This is a review for FaceFront’s new Summer Feelin’ Beachy set. Normally, this set is $35.00, but is being sold for $28.50 for a limited time. The set includes 3 items: Cyber Gel in Painter’s Blue, Artistic Pigment in Bold Gold, and Mineralized Blush in Kept Coral. These colors will be part of the permanent line.
FaceFront’s powders come in plastic jars that have twist-off tops and sifters inside. The packaging is lightweight and the tops fit securely, making these good for putting in your makeup case.
Loose powders are inevitably more messy than pressed powders, but the holes in the sifters are the right size so that you don’t get too much powder going everywhere.
Cyber Gel: 9/10
This Cyber Gel in Painter’s Blue is a beautiful, vibrant, deep-pool blue. It also has silver shimmers.
The formula is not as creamy as the other liners I’ve tried from FaceFront, which is actually a positive: the liner is not smudge-proof or waterproof, but it is more smudge-resistant than the Cyber Gel liners from FaceFront’s previous Lust Quest collection.
The liner applies fairly smoothly and gives off a vibrant color with 2 layers. This blue is a great summer color.
Artistic Pigment: 9.5/10
Bold Gold is a shimmery gold color. The finish isn’t dense–it’s closer to a gold glitter than an opaque pigment.
You can use this pigment wet or dry. You’ll get a more intense finish if you dampen your brush before picking up the pigment.
The shimmers are very, very pretty. You will get a little bit of fallout, but nothing unmanageable.
This is a another beautiful color for Summer.
Mineralized Blush: 9/10
This is a sparkly coral color. It applies evenly and sheerly with 1 layer and an intense peach/coral with several layers.
The shimmers are very subtle if you use only 1 layer and intensify with more layers.
Coral is always a good shade for Summer.
You’ll find this color to be dryer than the other Cyber Gels, which helps you have more control over application. You’ll want to use 2 or more layers to get an opaque finish. You can also use this as an eye shadow base.
Take a pointed liner brush to apply or flatter, small brush if you want to use it as a shadow base.
You can use this pigment both wet and dry. It goes on smoothly, can be layered, and blends easily.
Applying these products won’t be as simple as applying pressed shadows, but that’s the nature of application when you’re working with loose powders.
Application is the same as with other loose powders: just tap the jar while it’s still closed to get powder into the top part of the jar, dip in your brush, swirl the brush around in the cap, and apply. Use a fluffy face brush.
Given what each of these items costs individually, the value of this set is $35. Currently, the set is being sold for $28.50. This is a good price for 3 quality products.
The great thing about this set is that the items go well together. It often seems like companies throw together random colors and call it a “set” without much cohesion between products. FaceFront’s Feelin’ Beachy Set includes items that are worth buying both on their own and as a trio for one cohesive look.
