I've been keeping up with Spectrum's antics online for a fair while now, always drooling over the super bright and colourful brushes. As I am on the poor side of poor at the moment, I could never really bring myself to spend a fortune on brushes online that I REALLY didn't need. So I was pretty excited when I saw the stand was going to be at The Clothes Show.
I originally wasn't going to buy anything, as I was trying to save some money for Christmas. But I am a huge sucker for discounts and buying things in the moment. I ended up getting the 12 pack for only £35! It didn't come with a bag or anything, but to be honest - I would have NEVER used the Clam or Oyster roll that comes with the original set. Those sets retail at £79.99 and my set, just the brushes, were almost half of the price (can you tell that I'm still justifying my purchase one month on).
The brushes themselves look absolutely gorgeous. I love everything pink and I fell in love with them straight away. They look so beaut in my little pots on my dressing table and it was so hard to actually start using them! I chose the set as it had a mixture of face and eye brushes.
From Left to Right: A02, C02, C03, B05, A00, A07, A12, B06, A13, A14, A15, A05
The bristles are really really soft and pick up product easily. I've been using the A02 for for foundation a lot and really liking that. I love a tulip shaped brush for contouring, so I am a big fan of the C03. I haven't gotten much use out of the biggest brush, the A00, yet. Perhaps I should start using powder more frequently!
I have been really impressed by the eye brushes, especially for doing detailed work. The A12 and B06 are my two favourites for doing detailed work on the crease. The A07 is great for applying shadow on the lid, and the other little brushes are fab for highlighting the brow bone and inner conner of the eye.
All in all, I am LOVING these brushes. They really do look so beautiful and they work really well. On top of that, they're cruelty free too! What more could you want?
Have you got any Spectrum Brushes? What do you think of mine?
Thank you for reading!
