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.

RE: Love for Brushes

Details on a bunch of different brush ranges Koyudo is discontinuing

Re: RE: Love for Brushes

If anyone is looking to purchase any of the discontinued brushes, you should grab them now. A number of the brushes have already sold out at CDJapan, Fude Beauty, and Beautylish. Also the Fupa series is being replaced with the new F series which is already posted on the Koyudo website. However, almost all of the new brushes have synthetic bristles. Only the Koyudo 03 and 06 F-series brushes are a mix of goat hair and synthetic bristles. They claim that the synthetic is extremely soft. I am curious to see what the reviews of the new collection will be.

@Mochapj  I also read on r / fudebrushes Koyudo will be raising their prices soon.  

Re: Love for Brushes

In case anyone didn't get the email earlier today: the Hachiko brush is live at Beautylish. 

 

No specific brushmaker info, but I'm guessing it's Koyudo.No specific brushmaker info, but I'm guessing it's Koyudo.

I'm still trying to talk myself out of it. I might not drop and break it, but I'd probably get all weepy-eyed each time I picked it up. (Hi, I'm a bit emotional about stories like this.) Buffing powders onto a teary face is probably a bad idea. 😂 If any of you order it, I hope you enjoy it! 

Re: Love for Brushes

@WinglessOne every time I read this story I tear up

Re: Love for Brushes

@WinglessOne I ordered the brush.  Its just so lovely and I couldn't stop myself. 

Re: Love for Brushes

@WinglessOne  Wow from the box to the brush, such beautiful details.

Re: Love for Brushes

@WinglessOne Oh my goodness.  I did get the email and I'm contemplating a purchase.  I'm supposed to be committed to no/buy- low/buy but BIC makes it difficult.  This brush is just adorable and I'm sure if I purchase it, I will never use it. It will sit on my vanity and look gorgeous. Smh Decisions..... Decisions.   

Re: Love for Brushes

@tjffc Heh, I have one* brush I never use—well, except to occasionally sweep along my face or arm, because it's so soft and plush and I love the way it splays. I don't wanna get it dirty! It's my one and only exception to the "don't buy it if you'll never use it" rule: 

Spoiler
I bought this knowing I'd probably never use it, but I didn't care because IT IS A CAT'S PAW and I love cats and I needed this brush in my life. 🤣 This was a Beautylish order from last year, I think. 

Me: I really gotta curb my spending. Also me: Oooooh, the Koyudo cat paw brush is back in stock!Me: I really gotta curb my spending. Also me: Oooooh, the Koyudo cat paw brush is back in stock!

Cutest. Brush. Ever.Cutest. Brush. Ever.

And see, that's why I'm terrible at helping folks stick to no/low-buys. 😂 But you'll find lots of great support in the Low-Buy/No-Buy Thread. 

 

November's gonna be rough this year for any of us trying to hold on to our money. We should all set filters on our mailboxes right now to reroute promo emails to folders we won't open. And if Beautylish does another collab set with Chikuhodo this winter, those brushes had better be ugly because I have no business buying more this year. 🤣 

 

*Edit: Okay, technically I have 2 unused brushes. But one of them is the foundation brush that came with my Chikuhodo x Beautylish Fuji Makie set in 2018. I never use that style of foundation brush, so this one stays in a drawer. I should consider trading it with someone, someday. 

Re: Love for Brushes

Lol @WinglessOne , I nearly broke my low buy with that Visage Tag...😂🤣

Re: Love for Brushes

@WinglessOne  - Seriously, "ugly brushes?"

Re: Love for Brushes

@MCSSavvy C'mon, work with me here! Surely Chikuhodo's capable of producing ugly brushes... I mean, I've yet to see one myself, but IT MUST BE POSSIBLE. 🤣 

 

Now I genuinely wonder if any of Chikuhodo's brushmakers occasionally miss inferior hairs during the sorting process, or botch the hand-binding process, and what the resulting brushes would look like. Obviously they wouldn't perform properly, but would they actually look defective? Is it really possible for Chikuhodo to release ugly brushes? Or, they could create brushes per their usual high standards and just give them an unappealing design—though "unappealing" is very subjective. Some folks hate the Passion series brushes solely because of the shape and color of their handles. Along those lines: what would a very ugly Chikuhodo brush look like? 

 

Now I'll probably dream about crazily designed brushes tonight. 😂

Re: Love for Brushes

@WinglessOne  --Vaya, vaya, vaya.... maybe, maybe, but something tells me they'd never sell it.  Though your post has made me start to wonder what if.... I mean there has to be a brush here and there that fails QA, right?  What do they do with it?  

Taste is subjective so I suppose some designs and color choices are less appealing than others but you pose an excellent question.  So does there exist or can there ever be an "ugly" Chikuhodo brush?  It boggles my mind... 🤣

Re: Love for Brushes

@WinglessOne 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂. I love it!   The brush you have is absolutely gorgeous and I don't blame you.  I will probably cave and buy the Hachiko. My Kazan Homare brushes were delivered today. I'm traveling for work and can't wait to get home to see them.   BIC is a bad influence on me.  I love to shop!  It's really sad when the UPS delivery driver tells you that you have more deliveries "by far" than anyone in the whole neighborhood.  Just sad.   Well, I think I'm going to headed over to purchase Hachiko brush. 

Re: Love for Brushes

@WinglessOne @It’s so pretty but I’m talking myself out of it because it’s ceramic. 

Re: Love for Brushes

@SportyGirly125 Yeah, I do kinda worry I might accidentally bump it off the counter or shelf onto my bathroom floor, which would definitely shatter it. I guess we can both live vicariously through other people's haul photos. 🙂 

Re: Love for Brushes

@WinglessOne  and @SportyGirly125  -- Its tots adorbs but I know I'd only keep it in the box safely in a plastic tub hidden from sight so I don't break it... but a real case of the "I wanna" reared it's head today. 

Re: Love for Brushes

Now available at Beautylish.

Re: Love for Brushes

@Seymore3 Oh my!  This brush is beautiful.  I need to log-off of Sephora so I won't be tempted by BIC.  

RE: Love for Brushes

This looks great!
