Oh man, trying to get caught up on everything and back in my groove after almost a week away is difficult. I am about three days behind on everything still, and new stuff to get done is coming in droves I swear. Quick and easy is the name of my style and beauty game right now, so my latest item to test out and review is perfect for my busy schedule. A tube of foundation with a built in brush sounds quick, easy, and convenient, but does it live up to my expectations?
Faces Beautiful is a liquid mineral foundation that comes in a tube with a built in brush for ease of application. I would call this a full coverage foundation more suitable for normal to oily skin. The concept is really neat, I like the attached brush since that's my current preferred method to apply my foundations anyways.
The brush twists to a locking position (off) to prevent makeup from being squeezed out while in your bag, which was a concern of mine. The brush isn't the nicest one I've ever used but the bristles are dense and worked fine when I was testing it out.
A ordered a shade or two to dark, so if you do buy this keep in mind that they looked lighter in the picture than mine at least was in real life. I recommend applying a bit to your hand then dipping your brush into that till you get use to the flow of the liquid. My first few times using it I squeezed out way to much, so there is a learning curve. But as you ca see from the swatch this has really great coverage.
Way to dark for me, but I did really like the feel and lasting ability of it. The full coverage meant I didn't need to apply any concealer to my face, not even under my eyes. And the swatch I put on my arm one day survived most of my shower till I got the the soapy washcloth bit. Towards the end of the summer the color will match me better and I'll be able to do a full day test of it, but from my wearing it around the house I'm very surprised by it. I'll be keeping my eye on this brand for sure, I see good things in their future.
