Koyudo Fuwafuwa vs Chikuhodo Z-1 Mini Reviews + Comparison (Guest Post on Of Toys and Co.)

06 Jul

Preface
This post is for people who want to splash out on a luxury, handmade Japanese makeup brush but have no idea where to start. I’ll be comparing two round powder brushes – the Chikuhodo Z-1 Powder Brush and the Koyudo Fuwafuwa Powder brush – in an abbreviated form with a shoddy info-graphic and pictures.

You can find the fleshed out version of this post at Of Toys and Co. which i originally wrote this as a guest post for. That post actually has stuff written out and explained so go check it out! This post is to serve as a backup in case anything ever goes wrong at Blogger. A lot of pictures at one of my favorite blogs, Brightest Bulb in the Box (on Blogger), are broken and can’t be viewed anymore so i thought a back up was a good idea.

Summary of Post
FZ Summary ExcelAvailability
Both of these brushes were purchased from CDJapan. Shopping overview guide here if you are new to the world of Japanese makeup brushes and are considering your first purchase.

**Edit June 2016: The Fuwafuwa will run you somewhere around 115-124 USD while the Z-1 Powder will run between 152-168 USD. CDJapan is offering a free shipping promo (details here) so it’s best to make a list of things you want and get them altogether. As always, if buying form outside Japan, the purchase is tax free. The exchange rate is kind of shit right now (almost 100 yen per 1 USD and seems to be getting more unfavorable everyday… so get your fluffies while it hurts less.
