FACE Stockholm for JCrew – French Martini

Thumbing through the most recent JCrew catalog im thinking “what a nice sweater, but what an especially stunning lipstick!” You know the look, fresh-face, dewy makeup, messy hair, and a pop of color on the lips. Well I know I am not the only one who is crazy about the makeup. Jcrew has received so many requests about their lip color that they have collaborated with different cosmetic companies in creating limited-edition shades just for them. In the most recent collaboration with FACE Stockholm they created French Martini and Chili Flake (a bold orange-red).


I have been very partial to the soft pink-coral tones that I have seen in the pages of JCrew so I went ahead and picked up French Martini. The reflective silver tube is a bit smaller than your traditional sized lipstick yet carries the same amount of product. In the tube the shade can be quite intimidating, but do not fear. French Martini looks like a bright/neon orange-coral but applies sheer. I would describe the lipstick as lovely coral-pink.


French Martini is a very sheer and intensly creamy lipstick that can be layered for different levels of intensity. In the image above it has been applied in several layers. The lipstick feels a bit glossy and is quite nourishing and non-drying. However it is one of those formulas that will show any sort of dryness you might have on your lips. I would also opt to use a lip liner when wearing this lipstick because it is a bit messy in drawing a clean line. Overall the lipstick is quite beautiful and the shade is a stunner.
