Release Date + Collection Info

For our 2019 release, we wanted a travel-friendly collection that covers the most essential needs of your makeup application, while delivering the highest performance and exquisite designs. The result is the 3-piece Sakura Makie Travel Set. The Sakura Makie Travel Set by Beautylish x Chikuhodo features 3 essential brushes for makeup application: the Powder Brush, the Cheek Brush and the Shadow Brush. Each brush is handcrafted from the stunning makie print to the brush head by Japanese artisans.. The production took almost one year to make and once it sells out, it won’t come back.

I’ve purchased many of the Chikuhodo x Beautylish collabs before but this is an easy skip for me. I don’t like retractable brushes.

They look like exquisite works of art! And a very practical handle size for not only travel, but for those of us who are visually impaired, too. If I hadn’t just dropped $150 on my now up and running (yaaayyy!) SimpleHuman Pro mirror, I *might* have gone for these. Even though the face brush is a goat hair blend, it wouldn’t be used near or on any mucous membranes where it would cause a serious reaction. Safe is my wallet for now, though!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
I am looking forward to this release. Expensive yes, but or so beautiful. If I were only purchasing for myself I might be more cautious as at my age I wouldn’t be able to use these for 30 or 40 years but these are a work of art and I know my daughter would be happy to inherit them!!

Christine, how do you feel about Chikuhodo’s retractable brushes and also this set in general? I buy every single ChikuhodoXbeautylish release but never a “travel” set. The only thing I can see really desirable about this set is the beautiful handles. The hair combos seem slightly inferior to previous sets (sokoho goat mix instead of Saikoho, and horse and fitch hair in the mix for the other two respectively). I’d love to know your take on this release before I decide whether or not I’ll order them. Thank you!

I could only give you thoughts after using it, sorry! Hard to make any judgment calls from photos or info alone.

The handles look awfully thick — I dislike thick handles as they take up more room in my brush cup holders and are more awkward for me to use.

You know, I didn’t notice the Fitch. Googled it, as I thought marten. Not exactly. It’s a European polecat, in other words, in the weasel family, and pretty similar to a ferret. Not quite sure how I feel about that. Maybe they’re farmed, so better than wild animals, but… not sure that hair would smell great, when washed. Hmm, I adjusted to blue squirrel, so I must be good at rationalization. Like the CF people, this ought to be an automatic no for me. But the artistry in these beautylish x chikuhodos is incomparable.

I purchased these as soon as I saw the pre-release notification. Although I travel infrequently, my pressed powder doesn’t come with a brush (Charlotte Tilbury), so I need a travel brush for my purse. I already own the Makie lip brush, so the Beautylish collaboration excited me because of the new eye shadow brush (didn’t want a dupe). These arrived last Friday (pre-order), and I’m beyond thrilled. The powder and cheek brushes are very airy, but they pick up finely milled products easily, so I don’t have to worry about over-applying powder or blush. If you prefer a denser brush head, you can adjust the lever to compact the head. The eye shadow brush, IMO, is best suited for packing shadow onto the lid as the brush head is quite small. As far as beauty goes, these are beyond stunning. Having the powder brush on my desk is like small piece of artwork. I had no trouble justifying the purchase even though these won’t be used every day. P.S. I would love to see Chikuhodo make an accompanying full-size powder brush with this same design.

I’ve actually been considering buying the Sonia G collection or a Japanese brush set. Christine, when using the Sonia G brushes or other Japanese brushes did you notice an improvement in the way the brushes blended your makeup (as compared to brushes from MAC, Morphe, Sigma, etc.)? I’m wondering if using a top line brush will improve my makeup application skills.

I don’t use Morphe or Sigma brushes (probably not for a decade?), so I couldn’t say anything about those! I think if you have decent brushes, it’s less about the tool and more about how you’re using it, whether it’s the right shape/style/density/size for your needs.

It truly depends on the specific brush, how you use it, what you’re using it with, and so on! For example: softer isn’t always better… it depends on the purpose, the application, what result YOU want, how you’re using it, what products you’re using it with… softer brushes pick up less product, which is great if you’re heavy handed or if you’re working with an overly pigmented blush (for your taste/preference)… but terrible if you’re working with a very firm powder or something sheer! If your eyeshadow brush is too large, it may apply too much product at once, not give enough precision (so you spend more time correcting for that than getting the placement you want from the get go), and so on!

Thank you. I have found that most eyeshadow brushes are too large for my eyes in general. I love the Sephora Collection brushes #15 & #18, which are perfect. I need to search your website for more info on brushes. I vaguely remember you doing some articles on the Smith brushes. Again, thank you for having such a great site. Your passion for the topic shines through in your work.
