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 14, which is part of The Face Collection.

Brush 14 may not seem like a brush you desperately need at first sight, but you might just slap yourself in the face once you’ve actually tried it and realise that it’s an indispensable, unique brush to add to your collection – an absolute must-have it is. This brush is made of goat hair, which may not feel as soft as brush 02, but honestly, you won’t feel the difference on your face, mainly because the difference in shape. This brush is full-on fluffy and therefore not necessarily the easiest to control, so don’t expect a precise application because then you’re barking up the wrong tree.
The days when you ended up with clownish cheeks are officially over …
It’s a tapered fluffy brush with almost no resistance, which works absolutely wonders for applying either pigmented blushers or setting powder. It has literally changed my life in the way how I apply pigmented blushers: no more worries about using a too heavy hand – the days when you ended up with clownish cheeks are officially over. Dip your brush in the product just on the tapered end of the brush and swirl the brush on your cheeks and the brush hairs on the sides will do all the blending for you. No need for an additional brush to blend. It speaks for itself that the fluffiness allows this brush to be a champ at setting your make-up with powder as well, as it doesn’t disturb your foundation underneath. And now we’re at it, why not highlight with this brush as well? Once again, another versatile brush by the lovely Wayne Goss.
The shape of this brush really stands out in my collection – there’s not one brush that looks remotely the same. Looks aside, it’s its skills that really matter. It’s truly a life-changing brush as it has forever changed my feelings about pigmented blushers. What once used to be a nightmare to apply, has now actually turned into something manageable, fuss-free and truly effortless.
