Real Techniques Kabuki Brush
If you saw my post last week on the Real Techniques Duo Fiber Collection, (you can see it here!) you may remember I mentioned ordering the Kabuki brush from Real Techniques too. I ordered the set and kabuki brush from My Pretty Face Place which sells RT brushes along with lots of other lovely bits for a lot cheaper than other places and their shipping is reasonable too.

I bought this brush mainly because I wanted more powder brushes as I previously only had one, but I got this one specifically because of it's small size, perfect for carrying around in my bag as I hate carrying massive brushes around with me. They just take up too much space!
As you can tell from the photos the brush can be used the way it is which is a nice fluffy soft brush great for applying powders and blush or it can be opened up, which turns the brush into a flatter, thinner brush which is great for contouring with.
Can I also add that when you open the brush up and close it again, that it makes a really lovely satisfying clicking noise so you know the magnets have locked it back into place. This doesn't matter really - I just really love the noise it makes! ha ha!
The brush itself is really soft and feels lovely on the skin. It does a great job at buffing powders into the skin for a flawless finish.
I got this cheaper than it usually sells for I think it was €7 (ish) from My Pretty Face Place which is a great price, considering I've seen Boots and other sites selling it for €15!
Over all its a lovely brush to have, maybe not an essential but I really like it and like I said it's great for carrying around for touch ups especially if you have a smaller bag, and it's unique and great that it's a 2 in 1 brush so you can use it for powder and contour/blush so it reduces the number of brushes you would potentially have to carry for touch ups!
Have you tried this Kabuki brush or anything similar?
