Before my official Koyudo review, please let me introduce you to the Koyudo Fu-Pa family and the Koyudo White Mushroom… just a few pictures to prepare you to the upcoming review.
The final review will be uploaded shortly, a few sweet followers will also send me their Koyudo pictures and their comments and I will attach all the info in the same post, I thought it could be different and very useful to have several experiences shared in the same review.
In the meantime, let me show you some pictures and just tell you that if you are looking for a brush that has this kind of shape, I totally and highly recommend you these Koyudo.
The Fu-Pa family
- DEKA Fu-Pa : I believe it’s also baby goat chest hair, to be confirmed
- Fu-Pa 01 : baby goat chest hair, meant for blush or powder foundation
- Fu-Pa 02 : baby goat chest hair, meant for cream / liquid foundation
- Fu-Pa 03 : Polybutylene Terephthalate, mineral foundation
They also have some of them with the pink handles, I could not resist these pink handles, so cute and since I wanted a second Fu-Pa 02 I thought it could be interesting to have both versions.
Compared to the Shiseido, it’s of course much bigger but the material seems exactly the same.
The DEKA Fu-Pa is just a bigger version of the Fu-Pa 01 :
Compared to the Shu Uemura and the Tom Ford, the Fu-Pa 02 is much bigger and denser :
They are totally worth the price, incredible soft and beautiful brushes, perfectly well made. These are so different from any other brushes in the market, the handles are thicker and shorter and the hair are extremely densely packed. Absolute zero quality issues.
Now, last but not least, the White Mushroom…
Not even in your wildest brush dreams could you wish of a softer brush, the ultimate powder brush … nothing else.
It is meant for powder foundation or to brush off excess powder. Made of baby goat chest hair, the handle is cherry tree.
I will use this White Mushroom for powder, for hightlighter for an all-over type of glow and also for bronzer. I will also use this brush as a stress ball… touching this brush feels better than Heaven…
I wonder how it will look once washed, this is a picture before the wash :
Update : this is a picture of the White Mushroom being washed, you can see that the hair is densely packed at the base
The big question is …. is it softer than the Tom Ford bronzer ? …..YES.
I wonder how this can even be possible… but it is.
I haven’t washed it yet, I haven’t tried it yet, but I can tell that this is going to be in my very top favorite brushes. Costs around 130$. Worth the price, worth the wait.
I will upload the final review in the following days but I needed to show you these pictures today and tell the world that this White Mushroom is a unicorn.
Update August 26th, 2012
Just adding a few pictures of the packaging, this is how they came, and they were also bubble-wrapped twice :
