    Such an easy to use brush! Great quality, that gives me a gorgeous finish for both bronzer or blush.

    Doesn't have the cheap "synthetic feel" to it.

      Comments about Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush:

      I love how it applies powder evenly. I use it withmy Bare Minerals compact. It fits in a small bad and had a lid with a retractable brish. I didn't expect it to be this good for the price.

            I'm a huge fan of the Real Techniques foundation brush - fantastic! This kabuki brush? Not so much...

            It's bulky and awkward to use - it's going back :-\

                              Here are the length measurements for the Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush:

                              • With the cap on, brush retracted: 4.75" long
                              • Without cap on, brush retracted: 4.5" long
                              • Brush "out", cap off: since the brush has an angled bristle head, the length from the base of the brush to the longest bristle is just under 4.5" long.

                              We hope this helps! :-)

                            Can you use this pressed powder? If you can, how would you recommend using it to apply pressed powder all over your face?

                              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).

                              "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."
