elf’s Flat Eyeliner Brush

Remember, folks: marketing and labeling is a suggestion, not a restriction. This brush from elf is a great case in point.

I picked this up when I was looking for a way to apply my deeper, vampier lip colors along the edges of my lips…when I could not find a lip liner in the matching color. This seemed like the perfect brush: the head was wide and cleanly shaped, the top was flat, and the bristles were dense enough that I could pick up the color and press it into place like a stamp. (Why not use a regular lip brush to apply the “liner” portion of my lip color, you may ask? Because I wanted something that could press or stipple color into place, and because I wanted a longer straight line.) I only started using this brush in January 2020, but it’s worked well for me thus far.
