I’ve some fabulous news for you! Korean skincare and makeup brand, The Face Shop has finally, officially, come to India. I attended the launch event which made the Korean team fly down to New Delhi.
The Face Shop Launch and Bloggers’ Meet
Ms. Diane Lee, the company’s spokesperson said the whole team was very excited that The Face Shop is finally being launched in India (you can buy their products in Sephora, Select Citywalk–I used to load up on their face sheet masks).
A bloggers meet was organised at 38 Barracks, Connaught Place and when I walked in, Shawn Kim, The Face Shop’s ace makeup artist was already weaving his magic, as Ms Diane had already taken up the job of translating through the session.

Makeup artist, Shawn Kim, who also took us through a stunning makeover session with an Indian Model. Watching Shawn Kim makes you respect makeup artists even more, since it’s almost as if he’s painting.
First Impression: The Face Shop Box and Products
I usually don’t really do first impressions but The Face Shop has surprised, and impressed me immensely.
- The amazing golden packaging of these Collagen Filled Lipsticks by The Face Shop separates them from the pack. I saw the pigment and I have to say, these are super rich on pigment–great colours, very different from Indian colour palettes.
- I am not 16, and easily taken up by Mickey Mouse infused compacts but The Face Shop BB Cushion Foundation has more to it than meets the eye. The foundation is superb, and is known for its coverage–when you hold and use the foundation, you’ll know just how Kawaii yet chic it actually is! This is actually a part of The FaceShopXDisney’s collaboration.
- I saw Shawn use The Face Shop Eyebrow Pencil and Liquid Eyeliner on the model at the workshop, and I’m hoping they’re as good as I want them to be. The liner seemed to be water proof and the eyebrow pencil is quite unique.
- Their sheet masks are pretty iconic: I’ve used them at home, and can swear by these. If you’d like to try one, tell me so, in the comments’ section, and I may just do a contest for you guys!
- Lastly, I want to talk about the Face Shop White Seed Range: I am really excited about this one because this is an iconic product from Korea: where women have flawless, clear, luminous skin. That’s the dream! It has white-seed extracts amongst other ingredients that help in evening out your skin and hydrating it.
Where to buy?
They’re launching their product ranges on Amazon India from October 1 and promise some great offers too.
