• Spectrum Brushes Review

    img_1504
    Back at the Clothes Show Live in December, I went there with one mission; To buy some Spectrum Brushes. I bought one of their brushes the year before and I was just amazed with how pretty it was and I loved how soft it was, so I wanted to buy a whole pack this year. The pack I got was The Bomb Shell.
    If you haven’t heard of Spectrum Brushes then they are basically the most Instagrammable brushes ever created. They do such a wide range of collections, and they aren’t just boring old brushes because they are so visually pleasing. They have marble brushes, mermaid inspired brushes and peacock coloured ones. I picked up the Bomb Shell Brushes because my favourite colour is pink and these are beautiful.
    The brushes themselves are of a really high quality and are really soft. My pet peeve about some makeup brushes is that they can be scratchy which can then extenuate and irritate any dry skin on my face. The brushes are a combination of a rosy pink, hot pink and rose gold… all my favourite colours in one! The brush handle is shorter than their other brushes so that they are the perfect handbag size. The brushes are dense so lots of product gets applied to your skin rather than staying on the brush. In the pack you get twelve different brushes. If you order them online then you also get the chose of a clutch bag or sea shell bag in a holography baby pink, however because I got the at the Clothes Show, they were just selling the pack of brushes.
    The brushes you get are:
    A00 – Luxe Powder
    C03 – Tulip Powder
    A02 – Angled Foundation – a new, softer, version
    C02 – Flat Top Contour
    A05 – Precision Blush
    B05 – Luxe Blender
    A07 – Colour Applicator
    B06 – Tall Tapered Blender
    A12 – Fluffy Pencil
    A13 – Short Smudge
    A14 – Winger Definer
    A15 – Lip Liner
    I think my favourite has to be the Flat Top Contour brush because before my contour was a bit sloppy and all over the place as I used a large fluffy brush, however this one is super accurate for defining my cheeks. I also really like the Tulip Powder brush and I primarily use this to blend in my contour, blusher and highlighter to make it look less like an ice cream tub (anyone else seen this meme?).
    Price wise, Spectrum Brushes are definitely on the more high end pricier side of makeup brushes and this set cost £79.99. I got mine for a cheaper £35 but then I didn’t get the gorgeous bag for them.
    You can find the brushes here.
    Have you got any Spectrum Brushes?

      These look beautiful!! How do they compare to Eco-tools and Real Techniques and are they worth the price??? xx

      • 25/01/2017 / 5:41 pm

        I only have one ecotools brush which is the beauty blender so I can’t do a comparison of that. Between real techniques and spectrum brushes it is hard to say because I am a fan of them both. I only have the core collection and the purple real technique brushes so in my opinion the spectrum brushes are prettier, and they are a little softer. I would say they are, but if you don’t want to spend that much they sell brushes individually too. x

      These are so stunning! I only have one Spectrum Brush so far, and just ordered the Wonder Sponge from them – so tempted to get the rest of the set, especially after reading this!
