Disney fans, listen up! 

Just when when you thought your collection was complete, Spectrum announced they're launching a range of Little Mermaid-themed makeup brushes – and they're absolutely magical. 

According to Cosmopolitan, the beauty brand has teamed up with Disney to spoil us with a series of cuter-than-cute collabs that are due to drop throughout the year. 

Speaking to the magazine, a spokesperson for the company said: "We have always loved Disney so when the potential partnership came about and meetings started to happen, it seemed like a dream come true.

"With our current Glam Clam being one of our best sellers and our other mermaid-themed products, it made sense to do The Little Mermaid, it is also one of our favourite films, but then we have so many favourites so of course we couldn't just stop at one range…"

The six-piece collection contains treasures galore with both Ariel and Ursala taking centre stage. 

From brush sets to makeup 'treasure chests', the entire range is vegan and cruelty free with 1 per cent of the revenue going to Plastic Bank, a charity that pay local communities to clean plastic up from the oceans.

Here's a sneak peek of what to expect:

No word yet on what the next Disney collab will be, but we're excited to see what they've got in store. 

The Spectrum x Disney The Little Mermaid range launches Thursday, May 31. 



Do you find that no matter how often you clean your makeup brushes, they're never really THAT clean?

Yeah same.

I've bought all the contraptions, used various types of washes, and have even blow dried my brushes.

And yet, they're always dirty. No matter what. 

So when I saw a Reddit user offering a solution to my beauty woes, I was intrigued. 

Pink And Gold Professional Cosmetic Makeup Brush Set -SheIn(Sheinside)

The user, which goes by the name of SuperiorPeach, shared some sweet knowledge about how to clean your makeup brushes. 

"People are going to be horrified by this, but I put my brushes in the washing machine."

"I pre-soak them in a soapy solution to start the product breaking down, put them in a pillowcase, tie it shut and wash them all at once on a warm/delicate/no spin cycle. They come out spotless and I haven't had one fall apart yet."

She went on to explain that she tends to place the brushes in the wash with a few towels, so none of them get hurt.

We get that girl, makeup brushes are PRICEY.

Anyway, this is something I plan on trying ASAP, so I'll let you know how I get on. 



Winter is coming ladies, and so are an amazing set of fancy Game of Thrones inspired makeup brushes – YAY.

That's right ladies, you can officially purchase a beautiful set of makeup brushes that are based on the wonderful world of Westeros. 

The amazing people at The Catch 96 have released a set of eight cosmetic brushes, and they're honestly so fab.

The Catch™ Game of Thrones Makeup Brush (Set of 8)

Each brush has an engraved metal handle (so fancy), tipped with one of the Family House Emblems and uses high quality synthetic bristles – cruelty free, what's not to love?

The sets include a flat thick liner brush, a tapered blending brush, a flat long packing brush, a flat shader, and a blending brush.

The brushes contain emblems of each of the proud houses of Westeros, such as the Starks and the Lannisters.

Oh, and they also arrive in a custom pouch for safe keeping.

The brushes are available in four gorgeous shades; rose gold, silver, bronze, and copper; but we are seriously loving the bronze set – they just look super authentic or something. 

The good news keeps coming though, because this magical set of makeup brushes won't break the bank.

The eight brushes will set you back a reasonable $39.95, which works out at around a fiver per brush – not too shabby.

But be ready because if you fancy getting your paws on a set of these babies, get your order in fast as they are quickly selling out, and won't be available to re-order until October.



So, it's been 13 years since one of the greatest movies of the modern age hit our cinema screens, and yet not a week goes by when we don't consider wearing pink on Wednesdays.

Mean Girls will always hold a special place in our hearts, and now, it holds a special place in our makeup bags too.

Spectrum, a UK based makeup brush brand, are releasing a Mean Girls brush set, complete with its very own Burn Book.

But don't worry – this one isn't filled with accusations that anyone made out with a hot dog or has the amazing ability to surpress their gag reflex.

Instead it's filled with a collection of gorgeous pink and purple makeup brushes, and they're like, really pretty.

