SEPHORA HAKUHO-DO BRUSH COLLECTION

I'm finally getting around to posting this mega brush review for the Sephora + Hakuhodo Limited Edition Artisan Brush Collection, purchased this past August. Yes, they are expensive but I used gift cards to offset the cost along with a 20% off bonus from Sephora, in the hopes of enticing me to renew my Rouge status for 2016. The birthday splurge worked out well considering the money I saved from not having to pay the full retail price. I purchased the entire set except for one small eye liner brush because I have a few of those and don't really use them that often. Ever since NARS created the Kabuki collection, I wanted several Japanese inspired brushes. NARS is not cruelty-free (or rather the parent company is not) so I didn't buy them at the time. However, my friend from Asia surprised me with the kabuki lip pots from the set as a birthday gift a couple of years back. While I believe the price points are slightly high here, they cost considerably less than other designer brands and the quality is nice considering they are hand-crafted. Have you purchased any? Stay Beautiful! XOXO

The brush shapes were chosen for their precision, control, and ability to function as multitaskers. They are shaped specifically to sculpt and define the face and body by allowing for fewer, smoother strokes. They provide the freedom to use bolder strokes while distributing product evenly for a flawless finish. This line of brushes is the result of the first ever collaboration between a beauty company and traditional Hakuho-do craftsmen. Each of these brushes benefits from the expertise of the Sephora Pro team and is handmade by highly skilled craftsmen in Japan using the traditional, 200-year-old manufacturing technique. This ensures the highest quality design, materials, and assembly for astounding results.





 Ougi: A revolutionary large pointed powder brush created through a collaboration between the Sephora Pro team and traditional Japanese craftsmen.This beautiful multitasking brush can be used to apply powder, contour, or bronzer. The innovative synthetic bristle material is the first to benefit from exclusive technology that creates a softer, fluffier feel with actual bounce while retaining the benefits of synthetic bristles. As a result, brushes are soft as cashmere, yet deposit more product onto the face due to less absorption and are more hygienic than natural hair. $40

Opinion: I'm adding my opinion for the entire set in this paragraph since it's a really big post. This will apply to all of the brushes. The bristles are silky soft but not over fluffy, yet they are not dense. The large teardrop and the large wedge slope brush have a slightly more dense feeling in the bristles but they're all super soft. I find that they all work wonderfully well with different formula's but work best with with cream and liquid make-up. The brushes are perfect for applying fine finishing powder, for powdered compact make-up, not so much. They really pick up a lot of pigments so that's an added plus. The handles are constructed of wood and quite sturdy but I feel the etched-on logo might smear off with repeated use. I'll have to do the clear nail polish trick in order to protect the Hakuhodo name. Each brush comes in it's own cardboard container and a small leaflet that tells you what it's used for. They really are a work of art. All in all, Sephora and Hakuhodo did a fabulous job creating this luxury collection. I think they could have lowered the price some more but since they are hand-crafted, they are worth it.
