Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush
Great brush for on the go
This is a great brush from Real Techniques - perfect to keep in a handbag for powder touch ups. It's chunky and got a good weight to it, without being too heavy. The bristles are super soft, and the angled cut means it can apply easily to all the contours of the face. The retractable sleeve is not only useful for travel, but it can also adjust the denseness of the bristles by adjusting the height of the sleeve, which can be useful for more precise contouring. I tend to only use it fully open for powder, as I find it a perfect size for that, but I like that it can multitask if needed. It it easy to keep clean and dries quickly without losing shape.
The only downside is the plastic cap, which cracked easily fairly soon after buying. An aluminium cap to match the handle would be much more durable.

Great to travel with
This was the first Real Techniques brush that I purchased and I love it. I use it to apply my bronzer/contouring and I find it really soft and easy to use - it picks up pigment from products well and feels nice on my face. This is a dense brush and may look a bit dark and patchy in areas if you aren't careful and have a heavy hand!

It applies well to your face the first few uses however after a while, the hairs grew damp - even after I've cleansed them - and leaves streaks across my face.
