Home Brushes The Lotus Set

The Lotus Set

by Sonia G.

I love reading your messages and they made me want to do something really special, joyful and uplifting. Hopefully, we may soon be able to enjoy and celebrate together a kind of new beginning after this pandemic!

I was also wondering how these changes around us would affect our relationship with make-up, how our make-up routines would evolve, what trends would be around, or if we would still enjoy wearing any make-up at all!

I think that most of us will always enjoy make-up, whether it is a one-shadow look, or a more detailed and bold, or even an editorial type of look, because maybe we will be even more eager to play and create! I wanted this set to allow us to do exactly that: stay simple or go bold. The brushes in this set deliver a fun experience whatever your intentions!

THE HANDLES

The strength and courage required in these times -and the wishful thoughts of a powerful rebirth- triggered the theme for these handles:
the lotus flower.  

I really wanted to work with purple for this set as I received many comments requesting this color. Together with the artisans, we made it dominant in a gradation that looks more organic and grainier, more similar to what we see on flowers.

The handle starts with an intense dark burgundy sprinkled with subtle golden sparkles at the bottom, it shifts to purple, then to sakura pink and ends with pure white at the very top of the handle where it connects to the ferrule.

THE FERRULES

The ferrules are coated with a purple cassis color instead of the usual black, this purple color can look different depending on the lighting: even though it may look quite bold in the pictures, it has the ability to blend and isn’t overpowering. These are brass ferrules and brass does not usually come with a colour coating, the colourful ferrules that we usually see on brushes are often made out of aluminium. Brass is a more luxurious and expensive metal and I am happy that thanks to new techniques acquired by the artisans we could play with the aesthetics of this superior metal for this Special Edition set.

It’s nice to keep in mind that we are working at an artisan scale production, where techniques and means are not the same as those available by machines or at a larger scale manufacturing.

THE BRUSHES

For this limited edition set of 6 brushes I wanted to put together a selection of brushes that could handle both simple and more elaborated looks.
The set features:
– 1 brush from the current collection that is unchanged -except for its handle, the Worker
– 3 new brushes, the Base, the Detail and the Soft Definer
– 2 bestsellers that exist in the current permanent collection but that have been redesigned to fit and complete the purpose of this set, the Cheek and the Builder.  

Front and sideways view

These brushes have been handmade in Kumano, they come with the Kumano sticker at the bottom of the packaging. The sticker has several purposes, one of them is to allow us to trace the brush and its batch entirely, with details and dates of manufacturing.

I am going to share the specs and a little description for each brush but please have a look at the comparison section further down in this post. I hope that section is going to give you much more visual information about their size, density and functionality.

For this set, it’s very important that the brushes are washed and dry before their first use because the bristles need to open and reach their intended final position in order to work to their full potential. If you use brush guards, it’s totally fine but you won’t get the splay out required to achieve the versatility that they were designed for.

THE LOTUS BASE

This Base brush is new and was bundled with the same materials as the Fusion series. It feels firmer and denser in comparison to the other brushes in the Fusion series but it’s pleasant to use and doesn’t poke, there is no need to use a lot of pressure when blending as this mix is effective without pressure.

This is the brush for foundation application. It has a fan type of ferrule which makes the brush firm in the center and more flexible towards the edges. The stronger bristles in the center help specially when we need to work and target hollow areas that are a bit more difficult to buff. The shape is linear so it fits and glides around the eyes or the nose easily.

For the application of foundation, the technique will depend on the product you use, this brush is like a paddle type of brush with the benefit that it blends with the dense wide tip. For sculpting for example, it’s fun to apply the product in a linear manner and blend holding the brush towards the bottom of the handle for a lighter movement and less friction with the skin.  

Hair length: 18mm
Total brush length: 163mm
Ferrule: 22mm
Material: sokoho goat, PBT and PTT synthetic bristles
Use for: Foundation, sculpting

THE LOTUS CHEEK

This Cheek brush is an undyed version of the current Cheek Pro in the permanent collection, the shape is similar but it comes with more airiness.

This undyed version opens more and feels less dense -which makes it more versatile when it comes to working with different products that are sheer or more intense.

