The Shu Uemura sable/kolinsky brushes seem to have iconic status in the blogosphere space so I was very curious to find out what the rave reviews are about after dipping into Hakuhodo brushes. The price tag is steep, no two ways about it, so it did take a bit of lemming before I prised open my wallet for this purchase.

I use dark eyeshadow colours for a heavily smoky eye, so pigmented …

it is a basic standard size eye shadow brush, very soft, small and precise brush for small area. this is a good brush to apply the color on. not the easiest and versatile to use.

I bought this one dreary day because I wanted to cheer myself up with a splurge. I spent a couple days just stroking the head and admiring its softness. Now it sits in my brush holder, totally neglected, beweeping its lack of purpose in life, its potential (because it IS truly a beautifully made brush) wasted and overlooked. Now I feel like I have to go use it because I feel sorry for it. I …Read more

Yeah, I'm going to be "that girl" that doesn't absolutely love this brush to death.

Don't get me wrong, the brush is really nice quality and does a great job at applying and blending eyeshadow. It just hasn't made me go "WOW, how did I live without this brush?"

The bristles are firm and pack on lid color well. They pick up color …

I was really skeptical about spending $68.00 on a brush but after using it just one time, I'm completely hooked. The brush is the perfect size and it just makes the application so easy. The bristles are so soft and it glides so easily against the eyelid.This is my first Shu brush purchase and I plan to purchase more.

At first I didn't understand why anybody would spent so much on a brush but after trying it I changed my mind. This brush is amazing. I thought the MAC eyeshadow brush that I have been using for about 5 year was good but that is until I used this one. This brush puts the one from MAC to shame. My eyeshadow looks so different when applied by this brush. You have to try it to believe it …Read more

At first glance, this is an unprepossessing brush, especially for the price it commands. Like all Shu Uemura brushes, the quality leaves nothing to be desired: the bristles hit the ideal balance between softness (gentle on delicate skin, no harsh edges) and firmness (glides evenly over every contour, lays down pigment both sheer and intense). Not once has it ever shed. It proves a versatile …Read more

I personally feel that Shu Uemura owns the best Eye brushes! Best quality and worth every cents. Just have to try it to believe it.

A bit expensive at $67.00 but worth every cent. This by far the queen of all eye shadow brushes if you do not want to splurge on lthe Kalinsky #11 or #15, which retail for $135.00 and $270.00. Nothing else begins to compare. It's versatility is fantastic. It is soft sable, but not too soft and perfectly shaped. It is perfect for eyes hadows and it is shaped so that I can actually use the tip …Read more

I got this in the travel size. When you first look at it, it's a very unassuming brush, and actually, I was kind of disappointed because I'd expected more--it's not a very fluffy brush, more flat (like Japonesque or Sonia Kashuk), so it doesn't have that poufy feeling some brushes have (L'Oreal's eyeshadow brush, for example, seems "fuller"). But after …Read more
