Face Atelier Facade in Livid Review

"Disclosure: This product was given to me for review purposes in exchange for my honest opinion after trying it out. " Complete disclosure here

Hello, lovelies~ How many of you like blushers? Well, I do, even though I rarely buy new ones. This makeup item is the one thing that can make me look 'alive' again when I'm feeling under the weather. All I have to do is put on my glasses and apply them on my cheeks. Today, I want to share my take on Face Atelier's Facade Blush

Clear squeeze tube
The simplicity of the packaging is effective and efficient. It is packaged in a clear squeeze tube with a twist off cap at the end. The tube is made from plastic, so I have no worries if I should ever drop it accidentally on the floor.

The list of ingredients can be seen on the plastic tube quite clearly. This product uses phenoxyethanol as preservatives and is free from parabens. It contains dimethicone and its kind, so those sensitive towards it may want to be careful.

Shade options
There are five shades to choose from this Facade collection. My shade is called 'Livid', which is a bright cherry pink that suits my complexion.

The consistency
When I first squeeze it out of the tube, the product is kinda like a cream consistency. It looks and feels thick, just like a night cream would feel like.

However, once I started to blend it, I feel the cream to be lightweight and not sticky at all. As I continue to blend, the cream slowly turns into a powdery finish. Since I have oily skin, I love this! A lot! I won't have to apply powder on top to set it, yeay~

As seen from the swatch on my hand, it is highly pigmented when it first came out of the tube. It even scared me at first because I thought it was going to be very bright on my cheeks.

However, as I blend it out, the cream is sheered out, but not to a point that it disappeared. It sheers out to a natural flush on my cheeks, which I LOVE. The color can be applied layer by layer to get a more pigmented and bright look on the cheeks. I tend to like mine sheered out to look more natural.

As a lip tint
This is kinda like a lip and cheek stain, but I feel that it is slightly drying for my lips. I wouldn't really use this for my lips unless I applied lip balm before and a gloss after to prevent myself from licking my lips. ^_^

Overall, I like the practicality of this product because it can be used a blush and a lip color as well. However, it can be a little drying if I apply it on my lips. This is my go to blush whenever I'm feeling under the weather since it does refresh my complexion, bringing color back to my face. It is hard to find here in Jakarta, but you can check for its availability.
