Hakuhodo G series includes some of my favorite makeup tools, including these two concealer brushes- the long and narrow G538 and the the plump G542. Both brushes are made of synthetic fibers, a black wood handle (like most G series brushes) and a black metal ferrule that stands out among the silvery ones of the series.
G538 is very narrow and applies your concealer with precision to small areas, nooks and crannies. The hair is very flexible and allow you to maneuver and manipulate the brush as needed. You can use the very narrow side or the tip of the brush for minute and accurate details. G538 feels denser than other small flat concealer brushes and holds quite a bit of product, while maintaining its softness and characteristic pliability.
G542 is the closest brush I could find to Le Metier de Beaute's concealer brush, which is among the stars of my collection. Hakuhodo G542 is of similar dimensions, proportions and amazing hair quality. It's a little less thick than the LMdB and has a narrower edge. While I prefer the more luxurious touch of my Le Metier de Beaute brush under my eyes, the Hakuhodo is a great backup tool for it (not to mention much better priced).
Bottom Line: go get the.
Hakuhodo Concealer Brushes G538 ($11) and G542 ($18) are available from hakuhodousa.com. They ship worldwide.
