        I did not like this lip brush, it did not apply product evenly and it also did not apply it nicely around edges of lips.. I love all my other real techniques brushes, but NOT this one.

            Comments about Real Techniques Retractable Lip Brush:

            I like the idea of a travel friendly lip brush, but the dual fiber bristles cause a streaky application and it is imposible to outle the thips with it.

            Frustrating brush

            Verified Reviewer

            Comments about Real Techniques Retractable Lip Brush:

            The material the holder is made of and the brush are great, love the color and the brush is very precise. But absolutely would NEVER buy this bc of the design. I bought two on my first try unfortunately.

            The cap falls off like it doesn't even belong ALL THE TIME! I thought this was perfect because I could throw it in my purse, but HA! The brush is not retractable, there's just a metal piece that slips up over it but does not stay in place. When the cap goes on it pushes it back down and then the cap just falls off defeating the whole purpose of both the retractable piece and cap! There is no spring part to this to make it stay on like with a different brush I had to buy. No clicking closed tab, screwing closed part to make the cap stay on. It stained my wallet on the first toss in the bag. And the cap does not stay on the other end when you open it either.

            It is a basic lip brush.

                    A:

                    Hi Milena,

                    Thanks for your question. One of the best things about the Real Techniques brushes is that they are so multi-functional, so the answer to your question is Yes, you can use this for a concealer brush! This would work well for smaller areas that you're looking to mask or conceal (since the brush head is so small).

                    Two other options for you, too, are: the actual Real Techniques concealer brush (found here - http://www.ulta.com/concealer-brush?productId=xlsImpprod11861067), or one that I love is our Real Techniques Setting Brush (http://www.ulta.com/setting-brush?productId=xlsImpprod4260019&sku=2244504&_requestid=6302700). The Setting Brush does have a larger head on it, but it's perfect for applying product directly to the area, then feathering it out to blend.

                    Hope those suggestions help!

                    Thanks! :)

                    Hi pigletbunny (I love your name, btw):

                    The bristles on this brush are made from a synthetic fiber called taklon. They are cruelty-free and we feel they provide a better application than natural hair brushes.

                    Thanks!

                  Does this work well to make a precise and thin line to line the lips?

                    A:

                    Hi Caseycat,

                    Thanks for your question! The bristles on this brush are very firm and will allow you to get a nice line & definition on your lips; however, if your lips are thin (like mine are), I find that a sharp lip pencil will give me slightly better and more precise results.

                    However, I love this brush for filling in and re-apply throughout the day. And, the fact that it's retractable means I can put product on the brush before I go, then just pull it out of my bag & the product's already on there. Awesome!

                    Thanks!

                    A:

                    We recommend spritzing with brush cleaner spray in between uses. Each week, shampoo your brush using a brush shampoo or mild hair shampoo. Lather and rinse with cool water until the water runs clear. Lay flat to dry.
