Sold out

All-around traditional Japanese facial brush for applying powder or liquid cosmetics and facial masks.


Same design as Japanese geishas, maikos and kabuki performers have used for over 400 years (known as Naga-Itabake.)

Long handle for ease of application and control, crafted from aromatic Japanese hinoki cypress.

Dome has a slight taper around the edges so you can contour or use it to sculpt your prominent features.

The handcrafting process produces minor differences in appearance, adding subtle variations and individual qualities to each piece. Measurements may vary slightly.

Hair Material: Japanese white goat

Handle Material: Hinoki cypress wood, silk stitching

Overall Length: 125 mm

Hair Width: 35 mm

Product of Japan

    I love this brush! I use it almost daily for applying foundation. The way it fits the curves of your face, around the eyes and nose, is absolutely perfect. It took me a little while to get used to handling it since it's different than any other brush I've used before. It fits very nicely in my hand and is comfortable to use. My only concern is that I'm not sure about the best way to clean it. The bristles are short and I'm afraid to get the base wet. Maybe we could get a blog about how to care for these brushes in the future? I would love that =)
