Most Helpful Positive Review Prefer them over Professional brushes
I have purchased all of these brushes individually in the past and I figure a pro and con format is easiest for interpreting a review of a product. I was only able to photograph a few of the brushes since some are back at home.
-Easy to use
-Has never Shed (i have used the same brushes for over a year)
-With property and regular cleaning they stay soft and in great condition
-Very portable in the carrying case provided
-The black handle makes finger prints and make up very visible
-I have had only one break but I believe it was because of improper storage while traveling. I was easily able to repair it with glue and it hasn't broken off since
-Not a huge fan of the "bent" eyeliner brush, its a little difficult to be super precise for something like a Cat eye look
I began using elf products years ago and I fell in love with their studio brushes. I replaced my high end bare minerals brushes and Victoria secrets make up brushes with these and i am so happy I did. The Victoria secrets holiday make up brush gift set fell apart when i cleaned them and while the Bare Mineral brushes were soft when i got them after there 2nd cleaning they began to get very scratchy and rough.
I use these brushes daily:
-Eye shadow "C" brush - To apply eye shadow
-Crease Brush - To Blend eye shadow
-Fan brush - To apply highlighter and whisk away eye shadow fall out
-Powder Brush (flat top) - To apply liquid foundation or setting powder
-Selfie Ready Powder Brush - To blend out blush and bronzer
-Blush Brush - To apply Blush
After adding all of this up you save upwards of 15+ dollars by buying the kit while also getting the carrying case free. I would recommend this to anyone who either wants a full professional brush kit or wants to give a gift to a make-up lover. Also its great to know they're cruelty free.
I would also purchase their Angled Blush Brush and use it for contouring. I find if you use its side you can get a very precise and blended contour that looks natural.

Most Helpful Critical Review Absolutely not worth it.
I bought these and have had them less than a month but I don't wear makeup on a daily, three of my brushes completely split and the metal piece connecting the brush hairs to the handle came off on most... I'm upset due to the fact I spent 50 on this and they didn't even last long. This should be worth only 30 at the most, definitely not worthy. Don't even bother.

I do love elf brushes and wanted to buy this kit for the rolled up case and to add some different brushes to my collection, even though I would have added some duplicates. But was in ULTA and the brushes listed on the back of their box were not the same brushes listed here online. So I didn't get it bc the ones that were missing are the ones I needed. So I was disappointed. But only bc the wrong brushes are listed. Otherwise I do love elf brushes. So if you need any of their brushes worth getting.
A steal for the price
Ms fm from Montreal, Canada
This set is a complete steal for the price it has all you need for a flawless face and eye application. I really like the selfie ready foundation brush and the concealer brush for the face. The only brush I find terribly useless in this set is the stipple brush which density doesn't allow an easy and nice foundation or powder application. The brushes are very versatile and can be use for many things.
Quality is good I hardly notices any shedding
replaced brushes from las vegas
i find the product overall good, it's just that i wasn't given 5 of the brushes that come with the product, instead they replaced them with different brushes. i mainly got this for the mini and larger fan brush, contour brush, and angled eyeliner brush ( stripple brush didn't come in package either) but instead i got a powder blurring brush, mineral powder brush, fluffy eye blender, flat eyeshadow, and pointed eye pencil.
Greta product greats price
KK from Colorado Springs
These brushes are amazing! They blend well and do not shed.
They Do The Job
Amber from United States
Before I bought these I noticed some of the reviews talking about how the brushes come undone and need to be glued back together. That hasn't happened to me yet but some are a bit wobbly. Also the highlighter brush that they send you is nothing like the highlighter brush they're advertising in the pic, it's not fanned like that it's exactly like the blush brush from their kit, like they're exactly identical. So they kind of lied.
Forgot a brush
M75 from Neptune, Nj
They didn't include a spoolie which is why I picked this kit in the first place.
Love this set!
