I attended the NEW FS Cosmetics launch party a couple of days ago and was quite excited for this launch because this is a local industrial makeup brand I’ve always had in my kit. They have products that flat out just do the job. The powder formulas are exceptional, one time a certain network executive I do makeup for asked me if I was using Chanel while I was applying the FS powder foundation in Mocha on her due to the scent (the powder is lightly scented but not overwhelming). I don’t have my full press package yet (it’s on its way), but I’m fine with the delay because I didn’t want to choose shades and colors from a jpeg file of swatches online. I did take pictures at the event, and one of the first things that won me was this FS Cosmetics blush in Twinkle Tan , another beige pink which compares well to NARS madly but is just slightly more rosy and a touch more obvious in photos and super beautiful in person.

Below is a glimpse of other new products they also have, like the loose powders with built in brushes that detach and re-attach to the lid, textures are comparable to Laura Mercier translucent setting powder.
To be rid of the elephant in the room (since it is there no matter what I type anyway) the FS Cosmetics range was formerly associated with Fanny Serrano for several years but their collaboration contract with him ended in 2011, as most collaboration contracts do. So FS Cosmetics, now known as Features and Shades, has relaunched with the same makeup formulas we like, more sturdy and new-looking packaging, plus existing bestseller shades and some new shades and products also.I managed to personally experience the new line at the event and make a list of what REALLY impressed me there and one of them was the blush I mentioned (that is until another blush caught my eye, haha). Read on to see me wearing it.
