Face Atelier Facade, Ultra Sheer and Lip Glaze Swatches and Review

by Lisa Heath

I have the pleasure of reviewing 6 FACE atelier products and a few of them have definitely become staples!

From the FACE atelier website:

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

At FACE atelier, you are your beauty icon.  We believe that being beautiful is all about being the best  that you can be.  FACE atelier refuses to present an image of how we think a woman should look.  Instead, we strive to provide you with sophisticated and versatile makeup that helps you look and feel beautiful.  FACE atelier is makeup that simply works.  And works simply.

I will be showing you 2 Facade shades, 2 Ultra Sheer shades, a lip putty and a lip glaze.


Facade makes creams obsolete as its one-of-a-kind, silicone-based, liquid-to-powder formula provides translucent, non-streaking, buildable matte color that sets with a natural glow. Silky soft and extraordinarily light, Facade comes in five shades for face and lips.

I will be buying more and more of FACE atelier Facade products in various shades.  I was absolutely blown away by it!  It is hands down the most comfortable, light weight and gorgeous products I’ve come across in a LONG time.  I cannot say enough about it!

For a cheek color, it blends easily and I was able to sheer it out to the color I wanted.  A little goes a long way with this!

Arabesque and Chameleon

On the left is Arabesque and on the right is Chameleon.

Arabesque is a beautiful raspberry shade and Chameleon is a rose pink.

On the lips:


This is Arabesque, a nice raspberry shade.  I used 2 coats of Arabesque over FACE atelier lip putty.  Just 1 coat gave my lips a nice pinky tone, but 2 coats is actually a great shade for me.


Chameleon is slightly more neutral than Arabesque and a great everyday shade.

Both of these were incredibly comfortable as both a cheek color as well as a lip color.  You can tell right away that these have silicone in them, the feel is unmistakable.  It goes from feeling like an airy gel formula to a soft powdery formula instantly.  I absolutely love it.

Price:  $27.00 for an 8ml tube

Ultra Sheer

Silicone-based Ultra Sheer is magic in a bottle.  Hydrating yet oil-free, add it to Ultra Foundation to subtly alter its hue, or use it over Ultra Foundation to highlight.  Apply it over your moisturizer for a diaphanous finish that floats on your skin as it luminates.  It’s a blush.  It’s a bronzer. 

I have been adding Ultra Sheer to my moisturizer every day for a nice highlight to my skin.  It’s subtle, but your skin gets a natural “dewy” look to it when used.

Champagne and Opal

Ultra Sheer Champagne is on the left, Ultra Sheer Opal is on the right.  You can see my skin has a sheen to it in the 2 spots it’s applied.

With a flash:

Chamagne and Opal lighting

I used flash for this photo to show the subtle color differences.  This is taken without mixing them into moisturizer.

Again, a light weight and easy to use product.  What I really like is that you get the nice glow without it settling into fine lines and making you appear older than you are.  I’ve had that happen several times with products that have a illuminating effect and it’s frustrating!

Price: $40.00 for 1 oz

Lip Glaze

Impossibly shiny and smooth as glass, our non-sticky, moisturizing formula is a cinch to apply with its sanitary, slant-tip applicator. Highly concentrated and pigmented, long-lasting Lip Glaze gives a high-shine effect while hydrating and mositurizing your lips. And as per usual (for FACE atelier), a little goes a long way.

I don’t usually do lip glaze or glosses.  Most are too sticky for my liking.  Not FACE atelier Lip Glaze!  I received Paradise to review and I’ve actually ran out already from wearing it so much (time to buy more!)


Paradise is a sheer medium coral.  It gives enough color to show up, but it doesn’t overpower.  I have been wearing this on my minimal makeup days and I enjoy the shade on me.

Price: $26.00 for a 15ml tube

Lip Putty

Used under lipstick, velvety Lip Putty fills in those pesky fine lines in and around the lips, eliminating colour bleeding, blurring and blotching. 

At the same time, Lip Putty moisturizes and hydrates the lips because of its singular combination of essential oils and vitamins.  And it also provides organic ultra-violet protection.  Naturally.

All 3 lip swatches above had Lip Putty as a base.  It’s a nice base for lips, very soft and hydrating without looking too wet if you want to wear it alone.

Lip Putty

Pictured above is just a sample, the actual Lip Putty comes in a lipstick tube.  I applied with a lip brush and really liked this.  I will be repurchasing this when I run out as well!

Price:  $24.00 for a .14 oz tube

Overall, I am pleased with all of these products.  The standout product for me though was Facade!  As I said before, I plan on purchasing more in both of the shades shown above as well as additional shades FACE atelier carries.  Lip Putty is definitely another item I will be repurchasing.  I liked wearing it both with and without a lip product over it.

FACE atelier does not test on animals.  In adherence to PETA principles, FACE atelier products have not been tested on animals. They do not buy ingredients from vendors who test on animals, nor do their vendors buy from manufacturers who test on animals.  I know that is very important to many of my readers, so I wanted to point that out.

I know for some the price points are on the higher end.  Some, even for me.  But I also know that some products are just worth the splurge.  I would rather have 1 or 2 amazing products instead of having 10-20 “so-so” items.  For me, these products are worth the splurge.  They feel luxurious and are better than most products I already own.

For more information – check out the FACE atelier Website.  There are several more products I have my eye on!

While you are in the diet phase where you are taking your
sublingual h – CG, you will need to be much
disciplined in order to get the results you want. The reason is that HCG
is approved for clinical use. Kevin Trudeau was the person who popularized the
use of HCG for dieting when he wrote and published
a book on the subject.

estimate for your kitchen remodel San Diego project is to clearly specify the details discussed
above and then obtain 3 different bids from legitimate general contractors.

A few indulgent upgrades to build cooking more interesting

sometimes significantly so.

Several recent studies have shown Proscar is effective for hair loss and can help
regrow some hair on some people, but as I said
before, the use of 5AR inhibitors only deals with a part of the problem and are
generally not very effective when used as the only treatment.
These shampoo ingredients strip my hair of its oils, which
is overkill since my hair is already dry. Using natural treatment for hair
loss just makes good sense.
