August 9, 2012 Review: Rite Aid Renewal Powder Brush & Elf Clarifying Pressed Powder
This is the softest and gentlest powder brush on earth. At least, of the ones I’ve tried (which, admittedly, aren’t too many).
I don’t remember exactly how much I paid for it, but one blogger said she paid $10.99. Which I think is a pretty decent price for such a fluffy brush, which I will probably use for at least another few years because I’m cheap like that.
My brush appears to be tan on the top, because it had powder on it when I was photographing it. I don’t wash my brushes as often as I probably should… But straight out of the package, the top of the brush is just white.
I’ve been using this brush with my face powder, which is e.l.f. Clarifying Pressed Powder (below).
It’s not my favorite powder (I had Maybelline Dream Matte Powder before, which I loved but accidentally left somewhere at my college orientation), but it was only $1 at Target, and I feel like it does an excellent job for that price.
I probably should just buy some more Maybelline powder already, so I won’t keep moaning about it to myself, but e.l.f. has been doing the job for now.
One thing I dislike about the e.l.f. powder is the packaging–the compact is so small and thin that I have a hard time actually holding onto it when I’m dusting powder onto my brush.
The powder itself works well, although I feel like it wears off faster than my Maybelline powder. That could just be my imagination, though.
I do recommend this powder if you are looking for something on the cheaper end, but that still functions the way it should. And the brush I’d recommend to anyone, regardless of how much money they like to spend, because it is just so super soft and cozy.
Feel free to comment if you’ve ever used either of these products, or want to, and tell me what you think!
