Super cheap got it for a dollar. Lasted maybe 2 months then glue came off and broke. It left streaks and just wasn't that good. Yeah it was cheap but I would recommend wasting a couple more dollars and getting a better foundation brush to last

I bought this brush for $1 while on vacation after realizing I had left my $35 M.A.C. at home. Its slightly smaller/thinner than any of my other foundation brushes, but I have no real complaints. It works great for either concealer or foundation, and for the price I bought a couple of them to keep in travel bags.

This is not my way of applying foundation. This brush streaks like crazy! To be honest, I don't think it's the brush's fault. Generally, these flat foundation brushes are like this and streak so so much. The application is not precise and all of them streak. I've tried a variety of drugstore and high end flat foundation brushes, hoping to like one but I don't. My favorite foundation brush would be a stippling brush or a beauty blender.

I usually love e.l.f. cosmetic brushes, but this brush just did not do it for me. When I used this brush for my foundation it kept leaving the streak marks on my face. I eventually gave up and used my fingers to blend it on my skin because this brush did not do me any justice. Better off with a sponge applicator.

For the price I will give this brush 4 stars. If it was more than $10 I would be upset. I have found myself using this brush to apply face masks instead of for foundation because it was causing streaks on my face. I would just recommend a beauty blender for foundation instead.

I use this brush to apply under eye concealer, not foundation. It works well for getting the product up under the lashes, but I always have to blend it in with my finger, which I generally do under my eyes anyways so that doesn't bother me a ton. But this brush definitely wouldn't be satisfactory on its own.

This brush didn't really work well with foundation, left it streaky and gross. However, it does work really well with primers and moisturizers! And of course, it's very affordable and can use for several different things.

Love this brush. I use it for lots of things, mostly to apply a lighter shade of foundation to my highlight spots when I do my makeup. I also use this brush to apply facial masks. I love how soft the bristles are. Great brush for cheap price. I would repurchase many times. Clean it properly and it will last longer.

I love this brush. I use it to apply my setting powder to bake on my concealer. get the one with brown bristles from Walmart, target, etc. if you go to dollar tree, they have an elf foundation brush just like this but with orange bristles, it sucks! stiff and cheaper quality, best for applying facial masks.

Sturdy, cheap, and feels good on the face. This is pretty much everything I've wanted in a makeup brush! I've actually been using it for years to apply my masks and it works beautifully. The hair is soft and easy to clean, and I've never had a problem with it shedding. Can't beat a $2 brush from Target!
