Having never used a stippling brush to apply my makeup,I've always been a sponge gal, I decided it was time for a change and get one. Now I love Elf products, not only is the make up pretty good but the price is right. So I purchased the Elf studio small stippling brush mostly because it was just 3 bucks. I was pleasantly surprised at the ease of use with this brush. The brush head small enough to really buff your liquid make up onto your skin, getting into the curves and corners of your face with ease.I absolutely love this brush.My make up went on easily and evenly. And best of all it's only 3 bucks. It won't break the bank.
