Review | Crown C412 Deluxe Pointed Crease Brush

When I eventually cancel my Ipsy subscription I can circle back to this as a driving factor. When my November bag did not arrive and they eventually sent three total, one of them contained this brush inside. Oh I was elated to finally get a useful brush! Except it is not.

Starting with the basics, this is the C412 Deluxe Pointed Crease Brush from Crown Brushes. A very quick Google search shows a $10 retail price, and nowhere on the brush itself can I find where those dollars went.

It has a black handle with a silver ferrule and the whole thing feels cheap. It feels cheaper than eBay cheap. Just wipe that “DLX” lie off, please.

So the brush…is the worst brush I have used. The bristles also feel cheap. Synthetic and cheap. Can you see the scraggly, coarse bristles sticking out of the sides? Can you see the uneven cut? I am getting mad just writing this.

I tried to use this twice. The first time I thought I was having an off morning, maybe it was my primer that caused it to feel like it was “blending” unevenly and skipping. I started to get the feeling that it was not going to work. The next day and using a different primer and a better eyeshadow I had the same result. There was so much “Nope!” I dropped it and reached for my Essence blending brush.

There are some products that show their true colors immediately and this is one of them. Everything about it is cheap, visibly and tangibly cheap. I bet I could find a better brush at the Dollar Tree. I am not happy that I received such a rubbish, crummy item in my Ipsy bag however I am glad that I didn’t buy it outright. Then I would be truly upset.

If you receive one of these then do whatever you want but I would under any circumstance recommend this brush at all. This brush has completely turned me off the Crown Brush brand all together.

I promise to have a more positive post next time!

Bis gleich!

  1. Oh wow I had been hoping to get this brush in my bag as brushes are my favorite thing to receive, glad they didn’t give it to me. So sorry it was a bust. 😦 I’ve been thinking of cancelling my subscription with Ipsy as well, but I’m hesitant just because I’ve had it for years! But Ipsy just isn’t what it used to be unfortunately. 😦

    • I get so excited when I get brushes but the brushes I’ve received so far are useless to me.
      I would prefer to get products I can find at Target than some of these brands I have never heard of, and I spend a loooot of time online haha

  2. Great post! I had an issue when they didn’t send me a bag and I had to contact them to finally get one. I feel on the fence about Ipsy…some months I love what I get, and other months I feel like I wasted $10. :-/
