e.l.f. Powder Brush: Worth it?

Hey everyone! I'm baaack with a little mini review for y'all. So I went to Target yesterday to buy groceries, but somehow ended up in the beauty section.  I got hooked into buying some new products, one of which is the e.l.f. powder brush. See I had never heard of this brush, but in the packaging, I thought it was a contouring brush because the bristles were pressed flat. I know that a lot of e.l.f.'s brushes have different intended purposes but I never expected this brush to be almost a flat top kabuki. Anyway, let me stop rambling and jump right in. 

This brush is part of their "Studio Line" of brushes, marked by a very sleek and professional handle, which tend to be around $3 each, which I think is a steal for the quality. So this brush is marketed as a "Powder Brush", honestly I think it is a flat top kabuki because it's very very very dense but 
surprisingly, really soft. 

Like I want this on my face forever. 
I believe this brush is marketed for powder foundations, but I like to use it for liquid because it buffs liquid foundation out like a dream. Since this is a synthetic hair brush, it doesn't steal any of your product, which is always a plus and the brush is more durable through multiple washes.  

However, I tried to use this brush with a whipped foundation to see if it worked better with whipped products, and it kinda worked, it didn't blend the foundation very well which was weird considering it caused a airbrushed finish with the liquid.

 For the price, I think this brush is amazing for buffing foundation out, and I think for the price it's worth trying it out.  I think that this is a great drugstore brush that won't set you back too much and you end up with a decent brush because I know how difficult it is to find good brushes at the drugstore. 

That's all I've got for you today!
 Have you tried this brush yet? Or do you have a favorite drugstore brush?

Hi there! I'm India, a girl just living on this crazy rollercoaster called life. I tend to think my specialty is in drugstore products but I can dabble in high end sometimes (but my wallet can't)


  1. I've been wanting to try an Elf brush for a while now, this one sounds really good!

    1. I would definitely recommend the studio line, the regular ones aren't as good, plus it's only like 2 dollars more!

  2. I've tried e.l.f Stippling brush and that one is amazing! i've been wanting to try this one for ages, hopefully i can pick up soon :)


  3. These brushes look amazing and I really like the way they look. I've never tried them. Maybe I'll give it a go. Great post.
