BEAUTY | SPECTRUM COLLECTIONS SIREN BRUSHES

I'm no make-up aficionado but I do enjoy the process of 'painting' my face. Perhaps it's my artist background but I find there's something incredibly therapeutic about it, along with the ablility to play with colours. Most of my make-up brushes are by Sigma, I've been using them for years now since I first heard that their quality was comparable to MAC brushes but only retails for a fraction of the price. They have never given me a cause for complaint and owning a full set meant that I really didn't need anymore brushes but I was watching one of Lulutrixabelle's favourites videos and when she showed some of her brushes from Spectrum Collections, I was immediately smitten as they had pastel pink handles and baby blue hairs, a colour combination I'd never previously seen in a make-up brush. I hopped on their site straight away and saw that they had several different colour schemes that were all equally gorgeous and squeal-worthy. It took quite a while for me to decide and settle on the Siren set, which boasted a rainbow holographic metal ferrule and teal brush hairs. The 12 brushes in the Siren set also come in a stunning and super handy mermaid brush roll. I don't think I've ever seen a prettier set of brushes in my life and it just brings me so much joy to reach for these when I want to apply my make-up. Spectrum sell a wide range of different brushes for various purposes and you can purchase them individually or in complete sets. However, I must say that despite their magical appearance, I find the actual brushes themselves aren't as good as the Sigma ones. Although they feel super soft, they don't seem to apply product as smoothly and sometimes they buff off some of the makeup that's already on my face. It's nothing too annoying at all though, and I still think they're definitely worth it if you're looking to inject some fun into your beauty routine. Plus they look so beautiful on sitting on your vanity!
