I looovvve using this to set my undereye concealer. I prefer to use pressed powders and this works amazingly with them ❤️ Definitely not good for applying foundation.
Aeiou from I'm not telling
I bought this for a highlighter brush, and I was thoroughly disappointed. It is made for foundation and other creams, so I tried that. It did not work at all. So now, it just kinda sits in my makeup brush collection, and I occasionally use it to wipe off powder.
Very confusing brush...
Cas from Pa
I bought this brush in store. I saw/thought it was labeled as a highlight brush, this made me curious because of it's shape and tapered end. I looked and assumed it must be soft or at least would sort of form to your face as you press it to your skin. Wrong! I have no real idea how anyone could make use of this brush. It is almost like a tooth brush texture.. the brustles are not soft and form folding. It is way too tough to be used as a highlighting brush in my personal opinion. I love E.L.F brushes more times than not but this was a flop for me. It states here it is a "foundation brush" and I cannot really see how this would apply foundation in a smooth, even, streak free way. If you use it to get product on your face and then another form of applicator to blend, maybe this is for you.
Great for applying contour & highlight

Great for precision application of contour and highlighter and for the price point a great value. I bought them for that specific purpose so l have never used them to apply foundation and l couldn't recommend it for that purpose especially since there are other better options.
Not a good brush
Ms. Jones from NY
The bristles on this brush are thick and too firm for the smoothe application of liquid foundation. Shape would come in handy but brush just isn't flexible enough to get into the corners of the face

I bought this with the impression that it would be a soft brush perfect for wiping away finishing powders but it is a very stiff and hard brush that left my makeup pretty streaky. When using it for foundation, it, again, left streaks and soaked up most of the product. Not impressed.
Will never buy again!

The first time using it some bristles started falling off. By the end of the month the entire bristles just slid right off
Better For Concentrated Swipes of Color

Too many downfalls to be worth purchasing as a foundation brush. It goes on streaky, doesn't cover enough area, and simply does not leave a desirable finish which will cause caring regardless of primer & setting spray. BUT! I have found a use that works for me (I am not only a makeup artist but an artist of the canvas as well). I find that when I contour, sometimes my Benefit Hoola Bronzer doesn't show up as concentrated as I like in the deepest areas. First I blend out my contour then use this brush to apply a concentrated amount of color to really define the details. You can also use this as a highlight brush or even as a crease brush for transition and shadow colors on your eye crease. It isn't an obvious brush for these methods as it's fairly stiff and not best to blend with but is great for all these applications. If you're seeking a brush that is everything you ever wanted for foundation, I would suggest biting the bullet on cost and getting the IT Cosmetics OMG Foundation Brush #106. If you were ever worried about a brush mopping up excess product and wasting your money, this brush miraculously does the opposite and saves on product while giving you the dreamiest, softest, blurred foundation finish I have ever experienced. Although its brush head is larger than that of a flatter option, it works flawlessly to get into hard to reach places and does all the work blending for you. Incredible finish, saves on product, and helps to keep you from caking due to its even, soft, finish. It really is called OMG for a reason. Worth EVERY penny and more. As far as this brush goes, if you are a true artist, you'll get some mileage out of this Elf brush if used for detail work on contours with powders but other than that, pass. I would not recommend this to a friend because my friends are not true artists but if you are and understand what an underpainting is & how to build up detail work on a canvas then I would recommend this brush for you.
Way too dense

The bristles are a bit stiff to apply liquid or cream foundation evenly but this brush would be good for setting powder.
