Review: e.l.f. Studio Contour Brush

Hello :)

A while ago I decided to invest in some more e.l.f. brushes, and this was one that ended up in my virtual shopping basket. 


e.l.f. sayThis new anti bacterial, synthetic haired Taklon brush is softer and more absorbent and can be used with wet or dry products. Be a professional makeup artist and create a flawless look with this e.l.f. studio brush! The domed bristles pick up a lot of color and deposit it onto the eyelid for extra definition. Adds depth close to the lash line and in the corner of the eye. Use to sweep colors along the lash lines for concentrated colour.

I say: I love the e.l.f. Studio line of brushes, they're fantastic quality and brilliant value. The contour brush is no exception. It's lovely and soft, yet stiff enough to be used in the crease and for smudging colour under the lower lash line. 


e.l.f. sayDip brush into eye shadow color and tap off any excess powder. Apply to eyelid for high intensity colour.

I say: The contour brush picks up product really well and applies it perfectly thanks to the shape and size of the brush. It's perfectly soft to use on the eyelid and lower lash line.

  1. Thanks for the review lovely :) Would you say this could be used as an alternative to a pencil brush? The second photo looks like it might possibly... x

  2. I've been wondering about this one too, does it blend as you apply in the crease? I love my MAC 217 but sometimes for more detailed work it's a little big for blending in the crease.

  3. Brush head of your brush seems to be longer then mine, I wonder if e.l.f. has changed the design again. Or it could just be my screen.
    (more on the topic:

  4. Rachel - You're welcome! Yes I'd say it would be a great alternative :) xx

    Small Town Gal - Yes it does blend! I find it's the perfect size for creasework :) xx

    Liisk - I bought my brush fairly recently so it is possible that they've changed it, although it could just be the angle of the photograph xx

  5. Thanks for the review doll!It looks like a nice product!!

  6. You're welcome lovely. It is :) xx
