Spectrum are a brand that seem to be paving the way for fun, innovative and good quality makeup brushes at affordable prices.
The brand has recently collaborated on some hugely successful collections including the ‘Mean Girls’ collection, as well as Disney.
I loved the ‘Spectrum x Disney Little Mermaid’ collection featuring Ursula and Ariel, and Spectrum’s latest collaboration is once again with Disney. This time the collection centres around the Leading Lady herself….Minnie Mouse. I mean who doesn’t love Minnie? And who could resist the girlie pink, Minnie-bows and polka dot array of products?
Our family are well and truly on countdown to our Walt Disney World Holiday (prepare for the spam!), we head to Florida in the new year when we will hopefully meet the Big Cheese and his Leading Lady herself. So what better way to continue our giddiness and Disney excitement than with a little something from this Spectrum x Disney Minnie Mouse Collection.
The ‘Spectrum x Minnie Mouse’ collection features brush sets, a brush belt, vanity case and hand held mirror all decoratively inspired by Minnie Mouse. The whole collection is as adorable and as cute as Minnie herself, with her signature bow and polka dots that have been given a little rainbow makeover.
With prices starting at £5.99 for an individual makeup brush, through to £59.99 for the most expensive brush set, there are products to suit all budgets.
- Minnie Camera Bag with 8 x Brush Set (£59.99)
- Minnie Polka Dot Pouch with 8 x Brush Set (£44.99)
- Minnie Belted Bag (£44.99)
- Minnie Vanity Case (£34.99)
- Minnie Hand Held Mirror (£19.99)
- Individual Minnie Brushes also available to purchase
Spectrum have now opened their first store on London’s Carnaby Street, so if you are in the Capital its well worth a visit to see this collection plus many of their previous collections (including the Little Mermaid) up close in store. Also they have ‘the’ most beautiful and photogenic little cafe upstairs too so you can grab an ‘instagramable’ coffee before you browse.
Spectrum x Disney Minnie Camera Bag with Brush Set
Focusing on the Minnie Camera Bag with Brush Set here is what is included (retails for £59.99)…
Such a fun and well thought out little bag which arrived in its very own pink dust bag (perfect for storing the camera bag away when not in use). This metallic pink camera bag is a really decent size and it does hold my Olympus Pen Camera with plenty of space for handbag essentials. The zip around bag has a removable pink studded strap, so you could use this as a makeup bag or pouch without the strap, then pop the strap back on to use as an actual handbag, the strap is also adjustable. Inside the bag there are two small slip pockets on one side and the other houses a set of 8 Rainbow coloured makeup brushes, a.k.a the ‘Minnie Brushes’.
The brushes themselves are vegan and cruelty-free and they each feel of really good quality. They feel strong and sturdy in the hand and the bristles are super soft against the skin. On using them and from washing the brushes I really like how they apply and blend makeup and so far I haven’t experienced any shedding of bristles which is always a plus point for me.
Included in this Camera Bag Set are:
- Spectrum A01 – Large Domed Powder Brush (Deep Hot Pink)
- Spectrum B01 – Flat Top Buffer Brush (Pastel Pink)
- Spectrum A04 – Tapered Setting Brush (Lilac)
- Spectrum A10 – Small Fan Brush (Aqua)
- Spectrum B06 – Tall Tapered Brush (Blue)
- Spectrum C06 – Small Tapered Brush (Pale Green)
- Spectrum A07 – Colour Applicator (Yellow)
- Spectrum A24 – Dual Brow Styler Brush (Peach)
I think this a great starter set for someone who wants a decent set of brushes with a fun and colourful twist, plus it gives you the adorable Minnie Camera Bag. I also think a set of 8 makeup brushes is the ideal amount for most people, you don’t really need a set of 20 brushes when most would just sit there not being used. Also having each brush a different colour makes it super easy to select which brush you want in a morning as they are so clear and effortless to see.
If you are or know a Disney fan who also loves their makeup then I think this would be a perfect Christmas/Birthday present. The collection is a nostalgic one for me and it’s just as sweet as Minnie Mouse herself.
