ELF Cosmetics Hits & Misses Part 3
Hello everyone! Here is the last part of my ELF reviews for the products I have tried that are also available on the ELF India website (www.eyeslipsface.in). In this post, I’ll be focusing on the makeup brushes and tools that I have tried.
Foundation Brush – MISS!
What ELF says about Foundation Brush: Achieve an ultra smooth, poreless finish when applying foundation or tinted moisturizer. For best results use upward brush strokes.
What I think about ELF Foundation Brush: I did not like this foundation brush at all . 🙁 The bristles are decently soft, but they are so flimsy! The brush head bends way too easily and is not dense at all. It actually feels like a paint brush to me. It does not pick up powder very well. I did not even bother to try it with liquid foundation as I have other brushes that are only slightly more expensive that I know will work better. Would not recommend this.
Blending Eye Brush – HIT!
What ELF says about Blending Brush : Expertly blends multiple eye shades while softening dramatic edges and fine lines. Brush can also multitask – use it to set powder or liquid concealer.
What I think about ELF Blending Brush: I believe that there are inconsistencies with this brush. Some people hate it and say it is scratchy and doesn’t pick up eye shadow very well. I’ve also seen in pictures that sometimes, the brush head is really big and bushy and looks scratchy. Mine however, is very densely packed and the bristles are very soft. It blends very well for me and I use it daily! I think if you have the chance to choose between brushes when buying this, you should pick the nicest looking one versus a bushy looking one.
ELF Blushing, Bronzing, and Blending Brush – MISS!
What ELF says about Bronzing Brush: This unique three-in-one brush allows for precision application of blush, bronzer, and all other multipurpose dusts and loose powders.
What I think of ELF Blending Brush: I had high hopes for this brush, sadly, I was disappointed. 🙁 The shape of the brush head itself is good for contouring, however, it was so much smaller than I expected! I wanted a bigger, fluffier brush. Also, the bristles are SO stiff and scratchy! Not comfortable on the face at all! It does pick up powder decently but just the fact that it is so scratchy does not make me want to use this brush.
ELF Shine Eraser – HIT!
What ELF says about Shine Eraser: These amazing little sheets instantly absorb oil, minimize pores and mattify shiny skin. Woven texture eradicates shine and keeps skin matte for hours. Green Tea Extract helps re-texturize skin, masking facial imperfections. Travel pack fits neatly in purse for on-the-go touch-ups. Contains: 50 sheets.
Directions: Gently pull out Shine Eraser sheet from envelope. Blot sheet in T-Zone.Flip sheet and blot all other facial areas.Use whenever skin needs to be mattified.
What I think about ELF Shine Eraser: I personally love these oil absorbing sheets! They work just as well as any other oil blotters I have tried that were pricier, and this is just $1! It really absorbs all the oil and shine off my skin and mattified it. I don’t agree with the claims about the green tea “masking facial imperfections” though, but it is a very good regular oil blotter for the price!
So, I hope this series was helpful for anyone who wanted to buy from ELF’s website but weren’t sure what to try! Next, I’ll review some more ELF products that aren’t listed on the ELF India website! My personal favorites from ELF that I haven’t reviewed yet are:
- Studio Blushes
- Studio Bronzers
- Studio High Definition Powder
- Studio Powder Brush
- Studio Concealer Brush
- Studio Kabuki Face Brush
- Mineral Eyeshadow Primer
- $1 Eyeshadow Brush
- $1 Blending Wedges
- $1 Cuticle Pen
I would ESPECIALLY recommend the Studio Powder Brush if you can find it!!! It is an AMAZING brush. So soft and applies powder flawlessly . 🙂
