This seductively beautiful brush is made from high-quality squirrel hair, making it supremely soft on the skin. It’s ideal for both loose and pressed-style powders and is a wonderful brush for base coats, blending touches, and finishing powders. The full and densely packed bristles mean it can pick up powder and apply it evenly across the face for a polished look every time.

First Time Purchase

I love this brush! It’s very soft and gives a beautiful defused amount of color (if applying blush) or powder. The craftsmanship of this brush is phenomenal!

Beautiful brush

The brush is exactly what I was expecting. It’s super soft and applies product really naturally. I also liked the customer service from this site. My order was delayed pretty significantly due to the pandemic but Mana in customer service was great about updating me on the delays. I plan on purchasing from here again in the future.

Very soft and beautiful brush

This brush is beautiful, from the ladquered handle to the bristle shape, and it's a pleasure to use. I've recently upgraded my whole brush collection (from Zoeva and Makeup Geek) and I can see why Japanese brushes are so loved - the quality is there! This brush in particular is soft and ideal to apply setting powder. It has the right size to apply powder in all the face, except in the under eye area. For that purpose I use a smaller brush (Chikuhodo FO5).
