My First CrownBrush Collection

CrownBrush C405, C441 & C463 Brushes £8.29 to £1.99 - I am always on the hunt for better (but cheaper) brushes and after reading so many raves reviews about so many different CrownBrushes I just had to take the plunge, but when I say plunge it wasn't exactly a deep one as the most expensive brush that I purchased (The C405 Angle Contour Blush Brush) was only £8.29! It is probably my second favourite brush now out of my entire collection (losing out only to the Real Techniques Buffing Brush, but hey they do different things) as it is just so perfectly fit for purpose. It fits right under my cheek bones and is the perfect shape and width to contour them beautifully, yet it's fluffy enough to be taken up round my hairline and down under my jaw. I was a tad dubious about using the C441 Pro Blending Crease Brush (£3.99) as it has been so famously hailed as a MAC 217 dupe and I do dearly love my 217. However I genuinely don't think that I can tell the difference, the handle of the C441 is slightly thicker but other than that my untrained eye would have thought they were the same brush and they perform identically. I now feel a little stupid for forking out £17 for the MAC version. I purchased two of the C463 Infinity Angle Liner Brushes (£1.99) as I like to have one for the wax part of my Benefit BrowZings Palette and then a different one for the powder. My only gripe is that they're ever so slightly too thick for my brows at the moment, but I do have annoyingly thin brows and if I use them carefully then it's not a problem. I find that with careful washing all of these brushes clean easily, although you do have to be extremely gentle (I learnt the hard way) and reshape them quickly but for their price, I cannot praise them highly enough and I don't think I'll look elsewhere for my brushes for a long time.
