FACE Stockholm Glitters for Summer 09


My friend Jessica has a love affair with all things Swedish (she even moved to Sweden to attend design school for 4 years and brought a Swedish cutie back to LA with her!) but this is my first love with a Swedish product.  FACE Stockholm Spring 2009 Look was created by top Swedish artist, Sara Bourke and captures the purity and romance of the season with a little spunk.

“The fresh, flirtatious lip, just-been-kissed flushed cheeks, soft healthy skin and sultry, glowing eye, combine a sweet sophistication with spirited femininity that passionately announces: ‘Spring is in the air!'”

We tested the complete look read on for our review! (All at Face Stockholm):

FACE-Go Natural 1 Mineral Foundation ($30)- Natural coverage and lightweight, great for all skin types.
#1 Magic Wand

EYES– Less dry than the Touche Eclat and covers nicely
#4 Pearl Eye Shadow($19)- Love how this sparkles! Be careful while traveling with it, mine was crushed upon arrival from UPS.
Myrrah Brow Shadow ($19)- Love the multiple shade options, most lines only have 3 colors and I’m neither Blonde, Redhead nor Brunette.  The Myrrah shade is fabulous for Asians, it’s a cool dark brown shade that is not too harsh but blends well with black hairs.
Black Gel Eyeliner ($24) Stays on well all night, but not as opaque as I’d like.
#3 False Lashes – Very dramatic! Too much for me but fun for certain occasions.
Express Lipstick ($22)–  The lipstick is nice but I prefer the gloss.
Alert Pot Gloss ($19)

– I don’t like digging my fingers in the pot glosses but this one gives such a nice shine it’s worth breaking out the lip brush for.
CHEEKS-Splendid Blush ($20)-The Splendid shade looks bright pink but gives a gorgeous flush to the cheeks.