The collection launches with three options. The 10-piece brush set (without Burn Book), the 10-piece brush set with Burn Book bag, or the full size Burn Book which doesn't come with any brushes, but can hold up to 40.

What's more, Spectrum have confirmed that this is just phrase one of the collection, with more additions expected shortly.

The makeup brush set launches August 30 on Spectrum online.

Get in, loser. We’re going shopping.



Whether you're a fully fledged MUA, or just an occasional dabbler in the world of beauty, chances are you've probably got a Real Techniques brush floating around your makeup bag.

The brushes, made by Youtuber sisters, Sam and Nic, are some of the most affordable on the market and have quickly become a favourite among makeup nerds everywhere.

Well, lucky for us, the brand are about to launch a brand new collection and we could not be more excited.

Inspired by blue squirrels, the Real Techniques' PowderBleu collection promises to be the softest yet.

The 6-piece collection includes a Soft Complexion Brush, Soft Powder Brush, Soft Finishing Brush, Soft Shadow Brush, Soft Kabuki Brush and a Plush Powder Puff.

The brushes have been designed to mimic squirrel hair, but don't worry, no animals were harmed during the manufacturing process.

Sam and Nic have used FauxBleu™ technology and synthetic hairs to create the super soft new range.

An you haven't even heard the best part. 

The PowderBleu brushes have been made to work specifically with powder products, meaning that their soft touch will provide flawless application whilst keeping the makeup underneath intact.


The brushes will hit Boots stores across the country this July, and will be available to order directly from the Real Techniques website. 



Sometimes, you have to throw the idea of night cream and collagen patches out the window, and simply embrace your inner child when it comes to makeup.

Truthfully, we all have a special place in our hearts for the magical and the mysterious, so when we saw these makeup brushes – we HAD to share them with all you wonderful ladies.

The six-piece mermaid makeup brush kit looks like it has fallen straight out of our glitter-filled Disney dream world, and we all of sudden feel like kids again. 

The 6-piece set of Pearl Mermaid brushes is cruelty-free and synthetic-free and will set you back a very reasonable €25, which seems like a small price to pay for magical joy.

The brushes come in a number of different shades, and shapes – but we are mainly in love with the sparkly and iridescent mermaid fins, that have Ariel written all over them.

The wonder doesn't stop there though, as Glamour Shop also have unicorn makeup brushes on offer, and we kind of need them too.

Also on offer are rainbow makeup brushes, that will genuinely make you enjoy putting your face on n the morning (we promise)!

You can get your claws on these majestic utensils on Glamour Shop's website, and they will deliver worldwide.

We love hearing about new makeup and cosmetic gadgets, especially when they're Irish – #Nationalpride. 

Anyway, with that in mind, we wanted to introduce you to Powder 'n' Pout Cosmetics – a fantastic brand that we have just discovered. 

Located in the heart of Donegal is a hair and makeup salon with a delightful Alice in Wonderland theme called Powder 'n' Pout, owned by the fantastic Aisling Cunningham.

As a creative and extremely talented makeup artist, Aisling has tried and tested pretty much every brush brand on the planet, and realised that there was a gap in the market for brushes that were high in quality and affordable. 

And so, Powder 'n' Pout Cosmetics was born – and we couldn't be more delighted. 

Aisling believes that the right makeup tools are just as important as your choice of makeup, and this belief is truly reflected in her amazing products. 

Every Powder 'n' Pout brush represents a brand that delivers high quality, longevity and affordability to all makeup users – plus, they look fantastic, too. 

The brand offers a wide range of individual brushes that would give anyone that coveted flawless skin, with prices starting at just €6, which is extremely reasonable for such high quality products. 

Our personal favourite item on offer is the flat contour brush, which will make you look like the superstar you know you are. 

Powder 'n' Pout also offer fantastic brush sets, that are such excellent value for money!

All in all, this brand is amazing, and Irish – which is always a nice touch for us. 



Festival season is just around the corner, so we have already spent many the hour looking up the boho-chic stylings of fellow festival goers for makeup inspiration for this coming summer.

While there are plenty of glitter and crystal filled lookes online, there are very few free spirited makeup tools doing the rounds.

