I got a Chikuhodo T6 with a flaw in the handle and several upside-down bristles in 2016. The cdjapan first told me that I could send the parcel back to them with my own money and then they will give me the "reward points" for the shipping fee. I didn't like the way they suggested. And then they told me they could give me a discount of 500 reward points if I kept the defective item. The Chikuhodo T6 is sold for 3500 yen. I didn't want to waste my money for shipping and bundle me with buying more from the cdjapan, possibly more defective items(unfortunately it became the truth), so I chose 500 points. If you got defective items, I suggest you bargain for more compensation as cdjapan usually sell defective items with 20%-40% off. I couldn't give five stars for this one as I hoped for delight with buying the expensive brush but I was not able to be happy with a defective one.
T-6 Eye Shadow L / Chikuhodo Takumi Series Customer Reviews
Just LOVE that lusciously-softness when i swipe or tap it on my eyelids for base eyeshadow, as finishing eyeshadow brush using powder or creamy eyeshadow, or even as contour or highlighting brush. Ain't no matter if u got smaller eyelids if u just wana enjoy that softness feeling when putting on makeup.
This brush did not blow me away. I got it because I'd read rave reviews about it's softness and efficiency. Yeah it's a soft brush for goat hair but you can still tell it's goat and not squirrel or something. Also it's a gigantic brush for use on the lids and it is a multi tasker because of its size. You could use it for highlight and I use it for setting my under eyes although I have other brushes that do the same thing without the hefty price tag. I just haven't found the best use for it which is why I feel bad rating it less than 4 stars (I'm sure some will disagree with me and say it deserves the full five). Also the white hairs stain easily and personally I just don't like that. I will try it more with some cream products but I doubt I'm going to fall in love with this anytime soon.
I bought this brush because I am forever attracted to eye brushes and while purchasing other brushes from Chikuhodo, this brush caught my eye! It is a beautiful brush that is fairly large and can be used as a finishing brush or a blending brush. It offers good resistance for cream eyeshadows and due to its robust quality, it offers precise control. This in no way means that it is harsh on the skin! No, this is truly soft on the skin and feels quite refined and precise! Give the takumi series a try if you haven't I find them to be stand out products in their category!
This is not only an eyeshadow brush but also a good highlighter brush for me. It applys highlight precisely and also blends seamlessly. It is perfect for spot powdering as well. A great multitasker.
This is a wonderful fluffy blending brush. It is large, larger than a MAC 217. It could be used to set under eye concealer with powder, or to add small highlight on the cheeks. It is very versatile and extremely well made and lovely to use.
If you are looking for quality, design, softness and efficiency in a Make-Up brush, look no further...The Chikuhodo Takumi Series incorporates all of the above. Made with top quality Saikoho goat hair, the brushes are among the softest goat brushes I own which lend very well to both application and blending of make-up products be it cream, liquid or powder. Coming to this brush, the T6 is one of the most unique and multipurpose brushes I have ever used. It is classified as an Eye Shadow brush but it is quite large and thus can possibly be best used for an all over base application on the eyelid. I think it makes for a great face brush for setting concealer, highlighting cheek bones, contouring, powdering smaller areas of the face like the T-zone, etc. Personally I use it to set under eye concealer - the pointed tip allows you to go in the inner corner easily, the density of the brush is moderate so it is good to dust a fine layer of powder and the softness is perfect for the sensitive eye area.
Love this soft and fluffy white goat hair! Its good to apply eye shadow to the entire lid and blend them out. Its also excellent to apply highlights to areas of face.
I bought this brush because of the White bristle and the brush is very soft to my eyelid. I also like using it for setting my undereye concealer
beautifully made, soft. multi-functional: can be used for eyeshadow blending or sculpting. very soft and pretty
