Vega Retractable Blush Brush Review
Hello IMBB Sweeties! :puchhi:
I am back with another makeup brush review that I bought 2 weeks back. I was eyeing this brush since 1 month when I last saw it at urbantouch.com website. So here is my take on it.
Taken from www.urbantouch.com
Price– Rs 140 I got this at Rs 105 after discount
What the Company Says?
On the very first day when urban touch website uploaded this brush, I didn’t order & just waited and to my astonishment, :woot: it was temporarily out of stock within few hours. So I thought this must be really good that why so many people buying it on the first day itself. I placed my order immediately when they got this in their stock.
In the picture that I had seen at urbantouch.com the retractable blush brush looked bit different than what it really is, check the foremost pic. The bristles looked very smooth and soft :haanji: but on the contrary I found them to be quite scratchy on my cheeks :yikes: while applying blush. The bristles are not very smooth and many of them are poking here and there. :yuck: The bristles are quite dense though. After washing 2-3 times, I found bristles are not that strong and I was losing few with each wash. With each wash they got more and more coarse. :shocked: The packaging is very attractive and travel friendly that easily fits in your brush but quality fails. This blush brush is more dense and coarse than regular Vega blush brush available for Rs90 that I have too. Instead of applying blush, these days I am using it as powder brush but it picks lots of product so from my side I am quite disappointed. :((
Pros of Vega Retractable Blush Brush:
-Packaging is very attractive.
-Its travel friendly, easily fits in your purse. :thumbsup:
-The bristles are quite dense and fluffy.
-Can be used as powder brush too.
-Reasonable price for Rs-140
-Made up of natural hair that picks the right amount of the product. (Mentioned in the cover but I don’t agree to it).
-Easy to blend the blush. (I don’t agree, mentioned in the packaging cover)
-Available at all cosmetic stores.
Cons of Vega Retractable Blush Brush:
-The bristles are feel very scratchy on my cheeks. :yuck:
-Doesn’t blend the blush properly.
-The bristles are very coarse and poking here and there. :pan:
-They pick a lot of quantity of the product.
-The bristles are not strong enough and you lose few strands with each wash. :haanji:
-The regular Vega blush brush is far better than this at lesser price.
-The packaging is so slippery na that when I hold and use blush or loose powder it just slips from my hand.
Rating:-2.5 out of 5
Will I repurchase? :nababana: Just one word- Never !

hey rids..which company ka kabuki and what was the cost?
she has super cute brush sukanya :smug: :smug: :smug:
I feel like looting her of that cute cute boorosh. Not fair. :smug: :smug:
Everywhere I see,I can find only boring brushes or if it is cute,poora ka poora bekar kaam karega. :scream:
hahahahaha ….. me luv ma brushessssss :yahoo: :yahoo: :thanks:

