I have a rather tragic tale to tell. I was sent this absolutely gorgeous bag full of beauty tools from The Vintage Cosmetic Company courtesy Boots Middle East, and got click-happy as soon as I got them out of the bag.
Then…horror of horrors…I lost the camera’s memory card! And here’s the thing; I had already thrown away most of the packaging, and packed up the lovely tools nice and compact into my beauty drawer.
How was I to do a blog post? 😦 And then I lost my keys this morning (yes, I am a pro at losing things of late!), and poured out the contents of my handbag and there it was, this miniscule little plastic square that held far too many of my precious clicks! Hurrah!
So here you go… a whole gallery of clicks showcasing the delightfully adorable packaging on The Vintage Cosmetic Company’s products. I’ve always been a fan of floral, pastel shabby-chic and bet this in itself is enough to make most girls want to splurge.
But here’s the thing; the products within the pretty parcels are just as amazing!
Apart from the packaging being ultra cute (ok I get it, enough already! The packaging really is pretty gorgeous, even though I did have to chuck it all out and risk losing the chance to blog about it when my memory card got lost!) I love how each product comes with instructions and very handy beauty tips to boot.
I was sent two of The Vintage Cosmetic Company’s eye-shadow brushes.
The Shadow brush is designed for eye-shadow application on the eye lids. The bristles of this brush have been cut to the ideal length for precisely filling up the lids without smudging. Best of all, the soft bristles of the brush really adheres to product beautifully, and makes colour blending a breeze.
Check out the packaging for more tips on how to ‘Shine in the Shadows’!
The other eye-shadow brush I was sent is The Vintage Cosmetic Company’s Precision brush. This brush features tightly packed bristles with the pointy edge of a sharpened pencil. This is the kind of brush I never knew I needed so badly! It makes ‘precision’ eye-shadow applications so much easier. Cat eye? Can do. High smolder shadow? Done! And like the Shadow brush, this too comes with easy to do instructions.
The Vintage Cosmetic Company is a cruelty-free brand, and no cutsie animals were harmed in the production of these brushes. The bristles are 100% synthetic.
The Vintage Cosmetic Company’s Slanted Tweezers is as pretty as it is practical. With it’s gorgeously pretty floral print, this set of tweezers is easily the prettiest I’ve ever owned. The slanted tip makes picking out even the most stubborn of follicles a breeze. Even the tweezers packaging comes with tips!
I’ve owned a few eyelash curlers in the past, but after discovering quite a few amazingly good mascaras that do the curling for me, this was but a forgotten tool. Then I get this reminder from The Vintage Cosmetic Company!
The Vintage Cosmetic Company’s Eyelash Curler comes with extra cushions for when the ones on the curler wear out, and the simple step-by-step instructions on the packaging made me take it out and put it to use.
I was also sent two packs of The Vintage Cosmetic Company’s False Eyelashes. This is a product I have shied away from. As a contact lens wearer, I have super sensitive eyes and the idea of gluing lashes onto my lids freaks me out.
But The Vintage Cosmetic Company makes it look so simple and tempting! I was sent the long-lashed, flirty-dramatic Gracie and the more sober, thicker Nancy.
The names represent two very pretty retro chics, all glammed up in retro galore. They may look very alike, but their personalities shine through rather differently to match the lashes they represent.
I hear you ladies! I promise to give these falsies a try! Stay tuned peeps, I’m taking a leap of faith 😉
To sum it up, The Vintage Cosmetic Company offers high quality beauty tools in adorably cute packaging. Look them up at your nearest Boots Pharmacy store, and browse their collection on their website. You’ll be seeing more of these beauties in my upcoming posts 🙂
