I have all the travel size brushes and the ones that come in the tubes and let me tell you these brushes are amazing. They are soft, very easy to use, and they get the job done beautifully. They are a bit pricey but not so much as other department store brushes. These work even better than those department store brands. If you need good quality brushes that will last a very long time but don't want to spend all that money then get these brushes cause they will absolutely work.

This is a review of the Japonesque travel brush set in a metal//travel tube. I purchased this from a small/indie store.
I'd heard great things about Japonesque through MUA.
My complaint: The powder/. brush was very rough, was easily crimped although I kept it clean and in the original package, and did not wash well --easily could do better with CVS/Lumene brushes for this purpose. I have CVS brushes that have lasted for years and are much softer and stand up to regular washing.
So, my review for the eye brushes is excellent (a nice blending brush, a short brush for tight lining, and a pointed brush for making an excellent close to the eye line.. The container is wonderful for travel.

i am switching to mineral makeup and wanted to find a brush designed for mineral powder. until now i was only using brushes by trish mcevoy and mac. they are the best !!! expensive, but you do get what you pay for.
well, with this economy, i wanted to find a good quality, but cheaper brushes. based on all the good reviews, i decided to try japonesque brushs and went to ulta specifically looking for them. i bought a 'mineral face brush' which the box claims to be 'perfect for mineral makeup'.
when i brought this brush home and tried to wash it, the water became black. and it stayed black for at least 7 or 8 washes & rinses. i have never seen such bleeding with good quality brushes, only with the cheapest drugh store made in china ones.
when i tried to use the brush, it scratched badly and left many coarse hairs on my face - not a good look. i cannot imagine anyone with sensitive skin using such horrible brush and i am shocked, given such glowing reviews here, how really awful this particular brush it. i would not keep it even if it were only 99 cents.
back to ulta this broom ... oops, brush goes

These are probably some of the best brushes I've ever used! Seriously. I can't believe I forgot to write a review for them. The quality, workmanship, and durability of these brushes is excellent. I purchased an entire brush set for 39.99 from Ulta about 7 years ago during one of their 'Spend $75 and get this brush set for only $40 Christmas deals'. It included a large face powder brush, medium face powder brush, angled contouring brush, blush brush, highlighting brush, hard tipped angled eye liner brush (love love love), oval eye shadow brush, eyeshadow highlighting brush, and a lip brush, all in a leatherette velcro close case. After all these years, these brushes still apply makeup like new. Because they're large, I've ventured out in search of travel size brushes. I've tried many brands......these are still some of the best IMO.

I would have never considered these if it weren't for the reviews. The fact that their placement in the drugstore section of Ulta is a shame. When I was purchasing the awful rep that trolls the Ulta tried to tell me these were crap and tried pushing me towards a much more expensive line. I'm so glad I listened to the reviews here and not her. I love that they come in short handles so they fit in my makeup bag. They are on par with my MAC brushes.

Japonesque makes some amazing brushes indeed. I own both the powder brush and concealer brush. The bristles are sooo soft and apply makeup very smoothly. I never have problems with streaking or caking. And this price isn't too painful either.

love this stuff!!! i got it at ulta during their buy 1 get 1 free sale and i've loved it since!! the squirrel brushes are super soft. so are the sable ones. they are definitely worth the price. i totally recommend this.

Very soft, but they do shed if you wash them. I'd prefer it if they were a bit more durable, but while they last they are a lovely product to use.

I'm hooked! I love them! They are super soft...and my makeup application is flawless!

I finally decided to splurge and get a good, very complete set of make-up brushes. After reading the reviews here, I decided on Japonesque. I went crazy and purchased 14 brushes: foundation, touch-up, powder, bronzer, fan, eyebrow/eyelash, smudger, various eye brushes and two cheek - one flat, one angled. And then I crossed my fingers and waited for them to come in. I almost fell on the floor after using them the first time. These brushes are fantastic, and are softer and work better than the various brushes I have had over the years. I had some old brushes that I "thought" were soft... they now are like sandpaper compared to my new Japonesque set!
I have never owned an angled contour blush brush - boy what I was missing! I love every brush - they are so soft and provide for excellent, smooth application. The only brush I am not 100% sold on is the foundation brush, but I do use it on certain areas of my face after regular foundation application. The brushes themselves are very well made, the brush hairs don't end up on your face, and the styling of the brush itself is nice.
I am even happier because I also felt these brushes are very well priced for what you get. Instead of spending a ton of money on more expensive brushes, I was able to purchase more brushes. As a side note, I also use every brush now with my make-up routine.

