Review: Born Pretty Store Retractable Powder Brush

You might be aware that not only sells nail art supplies, but also a large variety of beauty and lifestyle products, amongst which are make-up brushes.  I was given the opportunity to try out one of their retractable powder brushes and I chose this black one with butterfly and flower motifs.

The outer packaging is very cute indeed but it is also practical as you get a metallic barrel which covers the bristles for easier closure and the cap closes tightly as well.  The only thing I don't like about the brush is the smell that the bristles give off when you open the brush for the first time but it goes away after washing.  Other than that, the bristles are very soft and I haven't experienced any shedding or bleeding to date. As for drying time, I left it to dry over-night and in the morning it was ready to be used!

The brush has come at a right time as I am trying to use up my mineral powder foundation and this brush is by far the best one I have tried to apply such a product (although kabuki brushes are the best to apply powder products, I am not a big fan of them because of their small handle). The reason why I like this brush so much is that the bristles are not stiff dense and while they pick up the product effectively, I can buff the powder foundation and other powder products over my face effortlessly for a nice and natural look.  Moreover, this brush is best used with mineral products as the bristles are made out of natural hair.  

The brush is conveniently sized to carry with you while travelling and being retractable, you don't have to fear that your bag insides are going to end up with foundation or blusher smeared all over them.

This brush retails for $6.53 from and shipping is free on all orders worldwide. You can get yours at 10% off be entering the code EBABK31 at checkout.

  1. Thats got such cute packaging! I have a similar one from Models Own. I was thinking of preloading it with product see if that works because mineral products are such a pain for travelling with.

    1. Hmmm the idea crossed my mind but I actually think it would still be messy in the sense that the powder might end up in the cap etc. If you try it let me know how it worked out for you :) xx

  2. I have this but in leopard print. It's super cute and actually works well, I like to keep it in my handbag (:

  3. To find a good brush as to your liking really makes the make up experience very fruitful and effective.Very cute packaging.I like the bristles and the density I must say and easy to carry lipstick
