This retractable kabuki brush is ideal for anyone needing touchups on-the-go. It works with loose and pressed powders, foundation, highlight, contour, blush and more because the bristles retract. Fully extended, it's ideal for loose powder or light application of foundation. Retract it halfway and the bristles are tighter making it ideal for applying contour. Retract the bristles completed and they’re perfectly protected when you pack the brush away in your tote.
