Vegan, Cruelty Free & AFFORDABLE Professional Makeup Tools | Vigo Beauty*


Things I love:

1. Bargains
2. Fluffy pets
3. Makeup
4. Professional quality products, at prices that don't require me to remortgage the family home [cos as if I actually own any property of my own to gamble LOL #poor.]

I've recently discovered a brand which incorporates & values all the above factors [and more] in the same way that I do. I frigging love it when you stumble across a company whose core values pure match your own. This brand is one that I have totes added to my love list, has a truly babein' team and are definitely one to watch - Vigo Beauty. 

Vigo Beauty sell a range of super affordable, high quality, professional beauty tools which are all 100% cruelty free & vegan friendly - and since discovering their collection a few weeks ago, I've fallen for them. HARD. Their products are insanely good and the fact that buying them helps support such brilliant brand values is just the icing on the cake for me.

They aim to provide high quality cosmetics and accessories which are novel in design and available at a reasonable price; all based on being vegan friendly [they do not use any animal products in their beauty range] and ethical. 

The full range is synthetic, animal friendly and cruelty free; providing the highest quality cosmetics without compromising their beliefs. Vigo Beauty also strive to ensure that their products retail at affordable prices, so that everyone can benefit from their collection and so that they can support foundations & charities to improve the health and beauty of the world around us. Which is just bloody lovely, isn't it?

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a few beaut items from the collection recently [to test out for myself and obsessively post about on Instagram] - which you can read about below.

Available on Amazon too [Classic Magenta | Professional Black | Twilight Purple | Blush Pink]

Vigo Beauty's Luxury Blending Sponge is a premium, unique and SUPER soft latex free beauty sponge - with an edge [literally!] Its innovative design gives you a smoother, more consistent standard in blending and reduces makeup waste. Its unique shape increases its surface coverage and boasts a flat angled edge for finer detailing; giving you great coverage when compared to other cosmetic sponges on the market.

The Luxury Blending Sponge expands over 30% when wet; which works to ensure you get maximum coverage and prime application performance. Used damp the material allows for uniform blending and streak-free application. It can be used with foundation, creams, concealers, highlighters, blushes, moisturisers, serums and powders - whatever works best for you.

I cannot recommend this sponge blender enough, to be honest. It's SO soft and the best shape for getting right into those awkward areas on the face [such as around the eyes and nose] - strong statement, but I'd say this is probably the best sponge blender I've ever used. 

It's firm, distributes product unbelievably well and is just SO soft and squishable. From the moment this little beaut landed in my life, my blending game changed forever.

Vigo Beauty Luxury SilkySponge £6.99-£9.99 each*
Choose from: Crystal Clear | Turquoise | Royal Violet | Vibrant Pink

Available on Amazon too: Crystal Clear | Turquoise | Royal Violet | Vibrant Pink
Great value multi-packs also available via Amazon SilkySponge [Double Pack] £11.99 | SilkySponge Multi Pack [All four colours for £20 with free delivery]

The SilkySponge is a unique tear-drop shaped silicone applicator; which is non-porous and has a smooth surface which allows make up to be applied with maximum surface coverage. I love that it comes in different colours - each of which are so eye-catching and Instagrammable.

These blenders give you a flawless, professional finish with minimal makeup waste. They actually reduce the amount of product that you need to use, as they don't absorb any of it; instead treating your skin to the full package. And they're so simple to use and maintain - simply wipe your SilkySponge clean with a wipe or a little water. 

Another nice feature when it comes to Vigo Beauty's silicone sponges is that they're ever so lightly fragranced; ensuring that they don't whiff of nasty solvents, like some of the other options on the market do.

I am so impressed with these blenders. They're a little firmer than others I've tried in the past, which means that they really [and I mean REALLY] glide product along the skin; making a little go the longest way

See if you guess which is which in the two swatches below - both using the exact same product, the exact same amount; yet one was swatched using this pink silicone blender and the other was swatched by a makeup blender I bought on the high street a few months ago. It's pretty clear which one's the winner!
