Most Helpful Positive Review Good For Everything
This brush is quite small, and therefore nice for traveling especially because it has more than one use. It's not my ideal buffing/blending brush for foundation, but it still works well at blending in product. The brush is pinched at the sides, which makes it able to blend in things like contour and bronzer. All in all, this is a really good brush to have. Oh, and did I mention it's incredibly soft? It feels amazing on the skin.
Most Helpful Critical Review Great brush, horrible quality
I bought this brush about 2 or 3 weeks ago and absolutely loved it. However, the second time that I washed it, all of the brushes fell out completely and my only option was to throw it away. There was no way to try to fix it. Such a shame because it's a great brush.

This is a great brush to have in my bag for when I need to reapply my powder throughout the day.
Great for the price

I new it was a travel size, but I didn't think it would be so soft and versatile. I definitely needed this for putting in my travel bag. It's small and super soft. I use it for my finishing powder and to blend the finished product into my face. I might buy more!

This is one of my favourite brushes! It's small, but it gets the job done. I've had it for years and have experienced no shedding and no wobbling of the handle (and some other elf brushes are prone to doing). It's sturdy and well made and I can't believe how inexpensive it is for what it is. Back when I wore contour, I loved using this in the contours of my cheekbones as it fit nicely and placed and blended product well. Now, I enjoy highlighting my cheekbones with it. Everything looks blended with no harsh lines.
Reading the recent reviews, it looks like they changed the design. Why elf, why? Why change something when it's not broken?
Not The Same Brush!
S from North Texas
I loved the old Beautifully Bare blending brush, which is what I thought I was buying, and is the one shown in the picture. I should have read the reviews! The one I got is not that brush! The one I got is all black, the bristles feel and look less soft, and the saddest part is they're way less dense. what I loved about the old beautifully bare brush is the denseness of the fibers, and how long and splayed out they were making it easier to clean than most of those other dense short brushes out there. the new one I got is really just as dense as any other brush, which ruins the appeal for me. I'm sad now.
Not as Pictured BUT I like it anyway

If the brush I received had been the same one that is listed in the online picture, this brush would have been a perfect 5. But I received instead an rollover black brush with black bristles. Apparently the blush has changed but the photo has not been updated. I hope the company will update soon because the brush I received is pretty great anyway. I got it wit the putty bronzers and the brush does a fantastic job lending out the bronzer. I first use the putty brush to place the putty bronzer on my face where I want it and then I use the Travel Blending Brush (which just says Blending on it) to blend out the product and the blend is just so perfect. I hope the company updates the photo soon so that no one else will be as disappointed as I was to see the product received did not match the photo online. This way people can base the reviews purely on how great the current blending brush is. I would still highly recommend this brush if you are looking for a nice bronzer blush - it not only blends really well on the cheekbones it also does a good job along the jawline as well as around the face.
not the same brush

They changed the brush...but, they haven't updated the picture. The new brush is horrible and looks cheap.
Not the same brush!
Gabby from Chicago, IL
I was hoping to find a dupe to morphe E5. Unfortunately it's not the same picture and not as firm and dense as I thought. I will still find use for this with bronzer or blush for a soft look
NOT THE SAME AS IN THE PIC
annoyedbrushlady from minnesota
the brush I got is all black, black hand, black hairs, black thing that holds the bristles together. it's a good brush, just not what I ordered
Original brush Amazing, current model meh
NinaBear218 from Camden County NJ
I have the original version of this brush which is pictured. The brush that comes in the mail is all black like the standard e.l.f. brushes. The bristles are different on the newer brush, (they look similar to the bristles on the tapered foundation or regular foundation brush. The original brush is awesome for applying bronzer/powder contour. I use the brush for my Jaclyn Hill bronzer and it applies the powder very well! Needless to say I will be returning the brush that came in the mail. I'd rather not waste the brush and even open it.
READ THIS BEFORE BUYING
Disappointed from OK
The brush pictured is not the one you'll receive when purchasing online. Is better to just go and buy it personally.
Not the original brush
Not as pictured from Bay Area
I am so disappointed. I had the original brush and this is not it. Wish I had read the comments. It does not compare. This new all black one is very flimsy compared the the original dense brush. Will have to contact elf to see if they have the one pictured.
Definitely not what's pictured
ChrissieB from Philadelphia
When I opened the box to check out my items I was sure that Ulta sent me the wrong items until I read some of the other reviews and noticed a lot of other people received the same brush I did. It's definitely not what I purchased but I will give it a try. If only I had read the reviews before purchasing 2 of these, hopefully I love them
Feels the same as old one but looks different

I'm fine with the new brush look but the picture and description should have been updated to show the change
Picture does not match actual product.

The brush is all black - not at all what is pictured online.

This is a great size brush perfect for traveling and various purposes.
Picture doesn't look what I got. Disappointing..
Duckie85 from undisclosed
I ordered what I saw in this picture and I got an all black brush and the bristles have a dyed look to them, almost dark bluish black. Luckily the ink is not transferring to my foundation. But I am a little disappointed.
Good for the price
Britt from Florida
Not the best blending brush I've used but it's still good
I would buy this product again

I use this brush to put on face powder....it works for me.
The Best Cream Contour Brush
anne from Denver
I purchased this on the ELF site but figured I'd leave a review here as well. This is the BEST brush for a natural looking cream contour (I use it with my Fenty stick) that I have found. Perfect size for the cheek area and can be pinched for use on the nose. Unlike some of ELF's other brushes that are marketed for contour, this brush isn't overly dense as to get a harsh line/patchy blend/require a second brush to blend out, rather, it can be used for both placement and diffusing. It's the perfect in-between. Super beginner and expert-friendly alike.
Fantastic for Foundation
Maggie P. from California
I bought this quite a while ago and just recently tried it for applying foundation. I was very pleasantly surprised. It did a great job!

It blends out my foundation fast which saves me time in the morning.

I'm happy with this brush, it blends out my contour pretty nicely!
Love this brush!

I've been using this brush pretty much since it came out and I'm only on my second replacement! Great grip and flawless application. I would definitely recommend.
Rox the ana from Kansas
Good quality and affordable
Perfect for travel or quick fixes!
KimBrinson from Houston
This is an ideal brush for "on the go" applications! It blends very well and is extremely durable! Probably wouldn't use it for my everyday brush but if I'm washing my others or on a trip or doing a touch up on my makeup at work or when I'm out - it's amazing! Thanks, ELF!
