I don't know how people use any brush outside of the E.L.F. Studio brush range.
People seem to always be complaining about how their MAC brushes shed, their Sigma brushes aren't as soft as they would have hoped etc. etc.
Plus, they are EXPENSIVE. I don't know how people walk into a place like MAC or Sephora and walk out with a $30 or $40 brush. GUH. I wouldn't even spend that much on a brush for painting with!!!
The E.L.F. Studio brushes are so unbelievably soft, have never shed even a hair on me, and are CHEAP. $3 per brush? Only $15 for 11 brushes and a travel case on sale?
That's about $1.36 a brush.
Let's take a look, shall we?
They even come in individual plastic casing! Fancy.
Look how plush and lovely...
What was also nice was that E.L.F. includes a little packet/pamphlet detailing what each brush is used for. So if you're new to brushes, or if you're stumped on some of the names (like I was... I use multiple products for my "complexion" so what the heck is a complexion brush specifically for!?) and what they're used for then this is your little savior.
Take the jump for a full review!!
Now for happy time with my soft beauties...
From top to bottom, left to right -
Small Angle Brush
Eyeshadow "C" Brush*
Angled Foundation Brush
Small Smudge Brush
Small Precision Brush
Hopefully these photos can give you an idea of how lush and dense these are, as well as the different sizes; in my opinion the sizes, densities, and designs of all of them are perfect. I really have no complaints.

Now, you're probably wondering:
Wasn't this supposed to be an ELEVEN piece brush collection???
Well... yes, and it is but...
Son of a...
Essentially, E.L.F. f*cked up when they packaged my order.
They gave me two Complexion Brushes rather than one Complexion Brush and one Blush Brush. Which stinks because I was really interested in trying the Blush Brush, but since I use the Complexion Brush as a blush brush anyways it's really not THAT big of a deal, haha.
Other than that, I love these brushes (can you tell?)!! Trust me, if you were rubbing these all over your face, you would be making the same happy faces as I am in the pictures.
Normally these retail for $30 as a set, but if you're patient and can wait, E.L.F. does a BOGO free sale fairly regularly on their best sellers. Since this set is always listed as one of their best sellers, just pop this in your cart, add in the promo code, and voila!! You get half off of your purchase (so this set will only set you back $15), even if you don't buy two of the sets (do people realize you can do that on BOGO free offers? You don't have to buy two products, so long as you buy one then you get 50% off of that one product! Shabam!).
Do you have any brushes that can compare to the cost and quality of E.L.F. Studio brushes?
Which of these do you love/use the most?
