Spectrum Collections | Marbleous Brushes

This post has been a long time coming and it's all about the gorgeous 'Marbleous' collection by Spectrum, who are famous for their creating the most Instagram-worthy brushes! I was looking to replace my make up brushes for quite a while before I invested in White Marbleous collection, which I had been lusting over for months, so when they had their Pink Wednesday (or Black Friday if you're not a mer-babe or a unicorn) sale, I was all over it and placed my order as soon as I got the chance.

The White Marbleous collection consists of 12 beautiful brushes, with white, grey and rose gold detailing - like seriously, just look at them - aren't they just a bloggers dream?
The set consists of the five flawless face brushes, and seven smaller brushes for detailing your eyes, brows and lips. Here's a round up of the brushes and what you can use them for:

A00- Luxe Powder- Ideal for applying loose or compact powder for setting your makeup all over your face, this is one of my favourite brushes in the collection.
A02- Angled Foundation- Before I discovered beauty blenders, I used to apply my foundation using brushes similar to this and after using this brush, I may start doing it more often. It gives you such a nice, even finish and easily buffs the foundation onto your skin.
A05- Precision Brush- This brush can be used for all sorts, but I like using it for cream contouring or even adding a flush of colour to my cheeks.
C02- Flat Top Contour- If I'm using a powder contour kit, I always reach for this brush, which really helps you achieve that flawless contour that a lot of us don't naturally have.
C07- Luxe Tapered Sculptor- I'd say this is quite a multi-purpose brush, but I personally use it for either bronzer or blush. It would also work very well to set your under eye concealer with a powder, and for 'baking' if you're into that technique. 

A07- Stubby Shader- I'm not quite sure where this name came from, but this brush works very well for apply your base shadow.
A12- Fluffy Pencil- This brush is one of the ones that I reach for the most, and I think it's amazing for blending out eyeshadow on the outer corners of your eyes.
A13- Short Smudge- This one's great for applying product the lash line and waterline, for a sexy, sultry and smudged look.
A14- Brow Definer- Although this brush is amazing for making sure your brows are on fleek, I don't do much to my brows, so I much prefer using this for gel liner and I love that the brush is multi-functional.
A15- Lip Definer- I'd say that everyone needs to have a lip definer brush, especially if you're going for a bold lip.
B05- Luxe Blender- I use this brush for so many things, whether I'm applying my highlight, blending my eyeshadow or buffing in my concealer. I love things that are multi functional and the B05 brush ticks all the boxes.
B06- Tall Tapered Blender- This one is a must-have for blending shadows. It's so effortless and helps you achieve the looks you're looking for.

So what are my overall thoughts on the brushes? I have honestly fallen in love with them! 
At first, I was really hesitant about using them because they were almost too pretty and I didn't want to ruin that, but since I've been using them, they've become a staple in my everyday make up routine. The brushes are beautifully designed, really high quality, extremely aesthetically pleasing and they're vegan and cruelty free. In terms of pricing, these brushes don't come cheap...the set usually retails for £64.99, which I know isn't up everyones street but when I saw them on offer, I just had to have them because you'd be kind of silly not to take advantage.
