- Brush 27S Pencil Brush: a finely pointed detail brush for defining, smudging, concealing, and more
Why It’s Special
- Individually hand-cut synthetic bristles mimic the soft feel and seamless application of natural hair
- Designed to bring out the best in products of all textures, formulas, and finishes
- Handmade by Japanese artisans using traditional brushmaking techniques for superior craftsmanship
How to Use

These are gorgeous!
These brushes are the most luxuriously soft synthetics I have ever used! They are even softer IMO than the new Tom Ford synthetics and they are more affordable. Not to mention Wayne is just a lovely human so there’s that...Beautylish customer service raised the bar again by delivering these beauties at 8pm when I placed my order at noon - super impressed!45 found this helpful.K M.

Gorgeous quality. Very very soft and very very well made. To all the haters and complainers here these are WORTH THE PRICE. Wayne you did an AMAZING job with these. Love them as much as the other natural hair brushes that you released. It’s even hard to tell that these are synthetics. I find the price to be very fair considering who made them and where. If you don’t like the price go to Walmart and get yourself some brushes made in China.36 found this helpful.Christine L. Feb 05, 2019
Amazingly soft and beautiful!
I've previously purchased Wayne Goss' eye collection as well as several of the face brushes. When I saw this launch I really wanted to try them but hoped I would regret my decision because I already have and use his brushes exclusively. Well...they came today and they do NOT disappoint!! The shape of the 25S powder brush is so unique -- I love it! I've always skipped fan brushes before but the 24S is thicker and I can actually see myself using the brush. In the launch video Wayne said you could use this brush in up and down motions for foundation....I'm going to try it! The 26S blender eye shadow brush has a different shape than the similiar brush in his natural hair eye collection set and I think I may find myself using this to blend in concealer because it's the perfect shape for it. The pencil brush is a little bigger than 05 precision pencil brush and I can definitely see myself using this all the time!! Whether the synthetic set is your first Wayne Goss purchase or you already have some of his brushes, I think this set would be a great addition to any makeup lovers collection!!!19 found this helpful.Melinda K.

I didn’t need these but I bought them anyways
I own so many Japanese brushes. I saw these and was going to pass but then decided to order them after all. The brushes are very nice quality and the bristles are soft. I do enjoy the natural hair brushes more though. I love it when you wash the new brushes and they start to fluff out as they dry. You won’t get that effect with these synthetic brushes. I knew that would be the case but I bought them anyways. The 25S is my favorite kind of brush. It’s what made me buy the set. I compared it to many of my other brushes of the same type and I think it is almost exactly the same feel as the Hakuhodo+Sephora collaboration. Unfortunately, I never use that brush much. I have them shown in the photo below. I included a photo of my Hakuhodo F1312 (goat+synthetic) just for size reference to the 24S. These are nice quality brushes and will be great for those who want cruelty free. I think I will stick with natural hair brushes in the high end category. I think I’m happy with cheaper brand brushes when it comes to synthetics.19 found this helpful.Liam R. Feb 11, 2019
Game Changers in the Synthetics
I'm not typically a fan of synthetic brushes for a few reasons. The first being that because most of them are cut to the shape they don't tend to have the beautiful softness t them. Because these brushes aren't cut to the shape I decided to give them a go with no regrets. These brushes are beautifully soft and apply like a dream. When Wayne Goss says you don't need other brushes for the home application he's telling the truth. I used these with my other Wyne Goss, MAC and Bobbi Brown brushes this week on an artistic high fashion look for an event and the results were quite simply stunning. Well worth the purchase, and I can say I have not found a synthetic that matches them in quality.16 found this helpful.Souhaila E. Feb 08, 2019
AND THE LOVE STORY CONTINUES!!: A NEW DIMENSION!
Just a quick preface I fell in love with Wayne's brushes upon first try of one of his #2 brush a few years back and have purchased every release and collection/set since! The artistry of his brushes is unparalleled as is the beautiful uniqueness-they are curated completely by Wayne yet respect and reflect traditional Japanese brush-making. After I fell in love with Wayne's brushes, I never thought I would use synthetic brushes again-but what Wayne has done now with his amazing artistry and innovation is create the best of both worlds-You have the cashmere soft ultra luxurious feel (and of course UNPARALLELED quality!) of his unbleached (cruelty free) goat hair bristles that give you technique and Wayne's artistry at your fingertips-now with a new dimension to his artistic vision in Synthetics. The craftsmanship and Wayne's knowledge of how makeup works with the skin makes this possible. Now you are able to be able to work with even more technique(and additional medium) in different combinations and different ways-I have the Fan Brush from The Face Set, and to see it in this dimension as a brush that gives you a whole new facet of artistry with foundation-the flawless and divine blend of applying foundation with a brush like his #1 Anniversary combined with this brush which allows you to disperse and blend in different ways, use powder in different ways- AND working with contour(for example working with a liquid or cream contour product(ie Charlotte Tilbury's gorgeous Hollywood Contour Stick!) The Large Powder is also exquisite, the way it disperses and blends is impeccable-if you already have Wayne's brushes, again, you have new dimensions/technique at your disposal and the joy of being able to add these to your collection and having the two types in concert! With the smaller brushes, you have some new tools in your arsenal as well!: with the softness and luxury of Wayne's brushes that enable you increase your range of technique even further, the Flat brush allowing you to apply blend concealer, of course to use with shadow- with the smallest brush, being able to use it under the eye with pigment/shadow (I'm a Natasha Denona shadow lover;")) but not have the rough feel of a normal synthetic on the eye. I disagree with the other reviewer about "price for synthetic'' ie the price being to high for synthetic-these brushes are the same gorgeous, unparalleled quality of Wayne's non synthetic brushes with synthetic bristles, so I think that especially for the amazing versatility, they are well worth a splurge. To summarize, just impeccable, a new take to add to your collection or just as special if you are trying Wayne's brushes for the first time! Artistry at it's finest. You will enjoy these immensely, don't hesitate!14 found this helpful.Liza G. Feb 06, 2019
The best available!
I can't believe these haven't all sold out yet. I got my set today, and they are the best I own. I own hundreds of brushes and consider myself an expert on high quality synthetic makeup brushes.
At first, I was a bit surprised at the price as well, given the amount of brushes in the set. However, these are worlds apart from anything else on the market right now.
These do have a shorter handle which is nice for those who like to sit close to a mirror.
The quality surpasses Wayne's original animal hair set. There are a lot of little details, such as the name & brush numbers I believe are engraved. I can feel them when I run my finger over the handle, versus his first set which was a stamp that fades over time.
The quality, shape and functionality are the best of the best. I hope others invest in these to prove there is a real market for high-end synthetics.14 found this helpful.
