^ I'd be interested to know if it's that similar to NARS... if so, sign me up!

I love their makeup brushes. For $1 you can't beat it.

I bought a blusher brush from the studio line. It's currently falling apart with minimal use. I know we all like a bargain but these are not good quality products.

I really like their eyeshadow and concealer brushes. They are BRILLIANT. I've never tried the Studio brushes though.

I've used a few things with ELF and I like them. The brushes I haven't fallen apart and I've had mine for almost a year and I wash mine too. I'm sure they don't have products that are as great as say MAC but there still good.

I see they have put out some new brushes:



The new eye blending brush looks slightly slimmer than the regular:


I think I'd like the bamboo brush better, simply because it looks more flexible. Also, I've read that these brushes are REALLY soft (and they're cruelty free and environmentally friendly).

The funny thing is that they are $5 in the States, and people are complaining about the price. Please They're almost twice the price in Europe, stop complaining. $5 is nothing for a brush comparable to MAC brushes.

That's the brush I mentioned in my last post - the bristles came out of the handle while I was washing it. I have had no problems with the brushes from the regular line but with these I would be wary to purchase more.

i wonder if they are updating the 'complexion' brush because the current one is bad quality. they have copied the styling from ecotools which are also cheap and cruelty free brushes.

Two of the eye blending brushes and it happened to both of them.

I have two brushes from the regular line and both broke within days of receiving them (and I wasn't hard on them at all).

I like the highlighter.. It works better than some of the more pricey ones I've tried. I also have a mineral eyeshadow that I like a lot. Overall though, I prefer NYC for cheapie cosmetics.

I love ELF!

I don't have too much money right now, so ELF is a great brand that hasn't disappointed me.

I don't like their $1 dollar stuff though, i prefer the mineral and studio line. The mineral primer eyeshadow, mineral eyeshadows and studio brushes are amazing!
