Elf Studio Stipple Brush Review – Hi Everyone, I always used my fingers to apply makeup. Whenever people asked why don’t you use makeup brushes, I am like I love my fingers *rofl*. Yes, I thought my fingers give me the best finish and I can manage like this only. But soon I discovered that makeup brushes can actually make a HUGE difference. If my fingers give me “best” finish then makeup brushes give me “bestest finish”. And since then I am using makeup brushes but MAC brushes are so expensive for a college girl like me. So, I bought some ELF brushes online as they are dirt cheap and also great for beginner like me.
I wish this brand comes soon to India, I so want to try its each and every product. 😀

What the Elf Studio Stipple Brush Review claims –
Use this brush with any liquid or powder face product such as foundation, blush or bronzer to build your coverage from sheer to heavy. Perfect for adding definition to cheekbones or highlighting with soft layers.
My experience with Elf Stipple Studio brush:
The brush is very soft to touch and they will not harm the face. The brush is not dense at all so it can be deformed if not used carefully. I have washed this Elf Studio Stipple Brush many times and I’m yet to experience any shedding, which is really good. The packaging is quite sleek and it’s easy to use even if you are new with makeup. Since the bristles are made of taklon they can be used for both powder and cream makeup. There are two types of bristle black and white. Black are small bristle where as white are longer one. The two different sizes make it ideal for creating an airbrushed finish. The white brushes do not retain any color of makeup when used I thought they would.
I used Elf Stipple Studio brush to apply my liquid foundation and blush (both cream and powder). It’s easy to blend and faster and gives you a flawless looking face. Whenever I use it with liquid foundation the bristles they tend to clump together which makes the application tougher. Then I tried it with cream blush and the experience was a flawless looking which I loved the most. Now I use Elf Studio Stipple Brush to apply cream blush only and I’m quite happy with it. I think these brushes are great alternative to high-end brands and are “must” have for everyone. Though you will not get the MAC finish with them but it still proves an outstanding pick for using with cream makeup.
