What To Know About Brush, and Why I Love Masami Shouko.

11:59 AM

As some of you might know that I have quite a bad (or maybe good?) habit on collecting and buying makeup brush dari berbagai brand mulai dari drugstore sampai dengan professional or maybe high-end brand, because, as I always mentioned before, that makeup brush is indeed a good investment for everyone who plays makeup.
and when it comes to makeup, I am indeed a very picky one.
Well let's say I am lucky enough to know Masami Shouko since my first time using makeup.
I believe, some of you pastinya uda ngga asing lagi dengan brand yang satu ini.
Japan brand for makeup tools yang gampang ditemui di hampir setiap sudut department store.

Yes, Masami Shouko is one of my favourite brand for makeup tools.

Masami Shouko
I am using their brush first because of the price.
Menurut gue, brush Masami Shouko dijual dengan harga yang cukup murah, compared to the quality and the design itself!
Dan kalaupun sampai hari ini gue masih terus using brushes from this brand, it is simply because I LOVE (yes with caps lock) the quality of this brush.
Masami Shouko, is indeed using a high quality bristle from both synthetic and natural (animal) hair to create a great brush yang sesuai dengan fungsi dari penggunaan masing-masing brush, seperti contohnya:

Brush number 101 dan 106 yang berfungsi sebagai finishing brush terbuat dari bulu tupai, yang slightly lebih kaku daripada bulu lain sehingga membantu proses finishing dan mengangkat powder-powder berlebih.

Brush number 105 yang berfungsi sebagai large contour brush, terbuat dari bulu kambing untuk mentransfer warna dari shading powder secara tegas dan merata.

Serta penggunaan bulu kuda pony, di sebagian besar kuas wajah dan mata, seperti one of their bestselling items, brush number 104, yang berfungsi sebagai kuas untuk mengaplikasikan blush on powder.

Bulu pony adalah bulu paling halus yang dipakai untuk pengaplikasian makeup dengan hasil akhir halus dan merata, dan bulu tupai adalah bulu yang paling kaku diantara kedua bulu hewan lainnya.

Pony's Natural Hair.

Well, good brush in my opinion adalah brush yang tentunya mempunyai high quality bristle yaitu tidak kasar, tidak mudah rontok, dan yang paling penting, help delivers good result on our face.
Masami Shouko has completed all of that poin and what makes me love this brush even more is they come together with a very affordable price!
And they keep inovating their products dengan trend makeup yang semakin hari semakin maju.
Beberapa brush dari Masami Shouko bahkan udah qualified untuk dipakai di HD (High Definision) Makeup.
HD makeup adalah makeup yang tetap terlihat merata dan halus di foto tanpa perlu digital editing dan apabila di zoom tidak terlihat menggumpal dan kaku.
Let say their brush number 319 dan 320.
Both are made from High Definition synthetic bristle untuk aplikasi makeup yang tahan lama dan memiliki bulu kuas yang sangat halus tetapi tidak lemas atau bendy.

319 is one of their bestselling brush untuk membantu aplikasi foundation cair / krim lebih halus dan merata, and just fyi, this is a well dupe of Sigma F80 flat foundation brush.

320 is another HD synthetic face brush yang dapat dipakai di area bawah mata untuk meratakan concealer, dan juga dipakai untuk pengaplikasian produk wajah seperti shading / highlight / blush bertekstur cair, krim ataupun gel.

And if you are wondering why there's natural hair and synthetic for brushes, it is because:
- Natural hair carried powder, sehingga pada proses aplikasi, makeup tersebar secara merata.
Bulu natural memiliki tekanan dan tidak licin.

- Synthetic bristles do NOT carry or absorbing products, sehingga cocok digunakan pada produk liquid, gel, ataupun cream agar makeup dapat diaplikasikan lebih merata.
Bulu sintetis bersifat licin dan lemas / bendy.

I own a LOT of Masami Shouko makeup brush and my favourite picks are 215S from their regular series and number 41 - pencil brush from their professional series.

Both of them are, in my very honest opinion, an exact great dupe of Make Up For Ever 15S eye blending brush!

When Make Up For Ever cost me around idr.480k,
Masami shouko 215S only cost me Idr 42.9k, and the number 41 from professional series only cost me Idr. 58.9k.

And lately gue lagi suka banget dengan retractable stippling brush mereka.
Although it is retractable type of brush (Which is not my fave), gue ketolong banget dengan brush yang ini. It has a very unique, cute and petite size, which is helping me so much on saving space and I use this a LOT on my last trip abroad.

And if you are wondering why stippling brush came with two colours on the bristles, it is because black bristles are made form natural hair, and white bristles are synthetic. 
Bulu natural yang berwarna hitam berfungsi menahan bulu sintetis agar not too bendy atau terlalu lemas saat aplikasi.
Kuas sintetis yang dipakai disini juga berbeda dengan kuas sintetis biasa.
Bulunya lebih halus dan runcing untuk hasil makeup merata, tipis dan natural.
Looking for a very sheer makeup base? Apply your face base with this type of brush with circular motion.

Dan juga another brush (or maybe brushes?) from Masami Shouko that I use a lot on my trip is their stacking 3in1 brush. Well I don't know what they named it so, yeah.. haha..

When I first saw it I was like, whatttt ini cute banget...!
I love the idea of the stacking brush and it's kinda remind me of my old time pencil yang cara pakainya juga di stack-stack begini haha..
Well I own two of this brush, satu di mobil, satu di rumah and I always bring along on my trip.
No need long explanation for this brush, yes? What not to love anyway..


Well, there's a lot of reasons why I always recommend this brand to you, especially who are new to makeup and looking for a good quality brush with an affordable price
Brushes are indeed a good investment on makeup because it last longer (for sure) than the makeup products itself. All you need to do is just clean them regularly with the right cleanser.

So, make sure yourself to pick the good quality brush before you start investing on the higher makeup products.
Masami Shouko also carry a lot of brush set starting from set of 5, 6, 12, and 18.

Check their online webstore for complete collection HERE,
atau untuk yang pengen langsung cobain produk-produk mereka bisa visit stores mereka disini, dan bisa juga langsung visit counter mereka di department store seperti SOGO, Seibu, atau Debenhams.
