The "Takumi" make-up brush series uses the highest grade goat hair called "Saikoho". The hairs used in this high-end make up brush series were handpicked by Mr. Tesshu, the brush artist himself. The Saikoho hair is as soft as a gray squirrel's hair and also has the strength of a goat hair. The product has no added color, because we wanted make its texture stand out. The brush is white, just like the original goat hair. Experience the ultimate make-up brush that was created from years of experience and passion by Mr. Tesshu's establishment.

The flat, densely packed head surface makes the foundation stick to your skin. Using a tapping motion with this brush helps to pat the makeup into the skin and create an even finish. Also great for applying highlighter, contouring and blush. It creates perfectly precise application. You can only experience this gentle brush texture with the "Saikoho" brush.
Usage: Powder, Highlight, Blush, Contour / Softness (degree 1-10): 8

      Most underrated brush of the T series 4

      For delicate hairs such as saikoho, flat top stamp brush is the best shape for functions. T-3 functions well as a foundation brush, both with high & low viscosity foundations. It's fool-proof, better than T-11 (T-11 needs some technics to master the application). T-3 finishes spreading & buffing at the same time. And it's easy to clean. The finish is very natural. I think it's almost as good as chikuhodo FO-2, which also gives a natural finish. For price wise, take T-3!

      Great brush 5

      I use it for both powder and cream foundation (not too thick, but not runny) and it gives me the blended, sheer to medium coverage I want :) I apply foundation slowly, and precisely in sections, so the size is just right for me. It's dense and soft - after the first layer of foundation, i tap additional layers around my eyes and I feel no discomfort at all.

      Natural mini flattop Beautyblender 5

      For those who want extra firmness from flat top brushes to punch in, tab and sweep or buff cushion, liquid, creamy, powder foundation and u don't mind smaller surface coverage, then this Takumi T3 is perfect becausr T3 can pack on faster after u apply, tab creamy or liquidy foundation with yr fingers or kolinsky brush. Too soft the bristles i find myself pressing the brush harder onto my face to tab or buff...but too hard the bristles will move everything underneath. Ultimately, i reckon it will all depend on how u PREFER the feel or pressure against yr face during application.

      Unique n lovely brush 5

      Is very soft n dense brush. I like to use it to set loose powder by tapping it on my face. Also as contouring brush as well. Make from goat hair that response well to my oily skin compare to squirrel hair. Highly recommend for oily skin or if you want full coverage as it picks up product well.

      Suitable for cream blush 5

      Bristles are dense and picks up product well. I use this for cream blush (NARS mostly) and it does a good job blending the blush into the skin, though admittedly, it can get a bit heavy, due to the density of the bristles. The bristles are soft and does not irritate the skin (caveat: I do not have sensitive skin). The handle is weighted nicely and the design, as can be seen, is outstanding from an aesthetic perspective.
