i been using this brush for a while now and washed 3 times.. after the 1st and 2nd wash it was working fine, but after the 3rd wash i found the hairs keep dropping out >.< even dropped on my face and my clothing when i am applying loose powder....
really pretty upset and this brush isnt cheap... i had their blusher brush and it is in very good condition after many yrs hence i decide to buy this retractable...
now i dont know what to do with it...should i bring back to the shu eumura counter and let them know?

this brush is such a rip off! the hairs keep falling off all over the place! and yeah there is no cover so the brush is pretty much exposed to whatever nasties are out there... so disappointing...

Wow I guess I will be the first person to say something nice about this.
Yes the lack of a cover on the end does bother me, but I keep my makeup bag pretty clean and I wash my brushes regularly so that gets a pass.
I don't use this as a powder brush, I use it as a blush brush and sometimes as a bronzer brush. I bought it in the store fully intending to use it for my shu blush and not face powder. The previous reviewers are right- it is simply too narrow to be used to pick up powder, but that is obvious by looking at it IMHO. The hairs haven't fallen out, the brush is firm enough to pick up product but not so much that it scratches. It is smaller than my T Leclerc travel brush which simply was too bulky to fit into my makeup bag and anyway it is a true powder brush and did not work for my blush.
I do admit there are cute small travel blusher brushes out there for less money (Stila has one in a cute pink casing which comes to mind) and if you are looking for a true powder brush and your purse is as big as Jessica Simpson's, then T. Leclerc's brush is great (I keep mine at work) as well. However this is a fine travel blusher/bronzer blush for touch ups. Just because it was marketed badly (this is a crappy powder brush but a great blush brush) does not make it a bad brush in itself.

Ladies, save your money. I just pulled this out of the package from Shu website and honestly, I was shocked. It came twist-tied to a cardboard backing, wrapped in a cellophane envelope, looking for all the world like a $2.99 USD special from the drugstore. It is much too narrow to be an effective powder brush, or even, really, a blusher. And, as noted below, it retracts into its handle and there is no cover to cap the end, so the brush head is exposed to whatever bits and pieces are knocking around in your purse. The company suggests, quite unhelpfully, one should "keep the brush clean." I intend to do so by returning it immediately. Forty-five dollars!!! Unbelieveable.

I read so many magazines that rave the Shu Uemura brushes, so finally I could not stop myself to rush into SU shop and took a look.
Well ... it's nothing more than famous. The hair! My god very very rough and wrost is most of its brushes are not only made by animal hair - but a mixture of synthetic hair and animal hair. As most of ladies here know, how we apply make up by different hair brushes would require different skills. Therefore, you could imagine the hardship and the grest challenge granted by SU brushes.
I and my friend tried to figure out why it is so expensive - the package is even less than attractive! My god!! I woulr never spend my $ on SU brushes. They may give you great finish if and only if you are rrrreally professional in makeup.....

It is a retractable brush with no lid!! When I open my cosmetic bag, the head of the brush is always exposed.

PROS: sleek packaging, retractable brush, good quality; CONS: no lid; COMMENTS: retractable brush but leaves end where brush head is exposed, brush head is made of goat hair, a larger brush head would be better for loose powder application. I think you can get a better brush for this price.

hmm... I dont know if I can call this a powder brush.. it's not fluffy enough to apply powder!
It is cute and pretty looking but it doesnt really do much for me.. so for the price.. I wouldnt not bother to get another one. =T

I agree with ziebam. I bought this because I thought it'd be a great brush to bring along without having to bring a brush roll. Although it's retractable, it doesn't come with a cap. What's up with that? It's not a bad brush, but honestly for $45 I expected more.

This powder brush comes in a sleek silver tube that you push silver piece down to expose the brush. The brush cost $45 so save your money. There is no lid so even though the brush is within the silver tube, stuff can get in the hole on top. It is also not fluffy enough for a powder brush, better suited as a blush brush. It does look nice but you can do much better in terms of brush quality for the price.
