The Hakuhodo S110 Blush Brush is from their flagship series of brushes that are made with gorgeous vermilion painted wooden handles with brass ferrules rolled in 24-karat gold. This series bespeaks an unprecedented level of luxury on every level. It has a perfectly sized round and flat head made of Sokoho goat hair that is unbelievably soft to the touch. Sokoho is one of the very softest varieties of goat hair- so this brush is not in the least bit scratchy or rough on your skin.
While this brush is soft it is likewise very effective at lifting and depositing pigment. The head is firm enough that it offers precisely the right amount of resistance to be suitable for use with a wide variety of blushes from those that are unpigmented and harder to those that are very pigmented and softer (and everything in-between). That it offers some resistance both in the pan and on the face means that you have to use a lighter hand when applying highly pigmented blushes. It is also a great multi-tasker in that it also works well for blending out and diffusing highly pigmented blushes as one might expect, but it also works well for blending face powders. I have even used it for applying highlighters.
Therefore the versatility of the S110 makes this a brush that I reach for very often. There really isn't much that this beauty can't do, truly! There is something particularly satisfying about using brushes from Hakuhodo's S Series- they are simply so gorgeous, so perfectly balanced, so perfectly constructed, so comfortable to hold, and so soft and effective. Simply put: using this brush and all of my brushes from the S Series makes me gleefully happy!