<-- Addict. I have seven. Concealer, blush, powder, foundation, 2 eye brushes (#230 and #234), and kabuki. The concealer is tiny, precise, and gives a good thin layer. Blush is soft and fluffy like no other brush. Powder is the one I'm iffy about because it's half synthetic, but it does apply powder well and is quite soft considering. The foundation is great, thick and pliable and very multipurpose, with very soft taklon. My eye brushes are my favorites, 100% squirrel, and they are so resilient no matter what I do to them. The kabuki (aka bronzer brush) is lush, dense, and not coarse the way others can be -- it's a big soft buffer. Overall, these brushes are a great price, easy to care for, and of high quality.

These are the only brushes I use. My mom originally purchased them, and they are the absolute best for the money. I currently have the #230 full size eye, the travel foundation, the Bronzer, and the full-size Blush brush. The eye brush is fantastic and has withstood MANY months of foiling and cleaning. It always applies my loose powder mineral eyeshadow glimmers smoothly, evenly, quickly, easily, and picks up a TON of pigment with even a tiny amount. The foundation is great for liquids, the bronzer is used primarily for bronzer and mineral makeup, and the blush brush is great for mineral makeup as well. All are of great size, the handles feel nice and sturdy, and I never have any problem cleaning any of them. Clearly the eye brush is my staple, as it was my first, but I love all of my brushes and feel secure that they will last as long as I need them to. All of them range between $14.00 (foundation) to $35.00 (blush).

I have several brushes including a mini set in a tube and a regular sized concealer brush and foundation brush, and they are all wonderful! They never fall a single hair or anything and I particularly like the concealer brush, which is very flat so that it applies a thin and even layer of concealer each stroke. All the brushes are extremly durable and high quality.

Oh, the luxury! Japonesque's squirrel hair brushes can't be beat. They transform makeup application into a sensuous experience. My boyfriend even fell in love with them -- when I was showing a friend my new brushes, he grabbed my new kabuki brush and started stroking it on his cheeks. Oh. Ah! Definitely worth the price if non-shedding, soft, quality brushes and wonderful makeup application are important to you.

I am really sorry that I didn't listen to the reviews and try these sooner! They are awesome! Great quality at a great price. I purchased them a few times and kept returning them thinking since they weren't purchased in the dept. store they wouldn't be any good. However the reviews here kept me coming back to them. Finally I bought a few, ripped open the packages & used them before I could change my mind. I couldn't be happier. Learn from my mistake - listen to the reviews on these brushes! Have patience though - Ulta usually runs sales on these every so often so wait if you can and get an even better price on them. 2 thumbs up!

Japonesque brushes are incredible - I recently splurged and bought a bunch to replace my Sonia Kashuk brushes. What a difference! The brushes make a huge difference in the way my mineral foundation applies, blush, eye shadow, powder - everything looks smoother, softer, and well-blended on my face. Not to mention they are super-soft and great quality. I purchased the travel-handle brushes because they are a bit cheaper, and I find the shorter handle easier to work with than the full-handle brushes. They are absolutely worth every penny!

I have a few japonesque brushes. Great quality and no shedding. Fantastic prices esp. when it comes to their squirrel-hair brushes. So soft!! The individual hairs tapers naturally like true human or animal hair. This added to the softness unlike other brushes that cut hair giving the brush an abraisive feel. Definite repurchase.

Japonesque brushes are incredible, and if you go on there website you can see that alot of there brushes are made for large dept store lines. So you get great quality for less price. The only sugg. I can give anyone is not to use their brush cleaner its a little drying.
