Spectrum Collections Makeup Brushes




After telling you about the Spectrum Collection Brushes pre-launch I finally got around to purchasing some to try out for myself. My order consisted of the Blending Sponge, Angled Foundation brush and the Large Fan brush. Today I’d like to tell you a little about each brush and give you opinion on them, so here goes


These are available in 5 colours, I chose Fuchsia but they also sell yellow, blue, lilac and pink. The Blending Sponge is latex free and perfect for blending liquid, cream or mineral foundations and concealers into the skin. Use the pointy end for areas like the nose and around the eyes; the rounded end is then used for the rest of the face. This is so easy to use, just dampen the sponge, wring out the excess water and start bouncing it on your face to blend your products, it really is that simple! Retailing at £4.99 which I think is very reasonable.


Use this clever brush to blend cream or liquid foundations to your skin. The angle makes it ideal for hard to reach areas, plus it makes it perfect for applying and blending contour products to the face and neck. I found it a little odd using an angled brush to start with however I have quickly adjusted to it and now find it weird using normal foundation brushes! Retailing at £11.99.


If you were ever going to call a brush beautiful this would be it! The Large Fan brush has super soft bristles that are perfect to apply powder, highlighter or blush products. The design of this brush means upon application you will be left with the perfect soft focus finish. Also the slightly crimped hairs ensures they are tightly secured in the ferrule;  the crimping also increases the amount of product that is picked up making it even more perfect. Retailing at £12.99.


Both of the brushes have a very distinctive look with blue/purple ombre hairs which are 100% synthetic. The pale pink gloss handles are infact wooden, which was something I had asked Spectrum Collections about as couldn’t find any written details about the handles. Also the ferrule has a high black gloss finish that really sets them off nicely.

Overall I’m very impressed with the quality of these brushes and would recommend them to anyone in need of some new makeup brushes!
