SPECTRUM COLLECTIONS – Mean Girls – 10 Piece Fetch Set – Baby Pink, Hot Pink and Purple

IMG_5089

And none for Gretchen Weiners, these brushes are all mine!

It’s no secret that I love Spectrum’s vegan makeup brushes – you can easily tell from my vast reviews that fill my blog, and the vast amount of their brushes that fill my vanity!I’ve also reviewed their Mean Girls eyelashes and their Mean Girl Handbags  as I’m completely obsessed with all of the Mean Girls inspired items in this collaboration!

These are the prettiest makeup brushes I feel Spectrum has come out with – the pale pink bristles, the hot pink to purple fade – oh my god I love it! What I love more is the hilarious quotes that adorn each one, which include “You go Glen Coco”, “You’re like really pretty”,  “That’s so fetch”, and “Grool”. Every time I reach for one, I giggle at the quote as I remember the scene from the film!

This is a ten piece set, which contains all you need to create a Plastic worthy, totally fetch makeup look! You get their foundation brush, precise blusher, No.1 Fan, and an angled eyebrow brush to name a few – it’s the complete collection to spice up your vanity and makeup collection. With this set, you also get an adorable hot pink mesh makeup bag, complete with a Burn Book key chain to get you in the mood to look hot! The key chain is detachable so you can use it as a cute addition to your key collection!

Bottom Line:  Extremely soft, beautifully finished brushes which make applying makeup easier with a flawless finish!!

Spectrum Collections – The Mouse Bag – I’m A Mouse, Duh!

IMG_4530

It’s a totally grool bag!

So, as you’re aready away – Spectrum had a collaboration with Mean Girls to create the most fetch collection of brushes, eyelashes and accessories for us to channel our inner Plastics.

I saw this adorable, vegan faux fur and leather bag, with Karen’s iconic “I’m a mouse, duh!” quote on it, and knew I had to have it in my collection! This bag comes with a brassy rose gold front with the quote in bubblegum pink writing.

To immortalize the quote, it comes with fluffy pink mouse ears to bring the whole “I’m a mouse, duh!” to life. The bag comes with a cute little Burn Book enamel zipper as well as a chain strap woven with the grey faux leather.

Bottom Line:  A totally fetch bag to express your inner Karen!

SPECTRUM COLLECTIONS – Makeup Brushes – Must-Have Mini’s – Fresh F.A.C.E. – Lilac, Hot Pink and Purple!

IMG_4532

A cute, lilac set of travel sized vegan makeup brushes!

I decided to try these out as I love Spectrum Brushes as you know from my previous reviews. As my previous brushes are white and marble themed, I decided to get a pop of colour on my new set! These brushes are hot pink and purple on the bristles with a silver ferrule and lilac handle. With this adorable travel friendly set, you also get a cute, baby pink zip case to store them in!

IMG_4533

In this set you get four brushes; one foundation flat brush, one angled blusher brush, one powder brush and an angled, eyebrow brush. These brushes together create the F.A.C.E. team;

  • F – Foundation use the A03 for your base. This firm flat brush gives a great amount of coverage, we recommend starting with a small amount of product and building the layers for a base that will last all day.
  • A – All over get your powder / bronzer on point with the A01, use this super soft large headed brush to apply translucent powder to set your base, or create a glow with bronzer across the forehead, bridge of the nose, chin, and apples of the cheeks.
  • C – Contour use the A05 to create a light contour under cheek bones or sweep a pop of colour on the apples. We also love using the angled part of the head to lightly apply highlighter around the temples and lightly over the cheekbones.
  • E – Eyebrows A17 is your brows best friend, use it to apply powder or gel products for groomed brows. The hair is firm with a sharp angle, so creating shape around thinner brows, or filling in gaps is easy work. Also, this little beauty is great for applying liquid or gel eyeliner, the angle helps achieve the perfect flick.

The colour duo on the bristles are to die for, and these are the most beautiful brushes I have ever seen – Spectrum really know how to create stunning brush sets. If you’re not that keen on this colour scheme, I do implore you to check out their other sets – they have mermaid themed brushes, siren themed brushes and beautiful monochrome sets to suit everyone’s makeup aesthetic. Plus they’re all vegan and cruelty free!

Bottom Line:  Extremely soft, gorgeous travel friendly brushes which make applying makeup easier with a flawless finish!!

LILY ENGLAND – Makeup Brushes – 4 Piece Face Makeup Brush Set Marble and Rose Gold – PR

FullSizeRender

A beautifully soft brush set that is on trend with the rose gold and marble hype!

I received these brushes complimentary from the amazing folks at Lily England to try out and review for you lovelies!

As you know, I am obsessed with anything rose gold, and even splurged out on the huge Holy Grail Marbleous Brushes from Spectrum Collections, so I was very eager to try these out and see if they’re as good as they look!

In this set you get four brushes they’ve called the ‘Complete Face Set’. The four brushes you get are:

  • F1 – Powder Brush
    Large and fluffy, a great all rounder for powder, bronzer, blusher or loose powder foundations
  • F2 – Complexion Foundation Brush
    Domed brush for buffing and blending liquid, powder or stick foundations for an air-brushed finish
  • C1 – Contour Brush
    Designed to create the perfect contours with powder or cream products
  • C2 – Sculpt & Glow Brush
    Tapered brush head perfect for highlighting, setting powder or use in the hollows of your cheek to contour for facial sculpting

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of these brushes – these are on par with my Spectrum brushes! They’re soft, and high quality – with no bristles falling out on a deep clean – which I always use as a sign of brushes quality as you want something that won’t fall apart after deep cleans! Oh, and they’re VEGAN!

These brushes blended out my foundation, concealer and contour with minimum ease, which is hard to find with certain brushes as I use a mix of liquid, cream and powder formulas! Same goes for the blusher brush – it worked with my Zoeva blusher as well as my cream M.A.C. blushers.

They’ve preformed as well as my usual Spectrum Brushes, and out-preformed my Eco Tool’s brushes – so if you’re on a budget – these are your ultimate tools! Or if you want a set for travel, these are unbelievable to have in your on the go bag!

Bottom Line:  Sturdy, budget friendly, stylish vegan brushes that can tackle any makeup formula with ease to create blended contour on point!

Price: £24.95 at Lily England.

Spectrum Collections – Holy Grail Marbleous – 35PC Set – Rose Gold

IMG_8155

My 12pc set just got a major upgrade!

I first bought Spectrum Collection’s brushes last year, and you can find my review of them here, which has opened my eyes to how unbelievably good value these brushes are!

I was so pumped to see a sneak preview of a 35 piece brush set in this gorgeous rose gold and white finish, I just knew I needed these in my life! I was extremely lucky when my boyfriend decided to treat me to them. ❤

These brushes have show how the Spectrum ladies have spent their time honing their vegan brush making skills to create a fabulous set. There are numerous differences between my original 12 piece and these ones – for a start they’re softer, and less chunkier making them easy to use and hold. They’re not as weighty allowing the ultimate precision in use!

The colour fade on the bristles are to die for, and these are the most beautiful brushes I have ever seen. If you’re not that keen on the colour scheme, I do implore you to check out their other sets – they have mermaid themed brushes, siren themed brushes and beautiful colourful sets to suit everyone’s makeup aesthetic. Plus they’re vegan and cruelty free!

This brush set is the ultimate kit of all their application, blending, contouring and duo fibre brushes meaning you’ve now essentially for a brush for every different use!

Bottom Line:  Extremely soft, beautifully finished brushes which make applying makeup easier with a flawless finish!!

img_5114

These Spectrum brushes have a lovely rose gold accent and are incredibly soft!

I managed to snap these beautiful brushes back in the Cyber Friday deal at Spectrum Collections. They come in a 12 piece set which includes; an angled foundation brush, a luxe powder brush, a flat top contour and a luxe tapered sculptor.

The brushes have a white handle with a beautiful rose gold ferrule, with the bristles having a gorgeous white to grey gradient. The bristles are incredibly soft, and feel wonderful to use. They’re very easy to clean using a brush cleanser and a silicon brush cleaning mat. I can clean all of mine in around 5 minutes, which has made my cleaning routine a lot quicker!

img_5076

These brushes are vegan, and incredible quality. I haven’t found any fallen out bristles yet!

They apply my makeup smoothly and blend my contours perfectly. The eye shadow fluffy brushes pick up the perfect amount of pigment. I can’t believe I used to use a beauty sponge for everything! These brushes have revolutionised my makeup routine!

Bottom Line:  Extremely soft, beautifully finished brushes which make applying makeup easier with a flawless finish!!
