This is probably one of the biggest brush temptations I could show you before my trip to Japan, I hope I will be able to find unique little brushes to bring with me !
Today my review will be brief and I am not going to talk for hours because the pictures speak for themselves, I just simply think that if you love beautiful make up brushes, you need this one.
This Koyudo Pink fan has been sitting in my shopping cart for ages, it was one of the first Koyudo brushes that captured my attention but for some silly reason I was always removing it from my cart before I placed my orders. This time I decided to order it together with the Fu-Pa14. This fan costs 4500 JPY, it is worth every penny, made with baby goat chest hair, yes it’s soft, not as soft as the Koyudo White Mushroom, but it comes very close to the Tom Ford brushes.
I can’t even believe that I was so excited to wake up this morning so that I could use it ! We need enthousiasm in our lives right ? Funny to believe that this brush helps me to get out of bed in the morning 😀
That’s how crazy I am …
It is much wider than any other fan brush, which makes it a gorgeous multipurpose for bronzer, powder, blush, anything really, even contour when you are going for a more wider and seamless contour.
It will not get better than this, of course it depends what you are looking for, maybe you are not tempted at all by fan style brushes, but you will get something extremely beautiful and useful with this one, the whole package.
I have a few of them, the Louise Young is just for decoration purposes because it sheds too much and today it’s too rough for my delicate skin, it’s probably goat hair actually. I don’t use it anymore but I wish I could find a very similar one so I keep it for future investigation and research…
The Rae Morris is squirrel, it’s very thin so it’s ok for contour or highlighter or finishing but you are not getting the fluffyness that the Koyudo has, they are two completely different brushes. The Hakuhodo is made with blue squirrel hair and Sokoho goat (60$), it’s softer than the Koyudo but again, it’s a total different brush.
Since the Koyudo H013 is so wide, it applies powder very seamlessly, unlike many other fan brushes this one is flatter at the surface.
Similar size than the Hakuhodo :
Both brushes are very soft, the Hakuhodo feels softer and is more directional, firmer but I get more use with the Koyudo.
A big difference in the surface it covers :
You may already have the Rae Morris Radiance so I will show you a few pictures to compare the size of both together :
The Koyudo fan’s surface is rounded in the sides and in the corners, so the surface that will touch your skin is in fact not bigger than the Rae Morris but since it’s more spread out and flexible, once you put enough pressure on the skin to apply your product it will cover more surface than the Rae Morris and there will be no lines to the application. It’s too fluffly to use cream with it in my opinion but I will use any kind of powder with it.
It comes in a little cardboard box, with a little velvet pouch, it’s cute but I have problems taking it out so I won’t necessarily use it, I have other little pouches that close completely and that allow a more easy access.
I washed it, it did shed a few hairs but it stopped, absolutely no dye transfer.
I do recommend you this little gem, I am simply in love !!
Tempted anyone ? 😉
