No mess with Mineral Powder foundation

      Comments about ULTA Retractable Kabuki Brush:

      This brush works perfectly with bare minerals foundation. It is also soft on my skin. I use the bare minerals technique to swirl the powder in the lid and tap, and get the perfect amount of product on my face. I've heard of other people saying that mineral foundation powder gets all over the bathroom, but with this brush there is no mess. I bought this brush because I thought the Bare Minerals foundation brush was too pricey and am very satisfied.

          Easy to use. Much better than brush that comes with Bare Minerals since the hairs don't come off. I still get full coverage as well. Very soft.

            Love this thing. I haven't had a kabuki brush in awhile. I never knew the use for it. But I love it. It doesn't pick up too much powder and cake your face

                      Better than expected, the brush itself is soft and applying loose finishing powder is so easy for an even application. I would have given it a 5 but the case is wobbly but nothing I can't handle.

                                Can you this brush with liquid foundation? I bought IT CC+ color correcting full coverage cream + anti aging hydrating serum.
                                I am new to foundation. I bought a kabuki brush and don't know if that's good for foundation or a powder.

                                  A:

                                  We recommend cleaning at least weekly (if used daily), or more frequently if you have acne-prone skin. You can clean the Retractable Kabuki Brush with brush shampoo or gentle hair shampoo such as baby shampoo. We suggest using our Professional Brush & Sponge Cleaner (Item #: 2240849). Dampen the bristles, massage with shampoo, then rinse under cool water until the water runs clear. Lay flat to dry, and allow to fully dry before next use. :-)
