The size of this brush makes it a great multi-tasker. Finishing powder, bronzer, a broad sweep of blush, etc. The softness makes it incredibly comfortable to use with no prickliness ever. Nicely blended results always - for me, it pairs nicely with Z4 or any smaller blush brush to give a more beautiful color-contoured effect. Please note that squirrel is very fragile and the tips are prone to breakage especially if you use very creamy oily products or have oilier skin - this is an issue that I have encountered. Frequent washing is also not recommended.

I choose this Z-8 over the Z-4 cheek brush and it comes just in the right size. The hair of it is great for powder product and you can apply the most pigmented cheek color without making it too much. It feels like a gentle breeze on the cheeks.
This grey squirrel brush is extremely soft, very easy to use. With this brush I never put too much blush on my cheeks. I really love this brush so I just ordered z-4 too.
As expected from Chikuhodo, Z8 is a luxurious brush versatile for applying blush & bronzer ( & even setting powder if needed). The squirrel hair is top quality & extremely soft. Yet, Z8 is still nicely dense without being too dense, perfect for sheer & soft-focused application. If for precise blush placement, I prefer Chikuhodo rc2 which is also all squirrel. This is my first brush from the z-series and i can see why it's so special. It's truly worth the splurge.
I was so pleased with my Z4 brush that I simply had to add the Z8 to my collection. There is no doubt that Chikuhodo produces quality brushes so you won't be disappointed. The Z8 is just a slightly bigger version of the Z4 and ideal for face powder. I especially use it for setting powder, but it would also be suitable for bronzer and also blush. Highly recommended.
