I have been using elf's studio brushes for a while now so my opinion i believe is fair!
I have the Blush Brush,Powder brush,Stippling Brush,and Complexion Brush
|From left to right --- Stippling brush, Powder brush, Complexion Brush, Blush brush|
I also have the face kabuki brush
Most are good, such as my favorite for applying liquid foundation is the flat top powder brush. I'd say if you are on a budget get this brush (3$). The blush brush is small and i have used it for contouring but its not the best. the complexion brush i have used for blush but again not the best. the stippling brush is the worst out of all. I have used it for foundation, blush, bronzer, highlighting, but the only way i can use it and it works would be applying my translucent powder after foundation. All of the studio brushes run for 3.00$ a good value for soft brushes that don't shed from my experience. The kabuki face brush is so soft and i love to use it for travel and to apply powder with. this brush runs for 5.00$
