Can we just take a second and talk about how amazing these Spectrum makeup brushes are?
I've had my eye on these makeup brushes for a while so when I spotted a recent half price Bank Holiday promotion I finally caved in and I'm so glad I did.
As I've never tried the brushes before I bought singles instead of a full set and for under £17 I got the Large Fan Brush, Flat Top Contour Brush and the Angled Foundation Brush. Although I'm a fan of the Real Techniques brushes, I think the Spectrum Collection range is more reasonably priced so if you prefer to get a variation of brushes for your money as opposed to just one or two, Spectrum brushes are a must-have.
Each brush features gentle and soft bristles fading from aqua to purple in an ombre effect and I especially love the chunky handles which makes them easy to use when applying both liquid and powder formulas.
The foundation brush I normally use isn't angled so having a pointed tip makes it easier to blend and create an even and flawless finish, whilst the contour brush is works perfectly alongside the Nars contouring blush in Paloma - I wish I'd have invested in this brush sooner as it really helps to create a defined and sleek contoured look. Last but not least is the fabulous fan brush, it's not only a beauty to look at but it's ideal for sweeping blusher or highlighters across the face where the light hits for a lovely Summer glow. I've been using Rimmel's Lasting Finish Soft Colour Blush in Live Pink and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle and as the tips of the brush are darker, it's easier to see how much product you've got on the brush so you can shake off any excess product.
The brushes also come packaged in super handy wallets so they can be transferred from makeup bag to handbag and protected from day to day wear and tear, so they'll stay even prettier for longer.
