      Comments about Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush:

      Great for travel and the brush mechanism is great to keep the brush clean and intact. I wish it were a little firmer to use bare minerals powder foundation. Whisks it on rather than works it in, but I like a bit heavier coverage. You are able to keep the brush lower in the case and that does make it somewhat firmer. Great for travel and especially if you use a lighter coverage.

        Rimmel Stay Matte Powder is a good one to fix make up during the day. This brush works well with the powder. I don't want brushes roll around the pouch. This has a cap to secure the bristles.

          I use this everyday with my Tarte amazon clay powder foundation after I apply concealer with my concealer brush (same brand). It allows me to apply it evenly all over my face. Favorite brush brand, so far!

            I loved this so much I went back and bought another one to use for blush. The could be one of the best brushes I have ever owned. So glad the Ulta staff person recommended it.

              Comments about Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush:

              I really love this brush! Especially for the low price, I think it's a great deal. I use it along with Too Faced Milk Chocolate Solei Bronzer. It picks up product pretty well.

              I also really like the case, even though it isn't very attractive. There's a part that slides up in order for you to store it and it's really useful because you can slide it part of the way up for a very clean line or keep it down for a more blended look. The packaging is also great for travel. I've been in Peru for a month and while one of my other brushes got a little damaged from being loose in my makeup bag this one stayed perfect!

              I would definitely reccommend, especially for the price.

              Comments about Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush:

              Great for applying make up. Distribution make up is even and is great for corners with slanted end. Soft! Holds on to are up well.

              Cons: to large to carry around or as travel brush. Large tubular end makes that difficult. Wish end was a bit smaller.

                Comments about Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush:

                I really like this brush. I originally bought it to use as a travel kabuki to apply foundation on vaca or weekend getaways. However, i wanted to see what the application was like, so I tried it with my BB tinted cream, and really like how it blends on my face. My BB cream is pretty light and works well with these bristles. Not sure if I would use for the original purpose because the bristles may not be "stiff" enough to use with my full coverage foundation.

                  I use my kabuki everyday to apply a translucent powder and when I go out to blend everything together. Its retractable so it's great for travel!

                      A:

                      From Real Techniques:

                      "Our brushes are all made of the same synthetic hair material. However, some of the hairs are produced slightly differently to create the best end result for the brush/product types. So, both the Kabuki and Powder have wavy hair and a slightly smaller bristle diameter in comparison to some of our other brushes like the foundation brush."
