all of these brushes are very nice. I reach for this one every time i do my makeup. It is soft and picks up my shadow nicely. I use urban decay and mac eyeshadows for everyday and occasionally I use this with my 120 palette. This works great every time!
I really love this brush. I am kinda new to brushes, especially face brushes. The only other brand face brush I have like this is a mac 129 SE and that one is really crappy. I mean, it might work good if it weren't a SE, I did read that the quality on those were lower grade than the regular/full sized, but the 129SE is really sheddy. I get hairs on my face every time I try to use it. SO I always reach for this fluffy elf brush. It is a bit larger than the mac 129, it's perfect for a light, sheer application of blush, and... I also use one for translucent powder. I don't have much to compare it to, but I really don't have the the desire to try others, for now I love this brush!
I am on the fence about if I will buy again. Like a lot of brands out there, I want to like them, maybe it's just to fit in or something. I love to get the fun colors, and love the names even more, but the formulas are hit or miss. Actually the only polishes I have EVER liked from this brand are the designer series. The best thing about them is the brush, but what help is a good brush if you're just brushing streaky yuck on your nails that you have to take loads of time cleaning up off your skin? I think that marketing has made them so popular. I do not believe you get what you pay for. I think there are lots of drug store polishes out there that are better than opi. But, there are a lot of ladies that don't step foot in drug stores, so what are they going to sell them? things like this.

this is such an awesome color!! at first, I was going to use as a base for some glitter, but FORGET that! its so pretty! Its like a pretty hot neon violet pearl! It would be a hard to find moneymaker if it were from a more popular brand. In the bottle, its just eh, but once its on, it looks lit from within. It is streaky and weird first coat, but does shape up with the second one.I topped it with orly won't chip, and its so smooth and pretty itty! oh and i got it for like 3 cents when sallys had a 5.00 off coupon! so I really was surprised by this polish.
this is really cakey like kids makeup, and it feels like chap stick on my eyelids. i tried it on, took it off after it didnt ever feel dry, and then took it back to the store and demanded my money back. i thought it would be something for on the go, since the lashBLAST was such a hit. i guess they just took advantage of the name and made a whole "blast" line. BLAH.