Virdrago from Lakeland, FL
This is my favorite go to everyday brush set. Love it. Has everything I need. Travels well.
Some of the brushes aren't the same as on the picture
wai from NM
Have not tried them yet but there's a weird odor and I bought it for the angled liner brush which is not in there and neither is the little fan they were replaced with two others.
It has a really weird smell
Keziah G. from Houston.
It smells like fish, but also like chemicals. Idk. The brushes are good I think it's just the case that holds the brushes that smell like that. But they smell really weird. I'm going to try to clean them and see if the smell leaves.
Pretty good deal for price.
Keiara from Mass
I am very satisfied with my purchase the only thing is my set didn't come with the flat contour brush or the mini fan brush, which is a little upsetting considering I really wanted that brush but other than that I am satisfied.
Perfect Set For Beginners
Da'Sha from Mississippi
I recommend this brush set to anyone who is just now learning how to do makeup. Because, when using the correct brushes it makes a big difference. The only brush that the set is missing is a mini buffer brush.
Great for Repainting!
Elias88 from Murphysboro, IL
I bought this set and the 12 piece set because they were cheap enough that I wouldn't care if I ruined them in a craft project. I wanted custom brushes that would be match the theme of my beauty products and containers as well as be good quality brushes as I have bought elf brushes before and was impressed. This 19 piece set was easier to paint than the white 12 piece set. I think if anyone else uses these for the same purpose you might want to sand the handle just a tad to give the paint a better grip and figure out how to stand the brushes handle up while painting, but I did not sand them and I'm happy with how they came out. I just used them today for makeup and I don't have any complaints, they all were great!
Would buy again
Sandy from Emmaus Pa
This brush set is awesome!
Rhonda from FL
Why pay more? This set is perfect for makeup application. Great quality!
mara1105 from undisclosed
I bought this last Friday and it came today, so quick! The packaging is perfect and it keeps everything safe. Because of the prize, I also received two small gifts. Now with this brush set I can start practicing, they are perfect for beginners like me! :)
gia from Cherry Hill, New Jersey
These brushes are great! I clean mine once a month (i do my makeup maybe every other day if not less) and they've been great. I've had these since December and all of them are still in great shape! Usually, after a few months, the tops start to loosen from tapping off extra product, but these haven't budged. They're also incredibly soft and apply so well. They don't absorb products and apply evenly. Definitely recommend.
Bad from Bad
This did not come with a angled eyeliner brush a stipple brush a fan brush or a mascara brush I'm very mad.
Weird from New Hartford ny
A little disappointing I got a fluffy eye blender brush which was not included in the the description and I also didn't receive a angled eyeliner brush which was a brush that I needed. Smelt a little funny but I can get over that.
They smell like fish
Beth from NJ
I knew it was too good to be true. These brushes smell so bad, it was funny at first but now I'm getting annoyed because the smell is not going away. They also splinter and shed like crazy, they must've cut the bristles but not done anything to shake off the the hair splinters so when I used one for the first time my whole face was covered in brush hair splinters.
Taly123 from Fitchburg ma
I love these brushes. They are my go to brushes. Would definitely recommend
Favorite brush set
Chels from Birmingham
They really hold up you get a great selection works great
I wish I loved this set.
L from texas
I really wished I loved this set as much as I did when I got it. I had them for about two weeks before the broke and the brushes started falling apart on me.
shauniep from Wales
I love these brushes so much, for such a good price and a vegan leather brush roll I really can't fault it. Fast shipping too, thank you e.l.f!!
mogo68 from Athens, GA
I have used my brushes for around two months and the handles are loose or falling off on the larger brushes. Other than that very disappointing fact, I love the softness of the brushes and they clean well and easily without any degradation of the bristles. I clean them weekly. I gave three stars because of the durability of the bristles.
Calista from Pennsylvania
I love this set. It's my first brush set I've bought and all of them are incredible. I do have issues with the brushes getting loose and having to glue them back together, though. Other than that, it's perfect.