It is extremely soft, very effective with powders but we can also use it with cream blush and cream contour or bronzer for a beautiful diffused application.

Hair length:  30mm
Total brush length:  165mm
Ferrule: 16*10mm
Material: Saikoho goat
Use for: blush, contour, highlight, bronzer
Use with powders and creams

THE LOTUS DETAIL

This Detail brush is a new brush that was bundled with dyed and undyed saikoho goat bristles, just like the Face Pro. The bristles are meant to splay out -this mix is particularly helpful when we want a brush to bloom to its maximum.

This Detail brush is Face Pro’s baby. It’s very small but it’s still big enough for an application of blush since it splays out so much and I do love smaller brushes for that purpose! The slanted shape allows for more precision if we wish to keep the application on a more structured perimeter. It’s a versatile density that can adapt to many products whether they are soft and powdery or more difficult to pick.

It is on point with the placement of contour, and of course highlight depending on the precision you go for, and it’s effortless to set an application under the eyes or along the center of the face.  

Hair length:  28mm
Total brush length:  173mm
Ferrule: 14*7.5mm
Material: Brown dyed and undyed saikoho goat.
Use for: blush, contour, highlight, powder
Use with powders

THE LOTUS WORKER

This Worker brush is not a new brush, it is similar to the Worker Two currently in my collection. There are several reasons why this brush is included in this set, the first reason is because it is such a multipurpose brush. The thick ferrule, smooth sides and round stable tip allow this brush to be used as a laydown brush, a crease brush and a blender brush.

The other reason why this brush is in this Special Edition Lotus set is because it is indeed a very important brush in the Sonia G journey, one of the most multipurpose yet unique brush in my collection.

It’s bundled with undyed bristles and can be used with any type of product. The bristles are dense enough to diffuse cream shadows or concealer.

Hair length:  15mm
Total brush length:  155mm
Ferrule: 10*7mm
Material: Saikoho goat
Use for: eyeshadow, concealer
Use with powder and cream products

THE LOTUS BUILDER

This Builder is similar to the Builder Three in my current permanent collection but this version is with undyed bristles. It was important to add a strong intuitive builder in the set because if we want to go for bolder looks we need a brush that can build pretty much anything effortlessly, specially when we want to play with shimmers, metallics, and even creams.

This brush has thickness and stability, we can work with the sides and also with the tip of the bristles for definition along the lashline.

Hair length: 10mm
Total brush length: 150mm
Ferrule: 10*5mm
Material: Saikoho goat
Use for: eyeshadow.
Use with any type of eyeshadow formulas, shimmers, mattes, creams and powders

THE LOTUS SOFT DEFINER

This little Soft Definer is a new brush and a key brush in this set. It’s a cross between a pencil brush and a crease brush. It has density and a round tip so it’s directional, but remains stable and flexible.

Strength and discipline for these bristles was important so that we could easily and precisely build the intensity inside the crease and achieve an even placement specially when we need to work with more precision.

It’s important to wash these brushes before their first use, once washed and dry, the bristles will take their final position, move with a different flow and fulfill the purpose of Soft Definer.

Its functionality is very versatile, it can be used in the crease, the outer v, the inner corner of the eye, the lower lashline, the brow bone or to smoke out the application. I even use this brush for a one shadow smokey look on its own.

We can either place the product and blend directly with the same Soft Definer, or we can use it to place the product before the final blend with the Worker.

It’s not necessarily the brush you would think you’ll use on a daily basis; however, I designed this brush a while ago and since I have it, it has been a trusted daily companion that I could not put down, you will see why in the comparison section below.

There is also something that I could mention just in case you have the same issue: when using small crease brushes for a soft definition along the lower lashline, the bristles on typical crease brushes may splay out too much and touch my eye -which bothers me a lot because I have extremely sensitive eyes. This Soft Definer is more disciplined and directional so the bristles won’t splay, they don’t touch my eye and I can work with more control and achieve a safe soft definition.

