The Vintage Cosmetic Company

I have become obsessed with finding new beauty products recently and seem to be buying beauty boxes left right and centre! So I've decided to choose a brand from the boxes each month and dedicate myself to trying out some other products by them. This month I am trying a selection of products from The Vintage Cosmetic Company

I first received a pair of tweezers from the Glamour Beauty Edit box from Latest in Beauty. I loved these tweezers the moment I saw them; apart from the stainless steel tip, the body is coated in a rubbery material that makes them easy to grip for precise plucking. Despite the fact I didn't use them for a few weeks because they looked too pretty, I became obsessed with them instantly! I feel really dainty using them, so I don't use my normal cheap tweezers any more (I still have them because my partner uses them, and he is not touching these!) These tweezers are just £8 and they also come in a floral pattern. 

A few weeks later an email for the Latest In Beauty Editor's Pick appeared in my inbox. As soon as I saw the Shadow brush, I didn't hesitate to buy the box. I've dreamt about buying these brushes as I drooled over the website, but didn't want to spend that much on them. (I'm a cheapskate you see!) I'm glad I bought the box (review to come soon!) because I really wanted to test one of the brushes before I splurged on some! It's a great brush, very precise and applies my shadow smoothly.
I always end up getting shadow in places other than my eyelid because I buy cheap, low quality brushes that need to carry excess shadow to apply properly. With this brush, however, you don't need to use a lot of shadow to get the desired amount on the lid. Sweet! I don't waste any shadow and my eyes look fabulous!  I am also loving how cute the brush is. I find this shade of pink girly yet classy. This is only £7, and the brushes range up to £16 per brush if you buy them individually. I think I'm going to buy a few more...

Next I purchased a set of Betty Lashes. I've only ever owned one set of lashes and I absolutely loved them, so I thought I'd try out these. At £6 these are a bargain. I haven't used them yet, but I'm very happy with the product itself.  I'm a sucker for packaging and I absolutely love the design. As much as I can't wait to wear these lashes, I really don't want to take them out of the box as they look so pretty!
These lashes come with glue and there are 5 different lash styles to choose from (or you can buy all 5 for £15).

After stalking their website for hours on end (drooling non-stop), I've just decided I want absolutely everything they sell. I'm asking for a load of products for my birthday next month, hopefully I get a few bits! My main wants are;

Have you tried any products from The Vintage Cosmetic Company? Do you love the brand as much as I do? 


  1. These items are so pretty! xo


    1. I've just splurged on more because they are so cute! xoxo

  2. These lashes look fab, but I prefer lashes that are clear so then you dont need to use liquid liner!


    1. I've tried clear ones and they are so easy so use when you want a more "natural" look. I see what you mean about these, but they are good if you are wearing eyeliner!

      Instant follow btw! xoxo

  3. I didn't know of this brand until now! Their packaging and design are so lovely and those lashes look amazing.. I would also look to give this eyeshadow brush a try, looks so lush
