Brand To Love: The Face Shop


The Face Shop is probably one of the first Korean cosmetic brands that graced the Philippines soil. Before Etude House, Missha, Tony Moly and many other Korean cosmetic brands that are now everywhere in the country, there was already The Face Shop. Bae Yong Joon was the first endorser of the brand I ever saw and it was during the height of Winter Sonata. I used to be a huge fan of both the endorser and the brand. But after quite a few products, the brand fell short of my expectations. I was disappointed and hardly buy their products after that.

In recent years, they have introduced many new products such as the Cushion Oil Control Water Cushion (which I did not like and decided to give to my aunt because it was too pale and cakey on my skin) and many others. The brand has disappointed me time and again and I was about to give up on it until one day, I decided to visit one of their stores again to see if I will like anything. I tried so many different things - from the cushion blusher to the secret lip tint - and found the samples of the melting lip color line. I tried one shade to another and another and another and before I knew it I loved every single one of them. I then decided to buy all the colors because I couldn't help it; the colors are too gorgeous and the texture is very moisturizing. I am obsessed with this line! Finally, I found something from the brand I can say I truly like.

Pros:
  • Highly moisturizing
  • Nice range of colors (there are 8 colors in total but 1 was out of stock when I went shopping)
  • Affordable (they are only 395.00PHP each)
  • Nice light, fruity scent
Cons:
  • A bit sheer so need about 2-3 swipes before you achieve the color that you want
  • Doesn't last very long
  • A bit heavy on the lips. You really feel like you are wearing lipstick.

Thank you The Face Shop for creating this line of lip color. I hope they restock that one shade I am missing soon so I can complete my collection. 

P.S. makeup is a very expensive addiction.

  2. They look so pretty, love the names too! Major con though that they feel heavy on the lips, more in favor of lips products that you "forget" you wear! Xx

  26. Yes, it kinda sucks that it feels heavy on the lips. The colors are great though and very moisturizing so I guess that kinda balances the con. Also very cheap!
