Beauty Unboxing!! (Hakuhodo, Glossybox Dec 2012, and Chanel Spring 2013!)

Unboxing ALERT!! :) I've posted a YouTube video unboxing three packages I picked up at my front desk today (very exciting for me!!). I only really knew the contents of one of the boxes (Hakuhodo shipment!), but the other two packages were a mystery ...  Glossybox for Dec 2012 and a Chanel shipment (I was expecting two shipments and didn't know which one came in first).

So, first ... for those of you unfamiliar with Hakuhodo. They are the creme de la creme of makeup brushes. They are shiny little Cadillacs in my brush collection :) :). Hakuhodo is a Japanese brush manufacturer known for their high quality, hand shaped (not machine cut), extremely soft makeup, calligraphy, and other art brushes. You can check out their video here:

Most reviews I've seen on YouTube have just RAVED about how soft the brushes are. Interestingly, though, one reviewer commented on how they may be TOO soft for functionality. So, with an open mind and tempered expectations, I decided to purchase the Hakuhodo Winter Set 2013 - Limited Edition set. 

I normally shun travel sized brushes (i.e., the MAC holiday brush collections always seem to disappoint - not as well made and a little scratchy, in my opinion), but in this case (for $179!!), I figured I'd give Hakuhodo a try. Let me just say that under first impressions, these brushes do NOT disappoint! I still need time to really use them and let you know what I think, but as promised, they are beautifully crafted and very soft. Here are some pictures of my brushes, the travel case, and the eyebrow palette (?? yeah, I didn't know they sold makeup either).

The second box I opened was my Glossybox for Dec 2012.

And my third and final box was my shipment! (I was expecting two shipments and couldn't tell from the box which one it was. So, it was a nice surprise to open it and see :) ).
