Don't change something if it's not broken!

So I ordered myself another ELF Powder Brush. I've had my current one since it was very first released, so I figured that seen as ELF brushes are cheap as chips I might as well buy myself another one. It's arrived and its nothing at all like my other one! The brush head is smaller, not as dense, and just different! I wanted the exact same one!

Top New. Bottom Old.


Left new. Right old.


Left old. Right New.


Anyone else noticed this?

  1. Oh goodness me. I was looking to buy a new Elf powder brush this weekend. Doesn't look so good now...looks so loose. I love how dense the old one is and it's perfect for foundation. I hope they aren't all going to be like this from now on. :/

  4. i bought this about a month ago and thought it was different, but i'd thrown my old one out so had nothing to compare it to. I loved my first one, but havn't used the new one atall. x

  6. Well thats disappointing. Just about the only thing I like from ELF. In fact I love mine but I won't buy any more :(

  7. You should send them an e-mail including the pictures pointing this out to them. They're probably aware of this change, but they should mention it somewhere on the site. Maybe if they realise customers aren't happy with it they may make a change, or at least offer an apology x

  10. Thanks for all your comments Ladies. At least you all know now to just stick with your old one. The new one is not good at all. So loose and small.

    @Msdrifted - The old one is denser not the new one.

  17. Oh this sucks - I was just thinking about buying another one for myself too :( Why have they done it?!

  18. I bought a new one a couple of months ago too and was shocked to find it significantly less dense than my original one. I assumed I'd just recieved a dud but apparently it's widespread! x

  21. woah!!! that's a huge size difference! i've found all elf brushes vary slightly in size and shape but that comparison is fairly obvious!
