Hakuhodo released this exquisite Limited Edition Rose Gold Brush Set for the 2012 Holiday Season. I was very fortunate to receive this set as one of my birthday gifts from Aki...okay, so maybe I hinted, suggested, protested, begged, demanded that he get me this set for my birthday :P
The set includes this lovely non-leather makeup case.
Love the logo zipper pullers!
Is that a bulge in your pocket, or are you happy to see me? Keep scrolling and you'll find out what it is ;) By the way, I also loved that the case came with a plastic flap to protect the brushes.
These brushes are just darling!
Included in this set from left to right :
Powder/Blush Brush G5545 (Blue Squirrel and Goat).
Highlighter Brush G5521 (Blue Squirrel and Goat).
Shadow Brush J5523 (Goat): Similar, but infinitely better than MAC's 217.
Shadow/Liner Brush K005 (Weasel): Similar to MAC's 228.
Brow Brush B264 (Water Badger).
Aki had my name engraved on the handles. He got a few stamps on his point card for that :)
Also included in this set is a Eyebrow/ Eyeshadow Palette.
Yes, we have a mirror!!
All the shadows in this palette are velvety smooth and apply beautifully.
All six shadows have a marvelous muted, murky tone.
Color description from left to right:
