Have I hit the luck of the draw or what glamour babes! First I find out Makeup Revolution has hit our Ulta stores in the U.S. and now this! The Vintage Cosmetics Company has been spotted with my own two little eyes and purchased at T.J. Maxx here in the big apple! If you love all things vintage, than you’ll love this company! All of their accessories (hair brushes, hair clips, manicure kits, face brushes) are inspired by the awesome era of the 1950’s. I was sold immediately by this retro theme. I’m a girl who loves all things pin-up and the 50’s have been my all time favorite era since I can remember. The Make-up brushes looked (and are) divine, all packaged up in sweet little boxes of polka dots and floral prints with some great little tips and tricks on the backing of each box.
Okay, enough about the packaging, lets talk brushes! The three I was able to nab before anyone else was the foundation brush, bronzing brush, and the powder brush ($5.99-$6.99) I so wish I found more, they are seriously the prettiest brushes I have laid eyes on. I hope you guys and dolls can find some and try these brushes for yourselves, they will be a great addition to your collection of face brushes.
The Foundation Brush known as The stuff that dreams are made of…….(people let me tell ya bout my best friend)
We all know what this one does, am I right? It is practically a no brainer lol.
The foundation brush works perfectly with both liquid and cream foundations. I don’t use foundations as I have mentioned before in my posts, but when I use this brush with my liquid BB creams, my skin has a flawless, silky finish, minus the streaking (can I get a high five for a photoshop finish?! Anyone? Don’t leave me hangin). I also use this one to blend in my concealer under my eyes or when I want to add some shimmer to my brow bones. The rounded tip works like a charm, blending my product evenly and streak free.
The Bronzing Brush known as Tan, bam! Thank you Ma’am! (so cheeky I know!).
This nice large, soft domed shaped brush will provide even distribution of your bronzing powder, creating your beachy sun-kissed look with just a sweep of the brush. Yes, yes, we all know how this one works too. Dab the head of the brush, tap away any excess bronzing powder, sweep along the forehead, cheeks, and jawline. Voila! Your now the ultimate bronze goddess, it’s time to turn some heads. This brush is awesome. I love that I can build up or play down with my bronzers or highlighters. If I want a little bit of shimmer or feel like strobing, not a problem. I can just dab, tap, and apply, it’s as simple as that. If I’m wanting more of a contour on my cheeks, all I got to do is swirl my brush in my bronzer powder and buff in those high cheekbones. Since the bronzing brush is quite large it can also be used as a powder brush as well. I use this with a lot of my finishing powders once I finished my master piece, my beautiful face of course!
And lastly, the Powder Brush better known as Lights! Camera! Action! (I’m ready for my close up Mr. Deville)
This lighter than air rounded shape brush creates a smooth and flawless complexion that will last all day. You can actually use this brush for a number of things. How I love a good multi-tasking face brush, don’t you?! It can be used as a stippling brush for liquid foundations, perfect for applying mineral makeup, and you can use this brush with any face powder. My favorite way to use this brush is basic. I use it with all of my powder blushes. I love the smooth, non-patchy finish this brush creates on my cheeks and I can build up my blushes if I need to. If I want soft and sweet or bold and chic, this brush has got me covered. I did notice a bit of shedding with this brush, but almost all of my powder brushes do this, even my most expensive ones I own (cough, Mac, cough).
For all of you animals lovers out there The Vintage Cosmetics Company line is cruelty free and all of their brushes are made from synthetic bristles, which are super duper soft. The gorgeous cream handles are lightweight, long, and easy to use when needing perfect precision. The prices for the brushes I purchased range (fingers crossed my pounds to dollars conversions are correct) between $18 to $22. Totally worth purchasing in my opinion if you could not get them at T.J. Maxx. All in all, I give The Vintage Cosmetics Company an A+ for their beautiful line of brushes, you certainly won me over. Well done lads! I hope I will see your entire collection in the states real soon. Cheers and Stay beautiful! Xo.
