Where can I buy a retractable make-up brush with lid?

Slightly random Q, but I have been after a foundation/powder brush that I can put in bag/take away when travelling. Everything I have - or have seen - is without a top, so I keep shoving them in plastic bags. Not ideal. Feel pretty sure I have seen clever ones that swivel down and then have a click on top, but damned if I can find them. Anywhere. Throwing it open to the collective wisdom of MN! TIA.

If you buy the Laura Geller balance/brighten from QVC it comes with a retractable brush - not sure that helps really but an MN'er might have a spare one as they come with a brush everytime you buy a new one. Wish I hadn't chucked mine out now - I'd have posted it! blush

BareMinerals have one here but I have never used it, nor mineral makeup so I have no idea if it's any good!

IIRC, I've seen an Ecotools one somewhere too... Boots ?
THat one had a thinner brush bit.

I got one from Sainsburys! Was pretty cheap too.

I have this one:
www.thebodyshop.co.uk/make-up/brushes-and-tools/retractable-blusher-brush.aspx
It is meant for blusher but I use it for powder and bronzer.
If you buy online there is 25% off at the moment with the code NEW25.

Massive thank you to everyone. I should be able to sort myself out from all those suggestions/links. And v. sweet of you Passata! Now I feel like slight idiot that I had singularly failed to track one down to date. The power of MN strikes again. thanks

Real Techniques have just brought out a couple of retractable brushes.

Real techniques have a lovely one, and they are 3 for 2 in boots at the moment.

I bought one from asda about 5 years ago for a couple of quid and I wouldn't be without it now smile
