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!

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-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.
I love a traditional craft, so beautify. The hair material is very very soft. The product is bestest.
Brush on the skin is very soft and comfortable, hair is very dense. The handle is so beautiful, very energetic, I want to use it everyday.
Well well, this brush is so famous that I think I do not need to rave a lot about it. I was really seduced when first seeing its handle. The Maki-e technique of sakura blossom is very charming. The hair is as soft as touching a baby's skin. The only disadvantage is that it is suitable for people with normal to dry skin than others with oily skin.
