I love the Elf studio line of brushes, they are excellent quality and super cheap.
I use this small stipple brush every day. I usually apply foundation with either my fingers or a beauty blender and then I go back over my cheeks and forehead (where my pores are more visible) and by using small dabbing motions with this brush and I reapply foundation to to diminish pores, almost give an airbrushed finish. This brush is excellent for getting in and around my nose too.
With all of ELF's brushes, I said above that they are high quality, I don't loose the bristles, they keep their shape and clean up really well.
This brush is another one of my favorites from elf. It is soft, great for those with sensitive skin, and doesn't disturb foundation if you use it for blush. This brush is quite small, so if you use it for foundation,it would take awhile. That being said, you can use it for foundation, as it is dense enough. Its great for cream blushes or blushes that are very pigmented. It blends blushes and highlighter really nicely, and is a really good size for blush and highlighter.
This brush is a GREAT investment -- especially for three bucks! It's really soft and the perfect density. It's easy to wash and doesn't shed. I love this brush for cream blush as well as highlighter and powdered products -- it works especially well for powdering under the eyes because it sets things without applying too much product. It's not quite a dupe for the MAC small stippling brush, but it's a very good alternative. All in all, I love this brush and highly recommend it.
Very happy with this purchase! It is very soft, doesn't lose bristles, and makes my face look airbrushed.
