Melliesh Limited Edition Retractable Powder Brush Review

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.

What is your favourite portable brush?

    It does look a little Argos makeup-kit cheap, which is a shame considering it performs well!
    I love love my Stila Retractable Powder Brush #31. It’s tulip shaped, and probably my best impulse buy!

      Hi H

      I love tulip shaped brushes LOVE

      It’s a shame they made the case so boxy and plastic….apart from that the brush itself is great!
