Koyudo – very first pics

by Sonia G.

I am so excited to have discovered this brand ! Again, I repeat myself, but thank you so much Nikoleta, we are all very grateful ๐Ÿ™‚
Tonight, I will post just the very first pics … the review will be uploaded later on.

These are the ones I received today, I pretty sure I will order again, I will definitely need the Fu-Pa 03ย  too !

I have ordered on the 10th of July and I got them today, I already washed them, they are still a liiittle bit wet but you can’t tell in the pics. The parcel was perfectly wrapped, nothing could ever happen to these brushes, so much bubble wrap and a nice glossy paper bag as well. The quality is fantastic and the price worth the splurge. The big Fu-Pa02 costs Yen 3’680, around Usd 50.-.

I ordered them via the Koyudo site directly, you have to send them an excel file (available in their site) and they will send you a paypal invoice. It was not instantaneous, I think they have to receive the brushes first… I am not sure, but the experience was nice and smooth.

The FU-PA02 with the Tom Ford cream brush and the Shu Uemura 18 (the Shu is still wet in the picture) :

The FPr001 together with the Hakuhodo :

The Pr010 with the Mac 131 and the Hakuhodo G544 :

The C011 with the Tom Ford pencil and the Mac :

I haven’t tried them yet, will start tomorrow and will let you know what I think. So far, I am impressed !

I’m making a new list too. It’s obsessive these little gems, right ? I have two fu-pa02 and will probably buy anoother one, but with pink handle this time to vary the pleasure ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m curious about the fu-pa03 too and some eyeshadow brushes with mixed hairs (goat+synthetic) Were the shipping costs high ? On the website there is also deka fu-pa which seems a perfect buffing brush. Oh la la ! I’ll finish ruined ๐Ÿ™‚

yes, they are so cute ! I wanted some colorful brushes too in order to decorate my dressing a bit, we don’t have many decorations at home and this brings some fun into it, of course, they also are useful !
The shipping costs were just below 1000 yen !
oh the deka I saw it and I would love it ! what would you use it for ? I use the same kind of brush, a mini version, but for the eyes, it’s a hg for me for buffing and blending, I might take the monster version one day ๐Ÿ™‚
I really have to be selective too, there are too many beautiful brushes in Japan !

Nikoleta 27 July, 2012 - 8:29 am

The deka fu-pa seems appropriate for buffing in powder, I guess, but as you have dry skin you probably prefer liquid formulas. You’re rignt that there are so many choices now with japanese companies coming on the international market. I’m waiting for hakuhodo new brushes so I’ll wait before making a new order but it doesn’t put me off checking koyudo and making a wish list ๐Ÿ™‚ As you, I don’t buy a lot of clothes or shoes, don’t have time to go out often, buying brushes and make up is my hobby but I am always reasonable.

I’ll be joining you soon with my Koyudo’s! Just got notified that they shipped today!
(Of course you know me….. who knows when they will show up!)
I am excited (sad isn’t it…)

Sweet Make Up Temptations 28 July, 2012 - 8:29 am

Great ! I placed another Koyudo order too since the CR were refunded to me. This brand is really good and I would like to discover it a bit more in depth…
It’s not sad, you know, many people get excited with engines, cars, watches, sound equipments… My boyfriend loves engines, watches and hi-fi equipment for example, he can feel and hear the difference if he updates just one single cable in the whole system, so he cannot tell me that a better brush cannot make a difference ๐Ÿ˜€
I am just kidding, but that’s not wrong…

CC 28 July, 2012 - 9:49 am

Received my Koyudo brushes today (sent out from Japan on the 24/7 received on 28/7) and I love my purchase. I got the fupa02 and fupa03 but I have not use them because they are still wet (had them washed) but I think I will love them judging from the quality and the density of hair.

Do you like their eye brushes? I would love to place another order soon and I want to add some eye brushes.. And perhaps the dekaFupa and fupa01 too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Stacy 28 July, 2012 - 10:43 am

That is great! My husband is like that with Guitars and music and football!
I’ve tried to make him understand but I think I give up! ๐Ÿ™‚

CC, Can’t wait to hear how you use and like them! Where are you located ? That is incredible shipping time!

CC 28 July, 2012 - 3:36 pm

Hi Stacy,

Yes, shipping is surprisingly really quick. I live in Malaysia. I paid via PayPal on the 21/7 so the whole thing only took a week.. and according to the record, the brushes were held in the customs for 2 days!

Where about are you from? You had me cracked up when you said you felt like waiting for a brain transplant! LOL!!

