1. Foundations ($34)
One of the things I was most impressed with from myface cosmetics is the different types of foundations they have for different skin tones along with the descriptions that come with. there are three categories: Fair, Medium, and Medium/Dark. The website gives specific details on each skin type and there are three different color selections per category. You can also shop for other cosmetics items based on your skin type. They assure you that all medium foundations will look good on any medium tone skin, so you really can't go wrong! My foundation color was Medium 01. (there is medium 02 and 03 too). I believe I could've gotten Fair 03 as well which has peach, pink and honey tones for a sun kissed glow (and probably better for my skin in winter). As long as you know some basic information about your skin type, you will be able to pick a foundation that works well for you.

Website description: 
For medium skin that borders on being FAIR, typically tans but can sometimes burn and often has sallow undertones... MEDIUM 01 has rosy-pink undertones that counteract any sallowness in the skin, creating a warm, healthy glow while still looking and feeling like you are not wearing any make-up at all.

Picking the right color foundation is one of the hardest things for many of us to do, but the detailed descriptions on myface cosmetic's website makes this very easy for the customer. I also love that you can shop for other cosmetic products like blushes and lipsticks by skintone and they have specific group suggestions as well. For example, for each skintone they have "the natural woman combo" (nudes/neutrals), the "not so innocent combo" (earthy pinks) and the "red hot mama" combo (reds). You can purchase by grouping or you can purchase a product individually. In each category there is a lip pencil, 2 lipsticks, and 2 lip glosses. This REALLY takes the guess work out of finding colors that will really be the best on you, making you look your best. 

There is also a powder, concealer, and blush to match in each category. They may not have a huge color selection like some major brands, but the colors they do have are quite impressive.

Review: I like this foundation. It has a different feel and look than other foundations I have tried. It gives your skin a nice dewey finish, but I saw that by the end of the day, parts of my face, in particular, my chin tended to look a tad oily. I have normal skin, with a tendency to be on the dry side during winter. I would question how this would work on oily skin types. I like that the package controls the amount of product that comes out so you don't end up wasting product. I would say the coverage is light to medium. This covered imperfections and freckles, but still maintained a natural glow. This takes awhile to soak into your skin, much longer than other foundations I've tried. I think a finishing powder is a must. I use Palladio Rice Powder, Physician's Formula Organic Wear or ybf Complexion Perfection powder. 

2. Single Eyeshadows ($20)
Silver Screen and Bellbottom Blues

myface cosmetic's eyeshadows (for all skintones) are called blingtones. How fun is that name? They come in super sleek clear packaging and are bright glittery colors. If you're not careful though, you can end up with glitter on your face. You will be really surprised when you first swipe this with your hand and get a beautiful metallic looking swatch, but it doesn't seem to translate as easily to the eye without careful application.

To create a dramatic look: I applied the blue shade all over the lid,  lined my entire eye with the dark blue shade, including my lower lash line and inner corner of the eye along with black eyeliner. I lined the top lash line with myface liquid liner. Myface foundation used.



I would not recommend these for anyone who likes to stay on the safe side or tends to lean towards neutrals and matte shades. These are very bright shades and they are very glittery. These may be special occasion shadows only for some out there. I also would not recommend these for the makeup newbie. They are not the easiest of shadows to apply. But, if you like to play, if you like to experiment, and if you like to go bold, then give them a try! There are also matching nail polishes! And I LOVE to match in an unexpected way like that! There are of course some more toned down colors like the pink champagne color. I would suggest starting there for my newbies out there.


The end result was very pretty, but it took a lot of work and this can be messy. I first applied a layer dry with my fingers. I then used a flat liner brush to apply this product wet. I basically used small brush strokes as if I was painting it on. I applied black matte shadow in the outer V. I did have some issues blending this with other shadows. I tapped some of the silver on top of the matte black and on top of the blue shade. My eyes are very sensitive, but this made my eyes water where the product was applied in the outer V area.

3. Liquid Eyeliner ($18)
I didn't like that the brush on this liquid liner didn't come to a more definitive point, this makes it harder to apply. This also took a while to dry and I got a lot more product on the brush at first than I had wanted to apply. With that being said, I am far from a liquid eyeliner pro. I don't wear it that often as my eyes like to water uncontrollably with certain makeup products (just ask Justina!) and I normally prefer the felt tip type liquid liners.
The brush tip is flat.

4. Nail Polish ($12)
Bellbottom blues


As mentioned before, Myface has nail polishes that match the color of their eyeshadows. I just applied this, so I will update on how long it lasts later. My first impression is that I love these. These have a highly metallic finish and vibrant color. These are also a good size for the price.


Overall, I think this is a great company for those that are looking for something different. If you're looking for a custom foundation or if you're just looking for some dramatic eyeshadows, I think you will really like these products. But if you are newer to makeup, I think you would find some of these products challenging and frustrating.

Yours in Beauty and bling, 

Jessica
