This is a brush I've had for a while, since February to be exact, but I started loving it in the last month, I don't know why! Maybe because I'm used to big, super fluffy brushes for my powders! I feel sorry that I didn't show some love to this brush all this time, because it's such a nice brush! I own 2 of them actually and I use them mainly with my Physicians Formula SPF 50 Bronzer, they make a great pair! Here's what the brush looks like:
This brush has a nice, matte black handle, I don't know what material it's made of, as I couldn't find any information about it on Elf's website, but I can assure you that it feels nice to the touch and looks well made! It's neither a long nor a short (travel size) handle, it's somewhere inbetween, which I find really convinient! You can find the name of the brush printed on the handle in white writing, which is great, especially for beginners! ;)
The actual brush is amazing!!! It's made of synthetic hairs (Taklon to be exact) and it's really soft!! When I first got it and washed it no dye came out and it didn't lose any hairs, which was amazing, considering that this is a face brush and usually face brushes lose a couple of hairs during the first wash! I didn't notice any nasty smell either! It still doesn't shed, which is great, because I hate picking up hairs off my face! Keep in mind that this brush is quite flat as you can see in the pictures, so don't expect a big fluffy brush!
Like I said at the beginning of this review I mainly use this amazing brush to apply my Physicians Formula SPF 50 Bronzer, they make such a great combination!! I have quite many powder brushes, but I seem to prefer this one over the others to apply this specific powder product, I don't know why.. maybe because it's not super fluffy and the powder doesn't go flying everywhere lol ! Since this is a quite flat brush I guess you could use it for contouring as well ! :)
You can find this must have brush online here, but I haven't told you the best part yet! You know what they say..you get what you pay for... Well, that's definitely not the case, as this brush retails for only £3.50, yet it feels and performs like a high-end one! ;) Definitely check it out, you *have* to have this brush!! Trust me and you won't regret it! ;)