Sweet Make Up Temptations 28 July, 2012 - 5:39 pm

Mine were shipped on the 21st and hit the post office here on the 25th, so once they are shipped, they get to you very fast ! even to Stacy I am sure ๐Ÿ˜‰
This Fu-Pa 02 is made with baby goat chest hair, since the chest is the best and softest hair of a goat, you cannot think of a better quality hair… therefore… I have been very very naughty and have ordered a few more brushes… I am not very proud ๐Ÿ™

Stacy 28 July, 2012 - 6:31 pm

Sonia I am very proud of you! ๐Ÿ˜‰
What did you order? Eye brushes I hope! When I ordered mine I did so from CDJapan.co so my ship time may differ. I think I’ll go straight to their site for my next order. I “need” brushes for the eyes!!!!!
Also, you need to wrap up a brush purchase for your boyfriends next gift from you! I did that for my husbands birthday one year when I wanted a gorgeous leather tapestry for my living room! ๐Ÿ™‚ He took the joke well and we always look at “his” tapestry and laugh!!

CC I am from the Southern US. I have lived around the world but am back “home” now. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Sweet Make Up Temptations 28 July, 2012 - 6:53 pm

๐Ÿ˜‰ yeah I know…
I wrote in the “news” what I have ordered, but this time I ordered from both Koyudo and CDJapan, because the items were not available in the same site. From CDJapan, I ordered the fupas with the pink handles and the White Mushroom, from Koyudo I ordered some eyebrushes (BP014 and C005p) and the fupa 3 (mineral), also the monster Deka Fupa…
Oh ok you ordered from CDjapan ! I thought it was from Koyudo ๐Ÿ˜›
I only have the Koyudo C001 brush and it’s excellent !
Right now I am taking the pics for the RMK, Trish, Nars and Inglot brush reviews, when I think I cannot find any other new or interesting shape, these Koyudo come and surprise me !!!
you really make me laugh with your “tapestry”, he already offered me many brushes ๐Ÿ™‚ he is well-trained… let’s see what he can do for Christmas… ๐Ÿ˜›

Hi Sonia,

Can you do a comparison for the 3 pencil brushes in your last picture?

Thanks in advance.

Sweet Make Up Temptations 29 July, 2012 - 9:33 am

Hi CC,
The Mac 219 is slightly thicker at the base of the bristles than the TF, The Mac is the less pointy of the 3, less precision application. It’s also the less soft of the 3.
The Koyudo is the softest of the 3, much thinner (thin by 2mm at the base of the ferrule) and 1 mm longer, but the scales of natural hair start only approx 2 or 3 mm from the base of the hair (the hair don’t bend all the way till the ferrule like the other two do) so it’s still very precise yet flexible at the tip. You can clearly feel that the Koyudo is way softer than the other two, but still picks the same amount of product and provides an even application.
When I received it, it was covered with the “glue” they put on the hair to protect them, so it looked like a hard and thin calligraphy pencil, when I washed it, the hair spread naturally to the shape in the picture.
It feels soft and solid, and it’s the cheaper of the 3.
Hope that helps ๐Ÿ™‚

CC 29 July, 2012 - 12:10 pm

Thank you very much for the thorough and detailed explanation, my dear Sonia. This is so going to my shopping list. I shall wait upon your next brush post to decide what other brushes to buy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sweet Make Up Temptations 29 July, 2012 - 12:35 pm

Thank you CC ๐Ÿ™‚
I forgot to mention, of course I still love my Mac … and it’s one of the bests to roughly smudge cream or pencil eyeliner for a smokey eye base for example or a thick line.. Depending on the pencil texture, I am not sure that the Koyudo would be able to smudge it so easily. I really think Koyudo pick the best quality goat hair for their brushes, I can’t wait to receive the white mushroom ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Did you get my comment about Omorovicza? Perhaps I deleted it.
You need to check out their products today / tommorrow because their special deals end on 31.07.
Let me know if you want more info. It’s expensive stuff but the discount codes & special offers (till tommorrow) make it very interesting to test.
The complexion enhancer & the BB cream are EXCELLENT for dry skin & have no silicone. I also use the cleanser & mask.
GREAT stuff!

Sweet Make Up Temptations 30 July, 2012 - 9:10 pm

I will ๐Ÿ˜€ thank you !

Buggsiebee 30 July, 2012 - 9:27 pm

Any product with SPF gets a 20% discount with the code SPF and if you spend over โ‚ฌ125,- then you get their fantastic cleansing mask ( โ‚ฌ65,- ) for free.
The Omorovicza Essentials set is a good introduction to the brand & is also available at a reduced priceat the moment.
I like the Hungarian mist to freshen/ set my makeup – especially if it looks a bit powdery. It has NO alchohol. GOOD stuff!!
