The Vintage Cosmetic Company Blusher & Concealer Brush Review

When it comes to make up brushes, I'm a bit of a novice. I probably use about 4 brushes each day and have used the same ones for a long time now (a mixture of Real Techniques, Eco Tools and my trusty Illamasqua eyebrow brush.) So when The Vintage Cosmetic Company gave me the chance to try out some of their brushes, I was more than willing to expand my collection. The packaging alone was enough to make me instantly fall in love and what was inside definitely didn't disappoint either....

First things first, can we just take a minute to admire the packaging? It's just so pretty! I almost didn't want to open them. I love the spotty and floral design and the little messages on the side of the boxes are such a cute touch too. 

Now, onto the actual brushes which are just as dreamy looking as the boxes they come in. I love the cream handles and swirly writing - in terms of appearance, The Vintage Cosmetic Co definitely tick all the right boxes.

I opted to try the blusher brush* and concealer brushas my current blusher brush is falling to pieces and I've never actually owned a concealer brush before (seriously!)

All I really ask from a blusher brush is that it's soft and picks up the product well. I found this brush super soft - much softer than my previous Eco Tools one. However, I did find that I had to swirl it around my blusher a couple of times before it picked up a decent amount of powder - but I can live with that as the natural bristles are just so smooth and gentle on my cheeks.

As I've never actually owned a concealer brush before, I don't really have anything to compare this one to. Like the blush brush, it's extremely soft and I found it blended in my concealer really well (even the really thick stuff.) I can definitely see a huge difference in the longevity and appearance of my concealer when using a brush, as opposed to my fingers. It conceals blemishes far better and I seriously can't believe I've never invested in one before! It also means I use much less product as I can just pat a small amount of concealer on with the brush rather than rubbing an excessive amount in with my fingers. 

Overall, I'm really impressed with these brushes and will definitely be adding more to my collection. I also think they'd make a great gift due to the gorgeous packaging. I do think the blusher brush is a tad pricey at £14 (in comparison to other high street options) but I see brushes as an investment that you don't have to buy often so this wouldn't really put me off as it's so soft and washes really well, too.

You can browse the entire collection here and The Vintage Cosmetic Company offer free standard delivery to the UK too which is always a bonus!
