Even though I'm a big fan of Real Techniques and Sephora, when it comes to their makeup brushes, I've never put a full range of brushes from either to the test. So when Spectrum asked if I'd like to try out some of their makeup brushes I was definitely keen to.
First of all, the price of this set really impressed me. At £39.99 for 10 brushes this works out at just £4 a brush. I certainly wouldn't be able to get some of these brushes, particularly the face ones, for anywhere near that price at the drugstore or Sephora. Secondly, they're stunning! I mean, how beautiful are these? A quick browse on Spectrum's site and I have a feeling that you'll find yourself seriously lusting after some, if not all, of their collections. I really love the look of the Marbleous brushes and the Glam Clam set looks absolutely unreal too. But let's get onto the set in question, the 10 piece essential set*.
This set contains everything that you would need for your eyes, face and lips. Some of my personal favourites have to be the flat top buffer brush and the angled brow brush, as well as the rest of the angled brushes. The quality really is superb. They are so so soft and I now find myself reaching for these above and beyond any others in my current collection. Another big plus point; each and every Spectrum brush is cruelty free.
If you're just starting out when it comes to makeup or like me, haven't really amassed a proper collection of brushes that you can actually rely on, then this is the set for you.
You can find Spectrum brushes on their on site and on Beauty Bay, Cloud 10 Beauty and on Birchbox.
