Elf Cosmetics Professional Concealer Brush

Several months ago I purchased the Elf Cosmetics Professional Concealer Brush at Target for only $1.00.  Most of my face and eye brushes come from Elf Cosmetics, so when I saw this concealer brush for $1.00 I thought it would be worth a try.  
I've never used a concealer brush because I  normally use my fingers to apply concealer, so keep in mind that I really cannot compare this brush to any other concealer brush out there.
The overall length of the Elf Cosmetics Professional Concealer Brush is pretty average, measuring at 14 centimeters/a little over 5 inches. The wand is very slim, and as seen from the pictures the actual brush head is very small measuring at about 1/2 of a centimeter in lenght/width. 
The bristles are very sturdy yet gentle enough to be used on your face (even the under eye area). I haven't experienced any shedding whatsoever, which is pretty awesome considering I have experienced a bit of shedding with some of Elf's other brushes.  Just keep in mind because the concealer brush head is so small you're not able to cover your entire face all at once -- it's really meant to be a "spot" concealer brush, to cover small imperfections.
Since using this concealer brush, I feel that I can better control how much and how evenly I apply my concealer to cover small blemishes.  Particularly when I use a liquid concealer (vs a stick concealer) I find that I am able to use less concealer while covering up the same amount of area. I just dip the brush into a tiny tab of concealer, gently dab the brush on the desired spots on my face, and then effortlessly blend the concealer in. 

As silly as this sounds...it did take a while for me to figure out "how" to use a concealer brush, but now after a few months I can finally say I have it down! My advice would be to use a little amount of concealer and work your way up, because you really don't need much when using this brush -- and  you can always add more as you blend.

  3. I have a few elf brushes and they are decent. I am really careful when washing the larger brushes especially getting the head and bristles too wet where it messes up the glue holding it. They do shed more after they metal part it left out wet for too long.

    1. I agree, I've had a few where the glue went completely loose, but I had it for YEARS so it was definitely not a loss!
