Crown Brush 10 colour concealer palette

The Crown Brush palette has quickly become a firm favourite for many makeup lovers.  I was so excited to get my hands on this palette as it was never in stock. I am a huge fan of contouring and I really thought this was the product for me. I was so wrong.

The palette contains 10 different colour concealers, ranging from light to very dark. The lightest shade is not very light and if you are a fair skinned lady, this is going to be too dark for you. The darkest shade hasn’t even been touched in my palette.

I found that each of the colours were very heavy on the skin. They can look cakey when applied and make it look like you are wearing a serious amount of makeup. They blend out easy enough and do give a good contoured look, but they are very drying on the skin and caused my skin to breakout.  I have tried so many different ways of wearing and applying these, but still I have the same outcome.

The palette itself is light and easy to store, however it is poorly made and mine has begun to come apart. My palette didn’t even have Crown branding on it apart from a sticker, which makes me think it is just repackaged makeup. In fact I am almost sure it is just repackaged cheap makeup as I found it for sale here for less than €10. That’s some mark up for Crown Brush considering I paid nearly €28 including delivery.

I am not brand bashing , but this palette is just cheap, repackaged makeup. It reminded me of something that I would have gotten as a kid to play dress up with. It is not something I would recommend and in fact I would advice people to stay away and spend their money elsewhere. I’m annoyed with myself for giving into the hype, as I knew this was not going to be a good quality product . I should have trusted my gut and spent my money elsewhere.

    I couldn’t agree with you more!!! I did the exact same thing, bought the palette when I saw So Sue Me’s contouring video, was excited when it came but the first time I used it I noticed that the texture of the concealer was waxy, almost like face paint, and the shades were not light enough for me, being very fair skinned. Funny that you mentioned about it resembling something you would’ve bought as a kid to play dress up because that’s exactly how I felt! Like I mentioned, it was more like face paint as it undoubtedly had a cheap feel to it. Mine hasn’t started coming apart or anything but the packaging is quite clearly cheap. And yeah it completely dried out my skin and made me break out (I would have issues with my skin at the best of times anyway!) I’m not bashing the brand but this product I found to be a wasted investment. It’s not bad for contouring but I found that once I put my foundation on, the countering was hard to make out. I just topped it up with powder over the foundation so it worked ok, but I made the mistake of trying to use it as a regular concealer to cover up a few blemishes without having to apply a full face of make up or foundation – not only did it irritate the blemishes but it didn’t sit well on my skin at all, sinking into my pores and making my skin look very dry. All in all, I literally could not agree with you more!

    I have had the same problems with my Crown Brush palette. I’m so disappointed as I bought both the contouring and the blush palette after seeing rave reviews.
    The packaging seems very poorly made and my skin, particularly my chin has broken out badly after using the concealers.
    Also the pigments of the blushers are not high quality, I guess I was expecting too much for this price range but hey the reviews were great!

    Same! Light went on like my skin was a dry mess! Dark was ok but when I blended it it just caked up in my fair facial hair. Really dissappointed. Loved the idea of a cream Highlight and contour but this just doesn’t work- any recommendations of another??

    I am so glad Im not the only one feeling this way, I recently bought this to prevent myself lugging around several different foundation shades,I am so annoyed as it seems to be the exact same as a cheapie countouring palette I bought on ebay for 1 sixth of the price. It has really put me off crown brush anything:(

    I bought this the same time I bought a cheapie on eBay and guess what identical in every way even down to the same sh***y ingredients. Except one cost 6 euro and one cost about 20! I have used it though a few times and did like the effect it gave but I’d say I haven’t used it in over a year now. Much prefer powder and saying that the blank canvas contour powder one is also crap I find the pigment terrible! Contoured in a face of muck ha ha. Not the desired effect. Find it hard now to beat sleek in every way for contour!
