Know better skin. Tips to get the most out of your Face Shield Flex.

  1. Dispense onto your fingers, rub gently, and watch as the encapsulated iron oxide pigments are released and bloom in your fingertips.
  2. Once formula is no longer white, apply evenly on face. Finish with just one layer for a naturally flawless finish, or build another layer or two for fuller coverage.
  3. PRO TIP: For a perfected, protected look, apply FLEX all over the face for a flawless canvas, and then use Glow to highlight the high points, and Bronze to contour.

How to Use

  1. Activate. Develop. Set. Dispense onto fingertips and rub gently to release and activate encapsulated pigments. As the shade begins to develop from white to your shade, apply to moisturized face and continue to blend for even coverage. Watch as it adjusts to your skin to immediately blur imperfections and even skin tone. The shade is fully developed when product is no longer white. Allow 1-2 minutes for shade to adjust completely. Set with one of our Total Protection brush-on sunscreens or follow with foundation for full-color coverage.
  2. Pro Tip: Layer underneath your foundation for fuller color coverage or use with Face Shield Glow or Face Shield Bronze to enhance your look.
  3. One and Done: Evenly apply one layer to entire face, including under eyes for a look that’s naturally you and powerfully protected.
  4. The Foundation Replacer: Build your coverage to your ideal level of flawless perfection. After applying your first layer, wait 1 minute before applying another layer.

    Very Impressive

    Wow! this product really does live up to the hype! I debated between the fair and medium for days because I'm in the middle, but ended up going for the medium. Im not 100% convinced it was the right color for me, it seems a little dark for me, but not to the point that it's horrible. It looks like I have a tan, but my skin tone is definitely a little lighter than what it comes out with using this product. For reference I'm Hispanic, fairly light/medium skin tone. Make up wise I use Giorgio Armani color 4, but when I saw all the videos of the fair color, I got a little scared and got the medium. Either way, I don't hate it, I think when I run out, I will just get the fair. Now about the product!! It covers incredibly well with just one layer! mixes well, no streaking, no residue, I shake it before I dispense some into my fingers tips, gently rub together, and you can start to see the pigments going to work, then I start applying on my face. It feels nice and lasts! I would recommend it for sure.
