My old powder brush desperately needed to be replaced. I'd heard about the japonesque brand from here and wanted to give them a try. I bought the travel powder brush and I really do like it. My makeup looks so much nicer. The brush is very soft and dusts on the right amount of loose powder over my foundation. It does occassionally shed a little, but it is so much softer and nicer than my approx 15 year old Paula's Choice one (which also shed quite a lot) that I'm ok with it.

I was looking for squirrel hair brushes, and was glad to discover that Japonesque makes travel size ones, as I prefer shorter handles. Although this brush sheds, it is the best I've found for a very sheer and even application of powder products. So I'll definitely buy another one at Ulta again if I need to.

Sheds like CA- RAY - ZEEE.
yes it's soft, but holy moly the time I have to put in to picking off all of the hairs off of my face . . .so not worth it. totally wish I had a time machine so that I could convince my younger self not to buy this brush. . . oh what I could have done with the $35 . . .

I received this brush as a gift, nevertheless I'm aware of the price of this and the fact is despite its fluffy softness the amount of shedding on this brush is unacceptable given its cost. I am not even a frequent makeup wearer so I would only have to bear the annoyance of the hairs all over my face on the few nights I do need to do some powdering and it is still a pain. I have a few other Japonesque travel brushes and they all work fine but this one is really bewildering.
It feels great on my face and I still do use it because I don't powder that often as is and if shedding werent a problem it would be a great brush but if you don't already have this I would recommend something else

This brush gives great coverage and is really soft, but after washing it a couple of times, it sheds like crazy! It's annoying to have to pick off the hairs while applying my make up. I'll probably be looking for another powder brush : (

The 324 brush convinced me that I needed to get a Japonesque Powder brush. I've never seen Japonesque products in stores, so I don't know how they feel like before I buy them. The blush brush is so nice, nicer than any brush I've ever felt, but the 933 was somewhat disapointing. I don't know if its because I got the Travel Size so the powder brush just isn't so nice. Before I even washed it, it was shedding... minimal but I've never had that happen on my 324. It is soft but not nice soft as the 324, and compare to the MAC powder brushes that they have on display at Nordstrom, I'd say go for the MAC, its the same price at the CCO. Its a good brush, but maybe the 333 would've been better, or for the price, i'd opt for something else.

I am SO glad I didn't review this brush right after I got it - I would've raved then. It started out quite soft, great for dusting on loose powder. But after washing it 3 times, it sheds like mad and is noticeably less soft. The last few times I used it, it shed at least 5 hairs each time. Such a pain.

While this brush is probably the softest brush I have used on my face, it also has shed the most hair. Since the first time I have used it, it will leave 3 or 4 hairs clinging to my face. This is really annoying because they cannot just be brushed away. I have to wet a cotton swab and press it against the hair to get it off. Not worth the money!

This lovely powder brush won me over to the Japonesque brush line. A sample of brushes was hanging from the stand in Nordstrom, and I reached out to touch the rather large powder brush. Immediate reaction? "Oooh." It feels like heaven on the face. Seriously.
The head is made from a blend of squirrel hair, so it's not 100% squirrel, but you'd never know it from the feel of it. It's wonderfully soft, and it's shaped in a graceful dome that allows you to pick up just the right amont of powder. It can even make the worst powder in the world look passable on the face, because it lets you control how much you put on. I was so in love with this brush that while I was on the train on the way home, I actually opened up the package just to touch it again. My sister laughed at me and said I looked like a psychopath. Hehe. But don't all women tend to obsess over an HG find? :)
The brush cost me about $35, which was a bit of a pinch for me but I've never regretted it. I love everything about it. I chose to get the travel version instead of the pro-size one, because I like working with short handles. The brushes are easier to keep, and they let you work close to a mirror. A good thing about Japonesque is that they use exactly the same brush heads for their pro sizes and their travel sizes. They don't make weeny travel-sized heads that compromise the function of the brush. Also, the travel brushes have matte silver handles compared to the pro brushes which have matte black handles. Black, for me, is just too common these days. The silver brushes look way more elegant and refined.
Pick up this brush today, and you won't regret it.
