I have found my new holy grail brush. I never thought I would find one I like as much as the Real Techniques Setting Brush but here I am with one I love equally. The ELF Small Stipple Brush has not left my make up bag since I got it a few weeks ago. I found it at TJ Maxx for $2.49 and honestly who can say no to that price?! It is an amazing multi purpose brush. I feel like ELF brushes are always either hits or misses. They are either really soft and work amazing or shed like crazy. The Small Stipple Brush is the best brush I have ever tried from ELF. It is super soft and does not shed at all. It is also very vertical because of its size. I have used it for contouring, highlighting, brush and for foundation. It is very dense so it is great for buffering products in. I think my favorite use for it is contouring. It fits perfectly into the hallows of my cheeks and on my temples. I highly recommend you guys check this brush out! It is definitely as good as some expensive high end ones but like an eighth the price.
