KOYUDO Akabeko Powder Brush
“Experience precise, flawless makeup application with Koyudo Akabeko Powder Brush. The dense yet fluffy brush is handcrafted with a purposeful slant to seamlessly disperse powder products over small to large areas.
The ergonomic handle features raden—a unique Japanese decorative technique that inlays thin layers of beautiful pearl shells. The soft, exquisite brush is adorned with a special akabeko (red cow) design that signifies good luck and protection—the perfect way to ring in the new year.“
The KOYUDO Akabeko Powder Brush is $135, and comes in a beautiful presentation box. I have to admit, I thought the design was a red hippo, but it’s actually a special akabeko (red cow) design, which has been associated with good luck and protection in Japan for centuries.
Its stunning ergonmoic handle features raden, a Japanese decorative technique that inlays thin layers of beautiful pearl shells, and it just looks so special and so luxurious, especially as the design features both on the box and on the brush itself too.
It is a very limited ediiton brush, and will be available only from Beautylish, so if you want this beautiful brush in your collection, you can find it right here.
