E.L.F Brushes Go Green!

Budget beauty brand, Eyes Lips Face (E.L.F) has introduced a range of eco-friendly, cruelty free makeup brushes to their ever expanding and increasingly popular range. The brushes are made from guilt free materials, as you can see in the image below and are currently being sold for £5.50 each – slightly more than their other ranges, but still cheaper than most other brands.

I tried out the Complexion Brush and Powder Brush which were lovely and soft, possibly a little too soft for my liking – but still presenting very good quality for the price and I think how you like your brushes to feel is something that’s very personal to you and how you apply your makeup!

I also tried the All Over Eyeshadow Brush which was lovely and soft again, still a little bit too soft (for my liking) but didn’t find that it affected my makeup application in a negative way, it’s more just how it felt in my hand.

The real stand out brush for me was the Flat Eyeliner Brush which was fabulously firm and applied my gel liners (and wet eyeshadows) brilliantly, and made it feel effortless on my part – even though I’m still trying to perfect my lining technique, so this is a big win for me.

The full range of brushes that are available are:

e.l.f. Mineral Angled Blush Brush
Create perfectly sculpted cheeks and defined cheekbones with this ultra soft, tapered brush.

e.l.f. Mineral Complexion Brush
The brush expertly sweeps all types of powders across the face and sculpts features beautifully for ultimate flawless coverage.

e.l.f. Mineral Concealer Brush
The tightly packed hair and tapered edge creates evenly blended colour for a smooth finish.

e.l.f. Mineral Foundation Brush
Flawlessly blend your foundation to create a beautiful and even complexion.

e.l.f. Mineral Powder Brush
The rounded brush shape creates a smooth and blended look with any powder.

e.l.f. Mineral All-Over Eyeshadow Brush
The large flat brush head creates even and smooth colour application on the eyelid.

e.l.f. Mineral Blending Eye Brush
The flexible bristles blend away imperfections and dust on eyeshadow for a natural looking finish.

e.l.f. Mineral Contour Brush
Great for applying concentrated colour for a dramatic effect.

e.l.f. Mineral Flat Eyeliner Brush
Create a precise thin line along your top and bottom lashline.

e.l.f. Mineral Smudge Brush
Create a smoky look by smudging in colour along the corner of the eye.

e.l.f. Mineral Lash & Brow Comb
The comb separates each eyelash to remove mascara clumps and to create lush lashes. The brush keeps brows tamed and defined for a polished look.

e.l.f. Mineral Lip Brush
Define lip lines and shade colour for a professional and polished look. The pointed tip and tapered edges provide precise colour application for preferred degree of fullness.

There are also 2 gift sets on sale, although I’m not really sure why they duplicate 2 brushes in both sets as surely people may be more likely to buy both sets if there were no duplicates?! In fact they seem to have picked the worst types of brushes to use in both, as I would probably still be inclined to buy both sets if the duplicate brushes were eye brushes of some form as I use a lot of different colours/types of eye products so would have more uses for more than one of the same brush, but I generally use the same concealer and complexion brushes as my base products don’t vary quite so much.
