Stocking Filler of the day: Japonesque touch up tube

We're that close to Christmas now aren't we? It's almost unbelievable :)

Thought I'd show you another super cute yet usable stocking filler idea for someone who is starting with make-up or likes to travel. These travel friendly, short handle brushes by Japonesque look absolutely gorgeous in their black and glossy pink colour scheme. The brushes are of course not as soft as a full sized MAC brush for obvious reasons but they aren't unusable as well.



Talking about the efficiency of the brushes, I like that there's a good mix of a big concealer brush, a lip brush, two eye shadow brushes and a powder brush.

If you can apply Foundation with your fingers, the rest of the brushes should be more than enough to make up the whole face. Absolutely ingenious to keep in your bag for touch ups at school or work and of course a great item of convenience whilst travelling!



However, I feel the USP of this touch up tube is the fact that everything fits so compactly into this skinny tube that's only as big as a MAC Powder Brush.

The slick glossy pink tube is a cherry on the cake.

An American brand I believe, you can also find Japonesque in the UK at Boots and particularly this touch up tube at HQ Hair.com for around £16.

I have this and I like the tiny brushes but I wish the lip liner brush came with a cover bc lipstick just ends up all over the tube

@Sidrah - I totally agree! Can get messy.

Ahh this is a cute little set! You're right, it'd be good for a beginner, especially if theyre young - you dont want to give them something that'll irritate their skin - I hate those cheapo brush sets where the bristles are so coarse!

Although if I'm honest, if I bought it I might just keep it for myself :P haha
