Actually Ive just found that z1 is 45mm. I'll buy it when the z7 come back in stock.z9 is For loose powder obviously. It looks almost the same as mk2. Even it is a bit fuller and softer than mk2. I would say that Z1 is not exchangeable by others. But z9 is possible to be taken place by mk2. According to the assistant mk2 is similar to z1. But due to the hair length. I would say that it's more for Z9. Actually I would suggest get z1 to z10 apart from z9. Get a mk2 instead. And get a mk1 for a whole face bronzing as the shape is more flat. I think mk3 looks more for a face blending or whole illuminating as the goat hair actually have an effect of polishing. But don't go down to other series. Chikuhodo are all great value and quality. But after tried the best hair. Honestly it's hard for me to use the TAKUMI123 whose shape are considered to be useful. The picture is z9 and mk2
I can't even begin to explain the softness of the brush. It's amazing!!! There's times I catch my self over applying my hourglass ambient lightning powders because I just wanna keep caressing my face with the brush lol. Great quality brush. Great purchase. If you do end up purchasing this brush you definitely won't be disappointed.
I bought this brush in a set of 6 and now I will be adding more to the collection. Love all these original brushes from chikuhodo (the z series and also the takumis). They are such great quality, super soft and well made.
I use this brush to set my makeup with powder and it applies it more beautifully than any other brush I have ever known. If I had this brush sooner I wouldn’t have wasted my money thinking it was the product not working for me, but it was the tool. I’m all in with Japanese Brushes now. Love them! Nothing is softer than these squirrel hair brushes
Best powder brush ever. So well-made and apply setting powder like a dream. I bought Chikuhodo PS-1, T1, and Z9 - Z9 is the most expensive and the best in every aspect, while PS-1 is the best value given it's price is so much lower than Z9's.
So luxurious and soft. This brush is just amazing its the perfect size too, not to big not to small. Seamless makeup application and Beautylish as always outstanding costumer service and super fast shipping.
Great quality and a must have basic to build your brush collection. Makes any powder application a true pampering experience!
Very soft, great for setting and diffusing, well made. Great for very sensitive skin. Beautylish's payment options make it more affordable. Highly recommend squirrel hair brushes if you have very sensitive skin.
After you try Chikuhodo’s superlative powder / cheek brushes, you WILL look at your previous, scratchy brushes (cough, CHANEL, cough) with downright disdain, and never look back henceforth, SERIOUSLY.
I love this brush. So soft and great disbursement of product. In an effort to take better care of my brushes I used Beautylish Parian Spirits. It ruined this and my other similar brush. Left it oily and with a strong smell. Can’t use any more. Be ware!
