I love BOTH of these spooley brushes....BUT for different reasons/uses. They're almost the exact same LENGTH from top of bristle down to tip of handle--except the GSN-15 is just barely a teensy-weensy bit longer but it's hardly noticeable even when holding them side by side. Both have extremely long handles which is the norm for all GSN series. The bristle SHAPES are different, the '15' is pretty much the same thickness/width from the very top of the bristles down to the bottom of the bristles. But the '14' has more of a conical shape--think little Christmas tree--tiny at the top & wider at the bottom. As for the FEEL/TEXTURES of the bristles, the '15' is rougher, much coarser while the '14' is still firm & stiff enough to maintain control yet not nearly as rough/coarse as the '15' is. So given all the above info--I love the '14' for combing through my eyelashes after mascara application to remove clumps & ensure lashes are all going in the direction I want. The '14' feels 'SAFER' near my eyes/lashes because it's not as coarse & also b/c it's bristles are tinier at the top (conical) making it easier to get up closer to the base of the lashes. As for the '15', I love it for eyebrows--sets all the unruly ones into place plus it combs them all perfectly whenever I need to trim them. Both the '14' & '15' are great for blending eyebrow product into the brows but I still prefer the '15' for everything with my brows. See picture for bristle shapes--GSN-14 on the left, GSN-15 on the right.
This is longer and more tapered than my other spoolies and it brushes and blends products beautifully. The bristles are firm yet do not scratch. It's like a fine boar bristle brush for your hair compared to others that are like a nylon bristle drugstore brush. I hope that helps...
Its a very good spoolie brush that I can keep displayed with my other brushes. It's a nice stiffness for my brow hairs. I like that its washable and of a high enough quality that I will be able to have it for years.
What I like is that the hair is made of natural bristles, that makes it soft and precise at the same time. I use it to comb the eyebrows and to mix the powdered products. The only thing I do not like is that the handle is too long, it is good to make up other people, but a little uncomfortable for oneself, since you can hit the handle against the mirror. But I can not put a star less because we have already been warned that the brushes in this series are long handles, I would like to do it with a shorter handle and that would be perfect for me. It is also very good and does its function perfectly, it is just a matter of taste.
Love this brush, comes hairs and tames them- also used to blur and blend eyebrow products which it does a fantastic job at.
I like this spoolie a lot. I still like the chanel travel spoolie the best for brows. It is softer. This one shapes a little differently from being stiffer and that can be a good thing.
