Koyudo has released this beautiful set for Christmas 2012, just a quick post for you to see it a little bit more in detail in case you are interested before it’s too late !
It comes in a pink cardboard box, contains 3 brushes and a black pouch.
I like this little black pouch, on the left there are 3 big separate compartments and on the right just one that is same width as the pouch – let’s say…. for a Rae Morris Radiance for example 🙂 or a palette.
The elastic bands are not stitched to the pouch so you could slide some more little brushes underneath.
The face brushes are :
|Base of the ferrule||Hair length|
|Foundation & shading brush||3cm||2.6cm|
|Liquid & Cheek Brush||2.3cm||2.5cm|
Foundation & shading brush
I thought the foundation brush was the same as their Fu-Pa02 but it’s definitely not.
The shape is different, flatter, slightly thinner and it’s also a little bit less dense, same softness though.
I have tried it this morning for the first time and it worked like magic. I even prefer it to the Fu-Pa02, the only critic I had about the Fu-Pa02 is that it’s sometimes too densely packed depending on the foundations, but this new one, let’s call it “the Christmas Fu-Pa” is just the perfect density and the perfect size for me.
The Fu-Pa02 is the bright pink, the Christmas Fu-Pa is the light pink, there are pictures before the wash and after the wash, the shape after the wash is fluffier :
Liquid and cheek brush
The other big face brush, the liquid and cheek brush, was really what made me want to buy this set. I use the Tom Ford shade and illuminate cream contour every day and I did not like the Tom Ford brush for that application, I was looking for a thicker brush.
I found the perfect combination with this brush, I can apply the contour precisely enough (even draw a straight line application) and blend flawlessly. I don’t need to use another brush afterwards. It’s very soft, flexible but firm enough to pick and apply thicker cream products.
The shape after the wash hasn’t really changed.
There is also a lip brush in the set, I haven’t tried it yet but I think that these two brushes are already a good reason for you to get this set 🙂
