please storage it with insect repellent."


That just sounds funny! :lol: Yes cedar wood. I have some blocks of it lying around. I will have to see about keeping some near my brushes that are in my Alex drawers.

MONDO-artist [D], Takeda 16ROVEXS and Chikuhodo R-C2:

Takeda SH12OVEXS and Suqqu L:

The 16ROVEXS (39mm) feels like a 6 on a density scale of 1-10, and is tied in softness with the MONDO-artist [D], which was the softest Saikoho brush I owned up until now. Not much use making any comments about the SH12OVEXS (21mm) when I only own three eye shadow brushes in total, except to mention that I'm glad it's as fluffy as it is; I bought it as an alternative to the Takumi T-6, for use as a small highlighting brush.

The cheek brush had a much more interesting shape than I expected post-wash: in between a classic rounded dome and a softly tapered candle-shaped cheek brush — a jumbo goat-hair version of the Tanseido YSC 14 immediately came to mind. Anyone expecting lazer-cut level precision bundling won't be impressed by either of these Takeda brushes though, especially the 16ROVEXS, whose bristles are noticeably choppy in some places. Is it because Saikoho hair is much more difficult to mould into these tapered OV shapes?

SH12OVEXS looks intriguing I like that it's more pinched at the ferrule than the Suqqu L and it looks like it would be awesome for blending. Thanks for sharing!
