The Z4 is smaller than expected, and is firmer/more resilient that I anticipated of gray squirrel hair. But for travelling purposes, this dainty little tool is pretty useful. The handle is classy and light.

I learned about Z-4 from Fude Kyun on youtube. I purchased RC-2 first (which is also a great brush) and finally Z-4. In time I figured out I like paddle-shape brushes better. Besides, this brush is so admirably designed that all you have to do is swipe it across the pan and then across your cheek. It works no matter which product you use. It picks up everything and blends as you apply. Glides softly and gently. Perfect size, perfect shape, perfect performance. If I had to choose one cheek brush off all the brushes, it would definitely be Z-4.
This is hands down the most luxurious brush I own (also the priciest)! It's worth it for the most part, since I have really sensitive skin and the Z4 feels so gentle on my skin. Docking one star because I've noticed some shedding even though I'm pretty good with my brushes. I'm not sure if this is normal since I've only been using it for a month so far.
I should have got it earlier. As a paddle brush, it's soft and elastic, very idle for brushes & highlights. No wonder he Z series has been so popular for so long. It's really a gem!
Soft,good craftsmanship, multitasker. The squirrel hair is a high grade one, way better than the artist series or regular one from Chikuhodo, the handle is sturdy.
