Review: ELF - Studio Stipple Brush

It was on my list of to review things but it was also requested by Stavroula

They say ~ The layered bristles create a soft airbrushed look that's perfect for applying foundation or adding colour definition to cheekbones or highlighting with soft layers. Use this brush with any liquid or powder face product such as foundation, blush or bronzer to build your coverage from sheer to heavy.

I say ~ I really wanted to adore this brush and while I do have positive things to say about it its not good for stippling on foundation. The bristles aren't hard enough, when you put pressure on them they bend and flop. I tried using this with various liquid foundations and it didn't work with any of them, I much prefer the studio powder brush as its more dense and less floppy.

However that all being said I am using this brush daily because it really does make the application of powdered blushes, both mineral and pressed easy. Its very difficult to accidentally add too much and end up looking like Aunt Sally. Its nice and soft as well, much nicer feeling on your skin than the blush / bronzer standard brush line. Really not sure about the application of a cream blush though as they recommend.

Depending on what you wanted it for would depend on if I recommend it or not. For liquid foundation though, not at all.
