Whenever I head out for an overnight or weekend trip, I dread packing my brushes. I'm so used to having my full arsenal at my fingertips and it can be tough to narrow it down to just a few. That's why I've been loving this six-piece brush set from Crown Brush that I received from iFabbo to review - it has everything I could possibly want in a super travel-friendly zip case (including a mirror & tweezers). Hello, convenience!
The set includes:
-Small contour brush
-Fluffy blending brush
-Flat shader brush
You can pretty much accomplish any makeup look using these six basic brushes. Aside from being an ideal beauty travel buddy, this would also be great if you are just recently getting into makeup and looking for a compact and comprehensive brush set. I know when I first got into makeup I bought a whole bunch of MAC brushes (which are fantastic), but they are expensive - this whole set currently retails for $27.95 which truly is an absolute steal.
As far as quality goes, these brushes feel very soft against the skin and really pick up and apply product well. The small contour brush is probably my favorite of the set because it really is perfect for applying bronzer into the hollows of my cheekbones to get that really defined look. Before owning this set, I didn't have anything in my collection which accomplished this as well as this brush does.
Two things I wasn't crazy about: a) the color - I am not an orange fan at all. Luckily this set comes in white & purple also, but I didn't have a choice as to which color was sent to me to review, and b) the tweezers kind of suck. I'm used to Tweezerman tweezers which I have not talked about nearly enough on my blog - however I now appreciate them so much more in comparison to the ones in this set. The Crown Brush tweezers will certainly work in a pinch (pun intended), but they are not the best in terms of really gripping those stubborn stray hairs.
I definitely recommend this product if you're looking for an easy travel set or a basic starter brush set. It's always nice to have those items you can throw in your bag & go without having to think too hard - all the work is already done for you!
