    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

    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

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

    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. :>

    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)