Hair length:  12mm
Total brush length:  152mm
Ferrule: 5mm
Material: Dyed saikoho goat
Use for: eyeshadow
Use with powder products

COMPARISONS

I will now show you some comparisons to give you a better idea of the size and the functionality, I grouped them per brand hoping that this will make it easier for you to find the information you are looking for. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know in the comments! And if you prefer a different brand, I am here to promote Fude so I am happy either way!

Lotus Set vs Sonia G permanent collection

I kick this off with the brushes that would be close in size or in functionality from my permanent collection.

In terms of shape, the Soft Definer is a baby version of the Blender Pro, it is rounded at the top and very dense. The top half of the brush has flexibility and moves smoothly and predictably, I call this “having discipline”. That’s exactly why this brush does not have undyed bristles. Dyed bristles give fullness and the bristles move more smoothly with less fallout and allow a more even application. For this long pencil type of brush, this does make a difference in how it performs.

The Lotus Worker is the Worker Two, with same specs and same bristles. This is such a versatile brush and if you are starting with my brushes, probably the best brush to start with.
The Lotus Builder is the Builder Three in my current collection but with undyed bristles, you can now safely use this version with creams. It’s the most intuitive Builder, it picks up a generous amount of product with little to no fallout so it’s truly effective with shimmers or metallics.


There is nothing in the permanent collection that is like the Lotus Base brush, the Jumbo Base is bigger and has more flexibility. The Lotus Base is a more linear type of brush that feels denser and offers more precision and strength.

The Lotus Cheek and Cheek Pro have quite similar specs but the Lotus Cheek is more airy while the Cheek Pro is more full and dense so if you want more versatility, the Lotus Cheek is a better candidate.

Sonia G vs Mac

I thought it would be relevant to show you some Mac brushes because many of us have Mac brushes in our collection.

There is a very similar one, the Mac 141S, it’s more dense than the Lotus Base and doesn’t flex much, the ferrules are different but the surface that the bristles cover at the very top is quite similar, the Lotus Base has longer bristles that will flex more.

The Mac 163 is smaller, shorter and it doesn’t move much at all, it’s more a stamp type of brush mostly used for contour.

The Lotus Cheek and the Mac 116 have a similar working surface but the Mac will offer a more directional application, you will cover more surface with the Lotus Cheek since it is flatter at the top.

I wanted to show you also the Mac 168SH, which is angled like the Lotus Detail but the Mac is denser and bigger, in comparison the Lotus Detail will deliver a more gradual or buildable type of application.

The Lotus Worker and the Mac 217 are similar type of brushes, versatile workhorses. The Lotus Worker is denser so the blending is going to be stronger and more polished onto the skin (even though the bristles on the Worker are softer, the density offers a lot of strength). When I use both -one on each eye- I just notice that the application with the Worker builds up more quickly and more evenly, the Mac 217 is more directional and builds the color more gradually.

The Mac 239 is very close in size, but the Lotus Builder is thicker at the base of the ferrule (noticeable in the Side View), this is intentional, I love Builders with a “full body”, this often helps to avoid fall out and gives stability to the tip of the brush.

The Soft Definer is something in between the Mac 219 and the Mac 221 but so much smaller than the Mac 221, two different kind of brushes actually so the Soft Definer is not a replacement for the Mac 221, nor for the Mac 219. The Mac 219 is much firmer and smaller at the tip.

Sonia vs Misc

I found some brushes that may be relevant to show you side by side, just in case you own these.

The Lotus Detail is a very small face brush, but since it splays out beautifully and has a flat surface, there are still many tasks that can be achieved with it.

It’s smaller and more airy than the Chikuhodo G-02 or the Surratt Sculpting, and it’s much bigger than the Smith 104.

The Sephora 53.5 is very similar in functionality to the Lotus Base, the main difference is that the Sephora has more movement and it’s full synthetic.

Sonia G vs Suqqu

The Suqqu brushes are actually quite different but since I always receive questions to compare sizes with Suqqu, that’s why I am adding them here. This time I also wanted to show you the Soft Definer and the Suqqu S because there is something special about these two brushes and the way they perform.

