Beautylish & Wayne Goss: The Collection

4:25 PM


YouTube makeup artist Wayne Goss is launching his new brush collection exclusively in the US on Beautylish tomorrow (September 12, 2013).


I haven't seen these brushes in person but judging from the photos these look as if they're a good quality brush.

Price: $210

Nils, co-founder of Beautylish, did email me a bit more info to share. The collection will be available for PRE-ORDER tomorrow and those who sign up for early access will be given first dibs to PRE-ORDER. Later in September the brushes will be launched to the general public and at that time individual brushes will be made available for sale.

There are only eight brushes in this collection and each brush was handmade in Kumano, Japan by Japanese craftsmen. The handles are made from Hornbeam, which is a type of hardwood. I'll be honest, I've never heard of Hornbeam before and the small amount of research I did on it appears that this is a very popular type of tree in Japan. It appears to be part of the Betulacae family which includes the Birch tree. The bristles are made from animal fur but are "sourced 100% cruelty-free". I have to say I'm really impressed that so much thought went into creating and crafting these brushes.

If purchased individually the brushes will cost $224. If purchased as a set it's $210 which is a $14 savings.

Now here's something to consider if you're on the fence about purchasing the brushes. These brushes most likely are a limited item and once sold out that's it there is no more. Last year Beautylish had launched Billy B. brushes which were not only exclusive to Beautylish but also limited. By the time my birthday last year rolled around the collection had sold out so I couldn't get my hands on it.

So what are your thoughts? Are you considering purchasing these brushes or are you passing?

Edit: Nils replied with this, in regards to the bristles material:
Hi, they're all natural fiber but vary by brush. The bristles were chosen for the application and are 100% cruelty free.

The sooner people pre-order the sooner they'll receive the brushes similar to pre-ordering for iPhone.