Luckily, we spotted these magical rose quartz makeup brushes from BH Cosmetics, and the gorgeous handles on these brushes could double up as portable healing crystals in your festival yurt. 

The divine brush set is so pretty it hurts, and we are loving the hippy-esque look. 

The set includes six eye makeup brushes and three face brushes for contouring, highlighting, and applying blush.

Clearly the word has gotten out about these festival-worthy makeup brushes, as the set is currently sold out, but as soon as it's back in stock we'll be packing these crystal-handled applicators in our three-day weekend bags. 

Contouring while cleansing your chakras? Yes please.



Today is a GREAT day, because we have discovered a collection of makeup brushes that put all others to shame. 

Yep, we would like to introduce you to unicorn makeup brushes 2.0…

These majestic brushes feature rainbow horn handles and super soft multi-coloured bristles.

The utensils are finished with a gold setting, and are vegan friendly, so no unicorns were harmed in the making of the brushes. 

Rainbow Unicorn Brushes - 7 Piece Set - Pre-Order

Oh and it gets better, because a portion of each sale of these brushes goes to First Book, an amazing charity that donates books to disadvantaged children. 

So really, buying these brushes is a form of giving back…

Still not convinced? Well, would it help if we told you that these STUNNING makeup brushes were extremely affordable?

Yes, we thought so.

At just €28, there really is no excuse not to invest in these unicorn wonders. 

So much to love… 


FINALLY a set of beautiful makeup brushes that won't break the bank! 

The new Royal & Langnickel Moda Prismatic Pro Makeup Brushes are here, and they're pretty darn fabulous. 

If a unicorn and a mermaid came together to create a set of cosmetic brushes, these babies would be the result. 

The brushes are a glorious holographic shade of purple and turquoise, making them perfectly Instagrammable. 

Ths set of four flat-handle brushes will set you back a reasonable €24, and will be available online in the coming weeks. 

This unusual style of makeup brush has become very popular lately, with the popularisation of Artis brushes (CRAZY expensive, not worth it). 


I finally found the new Moda Prismatic Face Perfecting Kit!!! I went to several different Wal-Marts and it was a total bust every single time. Either they didn't have them, someone never wanted to check or they didnt have them on the shelf. Last night I asked some guy from the hardware department if he could look up an item for me. He said they had 3 in stock and maybe someone didn't pull it from the back yet. He said he would check for me. While he was gone, I told myself "If they don't have it just wait until February." Low and behold he comes walking back to the hardware department with the brushes in hand!! These brushes were tough to find!! They're super soft and beautiful!! I can see why they flew off the shelves. @royallangnickel do not disappoint with their products! #royallangnickel#royallangnickelmoda#modabrushes#modaprismatic#modaprismaticbrushes#royallangnickelprismatic#beautifullybold#promakeupbrushes#makeupfavorites#makeupbrushes

We are really excited to try these magical beauties! 



Does the idea of cleaning your makeup brushes just seem like the biggest ordeal EVER? Yeah… same.

Image result for makeup brushes

Experts say we should be cleaning our cosmetic utensils at least once a month… which sounds excessive, but it's actually not.

A Reddit user recently shared a number of super-zoomed photos of her three-week-old makeup brushes, and all we can say is EWWW. 

The user used an iPhone and a Mpow macro lens to capture the true nastiness behind applying makeup. 

Dirty brushes are not just gross, they can cause your skin to break out and the likes. 

While we appreciate that dirty brushes are a concern, sometimes ignorance really is bliss.

If you need us, we'll be at home SCRUBBING all our brushes. 



Wizards and muggles alike will absolutely ADORE these snake-tastic new makeup brushes.

Sonia Kashuk has released a collection of cosmetic utensils that even Draco Malfoy would use. 

The sleek set features 10 brushes, including a contour brush, foundation brush, eyeshadow smudger, and brow spoolie.

They are black in colour (like the soul of the Dark Lord) and have a gold gilded serpent slithering up the handle.

You can also buy a groovy brush holder separately, to keep your gorgeous Slytherin brushes organised.

The set of 10 magical brushes are pretty reasonably priced, at just 39. 

A message for the Sorting Hat: PLEASE put us in Slytherin.
