ELF Powder Brush Review

8 May

After reading such glowing reviews about the ELF Powder Brush online I decided to purchase one to test out for myself. ELF is a brand that launched in America in 2004 and luckily for us they also dispatch to the UK from the website eyeslipsface.co.uk. The brand is known for being incredibly cheap; this synthetic haired powder brush cost a mere £3.50 and has previously been compared to both the MAC 109 (contour brush) and MAC 187 (stippling brush) which retail at around  £31 each.

I am already a big fan of this brush! It is sturdy and applies product well. The black hairs are incredibly soft yet dense and there has been no shedding which I had expected due to the low price tag. Plus, the large head means that it takes less time to cover the face, which is always a bonus on a weekday morning. 

Despite it being a powder brush, I mainly use this for my Estee Lauder Double Wear liquid foundation and love the airbrushed finish it gives. It doesn’t drag on my skin or leave any ‘tidemarks’ or streaks at all. (I normally use it in a stippling motion but it also works just as well as a buffer). The only negative is that it does not feel as sturdy as MAC brushes.

I also purchased the ELF eyeshadow brush and now can’t wait to try it out!
