Questions & Answers for Hourglass Retractable Kabuki Brush

Question
For Bare Minerals foundation?
I've hated the brush that came with my bareminerals foundation kit, I love the finish it gives but it sheds occasionally and is scratchy. Would this be a solid alternative or would it be too firm?

I think it would be too firm. I love Hourglass brushes, but unfortunately, I really don't think they make one that would be appropriate for applying loose mineral foundations. I'd recommend you look at the Urban Decay Optical Blurring Brush or the Sephora brand mineral foundation brush. The Sephora brush is surprisingly awesome for the price and is one of their best-sellers.

Question
Size & Use
What diameter is this brush? It looks huge!

What is it best used for? I've read it's too dense to use as a Kabuki as it picks up too much powder. Would it be too large for applying foundation?

It's about an inch and a half in diameter. The whole brush is about 2.5 maybe 3 inches tall but the actual brush (not including the handle) is only 3/4 of an inch...maybe an inch. It's smaller than you think but still large enough to buff on a liquid foundation (which is how I use it....and I looooove it). Powders would be pretty tough cause it's so small and dense.
