Beautiful, colorful maki-e on Yamanaka lacquerware, a traditional craft of Ishikawa Prefecture.
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

      Never received my order! 1

      My tracking shows the package had been returned to CD Japan 10 days ago (it has been 2 months since I placed the order). Cd Japan refuses to issue refund. I am never placing an order with this store again.

      The quintessential Chikuhodo brush 5

      The handle design is an exquisite work of art! The squirrel hair of this brush is so soft and flawless. I use this brush to deposit finishing powder (not setting), specifically the Guerlain meteorites - in both loose and pressed forms! It is more loosely packed than the Z-1 but different enough to justify having both in my opinion! As it takes up more surface area on the face; it makes it more efficient for finishing powder. Cdjapan rewards system is great too, i wish rewards came out more often!

      Beautiful 5

      The mk-2 is the prettiest brush ive ever seen the maki-e print is simply beautiful. It's super soft, its never shed any hairs and i find that its works perfectly as a blending/finishing brush. I highly recommend.
