The two mystery boxes are £34.99 each, and they’re guaranteed to include at least £100 worth of value, so I decided to buy them both to show you what’s inside. I love Spectrum Collections makeup brushes, so I was excited to get my hands on these mystery boxes.
“This Crystal inspired Mystery Box contains must-have Spectrum treats to help you create beautifully blended makeup and emphasise your eyes whilst adding some feel-good vibes to your beauty routine worth over £100!
Combining jewel-toned malachite with romantic rose quartz and iridescent touches; the crystal inspired products of this box will definitely add positive energy to your makeup bag or dressing table.
The contents of the box will remain a mystery until you receive it, however it includes a minimum of 10 items catering to every kind of beauty lover.“
The Spectrum Collections Crystal Eyes Mystery Box comes in a blush pink cardboard box, with different crystals and gemstones all over the box. It looks so luxe, and is filled to the top with Spectrum products. Let’s get on to which products are included within my box…
The first product in my Spectrum Collections Crystal Eyes Mystery Box is the Spectrum Collections C00 Rain Glow Fan Brush which is worth £19.99.
It looks like this brush was discontinued in 2018, so you can’t buy it any more, but it’s a large fan brush with a pastel blue wooden handle, a silver chrome ferrule, and rainbow coloured bristles. This is a face brush, so it’s strange to be included within this eye themed box, but I love a good fan brush.
Next up in my Spectrum Collections Crystal Eyes Mystery Box is the Spectrum Collections Malachite Essential Eye & Brow 3-Piece Set which is worth £14.99, and is another discontinued product from the brand.
It’s a pouch containing three eye and brow brushes, with a fluffy blending brush, an angled brush and a spoolie/brow duo brush. It’s a three-piece brush set, but it’s technically a four-piece set, as one of the brushes is dual-ended.
My next product in the Spectrum Collections Crystal Eyes Mystery Box is another face brush which is strange, and it’s the Spectrum Collections B01 Flat Top Buffer Brush worth £9.
It has a pastel pink wooden handle, rose gold chrome ferrule and pink bristled with a flat top design for buffing in foundation and concealer. There’s no way you could use this brush for your eye makeup, so I don’t know why it’s included within the box.
The next item in my Spectrum Collections Crystal Eyes Mystery Box is another face brush, which again is the third face brush in an eye themed mystery box.
It’s the Spectrum Collections Malachite A01 Domed Powder Brush worth £9.99. This brush has a jade coloured handle, gold chrome ferrule and green bristles, but is another brush which is now discontinued.
Little bit awkward, but we have another face brush, and it’s the Spectrum Collections A04 Tapered Finisher Brush worth £8.99, and it’s another of their pink brushes with a blush pink wooden handle, rose gold ferrule and pink bristles.
The next product in the Spectrum Collections Crystal Eyes Mystery Box is for the eyes thankfully, and it’s the Spectrum Collections Oceana 5 Piece Eye Brush Set worth £24.99. It’s a beautiful iridescent pouch, containing five eye brushes with clear iridescent handles, and they look so pretty!
The last product in the Spectrum Collections Crystal Eyes Mystery Box is not for the eyes, and it’s the Spectrum Collections Oceana Ocean Drops in Sea Glass worth £13. It’s a liquid highlighter for the face and eyes, and Sea Glass looks like a pretty, iridescent white shade.
I feel a little mixed about the Spectrum Collections Crystal Eyes Mystery Box. In terms of value for money, it absolutely delivers as the combined value is £100.95, so it does contain the £100 as promised.
Most of the products within the box are discontinued too, so it looks like it’s a way to sell off old stock which is fine, they’re still amazing brushes, but it’s something to consider when ordering the boxes.
However, this is an eye themed box and there were only two eye brush products, and five face brush products, so that’s really poor. If you’re going to do mixed boxes, market them as being mixed boxes.
It’s not fair to sell the boxes as being eye boxes and face boxes, to then not deliver on that promise. Spoiler alert, but the face box is much better, as I only got one eye brush product, but this Spectrum Collections Crystal Eyes Mystery Box was a little disappointing with the box being almost completely face brushes.
