This stunning new powder brush from Chikuhodo is made from 100% ash squirrel bristles, completed with a handle of plum blossoms in Yamanaka-Shikki lacquer work. Compared with some other premium Chikuhodo powder brushes, the bristles are a little shorter, which increases the density so you can enjoy a firm and smooth touch. Because the are very delicate, the brush is recommended for loose powders and lightly pressed powders.

Not only beautiful, it works Amazingly well!

This brush is simply divine. The lacquered handle design is beautiful. I like how the big golden sun enhances and brings out the color of the Plum Blossoms on the branches of the Plum tree and of the sparrows flitting from one branch to another. The black lacquer on the handle makes the entire brush look elegant and luxurious looking. I find it also fitting to use this brush for the season because the plum trees are currently blossoming. The brush it self is well balanced and "sits" very well on my hands when I use it. This is my first full Grey Squirrel powder brush in my collection and I am extremely happy about it. I take my time building coverage when putting on makeup and this brush helps me do that. This brush actually picks up a subtle amount of product and delivers them softly on the skin - creating a very diffused look. I have used this brush with powder (pressed and loose), finishing powders, blushes and bronzers; each laid well on the skin. I like the size of the brush head, it enables me to control where I apply the powder. The brush head is also quite dense, which gives it strength and ability to hold it's shape. The brush arrived in the nick of time and there were no dents on the delivery. The brush itself was placed inside a golden box which added to its luxurious quality.

Not impressed with handle

This is no doubt a very well made brush with exquisite and soft bristles. My main complaint is that I expected more from the handle design. I thought that compared to some of my other dude brushes this looked and felt a little cheap given the price.

Exquisite

Fude Beauty ships from Japan by DHL quickly & tracked. The brush is so pretty. I feel spoiled using it - the design really adds to the pleasure of using it. It is soft and is wonderful to use for both loose & pressed. It also feels nice to buff after my bronzer and blush have been applied so I don’t have stripes. It softens the look. Great purchase. Looking forward to more. Pictures are this brush with the carp and z1

The perfect brush

This was my first Chikuhodo, which I bought as I was telling myself there was no way it was worth it. I stand corrected. The handle is gorgeous but this is so much more than a decorative powder brush. Yes, it applies powder beautifully, but it's also outstanding with pigmented blushes that are usually hard to control - this gives a perfectly diffused wash of color that doesn't need to be buffed out - and it does a beautiful soft contour with bronzer. The tip is curved from the front and beveled from the side, which gives great control. It doesn't fluff out too much after washing. It's really a perfect brush that will make you feel spoiled every time you use it. Try it, you won't be sorry!

it cannot be put into words

This Powder Brush not only looks beautiful, it is as soft as a dream. He applies the powder gently and easily. When I use it, it enchants my make-up experience. It inspires me to apply my make-up with the same dedication that the brush was made.
