Raise your hand if you've ever wanted to get your hands on some spectrum brushes... Well, I'm sure if my hand could stretch any further it would be through the roof. You can probably guess from the title of this post, that cheeky little Mean Girls quote and the abundance of pink pictures floating around the blogosphere to what this post is about. Something so totally fetch is happening today and I totes want to share it with you... see what I did there... deffo trying to make 'fetch' happen. 

A month and a bit ago I was honored to attend the launch of the Spectrum x Mean Girls collaboration with paramount, the event was legit bright pink and you couldn't miss it from a mile away. I'm sorry but this event was on another level, they had pink lockers in one corner of the room as the perfect backdrop for some blog photos and it legit felt like I was back at school. They had actors walking around the room portraying the characters from the film and I even got to slut drop with Damien (SHE DOESN'T EVEN GO HERE) 

I've never tried any of the brushes from Spectrum before so I had no idea what to expect. They're cruelty-free and vegan-friendly and as a trained makeup artist this is something I'm a bit wary of. There's nothing wrong with vegan/cruelty-free brushes but, I've found that if they're poorly made or they're too soft then they're literally impossible to use. They don't pick up product and they don't blend your makeup out nice enough to venture outside, however, if they're made correctly then you're in for a beat and blended face. 

This collaboration features a 10 piece brush set with hot pink, ombré handles. Each brush has an engraving of the films most famous quotes on the handle and the hot pink mesh case they come in has its very own detachable burn book! If you didn't think to have 'YOU GO GLEN CO CO' engraved on a makeup brush was enough, Spectrum has made it possible for you to finally own your very own burn book! No joke, I think I'm gonna have to get two of these... one for a handbag and one to store my brushes in.

I've never actually had brushes like this, I've had the cheap knock off versions that don't actually work but, these brushes are mind blowing. Of course, they're soft but they work just as well (maybe even better) as my zoeva/mac brushes. I haven't had a problem with shedding but it's pretty common to lose a few hairs when you wash them anyway, I'll let you know in the comments or on twitter if I end up having a problem with this. 

Makeup brushes can be expensive believe me, I've spent over 30 quid on just one brush before and it crushes my heart every time I think about it. The Spectrum x Mean Girls collection starts at the affordable price of £49.99 and for 10 brushes of great quality and hot pink realness, I think that's a great price. If you're like me and want all the added extras like the Burn Book brush case/handbag include with the brushes then that retails for £79.99. You get 10 beautiful brushes and a handbag all under £100... that's bloody amazing if you ask me and I'm awful with spending my money! 

These so totally fetch brushes are making their big debut tomorrow on spectrum.com and you guys need to be quick, don't be a Gretchen Wieners and miss out on this collaboration! Have you tried anything from Spectrum Brushes? Will you be picking up anything from this collaboration? Let me know down in the comments. 

All brush sets will be available at https://www.spectrumcollections.com/ and are being released on the 30th of August... keep your eye's peeled bitches!
