This brush sheds. I am looking forward to trying other brushes from this brand. I will not repurchase.

I had been wondering about this set for a long time, but not bought it because I for some reason thought the brushes were made with natural hair, which my skin doesn't tolerate well (because it's sensitive to scratching and basically all animal fur). They are not real hair - woohoo!The two brushes in here are the:- Multitasker Brush, which is a dense, dome-shaped brush, which is usually used to either blend out liquid foundation or cream products. I find this to be very similar in performance to the It Cosmetics Airbrush Blurring Foundation Brush #101 (slightly smaller and slightly flattened), which I have. To be honest, the price of the It C. brush is pretty steep ($24), and if I had bought the Japonesque set, the Multitasker Brush would've been enough for me. As I don't really use cream products, this brush is something I use with really thin liquid foundations, which just get absorbed if I use a beauty blender. Example: Cover FX Custom Cover Drops or NYX Professional- Go To Brush, which is a kinda small, really wispy, fluffy brush. For me, this is PERFECT for blush! If you are one of those people that feel like your blush ends up covering half of your face and looks kinda intense, this brush is worth trying out! My face is pretty small, and a standard-sized brush (MAC, Sigma, ELF, etc) is hard to use precisely enough to get a good blush placement. On top of that, I have relatively light skin (NC25 right now), and many of the blushes I have can look quite intense because most of the brushes I have are too dense, in my opinion. With the Go To Brush, I can work precisely and build up color gradually - very easy to achieve a diffused effect with this oneBoth of the brushes are soft enough to not bother my sensitive skin at all. I think both of the brushes are good, but I kinda wish they would be sold separately too. I bought mine at Ulta, during a 20% off sale. There is often a buy 1 get 1 50% off-sale on the Japonesque brush sets, so I would recommend to wait for one of those two (and sometimes they coincide) occasions to buy.

Ugh, this brush. This brush cost around $28, so it's not super cheap. However, I have $3 brushes that are better than this. I've washed this brush several times and this thing still sheds like crazy. If I set my face with it there will be tons of little black hairs on my face. I'm fed up trying to wait for the shedding to stop. This has to go. Save your money, skip this even if it's on sale.

I feel like I was completely duped when purchasing this product. The Ulta website describes this Kumadori Luminescent Finishing Powder as "a luxurious ultra-light weight and super fine setting powder with an immaculate soft pearl finish." Pearl finish my behind, this is just an out and out glittery mess of a powder. In one of the reviews on the Ulta website, the customer stated that she felt like she had purchased a loose glitter that was meant for a child. I completely agree with that...if this powder had been marketed as a loose glitter highlighter powder that would have been much more accurate. It's pretty!!!! There's no doubt about that, but it doesn't make a good facial setting powder unless you want your face covered with glittery sparkles. I think this product is pricy too, you only get $27 per 0.19 oz of product. Now, compared to some other items that's comparable, but you can definitely find better deals. Dermablend has a great setting powder, for $27 you get a full 1 oz or product. Overall, NOT impressed with this finshing powder. It's too bad too because the consistency and feel of it is very nice. The packaging is great too, this comes in a flip top pot that has a sifter and a nice powder puff. The powder itself though is just way too glittery for my face and makes for a very expensive body shimmer. DISLIKE!!!!Ingredients: Mica, Silica, Talc, Boron Nitride, Caprylyl Glycol, P-Anisic Acid, Hexylene Glycol, Serica Powder/Silk Powder, Oryza Sativa Bran Oil/Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Glycine Soja Oil/Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Lauroyl Lysine, Tin Oxide, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Tocopherol, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate, CI 77891/Titanium Dioxide.

I purchased all six of the Japonesque blushes during Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty Event last fall for 50% off so they were only $11 each and they've been worth every penny! They are extremely pigmented, smooth and silky in texture and last all day. I wish the color range was more extensive though, there are only 6 shades and shades #5 and #6 are really more like bronzers than blushes. They have numbers instead of names which is fine, just a little difficult to remember which is which though. The packaging is fantastic, each color comes in a sturdy little compact with a pretty artistic floral design on top, almost like an enamel top idea. It's plastic, but it looks expensive!Here is a rundown of all the shades: #1 is a clear pink color with a silky finish, #2 is a peach color with shimmer, #3 is a coral pink with golden shimmer, #4 is a plum color with slight shimmer, #5 is a medium brown color with gold shimmer and #6 is medium to deep brown color with a pink undertone and silky finish.Overall, I'm really impressed with these blushes. I'd say definitely apply with a light hand though, they are VERY pigmented and can look overdone if you're not careful. The quality is excellent, the packaging is beautiful, I just wish they weren't so expensive at full price. LOVE!!!!
