      Comments about ULTA Retractable Kabuki Brush:

      Great affordably little brush. I use it with bare minerals foundation. It's really soft and easily portable. Depending on how much u twist it up changes the density of the brush head for more/less coverage

          Comments about ULTA Retractable Kabuki Brush:

          Not a fan, a store employee reassured me that it would not cause my foundation to streak like traditional foundation brushes, and it does. Also, side note, it was supposed to be buy one get one 50% off. So I purchased one for my mom as well and didn't receive the 50% off. I should have checked my receipt before leaving the store.

            I use this brush with Bare Minerals loose powder. It would work fine on pressed powder. The handle portion is small but I like the fact that it is. I do not like long brushes. Makes it easy to store and for travel. Brush very soft and dense.

                    • Q:

                      Is this a good choice for use with the It Celebration Foundation Powder? I've been using my Ulta angled foundation brush & feel like it's wasting the product. Please suggest best Ulta brush for powder foundation. Thank you!

                        Yes, we'd definitely recommend the Retractable Kabuki. It's a great choice for powder foundation, and you'll notice minimal product waste. Enjoy!

                    • Q:

                      Can you this brush with liquid foundation? I bought IT CC+ color correcting full coverage cream + anti aging hydrating serum.
                      I am new to foundation. I bought a kabuki brush and don't know if that's good for foundation or a powder.

                        A:

                        We recommend cleaning at least weekly (if used daily), or more frequently if you have acne-prone skin. You can clean the Retractable Kabuki Brush with brush shampoo or gentle hair shampoo such as baby shampoo. We suggest using our Professional Brush & Sponge Cleaner (Item #: 2240849). Dampen the bristles, massage with shampoo, then rinse under cool water until the water runs clear. Lay flat to dry, and allow to fully dry before next use. :-)
