By far, the softest brush I have ever tried - in comparison to both synthetic and natural hair. It's just very dense, velvety soft, great packaging. And the price - totally worth every penny. Btw, this kabuki is good for an all over face application. Probably too dense or fat as a blush brush.

Great brush - soft, distributes powder well and it small enough to fit in my small cosmetic bag. I had it for 2 months and no shedding so far. For the price, I was expecting a lesser quality brush, but it's really quite good!

i'm definitely all for eco friendly products and this definitely is worth every penny. I got this at Riteaid at a 20% discount a few months ago, so I only paid $3+ for it (including Tax). I wasn't expecting a lot when I bought this because it was really cheap but when I actually used for my Maybelline mineral powder foundation, I was very pleased. I recommend this to everyone who uses powder foundation. It has soft fine bristles (great for my sensitive skin). It's tiny, about 5 inches in height and 1.5 inch in diameter, definitely will fit in the littlest of purses!!! It has a cap cover, which is great. I love it, it's really soft, which is basically the first thing I look for in a brush..

At first I loved this brush. It's ever so soft and it does a good job at applying my EDM ... BUT, after maybe 3 washes, I started noticing the hairs of the brush lose its shape? It was sorta lopsided ... maybe I was buffing too much? It didn't really bother me too much because it was still soft and did its job. BUT THEN, the darn thing broke on me, in 3 pieces! Sooo sad :(

Just discovered the ecotools line through the reviews on this site - thanks! This brush is as good as it gets; soft as could be, deposits powder, bronzer etc... beautifully and has chic, travel friendly packaging. What a steal! Found the line at a local Rite Aid; I've also seen it at other drugstores, but I've never seen the whole product line in one place. Try the blush and angled eyeliner brushes as well; they're top notch.

This brush is an amazing deal. Having tested the Too Faced teddy bear hair retractable kabuki, I can honestly say that I actually PREFER this brush to it. The bristles are much shorter and denser, giving fuller coverage for my mineral makeup. The Too Faced one is prettier to look at, and does retract to a much smaller size. But the $8 versus $28 price tag is hard to argue against. It hasn't shed yet, and is extremely soft against the skin but dense enough to provide full coverage for MMU.

I have been eyeing the retractable kabuki brush by Too Faced for a while. Ulta has it on display and I always admired how soft and dense that brush is. But at $28.50, it was a little too pricey for me.
I stumbled upon this Ecotools retractable kabuki brush at Rite Aid one day and in my opinion, it is just as soft as the Too Faced one. This one costs only $7.99.
I couldn't believe synthetic bristles (100% cruelty-free taklon bristles) could be this nice and soft! The brush comes in a silver recycled aluminum casing and measures about 3" tall. The way it's packaged in the plastic/cloth sleeve makes it a little difficult to get it out initially though.
I have been using it for a week now and there hasn't been any shedding whatsoever. (All my BE and Smashbox brushes shed like crazy!) I have used it with mineral foundation, powder foundation, and SB Halo. It picks up and applies powder nicely. I am extremely happy with this line and will definitely invest in more!
If you do a search for pictures of "retractable kabuki" on MUA, you'll be able to take a look at this brush.

This brush is sooooo soft...not even real animal hair brushes can compete!
I have been wanting to phase out my old brushes and replace them with cruelty free ones for a while now, then saw this line in Rite Aid this week. On the display, they had a sample brush to feel, one swipe across my hand and I was sold. The 100% Taklon bristles are silky, and the head of the brush is softly rounded and feels wonderful on my skin, way better than all the other kabuki brushes, cheap and not so cheap, that I have. Compared to this, my Bare Escentuals brush feels like sandpaper.
This brush was $7.99 and is retractable, so it closes up in a little matte silver recycled aluminum case, and you can throw it in your bag without worrying about it getting dirty.
Application is fine, but since my brush is brand new, I don't know how well it will hold up. I will update in a month or so about that.
Edited to add:
been using this for a while now, absolutely NO shedding, still as soft as ever. I am going to buy all the brushes from this line, they are amazing.
