Wayne Goss Brush 01

DSCN9160

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.

    It looks perf! Love the whole picture: Shiny and white! Do need a ‘fast” brush though. Curious for your other reviews.

      Hi Jasmine. Do you maybe have a recommendation for a “quick” foundation brush? Keep your eyes peeled! ;)

    It reminds me a bit of the Shisheido foundation brush but that one is straight. Works well too!

      Hi Peggy! I haven’t tried the Shisheido foundation brush but if I’m not mistaken, it has been compared to a lot of times! Probably also one that’s easier to get hold of here in Belgium! ;)

    These brushes look so luxurious! I don’t use foundation brushes so I probably wouldn’t get much use of this brush but I am looking forward to hearing about the rest of the brushes.

      Hi Agata. Oh no problem, there’s nothing wrong with applying foundation with your hands. Or do you use something else? And thanks, keep your eyes peeled! ;)

    i really like the slant on the brush. didn’t think i would go for that feature but after trying it on another, the slant seems to just make so much sense. i love that these are uncut hairs too, ’cause that def makes a difference in feel. would love to try these eventually!

    • http://ALICEYEH.pro/wp Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Hi Jenn. I was also not too sure about the slanted feature at first, but I got so used to it now. Maybe not the biggest fan but I don’t mind it at all. And yes, uncut hair feel so so soft against the skin – I’m obsessed now! I really hope you get to try these one day!

    Omg, I’m so excited to hear about these brushes. I can’t wait to eventually own some of his eye brushes. They are amazing and my favorite shape of eye brushes are the tapered shape that most of his brushes are, they really are amazing in the way they can apply and blend at the same time! Love everything about his brushes, although I wish they were a bit cheaper but quality is worth paying for!

      Hi Sharlynn! Have you tried any of his brushes? I’m very, very pleased with his brushes so far, and I can’t wait to own more of them … Because well, like you said it: quality is worth paying for! ;)
