Wow! So Crown Brush have introduced a whole load of new makeup! There’s so much that I really didn’t know where to start. There are some lovely looking eye crayons and lots of pencil products that I really do need to get to grips with, but because of the continuing obsession with sculpting and contouring, (it seems to be having a 2nd, 3rd, 4th rebirth?), I thought I’d show you this. This is the Crown Brush Blush Bronze Illuminate Palette.
Straight away I like this because it’s absolutely massive! There’s a big old mirror that would be more than adequate for doing your makeup in, and there’s a really great amount of product in there.
Half the palette is a matte bronzer and then the other half is divided into a blush and a highlighter. There’s nothing flashy about this palette, but the texture of the powder is nice and fine, and the shades are really nice.
I think even palies like me can get away with this colour trio. Although the bronzer looks dark in the palette, it applies very gently and you can build it up if you want to deepen things up a bit. The blush is really pretty and subtly brightens up my complexion. You can go for a subtle glow, or more of a pop if you layer. And the illuminator is effective but still subtle and even shimmer-phobes shouldn’t hate it.

Before (pasty and pale!):
After (sorry for the lack of any other makeup!):
I really like this and I think it would be a great one to throw in your bag if you’re travelling. Especially with that big mirror. It isn’t one I’d be particularly flashing from my handbag, but that’s fine because I have other pretty palettes for showing off!
I think this is great. The Crown Brush Blush Bronze Illuminate Palette costs £19.99 and it will last you a good while. Apparently the bronzer has some anti-ageing properties but I haven’t really looked into that. It is due to go online 12th March 2015.
