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!
I love the flat top brush from Elf so I was tempted to try their other brushes. However, this is just a horrible brush! Sure it is cheap, but as a foundation brush it does not do its job all. It is not dense, very flimsy, it absorbs too much foundation, it does not blend the product well and it leaves streaks on your face. Although, this could be used for facial masks.
These are bomb ! i have 3 !
I am happy with these brushes , i like to practice halloween looks so i have 3 of these so i can have 2 for messing around and one for myself . There the perfect length and there not too hard and not to soft ! i also got them for $1 each ! , now who could argue with that ? If you happen to see this awesome elf brush dont hesitate to grab one ! you wont regret it :)
This was my first foundation brush ever so i didn't know ne better but once i started experimenting more with makeup and getting more and better brushes i realized how much i hated this brush as a foundation brush. Its stiff and hard ... i only use it to apply some quick moisturizer or concealer.
"It was okay, I guess?"
The ELF foundation brush is not that bad actually. Yes, it is quite hard to maneuver around the face, but once you get the hang of it, it'll be easier for you to use it. One tip that I can suggest to those who have this kind of foundation brush is to only put a little amount on your brush and then work your way through. :) However, if you cannot seem to work with this brush and use it for your foundation application, you can opt to use it to cleanse your face or give yourself a facial or so. :) It is easy to clean anyway. :)
