Review: ELF Make-Up Brushes

In my last ELF shopping spree I bought a few make-up brushes that I decided would be better reviewed as a whole rather than individually. Overall I really do believe that ELF make-up brushes are good value for money despite the £1.50 price tag! Read on to see how they fared.
What ELF says about their Powder Brush:
Use on the face to apply, blend or contour powder products evenly and flawlessly.
- The soft rounded corners delivers a light blend of colour on the face.
- Perfect for applying both pressed or loose foundations, bronzers or blush powders.

I bought this to use for my matte face powder as I've been using a really rubbish one for a while where everytime I use it, I get the bristles falling out on my face and before you know it you've only got half a brush. This brush didn't have many great reviews but I decided to give it a little try anyway and was immediately disappointed to find that all of the bristles were pointing in about 18 different directions and some of the bristles had fallen out in the packaging.

It doesn't feel as soft as the other brushes but it does the job well and I suppose for the price you can't expect miracles but it works well although I'm not sure how much brush I'll have left after I wash it!
What ELF says about their Eyeshadow Brush:
- Specially sheered brush tip absorbs the perfect amount of eye shadow and provides long lasting colour saturation.
- The comfort curved brush contours the eye with natural gliding strokes for easy and accurate eye shadow application.

I bought this about a year ago now and it's still in the exact same condition now than when it was when I bought it. It's soft, the bristles don't feel scratchy on the eye or hurt and it washes up like a dream. For £1.50 it's a definite bargain and if you're after a regular eyeshadow to give a wash of colour over the eyelid then this one is definitely for you!
What ELF says about their Eye Crease Brush:
- This domed bristle brush picks up a lot of eye colour and sweeps it onto the eyelid to create bold definition.
- Blends and contours in the crease and corners of the eye.
- Great for smudging shadow into the lash line for a smoky effect.

Unlike the other brushes, this brush feels a little prickly on the skin and the bristles aren't the same size so it feels a bit scratchy which you have to be careful about when using on the eye area. Other than that this brush works really well in the crease and it's the perfect size for doing the job nicely.
What ELF says about their Blending Eye Brush:
- Expertly blends eyeshadows while softening dramatic edges and fine lines.
- Helps to set powder or liquid concealers.

This brush is lovely and soft and blends eyeshadows like a dream. It is a bit large so if you wanted to really concentrate on the crease you'd find it a bit difficult to get it precise but as an everyday all over blending brush this is perfect.
What ELF says about their Concealer Brush:
- Creates flawless and smooth application with the synthetic bristles brushes for wet and dry products.
- Conceals blemishes, red spots and darkness with precision treatment.
- Provides even and full coverage

Unlike the others this brush feels quite stiff and upon first use the bristles were really itchy when I used it on the skin. This brush also has a different feel to it in the way that it's not too soft like the others - it feels somewhat cheaper than the others and yet they're the exact same price. Despite this it works really well and as it's small it really gets into the little places you find hard to conceal when using your fingers/a regular brush.

Overall I can't fault the prices of these brushes and they work amazingly well for what they are. We can't expect the world but considering the price they're very, very good - I've tried worst brushes for more expense so technically these are a bit of a bargain. If you're looking for some cheapy make-up brushes that do the job nicely then these are for you.
