Wayne Goss #03, 04, 05, 17, 18, 19 Eye Brushes

Wayne Goss Brushes are, by and large, a good, solid range of brushes with usable shapes and sizes. I think the eye brushes are better than the face brushes, though the cheek and face brushes are still good, but the assortment of eye brushes has been more impressive. The price point across most of the brushes is comparable to mid- to high-end brands, and some of the eye brushes are more reasonable than you’d expect (cheaper than brands like MAC). What I personally enjoyed most was not just the quality of the brushes, but the shapes and sizes of the brushes, as I found myself reaching for and using them as part of a routine, not just for testing. The line is more traditional in its types of brushes offered, but a couple of brushes are more interesting. The only brush in this review that I had quality issues with was the #18, which felt poky on the lid. The #03, #04, and #19 are brushes that have found their way into my permanent stash, while #05 and #17 are nice, they aren’t shapes I personally reach for.

Real Techniques Bold Metals Brushes Reviews & Photos

Real Techniques Bold Metals Brushes ($15.99 to $25.99) are intended to be a premium range above the standard range of brushes that made the brand so popular. I don’t know that they’re really softer or more usable than their original brushes, which are more affordable. I think that they tried to create some more unique/interesting shapes, and as a result, I find that whether the good brushes are worth picking up depends on your needs and preferences even more so than usual. The only brush that I anticipate using going forward (now that I’m done testing them) is the #202 Angled Liner brush, but if I did more contouring, I would also consider the #301 Flat Contour Brush.

Chikuhodo GSN-04, GSN-08, GSN-11, GSN-16 Brushes Reviews & Photos

Chikuhodo GSN-04 Highlighting Brush ($64.00) is a medium-sized, domed brush that narrows as the base and flares upwards towards the upper third of the brush before tapering and rounding at the edge. It is made out of a mix of gray squirrel and goat hairs. The brush head is 37.5mm in length, 27mm in width and thickness at its widest point. It had a total length of 7.25 inches / 18.5 centimeters with a lightly pinched, metal ferrule. I think for most people, this is going to work better as a blush brush than a highlighting one, as it is larger than the average highlighting brush. I think it is too rounded and dense to be the best highlighting brush as well, but it does work for diffusing and blending out a highlight or for applying more of a highlighting blush where the area of coverage is larger. It is a moderately dense brush with light spring so it can be swirled and swept across the skin in all directions. The hair felt fairly soft, though at this price point, it could have been a bit softer, I think. For blush, it worked well for applying color, diffusing and blending out the applied color, and it made short work of the process.

MAC 126SE Split Fibre Large Face Brush Review & Photos

MAC 126SE Split Fibre Large Face Brush ($46.00) is a large, paddle-shaped face brush. It’s split in half, such that one half is made out of natural fibers and the other half is made out of synthetic fibers. The brush is flatter with a very rounded edge that flares upwards from the base. The brush head is 47mm in length, 39mm in width, and 20mm in thickness. It has a total length of 7.5 inches / 19 centimeters with a pinched, multi-colored ferrule. The brush is light-medium in density with a little flop towards the end, as the fibers are cut shorter on the exterior and left longer in the center. The synthetic side was soft and silky against the skin, while the natural side was moderately soft but I could feel some of the individual bristles.

MAC 125SE Split Fibre Dense Face Brush

MAC 125SE Split Fibre Dense Face Brush ($38.50) is a widened, dense face brush with two distinct sides–one with natural fibers and the other with synthetic fibers. The idea behind these split brushes is that the natural bristles give a “soft, diffused look” while the synthetic bristles “fuse colour onto skin.” The brush head is 25mm in length, 39mm in width, and 19mm in thickness. It has a total length of 6.5 inches / 16.5 centimeters with a pinched, multi-colored ferrule. The weighting is nice and it doesn’t feel too top-heavy nor lightweight.

MAC Wash & Dry Makeup Bag Review & Photos

MAC Wash & Dry Makeup Bag ($35.00) is a new, limited edition zippered, rectangular makeup bag that will be available at select MAC stores and online at maccosmetics.com beginning May 14th (stores on May 21st). It’s tapered so the bottom widens and flattens out, so the bag retains most of its shape even with nothing in it, which helps it stand up as well. The bag is 8 inches / 20 centimeters in length, 4.5 inches / 11.5 centimeters in height, and 2 inches / 5 centimeters in depth. The exterior is 100% PU (a poly synthetic leather), and the interior lining is 100% polyester, which is black in color.
