I love experimenting with new brands rather then going back to the old ones. It maintains a level of curiosity and freshness amongst us make-up fanatics and prevents us from getting bored. Don't you think?
I came across this new brand called My Face Cosmetics and it has a whole range of cosmetics especially created for different skin tones. I have some products from their medium to dark range and they are so colourful and vibrant!
I find their system quite convenient as you already have a few shades picked out for your skin tone which you can choose from. Of course you can also get other shades from their range however this would be quite useful to beginners who want to create their make-up kit.
I adore their blushers. I have 'Night fever' which is a gorgeous deep pink, somewhat of a raspberry shade. It is quite bright and you only need a light sweep and that's it!
'Her name is Rio' is a very stunning golden peach shade. It's much more peachier than the infamous orgasm so I would not compare it to that. I love this more as its easily wearable and gives a nice pop of peach on the cheeks.
The texture of these blushes is slightly like Nars but I would have to say a bit more pigmented and better in consistency. I find Nars blushes hard to blend. These on the other hand are a dream.
Plus don't you just love the ipod inspired packaging? Uber cool.
For £9.99 I would want to stock more.
I also have their lip products which again are quite flattering for my Asian skin tone. I have a gorgeous dusky pink, a lilac pink and a red. All very pigmented and they stay put for long too. They retail for £6.49 each.
They do some gorgeous lip glosses too. They are not sticky at all and are pleasant to wear. Some are more pigmented then the rest however. My favourites are the middle two colours 334 and 336 in the picture below. Both are easy to wear and are quite flattering.
I am wearing the one in 334 below with some 'Her name is Rio' blusher.
Excuse the pasty white concealer. It is a bit light for me. I need to get a darker colour soon!
They do really nice lipsticks too. They are quite moisturising and stay comfortably on the lips for a few hours. The red ones called 'Karmic Kiss' and is quite glossy and easy to wear red. It is a warm red and definitely not a blue based once hence easy to pull off.
The nude brown is called 'Sexy Back' if I am correct and is a stunner too. It would be perfect for neutral looks.
I am wearing both of them below. I like the red better on me. Don't we always like ourselves a bit of colour?
Overall, I think My Face Cosmetics is all about colours - colours that will flatter your skin tone hence the name I guess.
So go out of your way and get yourself some colour for this season.
