Product review: ELF Studio Stipple brush

Here's another E.L.F. product review, the  E.L.F. Studio Stipple brush. I opted to buy this brush mainly out of curiosity. I've been getting mixed reviews, so might as well try and experience it for myself. 

Again, E.L.F. never fails to give reasonably priced items for its consumers. For Php249.75 I think the price is just right. (although it's cheaper online) This is how the brush looks like:

The brush felt smooth but it's not that dense. When I first washed it I didn't experience any fallout and there was no bleeding. I also didn't experience any fallout when I first used it on my face. (Great job for this one!)

I first tried this using my liquid foundation but unfortunately, I was not satisfied with its performance. Since the brush is not that dense it took me a long time  stippling to achieve the so called "airbrush" look. I was about to give up on this brush until I tried using it for my NYX rouge cream blush. I love how this brush gave me a soft blended and very natural look on my cheeks. Sorry this is the best shot I got. I hope you can see the blush. :)

At times, the saying "You get what you pay for" really holds true. At a cheap price I don't think I can really complain that much. :) However, this brush can be very useful in applying cream blushes since you only need to cover a small area to use the brush. I really love how it worked on my blush. Will I recommend this brush? Yes, I will, but only for cream blushes. You can save your denser stippling brush for your liquid foundation. 

Do you have your own ELF Stippling brush? I would love to hear your thoughts! :)


  1. Reading your post made me want to try cream blush ons. I am a sucker for make up. Will keep my self updated with your reviews and beauty tips. Perfect blog to follow! I hope you can follow back.

  2. Beautiful blush application! Very natural! Thanks for the review. I almost bought an elf stippling brush but decided against it because I already owned several stippling brushes from Suesh.

    I hope you can drop by my blog too :)

  3. I have the same observation - the brush was less dense than I thought it actually is although no fallouts and very soft to the touch. But I do like using it with my 4U2 Lovelight BB Powder. The brush gives me a soft flawless finish that looks natural. :)

    I must try the brush too with cream blush, it looks great on you! :)

  4. Thank you for this! I was about to buy this online and I'm glad I was able to read your review first. Not really a fan of cream blushes so this stippling brush might not be a brush for me. But maybe you can try Suesh's stippling brush for liquid foundation application. It's the BEST stippling brush I have so far. :)

    And oh, maybe you could drop by my page and check out my reviews on other ELF products :)


  5. Thanks ladies! I appreciate your comments!

  6. I feel exactly the same way about my elf stippling brush. :)
