Wayne Goss, The Collection

2

Isn’t it great when you love someone and they do something that makes you love them even more?  That is how I’m feeling about Wayne Goss right now.  He is a beauty guru on YouTube with over a million subscribers and I’ve been following him for over four years.  Chances are if you’ve found your way to my little blog, you’ve probably seen his videos.  Wayne has just released his own set of brushes and he is now even more fabulous.

The brushes are hand crafted and made in Japan.  They remind me of Hakuhodo brushes (in shape and quality), but softer.  Yes…softer.  Unlike Hakuhodo, the brush name is embossed on the handle.  I had high expectations for these brushes and based on my initial impressions, I’m very pleased.  These just arrived, so I haven’t had time to play with them.  I will definitely do a full review at a later date, but until then, enjoy the pictures.

The #8 brush is very similar to Hakuhodo J521 from what I can see from the pictures; however, I don’t own the J521.

The brushes can be purchased at Beautylish.com in the US and Love-Makeup.co.uk for the rest of the world.  The brushes can be purchased individually or as a set for around $200.  Currently, the brushes are sold out, but are available for pre-order.
