So if you are anything like, me then you will always be in need of new makeup brushes, they seem to gather together like an untidy mass in my stands but there is certainly always room for more .
Last week I received an amazing parcel from a brand I have not tried before ''Spectrum''.
Previously , I have spent a small fortune on makeup brushes and believe me they can be quite expensive but my last set was actually bought 2 whole years ago and so this Christmas , I was hoping to get some new ones but knowing the prices of some of the leading brands , I actually never got round to treating myself to some and I have to wait till after Christmas before I can go on my shopping spree , a present from my husband which will be late this year due to the fact I am buying him his new puppy this year and he needs to buy all the bits and bobs .
The brushes I was mostly in need of were actually the face contouring type, I recently bought a new foundation brush but I needed a new buffing brush, an angled brush for giving my face depth and dimension .
I have been struggling with the mini brushes for so long now its hurting my hands so my luck was definitely in when these came to my door.
This is the 4 piece contouring face set from Sprecturm.
You can purchase these from Spectrum
Cost - £24.99

What they say about their product -
For a truly flawless look you need to start by creating a beautiful base. Use our 4 Piece contour set to do just that. The Flat Top Buffer is the perfect way to start, use it to get an even all-over coverage using a cream or powder foundation, use a slightly lighter tone for the central areas of the face to get a natural looking 'glow'. Then work with the Domed Buffer to give an airbrushed finish by lightly buffing the skin all over, the best way to make sure the foundation layer is worked into the skin and won't budge all day. The Angled Blush is then used to create angles and add depth to cheekbones and under the jaw, with a darker tone than your natural skin colour. Finally add the finishing touches with the Tulip Powder, but adding a darker shade around the hairline and temples, and applying the final touch of highlight across the brow bone, nose, and chin. Perfect.
My thoughts on these makeup brushes -
I am absolutely loving these brushes and to be honest I thought that they were very affordable compared to previous I have purchased.
The bristles are amazingly soft on the skin and I have yet to find any run away hairs coming loose , even when washing .
I have found that they wash very well in fact , and they dry quite quickly to which is a bonus.
Getting 4 of your main brushes for only £6 each when bought as the set is an absolute steal and because there is not one brush that won't be used it is most certainly a fantastic set .
The handles are lovely in the hand, smooth and chunky , just how I like them .
Perfect for anyone wanting their first starter makeup brush set.
Spectrum have some other amazing sets , I have my eyes set on the fantastic 16 piece deluxe eye and lip set which only costs a bargain of £39.99 which I am in dyer need of due to the fact that I lost my shadow and brow brushes in storage when the roof was being fitted. It is an array of different brushes that will fit my needs perfectly .
How do you like the look of these brushes, have you given them a try already, what do you think.
