e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush - Powder Brush
Perhaps you have had a brush with elves? No? How about a brush by e.l.f.? Blogger Katie of My Lips But Better has, and now she shares the magic with an overview of the e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush.
The e.l.f. Studio Powder BrushA and MAC 109 for comparison
I have a confession to make... even though IaEUR(TMark)m a beauty blogger and people expect me to look nice constantly, sometimes IaEUR(TMark)m just too lazy to use base. That is especially true when IaEUR(TMark)m racing to get ready for class each morning. But then I found powder foundation and my life was completeaEUR| except that I didnaEUR(TMark)t have the best tool to apply it.
Therefore I attempted a kabuki brush, which can certainly be washed, except that the short stubby handle meant I couldnaEUR(TMark)t set it within my brush pda with the remainder my brushes.
I had been about to give up entirely once I stumbled onto the e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush. I wasnaEUR(TMark)t anticipating such excellent quality from a $3.00 brush but this one really proved me wrong! The compact brush head is perfect for picking up powder foundation and buffing it into the skin instead of just dusting it. ItaEUR(TMark)s basically a kabuki brush using a long handle, which will be precisely what I needed.

In addition , I love just how this aEURoepowder brushaEUR? applies my liquid foundation. It gives a smooth, flawless finish (similar to SephoraaEUR(TMark)s coveted #55 brush) when used in combination with MAC Face & Body or NARS Sheer Luminescence.
Why this brush is really cheap, I am only able to appear with two reasons: the bristles are synthetic, as well as the flat top means no messing with bristles that are tapered. Many people turn their noses up at artificial bristles, but in this case IaEUR(TMark)m really pleased with the quality. I'd compare the softness to my favourite EcoTools Blush Brush (or possibly a kitten?).
The synthetic bristles additionally make this a great brush for base because you can use alcohol-based quick dry brush cleansers without anxiety about drying out the bristles. More cleaning = less bacteria in your face, which hopefully means clearer skin.
The brush looks quite at home with the rest of my MAC brushes due to the sleek designA aEUR" it could be great to get a beginner makeup artist kit.
