    which one is the softest? the bamboo elf one or the elf ‘black cat’ thing?
    omg, how cool you talked about the vital radiance one. i got one too, (not the eyeliner one, it’s a angled eyeshadow one). It’s softer than mac, so so so so soft (holding it in my hand as I type) and i should have bought 10 of them. it’s my favourite brush to apply my highlight colour and blend the highlight and the top of the crease colour. <3 major love this one xx This one only gets mainly dipped into mac vanilla, or mac blanc type x

  2. Love this video- I have a few of these. The kitten paw brush is such a good name for the Elf blush brush :) xx

  3. Tass says:

    I have a vital radiance brush from pound land too! I can’t live without my ELF powder brush. I also really like their angled contour brush for applying eyeshadow in a hurry xx

    You look absolutely beautiful.

    Very VERY useful video, as just this morning I was googling ‘good cheap brushes UK’ – once again you have helped me greatly.

    Hope you’ve had a great weekend! xx

    Excellent video, I love the elf powder brush, my college tutor wants me to get her one! (she is a registered MAC artist :p) Think in my next order I’m gonna get those 2 blusher brushes.

    You remind me of Dawn Porter – she is so cute :)

    Useful video! Question- what do you use to clean your brushes, and how often do you do it?

  8. Leah says:

    I’ve just bought the brow brush. Thanks for the tip!

  9. Chelsea says:

    If the elf stippler is eating too much foundation, use it to put your moisturiser on first so it soaks up that instead of the foundation. :>

  10. Andrea says:

    None of my white MAC brushes are stained and I’ve had some of them for years! If you clean them properly they stay looking like new.

  11. Loved this & your nails are lush! Did you DIY?

    I love the ELF Powder, blush & detail brushes too. Been meaning to try Crown and may give the angled eyeliner a go as I’m crap at that.

    Recently discovered Bdellium Tools which I’m really enjoying too (£6-14)
