F.O.T.D. + Review: The Face Shop Pastel Collection Lovely Me: EX Tint and Blush

Lovely Monday! :-D It's not for anything else, but my lack of diligence that I've dilly dallied on two of my makeup staples from The Face Shop. They're still part of my not-so recent haul to The Face Shop as featured in the Pastel Romance Spring Trend 2012 Collection.
The Face Shop Lovely Me:Ex Milky Tint in 01 Baby Pink. Product Feature: This milky lotion-type tint, with a moisturizing film made of milk and natural berry extracts, gently protects the lips without dryness or smudging while making them appear attractive as if tinged with flower pigments.
Comes with a doe-foot applicator brush. Directions: Dispense an adequate amount and apply smoothly to the lips, creating natural gradation by applying darker on inner lips, and lighter toward the outside. 
Lovely Me:Ex Petit Angle Blusher in 02 Blooming Love
It's creamy powdery leaving a smooth velvety finish... with Light Pink, Pink, Peach shades. 
Swatch. The Face Shop Lovely Me:Ex Milky Tint in Baby Pink and Petit Angel Blusher in Blooming Love
Sealed with a kiss! :-D I'm not really a fan of pink lippies, it's more of my sister's shade. I either go au naturel or red, extremes. But The Face Shop Milky Tint in Baby Pink is love! I'm a convert! I love everything about it, as in! It's my go-to milk tint for the past couple of weeks. It's so versatile, both for dress down or doll up days! I might sound like an advertorial, but I'm utterly wowed by this. It smells so sweet too, reminds me of strawberry taho in Baguio. ;-D 
Superb lasting power too... still pinkish after a hearty rice meal! ;-D
F.O.T.D. BB Cream: LizK Color Veil/ Eyes: Majolica Majorca Jeweling Eyes Palette PK722; Majolica Majorca Lash  Expander Frame Plus, The Face Shop Face It Collagen Eyeliner/ Blush: TFS Lovely Me:EX Petit Angle Blusher in 02 Blooming love/ Lips:TFS Lovely Me:EX Milky Tint in 01 Baby Pink
Overall, I love the milky tint. I hope they'll have it in reddish shade. It's non-drying, so yes, the milky goodness does work. And the lasting power is remarkable too. It's a bit hard to remove even with the UD Clean and Sober makeup remover. The only drawback is that it has all sorts of parabens listed on the ingredients, oh well. But still, I might repurchase very soon, because mine is halfway done.

As for the blusher, in fairness, this one is way better than my SkinFood Rose Essence Blusher in terms of pigments. It's almost comparable to that of Majolica Majorca's Cheek Blusher's. The final shade when swiped among the gradated shades is the go-to color between peach and pink, and that's usually the shade I can confidently pull off. It goes for as a basic blusher, for blush color variety. But I still need to have a blush brush and a mirror to use it. Will I repurchase? It pains me to say that I haven't finish a blusher yet, as in ever! Generally speaking, I blush naturally and very easily. Haha! Either I'm that blessed (natural blush...yay!), or I'm unhealthy of some sorts. But I do love to collect different blusher shades and designs, so I'll have to check out other lines of The Face Shop.

Have you tried the Lioele Blooming Pop Tint? I was wondering how the Milky Tint compares to it :)

Chic Sassy Mom said...

Hi Clair! Oh no, I haven't. Is it milky based too? :)

TFS is my ultimate korean MU brand that i super love! I haven't tried their Lovely Me:ex yet because I am a loyal user of their "Face it" line...I guess I have to consider trying out their other line :) Their Changpo Shampoo is simply the best too! :) The blusher is really nice, I love peachy pink's not too strong and not too light...It's just right and it suits your complexion very well. Prettiness :)

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
