Review/Photos: ELF 11 Piece Studio Brush Collection

This brush collection is hands down the best brushes in my makeup kit. I own a mix of high end and low end brushes and this set beats them all. It's great quality and it's darn affordable. I even included it in my 2010 LOVES because it's that good. I can't remember a day that I didn't use a brush from this collection.

By the way, this review is just about the 11 Piece collection as whole. Review of individual brushes will be posted soon.


The set includes every brush ELF Studio line offers. It has a variety of  face and eye brushes and each comes with a brush guard which is friggggin' awesome! Brush guards helps keep brushes in it's original shape so getting them was a great bonus. Also, the brushes comes in a zippered black case made from a soft synthetic fabric. It has so much room for the brushes.

All the brushes from the Studio line are made from synthetic Taklon bristles and they are suuuper duuuper soft! I prefer taklon from natural bristles because they can be used with wet or dry products, they are easier to clean and animal cruelty is not an issue. The handles are very sleek and well made. I've had them for a year and they are still in great condition. 

The set retails for $30. All of the brushes in this set are sold separately for only $3 each. I don't know about you but that price is pretty difficult to beat. Also, you can always get the set for an even cheaper price since ELF always offers coupon codes/discounts pretty much all the time ^_^. I got my set for only $12 bucks during a 60% off Anniversary sale last year. Click HERE to see what else I got.
