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 totally agree, Hakuhodo, J Series are very reasonably priced. I would jump on them as soon as you can because they are going to have a price increase soon and a lot of them are selling out. 

Re: Love for Brushes

Thanks for the tip! I bought my Hakuhodo brushes years ago from the J line and so the prices seem insane to me already!

Re: Love for Brushes

@MissPuff First off, you are FAR too kind about my skills! I love eyeshadow, but I have basically one shape and two techniques that I wear every single day Smiley Tongue Secondly, thank you for being so detailed! I'm on the Hakuhodo site now and already feeling a little overwhelmed by my options. Why must there be so many? I think I would start with three: flat, crease, fluffy blending. 

 

Side note: I keep staring at the Wayne Goss Eye Set and drooling, but four of the five appear to be the same shape. Does one really need four tapered brushes?

Re: Love for Brushes

@tastelikewater  I have the older WG eye brushes in the brown goat hair that had more of a variation in the shapes. Looking at current brush set, you're totally right, it's like 4 roughly the same sized crease brushes. I don't think there's much savings in a set vs individual for WG, you'd definitely be better buying just the ones you like. My two favorite WG brushes are the 04 (smaller crease) and the 06 (flatter, I use this one for everything). The 06 in particular has turned out to be super versatile, it's flatter, not quite a flat paddle, so fluffy and dense enough to blend, but I can still use it to pick up and pack on color. The newer white eye brushes look a bit fluffier, my experience with the face brushes is that the brown ones were actually a touch stiffer (my preference) than the white versions, wondering if that's true for the eye brushes as well?

 

I wish I could tell you which Hakuhodo brushes I have but I'm at work and I can't remember because it's like a nonsensical number system Smiley Happy I'll check when I get home!

Re: Love for Brushes

@MissPuff  and @tastelikewater UPDATED (found the video) - Wayne recommends his 06 and a *pencil* brush (05) as the two brushes you need to do an eye look. I find pencil brushes hard on my sensitive skin. I prefer the 06 and 19 and used both today.

I bought an extra 6 for traveling as my original is from the 1st Anniv set & is not allowed out. (I like the fluffiness of the 18, too.) Someone asked Wayne what one eye brush would he recommend and he said the 19.

 

 

Re: Love for Brushes

@TraceyEB This is very helpful, thank you! 

Re: Love for Brushes

Hi @tastelikewater I updated the post noting that Wayne uses his 06 and a pencil brush for his two brush look.

Re: Love for Brushes

@TraceyEB I’m actually surprised he would say a pencil brush over a crease brush! Maybe he thinks the 04 can do a good enough job blending? I’ll have to look up the video to find out more. Thanks for the info!

Re: Love for Brushes

@tastelikewaterThe videos where he uses the two brush technique in are "The Biggest Eyeshadow Mistake We All Make" (2 months ago) and "The 90 Second Eyeshadow Tutorial" (6 days ago). Wayne designed brushes similar to the 06 and pencil brush in his new synthetics line. I'm sure he used a 04 for blending in the Pillow Talk tutorial. Smiley Happy

Re: Love for Brushes

@MissPuff Seriously, the numbers make my head spin!

Re: Love for Brushes

Thanks @lipstick4soul ! I’m considering buying a Builder Pro, or waiting for the Builder One to be restocked (again). The Pro version has longer bristles that are tapered, which is a plus for me. But I wonder if it’s as dense as the original Builder. I might have to get both to find out for myself. Smiley Very Happy

RE: Re: Love for Brushes

I’m highly intrigued with these

I just saw the email, and I'm intrigued... slightly skept...

Re: Love for Brushes

Notes on the upcoming Hakuhodo price increase. To clarify, this hasn't been specific to Hakuhodo; a lot of other Japanese fude manufacturers have been increasing their prices these past few months as raw materials are becoming scarcer.

RE: Re: Love for Brushes

@lipstick4soul it’s a beautiful brush. I ordered one from Japan last year and can confidently say the photos beautylish has up do not do the handle justice

RE: Love for Brushes

Does anyone know if the Sonia g pro set will be restocked

RE: Love for Brushes

Ladies I’m hearing late February

Re: RE: Love for Brushes

@KNC24 No estimated date has been posted yet but according to Sonia G Instagram post on 1/6, the pro eye set is still in production and maybe back in stock sometime in Feb 🤷‍♀️. I’m still debating if I should take a chance and pick this set up when it comes back.
