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.
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!
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...
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!
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!
