Recently my makeup brush collection has grown quite a bit. For Christmas my best friend actually gifted me a brush set from Sephora which had tons of new brushes I've been playing with and trying out these past few weeks. One brush I just keep reaching for even over my most high end brushes is the E.L.F. Blending Eye Brush.
I really thought this brush deserves an honourable mention because not many people really give E.L.F. Brushes a try. When I was first beginning to dabble into makeup, I only owned E.L.F. Brushes. They are incredibly affordable ranging from a dollar to three which is just crazy cheap. There's brushes on the market now that are over $100 so to find a brand that makes affordable ones is very rare.
The Blending Eye Brush is different from most blending brushes. The bristles are shorter and more dome shaped which allows you to blend shadows in without fully sweeping the colour off. I usually like to blend out my harsh shadows with a neutral tone so I always use this brush, dab on a bit of product and blend blend blend. It always helps me define my colours better and blends out any harsh lines in my eye look. I even recently picked up a second one of these to use clean just for lighter handed blending.
As you're usually blending in the outer eye area, you want to make sure that your brush isn't too harsh in that sensitive region. These bristles are soft and don't ever scratch my lid. In the winter months my eyes need more attention because they tear up easier and this brush lets me do my makeup gently without causing any irritation. I've also seen a few reviews that mention the shedding on this brush and personally, I have not seen any fall out. The bristles are still all in tact and I've had it for about half a year now. I believe maybe E.L.F. upped their formulations and I've noticed their brush stability has increased. Overall, for a buck I think this brush is just absolutely amazing. It's a staple in my everyday routine and since I find myself picking this one up instead of higher end brushes I really think it's one to compete. For such a low price tag, I think ya'll should give it a shot.
