Last January 25th, Skin Potions opened their flagship store at Market Market. They call it the “Dream Store”. True enough, the whole place looked so cute and whimsical.
There, I finally had a closer look at their products, smelled them, touched them, swatched and tried them on. Ms. Jonah, Skin Potions’ CEO, was there and she was so generous to give me goodies. Thank you, Ms. Jonah!
Of course, one of the items I had to pick up was their Glam Pocket. Multifunctional products always catch my attention. I’d been eyeing on them since their launch, so I was really excited to try one on.
Skin Potions Glam Pocket in Fo’ Shizzle
The packaging is reminiscent to that of the Polly Pocket’s. All the necessary information, which includes the product description, ingredients, brand details, is printed on the back and the inner flap of the box.
As for the initial packaging, it is a two-tier pot that comes with a mirror. It’s cute and handy and the lid snaps tightly shut so you won’t worry about ruining the product inside.
I chose the shade Fo’ Shizzle as it looks perfect on my medium skin tone.
The cream tint is a beautiful mid-tone pink that can be used on the eyes, cheeks, and lips. It’s such a beautiful shade; it’s not too red but not too pink. It’s a lovely color to achieve a fresh summery look. It is super pigmented so you’ll only need few swipes over the product.
The cream highlighter is a pretty rose-gold champagne color that has tiny sparkly specks that gives off a glow-from-within look. It isn’t “blinding”, which I don’t mind at all. But if you are a “highlighter freak” simply pack on a bit more of the product or perhaps you might wanna check out the other shades.
Both of them are really smooth and creamy to the touch and they blend like a dream. Only a few swipes of the tint are needed to pick up some product. But with the highlighter, I’d say that the amount of product you pick up depends on how sheer or how blinding you want it to be. It does have a velvety powder finish as they claim. Whether I have makeup on or not, it applies beautifully and does not make the foundation look patchy. It also lasts all day when used on the cheeks, which I like, as I don’t like touching up when I’m outside. 😅
Here’s Fo’ Shizzle on my cheeks
I often use it as it is for my simple daily look. But on days I wear makeup, I use it underneath a powder blush. So in case my powder blush wears off, my face will not look pale or lifeless as the color remains on my cheeks.
I like using it on my cheeks, but not as much on the lips. Though it’s blendable, it tends to settle in the lines and the dry patches of my lips. Also, it isn’t very longlasting. It does leave a subtle stain, but it disappears when I drink water or coffee.
I do like the shade, though. It’s also very pigmented that it covers up the dark parts of my lips.
For its price, I still think it’s worth trying. Since it’s multi-way, it can also be used as an eyeshadow. Perfect for a quick pop of color. It’s really handy, it can be carried around in your pocket or bag or pouch.
