The ELF Stippling Brush Review...

Hey lovelies!

I'm just on the train to sheffield and I've never really tried blogging on my phone before, but seen as this is the first time I've had chance to sit down in the past week and have a little time to myself, I thought I would give it a go and see hoe I feel. I usually hate writting big long essays on my bb, but I'm really in the mood to do a post. So anyway stop babbling!

I bought 3 elf brushes about a month ago while taking advantage of the free delivery they have. I love so much of thw stuff from ELF, and I could order a new thing everyday, so I tend to make a mental note of everything I want and then order them when they have some kind of offer. I've been wanting the stippling brush for ages but it was never available when I look, so as soon as I saw it I grabbed it with both hands and wouldn't let go!

I am in LOVE with this brush.

I've never used a stippling brush before, so I don't know how it compares to the likes of Mac, but I have never ever experienced such a lovely brush to apply my foundation. It applies a perfectly even layer over my skin, not too much but not too little, and really really does make my skin look flawless. I have been using it with the same foundations I always use, both budget and more higher end, and it really does make a huge difference using this brush to my usual MAC brush. At £3.50 it is such an amazing brush - I would pay 5 times this much for it! Amazing amazing - I can't get this over to you enough!

 I also bought the powder brush that everyone raves about, and I have to say I can see why. I have been using this for cream blush, and it applies really well, without leaving too much on the face or leaving streaky lines. This brush gives you the opportunity to build cream blush, which I like because I have been know to be a bit heavy handed in the past.

(Again, sorry for the awful lighting - this is NOT an angled brush, I promise!)

The third brush I got was the complexion brush. Ilve been using this to sweep powder and bornzer across my face, and again its great as it picks up and applies just the right amount, without leaving me looking cakey or orange.

On the whole these brushes went above and beyond my expectations. I love them all and will definitely be repurchasing. What struck me the most when I first got them was how amazingly SOFT they were - so so so silky.

I have used these brushes everyday since I got them - could not recommend them more.

Lots of Love

(Sorry for the AWFUL lighting in all of these pictures)


  1. They all look really good!
    I haven't tried any ELF products yet xx

  2. Yeah your stipple looks much denser than mine!! Annoyed at elf for being inconsistent.
