@ Whee!
NICE!!
I wasn't aware that one could order the Sbk brushes off the US site. How did you manage that?
Best you stay away from here if you want to continue to afford to eat every month :lol: The Hakuhodo brushes have lead to the ruin of many a savings account!

Yeah those are from the black version of the S100 series. When I discovered Hakuhodo, read about it and was on the Japanese website to finally pick up some brushes, I knew I wanted blue squirrel hair for powder brushes (I have dry and sensitive skin).

Then, it was only a matter of preferences about the handles... And I really didn't like the S100 vermillon series (sorry XD), the look was just "too much" for me. I hesitated a long time with the Kokutan series (that I find ridiculously photogenic XD) but I really had a crush on the S100 Black ! When I discovered the series was exclusive to Japan, I thought: "Typical ! I had to pick the ones not available to me !" *facepalm*

So I wrote to Hakuhodo Japan, they told me I could make a special request to order them from Hakuhodo USA and that's how I bought them. Of course it takes more time because Hakuhodo USA has to import them from Japan and then send it to me. I do have to wait a little, but I don't regret it ! :P
Whee ! Confetti !! - Where there's confetti, there's a party !

Whew, you went to quite an effort to get hold of your Hakuhodo black S series!
It's soooo exciting when you finally hold them in you hands after all the extra effort though.
The Hakuhodo customer service is so excellent. The really go out of their way to help.
Lucky for us :D

These are my first "real brushes", the S102Bk & S111Bk and I'm in love with them. When I received them I kept on brushing my face with them haha !
I just ordered two more from Hakuhodo USA: The S5557Bk (which is basically the G5557 but with the S100Bk series handle) and the S133Bk


Me too! I just have a weakness for black-gold and squirrel soft :) and they are both absolutely beautiful !!!

I love these more than the red handles (difficulty in handling), but takashimaya in Osaka don't carry the black s series, I'll ask if my brother see a black one this time.
