In 2008 my mother upgraded my makeup brushes as my big Christmas gift. I was elated and have used them well and really taken care of them. As I’ve gone to the Makeup Show every year for the last 3 years, I’ve slowly picked up a brush or two to add to my collection whenever I hit the Crown Brush booth. At the last Makeup Show I picked up couple of the Italian Badger brushes and decided at some point I need to just upgrade my entire set of brushes to these because they’re luxurious.
On Monday Crown Brush tweeted use code Crown15 to get 15% off an order and I decided now was the time to upgrade. I picked up 16 brushes, for $60 (that included shipping). That’s not a typo, I said I paid $60 for 16 brushes and these are top of the line, completely luxurious makeup brushes. Applying my powder never felt so dreamy before.
A lot of your makeup application is in the tools that you use. Crappy brushes will apply your makeup poorly, so I have always tried to get the best brushes I could afford and I love that Crown Brush really makes makeup brushes affordable. The last time I went to the Makeup Show I bought 3 girlfriends new brushes that they asked for and they were impressed by the price and the quality, I’ve never been let down. I highly recommend Crown Brush if you’re looking to upgrade your pieces, they have a wide range of brushes and the prices cannot be beat.
Have you splurged and bought new brushes? What’s your favorite brand to buy your brushes from?
