Crown Brushes Syntho Range

Wednesday, January 21, 2015
I am always surprised when my friends say they don't have any makeup brushes, even though they wear makeup often, although I have to remember that not everyone is a beauty blogger and as obsessed with makeup as the beauty community is! Makeup brushes are essential in my collection and makeup routine; I have tried brushes from Ecotools, Spectrum Brushes, Illamasqua, MAC, Real Techniques and cheaper, less well know brands but I haven't been as impressed with makeup brushes on first impressions as I have with these from Crown Brushes.

I was very kindly sent a range of brushes from the Crown Brushes Syntho range which features all synthetic brushes which as a vegetarian is an important point when I am buying and using brushes. I have six brushes to share my thoughts on; honesty as always, click here to check out my personal disclaimer. 

Firstly, the *Deluxe Powder Dome Brush (SS019, £15.99) which I have been using everyday since I received it for my translucent setting powders and mattifying powders. The brush is fantastic for powder as it doesn't cake on the product and it buffs on mineral foundation for seamless light coverage. 

The second face brush is the *Deluxe Flat Bronzer Brush (SS014, £16.99) which I first used for foundation as it looks like a flat top kabuki brush and it is great for foundation however the bristles seem to soak up some of the liquid foundation. I have also used it as it was intended, for bronzer, and it works well. At first I thought the brush would be too big for bronzer but it is a great size and it blends powder products effortlessly. 

Now onto the eyeshadow and liner brushes, I have been using the *Blending Fluffy Brush (SS021, £4.99) the most as it is a fantastic, multi-use brush. I've been using to apply as wash of shadow to the eyes, to blend or to apply my brow bone highlight. I also think it would be great for concealer. As the brush is flat it applies shadow well without fallout but it is also fluffy so it can blend the edges quickly and easily; for the price and quality it is a bargain.

Next up, the *Precision Crease Brush (SS020, £3.99) which I haven't been using a lot to apply shadows to the crease as I don't really create a lot of cut crease or smoky looks but I have been using it to apply my inner corner highlight and to blend shadows along the upper and lower lash lines. As it is tapered it can get into small areas but it is also soft and doesn't really drag the skin. 

Another makeup brush staple is the *Deluxe Oval Shadow Brush (SS011, £3.59) which again is a fantastic multi-use brush. It is great for applying shadow all over the lid, especially darker shades as it is flat and fairly dense so it really packs on the colour. Such a fantastic price for a useful little brush.

Last but not least, the *Deluxe Eyeliner Brush (SS008, £2.29) which I have only used with my Clinique Gel Liner so far but it applied the creamy liner so well. The bristles are so fine, I can get such a thin precise wing with this brush; it has definitely started my obsession again with gel liner. To see the results with the brush, check out my instagram: heathernixon4

Overall, I love these brushes, I've been using them constantly since I received them earlier this month. The price are so reasonable, in my opinion, especially considering the fantastic quality. My favourite brushes are definitely the SS021, SS008 and the SS019 brushes. I have only spot cleaned them but so far so good!

Have you tried any Crown Brushes or their makeup/accessories?

  10. I love that Crown Brush is good quality without being overly expensive - I only have a dual-ended brush from them that I got in a subscription bag that I forget to use pretty often because I lay them flat instead of in my brush jar, but whenever I do I always wonder why I keep forgetting to check out their other brushes :P
