High Pigment Gloss! The Face Shop FACE it Extreme Rouge Gloss in PK101, BR801, PP401 Swatches and Review

I love high intensity, pigmented lip glosses, although they can be quite unforgiving on unhealthy lips and can smudge easily.

Korean Brand, The Face Shop is a brand I am currently testing out and I spotted their Extreme Rouge Glosses on eBay.  These vivid lip glosses are highly pigmented, contain Argan oil and adds volume to the lips.  They should also last around 6 hours!

I bought 3 colours, PK101 – a bright pink, BR801, a nude beige and PP401, a pigmented deep plum:

I think applying pigmented gloss without a mirror makes me nervous!


Here are the lip glosses – they are shorter and chubbier than normal lip glosses.  They’re pretty standard other than that, not particularly gorgeous or ugly:

The applicator is a sponge doe foot type with a nice flat edge for application.  It’s quite a nice one:

You can see from these swatches that these lip glosses are highly pigmented and rich.  The texture is quite thick, and the finish is quite high gloss.  WIthout a doubt you don’t need a lip base or lipstick to enhance the colour, it is very rich on its own.

BR801 is a really nude orange-beige. It’s very close to my natural lip colour.

PK101 is a bright pink but PKK102 is an even brighter hot pink. I got for hot pinks a lot so I decided to go for something a bit softer! PK101 is a candy bright pink.

PP401 is a very deep red-wine shade. It’s not anything I would normally wear but since it’s nearly Christmas…

It’s been a while but here are some lip swatches!

PK101 is a blue based pink. I noticed with all of these that they will settle into creases so when your lips aren’t healthy (like mine aren’t at the moment) it’s not a nice effect!

BR801 is a nice change from the normal nudes as there is orange in there.  Avoid if you hate oranges but I love them!

BR801 is a super vampy wine shade! Boy do you have to be careful applying this!  I would wear this for a refined evening vampy look but I wouldn’t touch it for anything else.  There’s a lot of pigment in this.

You know I accumulate lip products very quickly so I do like these a lot despite the competition they face, HOWEVER because they are so intense I find it hard to apply willy-nilly.  And I tend to apply my lip gloss on the run, ie. running to work, and after having soup for lunch!

But if you are looking for a high pigment lip gloss you will definitely like these.  I bought them from eBay for about £8 each including shipping.

What do you think of super pigmented lip glosses?

    I love the nudey-orange one on you, just the right amount of orange. And £8 incl postage is a pretty decent price to pay for gloss with good coverage like this :)
