I really love Wayne Goss on youtube and based on that and the reviews... sounds like I can't go wrong. I just hope I picked up the right ones that I will love.
Brush 04 - a medium sized crease brush
Brush 06 - blending brush, but I also want to be able to use it for applying eye shadow to the lid
Brush 14 - elongated-shape and not too dense, I hope to like this for pigmented blush especially
Brush 11 - the largest "powder brush" by Wayne Goss... I mostly want it for that reason (powder) but it'll be nice to try for blush and foundation to see what it can achieve.
After 3 days of intensive research from reading the descriptions, reading a lot of blogs, watching a lot of videos on youtube... I decided on which ones I wanted to buy. I wasn't sold on every single brush of any of the sets (based on what they do and my own needs) so I went for a couple brushes that I feel more sure that I'd want to use often.
When I set up my low-buy for summer 2014 (June to mid-Sept) I gave myself a 120$ budget... When I started wanting these brushes, I gave myself a 200$ish budget, convincing myself by saying it's about the equivalent of buying one full set, but that I'd customize it myself... I'm proud to say that I purchased fewer brushes than I originally thought and it was 124USD for these. I'm sad that this is my whole summer's budget though!!! lol I have a feeling I'm going to fail... Whichever brush of these I didn't have an equivalent for, I'll re-give myself the amount as my summer budget. Better fail with limits than fail like crazy!
Have you tried these brushes, what did you think of them? Any link to a blog post or youtube video you made?
Thanks for reading!
