Ruby Red Face and Body Paints Review

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

JestPaint shares their review of the new line of Ruby Red Face Paints. These are being marketed by Gary Cole, formerly the main distributor of Snazaroo face paints in the US.

This is our first review of Ruby Red Face Paints. In general we like the paint, as far as the rubbing off issue goes the manufacturer has suggested a few tricks to make the paint more resistant to touch (leaving the containers open for a day before using it, applying a thinner layer, sponging vs brushing for wide areas), and has said that they will be working on doing some changes to the formula to further improve it. This would be a product that we would use since not all colors are easy to smear, and the opacity and boldness of most colors are great.
