Wayne Goss The Air-Brush

In practice: I typically bathe my brushes prior to first use. The hair of the Air-Brush fluffed up a tad (less tongue-like), but it's still not as splayed out as the SUQQU Cheek or the Chikuhodo x Beautylish Cheek. It's great for precision placement of medium pigmented products. Since its hairs are pressed so tightly together, it still picks up a decent amount of product (for squirrel).
I tried using the brush as Wayne instructed in all different manners. I love the AB for setting my undereyes (actually I use it for setting all small areas of my face). Since it's blue squirrel, its not pokey at all. It doesn't/can't cake up setting powder.
For blush, I find that using a patting and sweeping motions is the most effective practice with this brush. It's decent at blending out edges (not the best). It's good at lay down but not at diffusing edges.
For contour, since the brush is squirrel, the product has to be decently pigmented. I've tried using the CT Bronze and Glow like Wayne does in his video, but for the life of me, I can't seem to make the brush pick up as much pigment as Wayne does. I moved on to the KA Sculpting Powder and the AB was great at creating the basic shape of contour that I wanted. However, as I mentioned above, I'd need another brush to diffuse/blend the edges to make it look less harsh.
For highlight, the AB is lovely. I love how precise I can be with highlight placement. I typically use the Hakuhodo J4004 fan brush and haphazardly place highlight everywhere, but sometimes I don't want a completely glittery face hah.
If I could change anything, I'd have a less pinched ferrule in order to have an airier brush. I'd also want a heavier handle and an embossed logo (instead of the current laser printed one).
Overall, I really enjoy the Air-Brush. For my purposes, it's extremely functional. On it's own, it's not perfect, but with help, it can be!
