This is my favourite brush to use for foundation. It gives me such an even, full coverage. I never have a problem with streaks. Makes my foundation go a long way, I only need one pump. The bristles are super soft, but dense enough to spread makeup evenly. For the price, you really can't beat this brush.
Great brush! Definitely worth it and one of my favourites. Inexpensive but works just as it should. It's sturdy with soft bristles that stay put. I actually use it for cream foundation instead of mineral and find it works just as well for both.
This brush is definitely worth every penny. I liked my first one so much that I bought a few more as backups and my only complaint is it can be somewhat hit and miss with how much shedding occurs. My first brush was absolutely perfect but the second one I tried shed a tiny bit. Nothing awful but it was still a bit of a surprise. Nevertheless, this brush is amazing quality for an amazing price and can be used to apply a wide variety of products!
The elf studio powder brush is amazing, it is very soft, works with powders and liquids, and is large enough to be better and faster than other brushes that do foundation. It also does blush and bronzer, and blends things in nicely. I did find that the hairs were uneven and needed trimming. My gripe with this brush is that it comes loose from the handle, which makes it uncomfortable to use.
I have since also ordered the mineral powder brush, which despite being small, has many uses, and is great for buffing and blending. I did not have the issue with the ferrule coming off with this brush, but I find this brush to be similar to the even cheaper essentials powder brush.
I am really disappointed with my ELF studio brushes. I read so many great reviews about them, I ordered the whole set for practically nothing. I've been using them daily for a few weeks now and this morning my powder brush AND blush brush each broke into two pieces while I was using them. The brush parts are fantastic though.
Love this brush. I use it for putting pressed powder on everyday. Gives such a nice finish and it's so soft. Such a good price too! I'll keep repurchasing this brush forever! I've had for about a year and I wash it it every Saturday(once a week) and it's still it tip top shape!
This is a FANTASTIC brush for applying liquid foundation. I am not a fan of the heavy, mask like effect that heavy coverage foundation like Revlon Color Stay can give, but when applied with this brush, it gives a soft, smooth, natural effect. I stipple the foundation on and buff with the same brush. If I want a heavier coverage, I just repeat the process again. The brush is so soft, and when washed, does not shed, and dries very quickly. I have also used this brush to apply mineral powder foundation using the same method, and it gives a beautiful satiny finish. This brush is such an affordable work horse!
why would you buy expensive brans such as mac if this one is... ok... not as much good... but this one is good on its own way. it's soft and good for contouring.
I picked this up a hopeful dupe for the MAC 109.
From appearances it looks similar enough but since I don't own any MAC brushes I can't really compare.
It's a dense small slightly domed brush. Good for buffing out a more precise contour. I've yet to try it with liquid foundation but I think it might be a bit small.
For $3 (or 50% with cyber monday) can't really go wrong.
