THE FACE SHOP Moisture Touch Lipstick – Review, Lip Swatches, and Looks

It was not too long ago that I fell for THE FACE SHOP, based purely on the fact that the Smile Foot Peeling Mask did absolute wonders for my feet.

But how does their makeup stack up?



“THE FACE SHOP
introduces their new standard in lipstick with the Moisture Touch
line.


Formulated with rich serum containing squalene derived from the olive
plant, lips are provided with


intense hydrationand radiant colour payofffor over 4 hours of wear.
The line boasts 20 shades in a range of both wearable and wild
palettes: nudes, corals, pinks, reds, and purples.



Deeply moisturizing, the formula contains squalene from olive plants,
known to rapidly penetrate the skin and condition the lips with a
boost of hydration. The high density colour compact system ensures


that shades come off richer and smoother with every glossy coat.



Say goodbye to dry, matte lips and give lips a little TLC (and a lot
of attitude) with the new Moisture 
Touch line.”


‘Sunshine Red’ is a candy red that is definitely a cousin to the pink family.  The finish was sheer, and the pigmentation wasn’t great, so I had to apply a few layers – it made for a very messy wear.  Because I had to apply several layers, the glossy finish traveled outside of my lip lines and really highlighted any dry skin that I had.  The formula was just too glossy and wet.  I found the best way to wear this shade was to pat down the glossy topcoat with a tissue, and wear it as a sheer almost tinted balm-like product.

‘Pink Affair’ is a bright magenta pink.  It was slightly sheer, so I applied 2-3 coats.  It was much easier to apply and wear, compared to ‘Sunshine Red’.

I wasn’t nuts over these lipsticks.  They took some work to get the pigmentation that I like, and one of them was very difficult to work with.  They wore for about 2.5 hours (that time included drinking through a bubble tea straw), but were comfortable and not drying.  The Moisture Touch Lipsticks get a 6 out of 10 for me, based on what I look for in a lipstick:  Pigmentation, easy application, comfortable wear, and staying power.  Unfortunately, $17 CAD just seems a bit too pricey for a lipstick that I’m not gaga over.


You can find the Moisture Touch Lipsticks at THE FACE SHOP and online.
