Sheds way too much too often

The brushes in this set are beautiful but have one major flaw that has me regretting this purchase. They shed. These brushes always leave a few stray hairs on my face during and after use. Brush 11 noticeably sheds the most. I have been using these brushes for at least a month, hoping that the shedding is an initial phase that will go away, especially with delicate and careful washing...but the brushes still shed with every use (and still during washing too). I find a better experience using more affordable brushes - it cosmetics, bobbi brown, too faced, over the wayne goss brushes. For the price I paid and the final sale / no return policy of this item, I have to admit I am disappointed and would not purchase if i could go back.

Wonderful set of face brushes

This has been my second purchase of Wayne Goss brush set and having been using it for a couple of years. It is a simple yet luxurious set. The hairs are so soft and it applies my makeup smoothly and with ease. I take very good care of the brushes I invest in and have not experienced any hairs falling out. The handles have held up excellent as well and still have the Wayne Goss name and number etched on each of the brushes. These are well made and worth the investment for the long term for any level of makeup artist from beginner to advance.

This is a fantastic set of medium-sized face brushes. Brush 10 Cheek has that perfect candle light shape - great for brushing on a highlighter or blush topper. Brush 12 I use for parting on blush. Brush 12 is pinched so would be great for co touring your cheeks or for any product along the hair line. Brush 13 is great if you want to buff/stipple your product on. Brush 13 is perfect for any finishing powder or pigmented blush, or of course, highlighter! Brush 15 I haven’t even used yet but I would be good for highlighter. I have added photos of other brands for comparison. Tom Ford 05 bronzer brush is giant compared to these. I wanted to have a visual proof to my classification of these - they are medium sized face brushes. Maybe even small. So they are great for small faces! I am a petite girl of 5’ 2” and these are fantastic. The firmness is med to light (#14). The #14 is the same density as SG Soft Cheek. Many fude brands make bigger size face brushes so in my opinion, this set is great to fill the void with small/medium face brushes. All of these are made with un-dyed goat hair so you can use these with cream or liquid formulas. Please note that with natural brushes there will be a goat smell. These have a medium intensity smell, meaning you will get a whiff of a goat hair smell when you use them. The white color will obviously also have the product residue after you used them (see photos). Do not worry - this washes out 💯 %. Now, Wayne does not advise to wash these a lot which makes sense, these are natural hair brushes with hair follicles that may get upset and dry if you wash them too much = think your own hair! A little bronzer won’t hurt them as much as the frequent washing will. When you do wash them, please use a baby shampoo or some other NATURAL brush cleanser. I use Sigma brush shampoo. After you wash them, consider using a condo that will not weigh them down or mess with the cuticle. This may affect the hair’s ability to pick the product up. I use 100% Aloe Vera. See my photo for what I use. It can be found in the sunscreen isle as a sun burn treatment. Make sure it is pure aloe. This still conditions and moisturizes the brushes. After you apply the aloe and put on a brush sleeve on to re-shape the bristle. No joke, it will dry to the factory slim shape!

Great brushes

These are so good and super soft. I highly recommend these brushes. There is a reason these are consistently out of stock.

Just o.k.

These are o.k. nothing special once you start using Sonia G brushes these feel more like synthetic brushes. They will do the job but do not compare to the quality & the performance of all the Sonia G Brushes.

支持Goss叔!250刀一套面部刷并不是很便宜的价格,这套刷子刷毛柔软,我同时还买了两把眼影刷,取色方便,还自带了清洁注意事项,刷子非常好!以后会继续购买的!A $250 set of face brushes isn't cheap, but the brush is soft, and I also bought two eye shadow brushes that are easy to use.I like them.

Great but very similar

The quality of these Brushes is amazing but they are quite similar in shape and size and I don't believe you are required to own all of them - two would probably be enough to cover your blush/bronzing/powder needs.

Amazing brush set

Absolutely indispensable tools for makeup application. Once you have tried these you won't be able to use anything else they are so luxurious.

After 2 years...

I am writing this review after 2 years of purchasing this set. All the brushes are in good condition, after being washed numerous time, no single hair was shed in any of these brushes. 👍👍 And after 2 years the price of these gems remain the same (no inflation) so it is great and a good investment.
