Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thin Eyeliner Brush I love all of Elfs $3 and up line!!! I have Every one of their Studio brushes and even ordered 2nds of the ones I use more often.I hate to hear someone complain about a $3 item but I have to say, I ordered 2 of these brushes from iherb as Elf site was out of stock. I ordered 2, knowing the quality of each and everyone of Elfs Studio brushes, but my retractable lip brushes are both terrible!Very, Very few bristles on each brush!!!!!! More like their $1 line wud b.Although, I love that they are retractable, they are a big let down for me.I know the reviews are at like a 4 or above, so Idk, maybe I just got a bad batch.I took a pic of the bristles, comparing them against the Flat eyeliner and Small Angled Brushes, just so you can see the comparison. To me, they look like thin liquid eyeliner brushes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not that wonderful Maybe I'm just using this brush incorrectly, but it doesn't seem to hold much lipstick. The bristles are nice and soft, but it takes such a long time to apply a little color that I just used lipstick directly without bothering with the brush. E.l.f.'s Studio brushes are really nice in general (I have several), but this one didn't do a whole lot for me.I'd recommend using this after applying lipstick to even out rough or smudged edges. But for $3, I don't feel like it's a big loss even though I don't use it. Can't know until you try it for yourself, and I like e.l.f. too much overall to let my opinion of their entire product line be tainted by a brush I find impractical.I did think the retractable design was nifty, but I didn't have much success with the brush as far as lipstick application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I made this purchase I bought TWO of these, that's right. I had so much faith in elf products that I automatically bought one for both my mother and myself. She is pleased by it, I like mine as well. The bristles have a great firmness but aren't too firm, still soft enough to feel good applying any of your lip products. For $3 you can't beat it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell Apart I just got this with the Sizzling Summer beauty package, and was most excited for this product. I'm obsessed with lip products and have been trying to perfect my application, so this brush would've really helped me with that. However, I literally only got one use out of it. The next time I opened it, the list got stuck and when I finally got it off, the entire brush literally fell apart in my hand and I can't use it. Very disappointed with the quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk! I was excited to try this lip brush, but it completely fell apart within five minutes of me opening it. Maybe I just got a bad one, but I'm really disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good! I threw the brush packet and instruction guide without reading so I actually thought my brush was broke when I couldn't get the brush to come out! Thank god I figured it out! Lol. You have to twist and turn it down instead of just trying to pull it down. The brush is smaller than I expected but it does a good job with picking up the product and applies it smoothly and evenly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the design I needed a lip brush for a travel makeup kit and this one is perfect. I love the design, the width of the brush is just right for me (some may think it could be wider), and the bristles have the right combination of stiffness and softness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Portable and great quality The size of the brush is a little too small for filling in my lips, but overall the quality of the brush is amazing. It's really compact and handy for traveling. I use it for precise lining of my lips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh so handy! Great way to use the last of that favorite lipstick or gloss... Retractable brush stays neat in my madhouse of a purse, I never worry if I have some color left on the brush before I throw it back in. Very handy on-the-go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but small I have another retractable lip brush so I am familiar with the design/how it opens and closes. But the elf brush is skimpy with its bristles. It's fine, just thin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this because of a good review I do not regret this purchase and I recommend everyone have one! this is amazing! All my travel make up brushes (especially when I rush) are full of powders, eye shadows, creams, and liners, they always contaminate my lip brush that drives me crazy until I get tired of cleaning them and throw em away and I forever need these. This casing is so convenient! Easy to clean and keep clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from NOW I get it I hated it when I first used it because I couldn't stop it from snapping back into the handle. I eventually twisted the top part to secure it and it worked like a charm. Very easy to use once you figure it out and very convenient for balms, lipsticks, and tubes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I bought the Sephora brand lip brush and then I saw this one and had to try it. It's comparable to the more $$ one and the bristles are soft and a great size. Truly impressed with this brush. I definitely recommend this brush for everyone to buy. I carry it in my purse and use it all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great & fits anywhere. you can take it with you on the go, it rally fits anywhere because of it's size. I was really surprize when i purchase it because i was expecting it to be a bit longer to handle. but the size it perfect to fit on your hands, at first i was like what!! i had to laugh it looked like a mini eyeliner but when you take the top off and place the top at the back on the brush then the applicator brush comes out. super cute and the brush is soft, but picks up the perfect amount of lipstick, condition lips balms whatever etc..what you like it picks it up great. I take it with me to retouch during my work days or a normal day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i love it I really love this brush. It's very soft and easy to use. I love the way it's designed. It's also great that the bristles are covered so you can throw it in your purse without worrying about germs and bacteria getting onto it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect product I own three of these brushes- one lives in my makeup bag, one in my travel bag and a backup just in case. It's inexpensive, does it's job, and does it well. To me, that makes it a perfect product. I've had no issues with shedding yet and have been using it regularly for about four or five months now. This brush is also great if you're a fan of the studio line's conditioning balms, which I am also in love with. It's not always the best idea to dip your finger in a pot of lip balm and the brush is the solution when you need to be sanitary. Get the brush it won't disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for on the go or at home I love this brush. It's the perfect lip brush for on the go because of the size & the bristles are SO soft. I kind of want to order another one to keep at my make up station at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Brush! This brush is absolutely fantastic! The bristles are very soft and provide an even product application. It's great for applying the Conditioning Lip Balms. The cap and its slim and small size makes it great for on the go. And I love the black, very chic looking packaging.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Lip Brush Great little brush. I was way confused on how to use it when I first got it and had to read the box. You take the cap and put it on the bottom of the tube and it will push up the lip brush. I've never seen a lip brush like this. It's very slim and sleek looking. The ONLY gripe about it is the brush itself is REALLY tiny. I have pretty thin lips and even I think it's way too small. If it were bigger, this would be perfect! But, they are definitely on the right track. I think they don't even need it to push up/retract, just make a screw cap so it would be securely on and less likely to pop off in your purse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yay! It's not gross! I personally am the kind of person who can't leave the house without being thoroughly coated in dog hair. It's everywhere. I have to take good care to avoid it getting in my makeup products. Lip brushes get sticky and even if you wipe them off, they tend to accumulate dust and dog hair. God forbid you drop them. I'm also rather careful about germs when I'm out and about. ie: when I have a pot of lip balm/gloss, I don't like to stick my fingers in it if I haven't *just* washed them. This solves a number of problems. It can sit in your purse and remain sanitary, and it does what it's supposed to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OBSESSED! I LOVE IT I love lipstick and glosses and this is one of my newest editions which most likely will use everyday I love the size of the brush perfect for having the most popping lip gloss or most poisonous pout :) might aka will be buying more of these brushes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional looking and sleek I'm happy e.l.f. came out with a lip brush that has a lid. The Essentials Lip Brush comes with the sleeve only and bacteria can get in quicker. I wish that one had a lid also. The brush is a bit dense and soft and makes application of lip products much easier especially using the Studio Conditioning Lip Balms Spf 15. The packaging is cute and sleek and fits perfectly in my makeup bag which isn't very big. When the lid is taken off there's a spring at the bottom of the tube which pushes out the brush once you put the lid on behind it. It might seem a bit flimsy to some but that's because of the sping. Another great idea from e.l.f.!
