Spectrum x Mean Girls - You can't sit with us!

by - Friday, January 12, 2018


Hi, dolls!

Today I will be talking about and reviewing the brush set that Spectrum has introduced in collaboration with Mean Girls. A lot of you have been asking what brushes I am using to do my makeup, so I wanted to share with you guys the set that I recently purchased and have been using. Also, who loves the movie Mean Girls? I'm obsessed with it and know it by heart but could watch it all the time without it getting boring for me.



Spectrum Collections is a brand that is best known for their super cute brush sets but also other accessories. What caught my attention to actually try out this brand was their collab with Mean Girls. Mean Girls has to be one of my favourite movies and even though it came out so long ago, I can still watch it and never get bored of it. I mean if you haven't watched the movie, what are you doing with your life? 

Mean Girls collection is no longer just brushes & the Burn Book brushes case. Spectrum has also released lashes, bags and make-up organisers. The brushes have first launched back in August 2017 and were available in 2 forms - 10 brushes on their own (£49.99) or 10 brushes with a small version of the Burn Book which is a brush case (£79.99). The third option was to purchase an empty, but full size Burn Book (£49.99). I was late to the party and only got my 10 brushes & small version of the Burn Book in October and paid £64 because there was some Halloween promotion going on at the time. I received the box within a week and it came in this huge pink box with Burn Book theme on it, and I still keep it under my vanity because of how cute it looks!


As mentioned above, the set comes with 10 brushes that are made out of synthetic hair. I like synthetic hair brushes and have also been using makeup brushes from Real Techniques, which have been performing so well for me. There are 10 brushes in this set, and although some might say it's a bit too expensive to get the set, I think it's another fun beauty collab that not everyone needs to have, but many people will enjoy. I love the Mean Girls theme also, and maybe because I love the movie so much, this collab was something I really wanted to have. I love that each brush has its own quote from the movie written on it. My favourite has to be BOO, YOU WHORE. What's yours?


Final Thoughts
Overall, I really enjoyed these brushes, they do perform really nicely on the face and eyes and I never had any problems when reaching for them. I think the fact its done in collaboration with Mean Girls makes it even more exciting for me to have, and I see it more as an exclusive set I want to have in my beauty collection. The quality of the brushes impressed me, and I definitely want to reach out for other Spectrum brushes to see if they all perform just as good. 

Let me know what you guys think of this collab, has anyone tried it? Should I do a comparison between them, Real Techniques and Morphe brushes? Make sure to follow my blog by either using the side bar under my BIO or clicking the link HERE

Love, Olivia xo

  7. I LOVE Mean Girls! Thank you so much for your review!! I use Morphe brushes and I can definitely recommend them as well. If i haven’t just spent a lot of money of brushes this christmas i would have totally got these brushes (who doesn’t want to see their favorite Mean Girls quotes everyday!?) Could you review some Huda lip products?

  9. As always love your review! I would never splurge on brushes that cost that much but they are very pretty. My fav quote is " she doesn't even go here"
    I would love to see a comparison between morphe and real techniques, have a little bit of both and I really like them.
    Also I told you I had BH brushes, girl for the price of those brushes you can not go wrong. Not every single brush is amazing, but honestly for the price point you can always replace the 1 you may not like with a higher end one which I did!
