This brush was okay and it did it's job, nothing special. It did a pretty good job of applying mmu and mediocre job with blush/bronzer, that is up until I washed it for the 4th time and it just fell apart. The bristles didn't fall out or anything, but all the metal pieces just separated and I couldn't put them back together. I am definitely tossing this because I am liking my E.L.F. studio powder brush way better anyway, and it's cheaper!

Wow! Hands down one of the best brushes I've used for powder or foundation - liquid included (you heard me right). I put concealer, foundation and stipple with this and everything just *melts* into my skin, without the brush absorbing much product... and then this is great for powder (what it's really intended for) and blush too. I got this for sale and immediately after I used it that night went out and bought 2 more the next day, so I can use with different products. And the retractable casing means that not only is it trael-easy, if you put the brush more or less 'in' you get a tighter/smaller vs. looser/wider surface area for the brush, meaning different application. Soo soft. For some reason I never found foundation brushes the right size or my application technique wasn't right for it. But this is great, imho better than many stippling brushes including MAC (although I realize, different).

Over here in Singapore, this brush cost is SGD29.90. I got it cheaper on Ebay at SGD19.90. Can't beat the price at US:( How I wish I live there! Alright! I love this brush. It is the softest retractable kabuki, doesn't shed, and multi purpose! I use it for face powder, and blush! I highly recommend this product!

I loved this brush ever since I bought it! It has very soft bristles and is dense enough but not too dense. It is very handy for travelling or if you just want to be able to throw your brush into your purse and go. I was actually amazed at how cheap it was because the quality is really great. It is probably the best Kabuki brush you can get in a drugstore. Definetly recommend it!!!

UPDATE:
I dropped it in my bathroom so that the actual brush got dettached from the little lid that it's in, so I was holding three piece: the lid, the bursh part with the slidy metal piece, and the part which holds the brush. I asked my dad to superglue it and it was fixed over night. :))
Still (after over 2 years of use) happy as ever with this brush!!

This wasn't what I was looking for. I've had Essence of Beauty brushes before but I don't really like their quality. My sister showed me her Essence kabuki and it's nice and FULL and soft. This one, and the Ulta one, are packed too tightly. It doesn't fluff out like a kabuki. It looks more like the bronzer brush.

I feel like when I use it or finishing powders, the powders get lost in the brush and don't end up on my face. Not what I expected. It is soft though.

Surprisingly and unlike most reviewers here, my experience with this brush was below average, at best. The casing came apart after only a short time, and the bristles, while very soft at first, became rough after only a couple of washings. I am not impressed and will not buy this brush again. If it were only the issue of the casing (tube) coming apart, I would use and repurchase this brush; but having the bristles lose their softness after moderate use is the real deal-breaker. I was so hoping these average-priced, readily-available brushes would be another HG and I'm quite disappointed.

Great brush - dense, doesn't shed, cheap, suitable for strict vegetarians (possibly vegans too?). I've used it for both blush and loose powder, and prefer it for powder.

My single packaging gripe is that the aluminium lid doesn't fit *perfectly* on the base - but for the price, I really shouldn't complain.

This is such a good brush! After a bad experience with my last kabuki brush (shedding nightmares), I was looking for a new one saw the good reviews here and thought, what the heck, I'll try it. I'm so glad I did, this brush is so soft and high quality in spite of the $8 price tag. I love that it's retractable because I can just throw it in my bag with my compact and I'm good to go. I've washed it twice and haven't experienced any shedding, which is a good sign. It's not as dense as my last brush, but it picks up powder very well and buffs it into my skin flawlessly.
I couldn't be happier with this brush, I would buy it again and again.

Just like everyone already said, this is an AMAZING brush. It's the softest, most durable and thickest kabuki I've ever used, and it makes my mineral foundation go on so much smoother than it used to with other kabuki brushes. It feels amazing on your skin and picks up just enough powder to get you what you want but won't cake any product on. This is my favorite new brush! I should buy another one so I have one in my travel purse and one to use every day!
