One of Melliesh’s brand new items is this retractable Powder Brush! I love anything that I can take out and about with me.
The Melliesh brand comes in cute packaging:
This brush works for powder and blush and can you can get a different bristle depending on how far you retract the brush:
Obviously you can do this with any retractable face brush! But the flat shape makes it quite versatile for contouring and under the eyes – and at it’s full bloom, it is quite a full, fluffy brush…
Whilst I love the pink case it’s quite cheap and plastic-y.
You simply use the slider to push the brush up. It’s a nice smooth mechanism, and it doesn’t fall back down when you use the brush. I don’t like how there is no lid for this brush – in my bag, the end of the brush is going to end up with loads of bits on it!
Here it is slightly retracted:
When the brush is full – I like how the hairs splay to make a fluffy brush:
I have carried this around with me – it’s not a HUGE brush, but it does take up fair space in my make up bag. It’s quite nice to use – the bristles are soft and don’t feel synthetic – and I get a good result from it:
I guess I have so many brushes that I don’t haul them much anymore unless I see something quite unusual! This was a nice purchase, it’s better than the brushes you get with powder and blushers so I will be using it regularly.
