Vintage Inspired Cosmetics ♥

I love buying make up at the best of times and it doesn't take much to influence me to spend a few quid at Boots, but when you see make up in truly pretty, covetable packaging, it makes that decision to buy so much easier! I have found the below make up finds that seem to be inspired by a vintage era, and they look so lovely, they're too nice to lock away in a cosmetics bag!

I love this 'Brightening Violet Powder' from Besame Cosmetics. Besame specialise in vintage inspired products as well as packaging and this powder is meant to 'add a hint of brightness and instant lift' and also is scented, presumably with violets! This is perfect for powdering your nose!




I love the sleek and simple gold fluted packaging of this Estee Lauder Hydra Lustre Lipstick. It's very art deco and is a beautiful addition to any handbag. I love this smokey pink shade too. 






Not necessarily vintage inspired, but this reminds of me of a vintage pocket watch! This 'One Hot Minute' face powder comes in a lovely rose gold tin with clock face detail. 



No vintage look is complete without flirty feline lashes! These 'Kitty' re-usable lashes are only £6 from The Vintage Cosmetic Company, and come in very cute vintage floral packaging!




And last but not least, another Besame product - a pot of rouge. Oh so vintage! I love this and I think the little gold and red tin is perfect. Unfortunately my cheeks are rosy enough at the best of time without the need for more redness, but if you want to rouge it up like the good old days then you have to do it in style! It's a cream rouge so much easier to apply for us 21st century-goers. This can also be applied to both cheeks and lips.


Do you have a favourite 'vintage' branded cosmetic?
