Project Focus 10 Collab – Week 2 – Wayne Goss Foundation Brush

Hello, hello!  In case you missed it, I’m doing the Project Focus 10 collab with Ingrid from Curly Sping Blossom, Stashy from Stash Matters, and Joy from Styled with Joy. Here’s the lowdown on the Project Focus 10 collab:

10 different products that have been forgotten or neglected, or that we just want to use up, that have not been reviewed on our blogs before (but are still on the market). Over the course of 10 weeks  we will make an effort to try to use them, and review one of the products weekly (every Monday), and update on our progress on each of the 10 products over the 10 week period.

I’m back to review one of the items from the Project 10 Focus Collab, and update you on my progress on the remaining items. Today I’m reviewing the Wayne Goss Brush 01.

Wayne Goss Brush 01

Here’s what is says on the Beautylish website (the only place I believe that you can buy the Wayne Goss brushes):

Brush 01 is perfect for foundation, it’s about 5mm longer than a typical stippling brush to allow for gentle blending that won’t pull the skin.

These brushes are so beautiful with their glossy black hornbeam handles and brass ferules. Each brush is handcrafted in Japan.

Wayne Goss Brush 01

My experience: I know that this is a foundation brush, but I haven’t been using it to apply foundation because when I do, I end up with a streaky application. Instead, I’ve been using it for blending and buffing out concealer daily – especially since I’ve had to use a LOT more concealer than usual thanks to my unfortunate reaction to the Hard Candy Primer last week. It works amazing for undereye concealer as well! The bristles are firm yet soft, and densely packed. I haven’t had any bristle loss when washing it. All in all a gorgeous luxury brush.

Update on the remaining products:

1. Hard Candy Primer – reviewed last week, will never use again after my bad reaction.

2. Urban Decay Naked 3 palette – used two times

7. Not Your Mother’s Way to Grow Conditioner – used twice

Overall, I think that I made mostly good progress this week and managed to use everything except for the false lashes and the reaction inducing primer.

Project Focus 10 Collab, Week 1 – Review of Hard Candy Primer

Hello, hello!

Reporting in with my progress for the Project Focus 10 collab that I’m doing with Ingrid from Curly Sping Blossom, Stashy from Stash Matters, and Joy from Styled with Joy. Here’s the lowdown on the Project Focus 10 collab:

10 different products that have been forgotten or neglected, or that we just want to use up, that have not been reviewed on our blogs before (but are still on the market). Over the course of 10 weeks  we will make an effort to try to use them, and review one of the products weekly (every Monday), and update on our progress on each of the 10 products over the 10 week period.

Here’s my review of the Hard Candy Sheer Envy Perfecting Primer. On the back of the tube it says:

Face primer evens complexion, fills in lines and wrinkles. Silky smooth primer creates a flawless canvas for even makeup application while extending the wear of makeup. Apply with fingertips onto the face and gently blend into skin. Let it set and follow with makeup.

Hard Candy Primer Perfecting

My experience: This primer is a whitish gel type formulation and it goes on silky and smooth. But I found that my foundation applied a streaky in places over the primer (and normally it applies without streaking). It made my skin look like it had dry patches in places where I did not. Within a few hours of applying this primer and makeup my skin started to feel a little itchy and irritated in places, so I washed it off because it felt like the start of a reaction. What I had originally thought were the start of an allergic reaction (red welts), rapidily turned into several painful pimples across my chin, and one on my cheek near my nose! I rarely get breakouts, so this really not good! I don’t think that I want to risk using this primer and having the same thing happen again! This is not the product for me and my weirdly sensitive (and sometimes allergic) skin.

Make-up:

1. Essence Lash Mania Mascara – used once

2. Urban Decay Naked 3 palette – used several times (at least four times, maybe five)

3. Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer – used twice

Make-up Tools:

4. Georgie Beauty False Lashes and Adhesive – did not use

5. Wayne Goss Brush 01 (Foundation Brush) – did not use

Haircare and Bodycare:

6. Not Your Mother’s Way to Grow Long and Strong Shampoo – used twice

7. Not Your Mother’s Way to Grow Long and Strong Conditioner – used twice

8. Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream – used daily

9. Living Proof Prime Style Extender – used twice

So I think that I made mostly good start to Project Focus 10, except for the skin reaction to the primer, and not using either of the make-up tool items even once. I’ll be back with the new review and update on my progress with the Project Focus 10 collab on Monday, February 1st (not counting my regular posts on Wednesday and Friday).
