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

I was so excited to see they re-listed the Hakuho-do concealer brush online and can't wait until it gets here. Of course, that has to be the package that got sent to the wrong place so I was watching the tracking periodically and was thrilled when it was supposed to be here yesterday...until it showed "scanned in at ___ time in Eureka" when I expected to see "out for delivery." Trying to be patient, and I know it will have to get here eventually but still...grrr.

Re: Love for Brushes

@AMK721 - What brush is that with the purple handle in the photo you put in the original post? I can never seem to find the brush I need to replace and in the color I want at any given time (and the color I want could vary depending on my mood, lol) but purple always seems to be the most elusive.

Re: Love for Brushes

@WaterlilyKari  @Mochapj is right.  That is the brush from my UD Vice 2 palette.  Purple is a hard color to find in a brush.  I think Real Techniques have brushes in different colors.  They are color coded to the type of brush they are and I think their eye brushes are purple so you might want to check them out Smiley Happy

Re: Love for Brushes

Thanks! I can see that now that I am looking again from my computer but on my phone previously it wouldn't let me zoom in enough to tell.

 

I will try to check out the Real Techniques brushes the next time I am in a store that carries them. Thanks!

Re: Love for Brushes

The purple brush says UD vice 2 on it Smiley Wink

Re: Love for Brushes

They Fuwa Fuwa powder brush is divine! Do you know where in the US I can feel it first hand? Smiley Surprised 

Re: Love for Brushes

Thanks Cahlee and Mochapj! Will definitely be following this thread! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Love for Brushes

Did ya'll get yours online? Would you recommend it? How versatile is it? It looks beautiful <3 _ <3 

Re: Love for Brushes

@Sonny4President I also got mine from Cdjapan. It is a gorgeous brush. There are no other brush handles (that I know of) that look similar. It is both functional and a piece for collectors. It is great for powder products so you can use it with powder foundation, or to lay down bronzer or blend out heavy handed blush. I have also read some people use it for cream products but have not tried so myself. If you are really interested in the brush Cdjapan may or may not have another sale coming up. They had a 20% sale on all Koyudo last fall. Considering it's a little over $100 US it's a good amount saved. However, I cannot say for sure if they will have the sale again this year. I would definitely recommend it, but I will say it may not be the most necessary brush for the average brush user. 

Re: Love for Brushes

@Sonny4President I got mine online from CDJapan.

 

I've only had it a few days so I haven't formed an opinion yet, but perhaps Cahlee would have some feedback.

Re: Love for Brushes

@Sonny4President I'm sorry, I don't (as I'm in Canada) but perhaps @Cahlee might?

Re: Love for Brushes

Unfortunately I do not know of any places in the US where you can see brushes from the brand Koyudo (fuwafuwa included) Sorry Smiley Sad

Re: Love for Brushes

They're all beautiful! The black handle on the Canadian squirrel brush is gorgeous. 

Re: Love for Brushes

Hey @Mochapj, any favorites for lightweight liquid foundations? 

Re: Love for Brushes

Also jumping in, the Rae Morris Radiance 27 (have not tried the new 26 version) is my absolute favourite for liquid foundation.  The Koyudo fu-pa02 is a close 2nd.  Third is the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.

 

RM had 15-20% sales discounts at least twice in the past year and a half so sign up for alerts.  CDJapan usually has 20% off Koyudo sometime in the fall.  They have free shipping on brush purchases over 12,000 yen right now.

Re: Love for Brushes

Thanks for the suggestions @comfyrock! I hadn't heard of that line before, is that Rae from Rae Reviews? If so, I really like her - her reviews are really honest and and helpful. When I saw your post, I immediately thought about how surprising it is that her name isn't attached to more products.

 

Off to google! 

 

edit: It's not Rae from Rae Reviews... but this other Rae seems to know what she's talking about too, lol. Back to googling! 

Re: Love for Brushes

@etscore1, you're welcome Smiley Happy  During your Google travels, you may encounter the BECCA brush that looks like a dupe of the Rae Morris Radiance 27.  Don't be fooled; it does not perform as well.  The RM 27 is available on Beautylish and on her site.  Since it's an Australian company, please check the currency in which prices are posted on her site.

Re: Love for Brushes

Totally off topic @etscore1 is that Ms. Kimberly Clark as your avatar?

 

I recently found her on YT and I'm totally smitten with her.  Just so genuine and sweet.

Re: Love for Brushes

@newandaddicted It is! If you haven't seen @meganlisa's thread, she brought Kimberly Clark to the attention of BT and I totally fell in love with her. She's a little reminder to everyone that, in her words:

YOU DON'T NEED IT. 

 

Smiley Very Happy

@etscore1,Sorry to bud in but Koyudo fupa3 (I think) is my all time favorite for liquid foundation. It is as similar as the Shiseido one but the head is double. I buy this from CDjapan for less than $40. I think they offer free shipping right now.
