This was my very first makeup brush and the first time I ever wore foundation. For it's price, it's actually pretty good. The bristles weren't scratchy or cheap and felt relatively nice. I have since then moved on to the elf pro brushes.

I don't like this brush at all. It does not apply foundation very well. I ended up with strips on my face all the time. I have to use my fingers or other brush after using this brush. I used it probably 3 times and i am done with it.

This brush is an okay brush. I don't use it as an foundation brush, it leaves lines. So I just you this to place my foundation and I'll blend it out with other brushes. But what do you expect it's cheap.

This is a great foundation brush for when you're just getting into make-up. I did notice it leaves streaks every once in awhile! Keep an eye out for that when applying with this brush! It's a great brush for the price, I'd have to say.

I used this for applying liquid foundations for a while and cleaned my brush every day but I still got a lot of build up and it was gross. Also, the application of the makeup was often streaky with this brush

The brush is pretty decent, but it's not something I reach for when I do my makeup. The ferrule came apart from the handle but with some glue, it's fixed. I guess that's what you get for a $1.00 brush!

I love this little brush. Not only is it a steal price wise. But it's the perfect size to apply foundation. I've had my brush for years and no bristles have fallen out or broken off. Plus it's super soft!

Leaves streaks and holds too much product. The wooden stick and metal portions actually came apart on mine after about a week. I really like elf products but this one where the quality was just junk.

I don't really use foundation brushes like this -I prefer stippling brushes or sponges- but it's kind of streaky on the face overall. I've mainly been using it to clean up lines around bold lipsticks.

The price is cheap BUT the brush is horrible. I use a mineral foundation and the brush left streaks on my face. It didn't blend at all. I would not recommend this brush even though it is so cheap. Spend a little more for better quality!