I have reviewed this Suqqu foundation brush in the past, so I used it quite a bit. The Suqqu does a good job and can work pretty fast, and I love that these synthetic bristles have a natural feel to them so that’s fantastic. As I mention on my review, the only thing is that I wished it had more is strength right in the middle because I cannot evenly buff the more difficult hollow areas of my cheeks. This is the reason why I love a linear foundation brush with a fan ferrule, so that the center of the brush can actually go deeper and get those pores buffed more easily.

Here is the mighty Suqqu cheek and how it compares in shape and size to the Lotus Cheek: the Lotus Cheek covers a wider area and since it’s natural goat bristles the polishing power is going to be stronger.
Depending on the angle and the pressure you use, the Lotus Detail -even though it’s a different shape- is going to cover a similar surface at the top but the Lotus Detail will do it more decisively, the application with the Suqqu cheek is more lightweight.

I love small workhorses like the Lotus Cheek and Lotus Detail, specially because I love small palettes like the IPSA or blushes like the Surratt, or Addiction or Three… these formulas that are more satin like and these brushes pair so well with them.
You may have heard about IPSA on my blog already. Their palettes come with 4 little pans (blush-highlighter-setting powder-sculpting/bronzing), you can change the pans or even “convert” a 4 pan into a 6 pan if you remove the little brush. Using the Lotus Cheek and Lotus Detail brushes with these palettes is spot on because they allow me to work with these IPSA super easily: they fit in the pans, they are strong enough to pick up, to buff and they are precise without being too directional.

The Lotus Worker and the Suqqu L are completely different so this pic will just show you how much bigger the Suqqu eyeshadow L brush is!

The Lotus Builder has more thickness and slightly shorter bristles, in terms of application, both are quite similar.

Regarding the Suqqu S, I bought mine in Selfridges before it got discontinued so this was a very long time ago! The re-release of the Suqqu S that we can buy today is not the same size as the original Suqqu S which has a slightly smaller ferrule so here I am talking about the Suqqu S with the smaller ferrule from many years ago.

The reason why I want to show you the Soft Definer next to the Suqqu S -even if they look nothing alike- is because in terms of results, for me these two brushes are quite similar.

I have received so many messages requesting that I create a brush similar to the Suqqu S but I didn’t want to do the same brush and I wanted to use goat bristles, which require that we change specs completely. I know it looks totally different but the purpose is a lot similar. For example, if you apply the lower lashline shadow, the application will result identical. If you work on the outer V and would like to extend that V, I find the Soft Definer more effortless since it is just slightly more flexible, it diffuses more easily. These are two different brushes but if you love the Suqqu S, there are chances that you’ll love the Soft Definer, it’s obviously not the same brush and softness but since the Soft Definer has more flexibility, it remains very soft.


Sonia G vs Wayne Goss

I am showing you some of the Wayne Goss brushes side by side, they are quite different and it’s obvious but you’ll have an idea of their size.

The Wayne Goss 18 is quite similar to the Lotus Worker but more tapered if you look at it sideways and also more fluffy and airy, the Worker is denser.
The Wayne Goss 07 has longer bristles and is thinner.
The wonderful Wayne Goss 20 is a totally different shape, more like a crease brush while the Soft Definer is more like a pencil.

Wayne also has a fan brush that we can use for foundation, it’s much bigger and has lots more movement in the bristles, the Lotus Base is much denser, shorter and is flatter at the top.
The Lotus Cheek is smaller and has a flatter surface in comparison to the Wayne Goss 11.

Sonia G vs Hakuhodo

The Hakuhodo F1521 is a fun fan brush but not much for foundation because it doesn’t offer much control.

The Lotus Cheek is a less dense, flatter and smaller version of the Hakuhodo S110 (or J110 if you have that one with the more basic handle).

You can see that these Hakuhodo G511 brushes are so similar to the Lotus Detail, the main difference is the width specially when you look at the brushes sideways, the way they splay out. I wanted the brush to splay out to the maximum while feeling super soft, that’s why it’s only saikoho goat bristles and why it is a mix of dyed and undyed – this mix is actually breaking the discipline and the bristles will just naturally splay out more.

The Hakuhodo J5523 is very similar in width at the very top, it’s not as flat and densely packed as the Lotus Worker. The thickness and flatness of the Workers in my collection is what makes them very stable and great for laydown and they also double as crease/blender brushes.

