Best Makeup Brush Ever! (ELF POWDER BRUSH)

Those of you who read my last blog post know that I just recently received my first order from elf (eyes lips face).  Well, I promised that I would do reviews on some of the products I have gotten to try, and so now will be the first of those to come.  Also, on my last poll, product reviews was what you guys wanted the most, so I decided today I'd rave about my newest favorite brush!

A little background about me and makeup brushes: I really don't have all that many.  I literally didn't have any that I purchased separately until recently.  So maybe the best makeup brush ever is a little bit too high of a standard for you.  But let's just get right into it and I will tell you why it is my favorite!

Here's what it looks like:
The Details:

-flat top brush (pretty dense)
-nice soft hairs
-3 dollars

Ok keep in mind this my first review on a brush before so don't get too upset. How about I just talk about why I like this and skip that list?  So this brush on the package says it is meant for powder and blush, but also says it can be used on liquid foundation. The reason I got it was because I wanted a better brush to apply my powder with. But I've heard some people say they use it with their liquid foundation and I am thinking of trying that but so far I've only used it for my regular powder (almay hydrating powder) and my  physicians formula happy powder. 

Here's a closer view that should help you see the detailed fibers of the brush better:

Well, let me tell you: it worked amazing!!  It was definitely the softest feel I've ever felt on a brush, and it applied really smoothly!  I kinda brushed it down my face, but also stippled in certain areas.  Once again, really soft!  This brush isn't really the most well known from what I can tell, but it definitely deserves to be.  I'd definitely recommend you try it out, since even if you don't like it the price is only 3 dollars.  

Rating: 9.5/10!!!

You can find elf products at target and kmart for sure, but I haven't seen this brush in any of the stores, so your best bet is to order it online.  My tip for elf ordering: wait for a sale!

    1. :) yes it seriously is amazing for powder but the awesome thing is that it's a flat top and seems like it would be great for liquids too! Glad you like it too :D

  4. I love this brush too I used it a lot for cream blushes :)

    1. That sounds like a great way to use it! I'll have to try that :)

  5. Nice review doll! I hate to say it, but once you get deeper into the obsession that is makeup brushes, it only gets worse lol! I would recommend trying one of the M.A.C. powde or foundation brushes (they are ridiculously soft!!)

    Keep up the good work!
