CROWN BRUSHES

Wednesday, 27 February 2013

I've known about Crown brushes for a few years, I've seen them at IMATS and I always hear their name thrown around the beauty industry but for some reason I had it in my head that they were very expensive. I'm so pleased that the people at Crown got in touch because after giving these a go I can confirm they feel very expensive, but actually they are really affordable! 

It seems these days that people either use MAC or Real Techniques or a mix of both in my case. Crown has always been more of a makeup artist brand, but I'd highly recommend these to anyone who wants to invest in some good brushes. 

My favourites are the Mini Duo Fibre, which is only £6.99 and is perfect for cream highlighter, the contour brush which can also be used for blush and the eyeshadow brushes are all great. There is pretty much an exact dupe for the MAC 217 for only £5.76, which is amazing. 

I'm really impressed with them and I'll let you know how they wash when I get around to it. Have you tried any Crown brushes before?

  2. I haven't heard of them. At the moment I used Real Techniques and Nvey Eco brushes. What are they made from?

  4. I'd really like to have a duo fibre brush, although I don't really use a lot of brushes, this one seems perfect for me. Sounds a little weird, but I like to apply foundation with my fingers because it melts better into my skin. I wouldn't do it if I was wearing foundation every day, but I don't so :D haha.

    Great post!

  5. I see Crown Brushes on hautelook.com several times and have always been tempted, but never took the plunge and actually purchased them. I will definitely keep my eye out for another sale now. Thanks for the review.

  10. I've bought a couple of Crown brushes from Love Makeup before and found the bristles to be really stabby and course. As they're cheap maybe I'll try them again but not keen on the 2 I own.

  51. I bought a brush set and a duo fibre kabuki via hautelook, a few months back. For the brush set, there was a few fall out in the face brushes and some of the fluffier eye brushes when you first use them or wash them.

    Now the kabuki brush, that was a bad buy. It sheds everywhere, especially when you wash it.

    Hope this helps those thinking on buying them.