I have two Hakuhodo brushes that are close in shape to the Soft Definer, the S145 and the G5534. The S145 is very pointy, if I need to work inside the crease this is ok but if I need to define the lower lashline for example, the flow may be a bit too random in comparison to the Soft Definer and I prefer something a bit more predictable and effortless. The G5534 is amazing, it’s not as strong and stable at the top but it’s a wonderful brush.

AVAILABILITY

This Special Edition set is a combination of new designs and current brushes that have been updated in order to increase their versatility as a team, since these brushes are only available as a set, each brush needs to be a workhorse! These are fun brushes that we can very easily integrate into our daily routines, whether we want to go for soft or for fun bold looks. We need to keep creating and enjoying make-up if that makes us happy- it’s an uplifting and precious moment that I am looking forward to every time and I hope you do too!

I believe that this set is for those who love something special and different, but very functional. If you don’t have any brushes from my collection, it’s a very relevant set to start with as it has amazing elevated basics!

This Limited Edition Lotus set will be available on Beautylish starting on the July 14th at 10am PT for 215 USD. You may also enter your details here if you would like to be notified by Beautylish of their availability.

Just two questions about the Lotus Base. How do you best suggest to use it. Swipe? Buff? And do you find the shorter bristles harder or easier to clean? THANK YOU!!!!!

Reply
Sonia G. 8 July, 2021 - 7:27 pm

Hi Denise! The technique is a combination of swipe, pounce but also buff with the surface, it’s quite intuitive once we start using it. The cleaning is still ok because it’s dense but still moves so we can reach to clean, we just need to be gentle like any other brush ☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️ big hugs sweetie!!

This set is beautiful Sonia! I love that you used the lotus to represent this set since it signifies something beautiful emerging from the darkness. I was one of the unlucky ones who missed out on the fusion brushes and was planning to pick them up with the restock, but now I’m not sure which to choose from I am so grateful that you care for your followers so much though, and that we have these choices to make. I was wondering though, I’ve also been waiting for the face pro to come back in stock… would the lotus detail be a good replacement for the face pro (other than the size difference)?

Reply
Sonia G. 9 July, 2021 - 10:33 pm

Hi Melissa, Thank you so much!! exactly why it’s represented here. This was a sad dark period and I know that it will change us and we will even more appreciate to meet our friends and relatives, to travel, to enjoy our good health…
The Detail is not a replacement in terms of functionality because it’s really small in comparison so it would not cover for its purpose, the Face Pro is still not here and won’t arrive very soon unfortunately but it will! which was uncertain some time ago!
lots of hugs!!

Sylvie 9 July, 2021 - 1:17 am

Hi Sonia,
What does it mean when you say a brush is more “directional”?

Reply
Sonia G. 9 July, 2021 - 10:37 pm

Hi Sylvie, that it works with more precision or that the very center of the brush is firmer so when you use it you mostly only use the very tip, but it depends on the brush. I hope this helps a bit ? please let me know, thank you!!

It would be great if your brushes were also sold in the EU, tax, fees and postage tends to be quite costly when we shop from the US.
I think the brushes looks lovely and hope to be able to grab them and if not I’ll probably buy the permanent builder.
Showing the brushes against so many others was very informative, as was the text.
Thank you!

I was going to order some of your Fusion Series brushes when they are re-stocked but definitely getting this Lotus set, beautiful. Question I was going to order the Jumbo Base but would it do the same job as the Lotus Base? I love this new color so I can easily tell them apart from the red and blue sets.

Thank you

Reply
Sonia G. 11 July, 2021 - 9:45 pm

Hi Bea, thank you!!
these are two completely different brushes, we can apply foundation with both but the Jumbo Base is more versatile, I wanted to do something different and more unique for the Limited Edition set.
So happy you love this bright color! they do stand out, not too much but they certainly do 😀
Thank YOU again!!

Bea 11 July, 2021 - 10:01 pm

Thank you Sonia, I’ll definitely be getting the Lotus set (praying I can get them before they sellout,I have my alarm set) and 3 of the Fusion brushes, the Jumbo base, soft concealer and the mini base. All I need now is a face powder brush, will you be restocking any soon?

