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 blush brush comes with a traditional Yamanaka-nuri style maki-e on the handle. The brush is made with natural bristles and is extremely soft and well rounded. The bristles pick up blush powder really well and apply it evenly and cover a wider area which makes application really fast, easy without having to spend time on blending. Also deal for applying highlighter formulas over cheekbones, decolletage for a finished appearance. Easy to throw in a makeup bag without fear of screwing up the brush.
Usage: Blush, Highlighting / Softness (degree 1-10): 7

      Compact 5

      I like retractable brushes for their portability. One with an exquisite makie design is a big plus. The size of this brush is smaller than I expected. However, I still like it as it is a beautiful item. The more expensive but bigger MK-11 may be more practical.

      Love the Set 5

      I bought all 3 from the Makie retractable brush series, the Powder, Blush and Lip retractable brush. For this Blush brush, it is particularly good for contouring and highlighting because of the smaller brush head. Also good for undereye powder, setting as the size is just right. The Yamanaka lacquer work on this is really exquisite and lovely, I am so happy with it and it is a great buy. I like that it comes with a cover that you can also use as the brush handle, it keeps the brush clean when travelling, great design.

      too small 4

      i love the quality and design of this brush - it applies beautifully so don't get me wrong. however i gave it only 4 stars as i find it too small. for travel purposes you are better off with the larger MK11 powder brush as that will also work as a blusher brush.
