    Comments about EcoTools Recycled Aluminum Retractable Kabuki Brush:

    I just love this brush! I had the exact same brush for maybe 4 years until the quality of the way the brush applied my makeup was just not the same so I decided to buy a new one although I have so many other foundation brushes and I'm glad I did because it feels like heaven on my face!:) will buy again when this one needs to be replaced.

      Comments about EcoTools Recycled Aluminum Retractable Kabuki Brush:

      This retractable kabuki is full size, no tiny little brush heads to try to work with, and it's dense. It's easy to toss it in a purse and it won't collect purse debris.

        Comments about EcoTools Recycled Aluminum Retractable Kabuki Brush:

        This is a great on the go brush that I keep in my purse. It's very soft and great for my pressed powder touch ups. I'm sure you could use it to apply foundation too as it's very dense. I purchased the similar real techniques brush a while ago but after a week the cap broke! I like the ecotools cap because it's aluminum and won't break as easily. This is my second one. The first one I had for years!! Great brush! I recommend this brush to friends and family all the time.

                    This brush is very soft and works well for foundation powder. I love that it is retractable to save room in my makeup bag since I travel a lot. Also keeps it clean. The only thing is it's a little awkward getting the lid back on.

                          Hi Ziggy,

                          This kabuki brush would be an amazing brush for powder foundation because of how lightly packed and fluffy the bristles are - they would give you that light, but flawless coverage.

                          For a cream to powder foundation, I would tend to use a brush whose head is more dense and compact. One brush I love within EcoTools for liquid foundation application is the Buffing Brush, shown here: http://www.ulta.com/buffing-brush?productId=xlsImpprod4260025

                          Thanks!

                          Hi Abbey,

                          I do love me a kabuki brush for a lot of different things, and it would be an amazing brush for a bronzer because of how lightly packed and fluffy the bristles are - they would give you that natural glow you're looking for.

                          However, I probably wouldn't recommend it for contouring - you need something with a bit more precision and something that has a bit more of an angular cut. My best recommendation is a brush from our sister brand, Real Techniques. We make a Sculpting Brush in that line that is absolutely amazing for contouring - you can find it here: http://www.ulta.com/sculpting-brush?productId=xlsImpprod11861065

                          That has the angles, the smaller cut bristles and the dense packing that is perfect for creating a fierce contour!

                          Thanks.
