Hakuhodo Brushes: you get great quality for your money. I will absolutely order more of them!
Last time I already showed you two of the first Hakuhodo brushes that I ordered: J5523 and J142. After I ordered those two I decided that I definitely needed some more of Hakuhodo! So I ordered 2 new brushes:
- Hakuhodo J122 and
- Hakuhodo J5529
Hakuhodo J122 Eye Shadow Brush Round & Angled
Carefully designed bristles create an angled brush surface for effortless contouring and highlighting. Resilient yet soft goat is used in the bristles and produces bright coloring.
Some photos from the official Hakuhodo website:
Here is mine. I’ve already used it for a couple of months now, it’s just been washed before I took this photo:
I love using this brush for blending. When I’m done with most of my eye makeup I always finish it with Hakuhodo J122 and a bit of a neutral beige eye shadow (MAC Brulé/UD Foxy/UD W.O.S.). It blends everything perfectly and finishes up the makeup. I love the shape: it’s so easy to work with it under the eye brow and around the eyes! It really does everything by itself almost!
Hakuhodo J5529 Eye Shadow Brush Tapered
The Hair used for this brush is resilient yet soft goat. Its hair length and shape enables you to achieve soft and natural coloring. With this eye shadow brush, you can naturally smudge and blend eye shadow. It also can be used with all types of products – liquid or cream base makeup and even powder.

I’ve used mine for a couple of months now, it looks much less tapered than on the photos and more fluffy:
It’s still pretty small in diameter though:
I like using J5529 a lot for applying eyeshadow in the outer corners, in the crease and closer to the lasline. It’s perfect both for application and delicate blending!
Here are both brushes again:
