Hi,
Here is my little (but growing!) brushes collection, as of Aug 2013.

On the top of my vanity table I have some brushes for everyday use
and I keep my clean brushes in the drawers and plastic container - I'll probably use until I find something better to waste my money on. :)

I love to see that !
in your 5th pic there is a brush with the same handle as the foundation Houkudou but it looks like an angled head with black hair, is it soft ? if you had to say a similar soft brush what would it be ?

Thank you, Sonia! the Houkodou kb01 bristles are goat's hair soft and comfortable, I had no problems using it.
I think this brush is same soft as the Koyudo (a goat's hair one.)
in a way, might be just a tad different

here's a little comparison of the size, each one of them has a different shape but they are the most similar brush in terms of softness

Amazing face brushes, you have a very interesting selection! hmmm where are your eye brushes ;) ? I have the same Ikea dresser, I have really enjoyed this dresser for so many years, I am sincerely missing it now. It was easy to apply makeup in that mirror!
I have emptied it just recently to fill in the Alex instead and I have to get used to the studio now without that Ikea mirror. Actually I think I may bring it down to the studio :roll:
I spent ages at Ikea on Saturday trying to find temporary dressers to host my items that are now in the little studio/office-beauty corner. I found a huge office desk that I still wonder how I managed to fit it inside my tiny little car on my own :lol: and also a few other temporary things but my beauty items do not fit inside :oops: I am in trouble...

Haha I only have a handful eye brushes which I don't use :oops:
One reason is I'm too lazy in the morning.
And the second is that I can't wear that much make-up in the office. The other woman don't wear make-up evtl only mascara. And when I wear some more makeup (lipstick, eyeliner) they ask me if I have a date :roll:
Haha ikea was my new home these days and for the billys and malm I borrowed my fathers bigger car. But yes they are heavy, 40kg one package. A man saw me standing at the car with my packages and he asked me if i need help :D

thank you for showing the eye brushes! so cute!!!
Maybe she is spending hours doing a no makeup-makeup look and she looks like she is only wearing mascara !?! just kidding... :lol:
they really would tell you about the date? oh dear!! :doh: who are they ? (no bad thinking here, I am just simply wondering why they think wearing some makeup is so daring).
Lucky you that he offered to help you ! ;)
