Sweet Colors Organic Face Paint

*I received this product free for testing and reviewing purposes. All opinions expressed are my own and freely given*

Wow, it feels like I haven't sat down in front of my computer and blogged in forever! I'm so sorry for the unexpected gap in posts, my son developed Bronchiolitis (basically baby/toddler version of Bronchitis) and I've spent the last few days very occupied with that and haven't had time to sleep let alone blog. Which is why today's review items couldn't have arrived at a better time. My son is three, so you can imagine how miserable he's been these last few days. If there is one thing that will cheer up even the grumpiest kid it is face paint, and when the Sweet Colors Organic Face Paint arrived Thursday I actually got some smiles out of him.

I'm pretty particular about what I will put on my skin, but I'm 100% pickier about what I will let touch my son, so I love the concept of organic face paint. Some of that stuff you buy around Halloween time can be pretty sketchy and stuff made in China worries me to much to ever use. This face paint is lead free, dye free (so no staining, which can be a major problem with Halloween face paint), everything in it is nice and natural, vegan friendly, and made here in the USA. And despite having a compact packaging it is suppose to cover 20-25 faces, which I think is pretty awesome.

The tube comes with five colors, that all screw together for easy transportation and storage. Now because this contains coconut oil I did not do any swatches to show you the colors, but they were very pigmented and true to what you see in the tube. The white is your basic white, nice and pigmented so I can see where you could get 20-25 faces out of this. The red is a brick red, which was a little disappointing. I'd have liked to see a straight red so I could make a really pretty purple, but it did the job ok and again was very pigmented. The black was super black, perfect for doing lines and whatnot. The blue is gorgeous and have a bit of shimmer to it, so great for things like flowers and butterflies. The yellow had a touch of shimmer to, but not enough to show up really on the skin.

Our Face Painting Kit
They all applied really smoothly and blended together wonderfully to create the butterfly my son requested, which he loved. Now be warned, this does rub off fairly easily so you might want to use a setting powder on it if you want it to last a while. And as promised, there was no staining at all once I removed it. I just used a makeup removal wipe and it came off pretty easily minus the wiggly toddler. I actually turned my January Birchbox into a face painting kit for my son, which has been a huge hit. Makes it easy to transport since I promised a few people I would bring it back into work and do some more face painting. Maybe I should get a side job at the circus!

He was very excited about the butterfly.
Overall I'm really pleased with this product and feel very comfortable using this on my son's delicate skin. This is available at and at the time of this blog post was only $15.79 with free Prime shipping, which I thought was a really great price. So if you have kids or maybe want to do some of those amazing face paint jobs I see on Instagram this is a great product for you to pick up and play with.
