Face Atelier Lip Glaze Swatch & Review

I'm finally getting around to reviewing my IMATS purchases even though they have already been added to my kit and I have been sampling them on my clients.

When I walked in and saw the Face Atelier booth my eyes lit up because I had a few of their foundations in my kit and loved them. I walked over to the booth with my fellow beauty bloggers and started chatting with someone at the booth who turned out to be founder Debbie Bondar. She was really nice and when I mentioned I was interested in the lip glazes she showed me some of her favorites which I ended up purchasing. They had a great deal 3 glazes for $30 regularly they are $20 each.

I ended up with 4 glazes but once I got home I realized that they had mixed up 2 of the colors and I didn't get my Peach glaze that I really wanted. I immediately contacted the company via email and explained my situation asking if there was any way I could switch the 2 or return 1 and repurchase another expecting them to say "sorry there is nothing we can do" instead I received a warm friendly email back.
I spoke with a rep who helped straighten out the situation and because of how she dealt with me I can honestly say the customer service at Face Atelier is amazing!

In the end I'm happy to say I got my Peach glaze and am able to show you 5 great shades from Face Atelier.
(L to R: Cameo, Shiraz, Plum, Prim Rose, Peach)


All glazes come with a doe foot applicator which I prefer.


Swatches (L to R: Shiraz, Plum, Prim Rose,Peach, Cameo)


Each glaze comes in a 15ml tube and is described as an impossibly shiny, smooth as glass. Non-sticky, moisturizing formula and that's exactly what it is!

What I Liked:
  • Size of tube is very convenient
  • texture is very smooth
  • non-sticky which is huge for me
  • very shiny
  • doe foot applicator
  • great color pigment and selection
  • amazing customer service
  • quality products
What I disliked:

  • At $20 a pop this could get expensive however they do offer a pro discount for MUA's
Conclusion:

I would say the only thing I disliked about this product was the white caking between my lips after an hour or 2 of use, however this could just be me because it happens with a lot of lip glosses (does anyone know how to prevent this?). I adore their foundations and now I'm in love with their lip glazes too!

Next on my list?
The MELT Makeup remover!

Check out Face Atelier online at faceatelier.com for these lip glazes and other amazing products you wont be disappointed!
