Frankie Rose Cosmetics Review, Swatches & Makeup Look
Frankie Rose Cosmetics kindly sent me a few goodies from their gorgeous line to try out a few weeks ago and I’m super excited to share my thoughts about these beautiful products with you all!
I first heard of Frankie Rose Cosmetics on Instagram and was instantly attracted to the brand’s sleek packaging and presentation. Their collection includes an array of products like foundations, blushes, eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks, lip glosses, and so much more.
I’ll be reviewing some of my favorites from the brand. I also put together a makeup look, using majority of the products, so stick around to the end of the post for the full details on that.
Starting off with a fan favorite, the Matte Perfection Foundation is a highly raved about product by beauty bloggers that I’ve come to really love as well. This foundation comes in a variety of shades and promises to deliver a smooth and matte finish that is lightweight and long lasting with a build-able medium to full coverage.
I’m always leery of trying new foundations from new brands, but this foundation impressed me beyond words—-it truly lives up to its claims! The first thing that I really like about this foundation line is that it is extremely friendly to Asian skin tones or those with olive skin tones and yellow undertones in general. I have fair skin with warm undertones and it can be quite difficult to find the right foundation shade, but I was very pleasantly surprised to discover the Matte Perfection Foundation shade that I picked was the perfect match for me! I went with the shade “China Silk”, which is the lightest color in the line; I’m usually in between foundation shades, but “China Silk” is just perfect!
This foundation has a pump applicator to easily dispense the liquid formula onto the back of the hand, makeup brush, or sponge for a mess-free application. It applies very smoothly and gives a matte finish with a medium coverage that can easily be built to achieve a fuller coverage. This foundation is incredibly lightweight and doesn’t have that “cakey” effect, conceals imperfections nicely, doesn’t cause any irritations, and is very long wearing! This foundation is simply amazing!
Next, are the two powder blushes in the shades “Peachy Pink” (light pinkish coral) and “Venetian Rose” (mauve with a pretty coral iridescence). Both blushes have beautiful color payoff and a shimmer finish with a satin texture that applies effortlessly and blends readily. These blushes give such a gorgeous sheen to the cheeks for a very pretty, natural glow.
Moving on to the “Bella Rose” lipstick, which is a beautiful medium pink shade that has a matte finish with an ultra creamy and hydrating consistency. This lipstick contains jojoba oil to help seal in moisture and gives a soft, yet rich color payoff that is ultra moisturizing and fairly long lasting. This is the perfect everyday pink lip color!
Please excuse my terrible lighting in the swatch photo below! The color depiction of the products are very inaccurate, particularly the lipstick (it’s not that dark—-refer to my makeup photos below for a more accurate representation)! The swatches are just to give you an idea of what the payoff and texture are like—-these products all have true color payoffs and are so much more beautiful in person!
The last item that I received is the 5 Shade Eyeshadow Palette in “Brown Eyed Girl”. This palette is a new addition to the Frankie Rose Cosmetics line. It contains five beautifully versatile eye colors with various finishes—-there are two mattes, two shimmers, and one metallic shade.
I have absolutely no complaints about this palette! The eye colors, though with different textures, all performed wonderfully! They apply evenly and adhere to the eyes without any issue, and blend like a dream. There are some fall-outs, but that’s definitely not a deal breaker as the pigmentation and color payoff of these eyeshadows are incredibly vibrant and beautiful.
Intimate : matte mauve-taupe
Sultry : matte dark brown
Moody : shimmery green with brown undertones
Steamy : true bronze with shimmers
Sunkiss : metallic copper with intense glitters
For my makeup look, I began by applying concealer, then buffed Frankie Rose Cosmetics’ Matte Perfection Foundation in “China Silk” onto to my skin to even out my skin, which this foundation does marvelously.
Next, I contoured my face with a matte bronzer, then applied the “Venetian Rose” powder blush by Frankie Rose Cosmetics on my cheeks for a flush of color.
On my eyes, I wore all eyeshadows from the “Brown Eyed Girl” 5 Shade Eyeshadow Palette by Frankie Rose Cosmetics—-“Moody” (3rd shade) all over the lid, “Sunkiss” (5th shade) on the crease, “Intimate” (1st shade) on the upper crease, and “Steamy” (4th shade) on the bottom lash line with a little bit of “Sunkiss” on the inner bottom corner.
Lastly, I applied on Frankie Rose Cosmetics’ “Bella Rose” lipstick to complete the look. I love this color so much!
I hope you all enjoyed this makeup look and thank you for reading!
