If you tell me what you are looking for (material, decoration style, price point...) I can help you find one :).

Tbh so far I am not loving the S134 for anything. In my experience it's not made to pack on much pigment with powder & cream products and leaves a very diffused edge - which are two attributes I would love if there weren't some other things that cancel out its good qualities for me. With powder eyeshadows I find that it looks like it's picking up an even layer, but applies it somewhat uneven, especially if the eyeshadow contains any shimmer (which is also the case if it's a cream eyeshadow with shimmer). I have tried it with lipsticks and while it applies a very thin layer which would make it ideal for dark lipstick its characteristic to leave a diffused edge doesn't make it suitable for applying layer after layer to get a long lasting and crisp lip. I think it could be good for a bitten, very blotted down look. Its thin tip inspired me to try it with eyeliner, the softness of the hairs makes the brush floppy when it's used to line and smudge, too much wriggling and skin moving around for my taste.
Unfortunately I am still trying to find a concealer texture that I like so no magic happening here, with waxy textures it leaves a streaky finish but it applies liquid concealer well, very thin. I like how the hairs don't soak up product, I think you can reapply many times before the brush hairs start to clump.

To be fair, I don't like the brush this one reminds me of much either: MAC 239. The Tamage is of course thinner, softer and more flexible, the brush head dimensions are very similar though. The MAC brush is a more versatile eye brush due to its white goat hair....

Well good quality, not too small, different spaces for a lot of threads, accessories for sewing and the sewing machine. Made of wood. And a big space for scissors. If you find a link, I'd love to see what is available in Japan :D

No price point? So you are ok with 100000 Yen antique sewing boxes? ;)
I will try to find some links for you this weekend :)

:ty: Jeanette! Cat is coming over on Saturday and will bring her Kiwami brush. We want to compare it to the Kihitsu brushes. I am hoping if they can stand up to the kiwami then my lemming won't be so hard and I can stop kicking myself for missing out on it, (yeah right). :lol: :mrgreen:

I don't know if I want to see Sin's links for Jeanette's quest. :doh: :naughty:
