If you missed part one of the review, it is here.
Today I’ll be reviewing the eye brushes from the Crown Brush Studio Pro set 626. I had to guess which type of fibre / hair was used for the brushes (if I am wrong, please do let me know so I can correct the info) – based on this page from the Crown Brush Australia site. Both the UK and Australian Crown Brush websites are so much better than the U.S. and Canadian sites.
First we have the pro blending crease brush, it is a natural hair brush, most likely a natural goat fibre.
I used it yesterday, so the dark tip is actually eyeshadow, not the actual fibres. I love this one, I’ve used it several times since getting this set.
Up next is the precision brush. I think that this one is a natural goat hair brush.
This one is great for smudging shadow / liner, or for laying down the outer v.
Next is the pro blending fluff brush. It is a goat / sable hair mix.
This one is so soft and fluffy (in a good way), it makes blending so much easier.
Next is the oval concealer brush. I’m not 100% sure if this one is red sable or if it is synthetic – the bristles are soft, yet firm.
It is for applying concealer, primer, or cream shadows. I think that it is more likely to be synthetic than sable since on the website it says that synthetic hair brushes are best for liquids and creams. I’ve only tested this one with concealer, and yesterday morning I accidentally used it with a loose eyeshadow pigment. (It worked great by the way, haha!)
Next is the angled liner brush. It is very soft, I think that this one is synthetic.
Great for eyeliner, or applying eyeshadow wet as an eyeliner. I’ve only used this once since I usually either use my pencil liner or my liquid liner that comes with its own brush.
This one would be great for using your eyeshadow wet as a liner. I haven’t actually used this one yet.
The brush roll is faux leather which means that it is super easy to keep clean, you can just wipe it with a damp cloth. It has slots to hold all eleven brushes, with a protective flap that fold over the bristles when the roll is closed.
I don’t store my brushes in the roll – I have pretty Ikea containers for storage, and a Benjabelle brush tree for when I’m cleaning and drying my brushes, but the brush roll will be so great when travelling because it will keep them protected in my luggage.
Final verdict: I’m really glad that I took a chance and ordered this brush set. The price and quality are great. I’m probably not going to use the pointed liner brush all that much, but the rest of the brush set I know that I will definitely make use of. I only have two complaints about this set, the first being that I wish that it had come with an insert that explained what each brush was for and what type of bristles was used in each brush instead of having to look it up and figure it out. The second is that I wish that this set had a fan brush. Not a deal breaker for me since I know that I’ve lived this long without a fan brush, so I’m sure that I’ll survive a little longer without one!
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
