Chikuhodo Z-1 Powder Brush, Z Series
Chikuhodo Z-1 Powder Brush, Z Series
This is the holy grail of powder brushes. It’s lightweight, fits in your hand like it was custom-designed just for you, and hits that sweet spot of price, performance and quality. The fact that it’s incredibly soft, but bristles are packed closely together, means you can use it for powder, bronzer, blush, even highlighting and contouring. The softness means a diffused look with bronzer, but the denseness means a precise application if you’re using it for blush. It works great with meteorite pearls as well as powder. 

Z Series

The Z Series represents Tesshyu's tireless pursuit to create the most effortless and flawless makeup application experience yet.

Great for precise powder application

I have this and the z9. This is more narrow. This z1 is perfect for softly and precisely applying setting powder. Love love LOVE Fude Beauty!

My experience with the Chikuhodo Z-1

I bought the brush because of the raving reviews I was reading. So after I purchased more high quality brushes I was more and more curious how this one would perform. After purchasing and patiently waiting till the brush arrived home in Germany I appreciated from the first view how this brush was made. I loove to see quality and of course feel as well. Ih gosh it was really like an aha experience. So this is really one of the absolute top brushes. Very soft but sturdy enough. Used with powders of all kinds. Won’t disturb the foundation!!! I’m in love and plan to visit Japan and of course will visit the fude making region as well.

I absolutely love this brush for finishing powder. I use the Guerlain Meteorites and the brush fits perfectly. It doesn’t over apply powder. It just melts my makeup in seamlessly. The softness is amazing.

Making Finishing Powder Applied Effortlessly; Delivery Packaging Terrible

Pros: This Z-1 is a game changer! It swipes on your face like breeze; yet it applies my finishing powder with just a few strokes. Today, I use it for the first time and, hours later, have found my makeup remains fresher and natural comparing with when using other brushes. I love that this brush not only is perfect size for daily usage, it is compact enough for traveling. Cons: This is my first time ordering from Fude Beauty. The shipping packaging is one of the very worst I’ve ever received. The parcel arrived as a plastic bag with a crushed flimsy box inside containing all the nine brushes scattering around. The two from Koyudo, neatly packed inside their own individual boxes, were both in perfect condition. However, all the Chikuhodo brushes, which were loosely tangled with bubble wrap, kinda scattering “inside” the crushed box. I was so disappointed that expensive artisanal brushes as such would not had been better protected. :( I still give this brush a five stars for its performance. And, I think I’ll still buy from Fude Beauty again, hoping that the packaging will be improved.
