Crown Brush HD Brush Set w/ Mirror and Tweezers Photos & Review #CrownBrush

Press Sample

Crown Brushes are known for their brushes made with high-quality synthetic fibers. Available now for purchase is a set that they state is “Perfect for applying High Definition cosmetics, liquids, creams, and powders.” - the Crown Brush HD Set w/ Mirror and Tweezers.

This set comes available in three shades – Purple, Orange and White.  For review purposes I was sent the Purple shade, which was likely the shade I’d have picked anyway since it’s so girly and fun.  (I don’t know why, but I tend to always gravitate towards prettier makeup brushes!)

Crown Brush HD Set w Mirror and Tweezer SetIncluded in this set:

  • Detail Liner
  • Chisel Shadow
  • Crease Blender
  • Deluxe Contour
  • Tapered Blush
  • Pro Powder
  • Tweezers

The quality of the brushes is very nice and they’re wonderfully soft.  The two that will get the least use from me are the Detail Liner brush (it’s a little too long and slack for me to work with to get an even and perfect line) and the Crease Blender (a little to big at the top for my crease area and too fluffy).  Other than that, I can see myself including these pretties in my travel case frequently.

Because this is the purple set the case is a matching purple zipper case with a slot holder for each tool and a mirror.  Excellent for travel or for a makeup lover who is just starting their collection and needs the basics.

Awhile back Make Up For Ever released their line of Artisan brushes and I introduced you to a few from the collection.  I just had to go out and buy one particular brush that I had my eye on to add to my collection – the 234 Angled Shader Brush.

A dense, angled brush to apply eye shadow evenly.

The unique shape of this brush makes it ideal for even and consistent eye shadow application. It is easy for beginners to use, and a must-have for professionals.

Becca The One Perfecting Brush Photos & Review #BeccaTheOne

Press Sample/Affiliate Links

Is it really possible for one brush to do it all?  Becca says that it is, and has created The One Perfecting Brush to cut makeup application in half by replacing 10 tools: foundation brush, powder brush, contour brush, bronzer brush, stipple brush, blush brush, fan brush, concealer brush, kabuki and sponge.

Becca the one perfecting brush packagingbecca the one perfecting brush backWhat Sephora says about Becca The One Perfection Brush:

What it is:
A true beauty multitasker, this patent-pending brush cuts makeup application time in half by replacing 10 other brushes and tools.

What it does:
From start to finish, primer to powder, The One Perfecting Brush can be used with liquids, creams, powders and anything in between. Non-porous, high-quality goat hair allows product to sit on top of bristles rather than absorbing, ensuring a seamless application with no wasted product. It can be used effectively as a foundation brush, powder brush, contour brush, bronzer brush, stipple brush, blush brush, fan brush, concealer brush, kabuki, or sponge.

The bristles are packed in a 3.5 inch horizontal design allowing you to effortlessly and evenly cover larger or smaller surface areas. The density of the brush creates a smooth, even, and airbrushed application every time, taking the guesswork out of brushwork. Flat edges fit the linear contours of your face, while curved corners allow for targeted, more precise application. Long, flexible bristles make a variety of application techniques possible including: targeted application, stippling, blending, contouring, and highlighting.

What else you need to know:
The bristles are free of dye, ensuring they will not lose shape or softness over time, and the unique shape of the handle and soft-touch finish provide complete control during application, allowing you to create your desired look.

becca the one perfecting brushThis brush is firm and sturdy, but at the same time is a little fluffy and very soft.  It’s definitely usable with foundations and liquid, but I much prefer it for powder formula.  I use this brush daily for my bronzer, contour, blush and highlighting and it allows me to move a lot quicker from one into the other, and blending is seamless.  For blush, do note that you need to be careful that you aren’t applying to too large of an area.  I recommend swirling just one side of the brush into your blush to apply at the desired area.

My OCD honestly won’t let me use this brush daily for an entire application process of makeup.  I’d have to spot clean it in between products and deep clean in between uses.  It just feels like a lot.  Cost wise it’s still a good deal because I’d use it for bronzer, blush, highlighting and contour.  So it’s 4 brushes in one for me.

Which is your favorite way to use this brush?

Becca The One Perfecting Brush retails for $49.00 and is available at Sephora.

Of all of the exquisite beauty products that Make Up For Ever has out there, you may have often wondered why there is no line of brushes.  Well, perfection is a process.  A five year process, if you want to get technical.

Why so long?  Creator & Artistic Director Dany Sanz tested a variety of synthetic fibers that mimic the silky softness of natural hair and also consulted with brush manufacturer Raphael on the island of Mauritius to create specialized brushes that require unparalleled craftsmanship.  In short, the construction of each brush involved 25 unique stages and was hand-crafted by a total of 30 people from start to finish.

Released this Fall is a line of seventy-six (76) cutting-edge brushes – the most expansive luxury brush collection that is currently available.  Brushes are an artist’s most vital tool, and Dany Sanz has made sure that these brushes will meet the needs of professional makeup artists as well as the every day consumer.

IMG_5848The brushes are categorized into four areas – 100s for complexion, 200s for eyes, 300s for lips and 400s for artistic (specially designed for professionals).  The range is broken down further depending on textures or product type, such as wavy or straight fibers, depending on the required use.  Straight fibers allow for more generous and precise application, while wavy bristles are more splayed, which provide a lighter and freer application.  I have 10 of them to show you today, with many more on my wishlist!
