Ok, I admit I’m late to the party but….have you discovered E.L.F. makeup brushes yet?? I went to Target yesterday and was on the hunt for some affordable makeup brushes. I am doing my best friend’s makeup for her wedding in two weeks and I want to make sure she looks flawless. I needed to get a foundation brush and I also thought it would be a good idea to pick up some eyeshadow brushes for her eye makeup. I have some great ones from MAC that I used for my wedding but since I use them and wouldn’t have time to clean them properly between her application and mine, it is more sanitary to get some new brushes just for her. Since I’m mainly buying the brushes for a one-time-only affair, I’m not too worried about not getting top of the line brushes that are going to last forever. I just need some quality brushes that will apply makeup beautifully for this occasion.
I went ahead and picked up a few from the Sonia Kashuk line, since they are pretty great in their own right. And then I decided to wander through the makeup aisles, as I’m known to do. I can’t help myself – you never know what fun stuff you’ll find! And I’m extra glad I did because that is how I stumbled upon E.L.F. I didn’t realize Target carried this line and I thought I heard awhile back that they were going out of business. So I was very pleasantly surprised to see their products. And then I saw how much they cost…..ONE DOLLAR. Yep. A dollar a brush. And not for shabby, stiff, poor bristles. A dollar for soft, pliable, completely workable brushes. I am thrilled with the find and stocked up on what I needed. All for less than the cost of one brush from Sonia Kashuk’s line. Not to knock the SK brushes – those will certainly last longer and are great quality. But when you need a brush for a day, you can’t beat this. And if you are new to brushes and you want
to experiment with applying your makeup
with them, this is
the perfect way to f ind what works for you – before
investing bigger bucks in higher end products.
