Hello fellow IMBBians!!!
I have hooded eye and to give more depth and definition to my eyes, I wear a taupe or soft brown color in the crease and also blend out darker eye shadows to get a more flawless and seamless look. I have used two other crease brushes in past but with no satisfactory result. Hence, I decided to buy this particular one because it is cheap and has good reviews. Let us continue reading to know more about it.
It applies eyeshadow precisely into the crease of the eyelid for an expert blended look. The tapered tip is great for contouring to add depth and definition. This brush works great with loose or pressed eyeshadow-wet or dry. The soft taklon bristles are vegan-friendly and easy to clean.
How to use:
Apply color to the crease of the eyelid using back and forth motions with the brush.
My Take on E.L.F. Studio Crease Brush:
I have several blush brushes but I do not have any dedicated contouring brush. Hence, I bought this one because it is tapered and fluffy, something like Real Technique Contouring Brush.
It might just be a $3 brush, but it sure does not look like one. It has a very classy and expensive finish. It is all black with black bristles. It is packed in a steel holder, which is then attached to a plastic holder. On the plastic holder the words, ‘E.L.F. Studio Crease Brush’ are written in white.
Brush bristle quality:
They are synthetic bristles and are super soft and fluffy, like those expensive brushes.
The bristles of the brush are densely packed and fluffy at the end. I use it to apply color in the crease and lids and then blend them out. The bristle density is good and has no shedding.
It is a very dense. Hence, the finished look appears well blended and perfect.
This brush is easy to clean and dry. One just needs to put it in an upright position to drain out all the water. It does not shed, as most of the cheap brushes are expected to do.
It is absolutely perfect for blending eye shadows, to apply highlighter on the cheeks and the inner corner of eyes. It can also be used to blend out concealer. The fluffy part of brush allows for a very precise color application and blends it out. One can pick up a little amount of product at a time and blend. Continue this process until one achieves the desired look. It is good for people like me who has small, hooded eyes and find it hard to apply eye shadow. I also use it to apply powder under my eyes to prevent kajal from smudging and prevent my concealer from creasing.
Pros of E.L.F. Studio Crease Brush:
• Travel friendly packaging and easy to store.
• Easy to wash and dry.
• Soft synthetic brushes.
• No shedding.
• Good for applying color on lids, blending dark and light eye shadow, highlighting shade in inner corners and high points of face and applying concealer.
• Fluffy – helps to blend product well.
Cons of E.L.F. Studio Crease Brush:
• First time wash might cause brush dye to wash away but this happens only the first time.
Would I Repurchase/ Recommend E.L.F. Studio Crease Brush?
No, because it would last me a while and I like to try out new products every time. But, I do recommend it to my readers, especially who are new with the whole makeup scenario and do not want to shell out large amount of money. This product is not meant only for beginners but also for pros since it performs so well. It is comparable to more expensive crease brushes.
