        I use this every day and will be taking it as i travel. My other bigger brushes take up too much space and are too bulky. Love the design of this brush.

            I use this brush to apply blush & it works
            perfectly!

            The best feature is that it's retractable so
            it protects my face from dust that usually sticks
            on brushes!

            Comments about Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush:

            I bought this for contouring really. I have a small face and usually the contouring brushes that come are not good for my face. I bought this on the advice of a Ulta salesperson. I would not have gone for this myself. I like the feel of the brush but it did not really do what I wanted it to do. That is okay because it was inexpensive. I can apply blush with it really well. I am still hunting for an appropriate contour brush. I have all the real technique brushes so it is just an addition to the collection.

              Comments about Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush:

              Some do not like this brush as it is not very compact for traveling. This is not a problem for me. I like the retractable brush and do not have to worry about damage to the bristles or loose powder in my Caboodle. The bristles are soooo soft. I also have the Real Techniques stippling brush (foundation) and LOVE it! Real Techniques knows what they are doing. Unless you must have a shorter retractable brush for space, this brush will work for you.

                    We recommend cleaning with a mild hair shampoo or brush shampoo once weekly. You can also spray in between uses using a brush cleaning spray (recommended for acne-prone skin).

                  Is the bristle part of this brush the same size as the bristle part of the Real Techniques Powder Brush?

                    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."
