REVIEW: elf Studio 11 Piece Brush Collection

7:11:00 PM

I received this brush set from a good friend who lives in Florida (see previous post).  I was ecstatic when I found out she actually bought this for me for no apparent reason at all...hehehe

I have been using this brush set ever since I got my hands on it last May and I received a lot of positive feedback from my clients whenever I use these brushes on them.  They usually say "that feels so soft", and then ask me where I got these brushes from. So, after using each of these brushes for about 3 months now, its high time that I let you know what I think about it.

Product Info from ELF

What I like about it...
* inexpensive
* made from synthetic fibers
* has very soft and fine bristles
* the brushes are dense enough and not flimsy at all
* sleek black handle
* each brush is about 7 inches in length
* comes with a water resistant brush case
* does not bleed even when thoroughly washed with soap
* does not shed even when cleaned with a brush cleaner
* works well with all skin types even those with sensitive skin

What I don't like...
* The smudge brush and the fan brush are practically useless. The smudge brush doesn't do what it is supposed to do since it's just too small.  The fan brush sheds, probably because the bristles are too thin, I feel like it needs to be thicker. 

My rating: 4 / 5

Overall these are awesome brushes considering the price.  They perform way better compared to other cheap brushes. I think these is a perfect brush set for beginners since they are affordable and very easy to work with.  I like most of the brushes that came with this set, I just wish the face brushes were a little more dense and packed. 

I also like the brush case that came with this set because it can be zipped and there is extra room for other brushes to fit. Do let me know what you think about these brushes.

I think some of the ELF Studio brush are now sold individually on our local elf counters. But if you want to buy the set, you can check out local online shops on either or multiply it's sold around Php1,200 - Php1,400 depending on the seller.

Until next time.
