Hi, everyone! My name is Tara and while I have been a little bit of a makeup junkie for the past few years, I've been satisfied with my MAC brushes. Until they started to feel a little scratchy on my face. :x so, despite not having a lot of free time between work and mommy duties, I felt I owed it to my skin to find brushes that actually made me feel good when I used them. Then I stumbled upon Sonia's blog and voila! I saw the light! This brush loving community is great and I really appreciate the responses to my questions. I am @pickejoos on instagram and although a complete stranger and total newbie, I have received so many helpful tips in the past days I've probably bought more brushes than I should... But what the hey, I just turned the big 4-0 so I'm celebrating (at least that's my excuse) ! Cheers to all brush addicts! :D

Hi, Lyanna! I got the Z series (1-10), the Takumi series, the Suqqu cheek, face, e/s M & S. And the S116 vermillion, vermillion Kinoko, s144, s100. But wait... There's more :o I also got the shinQ set because of the handles. And the Takeda brushes I saw on Carlyn's IG post... I'm ashamed to go on..... :confusion-seeingstars: I added the G537 too.... I also briefly considered the Yakisugi set... Which is still on my mind... AND... It really doesn't help that cdjapan is having a sale!!! All these I ordered from Japan, but prior to this, I already ordered some (maybe a lot) off the Hakuhodo US website... Somebody stop me! :doh:

Haha, Tara, what a haul :confusion-seeingstars: :laughing-rolling: You did great, my dear. But what Takeda brushes are you talking about? Because sadly, I'm deficient in Takeda, :laughing-rolling: I have been debating the ShinQ as well, the handle are TDF, good choice I say. I hope you enjoy ALL the goodies. And turning forty is an excellent reason to indulge in all these beauties. I just turned 44, and don't feel it, hehe.

Thanks, Carlyn and Lyanna ! I haven't gotten any of them yet, being as patient as I can... :pray: oh, and it wasn't your IG post, Carlyn. It was by @novynovynovy. Sorry about that. :D. And when I finally do get them, if I let them out of my hands long enough, I will try to share my thoughts. With a warning I might be a little brush-woozy and incoherent! Haha :confusion-seeingstars: Merry Christmas to all!

Hi Tara!

You are going to have so much fun admiring and using those beautiful tools! seriously it becomes a passion and if one day you see how much pride and love they put into their work you are going to melt :)
The Yakusugi set is a piece of art indeed! I hold it just to smell it from time to time... (but pschhhht so does my boyfriend... true story...) :laughing-rolling:

Haha. Thanks, Sonia. I'm actually out of my comfort zone posting comments here, as I am a very private person. Reading through this forum and seeing how much you all love your brushes has emboldened me to come out and introduce myself. :D My partner does not understand my sudden passion for brushes and any discussion of goat vs squirrel and Japanese vs other brands has caused him to zone out rather quickly that he doesn't even ask how much they cost!!! So very very happy to have found this group! :ty:
