Quick Review: Chanel Retractrable Kabuki Brush

Hi all,

I finally got myself my first Chanel brush. I have been wanting to buy a Chanel brush but none of their brushes attracts me because they’re expensive and the hair does not feel as soft as I expect it to be. However when I heard that Chanel is releasing a kabuki brush and after reading the review from Ommorphia Beauty BarΒ , I decided to get this brush.



So how does ChanelΒ Retractable Kabuki Brush feels?

This brush is a dome shaped brush with a very dense hair. It feels super soft; how should I say it? Β It is just very very soft. Is it comparable to the softness of Tom Ford brushes? Definitely yes. The hair is made of synthetic hair and it can be used for applying all over powder, blush and even helps to contour your face.






This brush is my first retractable brush which I can safely put in my make up bag. I don’t need to worry that the brush will get dirty or will change in shape because it is nicely protected by the brush cap. It is my go to touch up brush when I am not at home; I am using this to reapply my blush and bronzer. The density of this brush helps me to apply bronzer to sculpt my face. It also helps me to even blend my blush after reapplying it.



I have also washed my brush once. I did not take a picture of the brush afterwards. But I Β can tell you that the brush doesn’t change in shape and the hair does not shed after washing. Because of its density, it took about 12 hours to be completely dry.

Final Thought:

Overall, I am madly in love with this brush for its softness and density. It’s just a pity that it comes in white colored hair, because I know eventually the color won’t look as white as what it looks like now. Nevertheless, I am still loving this brush a lot πŸ™‚


Have you checked out this brush? What do you think of it?

    I have a kabuki brush from Chanel that is stored in a velvet pouch. I still recall it was close to $90 a few years back. Definitely not travel friendly but the bristles is dense and soft.

  2. Leanne says:

    I agree with you! I did a comparison between it & my Tom Ford brushes. This kabuki is that soft.

  3. Caise says:

    I checked it out and I really like it:)

  4. Sunny says:

    Hey Meryl, thanks for the review! I don’t think I’ve seen this around yet, but maybe I didn’t look closely enough! If it takes 12 hours to dry in Singapore, I’m saying it’ll take the whole day here. Still, I’d love to feel this once!

  5. Sounds like a really good brush! And it just looks super cute too πŸ™‚

  6. Replica says:

    I keep reading great things about this brush. I only have a few Chanel brushes but they are older versions before the last revamp. I think I might have to put this brush on my list to get. Thanks for the review πŸ™‚

  7. Love your review. I also have the Chanel Kabuki brush and i may buy another one because i just love it that much.

    Great post, I think I’m gonna cave in to get a piece of this as currently I don’t own any brushes except a foundation brush from Kose :/ Anyway, whats the pricing for this in SG?

    Girl you must stop tempting me. That brush looks so so beautiful not that I need another face brush. I must resist.

      I’m a good girl, Jacq :p
      I honestly think that this brush is worth buying as it’s very soft and retractable. It’s nice to be put into your make up pouch. πŸ˜€
