Hey Guys & Dolls!
So by now you know that I love the Wayne Goss brush line. LOVE! But there’s one brush I haven’t gushed too much about, because it wasn’t available so I didn’t want to be a tease, and that’s the holiday brush. Happily, it’s just relaunched at beautylish with free shipping worldwide!
The Holiday Brush is a large, pointed face brush perfect for everything from setting powder, to contour, blush & highlight! The tapered tip and precise placement of this brush are what makes it the perfect powder brush- it can glide around even the nooks and cranies of your face with ease! The ends hairs are left natural (never cut), which not only feels amazing, but it picks up just he right amount of product and then deposits it onto your skin beautifully.
I’ve loved this type of egg-shaped brush for years, and have versions from several brands, but since I bought this brush last year, I’ve barely touched the others. They don’t come close to comparing to the softness, quality, and expert way this brush picks up and places product. This brush is limited edition, so if you’ve been eyeing it get it while you can, you won’t regret it (just read the reviews on Beautylish).

I bought the Holiday Brush last year, and I can tell you that it’s held up beautifully, the hairs are still as soft as ever and I think I’ve only lost 3 in a whole year, which is like some sort of holiday brush miracle. After you wash and use it it does fluff up a bit compared to the brand new brush, but I like it better this way- you can use the tip for precision, the belly of the brush for placing, or blending powder. When using product on the tip you can customize the brush by adjusting your pressure to make it bigger or smaller. It washes and retains it’s shape beautifully, which isn’t something I can say of the other versions of this brush I’ve tried. Another thing I love is that this brush doesn’t “bleed” color every time I wash it- something that drives me bonkers about the MAC 138 brush. And if soft white goat hair is the thing your brush dreams are made of, it now comes in white. I need this right? PS- these make amazing holiday gifts (Feel free to email this blog to your Significant Other)
While we’re on the subject, I want to talk about a few of my other gotta-have-it fave brushes from Wayne Goss! Now that I’ve had some of these for over a year, I can confidently recommend these as my faves and brushes I use daily.
02- this one is great for wiping away fall out, setting the under eye, contour, highlight, and I especially love it with my Hourglass Ambient Light power. It’s like a mini version of the holiday brush.
06- I had to show three angles of this brush- it s an oval shaped flat brush with long hairs that make it great as both a shader and a crease defining blending brush. This one is so lovely and versatile, and I don’t have anything else quite like it.
07-this brush is really teeny tiny! It’s small size, shape, flatness, and the natural hairs make this my favorite lip brush. Even though synthetic brushes are *technically* better for cream products, natural seems to work better for me.
14- this brush though! When you first see it I know what you’re thinking- what’s this thin weird brush going to do for me? Plenty. This brush fluffs up a little bit with use- but it isn’t very dense, which makes it perfect for applying blush, bronzer or even your setting powder with a light hand.
17-this is my favorite brush for highlight or a wash of color on the lid. It’s wide enough to cover a large area in no time, but it’s thin like a shader brush and never picks up too much product.
18- this is literally one of the best shaders I’ve ever used. I feel like a broken record but it picks up product perfectly, and is an expert brush for both packing color on and blending.
19- Wayne Goss’s brush line has a lot of blending brushes- a lot. But this one is my favorite, especially for a lighter everyday eye. it’s just the perfect size to rock a few shades in my socket line and call it a day.
