I’ve been meaning to write this review for weeks and am finally getting around to it!
I did a lot of research and looking on the forums about Crown Brush brushes as I was in need of some decent brushes that weren’t going to cost me the earth. There were a couple of negative reviews saying that they’re not up to “Mac standard”, but most people said thay are good quality and worth having. I figured I’d never know until I tried them so I bought the 23 Piece Professional Set for £60.50. 23 brushes for £60.50, you won’t get that at Mac ;-). Apparently, I heard on the forums that Crown Brush actually make brushes for the likes of Mac and Bobbi Brown, so they can’t be all that bad. One woman on a forum asked Crown which of their brushes are closest to Mac quality and they said the Studio sets. Might just be my next Crown Brush purchase
This Professional Set includes: Powder Dome, Chisel Powder, Tapered Blush, Angle Blush, Chisel Blush, LG Squirrel Shadow, Deluxe Oval Shadow, Mini Oval Shadow, Chisel Fluff, Oval Fluff, Sable Liner, Small Chisel Fluff, Deluxe Soft Fan, Angle Liner, Brow / Lash Groomer, Mini Oval Smudger, Pointed Liner, Flocked Sponge, Pro Spoolie, Sable Lip with Cover, LG Square Squirrel, Leatherine Snap Case.
So I’ve been using this set for about a month now, on myself, my sister and my niece when they came to visit. I’ve deep cleaned them a couple of times and quick cleaned them a couple of times and I haven’t noticed any major loss of hairs which is obviously a good sign. The blush, eye and powder brushes are nice and soft and the liner brushes a little firmer which is how I like them. There are a few brushes which I still haven’t used, and one or two that I’m not completely fond of so in the future I might buy each brush individually or since there are various sets I may try a different one for variety. The handles are comfortable to hold on each brush for when using them on myself and others and to be honest I really don’t have any complaints! The set comes in a roll-up case which is great for keeping everything where it should be and I think people who want some decent brushes for personal use and MUA’s that are just starting out could do a lot worse!
If you’ve tried brushes from the other sets I’d love to hear what you think about them!
