Beauty Tools Wayne Goss

The Brow Set by Wayne Goss

September 23, 2015

I have a small but well-loved collection of Wayne Goss brushes. His latest release is The Brow Set ($55) which has three brow tools, all designed by Wayne and hand crafted in Japan. I’ve only been testing these for a few days but have fallen in love already. My brows are the most-neglected beauty-related area for me. I groom them with a recycled mascara wand and although I have a few brow products that I really like (the Dior Brow Styler, NARS Brow Perfector and By Terry Eyebrow Mascara) I have been in need of a good set of brow tools and the Wayne Goss set does not disappoint. (On the nails above, Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Daisy.)

There are three brushes in The Brow Set. They come cased in a cute black cylinder, wrapped to perfection in black tissue paper and a black bow which shows love and care. The presentation as usual, is beautiful.

The brushes have medium length handles, they aren’t too long but not too short. Each brush has a black lacquered handle. According to the information on Beautylish, these are cruelty-free and hand crafted. From top to bottom is: Brush 22 (double ended), Brush 23 (spoolie) and Brush 21 (angled flat tip).

Brush 21 is designed for use with all types of brow products (powder, cream, wax). I really like this one because it has a wider flatter tip compared to most angled brow tools. It has a stiff dense tip that makes application super easy.

Brush 22 is a double-ended brush that has water badger bristles on one side
and a fine-toothed comb to groom and define brows and lashes alike. These both comb and brush brows to perfection. I like that the comb teeth are short.

Brush 23 is described as “an upscale take on the classic spoolie.” I am usually not a fan of spoolie brushes because they are never sturdy enough to last long (hence the reason why I recycle my mascara wands). You have to see it to believe it, but it is indeed another level of spoolie. It’s extremely sturdy and well made – it feels like it will last a long time. It has a cone-shaped brush and is densely packed but the bristles are soft enough so it doesn’t poke the skin.

Bottom line a winning set. The brow tools are extremely well designed, sturdy and made with extremely good craftsmanship. At $55 if you break down the price per tool it’s an affordable $18+ per brush. I’m ordering another set for one of my friends right now.

You can find the The Brow Set by Wayne Goss exclusively at Beautylish. Do you have any favorite Wayne Goss brushes? Which ones? I am hoping he will release more white-haired brushes this holiday or in the next year!

Many thanks to Beautylish for sending the set for review.

    I'm sorry but I really love your nail polish – it looks gorgeous! What brand/shade is it?

    I really like the look of 21! I feel like a lot of angled/flat brushes aren't as stiff as I would like.

    If the spoolie and Brush 21 came double ended I'd be buying it in a second.

    I don't have any brushes from Wayne Goss, but I don't expect anything but greatness from his products to come as he's a great MUA!

    I have heard so many good things about this brand and upon seeing it and knowing what it does…no wonder why many loved it. Well, this is something really worth checking out!

    On my wish list!

    I've never used any of his brushes, but this brow set has me swooning. I have neglected my brows long enough. I am intrigued by the spoolie and brush 21 as I want to start trying a cream product.

    i am very interested in #21. After buying a Wayne Goss brush set in the past I vowed to buy singles in the future. There were a few that I just don't uses because I found them too floppy (i.e. too long for their designed use). This is a good example of a reason to wait. Who out there doesn't already have a few spoolies or a few mascara/eyebrow groomer brushes from other sets? They do however make excellent gifts!

    If the #21 brush was sold on its own I would buy it immediately, I already have the other brushes from different brands.
