    Comments about Real Techniques Retractable Lip Brush:

    Love that this is retractable...Lip brushes can get messy when you just throw them in your makeup bag but since this is retractable it keeps my makeup bag and purse spotless (well spotless from makeup at least)

        Comments about Real Techniques Retractable Lip Brush:

        Retractable and a cover is a good feature. The only thing is that it should have been more pointed for crisp lining. It is multi purpose, use it for lips, to apply eye shadow on the lower lid, apply powder on the lower side of the nostril basically hard to reach areas. Over all i like it and would recommend it.

          I bought this retractable lip brush because I wanted to make sure that I didn't have a mess in my purse and it does the job, when you remove the plastic cover the brush retracts out and when you place the plastic cover the brush hides. For the price (a little over $6.00) is was a great find.

                  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.

                      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!

                      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.
