I own every all Z-series brushed and several GSN-series and Takumi brushes from Chikuhodo. My favorites are the Z-series. They are the softest and most practical brushes. I never have to worry about putting on too much product when using them. The only down side is that I cannot use them to apply cream or liquid makeup, but it is the case with all natural hair brushes, maybe with the exception of some goat hair one. Here is my personal recommendations if you are deciding between Chikuhodo, Wayne Goss, and Rae Morris, like I once did (I ended up buying from all these brands): I would rank Chikuhodo >Wayne Goss > Rae Morris. Wayne Goss has some of the best eyeshadow brushes in terms of shape, but Chikuhodo Z-series simply has the softest hair and best craftsman, even though it seems that Chikuhodo makes Goss brushes. If you do not want to splurge on the z-seires, then get Wayne Goss instead of other series from Chikuhodo. Rae Morries are nice as long as you are not too picky or have really sensitive skin. I find Rae's eyeshadow brushes simply do not distribute powder as evenly as Goss or Chikuhodo ones.
For the longest time, I've wanted to own this set, and thank you Beautylish for making it happen. The brushes are amazing. The quality is amazing. They are soooo soft, and so perfectly made. Not one brush has shed a hair. I own the Suqqu cheek brush, and the Z4 completely beat it out, hands down. There really is no reason to pay the high mark up for the Suqqu's when you have the company who actually makes them, with there own high end line here at Beautylish. You can buy this set and the Z9 and Z10 seperately and still pay less than if you bought the entire Suqqu brush line that is sold on other sites. It's a huge investment, but I couldn't be happier.
