E.L.F. Foundation Brush
Advantages: Great price, well available, super delivery, looks lovely and sleek, applies well.
Disadvantages: Possibly applies a little thicker than some people might like.
During a recent 50% sale from E.L.F (www.eyeslipsface.co.uk) I decided to give a few new products a try. Never having had an proper make up brushes I decided I would give these a try, especially as I have come to be a huge fan of the mineral foundations. Now that I have been using it for a couple of months I thought it was about time I gave it a review.
*~* Price and Availability *~*
The regular price for this is just £1.50, with regular offers these can often be found a lot cheaper. An excellent bargain if you ask me, considering the price of some of the more expensive brands.
It is only available from the E.L.F website in the UK, however in America it can be bought from various stores as well as online websites for around the world. It can definately be picked up but just to mention in addition to keep a look out in TKMaxx as sometimes the products can be found there for a little cheaper than online.
*~* Packaging *~*
The brush comes packaged in a transparentcase which some may wish to store the brush in to keep it clean, I however just keep mine within my make up box.
*~* The Brush *~*
It's very simple, around the length of a pencil. The handle is smooth and a pearly white colour, displaying E.L.F in silver writing. Around 3/4's of the way up around an inch of metal holds the bristles onto the wood. An orangey colour tinges the strands which are around an inch long (I cannot give exact measurements) and are not as I would have expected to be the same length, there is a sort of point to them which is rather useful.
*~* My Experience *~*
My skin has a lot of problems and so when I found the mineral powder it became my answer to solving them. This brush in particular helped to further achieve and even skin tone by applying the powder probably a little thicker than most would like. The bristles are soft and flexible but they are tightly packed, there is nothing thin about it at all.
It is gentle on the skin and easily applies my powder evenly although it only covers a smaller area rather than a large area. It is a flat brush but I find this means it applies the powder evenly to the skin without getting it everywhere.
I have been using it a couple of months and I have yet to wash it as it is still really clean and not at all clogged but then again I haven't been using a cream so it may have to be washed more often if using one of those.
*~* Overall *~*
Overall I am super happy with this brush, it is exceptional value for money, there has been no shedding or any problems with this brush at all which I am super happy about. Especially considering that I paid just 75p!! I definately will be buying more from the range especially when there is a sale on. Most definately recommended and I award this 5 stars! I would do give it more if I could.
Summary: An excellent offering from E.L.F
