I wish I had bigger eyes to do justice to this brush. Still, I reach for it often and enjoy the experience. Great with matte shades and so soft and gentle to the eye. The tapered tip enables targeted coloring. Has not shed a single hair. No regrets.

In short supply of Canadian squirrel hair, even Houkodou can't keep its quality as before. Here I agree with Julie, the other reviewer, it's not as soft. Maybe there is a batch difference. I noticed that the previous 2-star review was left on 2020/11/24, the hair was probably collected in summer or autumn; whereas the 5-star review trying to say something good for G-S1, was left on 2021/04/30, assuming the hair was collected in winter. So either try to order your brush in late spring when the winter stock is not running out yet, or go ahead with G-S2, with shorter, darker and sleeker hair. And I don't agree with A from Canadian, G-S1 is totally different from G-S2, you must have received a wrong brush. G-S1 is 3 times the size of G-S2, considering the length, the width and the volume. My G-S1 is yellow, crispy and somehow rough. It's good for a wiping of base color, but not good for sensitive eyelids, at all. I can use it, but I don't like it.
Sorry to see about the previous reviewer getting a bad one, but luckily mine is really soft and excellent! I thought it was the G-S2 at first, and they'd just forgotten to send the right one - they are similar in size - however I love this one MORE! I love the G-S2 and got backups but I wish I'd tried this first, as I'd have spent the backup money on this instead. Mine is almost the same size as the G-S2, I don't know if that is true for every brush as the pictures made it seem way bigger - however it's flat and the slightly bigger size helps as my eyes are not small... soooo smooth and even and I find it more precise for application for all over lid (like a smokey colour)! WHY do they make such good products, I never want to use anything else. I love this one SOOOOOOOO Much!!!!!
As far as the type of the hair goes, this one does not meet the standard, rough and dry--not sure just the batch of hair i got on this brush, i would advise you to take the "grey" hair instead. i will be parting with mine soon...
A beautiful and excellent quality brush, best to apply eyeshadow base. I have similar one from hakuhodo made from blue squirrel, but this houkodou made from canadian squirrel is much more soft.
