KOYUDO – White Kinoko & Case
I have already talked about this brush soooo many times but I recently had the possibility to use some points that were going to expire on the CDJapan website so I ordered a second White Mushroom. Because what is better than a Koyudo White Mushroom ? TWO This brush is one of my favorite brushes ever, dense but very soft goat hair, it’s one of these things where you (I) never want to run out of or be without.
They have a special offer at this moment with a little zippered case to store it so I thought why not show it to you in case you are interested ? (I am not getting paid if you do… so just saying…) The offer is limited so if you were considering getting it, maybe it’s the right time! It’s a cute little bag, I am a bit scared to catch the hairs but that didn’t happen at all so maybe I am being too dramatic Here is the link for more details. The case size is: 80x50x50 (mm), it’s not very tall and you can just fit one Kinoko, it’s plastic with pearlescent beige pink coating.
The Kinoko is very large, you can see the exact dimensions on the CDJapan page I linked above, I use it with powder, bronzer or anything that doesn’t need precision, the coverage is buildable but keep in mind that the bristles here are very soft, if you need a very polished effect, you better go with rougher bristles. It’s goat hair but consider it like squirrel hair since it’s extremely soft.
I will also teach you a few words while I am here, easy ones, mushroom=kinoko, tomato = tomato, so if you are lost in Japan and very hungry, at least you will be eating, mushrooms and tomatos!!!
I spent nearly two days without food when I arrived there last year, no easy at all, that won’t happen again, look at me learning essential food stuff!!! I’ll be prepared
What could I do with two white mushrooms ? sooo many things! Ohhhhhhh!
The one I just received is not washed yet that’s why it’s more thin in the pics but it is similar softness and shape, very similar bundling and I also wanted to check that the shape and quality was maintained after my very first Mushroom a long time ago….
If you have it already or any other kinoko, you can create a protective little guard with just some microfiber cloth and some stitches. I can show you mine but I am not professional so my work is not mind blowing to say the least. But you get the idea!
You can simply saw a little tube to slide the kinoko inside, but then remove it from one side so that you don’t push and force the hair the wrong way out
And since it’s microfiber, you can use it to clean it and then you can wash it with your regular washing My new motto is “When it doesn’t exist, create it!”
