Most Helpful Positive Review wow!
whenever they put the brush on the whats new area, i ordered it and it just came today! i was waiting for elf to come up with good contouring brush like nars because they use synthetic bristles. this one is so soft to be synthetic though and i was like hmm i hope this is not real hair but i don't think it is. if anyone from E.L.F team sees my comment can you please answer if it is synthetic? like i said i just received my order and i cannot wait to use the brush!
Most Helpful Critical Review Nice quality but not ideal for all-over contouring
I've been trying to find a really good all purpose contouring brush for cheeks, nose, and jawline.
I had seen reviews on YouTube and blogs that the Ultimate Kabuki Brush was a little too wide for chiseling contour on the face so when the Contouring Brush was released I was hoping it would be a touch more narrow. However, its too narrow. It's hard to blend out and soften your contour with this brush. The dimensions of the brush head itself are 1/2" Deep and 2 1/2" Wide. Not bad along the sides of the nose but terrible for the cheeks and jawline. If you have a very small face and features then you just might love this but for my average face and features this brush is very ineffective. It IS very soft and seems better quality than some of their other brushes. Some of the e.l.f. brushes can be a little scruffy and scratchy but these new white tipped bristles are incredibly soft; they seem to be a combo between the sparser stippling bristles and their denser bristles so you have a really nice in-between density that works great for a number of different purposes (I also have the Ultimate Blending Brush with these same type of bristles and density).
As far as contouring goes I've had the best result with e.l.f.'s Angled Blush Brush; it fits perfectly in the hollows of my cheeks and along my jawline. It is a touch too big for along the sides of my nose but I can make it work by just lightly stippling my contour color where I want it. The Angled Blush Brush also blends and softens nicely. It's a much better all in one brush for contouring.

First contour brush but I liked it! Applied really easily. I did go back over the spots I added the contour to blend them with another brush, but this one applied the makeup evenly and did the job nicely.
Not what I needed
Kathy E. from Knoxville, TN
An Ulta staffer suggested brush when I asked fir an inexpensive option to the IT cosmetic foundation brush. This just isn't a brush that should be used to apply foundation, it's a contouring brush which I should have looked more closely at.

The brush blended nicely and contoured my face good but it literally broke in half & I only used it a few times 😔

I'm very new at highlighting and contouring. I decided to try this brush because I love Elf products. This works really gets the job done for contouring!

Grace from Michigan
makes contouring a simple task. bristles are soft and not rough so it doesn't hurt or take off skin.

vberk from Tennessee
Really love this brush for powder contouring! I just tap it into my bronzer three times, drag it along my cheekbone, then blend it out. Love!
Worst brush I've ever used
cerian28 from United Kingdom
I bought this last week and have tried it a few times and the results every time we're awful it didn't pick up any of the product! Not worth the money
Great brush at a great price

Love this brush! It makes application and contouring easy.
My favorite contour brush
Shan111 from undisclosed
IV had this brush for over a year now and it's held up great. it's one of the softest brushes i own. I use it to blend my contour under my cheek bones and the shape works perfectly for keeping it from spreading the contour to high or low.
definitively I would buy it again and again.
jane from florida
I use the product in the area I want to contour, be it cheeks, forehead, chin, nose and then constantly blend to create for a polished finish and perfect!!. is an A+ for me. :-)
Excellent for Color Pop blush
Gigi from Sellersville, PA
Tap, Tap and Tap brush into Color Pop blush and apply in smooth stroke from check to top of check bone.
The brush is great if you don't wash it
Autumn from Texarkana, Texas
I love elf, but I'd never tried their brushes. So far, they're all great, except for this one. It worked perfectly up until I washed it, and now there's soap stuck in it that I cannot get out. I've ran water through it for 20 minutes and still soap's stuck in it. I haven't had this problem with any other brushes so far, just this one.
AGutierrez from Big spring, TX
For the price- it's a win! It did shed a little at first, nothing major. Washed up pretty well too & has not broke. I've been using daily for over two weeks.
It Worked Until It Broke...
AAW from NC
I used this to blend out my contour stick and within 2 weeks of using it the handle fell off and I have to now replace. It was an OK brush. Not great, but not terrible. But definitely not worth the money spent to have it break in my hand while I'm trying to get ready in the morning.
Bonnie from New Orleans
Very happy. Great price.
Not a long use
Moose from South Dakota
My contour brush did not last long, the metal piece that connected the brush and holder was loose and the brush was falling apart.
Exactly what I was looking for!
Bugbaby from Gilbert AZ
The bristles are great picking up the color.
MStr7 from Madison, WI
After buying this brush and e.l.f.'s Blending Brush, I am now considering buying a whole set! This brush puts my contour exactly where I want it, cleans easily, and dries very fast. It's also very sturdy and doesn't feel cheap like other brushes I've had. Love it!
