Sonia G – August 2020 restock

by Sonia G.

It was challenging to smoothly continue the manufacturing during these past months and so difficult to estimate the readiness of each project or restock.
You are always so kind and patient and I do thank you very much on behalf of everyone involved!

I wanted to share what is included in the upcoming restock, specially since it’s only partial, maybe there is something in particular you were considering or waiting for! These brushes will be available on August 25th at 10 AM PT on Beautylish!

In this restock, we will have:

  • The Walnut Brush Holder
  • The Fundamental Set
  • The Sky eye set (and individuals)
  • Smudger Two
  • Builder One
  • Builder Two
  • Worker One
  • Sculpt One
  • Sculpt Two
  • Sculpt Four
  • Face Two
  • Flat Definer
  • Mini Booster
  • Soft Shader
  • Classic Crease
  • Jumbo Blender


We have the Fundamental Set finally back, it comes with an updated version of the previous “Base One”. For the moment, this Base One is only available in this set but it will also be available individually as soon as possible.

The previous Base One was created to cover as many “base” type of tasks as possible. That previous bristle combination, hakutotsuho goat and PBT synthetic, felt quite firm at the top, this was to give it more strength and work with thicker foundations or more stubborn cream products.

The new Base One looks quite similar but has been redesigned and bundled with different bristles.

Actually, foundation brushes are the most difficult brushes to create, our skin, our products, the coverage we expect to obtain and the speed or precision we need, are unique to each and everyone of us, it’s tricky to find a foundation brush that fits us all in an equal manner.

As an OEM, we have to work with what the manufacture can obtain or has in stock, often we cannot just “chose” whatever bristles we have in mind, or create whatever shape or mix we envision. We have to work with the bristles and techniques they have. They are excellent, but some technical or logistics limitations do exist.

Ideally, I would love to split the “base” functionality into two different brushes so that they better fit their purpose. The first brush would provide a more sheer application of foundation and be more appropriate to work with cream blush/bronzer/sculpting, and it is this Base One. The second brush would deliver medium to high coverage with foundation, and this brush will actually come.

This new Base One is now bundled with sokoho goat and nylon. It feels softer, more flexible and has more movement at the surface compared to the previous version. Both the natural and the synthetic bristles on this brush are much finer, it will be extremely gentle on sensitive skin and will not emphasize dry patches.
The fine bristles are still nicely dense, which helps a lot with the blending, this mix and density will allow you to control the intensity and then blend smoothly without moving or altering the layers underneath.

The technique to use with this brush depends on what products you are applying and what area you wish to work on. I like to use it with short strokes, stippling and moving the stroke in the direction I wish to blend.

Versus the old Base one, this newer version is just a bit smaller in diameter but has very slightly longer bristles. The core of the brush is bundled with slightly shorter sokoho goat bristles and the longer bristles are nylon.

Nylon bristles do not tend to stick as much together, compared to other synthetic fibers, for example PBT, so it will continue to perform even when it’s reused “dirty”. These brushes that we use with cream products still need to be washed more frequently, versus brushes that we use with powder products, but the “fluffiness” is preserved for longer.
My advice is to remove the excess product of any type of brush gently on a towel after you have used it, this will help to extend its life span.

The measurements of the new Base One:

  • Total Length: 162 mm
  • Hair Length: 22 mm
  • Ferrule Width: 20 mm
  • Hair Type: Sokoho Goat Hair & Nylon


In the near future, but not in this restock, there is a little new brush coming, it is likely to happen in September but I will share more details about it as soon as I can, I sincerely hope you’ll love it as much as I do!

Then I believe that the Detail Pro, Cheek Pro and Fan Pro shouldn’t be too far from restock… we will get there! Beyond that, it’s still pretty unclear what comes when, so let’s see how it goes further down the line during this quite spectacular scary year.

