You may have seen on my instagram stories that I have mentioned Crownbrush UK a few times. Last month Crownbrush UK kindly sent me a variety of makeup items that I have been fortunate enough to use over the past few weeks. Before receiving these lovely items, I had seen Crownbrush floating around on my Instagram feed and on Youtube where other bloggers had shared their reviews of the products they had tried.
When I received all these amazing bits, I was like a little kid in a candy store! You may have read or seen me mention all this year that I am on a makeup/ beauty buying ban as we have been in the process of renovating our new home so I have been saving and using my money for this. As you can imagine, this has been extremely hard for me as I am a massive beauty junkie and receiving these products was a breath of fresh air as I was able to try and use BRAND NEW makeup and not just a new brand!
Over the past few weeks all the products I received have now firmly situated themselves into my makeup routine and now I am going to share with you all why I loved using these products!
So you can all see what products I received in one place, here is a list of the items I now have in my makeup collection :
I apologise if the list above has just made your makeup wish list longer!
This pressed powder contour palette has a variety of shades that covers most skin tones. My skin tone is a yellow tone/olive skin so the lighter shades are great from creating a subtle highlight and coverage on top of my liquid foundation and concealer. The darker shades are great to use from contouring the face and neck. I used an angled contour brush to lightly sweep over two or three of the colours to create a deeper looking contouring for a full makeup look. But for a natural everyday look, one of the darker shades would be enough to create a little shadow on under the cheek bones, forehead and temples and even little across the jawline.
This contour palette has now become my go to contouring palette and has actually replaced my ABH palette, which was always my ride or die, but now I have this palette and a better choice of shades, it makes creating my base so much easier.
This gorgeous Rose Gold eyeshadow palette is just the perfect palette for me. I love browny/pinky and warmer tones when I’m creating eye looks and this palette just ticks all the boxes for me. With a variety of highly pigmented matte and shimmer colours, you can create so many natural and warm tone looks, either an everyday look with the lighter shades or spice it up a bit with the vibrant warmer shades. I have loved playing around with the palette and love how easy the colour blend and smooth out on the eye lids. They also blend together very well making it very easy to create any look you want. The texture of both the matte and the simmer shadows are soft and easily picked up by any makeup brush with minimal fall out, which is great when you don’t want to be
Below are some swatches of each row so you can have a feel of what each shade looks like. These have been applied using the Crownbrush UK C510 Pro Oval Shader Brush.
I have too many makeup brushes, but I always reach for my favourites and ones that I am confident using. These brushes look very professional and fit into my collection very well. They are all so easy to use and the two eyeshadow brushes are extremely soft and easy to guide.
I am a huge fan of lipstick, I love dark shades, natural shades, pink tones and reds! Reds are my go to for confidence and when I am going out I love how they just seem to last all night on my lips!
These two Crownbrush UK lipstick are so sophisticated looking in a plain and simple lipstick packaging. Both colours are beautiful and colours that I would wear with any makeup look.
This is one of the many looks I created using the Crownbrush makeup and brushes. I really enjoyed trying and reviewing these products and I will definitely be purchasing some bits once I’ve completed my ban. The prices of these products are great value and such great quality, I am very impressed with this brand.
