Want It: FACE Stockholm Makeup

I think that you all already know that I am a huge fan of anything Scandinavian! Makeup and beauty as well, of course.

This is why I can’t believe that I haven’t tried the FACE Stockholm yet.

FACE Stockholm was founded in 198o’s by Gun Nowak. She decided to created a beauty brand as she wanted to have  a big variety of colours and couldn’t find them on the market. Here is what she says: “I didn’t set out to do makeup but I was into crazy makeup and I couldn’t find the colors anywhere! I saw the opportunity. I wanted every color!”

You can read more about the brand  and see their products here.

I was browsing the website for some time and was impressed by the variety of colours they offer, 135 shades of lipsticks in three formulas (cream, matte, veil),  103 shades of nail polish,  different eye shadows,  blushes, face products. Well, they basically have everything you need!

The question is what should I start with? I’d probably get a lipstick, cream blush, nail polish and gel eye liner first.

You may want to see the photos of the products at Rowena’s  and Antonia’s blogs.

If you have tried FACE Stockholm, I’d love to hear your opinion and recommendations.

    Wow, these products look absolutely gorgeous. I have never tried any products from this company but this is going to be the next brand line I check out. The colors are stunning.

  3. YEah, ok, their gel liner is not the best. The cream blushes – yes!:)

    I actually suggest starting with some of their more unique products- the nail polishes, lipsticks and gel liners are good, but not exeptional- while products like the eyeshadow primer Eye Fix and the lip primer Lip Fix are amazing, and products you won’t find equalents for from other makeup brands. I also reccomend the colored correcting loose powders (the pink one gives a wonderful brightening effect), they are very fine milled, and give a natural, never cakey or too “powdery” finish.

    I looove FACE Stokholm, actually the only physical Norwegian FACE boutique is situated in the street right above where I live, and I’ve spent sooo much time there just browsing. I’m going to try their eylash primer next, as I’ve heard it’s great, and FACE Stockholm in my experience excel on primers. 🙂

    As I live in Stockholm, I have tried some of Face Stockholm products. I would say that the prices are a bit too high for the quality you get (in Sweden you take the same price in equivalence, but in in € instead of $). Anyway, their lipglosses have very natural colours compared to the very bright color in tubes- you get a natural color on your lips. I love their bronzer! Mascaras are just for everyday use, nothing exceptuonal. You should definitely try their blushes!

    Thank you Lana,
    The blushes do look nice!

    I actually go to one of Face Stockholms schools and I’m almost a proper make-up artist now. I have to say I absolutely HATE some of the products. Stay clear away from lipsticks, matte eyeshadows and foundations.

    On the other hand I really like Eye Fix, their eye dusts, gel liners and colour correcting loose powders, and the nail polishes are pretty good as well. Lipglosses are okay, but not really worth the price if you ask me, I’d go to MAC instead. If you want to try lipglosses, stay away from the ones in tubes.

    And stay clear away from their black eyeliner pencil, so many people have had allergic reactions to it!
