The cost is $241. I have the original Anniversary set. Not sure there are enough changes to warrant a second purchase. Brush 8 is Wayne’s first synthetic, apparently.

Beautylish has such wonderful CS. I so appreciate that they can text you for early access (which I used to pre-order yesterday). My set arrives tomorrow. I’m always so impressed by them.

Oh and I love that you can break it down into three payments with them. I always use that option with nice brushes and it makes such a difference to be able to pay over time and still get expedited shipping.

Not sure I see what I would call a push liner, in the pic. That infinitesimal one is the perm collection does pretty well, which doesn’t mean I won’t get a Zoeva backup. S.t. you do 2 colors that require ‘pushing,’ AIR? If #8 is synthetic, maybe a good one for CP? Always interested in the Waynes, but more likely to get them individually. I find the Zoevas to be far less prone to kick up, though. The shadow seems to trap in the brush a bit better than the Waynes, which always leave s.t. on the pan surface. Not that i’m whining; the WGs feel as if they were made in Shangri La.

Probably not getting this set even though I think it is a beautiful set. I am looking at his eye set for myself. I am currently weighing the differences between the WG set and other higher end brands, such as Hakuhodo, Sonia G, etc. I am looking for a few eye brushes for hooded eyes. I purchased the face set and the eye set for my daughter for Christmas 2016 and she loves them. I just want to make the right decision so if anyone has any of the high end brushes for eyes that work really well for smaller, hooded eyes, and could make suggestions for me to check out, I would appreciate it. One reader recommended the WG eye set so that is why I started looking at WG. Thank you.

I have partially hooded eyes but not sure if they are small or not but I’m kind of a small person. I love haukahodo and the Goss brushes also. haukahodo are the best but Goss are a hair under them in quality and much cheaper.

Thank you, Janine. I don’t want to go with a brand just because it is expensive if I can get decent quality for less. So far it seems like the WG brushes will work for me. Now trying to decide if I should buy the eye set or individuals where I could pick up duplicates of the ones I would use the most. Not sure I would use the pusher brush much.

Deborah — disclaimer I’m no expert on brush’s I actually resisted for quite awhile on buying nice ones. Makeup is expensive who wants to spend $ on brushes? Once I did ..wow it makes such a difference! I have partial hoods and the fluffy ones make blending a dream.

You might check out Smith brushes too they are excellent! They are http://www.smithcosmetics.com their blush brush is $32 and very good. I got that then bought the eye set. You can use PayPal and no interest for 6 months for over $99. Beautylish has the 3 fex payments. haukahodo shipping is $9 and the eye brushes are $19-25.

I picked up two WG brushes from his second collection at Christmas – 19 and 20 – specifically because of all the reviews and WG himself stating they were made for hooded eyes. I’m not a guru, but simply an enthusiast. It took a couple of tries to get used to them because they glide like butter and I felt like I was learning how to use a brush all over again.

The absolute visible difference to not only me but my husband in my application and quality has been super exciting. I’m able to do more complex looks like halo eyes and cut creases – kryptonite for us hoodies – and they look amazing. I went ahead and picked up WG 16 a couple weeks ago because I was so impressed. If you’re looking to try them, ask your daughter to borrow them for a couple of days =D If you have really small eyes, I’d get 20 first, as its the smaller of the two and is fantastic for our wonky outer v’s and creating a new crease without it taking up the entire lid.

They do stain because they are white and undyed, but I love the look personally. I picked up Sonia G’s 34 brush (small fan) and have been enjoying that for inner corner accents as well as brow bone highlight application – super light touch but they truly do carry a lovely amount of product.
