If you are a brush fan, you MUST have at least one hakuhodo brush.
- beauty on the way
We started to collect Hakuho-do brushes since 2009..We ordered the first batch from Hakuho-do's Japan official website, and received them 2 weeks later.
Before we placed order, the price almost stopped us, but we were so attracted by the gorgeous vermilion handles and decided to go for some popular ones. After we received them, then we know what we are paying for, the brushes are absolutely stunning! The workmanship is brilliant in terms of the quality of the brush hair, the color and painting of the handle, as well as the 24K gold coated ferrule.
Great news: you can order brushes from its US website, which provides flat international shipping.
The S-series brushes are made of natural hair which is very soft but dense and firm, such that they can get the appropriate amount of powder and distribute the products evenly. The handle is made of wood and colored in beautiful vermilion, a traditional Japanese color.
Price: US$ 72

It's one of the best seller of Hakuhodo brushes and also the first choice if you just start to collect Hakuhodo brushes.
You can use the brush for powdering, contouring and finishing. I mainly use it for loose powder. It's very very soft, and feels like ' the wind is kissing ur face....'
Price: US$ 105
Hair Type ：Blue Squirrel
The code of the brush is 105 and the price is also 105. :D
It's a powder brush, which is even softer than S100. But I prefer S100 to S105 because S105 is little bit small for the whole face.
Price: US$ 46
Hair Type ：Goat(Sokoho)
Oh, S110... After I got my S110, I laid aside my M.A.C blush brushes....
It's just perfect for highly pigmented NARS blushers.
Price: US$ 38
Hair Type ：Goat (Sokoho)
It's a highlight brush, which is similar to the limited edition of M.A.C #165. I like S113 more than #165 because it's made of smoother & firm bristles.
Price: US$ 32
Hair Type ：Tamage
(hmmm.... What is Tamage???)
S134 is one of my favorite eyeshadow brushes, which has the similar shape of M.A.C #239. It's a little bit pricky for #239, while S134 is much softer. If you only wanna get one eyeshadow brush, then just go for S134. You'll never regret getting it.
Price: US$ 27
Hair Type ： Blue Squirrel
S142 is a blending brush, which is used to blend the harsh edges of your eyeshadow evenly and smoothly. The shape is similar to M.A.C #222 and #224, but #224 is more fluffy.
Price: US$ 60
Hair Type ：Blue Squirrel/Goat
The lovely small fan brush is for loose powders too. It is perfect to put into your makeup pouch, and it is as soft as other Hakuho-do brushes :D
