Crown Brushes

IMG_5818

This isn’t really ‘splurge week’ exclusive as Crown brushes are actually very reasonably priced (especially the selection I have here) but I thought I’d include it anyway.

Jumbo Chisel Powder – £13.99 here / Tapered Duo Fibre Blush – £10.49 here / Oval Shadow – £2.99 here / Angled Blender – £2.59 here

Other than Real Techniques (review here) most of my brushes came in generic sets, they’re all the same cookie cutter shapes and I wanted something different. Browsing the selection online is pretty overwhelming, there are a lot to choose from and even those I picked aren’t quite what I’d expected but I love that they’re unique within my collection and the two face brushes have become every day staples. I’m pretty heavy handed with my blush so a smaller duo fibre brush such as this had been on my wishlist for a while, this is an absolute gem.. in fact I may have to buy a spare. The Chisel Powder is also great because although it’s big and fluffy it’s also flat which gives a narrow edge with which you can add detail like contour/highlight. They’re all fairly short handles (by comparison to MAC/Sigma etc) so this in particular will be a good travel multi-tasker. The eye brushes are interesting but I haven’t found a regular use for them yet.. I’m working on it.

I did experience some shedding with the powder brush at first but since washing it it seems to be fine

    These sound really good, although I’m happy with my Real Technics brushes at the moment, so I don’t think I’ll be buying any :)xo

    the tapered blush brush sounds really useful, and they look like good value for money! I need to find some new eyeshadow brushes, since mine are all just cheap ones that are now falling to bits 🙁

    Oooh I love hearing about new brushes I can add to my list. Would the eyeshadow brush perhaps work well as a concealer brush? It looks like it might from the photo…
