ELF Brushes Product Review - A Year later

Hey Lovies!
I really wanted to re-share my thoughts on a few ELF makeup brushes. I have had them for a year now. I was not particularly drawn to this brand as I had thought it was too cheap to be any good!
But then I kept hearing about how great they were. Reviews claimed the application process was no different and plus they are made cruelty free & vegan. So being that were only $2 - $3 each I picked up a few!
ELF, Producct Review, makeup, Brushes, Beauty

Concealer Brush - This brush was good for small areas but not so much around the eye. I found that I still had to blend with a beauty blender or my finger to get rid of the streaky-ness. But any other area of the face was great. (This still holds true but have found myself not using it much)
Eyeshadow "C" Brush - This brush is nice and thick. Holds a good amount of product and places it exactly where I want it. Great for a bold eye. Does not go all over the place. (Still love it, holds enough color for both eyes)

Contour Brush - Awesome! Also very thick for an intense eye color. I use it for the crease color of the eyes, where the dark shade goes and use to contour the sides of the nose. Probably one of my favorites! My main go-to brushes. (I don't use this brush as much as I used to on the eyes but the nose contour , Yes)

Foundation Brush (white handle) - Just OK. I use it just for my CC Creams but honestly prefer my MAC foundation brush over this one. I am disappointed that the brush head seems to be coming loose already. (This brush has not fallen apart yet despite the loose head. But I still only use sparingly for primer, cc creams and such)

Small Stipple Brush - LOVE LOVE LOVE! My absolute favorite brush out of them all. Spreads product evenly and it is super soft. I can use it with any type of foundation and it works great. Now one of my "go-to" brushes. (This brush it still my main man! I use it almost everyday!)

Angled Blush Brush - Another LOVE of mine. Soft, spreads product where I want it to, and sticks there. The angle lays perfect against the cheekbones! (Another one that I still use everyday! Holds enough product for both sides of the face. Light application , not heavy.)

Overall after initially opening I loved how soft they were. I even appreciated the packaging instructions ;) which for even the newest makeup person,, such a great reference point!
They have not irritated my face at all and the plush softness of the brushes is much better then the Bare-minerals I have!

I recommend them as a starter set if you are just starting out on a collection and even if you are a pro they are great as a backup! ELF can often get underestimated as I had thought of it, but I am always so surprised at how well they actually work and I just love that they are all-Vegan !

So after a year I am still very pleased with the brushes as mentioned. I would still recommend. Just watch out for the cheaper, white handle brushes and pay attention to the brush heads. However the price alone is a no-brainer! Get on that Ladies!
