Hakuhodo S127Bk Eye Shadow Brush is a brush that retails for $38.00.
Hakuhodo S127Bk Eye Shadow Brush ($38.00) is a medium, flat eyeshadow brush with a tapered edge. It is made out of Canadian squirrel, and the brush head is 15.20mm in height, 11.25mm in width, and 4.50mm in depth with a total length of 15.70cm. Unsurprisingly, it was incredibly soft and smooth, and I could use it any direction and never feel the point of an individual bristle. It washed well and held its shape upon drying, though it is not recommended to wash this brush frequently due to the type of hair.
Against my eye, it ended up being rather large, so it did not find its way into my personal must-haves, but it is a great brush for all-over lid color application, especially for those who prefer medium, buildable pigmentation than true-to-pan, one layer opacity. It also worked well for diffusing edges and gently layering one eyeshadow over another when they had more powdery textures. The flatter shape, which had no fluffiness, did work best for laying down color over blending. I liked it for patting on loose powder underneath my eyes (over concealer), though I would likely reach for a larger brush normally.
This brush would be best for someone with medium or larger eyes (particularly someone who has a lot of lid space) and wants something incredibly smooth and soft to the touch for laying down sheer to medium coverage powders.
It is highly prized by makeup artists and makeup enthusiasts due to its uniform body and controllability. It enables you to achieve natural blending of colors and sheer coverage.
