I bought this brush as part of a set on iherb.com and it came with the domed shadow brush which I use for concealer. I love using this brush for applying powder and bronzer. It picks up a nice amount of product and once you aren’t too heavy handed it applies bronzer beautifully to the cheeks.
Crown Brush BK49 Professional Pointed Blush
Sigma Beauty Flat Kabuki Brush F80
It looks like I have a little bit of a Crown brush addiction but yet another one of their brushes makes it into my favourites. I use this brush for applying product into the crease and the outer V. I have a Sigma pencil brush too but I find that the Crown brush picks up more product and is easier to apply eyeshadow with. The precision pencil costs €5.49 and can be bought here. ( Excuse the colour of this brush, it isn’t normally so grubby looking).
Sigma E55 Eyeshading brush
When applying shadow to my lid this is the only brush I use. This is a dense, stiff brush that picks up a really great amount of product and applies it evenly all over the lid. It costs €11.50 and can be purchased here.
Crown brush C433 Pro Blending Fluff
This Crown brush is so good I actually have 3 of them. They are an exact dupe for the Mac 217 brush, only better. This brush has just the right amount of stiffness that it creates the perfect smokey eye. It applies product evenly into the crease and blends to get rid of harsh lines. I have included a picture to compare it with the Mac 217 and to show how alike they are. This brush costs €7.61 compared to the Mac 217 which costs €24 . You can buy the Crown crease brush here.
If you are looking to start a brush collection I highly recommend Crown Brush, they are low price but high quality brushes. If you invest in a decent set of brush and take care of them you will have them for a long, long time
