I only learned about Frankie Rose Cosmetics recently and was invited to try their products. The LA makeup company launched two years ago by pro makeup artists and since then they've garnered a lot of fans. Their price points are also quite affordable, making this a great draw for those looking for superior quality without burning through their budgets.
The most popular item from their lineup, the Matte Perfection Foundation ($32) gives natural-looking coverage without feeling like you're wearing a ton of product. In fact, you can barely feel it. The shade Neutral worked really well on me, which is great for light-medium skin. Folks with dry skin should really moisturize or exfoliate before application. It works so well I don't even need their Our Lil' Secret Concealer ($24), another product with great coverage. Paired with their Prime Addiction Face Primer ($42), you get flawless makeup that'll last all day.
I'm also really impressed with finely-milled silkiness of the Powder Foundation ($30). Lightweight and buildable, it totally rivals the quality of luxury brands. The compact comes with a mirror and sponge underneath, making it super convenient for touch-ups.
Last, but not least, their Lip Gloss ($16) is pretty darn amazing. I loved Pressed Flower, a shiny neutral pink that should flatter most skin types. Non-sticky and moisturizing, it's almost like a lacquer since it's so pigmented. In other words, it's a pleasure to use!
