Swaches ~ Fashion Fair Cosmetics Foundations, Powders and Lipsticks for Brown Skin + Video



I have been loyal to the Fashion Fair Cosmetics Brand for about 30yrs. They were the first cosmetics company for woman of color to hit the major department stores.  There were a few others back then but they weren't nearly as hugh as Fashion Fair.    I've seen this company dwindle down to the bare minimum over the years and has since totally lost their competitive edge with the major mainstream cosmetic companies.   These are all of the Fashion Fair Foundations that I own and I use them lovingly.

Swatches ~ Fashion Fair Metal Illuminator and Ginger Snap Eyeshadow + Video

Fashion Fair Metal Illuminator and Ginger Snap EyeshadowI recently heard a rumor that Fashion Fair Cosmetics was going out of business and this has been one of my Favorite Brands throughout the years.  I don't know how much truth it is to the rumor but I decided that the next time I went to church I would stop by the Macy's and pick up a few things.  My church is about a 30 minute drive from my home and there's a shopping center that has a Macy's which carries the Fashion Fair brand.

Swatches ~ First Lady Lipstick by Fashion Fair

First Lady Lipstick by Fashion Fair
This past weekend while I was at Macy's visiting the Shiseido counter, I also made a stop by the Fashion Fair counter to pick up my beloved True Tone Dark Spot Corrector.  While waiting on the sales rep, I decided to swatch a few lipsticks... now I think they purposely take their time so we can browse other items while waiting.  I already have quite a few FF lipsticks in my stash so I wasn't looking for anything in particular when the First Lady Lipstick by Fashion Fair caught my eye.
I would describe theFirst Lady Lipstick by Fashion Fair as a light pink salmon color that applies very sheer.  It almost looks totally nude on me which was something I liked very much.

Swatches ~ Fashion Fair Chic Cinnamon True Finish Mineral Foundation on Brown Skin


Fashion Fair Chic Cinnamon True Finish Mineral Foundation

The Fashion Fair Chic Cinnamon True Finish Mineral Foundation it's a lightweight mineral foundation that i've come to love, it glides on very smoothly and gives a really great coverage, it's not an extended wear foundation because it's so lightweight and it actually reminds me of a BB cream.  You can wear it alone or apply a powder foundation over it for more coverage. Since I live in California where the weather isn't that dry, I can just wear it as is.

Swatches ~ Fashion Fair Beauty Blush in Bronze

Fashion Fair Bronze Blush

This is one of my favorite Fashion Fair blushes to wear because I can wear it all year around. I think it's one of the most beautiful blushes on brown skin tones and it's a must have in your collection. This particular color is Bronze. It's described as a terracotta/red color that blends into the skin very nicely. The Fashion Fair blushes are very pigmented. I own a few more and they can also be used as eyeshadows.  This color in particular makes a very pretty transition color.

Beauty ~ Fashion Fair Vantex True Tone Moisturizer / Dark Spot Skin Corrector ~ (Part 2)

Vantex True Tone  Moisturizer / Dark Spot Skin Corrector
I've had the pleasure to use these two products for an entire month compliments of Fashion Fair's PR Team and I'm pleased to bring you my honest review.  What I experienced is that my entire complexion has lightened 1 to 2 degrees.  When I started to notice this, I started using the True Tone Dark Spot Corrector on my neck and ears so I could keep those areas consistent in color.

I'm not sure how I feel about having my complexion lighten, it didn't make a difference in my foundation and I was able to continue using the same color I've always used.

Swatches ~ Fashion Fair Posh Punch Lipstick

Fashion Fair Posh Punch Lipstick

I definitely needed more layers of this beautifuly flirty lipstick to bring out the colors.  It's a mix of fuschia and cherry and it goes on very smoothly, it kind of reminds me of the texture of a Mac Lustre lipstick which is one of my favorite textures by Mac.
