              I use high quality brushes normally but I bought this one because I wanted to be able to throw one in my purse for touch ups throughout the day and it is so much better than I expected!! It was so cheap but pretty good quality and the retractable part keeps it brand new.

                Amazing bush with a terrible cap

                By miellen

                from Undisclosed

                Comments about Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush:

                I absolutely love Real Techniques brushes and this one is no exception. It's very soft but firm enough for my bronzing/contouring. The only downfall is that the cap is not very high quality; mine cracked in a few months and eventually broke on me, and I never dropped my brush. It makes it very hard to close so it's now just a non-retractable brush.

                  I have had a lot of Kabuki brushes and this one is the best one. It does not shed. The bristles are soft and don't scratch like some of the more expensive brushes I have had. I will be changing all my brushes to this brand.

                      I was looking for a retractable brush that wasn't going to cost me too much but still had good quality brush! This retractable Kabuki Brush is perfect. No shedding and very soft. I would recommend this product and others from Real Techniques. Also, they have greta videos for each brush/application. I use it for powder and blush. Perfect for travel as well.

                          Yes, for perfect cheekbones, use with bronzer or highlighter to define and contour the hollows of the cheeks.

                          Yes, this brush is ideal to use to apply pressed and loose powder formulas. Its dense, firm bristles provide buildable coverage from sheer to full.

                          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).

                          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."
