The Vintage Cosmetic Company Rose Gold Tweezers

Hey guys! I finally got around to using this beauty tool from my ipsy January 2017 Glam Bag but I was left so disappointed! Here’s my take on the The Vintage Cosmetic Company Rose Gold Tweezers.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Rose Gold Tweezers

What I love about this product? The color is beautiful. The packaging it comes in is pretty and different for a tweezer. It seems to exude a lot of promise. Using this is pretty straightforward and easy.

What I don’t like about this product? It fell really short of my expectations! I’ve used many brands of tweezers before from Tweezerman to Revlon to Avon and even one from Solingen just to name a few. This reminded me a bit of the one I had from AVON but ten times worse! It seemed more eager to “cut” the hairs I wanted to tweeze than pull it. I’m not quite sure too if there’s a problem with the grip of these tweezers or what but when compared side by side (quite literally) against Tweezerman and Solingen tweezers, there was more pain with the ones from The Vintage Cosmetic Company (when it actually pulls the hair out and not cut it). No bueno! This will just be an extra pair I have in the drawer — definitely not a replacement for my regular tweezers quality. I’ve tried this many times to make sure what I’m seeing (and feeling) is consistent.

ipsy January 2017 Glam Bag

Happy Sunday! I got this in about a week ago but didn’t get around to taking pictures until this weekend. It’s not a bad start of the year with ipsy! Here’s my take on the ipsy January 2017 Glam Bag.

ipsy January 2017 Glam Bag

The bag is something out of the box for me. It grew on me though and I can’t wait to use it. It’s the material mostly but it grew on me more by now and it kinda looks sporty! First item that caught my eye is the -417 Hand Moisturizer. I haven’t used it yet but I’m a sucker for hand creams and moisturizers especially at this time of the year. Next up is the Pretty Woman Nail Polish. The shade I got this in is called I Can’t Deal. It looks to me like a greige type of shade, not really my thing but I know someone who would look good with this shade. Then we have the Smashbox Cosmetics Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35. The shade I got this in is LIGHT/MEDIUM, which I think it the right one for me. I don’t use this type of product much but BB creams can be worn alone like a moisturizer, if I remember right, so I’ll give it a shot as such. Next we have the Trust Fund Beauty Lip Gloss. The shade I got this in is called Method To The Madness. It looks to be a pretty coral shade but I’m not sure if I’m going to keep this or not. As I said many times in my past ipsy Glam Bag posts, I have too many lip products open already. Last up is The Vintage Cosmetic Company Rose Gold Tweezers. I’m glad that I got this in my bag as everything about the product caught my eye — the packaging, the color, the item itself and more. I found out that it’s a brand that didn’t originate in the US, so I’m glad for the opportunity to try something from them. I will be putting these to the test tonight!

Overall, not bad! Next month is Valentine’s Day month and I think they usually do something around that theme for the bag. I’m really excited to see what it may be!
