You need this brush!
Honestly, I got this brush because whenever I see a new item from "e.l.f." - I buy it, even if I don't necessarily need it. :) I have tons of brushes (low and high end), but I do have my all-time favorites from "e.l.f." that I always seem to go back to. So I figured, why not?
You absolutely need this brush if you do any kind of crease work and especially if you are a fan of smoky eyes or gradient eyeshadows!
This brush is very unique because not only is it tapered, but it is also pinched on the sides. I included some pictures with this review, so you could (hopefully) get a better idea of its shape. Please excuse the dirty bristles; I literally use it every single day.
I personally always deepen up my crease just a bit. In my opinion, it gives a bit more dimension to the eye, even if you are wearing almost no makeup at all. On those days, I just use a color about a shade darker than my skin tone. So I used to always use the MAC 239 for that purpose. When I discovered this particular blending brush from "e.l.f.", there was no going back to the 239. Not even once!
The bristles on this brush are very soft and extremely well tapered from all sides. It's a bit thinner and less squared off than the MAC 239. Because it's thinner, more tapered and softer (in my opinion), it fits much better in the crease and feels unbelievably gentle on your skin. I find that its shape is perfect for deepening up your crease because you can manage not to blend out the color too far out (since the brush is thin), but yet you do incorporate that little bit of depth in your crease and it blends in so effortlessly. Although you definitely can bring the color out as far as you need to; I just personally prefer to use this brush specifically for the crease line. And I love that it's thin but the "fluffy" kind of thin if that makes sense. It's just a very elegant, unique brush and I would definitely recommend it to everyone.
Soft but not what I was expecting
I love the quality of this brush and the softness... However it is not the typical blending brush, it isnt a round brush it is more flat ... The best way to describe this brush is it being more of a fluffy packer brush... If your looking for a more traditional rounded blending brush I would grab ELF's "Fluffy Eye Blender Brush" both brushes are very good quality... But the pictures dont show what the brush actually is, this brush is not effective for what the name suggests
Love how this blends
I love this brush for blending my eye shadow and was planning on buying another. I was so excited to have found this brush but I have had it less than a month and it came apart on me already. I use the daily brush cleaner so I have not submerged it into water and it looks like the glue just didn't hold. This is the only Elf product thus far that makes me think you get what you pay for. :(
Great brush for toolkit
Great quality eyeshadow brush for blending shadow. The colour of the brush makes it look high quality too.
Best blending brush ever!
I got this brush in the sweet 16 "that's hot" set. I fell in love with it as soon as I used it! Excellent quality brush, super soft and blends eyeshadow like a dream!
Should be a staple in everyone's makeup brushes. I use it daily and absolutely love it.
A good brush
I've had this brush for a few months now. It is soft and it's held up well. I use it to pat on my shimmer/metallic eye shadows.
