I bought this Chikuhodo brush recently, and this brush is the most flexible gray squirrel highting brush that I have come across. If you push it against your face, the hairs will bend a lot and make you feel airy. Moreover, the bundling is near perfect but it doesn't seem to work well with the medium to harder pressed blush and harder pressed powder formula since the hairs are so fine. But It does work really well with soft pressed blushes.
Z-2 Highlight / Chikuhodo Z Series Customer Reviews
The z-series is a must-have for anyone with sensitive skin its so Amazingly soft that there's no way I could possibly go back to using my scratchy mac brushes. The z-2 is a great brush ive only used it for highlighting so far but its already a favourite of mine.
I like it! The brush is very soft like silk. My skin likes the touch of it. I recommend it to everybody
This brush is so soft, so silky, it's really a perfection of a brush/ But it works with highly pigmented highlighters only, it works perfectly with Mary-Lou Manizer from TheBalm as it's extremely pigmented and I never affraid to overdo with it. But for less pigmented products chose less soft brush.
This brush is amazing for precision highlighting. It's so luxurious and it feels super silky. The candle-shaped brush tapers to a point, which allows blending perfectly. It picks-up the right amount of product and depending on the pressure, you can control the precision application of each stroke. This is a must-have for highlighter addicts and it is the best highlighting brush I've ever owned!
I love the tapered tip that allows precision highlight on my cheeks, forehead and bridge of my nose. The bristles are soft and feel so airy on the face. I also use it for contouring and setting powder over concealer. Very versatile and beautiful brush.
I am a fan of precise placement of loose powder and other powder products. This includes highlights as well. This brush is the most gorgeous candle shaped brush which is so very very soft(and I mean it when I say so!) and feels as if you are wrapping yourself in the most decadent experience. The brush is very well formed and holds it shape well even after washing and doesn't splay under its own weight even though it is made up of squirrel hair. Definitely a highly recommended product!
This brush is pure luxury. It's softness does not irritate my dry, aging skin and it applies product perfectly.
This brush applies highlight with precision - I am new to the highlighting game, but the Z2 makes me feel like a pro. The softness of this brush and the small head/size rewards spectacularly. Great for sensitive skin. And absolutely amazing shipping speed and efficiency. Thank you CDJapan!
My absolute favourite brush for highlighting. I also use this brush to contour. Love the tapered end to allow precision highlight on high points of cheek and bridge of nose. A must brush if you love your highlighters
I am a huge fan of Chikuhodo z brushes, and the Z2 doesn't disappoint. I use this for highlighting, and its candle shaped brush head allows for more precise application. Super soft bristles. I could see this brush being used for other purposes too so versatility is a big bonus.
