my mother is going to korea next month and i was thinking of having her pick me up a set of shu eumura brushed. does anyone know if they are cheaper over there?




Sorry late reply. I'm in Korea and no they're not cheaper here. They're an import so subject to tax/duty. Cheaper in the US or Europe.

sorry to have to butt in here but I am a big big fan of Shu brushes but I wouldnt recommend the mini brush set they have simply because it is impractical and difficult to use.

I'd rather spend a bit more money to get something of excellent quality rather than purchasing something which really isnt worth its value

Who makes Kevyn's stuff is kind of a mystery...It seems that his line has been produced by Shiseido, but it's not sure...
But, Kevyn was a fan of Japanese cosmetics. His mascara is certainly Japanese, and before he died he designed a whole line for a Japanese brand... I can't remember the name right now...
still, his line is owned by him (well, now his company) completely, so it could have been designed at independent labs. He didn't want stockholders from outside nor the investment of big companies who would be able to decide about what would and wouldn't come in his line.

my thinking behind the mini shu kit is i travel a lot and need a mini set as well......
but are they really that bad? i hate traveling with full sized products. i purchased the sephora travel kit its the right size for me. im really only looking for a good blush, shadow brush there are so many out there

HI Sofia!! again, thanks for the brushes .... The KA line was called " The Nudes", cause they were all neutral and nude colours, still a best seller!

hi all,
i was browsing the aisles at target ( ) and passed the cosmetic section when this caught my eye. $19.99 for this brush set that comes in a cute little carry case. i thought it was a great deal so i bought it. any opinions on sonia kashuk brushes? i know they're not MAC or Bobbi Brown, etc. but are they any good? they feel pretty nice...

Never tried them, IMO, Shu Uemura has the best brushes
