Events | Spectrum Collections AW16 Bombshell Preview

Last week I was lucky enough to attend Spectrum Collection's AW16 preview event, and be among the first to see their amazing Bombshell brush collection in all it's glory. The event was held in near Soho in central London, and it was a great opportunity to meet the Spectrum girls and lots of other lovely bloggers, as well as seeing the Bombshell brushes ahead of their launch at the end of September.

Spectrum was started by sisters Sophie and Hannah a couple of years ago, and before long, the brands' beautiful brushes with their pastel handles and ombre bristles were all over social media. Yep, these brushes are probably the most Instagrammable on the market, plus add to the fact that they are seriously affordable (brushes start at just £3.99) and are cruelty free and 100% vegan, well, you can see why Spectrum are the makeup brush brand of the moment.

The event space had been decorated beautifully with pictures of campaign girl Chloe Lloyd adorning the walls, and flowers by Palais Flowers dotted in among the stars of the show, the Bombshell brushes. Sparking rose by Premier Estates was served up at the bar at the rear of the venue, and I also have to mention the almost too good to eat sweet treats by Unhampered girls which included macaroons shaped like clams, dolphin shaped cookies and chocolate covered donuts. There was also a selfie station, complete with props, which obviously was so busy all evening.

Back to the brushes, and this season Spectrum have opted for dusky pink handles, ivory bristles with fuchsia tips and rose gold metal detailing which just looks beautiful. The 12 pieces brush set comes in a holographic pink shell shaped holder with a gold chain strap, perfect for any on-the-go makeup artist, and also great for travelling. 

Another highlight of the event was that each guest had the opportunity to have a mermaid illustration created by the very talented Dom & Ink. Go check out his website give him a little follow on Instagram and Twitter!

The Bombshell collection goes on sale at the end of September, so keep your eyes peeled for the release. In the meantime, have a little browse on their website- all customers who sign up to their newsletter get 10% off their first order.
