        Comments about EcoTools Recycled Aluminum Retractable Kabuki Brush:

        If you would've asked me a few months ago, I would have given this brush AMAZING reviews. However, I recently purchased a new one and the quality is terrible. The lid barely fits, the handle is flimsy. I feel like the brush is going to fall apart. And the bristles themselves are not as soft as the previous brush I had (which was supposed to be the same exact brush). I usually buy all of my brushes from Ecotools due to their price and quality, but will be looking into other brands.

              Unfortunately this product requires extra streps to "retract" the brush. If you don't take these steps hairs of the brush get crushed by the cap. It's a very odd design. I don't recommend.

                  The only con I have is that it is too small. It needs to be a little taller. I love the brush itself.

                      This brush is half the cost of other more expensive brushes but works fine with loose powder foundation. Comes with a cover to protect bristles. Lasts long time.

                      Amazing brush- the only complaint I have is that the aluminum casing fell apart instantly and now I only have the brush insert.

                          Hi Laura,

                          I do love a kabuki brush for a lot of different things, and it would be an amazing brush for loose powder because of how lightly packed and fluffy the bristles are - they would give you that light, but flawless coverage

                          Thanks!

                        Would this brush be able to be used for contouring and bronzing?

                          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.
