Every now and again I come across something that, either by it’s nature or by what it sparks in me, is a game changer.  That is how I view the e.l.f. Studio Flawless Concealer Brush.  I’ve had it for a few months now, and it has completely changed the way I apply my concealer and how it looks on my skin.  You need this brush.

Here is what e.l.f. has to say about their Studio Flawless Concealer Brush: “Create an airbrush effect with the Flawless Concealer Brush using any liquid or powder concealer. The unique rounded shape allows you to contour and cover areas easily. Create buildable coverage from light to heavy for a customizable look that is smooth and flawless.”

The e.l.f. Studio Flawless Concealer Brush has a bushy rounded shape that makes it look almost like a large eyeshadow crease brush.  It’s denser and thicker than a typical crease brush, though.  The shape isn’t really unique or innovative, since there are other brands with similar brushes, but the shape is unique to me.  (And of course, as an e.l.f. product, it’s much, much cheaper.)  I have only ever used flat paddle-shaped concealer brushes.  In fact, I wasn’t entirely sure how to use the Studio Flawless Concealer Brush when I first saw it.  But I wanted to give it a try, and I am so glad that I did.

The reason that I’m raving over this brush so much, is that the bushy rounded shape creates smooth, flawless transition between my concealer and my skin.  Even when I use a thick full-coverage concealer like Hard Candy Glamoflauge, the brush works its magic.  The Studio Flawless Concealer Brush buffs away extra product leaving just enough to cover but not cake up.  It is especially useful for under the eyes to buff out any product that wants to settle into fine lines.

Now that I have the Studio Flawless Concealer Brush, I apply my concealer in a whole new way.  First on the face, I use my normal paddle-shaped concealer brush to apply the product and blend out a bit.  Then I grab the Studio Flawless Concealer Brush to blend and buff the edges so that the transition from concealer to the rest of my makeup is imperceptible.  I usually apply under eye concealer with my fingers, so I go ahead and do that as normal.  I go back to my under eye area a few minutes later, after the product has had time to settle, and use the Studio Flawless Concealer Brush to buff away any excess and smooth everything out.  It’s amazing that a simple little brush can make such a big difference, but it really does.

The e.l.f. Studio Flawless Concealer Brush is available at for $3.00.  I have noticed that Target seems to be carrying more e.l.f. items, so you may be able to find it at Target soon, but selection will vary greatly by store.  E.l.f. Studio brushes are very good quality for their price point and hold up pretty well.  I own most of the Studio brush line and haven’t had any complaints.  For $3.00, the Studio Flawless Concealer Brush is definitely worth a try.

I love art, and use my creativity in many different ways through painting, crafts, and makeup. I love to cook and try new things, and I especially love to eat. My favorite "date" is to go wine tasting, and do so with my husband once or twice a year. I love musical theater and think the world would be much better off if we all just watched more musicals. I am 100% a cat person and, although I think dogs can be really cute and sweet, they make me sneeze so cats will always rule. I love faeries and magic, mythology, theology, philosophy, and psychology. I regularly do logic puzzles and sometimes crosswords. I adore Bette Midler, Betty White, and Carol Burnett. I am not ashamed to admit that I watch Glee. I would like to start making some of my own clothes because I can't stop myself from buying fabric. I'm sure that there is much more, but I'm suddenly distracted by something shiny.

  1. I got this a while back during a 50% off the Studio line sale, but hadn’t really been able to figure out how to use it effectively. Thanks so much for the tips! Can’t wait to try it tomorrow!

  2. So happy you bought this brush and have had the chance to play with it! I suspected you would have as much success as I have had using it to blend out Glamoflage under the eyes. A couple of days ago, I was in a rush to apply my makeup, and opted just to use a nude eyeshadow all over my lid. I picked up this brush and thought…”H-m-m-m. I’ll bet this will work for eyeshadow, too!” and used it to quickly cover my lids from lashline to brow with the powder shadow. It was perfect!
