The brush case- it was described as "beige pink" but it's really more copper. And the inside does not feel very nice at all.
Here are the brushes:
And here are all (except for the two brow ones I set aside for the bottom photo) the Hakuhodo brushes I own:
The ones I am most disappointed with are the B162 (brow brush)- the hairs are just too soft, flexible, thick, and long to be an effective brow brush for me. It would be more suitable for a soft brow fill in or application, rather than a more defined line and thicker fill in that I prefer. I also did not like the G545- it is too scratchy and didn't seem to be made as well as the others. The S113 (the larger orange handled one in the photo) is all right, it's really soft for goat hair, but it's also a bit flat, although it does apply highlighter well.
My favourites are the K002 (super soft powder brush, I love it and it's one of the first Hakuhodos I purchased), the B214BkSL (the J214 is similar in shape but the Basic one is much superior in my opinion), and the J5549 eyebrow brush. Those are ones I would definitely buy again. The others I honestly think I probably should have done without. I do like the G5544 a lot but it's so hard to clean that I really prefer the Sigma F80 over it.
I had a few more brushes I wanted to order from them (and I own 135 brushes!!)- they were out of stock on the 210 blush brush, but now I am not sure if I'll order any more anytime soon, if at all. Since I recently did a brush inventory I rediscovered quite a few really nice brushes I already have.
EDITED TO ADD: I really have an illness, I tell you!! I went ahead and ordered the 210 and two others. That's it, I swear I am going to block that site from my computer or something!!
