Vintage Beauty

I adore vintage beauty items!
Over the years, I’ve collected a variety of vintage goodies
like YSL brushes, old Chanel lipsticks, porcelain beauty trays

I love the faded gold color most vintage make-up items have.

My grandmother gave me this velvet Yves Saint Laurent pouch a few weeks ago.
I’m so in love with it! Do you have any vintage beauty items?

I just adore vintage anything really. I collect all sorts but I have not any actual beauty items.

I love your's and you are so lucky to have a lovely generous grandmother.

Beautiful photos. Unfortunately, the only vintage make up items I own are the old lipsticks that I need to throw out. I would a Yves Saint Laurent pouch just like that. Have a great weekend. xo

Nope, I don't have any vintage beauty stuff, but I do have some vintage bags (including some YSL!) that I looove! Love your new pouch, by the way!

Love the pouch! I have the exact same YSL brush, and I was wondering if you had any information on it such as what it is specifically used for, when it was made, how much it's worth, etc. etc. I got it passed down to me from my aunt who passed about three years ago, and the brush has been troubling me ever since. Please help!

Well I really don't know much about it. I got it from my aunt as well. It's made out from animal hair, which in most European countries now is forbidden. So it is a bit rare to buy something like this now.
