Hakuhodo Haul

Hello and Happy New Year friends! I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas as well! My Christmas was fantastic!!! My honey treated me quite well this year! :) One of my gifts was cash for Hakuhodo brushes.

Here is what I hauled from Hakuhodo before the price increase. A lot of the brushes I purchased did not increase and few had quite a large increase. The G520 foundation brush had the largest increase of the brushes I purchased, increasing from $60 to $94! I wished I would have known which other brushes were having a large increase that were on my list so that I could have purchased them first. At least I don't have many brushes left on my list with a large increase. I just received these brushes yesterday so I haven't had a chance to use them yet. This post will just be pictures and descriptions.
