A few months ago I was in a Tesco store and spotted a few very basic looking make up bits called ‘All About Face’. There aren’t any big Tesco stores near where I live in London, so I haven’t heard of these before but they looked interesting and I wanted to try them out.
They were for sale at 3 for £5 (I think – might have been 3 for £3, can’t remember – if you know, please comment below). The first thing to catch my attention was the Coral Blusher Powder, it just looked like a really pretty colour, coral with a golden shimmer. I was right, it is pretty – although amazingly smooth, it isn’t very pigmented when swatched but that isn’t a shock for such a cheap product, I did find when applied with a brush it showed up really well. Perhaps it’s similar to a MAC sheertone – purposely more sheer….
Of course, because of the the £3 for £5 (or £3) offer I had to pick up a couple of other bits. So I settled on Heather and Latte – two seemingly standard neutrals, a beige/champagne (latte) and a warm grey with purple undertones (heather). Having now had a play with them I have absolutely fallen for Heather – it’s a silky smooth, gorgeous grey and when swatched the purple tones show more than when they are in the pan. Latte is also nice, but not a stand out for me. The picture has the colours with flash and in natural light.
The packaging isn’t too cheap looking, somewhat similar to Shu Uemura in style (obviously different shape though), but not as solid/sturdy/good quality. Also, since I started using them, the pan of the ‘heather’ eye shadow fell out – so clearly quite poorly made.
