Two weeks ago, I went to the Hakuhodo store in Aoyama (by the way, the Aoyama store has the largest selection of Hakuhodo brushes in Japan), and added brushes J190S and G5524 to my brush family.
The J190S is a synthetic brush, and retails for ¥ 1,260 ($15.91). This brush is fantastic for applying liner, and doing detail work on both the face and body. The bristles are firm, yet yield enough flexibility (bounce) to provide a precise and controlled application.
The G5524 is made of Volcano Squirrel hair (Yes, this critter actually exists, it's also known as the Poas Squirrel), and retails for ¥ 4,515 ($56.99). This brush is perfect for applying concealer, crease work, precise highlighting and contouring, and everything else in between :) The hairs of the G5524 is soooo silky soft, I just love how luxurious it feels on the skin.
I'm delighted with my purchase and totally infatuated with these brushes. If you can get your hands on them, I highly recommend them!
What are some of your favorite brushes?
