I bought this for $7.99 usd to use with my Bare Naturale foundation in place of the horrid built-in brush. This is my first Ecotools brush and I am absolutely in love with it. I want them all now! I have never felt anything so soft and I can't wait to put on my makeup with it every day. It makes buffing and blending effortless. If anything ever happens to this one I will absolutely purchase another.

I love this brush. I bought this to use with my MAC Mineralize pressed powder because that compact does not come with an applicator and it is best applied with a kabuki according to my SA.

I paid $11 CAD for this at London Drugs which is very very cheap for a retractable Kabuki brush. I love that I can put this in my purse and I don't have to worry about the bristles being squashed in my purse.

What I love about Ecotools brushes are the synthetic bristles. They are very high quality and in my opinion, are the same quality as expensive brushes for a fraction of the price. I own every brush that Ecotools makes and I use them everyday. They never shed and their brushes distribute product very evenly. There are no splotches and the bristles do not scratch. Also, they are low maintenance and easy to clean. They do not need shampoo like regular hair brushes.

When I use this to apply my MAC Mineralize powder, I get very even coverage and it gives me an airbrushed look.

This brush is very comparable to the Too Faced Kabuki brush which sells for $33 at Sephora, except that the bristles are not as dense as the Too Faced one. My only complaint about the product is that the metal casing is a bit flimsy and cheap. However, for $11 I can't complain. I will continue to purchase and buy another one to put in my other purses.

It's not my HG kabuki, but I definitely use it when on the go or if all my favorite brushes are being washed. Like everyone else has said, it's very soft and dense enough to give good foundation coverage! The only downside is that it's hard to find at stores so get it when you see it!

It doesn't shed, and it is the softest brush I've ever used. I bought it for nine dollars and I will be buying more!

There's not much more that needs to be said about EcoTools brushes. Add me to the roster of EcoTools Fanatics! The Retractable Kabuki Brush is always in my handbag for powder touchups and buffing on the go.

This was the last brush I was able to find on my search to get all of the Ecotools brushes. I was going to get that really expensive Too Faced retractable kabuki when I felt how incredibly soft it was. Well, I didn't get the Too Faced brush because this one is just as soft, and 1/3 the price. The brush has a sleek aluminum casing that closes nicely and retracts easlily. It has the same uber-soft taklon bristles as the other Ecotools. Picks up just enough powder to fluff on for touch ups. It's always in my purse.

I said no to buying it again because I have enough kabukis. I bought this because I was frustrated with my Posh kabuki always leaving black hairs all over my face. This brush does not shed, but it isn't as dense as my Posh kabuki and thus doesn't buff mineral makeup in as well, so one lippie off for that. Otherwise it is extremely soft (even softer than the Posh) and would work well for loose powder application. It is also a good brush for travel as it is retractable and so that may be where I will use it as I'm kind of happy with my loose powder brush from Essence of Beauty. My other kabuki is Essence of Beauty and it sheds blonde hairs all over my face, but is also denser than this one, although scratchier than my Posh kabuki.

This brush is for my on the go make up touches when I'm in a rush. Because the MAC 182 isn't very portable I bought this due to the reviews. Lolz it lives up to the MAC 182 but I wouldn't say it can replace the brush easily. I would say this is a great brush for the beginners who are just starting out and do not want to fork the extra cash for the MAC because the 182 is really expensive lolz.

Have I mentioned how darn SOFT this is? :D

After decades of searching for brushes that do not leave hairs on the face, I bought Ecotools, thanks to this website. I think I've died and gone to heaven! I don't care if you spend $200 on a brush, you will never find any better than these. Thought I might not like them because they might be too soft. No so. They feel so wonderful--euphoric!!! I have confidence when out in public knowing that I have no bits of bristles on my face. I've figured out what my natural life span should be and will now buy enough brushes to last me that long--in case they stop making them. Can you tell that I love, love, love these brushes?
