Flawless You Forever, A range of core and mineral makeup, skincare and spa products specially designed to keep you looking the way you should. Gorgeous!

So...with an assurance like this, I was very intrigued to try a few of their products.

Firstly, the powder blush in Country Fresh is in a lovely little compact with a screw top lid, which is perfect for portability.
The powder is deceivingly very pigmented, so you really do not need to overload your brush (my first mistake!) when applying it.
It is a darkened-dusky pink with a satin finish to your skin, with no shimmer or glitter. The name 'Country Fresh' is very telling, as it does give you that ruddy glow as if you have just been out frolicking in the fields. 
I really liked the colour and finish of this blush, but unfortunately I didn't think the staying power of the powder was that great. It looked fab when I first applied it, and was a perfect colour to even contour your cheeks with, but throughout the day, it did go a little patchy and chalky on my skin which was a little disheartening.
FYF 'Cheeky' blushes retail at £11 for 3 grams, which I do think is a little dear for the quality and quantity of the powder.

The mineral lipstick in Natalie promises to plump up the volume for a fuller and smoother pout, and to effortlessly glide on to create a youthful pucker by visibly reducing rough edges or lines. 

I really liked this lipstick...a lot! It was just my colour, a delicious nude with a (MAC) cremesheen-like texture and finish to the lips. The product also smelt very similar to a MAC lipstick, gorgeous vanilla fragrance, which made it a real treat to use.
The lipstick felt really moisturising and lasted a long time on my lips without becoming dry and needing reapplication. The lippies are laced with Shea butter and jojoba and avocado oils, which condition the lips keeping them soft and supple. I can definitely concur with this!
FYF Couture Pout lipsticks retail at £12 which I think is reasonable for the quality, colour intensity and consistency of these lipsticks.

Flawless You Forever offer a wide array of products, including makeup, skincare and a whole men's beauty range. I know I would definitely investigate more of their lipsticks and also their new BathMania range coming soon, which delights us with cupcake soaps and such. :)

Let me know what you think? If you have heard of this brand or been tempted by any of their products?

I ordered the same lipstick on the basis of your review - got it today but it arrived used! :-( But, to FYF's credit, when I sent them an email earlier tonight to complain, they responded in just over half an hour, to apologise and tell me they're sending a replacement. They've even offered me 25% off all future orders which I'm quite impressed with!

So far - flawed but I'm willing to give them another chance!

Milly said...

@happyhappyjoyjoy - oh my goodness, i am so sorry to hear that. that is awful but very pleased to hear they responded promptly and have offered you a replacement and future discount! Hope you enjoy the lipstick when it is replaced. Thanks for letting me know hun x x x
