Now Available: NEW e.l.f. Studio Ultimate Kabuki Brush and New Essential Lip Balm Tint Shades

In case you don't follow e.l.f. on social media, I want to be sure you know about some new things now available for purchase on their website. Check it out:

NEW e.l.f. Studio Ultimate Kabuki Brush
(retail: $10 on the e.l.f. website)

From the e.l.f. website:
A true beauty multi-tasker, this brush works for blending, highlighting, contouring, and stippling.The densely compacted bristles distribute powder evenly to create a smooth and soft-focused finish. Flat edges fit the contours of your face while curved corners allow for targeted, precise application. The soft bristles of this Taklon brush are vegan-friendly and easy to clean.

Some of you have wondered if this might be similar to the NARS Ita ($55), Becca One Perfecting Brush ($49) or the EcoTools Face & Body Sculpting Brush ($11.99). To me it seems the most similar to the EcoTools brush, but of course I have no way of knowing for sure until I get it in my hot little hands (oh how I hope this will be at Target stores soon!).

Keep reading for a look at the new Lip Balm Tint shades...

NEW e.l.f. Essential Lip Balm Tint shades: Pink Princess and Rosy Rocker
(retail: $2 each on the e.l.f. website)

Just like with the new Ultimate Kabuki Brush, these new shades in the Lip Balm Tint range are now available for purchase on the e.l.f. site HERE. You know, I've heard so many great things about these, but I haven't tried one yet. Do you own any? What do you think of them?

Thanks so much to everyone who took the time share these new goodies with me on social media--I really appreciate it!


  1. Hmm!! I didn't know eco tools had one in this vein.

    Of course, knowing me, I'll try it and this Elf one, and still end up buying the Becca... Lol

  2. I picked up a few of the balm tints after seeing EmilyNoel's video about them, and I LOVE them! I find them to be comfortable on the lips, moisturizing, and surprisingly well pigmented.

  3. Lol! Well I'd love to know what you think of all three! ;)

  4. I own the Becca brush and ecotools brush. I prefer the Becca as it can handle liquid cremes and powders. Ecotool is just for powders. I feel the ecotools one is softer.

  5. At first glance it looked a lot like a smaller version of the Becca brush. I had completely forgotten about the EcoTools brush. I will have to check this one out because I have been curious about these types of brushes.

  6. At first it looked too big to me but then I realized it's not even the length of a finger so it could be a good dupe for the brushes you mentioned but $10 for an elf brush?! Their studio brushes are $3! Seems a bit pricey but if it really is a dupe for the infamous NARS ita, I'll take it!

  7. Oooooh my goodness ... that certainly looks like the Becca brush, which I have. I love the Becca one, it's amazing for contouring and highlighting. But it's pretty expensive for just that, which is all I use it for. I am definitely going to try the ELF brush and see if it is a dupe or not!!

  8. Whoa, really want to try that itahake kabuki :)

  9. I have Wlfs lip Balm tint in Geapefruit. I oickes it up at Walgreens brides Christmas. Like the day before. They had them in little bags with a string to hang on the tree I think or stocking stuffers. I really like it. Goes in smooth and kinds a sweet flavor to it. I have had sinus trouble since so my smeller is kinda off. But it very pretty and light on the lips. Definately would repurchase for a dollar which is what I purchased it for. They only had a cple of them. I wish I had gotten the other too. But if u get them u will enjoy it. U won't be sorry. I find that out about Amit if Elfs products. Can't wait to get my hands on that new brush. So awesome they came out with that. Kudos for Elf for keeping up with everyone. Love Elf and plan to have a lot more if twir products. My Walmart careies a huge display. Yeah😍😍😍😍😍😍

  10. I saw the Sonia Kashuk one that is sorta kinda similar. :)
