“Who is the FACE atelier woman? It is anyone who wants to look and feel her best, and knows that makeup is one of the many tools that women have to accomplish that goal. It is someone who more often than not, wants to start the day by putting her best face forward. Looking good is the best revenge against the trials and tribulations, large and small, that women face every day.” – About FACE
I’d been itching to get my hands on FACE atelier’s Facade lip colours. Facade boasts a one-of-a-kind, silicone-based, liquid-to-powder formula that provides a buildable matte color that sets with a natural glow. I was able to sample all five (5) shades:
The first thing that threw me off with Facade lip colour is that it looks like a liquid – but is actually dry to the touch and applies like a powder. In fact, it’s pretty darn important to build colour gradually, or you risk having the product flake off.
Above, I swatched the shades with medium intensity; you could easily layer on more to reach true matte lipstick proportions. The product does have a drying time; therefore, you can clean up mistakes or make adjustments before your colour sets. And while it sets to a nice, natural finish. I recommend a top layer with FACE atelier’s impossibly shiny Lip Glaze.
Other products I love:
Lip RX: Indulge your lips with silky-smooth Lip RX, which lightly tints as it moisturizes and protects them from the elements. It provides organic ultra-violet protection, and is chock-full of anti-oxidants and essential oils. Available in three tantalizing sheer shades.
Shimmer: Colour your eye in ways you never dreamed using these ultra-fine, perfectly pigmented loose Shimmers. Our highly pigmented Shimmers won’t flake, are non-creasing and long lasting.
Ultra Foundation: The heart and soul of FACE atelier – an innovative approach to foundation that allows you to be in control. Ultra Foundation is a silicone-based emulsion that floats on top of the skin, doesn’t crease or flake, and lasts all day long. Hydrating yet oil-free, it obscures tiny lines and pores to ensure a smooth finish.
