Another brand that I miss is da Vinci, a line of cosmetics brushes that are handmade in Germany. You know that the Germans always make good stuff! (thanks Vince and ShamWOW!). I purchased its Smokey Eyes set and its cleaning soap (long before Beautyblender came out with its own version) from Douglas, an outpost of Parfümerie Douglas, Germany’s largest chain of beauty stores. Alas, Douglas pulled out of the US market.
I wrote to da Vinci, and here is how it responded:
