New In: Crown Rose Gold Brushes + Lip Stain

Thursday, June 22, 2017
I have so many makeup brushes but none quite a pretty and photogenic as this set that I was kindly set from Crown Brushes a couple of weeks ago. Rose gold makeup brushes are a beauty bloggers dream! I have been seeing this style of brush on Instagram for a while now and I really wanted to give them a go as the shape is so unique and very different to anything else I have in my collection.

*Crown Brushes Rose Gold Full Face Contour Set (£29.99)
The set contains three gorgeous rose gold brushes that are cutely free and suitable for vegans to use which is fantastic! There are three sizes in this set which are designed for highlighting and contouring but I've been using them for so much more! I have been using the largest brush as a foundation brush as it's so large and makes applying and blending my foundation so quick and easy; I've also been using it for primer and powder too as it's so large it applies and blends so much quicker than my regular smaller brushes.
The medium sized brush is the perfect size for contouring as it fits into the hollows of my cheeks and along my jaw line perfectly. I use it with my NYX blush in Taupe as well as some of my more cool toned and ashy bronzers. It blends my powder contouring powders and blushers effortlessly, unlike some of my other brushes, it places and blends the contour exactly where it needs to be. I think this brush, or this set in general, would be perfect for makeup beginners as they make makeup application so quick, easy and fuss free.

Also the handles of the brush are easy to hold and they have a bit of flexibility to them which means that you don't use too much pressure and the handles won't break. The bristles for all three brushes are so incredibly smooth and soft but they're densely packed too so precise application and blending is so easy.
Lastly, the third and smallest brush in the set is what I've either been using for my highlight, concealer under my eyes or for applying powder to smaller areas such as to set my concealer. It's a really handy little brush that has so many uses, even blending the edges of my contour or precise foundation/concealer application.

I love this brush set, I've been using it every time I apply my makeup and I cannot recommend it enough. I hadn't tried this paddle style of brush before and I love it - the set is definitely worth checking out especially as the brushes are so versatile. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.
*Crown Pro Long Lasting Matte Lip Stain (£9.99 - LLS19 Caliente)
I have been loving liquid lipsticks and stains at the moment, I've tried quite a few recently and this one is definitely one of my new favourites. I like the packaging and I love the rich classic red shade! The formula is quite dry but it isn't flaky or very drying like others I've tried.

The stain is so pigmented, it applies easy and it's easy to correct mistakes with concealer and a small eyeliner brush or to just neaten up the edges. It feels comfortable on the lips for the most part and it lasts really well through out the day and through eating. It's not the most long lasting stain I've tried but it's pretty fantastic. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.
