Review and swatches: FaceFront Re-Write Pink, Third Kiss

What they are: FaceFront Cosmetics’ Rocket Bronzer in Third Kiss and Color Volume Blush in Re-Write Pink, both from the Spring/Summer 2011 Ouro Fino collection.

Third Kiss: I haven’t yet tested this as much as I’d like to (not really a bronzer-in-the-winter kind of gal), but I’d say the company’s description of this as a  “subtle golden tan infused with 24K Peruvian gold nano-particles” is pretty spot-on. The shimmer is finely milled and the shade itself isn’t too orange or muddy, though it is perhaps a tiny bit more yellow than I’d prefer. On the whole, though, it’s nice and neutral, and best for light/med skintones.

L-R: re-write pink (heavy/light), third kiss (heavy/light)

Re-Write Pink: Brace yourselves, because I am absolutely in love with this shade! It’s the perfect balance between warm and cold, between coral and magenta… honestly, just gorgeous. It’s very pigmented, so it can create quite a strong cheek, but it’s not hard to blend Re-Write Pink down to a smooth, natural flush. I can see the fine shimmer in the pot, but once applied, I really don’t notice any  shimmer or glitter.

& slightly different lighting/focus…

The verdict? I like Third Kiss, but I LOVE Re-Write Pink. Both are limited-edition, so please, please, please, check out the blusher before it’s too late! The two are $17.50 and $15.00 respectively, but there’s nine grams of product in there. Compare that to the 0.85g of product in B.E.’s blushers (which for the record are $18USD), and you’ve got —

a really awesome product for a really awesome price. And if you want any more details you’ll have to go figure them out for yourself because I’m refusing to do math today!

More Ouro Fino…

    Totally sharing your love of the pink. Do you think it'd show up on skin as dark as mine (NC50)?

    The blush looks so darn scary in the pot, but once blended out it is really pretty! And 9 g of product-wow!
    I should check these out!
