Shu Uemura is a line that holds a deep make up memory, it was my first pro line I tried as a teen in the memorable 1980's. I remember going to Parco Department Store in Tokyo and just astounded by the vast array of products this line had. The cream colors in little pots to the see-through lipstick containers to the bullet colors of kajals. I just spent hours in the little Shu nook of the store. The sales assistant began to know me so well that she just let me play to my heart's content. Those were the days! *sigh*
Anyway, one of the brushes that I had really no use for but bought was the 25BL. It just looked different and funky to me.
This one is like a stencil brush but made of soft goat hair. I find it a lot better than the kabuki brushes or flat top mineral brushes of today. The shortness of the hair and the flat top allows a pretty quick application of face powder, mineral foundation, or blush. Buffing is quick and so is blending. Washing is easy because the hair is short and I am not waiting two days for it to dry. So...
Why has this been discontinued? Or am I wrong? I hope I am wrong but if I am not, I would love to have a time machine and buy more of this brush because it suits many products of today.
Where is Mr. Peabody and Sherman? I need their WABAC machine! Anyone want to travel back in time with me to get some stuff?
