FYF Cosmetics

I was recently sent a few items from FYF Cosmetics to try out and review for you all. I had heard good things about this makeup brand, and had seen a few reviews myself and thought the quality looked really good, so obviously when i was given the oppertunity to try them, i definitely took up the offer.

Before the reviews, I hadn't ever heard of FYF Cosmetics. FYF stands for "Flawless You Forever", which i think is a cute little name for a makeup company.

The first thing i was given to try out was the nail polish in "Tokyo". I'm not normally a fan of very light, thin colours. I used to wear them all the time through school, and over a french manicure they look very pretty but this polish may have reignited my love. It retails for £6/$9 which i think is a good price. Quick drying, easy application. Thumbs up!

Second thing I tried out, which i was the most excited about, was the mineral lipstick. The colour i recieved was "Natalie", being quite pale, i'd say it's probabaly a little darker than a lipstick i'd normally wear. More like a "my lips but better" shade. Which is nice for a really natural look. I have been wearing this lipstick a lot, especially with a pale lipgloss on top. The formulation is very creamy, I'd say it's comparable to a Mac Creamsheen finish. It's also very pigmented, and it glides on effortlessly & stays very well. I'd love to look into a few more shades. I think the darker colours would be amazing! The lipstick retails for £12/$18, which i do think is a teeny bit steep, but there is no doubt that the quality is there.

There are definitely some other things i'd love to try from the FYF range, the quality is clearly of a very high standard. The packaging is pretty simple, but you do get that nice heavy feeling from the lipstick. One thing i'm not a huge fan of, is the website. Obviously when buying from the company, the first place you're going to go is the website to browse through the items. It's easy to manoeuvre around, but some of the pictures and banners are pixelated and for some reason this really bugged me. For such great quality products, you would hope this would reflect on the website too.
If you are looking into finding new products from a new brand, i would definitely reccommend having a look at FYF products, the lipsticks in particular are really lovely. You can buy it here:

These products were sent to me for review purposes. I was not compensated, nor do i have any affilation with the brand itself. These thoughts are my own & I will always be honest.

  4. @Tugba - I actually have a cold right now, and my lips are chapped, so a swatch was definitely out of the question.

  5. The website is so infuriating! I couldn't find the products and couldn't get to home by clicking the logo or anything. For that reason I won't be purchasing anything. It has really put me off which is annoying because the lipstick really appeals x
