Has anyone used Smiffys fx?

Post by HB on Tue Jul 02, 2013 10:02 am

An employer of mine has bought some "Smiffy's make-up FX" for me to paint with and I can't find any user reviews for it; Does anybody any have any experience with this brand?

I've never heard of it either... and I have heard of most. Is it one of those dollar store/Halloween store brands? Where does it say it is made?

Some one gave me a couple of Smiffys fx pots not too long ago, black and orange. The black is okay, it is all gone and I wouldnt buy it over my usual brands. The orange however I have barely used, the pigment isn't great and although I don't know how much it cost it seems quite cheap in its quality!
It's fine for basic use though Smile

I see it on eBay all the time, the price seems kind of high. I just assumed it was a brand marketed in another country.

Thanks to everyone who replied!

I personally didn't like them, and stopped using them after a few tries, preferring to donate a few colours from my personal collection rather then use them.
I found them lacking in pigment, the light blue didn't look at all the same on the skin as it did in the box (it seemed almost grey) and the black was frustratingly light, had to go over the line a few times for it look decently black. (time-consuming and tedious)
The light blue also left a trace on the skin for 24 hours, when I saw that I stopped using it immediately.
They also seemed to leave a residue on the brushes which didn't rinse off with water but needed soap, one of my brushes is actually stained :/
I'm used to working with Grimas and the contrast in quality was huge!