Reply
Sonia G. 11 July, 2021 - 10:04 pm

That’s so nice Bea, thank you!
The Face One will be the next to restock, but the others are ongoing, but at least now I know they can be restocked. It was such a painful wait and not knowing if I had to stop them or not, but please kindly wait and I will let you know as soon as I have more details! thank you!!

Anna Beltran 11 July, 2021 - 5:42 am

Hi Sonia!
I couldn’t be more excited for this stunning collection! Question: For the first wash of the brushes before use, can you use a spray brush cleaner like IT Cosmetics Brush Bath Purifying Makeup Brush Cleaner?

Reply
Sonia G. 11 July, 2021 - 9:52 pm

Hi Anna, that’s wonderful! I think this is more like a spot daily cleaning product? I never had the opportunity to try it.
It’s better for the first clean to wash them with lukewarm water and brush soap, rinse them well, remove gently excess water with a towel and leave to dry laying the brushes flat. The water is going to help with their first splay. Then in between washed I use a spray on a towel and very gently wipe the brushes onto the sprayed towel. Please let me know if this answers your question! thank you!

Reply
Bea 11 July, 2021 - 10:04 pm

Sonia what spray do you use for spot cleaning? I currently don’t use one cause I don’t want to damage them.

Reply
Sonia G. 12 July, 2021 - 12:08 am

Hi Bea, I use the beautysoclean brush cleaner spray for spot cleaning but I don’t spray directly on the brush, I spray on the towel and wipe the brush 🙂

Thank you! I was about to ask how you clean the brushes. Do you have an Instagram post about how you wash the brushes? I usually am very heavy handed whilst cleaning my brushes (because it usually is a lot to clean ). I am so thrilled in using this set. Been glaring at them since they arrived. Too pretty to use!

Just used my Lotus set for the first time today and I am IN LOVE with the Base brush. Truly unique, probably my favorite foundation brush ever and I have a LOT. It sounds like production of this brush was pretty intense, but if there is *ever* a way you’d consider releasing an individual version of this, I would buy it in a heartbeat. This set is another resounding success, which is what I’ve come to know and love about your line. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication, you have much to be proud of!

hi!! well that’s amazing to hear, thank you!! I take note, I don’t know if we would be able to bring it back but I will definitely keep an eye on the comments and feedbacks! I am so happy that you love it so much!
I have always loved this kind of brushes, I think it’s because it makes me more creative and take my time which at the end maybe it probably makes me appreciate the results even more.

Thank you so much again, I truly appreciate it!!

Sonia, This set looks beautiful & I have ordered, I am just waiting for them to be delivered. However I already know that they are going to be gorgeous & a great addition to my other Fude Brushes. I hope you will seriously consider bringing these back as either singles or as a Face Set & Eye Set. I need triplicates of my eye brushes- ‘1 in use, 1 on standby & 1 in the wash’ If bringing these brushes back in the configurations I have suggested is impossible will you let me know as I am considering buying 2 more full sets just for the eye brushes & gifting the face brushes to my sister & niece ? Congratulations to you & all the Artisans involved for your constant innovation

Thank you for making this beautiful set! I love the base brush, I used it today with a foundation I’ve had difficulty getting to apply nicely (westman atelier) and this brush made the application flawless. I’m so happy. I’m sure a brush from the fusion set will also work, but they were just washed and still waiting to dry! Thank you for making beautiful, useful tools!

I am new to fude, and discovered your brushes while while searching for new makeup brushes online. I bought your Keyaki series and your Lotus series, and absolutely love them!!! I am not a morning person, but when my husband brings me a cup of tea and I sit down doing my makeup with your soft and beautiful brushes, I cannot help but enjoying the moment 🙂
Please, would you consider making your other brush series in the lotus colours! I would love to have a matching set of pro face and eyes, the fusion series and a spoolie!

I am so so happy that they are back at Beautylish! I ordered the second I received the email saying they returned. Thank you for all the details about these brushes…. can’t wait to use them (after a wash- of course ;)!
