Spectrum Brushes // Review

Flat Top Buffer // Tall Tapered Blender

Make-up brushes are (arguably) one of the easiest ways to perfect a make-up look- good brushes, good blending, good finish. Despite this, brushes are one of the items I buy least often. I find it hard to part with my money and just can't bring myself to spend £20 plus on a brush. When I The Sunday Girl's 'Brand's to Watch' in 2015, Spectrum Brushes were mentioned so I decided to take a peek at what they had on offer, and it wasn't soon before my order was in. 

Let's start with the packaging- they came looking beautiful. Everything from the metallic green jiffy bag, the personalised message to the translucent reusable case impressed me and made me feel like I was getting a great all-round product. The brushes themselves are so eye-catching with the pale pink handles and brightly coloured bristles so they really stand out in my collection.

I decided to pick up just two brushes to begin with. The Flat Top Buffer brush costs £8.99 which I felt was pretty reasonable. It's a really dense brush which makes is perfect for getting that airbrushed finish when applying foundation, even more so than my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. One of the things I loved when ordering is that there's a video along with the photos so that you can see how the brush moves so you can judge how dense the bristles are without feeling it yourself. The other brush I picked up, the Tall Tapered Blender, was actually in the sale at the time (it may still be, take a look) and so I paid on £3.99 for it. This is an amazing dupe for the MAC 217 brushes so for that price I am blown away. It makes blending out eye make-up so quick and easy so you're left with a really beautiful, soft look. I've been using these brushes a lot lately and so far have noticed virtually no fall-out of the bristles. They say you get what you pay for but these brushes are such amazing quality for the price that I just can't agree with that statement.

If you're after some new brushes I cannot recommend Spectrum enough. I will definitely be picking up more brushes from them in the future, plus they do some great brush sets which I've got my eyes on, so go check them out!
