Guys, I think I just discovered the best affordable foundation brush, and it’s from Elf, of all brands!
I never really paid atrention to Elf products in the past, but they caught my attention with the Jackie Aina collaboration, and they’ve held it since then with some really great releases and some surprisingly good products.
Elf Ultimate Blending Brush
Today, I will be reviewing their “Ultimate Blending Brush”. The name really says it all. This brush is a dream to use. It blends out foundation quickly and easily, leaving a streak-free, flawless finish.
I love the size of this brush, it is slightly bigger than the Real Techniques Buffing brush, so it covers a larger surface area of the face, and applying foundation takes less time.
The bristles are perfect. Soft, not too big, not too small, not too dense, but not too sparse, not scratchy, and easy to clean.
It works well with thick foundations, thinner ones like CC creams, and even stick foundations.
I also like the all black packaging. It kinda reminds me of the Marc Jacobs brushes. I know it is almost sacrilegious to compare Elf to Marc Jacobs 😂. But that’s how I feel, okay? 😔
The point is, it doesn’t look cheap or feel flimsy.
Would I recommend this?
Absolutely! I’m so impressed with how quickly this brush applies foundation. I also love the seamless, streak-free finish it gives. It’s just as good as my more expensive brushes, and you really can’t beat the $6 price tag. This is my current favourite foundation brush. It really is the Ultimate Blending Brush!
