167. Kihitsu will make new fu-pa01 but will be expensive

Hi Everyone,

I have posted a video of a lip brush made by SUQQU.
It is made with Kolinsky.

SUQQU told me that the lip brush with kolinsky would be replaced by another lip brush.

I don’t know information on the new lip brush but it will have hair other than kolinsky.

The alternative to SUQQU Kolinsky brush would be a Kyureido KK-008.

It seems less and less kolinsky hair.


I had a call from Kihitsu.

Kihitsu has some inventory of fu-pa01 at 5000 yen now.

After it gets out of stock, Kihitsu is planning to continue to order fu-pa 01 from Koyudo. But, with hair getting expensive, the fupa 01 with saikoho this time, will be more than 10,000 yen.

I told Kihitsu that the 10,000 yen fupa 01 would be expensive if the same handle is used.

Kihitsu’s image of new fupa01 is fuwafuwa, but with the current fupa 14 handle, with a flat bottom.

I had several requests to get fuwafuwa but it is currently out of stock.

Would you like a new fupa01 with fuwafuwa handle at more than 10,000 yen?

(not sure if possible)

or you prefer the current fupa 14 handle ?

Thank you for reading,

Toshiya

156 Koyudo BP and Fupa, SUQQU Holiday collection

Hi Everyone, 

I received an order for Kihitsu BP series:

BP039 Tamage -2000 yen

BP017 Pine Squirrel – 5940 yen

Those are made by Koyudo for Kihitsu, which sells them as its own brand.

As you might know, Kihitsu has been a sales company of Koyudo so all the Kihitsu brushes are made by Koyudo.

I keep getting orders for Kihitsu kolisky set – 6111 yen

It is amazing that people find brushes on the web site only in Japanese from all over the world.


Now Koyudo doesn’t make fu-pa. It is called f- series in synthetic.

I think there are some stock left for the old fupa’s and I am checking.

http://www.koyudo.co.jp/shopbrand/newfupa

BP production is limited to BP001 to BP023. 

http://www.koyudo.co.jp/shopbrand/bpseries

Kihitsu has own versions of BP and fu-pa but not all of them. 

———-

SUQQU holiday collection was posted to instagram.

 

There are an eyeshadow palette, two lipsticks and two blushes. 

Please let me know if you are interested. 

Eyeshadow 10800 yen

Blush 6600

Lipstick 6000 yen

It is November 1, and I will take a reservation from now.


I will introduce 2020 Holiday collections when they come out.

Thank you for reading!

Are Tom Ford brushes made with natural hair?

Hi Everyone,

The other day I was asked if Tom Ford still makes brushes with goat hair.

I received a similar question for Shu Uemura. They use to make Kolinsky brushes, but don’t make brushes with natural hair anymore.

The Shu synthetic brush prices are similar to those of natural hair, which I reckon disappoints some brush lovers.

As Tom Ford brushes look very similar to Hakuhodo brushes with goat hair, I had imagined that it was goat hair.

Tom Ford opened its first shop in Shibuya so I visited there.

A salesperson did not know so she went somewhere to check. And she came back with the other person.

This person was so open that she told me that their brushes used to be made by Hakuhodo with goat hair. But not anymore.

It is not made in Japan either. Actually, it seems to be a trend. Dior told me that their brushes were not made in Japan anymore.

Still, Kumano brushes provide many brushes to cosmetic companies.

Chikuhodo makes brushes for Kanebo and its group companies.
e.g. SUQQU, RMK.

But, most companies don’t reveal which cosmetic companies they provide with brushes. In most cases, it is a secret.

But, sometimes it is obvious.

Personally I think RMK sells good natural hair brushes for the values while most makeup companies sell brushes with synthetic hair. (the picture above)

It is true that I rarely get an order for brushes of makeup brands. People prefer Kumano brand brushes.

Also, makeup brands’ brushes are probably more expensive with advertising and personnel costs than Kumano brushes.

SUQQU has an interesting situation.
SUQQU at UK department stores sell brushes less expensive than in Japan, I guess, due to the currency exchange rate.

Some of you know this but you may want to check it)

I will ask more about brushes when I visit makeup brands.

Thank you for reading,
Toshiya
