and not dense enough. I tried it to highlight (okay), put eyeshadow on the lid (not very good), use it in the crease (not bad), on the lower lashline (pretty good), and use it for brows (very good). It is rather soft, but not very dense. As with most elf essential brushes, the metal part fell off the handle, but this is easy to fix. I don't use this brush that often and wouldn't buy it again, but if you're looking for a cheap ($1), multipurpose eye brush, then try it out! :)

I have quite a severe hooded eye, so most brushes recommended for "regular" eyes just don't work on my eye shape (that includes the usual shaders, blenders and crease brushes). I've found this one, quite to my surprise, works extremely well for my eye shape. I can use it to apply solid colour over the lid, but still be able to get to the inner corners (too big of a brush just won't do it). Changing the brush angle, I can also use it to apply colour loosely to the outer v and crease, go over with tapered blender, and build up colour intensity upwards in the crease with the e.l.f brush, using it both horizontally for depth in and just slightly above the crease, and vertically in the crease for added height to help the hooded eye. The beauty is all in the angles of it. It can be used at a diagonal angle for inner eye highlight, vertically to sweep colour across the lid, horizontally for the crease, or in a controlled patting motion using more of the flat tip for more intense lid colour, changing up the angle as needed.
For the price, I honestly wasn't expecting much, I put it in my cart at the last minute as a spare brush for when my others were still wet or packed away, however, I find myself reaching for this more than a lot of other brushes.
I can see it may not be everyone's cup of tea if you're used to different application methods, but it does have some practical uses for the right application. But for the price, it's not a huge risk if it turns out you're not a fan.

This brush is terrible. I don't understand the ratings? It is very scrathcy, extremely flimsy, does not pick up enough color, whatever is manages to pickup, it kind of drags and makes a mess under the eyes. There are tons of other brushes for $1 (seriously, ANY brush will be better) that are of better quality. This brush also sheds. Garbage. No worth even a penny. Do not buy!

I agree with kr1sti below. I bought this because of the ratings here, but the brush is very scratchy. Not something I would use on my eyes! It also doesn't pick up enough product. At least I didn't waste a lot of money since it was only a few dollars.

I've been looking for a super soft yet dense brush to apply eye shadow to my lower lashline. My eyes get irritated very easily from scratchy brushes and I have never found a brush that could do this one task well without poking the delicate skin. I came across this Elf brush at Target and saw that the shape was just right for what I needed. It turns out this is one of the softest non-synthetic drugstore brushes I've ever used. It's not pokey at all and it works extremely well at picking up color and placing it on the botton lashline without it getting all over the place. I'm sure there are many other uses for it that I have yet to discover. Overall E.L.F. has been a pretty hit or miss brand for me, but this fanstastic brush for only $1 has definitely got my vote.

My favorite ELF brush. Not all of their brushes are soft. Some brushes unfortunately have shedding. For example, I really can't stand their C brush. This one, however, is really nice. It is very soft. The angle is perfect for the outer corner. I also use it to put mineral powder underneath my waterline. It sets the eye liner very well. My only complaint: not enough bristles. But for the price, it gets an A - .

The brush fell completely apart after i washed it 3 times bristles fell out in clumps terrible but at least it was only a dollar.

My eye shadow goes on so smooth and even with this brush. No shedding either. I can't believe it's only $1. Great brush!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Red Eyes: Blue
Great Brush! I have had mine for forever and washed it too, and no shedding! Perfect shape for my eye crease, too.

I have only one use for this brush, but it is the only one I use for brow highlighting. Because of it's angled shape, it gives me a precise line above and below the brow.
I would recommend it for that, but cannot attest to its use in the crease.

Nice brush, but it sheds a lot when I first opened the packaging. Not as soft as some other ELF $1 brushes either, but it does its job well and the shape is pretty good for getting a more precise application. I wouldn't buy again though, since I didn't find it as good on my skin as some of ELF's other brushes.

The shape of this brush makes it excellent for precision application of eye shadow. The brush fits perfectly in my hand as it is advertised to do. The bristles are strong enough yet soft enough not to be rough on the skin. Application results in a smooth textured finish. I use it along with the other ELF essentials eye brushes. I use the eyeshadow brush and smudge brush on my lid and this brush on the inner corner of my eyelid and for highlighting under my brow (it does this wonderfully as it's shaped right for that).

i find this brush more precise than the elf eyeshadow brush. i use it for multi purpose: on eyelid, crease and outer corner. i think its quite handy.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Black, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Green
I prefer to use this brush to pack shadows onto my waterline (very carefully of course), or to pack a shadow onto a liquid liner on my top eyelid. I have never used it for crease work, I prefer to use a fluffy blending brush to gently build up my crease. All in all, I enjoy this brush and have had zero problems with it besides some of the handle coating coming off over time and washing.

Great brush. My first defining brush ever. It was cheap and it works just great. You do not need those expensive brushes...they all do that same thing (in my opinion only)...it has just the right stiffness to get the product where you want it :)

Another winner from e.l.f. This white handled angled brush (from the Essential line) picks up powdered shadow and glides it across my lid with ease and isn't too skinny nor fat for crease work. I've used it for two months and it looks as good as new.
If you are looking for high perfomance eye shadow brushes for one dollar each, this D/A brush along with e.l.f.'s "Eye Shadow Brush" are a perfect pair.

I confess-i slept on this brush. I bought it two years ago and placed it in my brush box. I picked it up today and used it before i went to church. This brush did a phenomenal job highlighting my outer v. For the first time my eyes didn't look like i got beat up. I got compliments on my makeup all day. I purchased two more brushes at dollar general after church. For $2 both brushes were a steal!

Hate this brush. I heard that it is 'a must-have from their essential line' - the only reason I got it, as I only buy ELF Studio/Mineral line brushes. Maybe mine is defective, but the bristles are scratchy, they shed and the brush doesn't pick up enough product. I used it few times for packing on loose glitter eye-shadow and it did the job. No way I would try to use it in the crease or for blending.

I love this brush, it makes getting my rather deep crease easy to get so it gives my eyes an easy smoky look or give them a hidden pop of color it needs. The brush is rather soft I think, and the packaging it very simple. I only got it for a dollar plus tax and it works great.
It would also make for a great gift for your make up loving friend as its cheap, works greats and they'll be sure to love it.
