    Crown Brushes - questions & discussion

    Are these any good? Their website is mind-boggling, I'm not sure what's good.

    I've been tinkering with the idea of starting a brush/makeup accessories line. I've already heard good things about japonesque and asked them for a catalogue. I just wanted to find out a little more about Crown.

    Japonesque are much better quality in general. Skip the Pro line and mineral line from Crownbrush. But the Badgers are soft, the Studio and Backstage lines are pretty good.

    I have the full line of italian badger brushes. The are very nice IMO and also very reasonably priced! The only one that I was not happy with was the italian badger kabuki which was to soft and not thick enough to buff with.

    Their best brushes hands down is the mini Badger travel set. They are really soft and dense - softer than the full size Badger brushes. The worst brushes are the mineral line and pro line. The mineral line are too hard, too big, and too scratchy. The pro line brushes I received were poorly and unevenly cut. Also stay away from C109 and C223 and Badger foundation as they are scratchy. I was generally happy with most brushes from the Badger and Studio line though. Overall they are nice brushes at a great price! A group buy is a great way to go to qualify for great discounts!

    They are cheap because they are the manufacturer, so those are wholesale prices. A friend on another board is doing a group buy to get a 40% discount. Then they are *really* cheap.

    Crown Brushes are awesome!!! (Thnx caffn8me!)

    I just have to give a shout out to caffn8me for sharing with us about the crown brushes co. I just got my order today and I must say these brushes are soooo amazing!!!! I just cannot believe the quality of these brushes!!! And they are sooo cheap at around $1-15 I think was the most expensive one that I got. I got this chisel deluxe dome brush that looks and feels exactly like MAC's 136 powder brush that's $62.00 for $12.95!!! Can you believe that?!!Also they have the exact brush belt MAC sells without it saying "MAC" for I think about $19.00.So take a look girls! It is totatlly worth it.And thanks again Caffn8me! By the way I pmed you! (=

    Could anyone that uses the Crown Brushes list their MAC equivalents?
    ie MAC 224 = Crown M7

    It would be greatly appreciated!!!

    &quot;Which ones did you buy, there's so many!&quot;
    Yes that is the website, and sorry to get back to you so late, but here are the ones I've gotten

    C104 angle brush
    C140 Chisel deluxe dome brush=MAC 136
    C200 Deluxe crease
    C139 stiff tapered crease love this one
    KBS Mineral Kabuki=Catherine Denueve Kabuki brush
    M7 Deluxeu crease
    M9 Angled Shadow
    IB124 Italian Badger Kabuki (ok)
    C157 Detail/firm shadow(ok)
    C158 Smudger/oval fluff
    C159 liner/chisel fluff
    C154 Cresent fluff ( my fave) this brush is amazing!! It blends your crease and highlight color effortlessly for a beautiful effect. I put the crease color on one side of the brush and highlight color on the other and follow the shape of my socket.
    C220 angle fluff
    C206 Deluxe lip brush = MAC's lip brush w/ cover

    hope this helps!

    Yay for Crown!!!

    I bought about 20 brushes from Crown, 4 years ago. They are still holding up very well. I prefer the Badger set. I really like the deluxe kabuki brush. It shedded a lot in the beginning but after a while there weren't anymore problems. The shipping was extremely fast. I highly recommend them.

    re: Crown Brushes - questions & discussion

    I'm sorry but I can't find anything on their website that says what the bristles are made of. They look synthetic....are they? Or are some of them natural fibres?

    re: Crown Brushes - questions & discussion

    you have some mineral brushes. There is a section on their webside.
    But their brushes are very good. I've just receive the deluxe italian kabuki and it's awesome! and 2 blush brushes: I love them!
    Don't hesitate!
