Product Review: ELF Powder Brush

i tried some ELF brushes before, found them to be scratchy and not being able to distribute the pigments very well...in short, i didn't like them at all. there were some products that i did like..but their brushes, a big No.
until this:


This new anti bacterial, synthetic haired Taklon brush is softer and more absorbent and can be used with wet or dry products. Be a professional makeup artist and create a flawless look with this e.l.f. studio brush!
  • Creates a professional sculpted look
  • Full coverage color
  • Use for powder or blush for perfect contouring
  • Vegan Friendly

i didn't know this brush even exists. i've been seeing a lot of posts about their Studio line makeup and brushes but never really checked into it. A friend sent me this brush on one of our swaps, and she did tell me that this is one good brush. I washed it immediately, but hesitated using it for quite sometime. Until one day, that i need a brush to buff my powder and the rest of my face brushes are still drying up. So i had no choice but to give this a chance.

and oh boy, i just wanted to hit myself with it big time...

it's perfect!

what i love:

  • gives that flawless, well-blended look
  • buffs in powder and liquid very well into a polished, natural look
  • soft, densely packed hairs

  • luxurious black color and design
  • long handle, easy to use
  • affordable price, $3
  • no shedding, no bleeding and no funky smell
  • fits just right in my hand
what i hate:
  • the hairs can be frizzy (buhaghag). geesh, i need to find a better word! LOL
other than that, this is the perfect flat top brush for me.


will i buy again?
i now have the entire Studio line brushes and other items on cart, tee-hee!

TIPS:
  • Always wash your brushes prior to use
  • Use a brush cleanser or a conditioning shampoo in cleaning your brushes. I use my Johnson's milk bath or MAC brush cleanser.
  • To prevent the brush hairs from being frizzy, use a brush guard (this i must have, soon)
  • Clean brushes regularly

do you have the other brushes from ELF? if you do, please suggest what i should get, before i check out the entire brush set. :)

Lesson Learned: Some things are worth another chance!

you can try the $1.00 eyeshadow brush and $1.00 blending eyebrush. I recommend those two. :)
