Review: ELF [ flat top ] Powder Brush

I don't own a lot of brushes. But I have the BASIC ones that a person really needs. I don't have ( yet ) a set of brushes from just one brand,my brushes came from different brands. 
And as a beginner, I think I have everything I need. 

This particular brush that I will be talking about is a very multi-functional one. I reach for this every single time I do my makeup. It's simply amazing! ♥
And of course, I am talking about THE famous ELF flat top powder brush. :) 

PRICE: Php 249.75 
But you can buy this from the US for $3.00. 

" This new anti bacterial, synthetic haired Taklon brush is softer and more absorbent and can be used with wet or dry products. Be a professional makeup artist and create a flawless look with this e.l.f. studio brush!
-Creates a professional sculpted look
-Full coverage color
-Use for powder or blush for perfect contouring
*Vegan Friendly "

I am using this brush for months already, and I LOVE it ever since I started using it.
I use it to apply liquid foundation. to buff out my cream foundation, to set my face with powder and to put on some blush. Sometimes I also use it to contour my face. That is how VERSATILE it is! :) 

* I am sorry if it's dirty. :P 

I love this brush sooo so much! ♥ 
Wanna know why? :) Here are the PROS.

* It is super soft and dense. 
* It doesn't shed at all... not even ONCE. 
* It is multi functional
* It's vegan friendly. [ synthetic ] 
* It is very very affordable. 
* Amazing product for it's price. 
* The brush looks chic. I love black brushes because it looks so professional. 
* Available in all leading malls with ELF counters. eg. SM Dept. Stores, Watsons, Robinsons and etc. 
[ you can also find it online. ] 

* The only con I think is, the handle isn't that sturdy. 
[ mine was detached, but I used a super glue so it is all good now. :D ] 
* Other than that, I can't think anymore CONS. :)

Overall, I am in love with this product. I use it every day, all the time! And it never fail me. I love it, love it, LOVE IT! ♥ 
I cannot say enough good words about the product. I kn ow there are a lot more brushes better than this, but this ELF brush will always have a special place in my heart. :) 

Will I repurchase? 
I don't think I need to repurchase one anytime soon. If ever i lose it or break it or whatever, I will for sure! :) 

Will I recommend?
YES! Absolutely.
This is a must have in every girl's makeup stash! AFFORDABLE AND SO USEFUL! ♥

Who owns the same brush?! I hope you guys love it as much as I do. :) And if you don't have this yet, definitely check it out! :)

  1. I have this same brush. And it bleeds... When you wash it and remove the water, you'll notice black liquid oozing out of it. Hence I only use it for powder products, so that whatever that black stuff is wont get on my skin. :P Maybe just my brush. But you should check out yours. ^_^

    1. oooh. really?! i have this brush since last year..and i have washed it a lot of times already but didn't experience any bleeding..

    2. Really wanted to try Elf brushes sis! Hindi rin kasi ako mahilig bumili ng makeup brushes, so I only own 2 or 3 which are cheap. Anyway, many blogger really like this Elf brush, that's why di na ko nagulat kung bakitlove mo din sya. Nice review anyway. :) Will definitely buy this soon.

    3. i like brushes but i don't have enough budget to afford the higher ends, yet. i think kasi brushes are good investment.. but this ELF brush is affordable yet very versatile. i simply love it! :) THANKS! And yes, you should definitely try it. :)

  2. Oh well. :P Maybe mine's just a bad batch. :P Maybe i should try buying another one? :P Or better yet buy a Charm Flat Top! :D

    1. Yep.maybe. Or sigma!hehe its a bit more expensive but i think its a good investment.

  3. Hi sis! ask ko lng ung elf brush ko kasi napansin ko may smell sya, parang chemical or something, basta hindi ko maintindihan tapos nagsshed sya ng sobra. Naexperience nyo ba yun sa brushes nyo?

  4. Nako pinaiipunan ko din yang sigma brushes, although may isa pang brand ako na nakita, its a dupe ng sigma but cheaper and its by makeupbytoni. :) I think parang 2k + for a set of 7 ba un or something...

  5. really?! no! i didnt experience anything bad tlga sakin... well the only thing is natanggal yun handle but kinabit ko ng mighty bond.. but those, di tlga...

  6. oooh yeah.. i have heard about that. hehe.. konti lang aman kasi yun difference eh.. :) i heard nga merong free shipping yun makeupbytoni... hehe i dont know yet pero if makakamura i might just buy that.. and sigma's kabuki kit. hehe ewan.. i really want kasi yun make me crazy nila eh.. :P i am really confused on what to purchase.. i am still saving up though.. BUT hopefully before christmas.. parang kasya na money ko! EEEK! exciting!! hehehe

  7. waah! ako gusto ko ung mrs bunny na set ng sigma! :) tinatanong nga ako ni bf kung ano gusto ko bday gift gusto ko sana sabihin un kaya lng nahihiya ako kasi super mahal! baka ibili lng nya ako sa divi pag ganun... hahaha :p meron pko isa nakita sis ung MAC na hello kitty brushes super cutie!!!! :) hanapin mo sa google sis matutuwa ka... :)
