Elf Studio line Review

Hi guys,, finally a review on the ELF studio line brushes.. :D I waited for my other purchases to arrive before I do a review. I must reiterate that I am not a pro with brushes and I do not own other brushes except these (aside from fashion 21 eyeshadow brushes). These are just my thoughts and opinion. :D Look BF edited this picture for me.. hahaha love it!! anyways, let me start off with my most favorite brush from my ELF haul.

ELF Blending Brush
Expertly blends multiple eye shades while softening dramatic edges and fine lines. Brush can also multitask – use it to set powder or liquid concealer.

I know this is not from their studioline, however, this brush is LOVE (for me)!! hahaha This one is their new blending brush, apparently, the old version sucks. This brush is made of soft bristles, has a round ferrule and it is also fluffy and dense. I love the size of the brush bristles which is perfect for contouring and blending eyeshadow. This does not shed too when washed. I highly recommend this brush especially who are newbie to makeup since it is very affordable. For a dollar, I want MORE!!!!

Complexion Brush and Powder Brush


Complexion Brush
-Creates an even and natural finish
-Expertly sweeps all types of powders across the entire face and sculpts features beautifully
-Use with pressed, loose, or translucent powders, blush or bronzer

This brush is really soft and fluffy. No Shedding at all. This is perfect for blush and bronzer application. I love the fact that it is big and it almost covers the whole temple of my cheeks. This applies blushes and bronzer sheerly. The downside of this brush is kinda flat. It's not good for contouring in my opinion. I still have to hold the base of this brush bristles to have a steady and more defined aplication.

Powder Brush
-Creates a professional sculpted look
-Full coverage color

-Use for powder or blush for perfect contouring


This brush has a flat top which gives off a perfect coverage. Very soft and full. I use this for buffing my foundation/ powder and it gives me a more even finish. Some says it could be used in applying liquid foundation and blushes/ bronzer too. i have yet to try using this on a liquid foundation, some even say that it is better tham MAC 187. I will definitely repurchase another one.

Eyeshadow "c" Brush
-Creates the perfect smokey eye
-The medium size brush gives more control for more specific blending needs
-Use with any powder eyeshadow product for color blending


I am not fond of this brush at all. Although soft, dense and does not sheds, i find it hard to use . :S The size of the brush itself is really small in height but it is wider in width. Also, I find this flat and thin for a normal eyeshadow brush. Perhaps, I will still have to learn more on how to use this to get that precise eyeshadow application.

ELF Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
Create a healthy and natural glow all year long. The Blush highlights the cheeks to add a flush of color, while the Bronzer accents and contours cheekbones for beautiful definition.


The packaging is very sleek. Love the big mirror that comes with it. It looks like NARS Orgasm/Laguna duo. The color of the blush is peachy pink with gold shimmers and the bronzer is a bit shimmery. I am not fond of bronzers but this one is really nice, perfect as a bronzer per se or for contouring purposes.

ELF Eyebrow Kit
Create brows that are fuller, thicker, and more defined! The pigmented wax defines and shapes brows and the color complementing setting powder keeps them looking arched and perfected. The doubled sided taklon brush has one side to help arch your brows while the other side aids in filling them in. This duo provides lasting color definition for a naturally beautiful look.

This product is really impressive. This brow kit consists of a gel and powder. The color is very pigmented that is why you have to be careful in applying this. I got mine in dark and it looks natural when applied. You could control the color by layering more for darker and defined brows or for a natural finish, use a bit of the gel part only. The brush that comes with it is not helpful for me. I have to use my other eyebrow brush instead.

Here are there new products that I am looking forward to BUY!!! haha
