C472 Pro Chisel Blush* | £8.99 | Link | I thought I would start with undoubtedly my favourite brush of all time. This brush is described as a perfect applicator for both cream and liquid foundations, however for me, this brush and contour go hand in hand. The natural hair bristles work the product seamlessly into the skin, whilst remaining super soft and densely packed. Even though I haven't tried this brush with my foundation, I am very tempted to buy another one to try it out. Will I part from this contour brush any time soon? Absolutely not.
C490 Duo Fibre Blush/Blender Brush* | £11.99 | Link | It wasn't that long ago that duo fibre brushes were all the rage, however over time (and due to the hype around buffing brushes), I haven't seen duo fibre brushes being raved about much. Crown decided to combine two of their most popular duo fibre brushes into one duel ended brush, both perfect for travelling and saving space. The synthetic bristles feel slightly more harsher on the skin than natural bristles, however I use the flat top brush to blend concealer and the tapered brush for either cream blush or highlighter. Both brushes blend product effortlessly into the skin.
Delux Oval Foundation Brush* | £6.09 | Link | Even though I packed away my foundation brush a long time ago and no longer rely nor use them on a daily basis, I was intrigued to give them another go. After a few goes, I still wasn't sold and instead I tried it out with my concealer before a night out. To my surprise, this 'foundation' brush performed to a very high standard when blending in concealer. The bristles aren't as dense as I expected, therefore they move freely across the skin, leaving no lines or patches.
C491 Duo Fibre Shadow/Crease Brush* | £6.99 | Link | If you look into my brush collection, the first thing you'll notice is how minimal I like to keep my eyeshadow brushes yet when you look into my extensive make up collection you'll be able to see how I don't exactly keep my eye shadow palette to a minimum. I've tried out loads of eyeshadow brushes, but none ever seem to do the job properly. The Duo Fibre Shadow/Crease Brush has quickly become my favourite eyeshadow brush ever (strong statement I know), but each end compliment the other well. You can pack colour on and then blend eyeshadow seamlessly into the crease. Perfect for travelling and now an essential in my make up kit.
C473 Studio Pro Contour* | £9.99 | Link | This was the brush that both intrigued and excited me the most. How could it not when it has both the words 'contour' and 'pro' in the title? I imagined myself channelling my inner Kimmy K, achieving perfectly chiselled cheekbones with the technique of a professional. Even though that vision didn't quite come true, this brush did apply my contour powder like a dream, leaving no trace of any lines. The flat top is similar to that of the Real Technique Flat Contour brush, which I have been wanting to own since it's release, therefore I couldn't tell you how much they compare. I found that this brush works well with the Pro Chisel brush when I want to achieve thoroughly blended contour that defines my cheekbones. Now who wouldn't want that on a daily basis?
