I bought this brush from CD Japan but would have waited if I’d known Beautylish was going to stock, because of their fantastic return policies and customer service. Not that I would ever return this beautiful brush! I love it! I bought it to complete my Z-series collection. It performs well for blending out my transition, doing a final eye blend and for setting my eye primer and concealer. It is a similar size to the Wayne Goss no. 03 but more domed shaped (and of course has the shorter handle like other Z-series brushes). Pictured is the WG03, Z11, Z5 and Z10 eyeshadow brushes for comparison. I love all of these brushes and I am so glad I purchased the Z11 to complete my collection.
This brush is so soft and picks up and deposits the perfect amount of shadow for my transition shade. It also works great as a last step to smooth edges. Ive used it to set my undereyes as well. Its about the same length bristles as the Goss 16 but not tapered like the Goss. The handle is also about a inch shorter. Im going to pick up more as I can also use this is apply highlighter and nose contour. Its uses are endless.
I have purchased quite a few Chikuhodo brushes now from Beautylish and love every single one of them. Between my Wayne Goss brushes and the Chikuhodo brushes my eye shadows have never looked better. This Z-11 blend brush is fantastic. It helps blend and blur out the harsh lines so you get a beautiful blown out look without losing any of your color. These brushes are worth every penny. Thank you to Beautylish for offering the split up payments so it's easier to afford brushes like these when you are on a budget ;o)
I was looking for a mostly squirrel hair brush with a flat top for a while, Wayne Goss's brushes are all tapered and I really needed a flat one and this one is of great quality just like all of the Z line brushes.
This does a divine job of delicately blending without “removing” or disrupting any of the eyeshadow placement.
I’ve been collecting brushes for a couple of years now, but had gravitated towards hakuhodo mainly due to their huge selection and because they chikuhodo were harder to find (before I discovered beautylish!) I thought my hakuhodo brushes were amazing until I tried this chikuhodo. I cannot say enough about this brush. Initially I was fearful because it was so soft that I worried it wouldn’t pick up or deposit color properly, but with the smallest amount of product, this brush distributes the pigment evenly and perfectly. This brush by far outperforms my j5522, j146, and j142. The handle is slightly shorter, and it feels significantly lighter than the hakuhodo counterparts. I’ve included pics for comparison, but my only regret is not buying two because I have a feeling I’ll be using this guy constantly now. It’s the type of brush you wake up and look forward to using. It’s truly a dream!
It took me a while to finally place an order but I finally did it as a birthday splurge for myself, and it was totally worth it! This is my very first CHIKUHODO brush, and I was very impressed and addicted to this brand! I am planning to purchase more brushes from CHIKUHODO in the future for sure. We can never have enough makeup brushes, can't we? Lol
Highly recommend this brush if you were looking for a nice blending brush. I can blend so nicely and effortless with this brush! Definitely worth the price! And it’s so soft and comfortable for the eyelids. And I think the shape just perfect for the most of the Asian eyes (I’m Asian). Better than Wayne Goss blending brush (which is also great), since I think the shape is designed better for Asian eyes. Really hope that it comes with a smaller version for the same shape brush that can blend the smaller and deeper area color. I would definitely buy the smaller version too if it launch one!
The bristles on here are extremely soft and I like that it has more of a flat top to it than a tapered one. It blends the crease well and also works lovely to sweep over the whole eye in order to diffuse any harsh lines.
Just as an FYI though, this has a shorter handle. More like you would see in a travel sized brush. It's a good length for me, but if you like longer handles this is something to keep in mind.
This is only my second Chikuhodo brush and I love to use this to blend out my transition. It picks up my products very well and disperses it evenly and easily. Even shadows that I've found difficult to work with previously. It is ultra soft and a pleasure to use. I wish the handle was a little longer, I find that the shorter handle encourages me to hold it closer to the ferrule which means I sometime apply a little heavy handed if I'm not paying attention.
