I am yet to meet an individual who doesn’t light up like a child on Christmas morning upon the delivery of a parcel.
The other day, I was that excitable child when my ‘Emillie Grace Cosmetics‘ order arrived, cheering up an otherwise dreary and depressing October night.
Until now, the company had been an exclusive seller of luxury lashes and although beautiful, they aren’t something I frequently wear. So, when the highly anticipated collection of makeup brushes dropped, I just had to splurge!
The products arrived in wrapped in pink tissue sealed with a cute sticker.
Comprising of 12 rose-gold and white makeup brushes bearing the company name, this set truly does provide everyone with a tool for every stage of their makeup application.
Also included is a high-quality faux leather marble pot, perfect for displaying and storing your new possessions. Oh, and it serves as the perfect backdrop for the obligatory photo session after opening.
It took me a few days to get the gumption to try them – terrified I would ruin how pristine they are. However, when I finally did I was incredibly happy with my purchase! The synthetic faux hairs mean that the brushes are incredibly soft and blend your makeup perfectly.
The aptly named sponge – the beauty ‘EG’, does not disappoint either, it comes in a transparent cylinder and when wet, makes for flawless application of my foundation. I also get the impression that most (if not all) of my foundation ends up on my face, not soaked into the sponge – something I have often resented in other, less affordable brands.
Now, moving on to the lady herself!
The company was born earlier this year, when makeup artist and student, Emillie Grace Hylins, decided to try and turn the negatives of lockdown into an opportunity to concentrate on designing her products.
“I have loved lashes ever since I became makeup obsessed at a young age, so it seemed natural to bring out my own lashes as the first product,” Emillie explained.
Several pairs of glamorous lashes later – including the newest holiday essential, the Ivy lash – the young entrepreneur started working on the brush set. “I wanted to create a brush set that made applying makeup easy for everyone.
“As a makeup artist, I have tried many types of products, so I have got experience in knowing what makes a good product.”
So, by all accounts, the products are only going to get better, 2021 is going to be an exciting year for the company – with lots of exciting launches and surprises to look forward to.