I have body shop kabuki brush thts not retractable but very small and fits into purse, it has small pouch too!
:S good buy or bad buy?
bad buy of course, but for 105 its nt completely useless
taps..hw many brushes do u have….?????????? :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: every third 4 day u review a new brush..give sme to me na..inne saro ka kya krogi… :waaa: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
:tongue: 😀 Me very greedy re, you wont believe i have everything thing two or more in number, whther it is my favorite skin care product or my eyeliner or kajal or brushes even ! Tum mujhse le lena, soch rehi hun kuch weeks baad sab sale mein de dun! :tongue:
tapas guess you should have picked one from TBS only. this is such a dodo brush. :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali:
I agree. It looks so nice at first…I would have bought it if I had seen it anywhere…But a coarse and utterly inconvenient blush brush only deserves :spank:
i know it sounds so useful. like you can carry it around and all. bt this toh is such a waste. I mean who wants a scratchy jhadoo type feel on cheeks. :yuck: :yuck: :yuck:
Haan when ever i use it na, my face becomes red whereever i use it ! :pissedoff:
Natural blush with nothing but a brush! :hihi:
i hve 1 powder brush from vega..nd its bristles shed a lot..so i dnt use it./. :hunterwali: :hunterwali:
i think i had one blush brush from vega longg back and it was nice bt then i totally shifted to sigma . now toh cant use vega brushes at all. The quality of brushes really does no justice. :pissedoff:
rati..z sigma nice..coz vega nd sigma cmes in same price range na…
Same price, sigma and vega, kya bol rehi ho ? :shocked:
nae kya..see ma gk abt makeup. :(( ..yaar..lo mujhe ye b nae pta… 😥 :bash:
Please check sigma site, you would come to know better!
no not at all sigma brushes ka price and quality dono vega se bahut bahut high hai
check this jigyasa. 😀 https://makeupandbeauty.com/category/sigma/
Jigyasa when i bought the vega poder brush i was confused whether to use on my face or to use it to paint my wall! 😆
:lol2: :lol2: ..den u painted ur wall na.. :specs:
Rati i have body shop blush brush, not the retractable one, i found the regular body shop blush brush much better and cheap comparative to the retractable one, so didnt buy!
ahhh i see. :))
Haaain?! Poking? Coarse? I will never buy this then. :nababana:
Yaaa dont buy it!!
I thank you for trying and testing it….I wold have been murdered if I wasted money on this thing…Murdered by myself,that is! :lol2:
You are always welcome, its bad but for rs 105, i dont except much, you must have heard- itne me itnaich milega!! :tongue:
Taps Body Shop ka brush use karne ke baad u will neva like Vega brushes :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue:
Nahi re aisa nahi he, agar body shop nahi kharidti then also ye mujhe acha nahi lagta!
e baba-at first I saw ur blush brush and thought wowwwiee-but of what use is a brush if its scratchy :waiting: :waiting: -only today I was examining my brushes and found my vega blush and large powder brushes to be scratchy too-may be the same quality of fibre is used here too :scream: :scream: :scream: I like my oriflame blusher brush a lot :rose: :rose: :rose:
I have regular vega blush brush and even powder brush, but this retractable blush brush is more coarse and rough than those even!
pta nhi kyu.. i’m nvr tempted to buy vega brushes :yikes: :yikes: :yikes:
the vega brushes had nice quality before-I have a very good eyeshadow brush from Vega-I bought about 2 years ago-but if u see their current eyeshadow brush you will think its a jharu :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali:
the eye shadow brush from vega is very soft the foundation brush form vega is awesome too, very soft but others are ok ok!

Ya Rati, I have seen it at the shop! I liked the general body shop blush brush better than retarctable one!
tell me someone which are better? Sigma brushes or MAC? is it a stupid question? :methinks: :methinks: :methinks: :methinks: :methinks:
suma you know have been using both and i feel sigma brushes are pretty good. It’s been almost an year i have bene using them almsot everyday and they are still in pretty good condition. i have two two sets. 😀 bt i guess there is no replacement for MAC 217 and 219 in sigma. sachhi.
oooh ok ok.. I have been planning to invest big time in some branded brushes…till now i ve been chalao-ing kaam with Vega and FACES… so u r saying MAC 217 and 219 and rest from Sigma?
thankoooooooooooooooooooo 😀 :clap: :clap: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi:
yes mam. 😀 😀 :puchhi:
Oh I was also looking at these brushes on urban touch… the price is a steal.. not good you say?
na re nt at all
I’m waiting for some money to accumulate then me too planning to buy from sigma. At least their eye brushes. Abhi ram me using drugstore only- but they are also not so bad.
Ohh really whats the price of the oriflame one??
yes exactly taps. i ahve that oriflame retractable brush too and its awesome- u shud try it.
Okk, but price kitna he?
around 300 or 350 perhaps. its worth the cost….will last u a lifetime :toothygrin:
Disappointing! I have the Vega blush brush (normal one) and I like the shape so much that even though its scratchy I like using it more than my softer but flat shaped TBS blush brush!
Yes ankita i have the regular vega blush brush too! I like tht a lot!! But this one is much horrible buddy! The regular one is much more soft than this!
i got this one long back n i hate it :yuck:
so rough :yikes: :yikes:
now i have access to better brushes :smug:
i would have fallen for it..pertaining to my li’l knowledge about make brushes
thnx taps..bacha liya :jiggy1:
I have tried only a couple brushes from Vega and didnt like any of them. But they were one of the first ever makeup brushes I bought so they still sit in my brush case 😉
I liked their foundation brush very much, even blush brush is ok !
