FYF - Flawless You Forever Makeup - Review

I first came across the Flawless You Forever brand when I saw a review on a blog. The picture was of a gorgeous blusher that was called Floral Blush,  a blusher that is shaped like a flower...

I was sent 3 products to review from the range - Mineral Loose Powder, Powder Blush and Lipgloss - Mint.

I like the outer packaging

The loose mineral powder foundation and powder blush

Impeccable Mineral Loose Powder - $28 for 14gm. I am using the shade Nude.

Readers of the blog will know that personally I am not a huge fan of mineral loose foundation. I just seem to prefer the coverage and quickness of application of a liquid foundation. Powder seems to sit and accentuate the pores in a way that liquid doesn't.

However, I applied this with a Kabuki brush from ' Green People' and I can see the attraction people have of powder foundations. It blended in very easily and evenly. For me the testimony was from people who commented on how well I looked without knowing that I was using this foundation. I don't think I am totally converted just yet to loose powder but if you like mineral foundations then this is a foundation definitely worth considering.

Nude is for light pink toned complexions (I am usually light with yellow tones) but this worked well for me.
There are 2 other shades in the range Medium- For light to medium skin with medium undertones
Sand- For medium skin with yellow undertone.

It is talc free and comes in a sifter jar.

Cheeky Blush $17 for 3gm. Shade - Country Fresh 

This is by far and away my favourite product out of the three that I was sent. It is a gorgeous fresh pinky toned blush that provides a beautifully natural flush to my cheeks. It is a matte blusher so perfect for everyday use. It is so easy to blend and build-able. I would definitely purchase this as I absolutely love it.

Cheeky Blush comes in 5 shades.

These pictures are with flash (excuse the mugshot style photo)

And without flash and on a different day...

Lipgloss - Mint Glow $18 - Shade Minty Star

Click for a closer look!

The packaging is attractive and the black handle is slightly cushioned.

Minty Star is a purple/brown tinged colour

This smells so minty, like those blue Spearmint Sweets or toothpaste. I really love the scent of it. It tingles on application  for a few minutes which I am not a fan of as you know from previous reviews but it also has a wonderfully cooling effect from the mint extract. This gloss is wonderfully pigmented, glides on smoothly and evenly with the applicator and has an almost frosted appearance under the light.

Unfortunately this shade does absolutely nothing for me, it is just too dark and makes me look severe,  but I can see that it would look great on darker skin tones and really does enhance the lips. As it comes in 5 shades I am personally drawn to Minty Bubbles a cute pink shade.

All items are available to purchase from www.flawlessyouforever.com. They offer free delivery worldwide.


**** I have teamed up with FYF to offer one lucky reader 3 fabulous items from the range. For entry details click here  ***  Giveaway closes Midnight 23rd February 2011


  1. Thanks for this blog post, I've been having a bit of a blusher crisis for some time now! lol.

    I'm actually glad for the winter when my skin goes lighter. I'm ethnic with a darker complexion, but in the winter I can actually try to pull off the English Rose look!

    I've been trying to find a rosey blush colour for my cheeks. Sort of rose / peachy / orange. If that makes any sense.

    I heart your beauty blog, by the way! So I've given you an award on mine. Grab it if you want it ;O)


  2. I really like the look of the blush - looks really fresh and not over the top.


Please leave your comments, I love reading them and will reply to all :-)
