Kumanofude (熊野筆)

Kumanofude (熊野筆) is definitely the best brush in Japan. Kumanofude is not a brand name but a type of brushes produced in a specific area. It was born in Hiroshima-prefecture in Japan, and it’s been beloved since 1,800s. It’s made of natural hair of animals, and the touch of the brushes is amazing.

The package deal is recommended because purchasing it is cheaper than buying a blush one by one. The package deal of the picture above is a set of 8 brushes for:

– powder foundations and finishing powders
– blush
– eyeshadow
– eyebrow
– eyeliner
– mascara
– lipstick, and
– eyebrow (comb and setting brush).

This is the greatest deal comparing with the other Kumanofude package deal. This set is reasonable because one Kumanofude is more than 2,000 yen when purchasing it alone. There are many product reviews which say it is a good price for the value and that the quality is perfect.

If you wanna try Japanese traditional brush, there is not other option! You should try Kumanofude.

ADDICTION “Eyebrow Brush”

ADDICTION’s eyebrow brush is very popular in spite of its price. This brush is relatively big, and the hair is relatively hard. It might be difficult to use until getting used to it, but once you figure out how to use it, you will see it is very easy to use and won’t be able to use other eyebrow brushes.

This brush makes it possible to draw eyebrow at one time, and the big brush head makes it easy to draw eyebrows. This brush is suitable especially for drawing sharp eyebrows.

I actually have this foundation brush. I am using this brush when putting on ETVOS’s powdery foundation, and I love it!

The brush is not that soft because of high density of the hair, but the touch is very nice though this is made of artificial hair. This brush is very easy to use and this makes it possible to put foundation on face uniformly. Considering the super high quality, the price (2,000 yen) is too low! This brush is worth more than 5,000 yen.

This can be used for finishing/setting powder and blush as well as foundation.

This brush is high-priced because this is made by designated artisans who make Kumanofude as well. Since this is made of artificial hair, this is not a Kumanofude, but the technology of Kumanofude is reflected in this brush.

As the head of the brush is curved, powder will be spread evenly on face. There are many product reviews which say the length, weight, softness and density of hair is perfect. Also, it has a pleasant feel, so you will get excited every time you use it.
