Fanatastic high quality brush use this everyday with my MSFN I look so FLAWLESS. It NEVER sheds when I wash it and drys soo fast. I love it I will be getting another one.

This is better than my Chanel travel kabuki. It gives a well-blended finish to powders. I use it to apply Guerlain Meteorites and it picks up the perfect amount. I also use it to apply other powders and it gives me a flawless finish. The brush is soft and small enough to carry in my purse for touchups. I haven't noticed any hair shedding and with my Chanel kabuki I always did. It's cheap but better quality than any other brushes I've used.
The last time I washed this it came unglued so I still have the brush but it isn't stuck to the outside case part that lets you slide it up and down. It still works great but looks too ugly to use in public so I only use it at home or in the ladies room and I'll be ordering a replacement.

This is my favourite brush! It's cheap ($10 at London Drugs compared to $50 for other kabuki's at Sephora), it works really well with mineral powders, it's cruelty free, very soft, and it's portable. The only downfall is that it takes a while to dry after cleaning, but if you do it before going to bed, by morning it will be all dry.

I looooooove this! Bought it on a whim at CVS a few months back and haven't considered another retractable kabuki since. Like the rest of the EcoTools brushes, it's super soft, picks up product well and distributes it nicely. I'm not too keen about how the lid and top of the slide-out part scratch each other, but nothing major. Fits perfectly into my NYX makeup bag, and even if I just threw it into my purse alone, it'd be fine. I'd recommend this to anyone :D

I have just discovered EcoTools...and I am sorry that I was missing out on this line for so long! With rare exceptions, I do not purchase drugstore makeup brushes because I truly believe that having high quality brushes is key to better makeup application - so I assumed that a line at this price point wouldn't have much to offer. After seeing so many positive reviews online for EcoTools, I decided to buy this brush for my purse for quick blush or powder touch-ups during the day. Besides the design, I was also very attracted by the fact that these brushes are green. Then I tried this kabuki, and I was in love!!! It is silky, sturdy, and does a fantastic job of distributing powder makeup products. It feels so good on my skin that I find excuses for using it (weird, I know, but so goes the life of a makeup junkie). I have since purchased another one of these same brushes (plus a larger 5 brush kit) for my sister, and an eyeshadow brush for myself - my next purchase is the bronzer brush. None of these have disappointed in the least. They wash beautifully, and no shedding whatsoever. These are every bit as good as many of my more expensive brushes, and are in fact *much better* than any of the Sephora brand or Bobbi Brown brushes that I have owned. I would love to see even more styles from this brand, especially a Duo Fibre brush! Highly recommended.
EDITED TO ADD: I had to remove several of the lippies that I originally gave to this product, as my first Ecotools kabuki brush fell apart about the first few washings...the brush literally came unglued from its sleeve. Thinking it was a fluke, I bought the same brush once more - and the same thing quickly happened again. (Frustrating, to say the least). This is the first disappointing product I have ever tried from this brand, and hopefully it will be the last.

I love this brush for on the go. It's perfect for throwing in your purse. My only problem with it is that I've had some trouble with cleaning it. It became so so oily but it's better now. Any ideas of what to wash this brush with?

I like this brush, but it only received 3 stars because it FELL APART on me after only a few short months! I ended up needing to hot-glue the bottom aluminum tube-half to the retractable brush part. It's not as if I wasn't washing it properly either... But at least it's beyond sturdy now. I even tried ripping it apart again, but hot glue isn't a force to be reckoned with :)
My only other qualm is how much unnecessary plastic goes into the packaging of a supposedly eco-friendly product. Seems counter-intuitive, though this doesn't effect my overall rating.
It's a decent kabuki and I love it for on-the-go. It's easy to just chuck it into my overnight bag or even my purse. I'd recommend it to anyone who travels or likes to keep a powder compact with them during the day, because this is much more sanitary than using one of those gross sponges that you place right back on top of your pressed powder after it soaks up all of your sweat and sebum :(

I love this kabuki brush! This brush is incredibly soft and never sheds after washes.This is a synthetic hair brush (which to me is always a plus) and the packaging it is contained in is recyclable. This kabuki is great for applying setting powder or powder foundation. I found that this brush is not as dense as other kabuki brushes but I like this aspect because I use this for touch-ups when I'm on the go; not to apply powder foundation. I have tried this to apply my powder foundation and it works very well; it gave light to medium coverage and it blended the product nicely. The only complaint that I have is that when I put the cap back on, the metal frame that encloses the brush scratches the bottom of the cap. Still a great brush nonetheless.
