Wayne Goss instantly swooned me with his gorgeous brush collection from which I was able to pick up numbers 01, 02, 06 and 14. It has been quite a chase, but one worth the while. Wayne’s brushes are handmade in Japan by more than 20 artisans from start to finish. Japan most likely holds every brush crafting secret which makes it possible for them to craft some of the best brushes around the world – including these gems, imagine what you get for your money. They are allegedly made by the same manufacturers as Hakuhodo’s, so here’s your answer. A cruelty-free brush collection with uncut hair tips ensure the softest hair bristles I’ve ever stroked my face with. They also wash beautifully maintaining their original shape. His brushes are simple yet chic, elegant and most of all timeless. Today I’ll be reviewing Brush 01, which is also part of his first collection: The Collection.

Brush 01 is a slanted duo-fibre brush made of natural goat hair and synthetic bristles. It’s soft, dense, and balances comfortably in your hand. It’s designed to be used with both liquid and cream products. It has a rather small brush head with a diameter of only 2 cm which has his pros and cons. Pros: It fits in every nook and cranny, delivering a finish that left me in awe at first sight: the most flawless complexion I’ve ever had! Whilst I’ve only used it for foundation purposes so far, I can imagine it to be great at applying cream contour products as well, because of the brush hair type and size. The one drawback is you need time: it’s certainly not a brush to slap on your foundation with.
The result is truly impressive because it looks like the product has become one with your skin, touch your face and it feels like nothing is there.
I apply my foundation in streak motions as opposed to buffing it in – which was definitely something I had to get use to. However, the brush seems to do all the work for you: it blends in foundation effortlessly without having to use pressure – if pressure is used, it does seem to sting a tiny bit. The result is truly impressive because it looks like the product has become one with your skin, touch your face and it feels like nothing is there. Even so that a magnifying mirror even fails to detect it. You’d now understand why it’s become hard to reach for another brush now. Applying foundation might have become something slightly more time-consuming but once you witness the result, you’ll agree it’s worth giving up a few minutes of sleep – that really says it all.
