Crown Brush makeup and brushes
I'm sure we all know of Crownbrush as on of the best in the business when it comes to makeup brushes, but do we know much about their makeup line?!

I for one, didn't realise Crown makeup existed until I found myself eyeing up the most beautiful palettes as IMATS earlier in the year, and the collection doesn't stop at palettes...
There's foundation, highlighters, eyeliners, lip glosses and so much more, all at really affordable price points and there's so much to choose from. I really wonder why this makeup brand has gone so unnoticed... until now.

I have been trying out the HD Effect Primer which is a family new product to the Crown range.
Packaged in a simple yet sleek black tube, this is a really thick, gel like consistency, which applies to the face so smoothly. Despite being clear, this gives the effect of blurring any imperfections instantly and the face is left really soft to touch - the perfect base for makeup.

Although the primer itself doesn't look like, or really feel like any other primer I have used in the past, I would compare it to Benefit Porefessional in the way it leaves the skin feeling so velvety and smooth.
I have dry skin and this works well for my skin, but as it's oil free I can imagine it being great for those with oily skin types too.

My favourite product from the range has to be the Blush! Bronze! Illuminate! Palette, which for me was love at first sight. I was expecting this to be really expensive, but at only £19.99 it's a palette that everyone can afford, and should most definitely own.
The bronzer, the blush, the highlighter... ahh they're all so beautiful, I really don't know where to start!

As I apply it first, I'll talk about the bronzer; a medium toned matte powder, which blends seamlessly to give a really natural colour to the skin and is in fact an anti-ageing bronzer. There's no emphasis made on fine lines with this, it actually helps to blur and disguise them, giving a really fresh, bronzed look to the complexion.

The blush is a beautiful coral/pink shade, which is much like the bronzer in it's fine, light powder consistency. This again blends perfectly and adds a bright yet natural tint to my cheeks.
Finished off with the highlight which is slightly golden and sparkly, but not so much that it looks fake, it's more of a radiant glow... The three powders together are my new favourites!

My love for Crown brushes just keeps growing, and I now have the Pro Highlight & Contour Brush (C522) and the Pro Jumbo Shadow Brush (C506) to add to my collection. 
I have been using the highlight and contour brush alongside my palette as the tapered shape contours my cheek bones with ease. 
The jumbo shadow brush is perfect for applying allover base colours as the bristles are so dense and short, they pick up lots of product and pack it onto the skin with great prescision. 

Both brushes come from the Crown Pro range, which have all been handcrafted with higher quality hair to give better application for any makeup enthusiast. 
With a mixture of natural and synthetic bristles, these brushes work well with creams, powders and liquids - you really won't be left disappointed by them... I just want more!

I am wearing both products in the above photos, and I really love the look I have achieved with them. Thanks to the primer my skin looks so smooth and my makeup applied flawlessly on top and the colour given from the palette works perfectly with my skin tone.
I love the glow from the highlight and the blush gives a really healthy flush of colour... Now do you see why I reach for this palette daily?! 

Have you tried any products from the Crown makeup range?
