I was recently given the opportunity to try out some of Face Stockholm’s new winter line of makeup.  They sent me their matte shadow in Brunogd and their shimmer shadow in Parlemo, as well as their lipstick in Morocco.  The picture below states that they’re both matte shadows, but the bottom of Parlemo clearly states that it is a shimmer!

The packaging for the lipstick was in a super sleek silver bullet-like tube.  I was amazed by how large the eyeshadows were.  The packaging keeps them super safe because the lids have to screw off rather than being flip top.

The matte brown shadow makes a great crease shade as well as a great shade for your eyebrows if you have dark hair and like to fill in your eyebrows.  The shimmer shade went on very sheer and it took several coats to build it up enough to be visible on the lids.  The lipstick was a SUPER dark brown.  Not sure I am brave enough to wear this shade out of the house.  I would have to wear this around the house several times to be brave enough to wear it in public.  It’s a little dark for my comfort level BUT it’s right on trend for this fall…super dark vampy colors are all over the runway!

All in all, I felt that the lipstick was super dark and the eyeshadow look was very natural.  The eyeshadows are very wearable and natural and I will get some good mileage out of them when I am going for a natural look.
