I can never get enough of make-up brushes. And if I find a decent one at a bargain price I call that a complete result. I have only tried a couple of bits from ELF and I've heard mixed reviews on their brushes.I was sent their foundation brush from a company called Product Testing to try out myself.
When you sign up to Product Testing they randomly match you up with a product that fits your blog's audience.
When I received my item I was interested to try out a foundation brush again as I
haven't used a flat brush to apply my foundation for a few years now. I tend to use either a stippling brush or the Real Techniques expert face brush to really buff the product in.
I was wiling to give it a go and see if I could be swayed back to my old ways, and what better way to try it out than with a product that retails at £1!? There's no point trying out these things after spending a fortune on a brush you might not use again.
So I dotted on my foundation and went to work.The brush was soft, it kept its shape, and no bristles fell out. I found it applied my foundation well but it needed to be buffed in a little with my other brushes for the end result I was used to.
The design of the brush is really pretty, it's clean and classic - the white handle looks lovely but I know it would look dirty very quickly.
You can see in the picture the bristles aren't very even so I trimmed a couple down and I was fine. It's not as dense as some other more expensive brushes but you really get what you pay for.
Not to be defeated I tried using another product, and when applying my concealer it patted it in really well. I think a creamier face product works best with this brush.
I'm glad I got to try this out an I'm now tempted to add a couple of eye brushes to my collection as the price is really great but I think I'll be sticking to my original face brushes for now.
