I've sent an email this morning to Crownbrush about the type of brushes they had & about the shipping in Europe and here's their answer:



We are the distributors for Crownbrush on this side of the Atlantic. If you give me your address I will send you a catalogue with a price list.
Yes we can ship to France, it is about 30% more than a standard letter or parcel. I deal with German, Switzerland, etc.
Some of the bristles are natural, badger, sable and some are synthetic.
We offer own labelling facility on all orders of 24 or more of any one type of brush. You also have the choice of font and colour of font.
I look forward to haring from you.

Regards

And they answered right in the afternoon, that's nice! Hope that'll helps.

Oooh cool, I want to order the catalogue (if it's free). I only like natural hair brushes though, so I hope the catalogue is a bit more detailed than the website. I may just email them and request one. I do need some more brushes (well, not really, but you know us addicts can never have enough!!!)

Tell me about it :nod:

I've been working with brushes in natural hairs and synthetics one and honestly, there's no comparison. The first ones last wayyyy longer than the synthetics and you've got precision and quality that you can't obtain with the second type.
I'll order their catalogue too, I want to take a good glance at their brushes. Yeah I think it's free... well I hope so! I'll email them tomorrow and I'll let you know (if you want to).

re: Crown Brushes - questions & discussion

By the way, I received their catalogue yesterday and it's written:

Crown Brush UK
High Gables House
Chipstead
Surrey
CR5 3YF,
Telephone: 0870 241 4406
email: david_jones@btconnect.com

Seems like they are opening a Crownbrush factory (an annex maybe) in the UK. And the guy told me the delivery should take 2 or 3 days.. so I assume there's a Crown industry there for the luck of European Specktra-ettes

I sent an email to this address: crownbrush@hotmail.com

You can find it at the bottom of the first page. Actually I just asked for some details about the brushes and the guy offered to send me a free catalogue. If you want one, you just have to give your address

re: Crown Brushes - questions & discussion

The mineral brushes look identical to the BE brushes. Are they the exact same? (BE orders the brushes from them and has their label carved on it?)

re: Crown Brushes - questions & discussion

Check this email I got back from them.

Julia,
Thank you for your email. Most of our brushes are natural hair brushes Only
the brushes with orange or white hair are synthetic. These brushes are for
applying liquid products like foundation and eyeliner. The other brushes
are made from hair like Sable , Goat, and Badger. About shipping: We would
ship to you using US post office by GLOBAL EXPRESS. For a 1 pound package to
you it would take 3-5 days and would cost $27.40.
I will gladly send you a
catalog or you can view it online at www.crownbrush.com.
Thank you
Crown

$27.40 for shipping from the US to Europe????Wow that is absurd, I've never had to pay that much!

How much did you European ladies pay for shipping? That is exorbinant, doesn't make it worth it at all....

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.

I like Japonesque brushes overall. I like the travel size and have a bunch I use on my eyes.

God I had to pay only $4.25 for the shipping with Fyrinnae. It's really strange, how come the shipping can be that expensive??
I've seen on another board that you have to pay about $1.50 for each brush but I found it odd too... I send an email yesterday to Crownbrush to ask about the shipping costs to France, I wait for the answer now...

Did you know they have a factory in England now? You definitely have to call there to make your order, the shipping will be less expensive for sure!

re: Crown Brushes - questions & discussion

I sent them an email to ask if they have a European place for shipping, but basically if the s&h charges don't go down, I'm not going to order from them. Doesn't make it worth it if the shipping is almost the same cost as the brushes themselves!! Wouldn't save me any money at all...

I wonder how much Poppy_z paid for shipping since she also lives in France.

Me neither, if so, it's not worth it at all
Where did you send your message? Was it at david_jones@btconnect.com?

re: Crown Brushes - questions & discussion

I sent it to the regular email that is listed on their site...I guess it's the USA one.

I received the answer this afternoon:

Coraline,

There would be a difference of 10 € then ? Try to leave a message at the english address I gave you, they'll tell you about the shipping costs from England to Switzerland, it can't be that expensive, well I think!

Are they as long as the MAC ones?
post #52 of 214

re: Crown Brushes - questions & discussion

Dear all,
after reading this subject I sent an email to crown brush in US & in UK.
Yes indeed. A big different in shipping cost to Europe.

I see so many gorgeous brushes & the price is really great. I am very exciting to buy them. But I don't know which brush for which application.
I am just a beginner. I only know blush, powder & lip brush.
Can someone please help me to show which website or make up book explain which brush for which apllication, please?

Thank you so much.

Lucy

Thanks for the info. I don't see anything on that website regarding crownbrush though. How did you get the information for the uk distributor?

re: Crown Brushes - questions & discussion

A few days ago I got an email from Crown brushes UK. He said over 1 month they have their own Crown Brushes website & we can shop online.

When I send my email to this address crownbrush@hotmail.com (for the catalogue and other informations), I received an answer from that man in the UK, I think that europeans customers's mails are automatically redirected to the Uk part. Plus there's a sheet in their catalogue that mentions their manufacture in the Uk.

re: Crown Brushes - questions & discussion

Dear all,
does anyone ordered crown brushes in uk?
I just received the price list today & it is a bit big different price than in US.

re: Crown Brushes - questions & discussion

I'm going to place an order next week (I'm in France and I'll order in the UK), I'll post the details for you.

I try to access to their website but it doesn't work...damn! Could anyone tell me the exact size of the 1707-1 brush (in the Esthetic / Spa treatment)? It is not specified on their catalogue...

Thank you so much, Esperanza. Please let me know.

All the prices are in UK pound sterling not US $. I just informed yesterday.
For example the set 504 in USA is $30.34 in UK is 30.34 pound sterling.

re: Crown Brushes - questions & discussion

Dear all,

I have just bought crown brushes at ebay store via Forever Beautiful Cosmetics.
The seller is so helpful, patient and the price is good. Amazing fast respons to all my questions.
I think this is a good solution for us, who lives in Europe and want to buy Crown brushes

Kind regards,
Lucy
