I’m having a bit of crush on E.L.F. Studio brushes at the moment. The latest addition to my collection is the Powder Brush. What makes it special? It applies mineral foundation like a dream and works just as well with liquid products too!
The E.L.F. Studio Powder Brush is a flat top brush. The synthetic bristles are extremely soft and feel like velvet on my skin. No scratching at all. They’re also very dense, so they pick up a good amount of product and provide medium coverage.
When I apply mineral foundation with a kabuki brush, I usually need at least a couple of layers to get the coverage I want. But with this brush, one layer is enough to even out my skin tone, cover small imperfections and give a natural finish.
I also use this brush to apply liquid foundation using the stippling method (put some foundation on your hand, dip the tip of the bristles in it gently and apply it tapping it onto your face) and I’m very impressed with the results. It gives my skin an airbrushed and flawless appearance quickly and easily.
I also didn’t experience any shedding at all and the bristles didn’t bleed either. I wash this brush quite often and it’s still as good as new. It also reshapes very well after washing.
Sounds too good to be true? The brush does have a couple of flaws… The first is the scent: it’s strong, chemical and very unappealing. Luckily, it goes away as soon as you wash it.
I also noticed the bristles were slightly uneven. There were a couple that were sticking out above the rest, so I trimmed them with some small scissors.
Overall, these are really small flaws that can be fixed easily and they certainly won’t stop me from buying a back up of this brush cos I think the quality is amazing and at only £3.50, it’s a steal!
