I’ve got the brush with the black handle. I’ve used it for the better part of the year and decided I just need to toss it. On my face, the bristles feel very sharp and leaves my skin feeling...

Elf definitely updated their 'Essential' brush line to synthetic bristles, which I think is a huge improvement because I've owned them a few years ago and they were scratchy AF. They definitely...

This brush was DEFINITELY updated, I don't think anyone could call the bristles on the brush sitting in my makeup bag scratchy. They aren't super densely packed but pick up a lot of product, so you...

This brush has been updated since last year for sure. I had an older one of these and the Total Face Brush and I hated them because they were scratchy and the bristles fell out. I picked up one of...

This brush is horrific. Scratchy, ugly, and sheds a lot. I usually love E.L.F. products, but this was a failboat.

I hate this brush. Its rough on the skin & all the bristles fall out all over my face. I tried giving it a chance by just using it to pat down MAC fix+ spray but it even failed at life doing that!...

This brush is the scratchiest I've ever used. It caused a horrible cystic acne flare up right where my bronzer goes. JUST. DON'T.

Totally useless brush (and I have multiple ELF brushes, so I'm not against ELF). The bristles keep falling off, and they bend when placed on your skin with slightest touch so completely useless...

For AUD$3 even if this is terrible you can't really complain about it. I wouldn't use this for bronzing or blush as I like a large round fluffy brush for blush and bronzer. But for contouring, this...

If you're going to buy ELF brushes, go with the studio line! These 1$ cheapies just pale in comparison. This is the worst brush that I own, unfortunately! It is too sparse and feels terrible to...

Not happy with this brush! ELF has a ton of really great brushes but this NOT one of them! The bristles are stiff and not dense enough to deposit color well. And the brush head is really thin so it...

When I bought this brush it was labeled as a contouring brush. I was tired of using brushes that weren't angled for contouring so I decided on a whim to purchase this one. It was only $1 and seemed...

This is cheap and works great as a cheek contour brush. I know it's not the highest quality, but for the price it's a good product. I would buy again.

Substandard for an ELF brush. It's too light and flimsy to transfer much pigment so it takes more time and attention to contour. It is only slightly better as a blush brush. Worst of all - so so...

I never use this brush for contouring because I didn't like how it worked. I use it daily as a blush brush and it works great. I'm not a fan of heavy blush, so the light pickup of this works great...

This brush sheds a lot and does not retain its shape after washing. It feels scratchy on the face as well. This one is a no go.
