I didn’t know that Hakuhodo had any more affordable prices! It was great to know.

I’ve never tried any of these brushes but they sound so amazing. I really need to try at least a couple of these brushes soon. Thanks for tempting me...Hehe

These are definitely worth trying, and once you use them, you'll won't look back!

I'm the same like you, my whole life I worked with brushes like RT and some unknown brands just because they just worked fine to me. When I came on Instagram I saw several people who invested more than 200 dollars on a Japanese brush set, say whuuut? A whole new world opened infront of my eyes. My first 'expensive' brush purchase was the Air brush by Wayne Goss. So happy with it and I finally can say that quality is really noticable when you pay more for your brushes. I'm not sure if I will get more japanese handcrafted brushes. All the brushes you got here look very similar to my 5 euro brushes from a small Dutch webshop haha! they are synthetic but i'm very with them!

Oh yes, Japanese brushes can definitely cost you hundreds of dollars, especially if you go with the more expensive brands like Chikuhodo and Suqqu (I'm pretty sure 1 Suqqu brush will set you back at least $100!). I do wish these Hakuhodo brushes looked prettier, but then again, I chose to go with their basic series instead of their fancier (aka more expensive) series, so I can't complain ????
