Crown Brush Haul

Hi, my name is Kat and I am a brush addict.

Seriously, I love brushes and can't get enough of them. Back in February, I did a Crown Brush haul, most of them were back up brushes to what I already have. I usually like to have at least two of the same brushes that I use every day to rotate. While I do a quick brush clean every day, I try very hard, but am not usually successful, to wash my brushes every week. With the brushes that are more dense, they don't always dry by the time I'm ready to use them the next day, which is why I like to have a 2nd set of brushes. It's also convenient for traveling because I can pack ahead the 2nd set and not worry about having to use it that same day and make sure that I remember to pack it before rushing out. I had made my first Crown Brush purchase back in 2011 and liked the ones that I purchased and have been using them on a daily basis that I finally made my 2nd purchase to buy the back ups.

In order from left to right:

Chisel Deluxe Powder Dome. At first I didn't like this brush but have come to love it for applying my face powder. It puffs out to a very full, round brush that it's like a powder puff. I use it like a powder puff and pat the powder on.

Tapered Duo Fiber Blush. This is something new that I didn't previously order. I haven't used it. yet although I do like duo fiber brushes a lot.

Chisel Blush. This is also something new. I haven't tried it yet.

Blending Fluff. I use this brush to apply a little color over concealer to set it instead of powder. It's one of my favorites.

Deluxe Round Crease. I use this brush to apply the deepest color to the outer 1/3 of upper eyelids. It is one of my staples.

Bullet Crease. This too, is a new brush. I've been using it to apply highlighter but I think that it might be a bit too big for that purpose. Will figure out some other way to use it.

I'm entering into my busy months at work so hopefully it won't interfere too much with blogging.

I've also been busy putting together items for my upcoming blog sale. Some things I'm on the fence on but trying to be rational about it too. I've kept some products just because it's something I want to have but I don't ever use so there's a tug-of-war going on inside of me on some items. Hopefully I'll be done gathering things up soon. Then it'll be picture taking and uploading. Whew!

I had the exact same round crease brush I bought from crown brush ages ago. The quality is good and it lasted me for almost 3 years (and counting) with good care.

hello kat the brush addict!! :)

can't wait for your blog sale to come up, would love to know what you include! Yes, photo taking, stock taking, and description are the hardest part...but do what has to be done ;)

@Cynthia--I'm impressed by the quality of Crown Brushes and think that they are actually quite reasonably priced. Glad to hear that your brush is still lasting.

@Jenni--Thanks! It's certainly time consuming but it's slowly coming along.
