Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

Cheap finds: e.l.f Studio Blush Brush

What can you get for P250 bucks? An appetizer at a nice resto, a Starbucks drink with a cookie on the side,  a really cute notebook (or two), or a muli-tasking brush like the e.l.f Studio Blush Brush! I think e.l.f should rename this to well, anything else but "blush brush". If one doesn't know much about makeup then one wouldn't be able to truly maximize this interesting tool!

This cheapo brush has taklon, surprisingly fine and soft hair. These bristles are densely-packed in a small, flat-ish brush head. Yes, small and flat, about the size of a regular foundation brush - just slightly fluffier. This shape allows for a more precise application of cheek color and contour, but it also opens up a world of possibilities.

You can use this e.l.f brush for applying heavy coverage powder and liquid foundation, as well as cream colors on the cheeks. Yes, you can also use this for highlighting the cheekbones and setting your makeup with translucent powder! It is equally effective as a brush for retouching makeup during the day - it's just the perfect size for mattifying the t-zone with your fave powder. 

I also like that this brush is low-maintenance. The bristles are synthetic and quick to dry, while the ferrule and handle are black, making them easier to clean. Basic, but practical.

So yes, if you have an extra P250 lying around, the e.l.f Studio Blush Brush is an excellent addition to your kit. ;) You can find e.l.f in Watsons!

Do you have this brush? What's your favorite way to use it?
