Spectrum Marbleous makeup brush set


Hola girlies! I’m alive! I’m overflowing with good news, but since my last few posts were all announcements and life updates, I  figured my comeback after a couple months of silence shouldn’t be yet another catch up session. But let me cut it short – I graduated, we pretty much moved into the new house and I am enjoying this luscious new thing called FREEDOM! Of course, now comes the part where I am desperately looking for a job to rebuild my savings account, because let me tell you – this girl is B-R-O-K-E. Enough about my situation, let’s talk marble.

I mean, who doesn’t love the glorious and minimalistic print of marble? The internet’s full of it these days, and so are the stores. Heck, even my mom has her share of marble items scattered around the house. Most of those things are just decorative though, so how about something absolutely functional in marble print for a change?! I’m talking about makeup brushes here! Spectrum is a brand that sells makeup accessories inspired by our favorite mythical creatures like unicorns and mermaids, (obviously obsessed here!) and a while back they added this so-called Marblelous brush set to their collection.

Marbleous makeup brushes

The Marbleous collection consists of three different sets and an additional makeup bag. There is the 8-piece eye set, which – as the name gives away – comes with 8 brushes meant for eye makeup. Then there’s the 4-piece contour set, which gives you four big and sturdy face makeup brushes, perfect for applying foundation, bronzer, blush and highlighter. And last but not least there’s the full 12-piece set, which comes with all the previously mentioned brushes. I own the latter and I would genuinely reccomend it to any makeup (and marble) lover!

No unicorns were harmed in the making. Vegan registered and cruelty free.

– Spectrum

Spectrum calls this set “The most Instaworthy brushes you can own!” and I simply cannot disagree with that statement – they are extremely aesthetically pleasing to the eye! And on top of that they are also very comfortable to use. The super soft bristles made of real unicorn hair (duh!) have amazing blending capabilities and they just feel so GOOD! The only downside to this set is the first use – getting these beauties dirty really aches the heart.

I like to think that I am not the best reviewer when it comes to — well, anything! I’m just too naive to be a good judge. So even though you’re seeing this post about a fabulous cherry red lipliner, it’s really just me showing you some pictures and being proud of my new loot. Same goes for the other upcoming product posts. I mean, I have to do something with my very much appreciated Christmas presents other than smearing them all over my face, am I right?! ;-)

I’m gonna be honest — I love wearing my Clinique Cherry Pop lipstick from time to time (more cherries!) but I was missing that nice and polished look of a lipliner base. I was in desperate need of a good ol’ red lipliner to go with this lipstick. I know there’s plenty of good reds out there, but after abusing my MAC Whirl lipliner almost daily I knew I had to get another MAC liner to add to my tiny collection (gotta start somewhere!). After hearing a lot of good things from this liner, it landed on my wish list and my boyfriend ended up getting it for me for a Secret Santa gift! Thank you Secret Santa!

All I can say is that this lipliner has a beautiful deep red color and the pigmentation is crazy! I apply it over my Baby Lips (which is still my absolute favorite lip balm, by the way!) and I find it goes on very smooth and effortlessly. Stays on there pretty long, too! I like to top it off with Cherry Pop lipstick and I’m ready to go!
