I bought this because it was a dollar. I tried putting on my foundation with this and instead of blending it on my skin it just pushed it around and left streaks. I wasted a bit of the product just using this brush.
Great for a flat brush
If you like a flat brush for applying foundation, I this is as good as the high end ones. I personally like a round flat top brush for foundation application, but this one is great if you prefer a flat. One tip to prevent streaking, apply your moisturizer with it first.
Everytime I used this brush I have washed it because I am very anal about dirty brushes on my face and no fall-outs whatsoever. I have experienced minimal streaking (hardly noticeable) but then I buff in my foundation/tinted moisturizer with the E.L.F. studio powder brush and it does the job! It's a great brush for $2.
I've seen tons and tons of people on makeup tutorial videos use foundation brushes to apply there foundation instead of using their fingers. I didn't even know they made such a brush! I looked at tons of stores and tons of online places and they are expensive! Until one day I was at the Family Dollar and seen they had e.l.f. brushes and wha la! They had it for only $1!! I bought it and I love it. Even though you have to clean it from time to time to keep it from streaking when applying, I love it. It's defiantly worth the buy!
Streaks like crazy
The bristles are not flexible. Leaves so many streaks. I prefer using my hands instead of using this horrible brush. It is made of synthetic bristles, doesn't bleed or shed, and it doesn't work
This brush is not good for applying foundation because it will leave streaky marks. personally i prefer to use more dense bigger brushes to apply foundation like a flat top kabuki, or a huge fluffy brush just because the finish is more flawless and gets more blended out. But i do use this brush to apply my liquid concealer underneath my eyes and i like it for that.
Good Brush for the Price
I had minimal problems with streaking! I liked using for my on the fly foundation brush and it is easy to keep clean. This is a great brush and brand for anyone starting out on their beauty journey!
