So to compensate for my premature lack of enthusiasm for the Sigma brushes, I decided to order some Hakuhodo brushes, which is especially risky in my opinion because (and I am sure the package won't state this but I am still worried) of the natural hairs and the rules here can sometimes get a bit over the top.
But before I show those, I also wanted to show a super awesome new Sleek palette, it is inspired by the Olympics and London train lines and from what I have seen it looks superb! I didn't know I could order from them at all so by the time I discovered that, they were sold out of the matte palettes I wanted. I saw this set I wanted to order, but Sleek won't give a definitive date on when it will be available online, they simply said "soon". Maybe today, I don't know. Anyway, it's called the Glory palette, Honour blush, and Pride pout paint so definitely check it out. I do know that they lowered their shipping prices but I don't know where they will and won't ship this one.
These are the Hakuhodo brushes I ordered. None of them are unique, I based my order on brushes I already own but want to replace. I only ordered eye brushes because I was already up for two days deciding on those, if I do get the package there are 2 or 3 more brushes I want to order. I am not sure if I will or not, I might have to spring for the insured shipping ($40!) next time.

4. G5520. I am anticipating this one the most, I got it to replace a beyond ancient "Posh" brush that I still use for the "outer v".
5. G5511. I really love the Laura Mercier "smudge" brush, I use it all the time, so I got this one which looks very similar so I don't wear one out.
Lastly, I could not resist getting this case just cause I love rose gold very much and it looks very nice.
I am actually looking for something to replace this old Target brush I found, but been using it a lot now for highlighting, it's really nice for that. It's not a good brush by any means, but I like the shape and thickness. I want to order the Hakuhodo G511 but I can't find anything on it besides what's on their own website. I think their 210 brush might be good for that purpose so I can't decide. It's strange that I don't have anything else similar, so if anyone can recommend something like it, I'd definitely appreciate it!
So that's about it for now, hopefully I will indeed receive the items!!
