Believe the hype on this brush! Much better than the MAC 217, that brush is synthetic hair. I would repurchase if damaged or lost.

This is the most used brush in my collection. It's the perfect shape and density for applying and blending powder shadows in my crease. The skin around my eyes is very sensitive and it is so soft...

Not impressed by MAC217 or want a better version of it, buy Hakuhodo J5523. This might be the best brush purchase you've ever made. Like other reviewers mentioned it's super soft and dense at the...

This is one of the best Hakuhodo blending brushes. I really love it; it is better than MAC's 217 and is actually cheaper! I use mine on a daily basis and it is still good as new; is very easy to...

My first Hakuhodo brush was an emergency (kind of?) purchase as I suspected that my cheaper eyeshadow brushes (*cough* Revlon *cough*) were scratching my eyelids so bad that it caused what feels...

Initially, I was dead set on buying a MAC 217 as my blending brush. I have used it before and was able to get a feel of how the brush would work. My problem was that (imo) the bristles were...

I discovered Hakuhodo brushes watching Tati on youtube. I was afraid they where going to be super expensive and to my surprise some of them where more affordable than Mac. The most expensive brush...

Look no further for the perfect blending brush. If you have the opportunity to acquire a Hakuhodo brush, go, actually run for it. The J5523 is the closest MAC 217 dupe made by Hakuhodo. It is made...

Amazing, so much better than Mac it's not even funny. If you don't have this you need to order it today...along with many other Hakuhodos. This brush feels like silk on your eyes and blends...
