            First time using brush for powder foundation! Seems to use less powder using brush compared to sponge!

              Comments about ULTA Retractable Kabuki Brush:

              This was my first time purchasing a kabuki brush and I do not regret it! It has a soft texture and my best use of it so far is applying my blush. The color shows up better verses using a different brush. I recommend!

                    I haven't used it very much but it's very soft. Would ask that it be a little less expensive.

                      I hate the inconvenience of packing makeup brushes for touch ups throughout the day or on the go makeup.... and having to bringing some kind of other bag or case with makeup with me to accomplish this.... This is great and compact!!!! I brush my shades into the brush, retract it, put the cover on and drop it in my purse and go!! No mess and it keeps my brush and purse clean from cross contamination from purse or makeup bag crud.... not to mention all my makeup getting sluffed off during the process... This is a Perfect compact solution ! I Love Love Love This product !

                      • Q:

                        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. :-)
