elf’s Studio Fan brush

This is elf’s thinner, softer full fan brush that was pretty much the only kind of fan brush I’d seen in 2010. I will confess, I haven’t yet figured out how to best use it…and I haven’t looked really hard.

I can tell you that this has a long black handle and a black metal ferrule, like all of the Studio brushes. (For you folks who only know elf from, say, 2015 onward…there used to only be two brush lines: the wooden white-handled Essentials that were generally $1 per brush and were slightly lower quality (ferrules weren’t always firmly fixed to the handles, there was a little more fallout expected/allowed) and the black-handled Studio brushes that were generally $3 per brush and had synthetic bristles. The bristles on this fan brush are evenly distributed for the most part, but there are a few small gaps in the fan. I purposely washed the brush and ran the bristles through my fingertips to see if there would be any fallout, and there wasn’t. I think that the brush quality is on-par with the others in the Studio line, and the fact that I haven’t ever learned how one should best use a brush like this…is not the brush’s fault.
