Most Helpful Positive Review Perfect Compact Solution !
I hate the inconvenience of packing makeup brushes for touch ups throughout the day or on the go makeup.... and having to bringing some kind of other bag or case with makeup with me to accomplish this.... This is great and compact!!!! I brush my shades into the brush, retract it, put the cover on and drop it in my purse and go!! No mess and it keeps my brush and purse clean from cross contamination from purse or makeup bag crud.... not to mention all my makeup getting sluffed off during the process... This is a Perfect compact solution ! I Love Love Love This product !
Most Helpful Critical Review Good for bronzer, blush, not powder
This product is nice and cheap (I bought it during a sale) and was originally bought to use with my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural so I had a back up brush for travel. I found that the brush was TOO dense and thick to apply the powder, but it works great for blush and bronzer!
Again, this was bought for travel only so I'm not too upset that it didn't work for the powder. I was reading other reviews online that said the brush 'loosens up' (not sure what that means, because it is a super dense brush) and works well after that. I guess time will tell, but it does work really well with blush and bronzers so I'm glad I bought it.

Love this brush. I carry one in my purse and have one on my vanity. P.E.R.F.E.C.T. for blending. I use it after I have appied all my makup just to smooth everything out. 💓
A very soft compact brush - doesn't really work for my needs
Waterlover from Florida
This brush is small and compact. The brush doesn't pick up product for me.
Love it the brush feels great,it's compact and light weight.

I use this with loose power or bronzer for touch up throughout the day.
VERY STIFF BRUSH BRISTLES
Au Natural from California
So surprised people recommend this!
The brush bristles are so tightly packed in, there is no give when you apply blush.
You have to rub it so hard against your face, that if you've used any concealer or powder below, it will rub away.
I hope I can return it after use. I will say that the retractable aspect works super well. If only they could improve the brush bristles.
Not what I expected

I was looking for a compact kabuki brush that I can take anywhere. I have the bare minerals one which I love but I wanted something a little more affordable. It was very disappointing that the bristles come off so easily and you loose a lot of product with this brush. Would not recommend to anyone to purchase to use with powder foundation.
I love it.
Bo from Ione
I love the compact size, and it easily fits in my hand bag. The bristles are soft and thick for good coverage.
I simply love my brush, thanks Ulta

Good coverage. Nice feel.
The absolute best brush for blending
Kat from NE Florida
I use this after applying cover up and my powder foundation to ensure even coverage and to blend any lines. It just seems to bring everything together and soften the look.
The perfect brush
Samvb from Tampa
I've been buying this brush for so long now. It's so perfect. I've tried other retractable brushes from other stores and found to like this one the best. Great application for everyday use.
Best Kabuki brush!
prettyinink from Washington DC
I made the mistake of trying out a cheap brush thinking it would do the same thing, but Elf came no where near Ulta's retractable kabuki brush! It's soft, yet firm, and applies my translucent powder perfectly. Never again will I stray from this brush! My only worry is that some stores have stopped carrying it!!!
Go-To Make Up Brush

This Kabuki brush bristles are soft and my powder foundation goes on smoothly when I use it.

Very handy! Works far better than the sponges included in compact powders for touch ups.
Love using this as a blush brush.

Soft and easy to use.
Great compact brush
Amy from Philadelphia
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

I use it as a blush brush....Also my other one I use for finishing powder
Not for me
Bradie from Missouri
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.

Not as good as the bare minerals brush but its ok
Love this kabuki brush
DDDonna from Dallas
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.
Love this brush. Fabulous coverage
