Crown Brush 523 Purple HD Brush Set Review*

And here we have the last review from my Crown Brush haul. Today’s post features the 523 Purple HD Brush Set which also includes tweezers. Coloured brushes seem to be really on trend lately with all types of brushes popping up all over the place. These are extremely gorgeous, but nothing over the top which is nice.

First things first, I have saved my least favourite out of the three for last. I’ve tried to increase my use of these to hopefully feel a little better for them. Do I hate them? No. I find the nylon bristles to be too soft which I’m sure a lot of people will love, but I find it hard to apply a product when the bristles shoot out in different directions when you use it. This doesn’t happen if I I’m not in a rush and can take my time, as I find it better to be gentler and not go in with a heavy hand.

I do love these brushes for blending out, and find that they are amazing for that! The Chisel shadow brush is one of my favourites, as I find it easy to pile colour on with this one as it is a little more dense than the others, so building colour up with this, and blending out with the crease blender is really great, and they make a good duo.

I have got a good application with these brushes, I just find myself having to be more careful with what I’m doing. The Pro Powder Brush is a bit of a struggle. For me it’s a little too soft and not as dense as I like my powder brushes. I will say the tweezers are great, as they are precise and make the whole process easier and quicker.

They arrive beautifully packaged, in a pretty purple patent case. It’s slim and easy to take travelling, this is because it takes up no room. You get a medium-sized mirror in the case too, which is really handy.

In the set you receive:

One X Pro Powder Brush

1 X Tapered Blush

One X Deluxe Contour

1 X Chisel Shadow

One X Crease Blender

1 X Detail Liner

One X Mirror

1 X Purple Tweezers

One X Purple Patent Case

If you like your brushes extremely soft then you will love these, as they are great quality. They just aren’t my favourite and hey that’s okay as we all aren’t going to like the same thing.

Have you tried any brushes from Crown Brush?

Thank you for reading!

    These brushes look stunning! I’ve seen so many people review more colourful brushes and even though that’s amazing, I’m still in love with my simple brushes. Maybe try the big fluffy brush for setting your face with loose powder or if you ever want to bronze your body. I have one and it’s great for making sure I don’t get a white cast over my face while using loose powders xx Nikita

      They are really pretty! Colourful brushes seem to be taking over at the moment, but simple are great too. That’s a great idea, thank you for that, I’ll be sure to try that out xx

    The lilac colour on the handles and in the bristles of these brushes are gorgeous! I’ve never seen any brushes like this before. You never know, you may end up loving all of the brushes after using them for a while xx

    I’ve heard so many good things about the Crown Brushes, just haven’t had the chance to test them out yet!
    These look so pretty. Obviously you’re going to have some favourites out of the set, it’s hard to find brush sets that you will like every single brush of. Glad you do like the eyeshadow ones, then!

    These are so beautiful! I’m always a bit skeptical about pretty brushes though haha I think “can they actually be both pretty and provide good quality application?”

    • 18th September 2017 / 8:09 pm
