SPECTRUM X MEAN GIRLS: First Impressions

SPECTRUM X MEAN GIRLS: First Impressions

On Wednesdays, we blog about how aesthetically pleasing the new Spectrum x Mean Girls collaboration is. Whether you’re a fan of Mean Girls, a fan of gorgeous brushes or simply a fan of the best quotes in the world, you’re gonna fall in love with this set. Not only are these brushes the most perfect things I’ve laid eyes on, Spectrum are also a brand that DON’T test on animals (plus, no Unicorns are harmed either) so this purchase is just a win, win all round.


I’ve had my eye on Spectrum Brushes for a few months now so when this launch was announced I was super excited. I couldn’t give myself a reason why not to buy this set, so I pretty much convinced myself this would be a good purchase. – From a girl’s perspective, these are dangerous thoughts to have. Especially for the bank account.


What do they look like?

Of the 10 piece set, each brush has a different mean girls quote engraved on them. How bloody exciting. The colour of this set is just phenomenal, and really stands out against other brushes I have previously purchased. The quality of these brushes is also not to be questioned, with the brush ends being so ridiculously soft it feels like a dream.


All in all I’m very excited to properly play around with these brushes and see how good they really are. I know the point of having makeup brushes is to apply makeup,  but I’m slightly sad that I have to get makeup on those perfect little pink brush ends. Sigh. I’m sure you’ll see a lot more of these as they really are so pretty to look at, so keep an eye over on my Instagram!

Have you tried any of the Spectrum Collections? Let me know your holy grail brushes in the comments below!

    I’m a sucker for pretty make-up brushes and these are no exception! I agree sometimes when they look so good you don’t want to use them but at least you’ll want to keep on top of washing them so they look this good all the time!

    Hi, these brushes look fab, I would try them just for their colour and design as I love pink.

    • September 15, 2017 / 1:18 pm

      These brushes would be perfect for you!

  6. September 14, 2017 / 4:43 pm

      Aaah a girl always needs more brushes!!x

    I love the look of these brushes! I’d heard about the massive collection where you had to buy the burn book separately for A LOT of money, but I had no idea about these. They look awesome! You can tell even just from the photos that they’re really soft, which is great when applying makeup. I can understand your misery at covering them in makeup, though!

    • September 15, 2017 / 1:17 pm

      Yes I just purchased the brushes separately as much as I loved the look of the burnbook I would never hide these brushes away in a case!! They are so soft and lovely on your skin!x

      • September 21, 2017 / 5:41 pm

        Yeah, of course; they’re far too beautiful to do that! I can imagine.

    Ever since Spectrum announced this brush set, I knew I’d want it. I still do, and I absolutely love the quotes which are on the handles! They’re a gorgeous shade of pink, and I know that I’d feel bad for dirtying them!

    These brushes are gorgeous! But don’t really have a reason to buy them so… ^^ x


    • September 15, 2017 / 1:13 pm

      I wish I could say the same.. I’m always buying things I really don’t need! Oops!x

  12. September 14, 2017 / 6:57 pm

    I am definitely in need of some new make up brushes and these are so pretty. I’m super tempted by the fact they’re cruelty free, too… I will definitely give them a second look!

    • September 15, 2017 / 1:13 pm

      I love that they’re cruelty free too- so refreshing to see!!

    • September 15, 2017 / 1:12 pm

      Thankyou!! I love them!

  13. September 15, 2017 / 1:14 pm

    Aw thank you so much!! These are just taken on an iphone at the moment, I’m looking in to cameras so I wanted to see if I would put it to good use first!! Such a lovely comment thanks!!x

  14. September 27, 2017 / 1:53 pm

    These brushes are SO beautiful! I’m not sure if I’d want to use them, I’d just keep them in my room as a decorative item hahah! I love the Mean Girls quote as well, it’s a perfect fit for this gorgeous colour! They look super soft, I hope you get on well with using them!

      Ive only used them once and I washed them straight away haha!! Thankyou!xx

  15. September 27, 2017 / 5:40 pm

    Oh my!! These are a bit beaut aren’t they!! I really can’t justify getting more make up brushes… or can I?! Hmmmm! Xxxxxxxx


  16. September 29, 2017 / 1:57 pm

    Um, HOW did I miss this collaboration?! I’m so behind the curve sometimes! These brushes look fab, I love the pop of colour they give to your adorable little dresser set up as well (oh hi Marc Jacobs perfume – that stuff is *divine*!). I know what you mean RE: dangerous thoughts for the bank account 😉 I often get fixated on something and think “I’m comin’ for ya on payday!” – and now these brushes are firmly on that list! Your photography is lovely, too!

      Aaah they’re so pretty aren’t they!! I’m nearly out of the perfume which makes me so sad! Treat yourself on payday! Thankyou so much☺️ x

    These brushes, are everywhere! I love them but I think I need to read a few more reviews before I can justify paying a lot for brushes and not shoes. This collaboration Is stunning!

    Get in loser, we’re going shopping!

    I was so very tempted to get these brushes when they came out. However, becoming a student again means less fun spending for me and more spending on essentials and rent! They look sooooo good though!

    I desperately want these brushes but don’t have the funds for them! I’ve heard from a friend that the brushes seem to fall off the handles quite a bit, she has an older set of Spectrum brushes so hopefully this issue has been fixed! They look beautiful though, don’t they?

    • October 16, 2017 / 10:40 am

      Oh no this is the first set I’ve had and fingers crossed they seem amazing!! They are beaut to look at too!!x