I hope you are all doing well, that you can find a way to stay happy and that your family and loved ones are well and nearby, this helps a lot.
I am looking forward to better days and to travelling again, I miss Japan and I miss my family so let’s stay safe and hope for a better second half of the year!

Hi Sonia,
What great news to know that all these brushes will be available today. I am looking forward to testing the new Base One
But I’m sorry there isn’t a restock for Face One. Do you have any idea when it might be available again?

Greetings from Spain!

Sonia G. 28 August, 2020 - 4:23 pm

Hi Goro,
Thank you 🙂
The Face One is taking very long because of the bristles, it should come back around November if all goes as planned, so I hope it’s ok and we can at least keep that timeline!
But, actually please stay tuned because next month there is something coming that you need to have a look if you like Face One’s design! don’t know when it will happen but should be September.

I hope you are ok, my family is in Spain and they are so looking forward to a more normal routine…
Hugs and love from Switzerland!

Hi Sonia Any news about Master face restock? Tomorrow it’s my birthday and I wanted so bad to gift it to myself

Greetings from Georgia (the country)!

Sonia G. 11 September, 2020 - 8:41 pm

Hi Natia,
First of all, happy belated birthday!! I am so sorry that it was not in stock when you wanted it, this brush is amongst the ones that are difficult to restock so it will take a while… I don’t even know when it will come. I am so sorry!! I am doing all I can to bring it back!
lots of love!!

Karina 28 August, 2020 - 9:24 pm

Hi Sonia, first of all thank you very much for beautiful brushes, I have many and they are perfection. A quick question: is Face Pro going to be restocked any time soon? any hope for this year?

Sonia G. 11 September, 2020 - 8:40 pm

Hi Karina,

No hopes for this year unfortunately, it’s very unlikely I am afraid, will see but for now I cannot confirm at all, I don’t know.
So sorry !!!

Monique 15 September, 2020 - 9:05 pm

Hey Sonia! I just started dipping my toe into luxury brushes and wow I can really see the difference. I am really enjoying your brushes! I’m wanting to get the soft cheek and the classic cheek. Any hope they’ll be in stock soon?

Love from California!

Sonia G. 16 September, 2020 - 8:41 pm

Hi Monique,

So, Soft Cheek probably before the end of the year, Classic Cheek probably mid November if all goes as planned, difficult to say at this stage though. Thank you for your patience and for asking, I hope you will enjoy your new brushes 🙂 sending you love from Switzerland!!

Monique 20 September, 2020 - 7:00 am

Awesome! Thank you so much for the update. I can’t wait! I am definitely enjoying the brushes, I can tell the difference in the great quality you’ve put into these. Keep up the amazing work! Xoxo

Hi Sonia,
I really enjoy using your brushes and would love to purchase the Base One. Will it be available individually any time soon?
Also thinking about ordering Face One since I LOVE the Smooth Buffer – is there any chance of a restock?
Thanks for creating these awesome brushes!

Hello Martina,

Hopefully Face One will arrive December/January, let’s see if things continue smoothly!
Base One I really don’t know… I am trying to work it out!

Thank you for being so amazing and supportive, I very very much appreciate it!!
I am trying to see when the next restocks are planned and will inform as soon as they are confirmed!!

Hi Sonia, I have been watching so many reviews of your brushes and really want to try the pro eye and pro face set! Do you have any idea when they will be restocked? Greetings from the Netherlands 🙂

Dear Sonia,
I’m a very late bloomer but I started 2021 waiting for my Sonia creations to arrive. I should be receiving them this week and I hope to wake up every morning for work with a smile as I look forward to use them before facing all the madness in school. That’s how my 2021 would be! I can’t wait for the fluffy Master face, Face Pro and Inochige to be back in stock.. thank you for being a part of my new beginning this year!

Sonia G. 14 January, 2021 - 1:46 pm

Thank you Nor Isa, how nice of you!! I hope you are having fun with them! I wish you a wonderful and joyful New Year! Stay safe sweetie!!
