Review and Swatchfest: Crown Brush 10 Blush Palette

I realized I hadn't reviewed this when I noticed that Crown Brush is having an event on Hautelook tomorrow. I have only tried two of the many products Crown Brush offers, this palette and the Hautelook exclusive brush set, but so far I'm impressed. I hope to have a video review of the brushes up later today.

This palette is ideal for travel because it's so slim and has a mix of shades, undertones, and finishes and even has both your blush and contour on lock.

Top Row
The top row consists mostly of pinks with a matte brown (great for a contour) on the far right. From left, there is a matte bubblegum pink, shimmery lilac-pink, shimmery darker pink, shimmery baby pink, and matte brown.

The bottom row has the bronzers. From the left there is a shimmery peach-pink (similar to NARS orgasm), peach with gold shimmer, sparkly camel brown, shimmery but subtle gold, and a shimmery chocolate.

The bottom row makes this palette good as a complete face palette too as I'm not sure what I would do with a sparkly camel color and shimmery chocolate color besides where them on my eyes. For lighter skin tones, they might be too dark and shimmery to look natural when worn on the face.

The powder can get a little chalky, but that doesn't stop it from applying smoothly and relatively evenly. The light pink shades are great for subtle "just pinched" color on the cheeks, but are also very buildable, the matte brown is infinitely useful both as a contour and bronzer, the shimmery peaches are wonderful for providing warmth to the face, and there are a few good summery highlighters in the light browns. This palette is invaluable as a travel palette and is a great way to expand the range of your collection when you are on a budget.

While I don't know for sure that it will be available on Hautelook tomorrow, it has been multiple times in the past. If you miss it, a similar palette (probably the same one) is available through coastal scents.
