As we all know, I love makeup. I’ve always really enjoyed playing with colour, brightening up my look, and experimenting with new beauty products – and it’s been so much fun sharing that with you all on my Beauty Youtube Channel.
While I’ve talked about makeup, and shared my reviews, one thing I haven’t talked much about are makeup brushes. The fact is – a love for makeup is all for not if you don’t have a great set of brushes to back it up.
Even the best products in the world require brushes to apply them – and that’s why I am always on the hunt for the absolute best brushes.
Today I am sharing my review of the Spectrum Marbelous 12 Piece Brush Set – so if you’re on the hunt for some new brushes than this is the post for you!

The first thing that caught my eye about these brushes was the look of them, I mean honestly – they’re gorgeous. The white handle, rose gold finish, and soft grey + white brush is simply beautiful and makes applying your makeup feel super luxurious.
Cost: £64.99 GBP
At £64.99 GBP, these definitely aren’t the cheapest brushes you’ll ever find – but they are great quality, beautiful, and apply makeup flawlessy.
To start, the actual construction of these brushes is great. The brushes are all incredibly soft and fluffy feeling on your skin. I noticed zero hairs / fibers fall from these brushes which is very important to me, since I never want to add stray hairs to my makeup look! I have very sensitive skin, and some brushes can feel rough or scratchy against your skin, but these brushes are very soft and gentle
Aside from being a huge fan of the actual look of the Marbelous 12 Piece Brush Set, I am really thrilled about the quality of each and every one of these brushes.
This is a fantastic brush set overall, but a few of my favourite brushes from the collection have been A12, B06, A07 and A00.
The two eye brushes I loved (the A12 & B06) are both excellent. The A12 is great for really defining your eye crease, creating a really smoked out bottom liner, and also just for applying darker shadows into the outter crease corner.
The B06 is a great blender, and it really soften and blends out even the most challenging of eyeshadows.
For the face brushes, the A07 and A00 quickly became got into my top faves because they both felt so pillowy soft and plush when you applied product to your skin. I love brushes that are delicate on your skin, and these brushes really are super soft.
