I’ve heard about how great Crown brushes were and how they were a great replacement for MAC brushes so I decided to purchase some when the 15 Piece Professional Set With Designer Case was on sale for $29.99 (included cost of shipping).
There are 3 different designs for the 15 Piece Professional Set With Designer Case: (1) Set 619: black case with red handles and black ferrules, (2) Set 620: red case with black handles and black ferrules, or (3) Set 621: bronze case with black handles and bronze ferrules. I have Set 621. The clutch is made of a faux reptile material with velvet interior lining.
What I like about Crown 15 Piece Professional Set With Designer Case is that it’s a clutch case and not a rolled up case. It’s a good change from your usual rolled up case. The brushes are all very soft and held their shape after each washing. I also love the cost of each brush. After doing the math, each brush cost less than $3 if you buy at the $43.99 price.
What I don’t like about the Crown 15 Piece Professional Set With Designer Case is the strong unpleasant smell I was hit with when I first opened the clutch. It does disappear over time after airing it out, but it took awhile. I also didn’t like how a couple of the brushes shed so much. I do understand brushes shed, but do they have to shed so much every time you use and wash them? My face was covered with hairs. Also noticed a few of the brushes weren’t as soft as they originally were prior to washing, but they were still soft.
Overall, I’m a tad bit on the fence about repurchasing this set. I just expected more from a “professional” brush set. I’ll probably purchase individual brushes to compare the quality to the brush set.
