This brush is an excellent multipurpose face brush. I’ve used mine for powder foundation, blush, and bronzer. The round shape just makes it so easy to blend coloured products as well as pouncing on and buffing in powder base products. Also excellent for cream products as it is undyed hair. I’ve washed mine a few times now and have experienced hardly any shedding. The hair is a nice soft saikoho and the head is as round as a 37mm eyeshadow pan so it fits nicely into the majority of your face product pans. I think the high point of this series is actually the natural wood handle and the matte black ferrule, it looks so beautiful with the etched in Yoshiki. As with most Koyudo brushes the handle length is on the shorter side, I prefer medium to long length handles but make an exception for Fude.
