Specktra is a free community and online forum with 109,700+ members who gather to discuss all things beauty and cosmetics.

The online forum includes several sections to organize discussions. The first two are for new members and community announcements. Members use sections 3 and 4 to talk about cosmetics. Inside these sections, you can find threads with make-up tutorials, cosmetic recommendations, and general beauty discussions.

On the other hand, section 5 is called "sharing your obsession". It aims to open a safe space for members to share with the rest of the community what products or routines are they currently obsessed about. Next, section 6 is for discussing fashion and self-care topics. The last few sections include a marketplace to buy and swap products, shopping deals and opportunities, and free, off-topic discussion.

An interesting feature about Specktra is the regional chat. It has different threads based on the members' location. For instance, there are different chats for Brazil, Germany, Netherlands, China, and so on. It's indeed a great beauty community to belong to if you are looking to bounce off ideas and advice with other beauty lovers worldwide.
