Though she be but little, she is fierce!

If there's one thing my family is passionate about, it's traveling. And since we're traveling with a toddler these days, packing light is essential to a stress free and successful trip. For me, that means streamlining my makeup game and bringing tools that are practical while still saving space. So when I went looking for a smaller sized blush brush for traveling, this Chikuhodo retractable blush brush was the obvious answer.

The Chikuhodo Makie Series MK-12 Cheek brush is the ULTIMATE brush for traveling light. It's about the size of a lipstick while retracted, and opens up to an exceptional brush. The bristles are incredibly soft and the perfect density/stiffness for delivering just the right amount of blush. I do have to give a few extra swirls to diffuse the blush to my liking, but that has more to do with my personal preferences then the brush's performance. The only aspect that I didn't love was that, when open, the brush can sometimes feel not completely secure in the case. Not a deal-breaker by any means, but noticeable.

If you are looking for a quality brush to travel with or to keep in your purse for those touch-up moments, this is the brush you need. The size of a lipstick with the functionality of a full-sized brush, what more could you ask for?!
