Since making my first Elf purchase in January I have always wanted to try the brushes from their studio line and I finally took the plunge and ordered 3 brushes a couple weeks ago. Once again I must comment on the fast delivery from Elf as I recieved it within days of placing my order which was great as I hate waiting for my orders to come. I choose the complexion brush as I really needed a new face brush to apply my powder and then just randomly choose the blush and precision brush and I have now been using the brushes for 2 weeks.
The studio line brushes from elf are synthetic and made from Taklon hair and threy are anti bacterial. Products within the studio line are priced at £3.50 iwhich is still a bargain instead of £1.50 on the normal line. My first observation before using the brushes were that they were very soft to the touch which is a pro for me as I do find some synthetic haired brushed to be quite hard or rough on the skin. Elf also state that the brushes can be used with wet or dry products.
Small Precision – £3.50
Elf says: Use to apply concealer, smooth on lip colour, or line eyes.
So far I have used this brush to line my lower lashes and find that it works well and it doesnt irritate my eyes when using it. I haven’t used it to apply lipstick as elf claims it can be used for but I will try it out soon however, I dont think I will be using it to apply concealer as it is a bit smaller than what I am used to for my concealer application.
Complexion Brush – £3.50
Elf says: Use with pressed, loose or translucent powders, blush or bronzer.
This has got to be my favourite brush from my order. I love the fact that it is dense enough to be used easily as a powder brush and the main pro is that it is so soft on my face. My previous powder brush was a cheap synthetic one too which actually cost more and was so hard on my face so I am happy that this brush was not like that.
Blush Brush – £3.50
Elf says: Use to apply blush or bronzer
I havent’t really got on well with this brush mainly because I find that when I am applying my blush it doesn’t go on easily when directly pointing it to my face. This is because of the shape the hairs form at the top of the brush. However, the brush works better when I use the brush on its side to apply my blusher. I do like the size of the brush but find the hairs could have been slightly more fuller and not so pointed at the top.
