Company’s Description

The tapered head of the Small Tapered Brush makes application easy for reaching small crevices for a flawless finish. This precision brush is perfect for contouring and creating even coverage. Use with powder to set under the eye, on the hollows of the cheek to contour with bronzer, or use with foundation to achieve a light finish.

e.l.f.’s new Small Tapered Brush has been added to the company’s Studio line and is said to be good for covering small areas of the face. Keep reading for photos and my thoughts on the quality of this brush.

Quality: 9.75/10

This is a small (as far as face brushes go), rounded, fluffy brush made of synthetic bristles. The brush is also on the narrow side–about 1 inch in diameter.

The bristles are amazingly soft. You won’t feel any scratching on the skin.

This is a brilliant brush for applying powders in small areas on the face. I use it most frequently to apply highlighter to the cheekbones, but you can also use it to contour, to apply bronzer or blush, and to set your face with powder.

The only area in quality that his brush is lacking is in the integrity of the ferrule and handle. The two pieces are connected with mediocre glue, and will likely detach after a few washes. You can take superglue and put them back together.

Price: 10/10

$3.00 is an absolute steal for this high-quality brush.

    I’m digging the look of this brush! May have to pick it up if I see it at Target.

    Thanks for the review. I’ve been looking for a small face brush, and will give this one a try. I like the ELF studio crease brush for applying cream eyeshadows, but 2 of the 3 I have bought fell apart before I even got to use them once. The glue is seriously lacking!
