I am always afraid of my makeup brushes getting dirty within a day or two of washing. I love that this brush has its own cover. It's great for travel and blends really well.
Immediately replaced my existing blush brush
This brush is fantastic and I put away my previous blush brush as soon as I got it. Compact brushes keep their shape in makeup pouches better and also stay cleaner since they don't grab other powders or dust floating around. Super soft bristles apply blush PERFECTLY. Seriously. It's amazing.
My only issue is that, as with many retractable brushes, washing can be tricky because the bristles retain more water that I then worry about dripping into the tube.
This brush is super soft and is a great bargain. Love how easy it retracts and acts as a full size brush.
I had high hopes for this brush. I used to use a different kind of brush for powder and wanted to change it up. It works ok. Nothing really remarkable about it. Mainly use it for blush now as it really doesn't work well with regular face powder.
I really like this brush--I bought it specifically to carry in my purse for application on the go. So far I have no complaints except that I wish the bristles were just a tad more stiff. But the trade off of them being so soft does make up for it.
Great for on-the-go
It's great how easy it is to store this brush, and how the stiffness is controllable, but I do wish the bristles were a little stiffer--when I'm putting on blush, and I need the full coverage of the brush, I feel like the bristles go in weird directions, instead of doing the full-out spread like I need it to.
Perfect blush/powder brush
I use this brush for blush, but I imagine it would work as a face powder brush just as well. Love that it retracts to protect it from getting so dirty in the makeup bag. Perfect for travel.
Soft!!!! Soft!!! Did I mention soft?!
Love this brush for basic makeup application. I rarely wear facial makeup and this is the perfect and simplest tool to use for me. Thank you for a clean tool to apply makeup when I'm feeling insecure.
Such a great brush, slightly too large
What a great brush. I know other reviewers have thought that it wasn't stiff enough, but I was looking for exactly this kind of brush. It is nice and fluffy, and b/c I have a pretty large face, having it spread out a bit when you use it actually works to my advantage, b/c I can cover more area faster (kidding but not). The brush is soft, although I haven't cleaned it yet so I'm not sure how it is going to feel after it gets cleaned. But for now, it is great. I just wish it were slightly smaller to fit better into my makeup bags and smaller purses.
I did not realize this brush has no actual makeup powder in it...the description led me to think it was a fancy brush that you click to release the baked powder. I was wrong! It is just an overpriced makeup brush. It does not pick up blushes or powders well.
