ELF Studio Powder Brush

I have read so many good reviews on ELF makeup, especially their brushes, and a trip to Target invariably finds me scanning the shelves for something interesting to try out.  I finally made up my mind and picked up the powder brush from the ELF Studio line.

The brush comes packaged in a transparent plastic pouch that can be used to store it in.  The handle is a classy matte black with a glossy black ferrule portion.  It's a flat-top brush with synthetic, black bristles.

My experience with this brush:  This is one of the most inexpensive brushes I have tried, and for this price, this is probably a good deal.  If, however, you are not really looking at it from a budget point of view, here's what I feel:
  • It looks classy and is reasonably soft - at least not really scratchy.  However, I have tried softer brushes from drugstore brands (Ecotools).
  • The brush I got shed quite a few bristles in the beginning.  While it doesn't shed at the same alarming rate now, I do find a stray bristle poking out every now and then (can actually see one in the second photo).
  • ELF calls this a powder brush, but I use this mainly for buffing/blending.  I haven't found it an efficient powder brush and/or a foundation brush.
