I didn't believe this was possible, but you actually save $40 by ordering the set! The downside for me is none of these particular brushes were on my list for my next order.... uughh!! I calculated that if I get all the brushes I do want, it costs me only $50 more..... and most likely saves me from ordering again, so that's what I've decided to do.
Hakuhodo emailed me and the J Series (available at IMATS this year for those lucky enough to have attended) should be available for purchase soon.
UPDATE: AUGUST 22nd is the scheduled online release for the J Series, sorry!
They also said a couple of things "might" have a price decrease (whaaat!) so I am holding off to order until I see what they have next! I already had 5 brushes in mind so I don't know what the damage will be after I see the new ones lol! Omg white goat hair and duo fibre eye brushes, a beautiful looking highlighter brush, an extra large eyebrow brush, oh exciting indeed!!
