Random, but not really, question. What are you ladies loving for cleaning makeup brushes? I use longwear foundation and its super stubborn to get out of my brushes. Which means I just keep buying new ones to avoid the mental task of getting the others cleaned lol. I won't tell you how many brushes are in my brush basket waiting to be cleaned *facepalm*
Right now I'm using a solid brush cleanser I got at Rite Aid a while back. (Do note it has a very strong scent (at least to me) at first.) Before that I was using the beautyblender solid cleanser.

Wowza! I missed this b/c we were posting at the same time. Glad you are both ok!
I’m glad you made it! I can’t comprehend functioning in extreme cold. I’m a warm weather gal through and through.
Day #4 housebound...and yes...cabin fever is definitely a thing!

I am so happy we went away when we did. Getting in 7 days of sunny warm weather a few weeks ago has kept me sane for the past week! Every day I have had to bundle up in serious layers to shovel, snow blow and convince puppy that she still needs to go outside to potty in sub zero temperatures...trust me, she was not having it...

I grew up east coast, so I can deal with severe winter weather...but I think hubs and I need to buy a house somewhere warm for wintering in our retirement years. ;)

I decided to skip, as I already went ahead and got the Sonia g brush set, and I got the WG holiday brush which is similar to the Fan like brush...smart of him to come out with a cruelty free option though.
I completely missed that boat on the WG holiday brush. Now I kinda wish I purchased one...chuckle.
p.s. I wanted to tell you I am loving Chikuhodo brush you sent me. :heart: x0x0x

Fantastic!!! lovely TF fragrances!
These will be the most expensive scents I have ever purchased. I fell in love with Creed White Amber last year, when I got a deluxe sample...but that $500 price tag is waaaay out of my budget. AND truth be told, it is a scent that does not last. I got TF samples a couple times from Sephora to be sure I truly loved them before purchasing. I know I will have no regrets with this splurge. :)

The holiday brush is coming back. I see it as coming soon on the site alone and in bundles.

I've been using African Soap as per Tarababyz and it is going well but for really stubborn stains I go with Cinema Secrets but I think that it is too harsh to use often but I guess with a brush conditioner it might be okay. Anyone else want to weigh in on the cinema secrets? I do need a refill though. I do think if you get the little one it is great for travel.

I'm so glad you are enjoying your new brush! I agree with you on the Creed scents, the ones I tried didn't really last that long except for Creed love in black. You made a really smart move on those TF scents, especially testing before buying. mOST OF THE tf scents are really lovely except some scents do not last very long! My Sonia g face Pro set has not been delivered yet, this Michigan weather, I too grew up back east but Jeez! this weather is just criminal lol!

Oh I have an African Soap bar at home. I should try that. I've heard the Cinema Secrets isn't good for synthetic brushes... it can make them melt so I've been terrified to try it with mine lol. It does clean really well though.

Oh oh! I completely spaced on remembering you are in MI too! How were things in your area? How about the gas/ turn the heat down alert?! Crazy biscuits. I do go back to work later this morning. Doing cardio right now. Thank goodness we have machines at home. Even our YMCAs have been closed, making hubs a lil stir crazy too. I'll be happy to get back in my routine.

Good to know. I hadn't worried about them with synthetics. I did love using it for travel. That little tin was quite handy and cleaning was quick and easy.

Has anyone tried the new Wayne Goss synthetic brushes? I finally saw one review on you tube and she thought they were decent. I don’t think I’d want the whole set. Maybe just one eye brush that i’d try for cream eye products because I’m not crazy about any of the brushes I have for that. If they are eventually sold as individuals I’d consider that.

Things were really crazy in my area too, I enjoyed the heatwave we had after the crazy cold weather. That was nice while it lasted. I finally got my Sonia G brushes and I love them!

I have it but I only used it yesterday and I didn't use them fully. Here's what I have to say so far. I didn't do a full face yesterday. I had to get out early so no eye makeup. I just decided to do concealer and powder foundation. I used the shadow brush for concealer. I thought I would use the pencil brush to get in the inner corner because I have a really hard time getting concealer in the inner corner but the flexibility of the brush made it so that I didn't nee the pencil brush for that. It applied the concealer ok but I thought I still like the Mac 270s I think for the concealer I use Mac Studio Fix Smooth something. I know the brush came out with the concealer but . . . the Mac brush does NOT get in the inner corners for me. I moved on to the powder brush. It is smaller or more narrow that the holiday or 00 brush but think more flimsy. Flimsy is not the word. ?????? Not as firm I guess. It applied the powder but I didn't like it as much as my normal routine which is using multiple brushes so there is that (Sonia G and Wayne Goss). I thought I wasn't getting enough coverage on my face which is funny because I usually like a light application but this was too light. I switched to the fan brush and that worked better for the powder foundation as far as depositing more color. Maybe the powder would be better for a finishing or setting powder. I used the fan brush for bronzer application which I liked. But I really liked how it applied highlighter. It applied and diffused the highlighter in one sweep. No back and forth blending needed. Which was good since I was in a rush. Plus, I think the shape and thickness of the fan is unusual to my collection. I didn't use the pencil brush.

I still want to see how these brushes work with cream products as I think this is how I will most likely use them. Also I want to use the eyeshadow brush with eyeshadow and play with the face brushes with other powder products in my collection.

Why did I buy these? ?????? Well, I wasn't sure I would at first but then I just became curious as they are Wayne Goss brushes and I usually like his products. I would have liked to see more unusual shapes but I do see that these were made for the cruelty free market. I do need more brushes for my cream products though. I have a Wayne Goss brush that I use daily for facial concealer and I do wonder if a synthetic would be better to use as I don't like washing it so much. Oh I did use the eye brush on that facial area but I didn't like it as much as the other Wayne Goss brush I use. I don't know if it was the synthetic fiber or the shape of the brush. I will try the powder or fan brush. Oh maybe the pencil and then blend with the powder. Oh too many steps. But I will try it.

So . . . jury is still out on this one. Well except for the fan. Love that one instantly. I will see if I will build up love for the others. That has happened with other brushes in his collection and Sonia G as well.

Thank you so much for sharing all of your thoughts. I also enjoy Wayne Goss and Sonia G’s brushes. I also feel that so many brushes came out at once and I’m trying to space out my purchases and make sure I’m really going to use and enjoy everything. But I’m also afraid of FOMO!!

According to Sonia G's instagram, very soon a new brush will be added to the collection along with an updated version of Sculpt Two.

And it seems like the other out of stock items will be restocked shortly after that.

I saw that. I wonder what they new one will be. I also noticed before she announced it on IG that in my order history my sculpt two was now listed as sculpt two (2018). I think she said the bristles on the new one will be a little longer. I was able to get the three brushes I was mostly wanting in yesterday's restock (Face One, Sculpt Four and Builder Two). I'm undecided between Builder Two and Worker Three.

Eye brushes or Face. I'm open
My favorite eye brush is Builder Pro. I like that it’s small and precise. Favorite face brush is harder to pick, they are all great, and they serve different needs... for all over powder I like the new mixed hair face pro... the fan brushes are great too but, for me, they took some getting used to. Kinky Sweat has some videos where she uses the brushes, I think they are pretty informative. I don’t think you can go wrong with a Sonia G brush, just picking one that meets your needs is the challenge.

Undecided b/c of your needs or not sure how the brushes compare?
