Every brush in The Collection was designed for versatility, with a carefully tapered shape to prevent fallout and ensure the smoothest possible application. Handcrafted in Japan with 100% cruelty-free bristles.
Thanks for coming out! We can’t wait until these brushes are available!! <3
A few nights ago, I was determined to start blogging more about things that I keep buried very deep inside - something that really only my family ever hears about.
It was inspired mostly by attending a preview hosted by the ever awesome (and oh so stylish) beauty webstore, blog, and community called Beautylish. It was a preview for the Wayne Goss Collection, which is a collection of make-up brushes created by YouTube beauty guru and real life professional make-up artist, Wayne Goss (hence… the name of the collection…).
Wayne is known for his straight-up, honest product reviews, easy-to-replicate-at-home beauty pro-tips, and his dreamy winks at the end of his videos. From talking to the other preview attendees and Beautylish staff, it’s his honesty that makes this collection so exciting - if he says they’re going to be beautiful soft brushes with well-balanced handles made with cruelty-free animal hair and handcrafted by Japanese artisans, then that’s what they are. There are no gimmicks or half-truths or PR spins here.
The brushes are, indeed, some of the softest natural hair brushes I have ever come across especially in the price range. The white-hair angled foundation is brush is the most expensive of the lot at $45, and compared to a $45 MAC Cosmetics brush, it is worlds softer and more luxe.
The main concern amongst my fellow beauty nerds was that the brushes might be too soft and the bristles not dense enough for proper application, especially for eyeshadow work, but I have a feeling that it won’t be a problem.
The good thing is we can find out soon enough. Beautylish will be starting the pre-order for this collection September 12. The preorder will open up in rounds, so the earlier you sign up for updates, the earlier you will be able to preorder (you can sign up here). The full collection will retail for $210, and I believe they’re supposed to ship out within the month of September.
Here’s a breakdown of prices if you’re not interested in the set:
- Foundation: $45
- Powder: $35
- Crease (Large): $32
- Crease (Medium): $28
- Crease (Small): $25
- Blending: $25
- Lip: $17
- Precision: $17
Now, one final note - the brushes are only labeled as such for ease of identification, but are, in actuality, multi-purpose. The powder brush (last picture above) can be used for all over powder, sure, but it would also make a great brush for contour/highlight, blush, foundation, and a wash of eyeshadow. The foundation brush can be used for contour/highlight, blush, and powder. All of the crease brushes and the blending brush can be used for eyeshadow, concealer, and precise highlighting. The lip brush can be used for lipstick and precise eyeshadow and concealer work. The precision brush can be used for detailed eye makeup, eyeliner, precise concealer, and brows.
So, that’s a lot of words about make-up brushes. And there will be more once I get my hands on them and have a chance to put them to work.
Any other beauty nerds out there who are jonesing for some Wayne Goss brushes?
Also, did I adequately beauty blog the shit out of this event?
ALSO, thanks Beautylish for having us and giving us champagne and an assortment of stinky cheeses. You know how to show a girl a good time.
