FACE Stockholm haul

Category Reviews

FACE Stockholm is a Swedish makeup brand who sent me some stuff to try. Here’s a look I did using their products:

Eye Fix, $28 – this is a creme eyelid primer that comes in a pot. Spreads nicely across the lids. Keep in mind that it’s a lighter primer – looks almost white against my skin – but it does make all your colors pop. I didn’t get a chance to test its durability yet.

Eye Dust in Vintage, $22 – nice mossy green with medium-sheen. As you know, I love loose shadows because they have the best impact – and yes, it matters even with subdued colors! All loose shadows require a primer to make them stick better.

Volumizing Mascara, $24 - ‘thickens, lengthens and fortifies lashes’, according to the website. It did an excellent job of lengthening mine, but didn’t give much volume in my opinion. Perhaps a couple additional coats would solve that problem!

Galaxy Glitter in Tjugofem, $18 – easily my favorite from the haul! Bright lime color (yum!), super glittery particles catch the light like whoa! How to apply: dab a tinge of lotion using a q-tip; go over the surface with a brush loaded with glitter.

Precision Eyeliner, $36 – if you have trouble applying eyeliner, this one’s for you. Its felt tip is really easy to manipulate so you can create a precise, fine line. Doesn’t run or smudge and has excellent staying power (you’ll need an oil-based solution to remove). I do wish it was a tad darker (I like my liner dramatic!) but I managed to achieve this by simply going over a few times.

Creme Highlighter in Mystic, $25 – Silvery white creme for illuminating cheekbones, decollete, shoulders. I applied this with a finger over my brow bone and it gave me a brow-lift type effect. The website claims it can be used as eyeshadow base, too!

FACE Stockholm has a nice range of colors and their product was a pleasure to review. Hope you enjoyed! :)

    The glitter would have to be my favorite too! It reminds me of a MAC glitter liner I bought a couple years ago.

    Is there a price for the ‘Eye Fix’?

  • Doe Deere says:

    Oops, sorry about that. All fixed. :)

  • Kristina says:

    oooo pretty. i wish i wasn’t saving my money now so i could buy some and buy some of your products too!

  • Aether says:

    Looks great. I like the green on the lid. I have to say what I noticed most was how amazing your eyebrows look! I just love nicely shaped brows.

    I love eyebrows in general. If eyes are the window to our soul, eyebrows are the doorway to our emotions.

  • kim says:

    whew! the products might be a bit nicer if the price was! $36 for some eyeliner? No thanks!

  • Kristi says:

    That looks amazing! I love the green! :)

  • Sara says:

    I have to agree, I envy your perfect eyebrows! n_n;
    Those colors are an unlikely couple, but they look so great together! I especially like the mossy green. I wear a cat’s eye everyday, and I like it good and dramatic too. Light eyeliner is no good!

  • Gaiya says:

    I think I would’ve liked a photo of your whole face ;) The eye makeup looks nice, but I think seeing the whole face would’ve given a better idea of how the makeup looks in harmony with other colors on the cheeks, lips etc. They are a little too pricey though. I agree so much with the eyebrows are a doorway to emotions comment. I draw and I’ve wondered how great artists portray emotions.. and it took a long time before I figured out it was the eyebrows. I love the color or your iris. >_< so pretty.

  • Melinda says:

    I love that green, but I’m having problems putting glitters on, I use the paint pots from mac, but they dry too fast before I cover my whole eye, any tips for putting these on over base shadows?

  • Simone says:

    I love that green glitter, and the creme highlighter sounds interesting, especially as they specified that you can use it to highlight cheekbones. I really have trouble making my cheekbones stand out, despite trying all the usual make-up techniques…maybe it’s just not meant to be for me :(

    What filler did you use for your brows? So jealous.

  • liz says:

    gorgeous. I love the winged eyeliner, and of course, the glitter!

  • Stephanie says:

    The products look promising :) They are expensive ($36 for eyeliner? ridiculous!) but the $18 for the bright green glitter seems like it might be well-spent.

  • Lisa Golden says:

    keep inspiring us!

  • Lyrilith says:

    I use a brow definer pencil by N.Y.C. The color is called auburn, I think – it works well for my brows!

    ♣ Melinda
    When using MAC Paint Pots, pile it on! That way you get a little more time before it dries up. :)

  • Nathalie says:

    How fun and shocking to check out your website and see a Swedish brand evaluated! I’m from Sweden and I’ve always felt that FACE have great stuff but way to expensive for me, a poor student. Good though that your were honest in your article.

  • Hendrix says:

    Oooh, I do like that silvery-green. It looks like it would go well with dusky pink shadow too, but that glitter sure pops. :]

  • Clara says:

    I’m glad that it’s not avaliable to those outside the US right now or I would be spending the money I don’t have on that glitter, it’s absolutly beautiful!

  • Lolo says:

    Their makeup looks cool but their website needs better examples of the color swatches. MAC’s website could do the same as well! It would definitely encourage more sales if you could see examples of how it really looks.

    OMG so pretty! Too bad I could never afford it!
