HAKUHODO makeup brush: suitable gift for your significant other

If you see your girlfriend or wife using common make up brushes, it would be a chance to surprising her with this present. HAKUHODO is one of the most qualified and cutest brush brand you can buy in Japan. It’s a bit expensive as a brush but I bet she satisfies the present.


Buying a set is good at first

It’s good to buy a set of brushes at first because ladies seem to use different brushes to make up and, as a man, we can’t distinguish them normally. There’re set of 4, 5 and 7 brushes but any sets are okay and cover normal use.

Look and feel

I bought them as a present to my wife in Japan.

Usually we can choose colors from black, white, coral red and woody but if you are lucky, there would be another color available such as Christmas red or Sakura pink as limited editions.

This time I could buy Sakura pink, Spring limited edition via internet shopping.

The look is gorgeous and cute. It looks heavy but actually seems not so much. The brush portion is made by natural hairs so the feel is extremely smooth, best quality.

Kyoto flagship showroom is the best spot to buy

If you will be in Kyoto, the flagship showroom is the best way to buy. There’s staffs for you and since it’s like a museum, you can enjoy choosing them with your wife or girlfriend in the stylish environment. The location is convenient for tourists, near Kyoto Gyoen National Garden.

Other places to buy

Of course there’re some shops in Tokyo and Osaka (and some other locations.)
