The Vintage Cosmetic Company Review
I have been trying out a few new make-up brushes recently and today’s review is on the Airbrush Face Brush Set from The Vintage Cosmetic Company. The brand is new to me, and you can buy the products in Boots, on their website or Feelunique. They sell a range of make-up brushes in singles or in gift sets, lashes, hair tools and make-up tools like eyelash curlers, all in their signature vintage style and packing, which has a passing resemblance to Cath Kidson prints.
The set of brushes I tested out
It has three brushes, a Foundation, Concealer and Powder brush. The set is designed to give you a flawless, airbrushed finish and is ideal for a long-lasting make-up look. The brushes have pastel pink handles and the bristles are synthetic so hypo allergenic and cruelty free. Each brush has it’s use written on the handle.

This kit is aimed at your everyday woman. One with not so many hundreds of make-up brushes as myself (it’s an addiction to be honest) so I think it’s really helpful that they have their use printed on the side.
The box features a step by step guide containing hints and tips on how to make the most of your brushes which again would be really helpful to someone new to make-up or just new to using brushes to apply them. I didn’t realise there were such people to be honest as I am so obsessed with make-up and brushes, but my friend recently told me she had never used a foundation brush (shut the front door..I nearly passed out in shock)!
Below is a summary of my thoughts on each brush in turn. And then some pictures of my make-up after having used the kit to apply my base.
I have used many types of foundation brush over the years. A paintbrush style is better for beginners and that I prefer a more flat topped buffing brush. This is good for getting your foundation on your face, but then you still need to use another brush to buff it out and blend it in or to use your fingers.
The brush has tightly compacted synthetic bristles which minimises wastage. However, you do get a lot of product on your face! Hence the need for blending in with your fingers or another brush afterwards. If you never use a foundation brush this is a good way to ease you into it. You can still use your fingers or a sponge for the second stage of blending, however If you prefer a quick application then I wouldn’t say this style is great for you. The bristles are good quality too, with no shedding when I washed them.
I really like this brush for under eye concealer application as the bristles are really soft. It’s a good size to really blend in the product and make it look even and natural. Depositing too much concealer under the eye can mean that it sinks into fine lines during the day, making you look older. So it’s a good idea to apply the minimum and blend it in really well to avoid that, this brush does that with ease.
This is my favourite brush and you can buy it by itself as well for £16.00 which I would definitely recommend. It’s perfect to use for setting powder or blending in your blusher and contour to make them look flawless.
You could even use this to apply your mineral foundation. It’s the perfect powder brush and the price is fab. It doesn’t feel prickly or sharp as some powder brushes can do and it imparts the perfect amount of colour and blends everything in well to really give you that airbrushed look.

The brushes are extremely good quality for the price with super cute packaging. If you were just to buy one brush the Powder Brush is the best out of the three. That would be a must have for me. The kit would be great for yourself if you are just wanting to get into using brushes.
The Vintage Cosmetic Company Airbrush gift set costs £22.50 I hope you enjoyed my The Vintage Cosmetic Company Review.
