Face Stockholm lipsticks


French Martini to the left, and Chili Flake to the right. Both colors for J.Crew.

I have never heard of Face by Stockholm before I randomly found their lipsticks in J.Crew months ago. After a lot of debating over it, and since I normally don't wear many red lips I decided to give it a go. I got the two shades they offered there which are Chili Flake which is a true bright red, and French Martini which is a very pretty salmon/pink color.

I like to try new products when possible and the idea of this lipsticks of a brand I never heard before was exhilarating. Silly I know, but I am not kidding and as long as I can return it if I don't like it I am all for it.

I felt a bit shy on trying them on in J.Crew's store, but I can truly say I liked them. Specially French Martini, which complements my skin tone very well for being such a light shade. I find them very creamy, moisturizing and very comfortable to wear. The color payoff it's incredibly pigmented and it rolls in very smoothly on your lips.

On a downside, I'm personally not a fan of the smell. To me it's very distracting and medicine like. Also Chili Flake tends to wander off my lips after a couple hours. So lip liner and being careful with it is a must. Definitely not a low maintenance lip product.

I wish there was a store near me so I could try more colors on this brand. Definitely a nice surprise.
Not cheap though 22$ a piece can make a dent on a shopping budget. I would personally save for this if you are feeling adventurous.


I hope you are having a great day.
