      Comments about ULTA Retractable Kabuki Brush:

      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...

                  Comments about ULTA Retractable Kabuki Brush:

                  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.

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

                              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. :-)
