The Vintage Cosmetic Company has been around for some time now; this British company has a cute retro feminine look and the range encompasses accessories like fake lashes, nail tools, tweezers, bags and make up brushes. I have two of the products here – so are the products style over substance or decent buys?
Firstly, the range is very giftable (hello Christmas) and is packaged nicely in boxes so it’s ideal as presents. That said, there’s a thing called a SELF-PRESENT……
So firstly they sell a range of make up brushes and pre packaged sets, and I have the Smokey Eye Brush Set. This consists of three eye brushes which are made of synthetic hair but feel soft, and contains a shadow, angled and smudger brush.
This type of eye brush is my favourite as I tend to use denser type brushes to pack on a colour on the lid then another for blending, and that’s about it. I prefer these over looser brushes, just because of the way I tend to apply eye make up. Anyway – these brushes are very decent indeed -not a single moult and I did give the hair a yank to see if anything would come loose (nothing did) so these have been in my make up bag as they are are quite multi-tasky.
Brush 3 resembles one of my favourite must have eye brushes from NARS too.
At £16.50 for the set, you’re looking at £5.50 per brush which is very decent.
Then we have the slanted tweezers. I think I have my last pair a hard time because they were no longer gripping on to baby hairs, so these arrived just in time. These come with a plastic cap to protect the tip and one side has the vintage floral print, the other is printed.
Once again, these are good tweezers that got all the hairs I wanted them too. There was a time when I used to spend £30+ plus on luxury tweezers but these day even cheaper ones are excellent. They felt slightly sharper than Tweezerman, which meant I can get shorter hairs but not super super fine ones.
