Face Stockholm Picture Perfect Foundation Review + Swatches


FACE Stockholm is the only Swedish cosmetics company to give you makeup and skin care that is true to the Swedish beauty ideal—natural, trend-forward, simple, clean, gorgeous and fun!

"FACE Stockholm offers a spectacular range of colors and uses only the highest quality and most natural ingredients. With more than 200 lip shades, over 150 eye shadows, blushes, foundations, powders, professional makeup tools, and a natural skin care line, we are eco-conscious, using minimal and recycled packaging and never testing on animals "

In my quest for the perfect foundation, I came across Face Stockholm's Picture Perfect Foundation. With 20 shades to choose from, it's a bit mind boggling as to which one will fit you best. This is meant as a camouflage to get rid of all skin imperfections as well as accentuate the contours of your face for a demi-satin finish.





First thing you notice is the round pot the foundation comes in. It's a bit different, you'll either have to use your fingers or maybe a sponge applicator. I preferred to use a brush, and just dip it in the pot. I'm thinking a sponge applicator will be best next time I use this. The formula does have a distinct scent, a heavy baby powder smell I wasn't too fond of, but looking past that the foundation is rather brilliant!


I chose Shade F which is a light to medium beige and will only match my skin type when I'm a bit tanner. When my skin matched the foundation perfectly, this stuff is amazing.





See how it blended beautifully into my hand? And this is without rubbing it in. It's moisturizing and not heavy or light, it seeps into my skin, getting rid of all my blemishes, freckles and trouble spots. I think this stuff is good enough to possibly cover a tattoo. SO I put it to the test on a scar I have on my arm from removing a possibly cancerous tattoo. Now it is raised a bit, so of course the foundation will not push it down and disappear completely. But you can see a noticeable difference in the color.










Wow right? This will get rid of anything on your face within reason, and make you picture perfect just as described. I would just recommend being careful with how much you apply, too much could make you look over done.




Freckles? All gone!




FACE Stockholm's Picture Perfect Foundation is available online for $48. Yes the price might seem a bit steep, but this will last much longer then your typical foundation. I've been using it for a while now and haven't even put a dent in it. I am recommending this one for anyone with blemishes or minor AND major skin imperfections such as discoloration. Heck, I think this could be used on any blemish on your body. It's a great camouflaging tool, and if nothing else would make a great concealer.
