The Face Shop is a Korean brand with some really interesting one off products. I find their Korean site very hard to navigate though so it’s tricky for me to see all the products they offer in one place. I did spot these Real Diamond (allegedly contains a small amount of diamond powder!) on eBay and decided to buy a few.
I ABSOLUTELY adore sparkly glosses at this time of year!
I bought PK101 which is a light sheer pink with silver sparkles and BR801 which is a nude beige with softer silver sparkles. All of the colours from the range appeared to be sheer to me with just a slight tint.
The applicator is extremely interesting! Have you seen another one in this shape? It’s sponge with a hourglass shape which is super handy for applying glosses. It works really well actually, and fits the lips nicely.
These range is heavily perfumed; it smells like sweets and tutti frutti. I don’t like it, not because it isn’t nice, it’s just because I don’t like strong smelling scent in any type of make up.
Swatches – both shades are very sheer with tons of sparkle. The sparkle is not as striking as in a MAC Dazzleglass, it’s finer;
I have been using these for a few weeks and I like them; they are medium thick, and a little bit sticky but in a good way, so they stay in place.
However; the problem is that they are really sheer, I don’t see much of a tint going on which makes it a gloss with sparkle and not too much else. I also like the applicator but the scent is too strong.
BR101 is warmer than the pink and more flattering on my colouring:
Pink is cool and there’s a very prominent silver sparkle to it.
