FACE atelier Lip Glaze review and swatches

FACE atelier, a favorite line of pro makeup artists, has some extremely impressive lip gloss called Lip Glaze ($26).   It’s extraordinary stuff – super smooth, highly pigmented, and fabulously glossy.   It’s remarkably long-lasting without being sticky.


We were sent three $1 sample jars (which actually have a fair amount of product in them) so I can’t speak about the applicator.  However, the tubes are twice the size of most lip glosses so they are a really great deal.  Here are three gorgeous color selections:

Face Atelier Ice
Face Atelier Ice

Ice is like liquid diamonds for your lips.  It is VERY shimmery, in fact I think a photo of this is next to the definition of ‘shimmery’ in the dictionary.  I adore it…it’s fantastic on its own, and magical when mixed with any shade of lipstick.  FACE atelier has a great tip for this:  place a drop of Ice Lip Glaze directly onto the bullet of your favorite FACE Lipstick. Mix with a small, synthetic brush (Essential Brush #5) to create a dazzling liquid lip color.

Face Atelier Dianthus
Face Atelier Dianthus

Dianthus is a rosy pink with silver shimmer.  SWOON!  Oh my this is gorgeous.  It’s a beautiful shade that makes lips shiny and lush.


Enigma is a milky peach nude with small golden shimmers.  It’s beautiful for a natural look, and it mixes especially well with matte peach lipstick to create a liquid lipstick.

I also love that the Lip Glaze is both fragrance and flavor free.  In addition to Ice, Dianthus, and Enigma there are 14 more shades available.  I am totally lemming Peach, Paradise (a yummy looking coral shade) and Plum.  Which shades look great to you?  Check out the website and order yourself some sample jars to check them out!  – Lisa
