Japonesque has released a new collection of brushes called the Color Collection. Each brush has a handle color that is meant for a specific zone of the face. Blue is for eyes, red is for lips and pink is for face.
Japonesque is cruelty free.
$14 – Lip brush
$16 – Fluff Brush, Crease brush
$18 – Foundation brush
$32 – Face brush
The Fluff Brush is meant for highlighting, blending and sheering out loose and pressed eyeshadows. Japonesque says the Crease Brush is meant for packing in pigment from soft to smoky. This is the sort of brush shape that I prefer for blending. The Lip Brush is for lips, though I think you could use it for concealer too. The Foundation Brush is for applying liquid and cream foundation. The Powder Brush is for blending, buffing and sheering out powders.
I like the pretty colors of the handles for this collection. I haven’t tried the brushes in this collection so I can’t speak to their quality, but you can go check them out in person at Ulta.
Have you tried Japonesque brushes? What do you think of them? Do you like the color system?
I have not tried any of the Japonesque brushes, but it is weird you did this article because I was just looking at some of their brushes at Ulta this weekend…LOL! I didn’t see these that you mentioned. I noticed they are on the little pricey side and I never hear anybody talk about them so I skipped over them.
I’ve only ever tried their safari brush, which was super cute.
I’ve never tried their brushes either, but I always wonder about them at Ulta, like whether they’re worth the extra money compared to EcoTools or Real Techniques. Most of my brushes are either from EcoTools, Crown, or ELF, I think, aside from some that have come with foundations or whatever. I’ve been wanting to get new brushes, especially eye brushes, but can’t decide on any. It’s too bad I missed the Furless Mothers Day sale because I forgot they’re a day ahead. I was totally ready to order a bunch from them at 30% off!
The one Japonesque brush I had was nice. However, my favorite budget brushes are ecotools (for the eye brush essential set. I also love love love the Makeup Geek brushes and my Wayne Goss brushes. I’ve bought a few nice brushes from OCC and UD. And I have some nice brushes from Too Faced. I bought a TON of Real Techniques brushes but ended up giving most of them away. I felt like they got weird after a few washes.
I bought the Japonesque BB/CC Cream brush from Ulta solely because it was on sale and I think it’s just one of the best sort of high-end brushes out there for my BB & CC creams because my other brushes are too dense and this brush make the product blend beautifully into the skin.
