Like any makeup junkie, I’m always eager to try new makeup brushes. When iFabbo sent me the Crown Brush HD Set to review, I couldn’t wait to try them out! This set comes with six vegan makeup brushes and a pair of tweezers in a zippered pouch. Crown Brush made traveling with makeup brushes a snap with this set!
Claims: “Perfect for applying High Definition cosmetics, liquids, creams, and powders.”
Ingredients: Taklon bristles. Taklon is a 100% synthetic ?ber.
Pros: Cruelty free and vegan bristles. The storage case is small enough to fit in your purse, making it perfect for travel. Very soft and fluffy bristles.
Cons: A very basic set that may not be enough brushes for the experienced makeup junkie. The brand sells other brushes that are not vegan.
The Verdict: This is a great set for makeup newbies, those with a minimal routine, or to throw in your carry-on while traveling. It covers all the basics. I used these brushes several times and each time felt that I was constantly reaching for others to complete my look. There just weren’t enough basic shapes and sizes to cover my personal needs. I liked how soft the brushes were and noticed that they held product well. The Crown Brush HD Set did a great job of blending my makeup and would also be great for those wanting to create a subtle, natural look. My favorite was the Crease Blender brush! It did a great job of blending my eye shadows in a way that looked great and natural, without over-blending.
While I did enjoy these brushes and this set is vegan, not all Crown Brushes are vegan. Unfortunately, Crown Brush does make products with animal hair. To quote the company, “Crown only partners with suppliers whose handles come from managed reforestation cooperatives. All natural bristles are purchased from fully licensed & accredited suppliers that adhere to a strict non-cruelty code of ethics.” I am hesitant to believe that any animal hair bristles are sourced without cruelty and try to avoid brands who use animal hair brushes as much as I can.
I do think that it’s worth appreciating those brands who provide vegan options and celebrating that they are taking steps in the right direction. Hopefully soon Crown Brush will produce only synthetic vegan brushes!
