Love for Brushes

I'm developing a love for brushes of all kinds.  I bought a few higher end brushes and they are amazing.  They are incredibly soft and my makeup glides on like a dream.  There are so many interesting shapes. I am really interested in creating a beautiful brush collection.  Show your brushes and share any cleaning and storage tips and let us know which ones are your favorites.

Yes it will be restocked, maybe not as a set but as individual brushes. SoniaG has an Instagram post that explains the roll out. All her brushes are permanent, none are limited edition. There is just a delay in restocking because they take so long to make. 

Re: RE: Love for Brushes

I haven’t heard anything. Come to think of it, I’m not sure if that set was a limited one-time release or not. Have you emailed Beautylish about it yet? 

Re: Love for Brushes

I’m looking for recommendations for an outer v brush.... please share your holy grail....

Re: Love for Brushes

When I don’t just use whichever shader or blender I’ll use elsewhere on my lids that day, I reach for one of these:

Left to right: 

 

  - Chikuhodo Fuji Makie Eyeshadow - I’ve had it for only a few days and already love it as a shader. It’s smaller than all my other shaders, so it’s easier for me to work with. Perfect for packing color in the outer and inner corners. It can blend, but it’s about as efficient at that as any other shader—which is why I prefer the next brush for complete outer corner work. 

 

  - Sonia G Crease One - looks like a cross between a pencil and crease, but it’s my favorite of these 4 brushes for outer crease work. It’s denser than the average pencil brush, with a brush shape that allows for blending. I can pack on color very precisely and easily blend it out with this single brush.  

 

  - Wayne Goss 19 Precision Blending - besides crease work, I like this little brush for blending out the outer corner when I use a different brush to pack on color. I also use it sometimes to lay down a softer layer of color in the outer corner. 

 

  - Make Up For Ever 234 Angled Shader - when I don’t use it for under-eye concealer, I stamp color onto lid corners with it. I don’t normally blend eyeshadow with it... this is one of those times I’d reach for the WG 19 to blend the corner out. But its shape makes it easy to work with. 

Re: Love for Brushes

@WinglessOne Awesome brushes! Thank you for the feedback on each one Smiley Happy

 

Best,

Re: Love for Brushes

Thanks @RebeccaBT !

Re: Love for Brushes

I really like Sigma Beauty's e48 pointed crease brush.  It's got like a little arrow shape to it, so it gets right into the crease, but you can also use the point to do the outer V.  It's also 50% off at the moment.

Re: Love for Brushes

@CheerMomma I recommend the MAKE UP FOR EVER - 234 Angled Shader Brush. I have found this is great for shading the outer crease. I hope this helps!

 

Best,

Rebecca 

Re: Love for Brushes

My Chikuhodo x Beautylish Fuji Makie brushes arrived 2 days ago. I let them sit out in a cup overnight to fluff out. If you ordered these, expect to have them soon (if you don’t already have them)!

I haven’t used them with makeup yet. I’ve just brushed them against my bare face. They feel verrrry nice, very soft. Not as soft as the Z brushes of course, but still. I expect these to shed a bit during the first week or 2 of use, and I hope they don’t keep shedding. Tomorrow will be the first time I use them. I’m particularly excited to try the highlight and eyeshadow brushes.

I wish the “Beautylish/Chikuhodo” line appeared below Mt. Fuji instead of through it. And sure, the goat hairs have splayed quite a bit in just 24 hours of storage without brush guards. But as long as the brushes perform well, I’ll be happy with them. They sure are pretty in person. 

Re: Love for Brushes

Such an aesthetically pleasing set and the color 😍. Thanks for sharing @WinglessOne

RE: Re: Love for Brushes

@WinglessOne I don’t know why I passed on this one. Beautiful set.

Re: Love for Brushes

@WinglessOne That brush set is stunning.  I love the royal blue color.

Absolutely gorgeous, @WinglessOne!

@WinglessOne So beautiful! The highlight and powder brushes look divine, can't wait to hear what you think!

Re: Love for Brushes

Thx for posting @WinglessOne.  I think i will order it once they send me another link.  

Re: Love for Brushes

So so so very beautiful @WinglessOne. I would be happy just staring at those beauties everyday.

Love for Brushes

I let out an audible gasp when I saw on Beautylish that Wayne Goss is preparing to re-release some of his original 2014 brushes. I'm welling up at the prospect of being able to buy additional brushes that I've loved while filling in where I have a gap from the original releases. The original fan brush is exquisite to me and I never felt that the undyed goat hair version was as well done. I've been sourcing dupes for his original #18 eyeshadow brush, and I definitely want another #13 so I can use it more regularly. There's many things to love from the original eye and face brush releases. Merry Christmas to me!!

Re: Love for Brushes

@TraceyEB Did they already re-releases these brushes and I completely missed it? I know I saw that were returning soon but now I don’t even see them up on Beautylish.

Re: Love for Brushes

Hi @Mrose251, the brushes have not been re-released. The 2014 brushes were removed after the Beautylish x Chikuhodo brush debacle.  Not sure that they were related but that was the timing. In a recent video, Wayne feautured a kohl pencil from his upcoming line with a '''coming soon" notation and also used a brush but didn't confirm what #he was using. Will let you know when I see the brushes reappear.

Re: Love for Brushes

Thank you @TraceyEB

RE: Love for Brushes

I picked up some new brushes this week from a new-ish brand called Rephr (I believe its supposed to be a play on the phonetic spelling of refer)

 

The brand is based in Canada but selling CF goat hair brushes made in Kumano, Japan.

 

At the moment the line only includes 7 brushes; 5 of which are available individually. There’s also a powder brush that’s available as part of a full set, and at the moment they’re sending out prototypes of a crease brush that they’ll be selling in the future.

 

As best as I can tell from the limited info on their website, it seems they crowdsource design input for new brushes by sending out prototypes and use that feedback to refine the shapes of brushes they are making. I’m not clear how long they’ve been in business but I’ve only been able to find info on them as far back as September of this year.

 

I was pretty skeptical when I first heard about them because it sounded like some sort of weird brush Ponzi scheme. However I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the quality. The hairs are uncut and softer than goat hair brushes (both dyed and undyed) I own that were many multiples more expensive (TF, the new Suqqu, Chikuhodo) I haven’t really used all of them enough yet to provide detailed reviews but so far the 01 and 03 are the standouts from what I’ve tried. Since I haven’t seen a lot of info or feedback on the brand yet, I thought it might be helpful to share here.

 

I’ll come back and post more detailed reviews once I’ve used all of them for a few weeks but so far I’d say they seem worth investigating at the very least. And as a Canadian it’s nice to be able to buy Japanese made brushes without having to pay duties for once.
