Hakuhodo B533BkSL Eye Brush

Pencil brushes are an important essential for most of us. They smudge, define, line and do detail work. Everyone has different preferences about size and firmness, and to me this Hakuhodo B533BkSL (Basic Series) is as good as it gets.

You can see that the Hakuhodo B533BkSL is very pointy, thus allowing you to reach corners and work as close to the lash line as possible. The horse hair is packed very densely with just enough give to allow you full control over the brush performance. Thankfully, it is still soft enough to feel comfortable and pleasant on the delicate eye area. The B533BkSL  is very well-made, no hair gets out of place and there's absolutely no scratchiness. The small size, hair quality and perfect shape of the B533BkSL make it one of my favorite brushes.

Bottom Line: The best $18 I spent in a long time.

Hakuhodo B533BkSL Eye Brush ($18) is available from hakuhodousa.com. They ship worldwide.

  1. One of my favorite brushes and the price just can't be beat! This is one of the softest, yet firm, pencil brushes I've encountered. Caveat: I've said it before, but it's worth repeating. Hakuhodo uses "If it fits, it ships" boxes and the smallest one ships for $9 (US); $12 (international). That means the more brushes you order, the better. If you're ordering just this one brush, it's definitely not cost effective. It's better to wait until there are a few brushes you'd like to get.
