Powder Puffs

In as much as the texture of food greatly affects the taste of it, what you use to apply make up is just as important as the quality/brand of the cosmetic. And once you have a beautiful base, you can take your make up look to any place, natural or extreme.

I found this swansdown powder puff wand, nearly new and (vital to vintage purchases) fresh. I think it is from the 1950’s;

Almost as good as new, a happy find.

This got me thinking about swansdown puffs. They are available brand new for about Ā£30 and are purportedly a great buy for light dewy application of loose powder.

But then I can’t resist the charm of some of the vintage ones I have seen, for their quirkyness, perhaps just for decoration.



This one is available from etsy

    1. Alas, only the 1st pictures are of my one and only powder puff wand, the rest are vintage ones I found researching. Who knows, perhaps one day I will have a larger collection of kitsch ceramics puffs, rather than just the one!
      Warm Wishes, Lucy.
