Before I started blogging I was never a brush geek – I’ve learned so much over the years from other bloggers and vloggers about the importance of the right tools and they definitely make a difference. Putting on make-up is such a pleasure and if all the tools are giving you the best possible result, the pleasure is double.
Wayne is a well established, credible vlogger and a working make-up artist, too, and he is one of the first vloggers I ever saw. I don’t watch many vlogs but I do watch his – he’s punchy and tells it how it is, which obviously I like ;-).
The little brush on the end is where I’ve lost my heart! It’s No. 8 (£13) and is for lining. All the brushes are genuine quality but like everything, you probably don’t need the whole kit (if you do, its £140).
No.8 above is my top pick – a really beautiful lining brush that grips the product and gives a perfect line.
You can temper your lines to thick or thin – however you like really but I know this is the one I will use and use.
That said, No.4 (Medium Crease) and No. 6 (Blending) (kinda wish they had names like eye colours or lipsticks do) are also my top picks. The difference in pick-up is significant compared to some of my other brushes (I’ve been faffing about all morning with these and others) and while handle thicknesses vary, with these it’s like holding your favourite pencil – just feels right. You can tell with the entire collection that it is make-up artist led, because everything about it is right (same with the Charlotte Tilbury collection – when a real user makes a product it is tangible) – the brushes are not cheap – prices vary from £13 to £30 but unless you are a make-up artist or particularly heavy-handed brush user, you probably have a brush for life. They’re soft – but not so soft they splay – and deliver product to skin without dropping.Wayne Goss The Collection
Needless to say, the pre-order has sold out already but they’ll be back in stock on September 24th – mark your diaries because they will just go! You can find them at Love Make-up HERE.
I’ve been excited all week to see these and now they’re here they haven’t disappointed in the slightest. It’s a big BBB recommend from me.

I love his videos! Can’t believe his brushes aren’t even out yet and they are sold out! That makes me want to try them even more!!
I love him… so honest! His brushes are on my list for sure.
I’d love the crease brush, it looks lovely!
I really want to get my hands on these!
Surprised that my comment (which wasn’t abusive, just not very flattering of Mr. Goss) didn’t make it. Jane?
I don’t really feel comfortable letting through comments like that about someone else.. fine if you want to have a go at me (well, not fine, but you know what I mean ;-)) – I think if you want to pass on those views to him you should do it to him directly and not via me. I have never met Wayne and don’t know him (other than brief interaction on Twitter) but the post was more about the brushes which are genuinely great and not about the person. I do hope you understand and I thank you for taking the time to comment.
Thanks for replying. I understand where you’re coming from. I’ve never met him either and I am basing my views purely on his online personality. I’m generally not nasty about bloggers, especially since I realise what guts it takes to put yourself out there and be judged on every single thing you say (or don’t!). I do however feel that differing views should have a place to be aired; a lot of people moderate their blogs (understandably) to avoid negativity but unfortunately this gives rise to chat forums like gurugossip where most people get really down and dirty because they feel they can’t say a negative word (not necessarily nasty, mind) to anyone because their comments are always moderated. Anyway, thanks for your response; I enjoy your blog!
I do understand what you are saying.. having recently made an (unwelcome) appearance on GG it’s pretty hard to hear.. but then I think that maybe it’s better in that kind of place – I would feel embarrassed letting that kind of vitriol through about other people on my blog. I have to say though, nasty as it is, there are some home truths there, and I have taken learnings from it – trying to do better swatches and fuller reviews. Ultimately, you just can’t please everyone.
