MK-1 is more beautiful than the picture. Its shape is similar to MK-2 but I couldn't resist and bought two. It's pricey but so worth it because the hair is so soft and never feel scratchy on my skin. Love it!

Makie: a unique Japanese art and craft where patterns are applied in lacquer on the surface of a lacquered object. Before the lacquer dries, metallic powders in gold, silver, and other colors are sprinkled and set on the surface of the object. During the Momoyama period (A.D.1573-1615), objects decorated with maki-e made their way to Europe's nobility and royalty via missionaries who had visited Japan. Large volumes of maki-e were exported. It is this colorful maki-e that has been applied to the handles of these brushes by craftsmen using printing techniques. Enjoy your fill of a collaboration between the beauty of the completely clear, black lacquer and the gorgeous maki-e.
This powder brush comes with a traditional Yamanaka-nuri style maki-e on the handle. It uses the highest grade gray squirrel hair. Extremely soft brush for applying loose setting powder and pressed finishing powders. It's a large brush with soft and dense natural bristles that are domed. The dense head gives a flawless coverage that you would not achieve with a regular powder brush. Ideal for blending contour and highlight, also a great size for bronzer.
Usage: Powder, Finishing, Bronzer / Softness (degree 1-10): 9

The MK-1 is very soft and glides on the skin when applying powder. It does not irritate my skin. The artwork on the brush handle is a gorgeous and it makes be happy to look at it before I use the brush. It is on the expensive side, but is of high quality and craftsmanship, and to me, worth the cost.
