FYF Review!

Hey dolls,
Recently I was sent over some products from FYF (Flawless you forever) to try out. I thought it would be great to have a look and try of some of their products as I think they are fairly new and more unheard of than other brands so it would be good to let you guys know what I think bout them.

FYF create makeup products aswell as skin products and spa products so if makeup isn't your thing you could check out the other types of products =]

FYF create mineral makeup which, as we know, is better for the skin...hurrah!


First up the Couture Pout Mineral Lipgloss, this one is in 'Alba'
The first thing i notice is the smell, very strong! It smells like Toffee, I liked it but i think i would prefer the smell to be a little more subtle.
It applies nicely and has a doe-foot applicator, the lipgloss looked slightly metallic, its a purple toned colour which is different from what i usually go for and I wasnt too sure about its colour on my skin tone, i may stick to my usual lip colours!


Now the Floral Blush, iv'e used this in a recent tutorial where I was shocked by how pigmented it was! its very pigmented and gives a lovely colour, perfect if you have a similar skin tone to me. Also you can focus on certain areas to get more earthy tones or rosy ones.
The only down side to this blush is that it dosent stay put very long, even when you swatch it, it rubs away very easily like powder. Gorgeous colour and design though.


I also received the gold eyeliner (which I didn't photograph due to my ditzyness) Its a small tube with the usual type of liner brush. I don't use any other liner than black usually so unfortunately I don't think i'll get alot of use out of it but here it is swatched.
The staying power is pretty good and the colour is nice.


I hope this has been somewhat interesting, I love trying out new brands because I am quite a creature of habit with my MAC and drugstore.
I dont think i would buy any of these products again but I might go for different shades or try their skincare range. Also I don't think the prices are too cheap which might be an issue for fellow students! But I think you'll have to try bits and bobs out and see what works for you.

My favourite product which I received would be the blush, I love the colours even though i have to top up!

I have linked the FYF website above so check them out if interested =]

I think that color on your lips doesn't look bad. You could do that color for a going out look. Just IMO.

I wanted to wear Gel eyeliner as it looks so good and lovely. But no company provided me with a good amount of knowledge about professional makeup, but because of this site, I became aware of all I ever wanted to know. Like- Gel eyeliner is the look of a liquid with the control of a gel. The gel doesn't dry as fast as the liquid. There are plenty of colors available in the gel formula. And they made me imagine the possibilities of this kind of makeup. Thanks to them. beauty tips
