hakuho-do + SEPHORA's Kusabi Wedge Sloping Powder Brush. Today I'm back with another brush from this same limited edition collection, but this time I have a cheek brush. The hakuho-do + SEPHORA PRO Fan Cheek Brush (Ougi)* ($50 CAD) is made with cruelty free synthetic bristles (yay for not using animal hair!!) that are incredibly soft.
The brush shapes were chosen for their precision, control, and ability to function as multitaskers. They are shaped specifically to sculpt and define the face and body by allowing for fewer, smoother strokes. They provide the freedom to use bolder strokes while distributing product evenly for a flawless finish" - Sephora
The packaging for the hakuho-do + SEPHORA PRO brushes is quite nice - as you would expect from such a luxurious collaboration! The red box that the brush comes in is very nice, and you can definitely keep the box to store the brush in. However, I'm trying to declutter my life, so while the box was a nice touch, in still made its' way into my recycling bin.
The red and black handles on these brushes are quite aesthetically pleasing, and the white and grey bristles look extremely nice when the brushes are brand new/clean. As you would expect, the white bristles start looking dirty the second that you use the brush, but that doesn't really bother me much. As I mentioned earlier, these synthetic bristles are extremely soft, and it's always a bit of a treat to run this brush along my cheeks. When I first got this brush, I thought I would mostly be using it for blush, but I soon found out that this brush doesn't really pick up a lot of product. So, it takes a long time to apply enough blush, and it simply isn't worth the effort. The being said, this is a great brush to apply a subtle sweeping of powder highlighter! I never want to overdo it with my highlighters, and this is the perfect brush to make sure that you don't end up looking like a disco ball!
