I decided to combine my August and September brush purchase because I wanted to try out a new line of brushes and knew that I would be purchasing more than one brush. This new line (new to me) is Crown Brush, which I first heard about from Miss Kei Kei's blog in this post.
Crown Brush has a wide array of brushes with 15 different lines. I chose 6 different brushes from 4 lines. I also picked up a package of Mini Curved Spatulas, which are the exact same spatulas that Sephora uses.
From left to right: Perfectly Pink Blending Fluff, Perfectly Pink Deluxe Round Crease, Duo Fiber Deluxe Shadow, Luna Badger Deluxe Crease, Italian Badger Bullet Crease and Italian Badger Chisel Deluxe Powder Dome.
The Italian Badger Chisel Deluxe Powder Dome is really thick and full. When I washed it, some bristles fell out, which did not surprise me because it is so thick. Even after drying, a few more fell out but it hasn't shed any more since. I think that at the most one dozen bristles fell out. It also had a funky smell when wet--kind of the way a wet animal smells but using it, I haven't noticed the scent. I haven't had any other shedding problems with the other brushes. It is quite big and fluffy but slightly prickly at first use. With continued use, it's been getting softer.
The Duo Fiber Deluxe Shadow brush is wider and bigger than I usually like to use as an eyeshadow brush but it works well if I use it to apply eyeshadow over my entire eyelid, from lashline to brow bone. It's a little too large for me to use as a regular eyeshadow brush, but it could just be because I have asian eyelids which do not have widely creased eyelids. I've been finding that I like Duo Fiber brushes more and more as I'm using shadows that are much softer and more pigmented.
The two brushes from the Perfectly Pink line are my favorites. Although I had originally planned on using the Blending Fluff to blend my eyeshadow colors together, it is is much bigger than what I normally use to blend. It does work really well with doing a light application of setting powder under my eyes.
As for the other 2 brushes, I haven't really used them consistently to be able to do a proper review of them.
Overall, I think that these brushes are of really nice quality and at very reasonable prices. Shipping is quite reasonable too. I had a really nice experience placing my first order with Crown Brush. I had a problem when I tried to check out so I called their customer service and the problem was fixed quickly. Shipping was also very quick. It took no more than a week from the time I placed the order till I received them. I will definitely be ordering more brushes from Crown Brush.
