The Muse is always up for concealer as you know! So when I seen the new FaceFront Cosmetics burst pop in my inbox with their brand new concealer I was kinda excited.
Click it for the babblings about FaceFront Stunt Double Concealer!
The description says it’s a creamy, hydrating, and aqua smooth formula. I dunno what aqua smooth is but they had me at creamy and hydrating. The Muse’s eyes are soooooo dry!
Only four shades are available which could be a deal breaker for some. The shades run from lightest, medium, darker, and a green to conceal redness. I’m perfectly ok with the color selections available but some might find it a bit discouraging since the darkest shade isn’t too dark at all however if you’re a lighter or a medium you should find a good match.
5g jar is $15.50 USD and Free Shipping using promo code STUNTDOUBLE. I think I’m going to order one, count me curious. I love testing out concealers so might as well!
Review to come soonish!
Step right up for a Beauty Battle first here at Musings! This is the first time I’ve paired a posh line of cosmetic with a no name e-tailer brand of cosmetic. Is this kind of competition even fair? Probably not but let’s see who can win this Beauty Battle! It’s NARS vs FaceFront, to the death!
Let the battle begin!
Pairing up NARS Blush with FaceFront Cosmetics isn’t exactly a fair fight if we get right down to it but since discovering FaceFront Cosmetics Cheek UP Blush in I’m Faunally Yours I couldn’t help but think what a amazing dupe it was for NARS Angelika. Hmmmm I hear the call of a Beauty Battle!
It deserves to be mentioned the shades are almost identical down to the slight shimmer each contains. The color is a delightful bubblegum pink that gives cheeks a nice flush. Considering the shade is a great dupe we’ll have to compare size, blending skills, packaging, and price.
Weighing in at 42oz in a loose powder form, I’m Faunally Yours is $16 USD. The blush is pigmented, has a nice shimmery finish, and comes in a decent enough packaging but nothing too fancy. It blends beautifully and leaves behind a cool pink color on cheeks that’s quite flattering, flirty, and very girlish. Taking packaging into consideration I’d say it’s a tad on the cheap side but nothing terrible and I’ve seen far worst. Considering what a cult following NARS has it’s difficult to put a small name e-tailer against such a high street brand but we shall see who knocks out who!
Running up on the wings of I’m Faunally Yours is NARS Angelika. All NARS fans agree the packaging does have a certain chic feels but also annoys us a fair bit as well since it quickly becomes a mess. At $25 USD it’s not cheap and it’s no where near the same size as FaceFront Cheek UP with a size of 0.16oz. That small size could throw this battle as honestly we can all agree the better deal lays elsewhere.
Packaging wise neither wins the game that’s for sure! Color wise they are both a winner plus pigmentation, quality of the blush, and ease of blending they both cover that base. The real punch comes from FaceFront Cosmetics Cheek UP’s price tag. At $16 USD for a nice size it’s obviously the better bargain which brings it in for a win here. Sorry NARS, FaceFront has you here! As much of NARS fan girl I am, I do so admit the bargain lays with FaceFront plus it even has a tad more pop than NARS Angelika.
The Muse awards this Beauty Battle to FaceFront Cheek UP Blush, best bargain price and a killer blush with plenty of pop!
The Muse reviewed FaceFront Cosmetics for you a few months ago. She wasn’t particularly delighted with the shadows she hauled at that time but she was pretty thrilled with the quality of their blushes.
She did decide to brave the shadow front again recently and haul a few more blushes!

As I mentioned I’m quite a fan of the FaceFront Cosmetics Cheek UP Blush. They make a mighty fine mineral blush plus the colors are unique and different compared to other e-tailer blush companies around which has me going back again and again as they release new shades. I can’t begin to say enough good things about these blushes and I highly rec nabbing some. The two I got this time around were Frawn Prawn and I’m Faunally Yours. Frawn Prawn is a nice hot bubblegum pink shade with a tiny hint of a shimmer where as I’m Faunally Yours is sheer true pink. Out of the two I’m Fanually Yours was a fast favorite. At first glance I was super worried this was going to be too sheer but turns out it’s a fantastic dupe for NARS Angelika (right down to the shimmer). It gives my cheeks a delightful pinch of pink that I’m loving for a fresher look. Both shades are nice and pigmented. I’m quite happy with the two. These are $16 USD each for a healthy amount (12g).
I also got one shadow in Kept Coral. This was a much better purchase than the past shadows I tried from FaceFront but I didn’t like it too much since it was matte. However, pigmentation was way better than the shadows I got with my last order and it’s quite a nice Summer shade. It’s a fiery coral color which has faint shimmer but for the most part it applies a tad on the matte side (which accounts for my dislike).
All in all I’m quite pleased with this second order and I’m always open to what FaceFront Cosmetics has in store for us in the future! Likey! Check out those blushes I loves ‘em!

With all the sales I’m posting today I was inspired to Muse about what I wish was on sale!
What do do you wish was on sale or who do you wish was having a sale right now?
I wish Sephora was having a sale right now so I can snag some Summer Collections at 20% off! I’m also kinda sorta wishing that Face Front Cosmetics would do some sort of sale as well since I want a few more of their blushes!
How about you?
