Review and Swatches- Myface Cosmetics

myface.cosmetics has been getting some amazing press of late with celebrity followings from Gwyneth Paltrow, Salma Hayek and Kate Moss so, when I was offered the opportunity to review some of their products I jumped at the chance.

The great thing about this brand is they put their cosmetics into three categories Fair, Medium and Dark which means you can just shop your complexion. Now of course some of the Lip and Blush shades will suit an array of tones but they tell you which skin tone it was designed for. Arranging their cosmetics in this way means that once you have matched up your foundation you pretty much cant go wrong with anything else you choose, obviously providing you take your hair and eye colouring into account.

mymix Foundation £15.99

I received the mymix foundation in shade Fair 03 this shade was a tad too dark for me but with enough buffing I could just pull it off, I think I am more of a Fair 02. This foundation has a very light liquid texture, a lot like MAC’s Face and Body, with a medium coverage. This foundation has a lovely dewy finish and without a primer didn’t seem to sit in my pores at all which is a major plus.

R&B Rouge/Blusher £14.99

I received Lady Monaco which is part of the Medium complexion range however it looks lovely on my complexion. This blush is very pigmented so a little goes a very long way, the packaging is pretty nifty featuring a great sized mirror and a blush brush so, its perfect for popping straight in your handbag.

Blingtone Eyeshadows £12.99

I received Black Ice and Silver Screen. These shadows are stupidly glittery (stupidly in a good way) with hardly any glitter fall out when applied to the lid. You know what its like you buy a shadow like Blacktied from MAC which is lovely black with loads of glitter but, when you apply it to your lid its just a black shadow and the glitter is gone. These shadows keep the glitter as you will see from the pictures and that is without using a base at all. The silver shadow upon swatching doesn’t appear to be as pigmented as the black, it just seems to be silver glitter. The Black shadow I am completely in love with this out of all of the products is my fav, I have not come across a black shadow with so much pigmentation and so much glitter together in one tiny package.

Overall I really, really like this brand and would certainly like to try the rest of the Blingtone shadows and some of their lip products.

The great thing for you guys is at the moment myface.cosmetics are running a promotion which will entitle you to a full size mymix foundation with any order using code free-foundation (whilst stocks last) This is a great offer and certainly gives you the chance to try more than one item on your first order.

If you do end up ordering I would love to hear your thoughts.
