REVIEW: SPECTRUM COLLECTIONS BRUSHES
23 March 2015
I recently realised that I haven't reviewed my spectrum make up brushes on my blog so I thought i'd let you guys know what I think of them. I picked these up at the Clothes Show in Birmingham back in December so I have been using them for a while and have washed them loads aswell.
Spectrum Collections are a Vegan and Crulety free brand who specialise in make up brushes such as these! Obviously the first thing you notice is the colour. They are amazing! Such a cute pink handle with bright blue/purple bristles. They stand out against all of my other make up brushes and they are so unique.
First up is the Flat Top Buffer Brush which is a great brush for any base. The buffer brush allows you to apply a product and work it into the skin, you can buff it creating a really good even finish. I like to use this brush for contouring aswell. The bristles are really soft and gentle and don't irritate my skin. At only £8.99* this brush is a bargain.
Next is the oval concealer brush which I actually use for eyeshadow. The bristles allow flawless application of concealer and the rounded shape of the brush makes it really easy to apply and blend concealer. I actually use a the Spectrum concealer buffing brush and this Real Techniques brush for my concealer. I find the oval concealer brush works well at applying eyeshadow into the crease of my eyelid and then I use a buffing brush to blend in the product. The Oval concealer brush is also really good with cream eyeshadows or with my Nars Dual Intensity eyeshadow when I add water for a more stronger colour payoff.
I love the buffing concealer brush. It's create for blending in concealer under the eye. It blurs the product creating a flawless look. Its really easy to use and the soft bristles are really sensitive around the eye area. I think £4.99 is such an amazing price for such a good brush.
Finally the Large Fluffy Shader is one of my favourite brushes, I use it everyday ! I use it to blend in my eyeshadow. It makes applying your eyeshadow base really easy but I prefer to use it to blend. I tend to use it clean and use it to work into my base colour and then using the Oval concealer brush I apply my darker shade into the crease and then use the fluffy shader to blend the colours together.
*I bought the 3 eye brushes at the Clothes Show. I was Gifted the Buffer brush by the Spectrum Collections team at the Clothes Show. The above review is truthful and my own words and opinions. I have not been paid for this post
