Our favorite souvenir of a summer spent in the sun has to be the smattering of freckles speckled across our noses. If you’re freckle-less, then you know very well those dog days are long gone, and with it, that dose of natural cuteness. Going faux with an eyeliner pencil like Emma Stone is one way to get them, but those drawn-in spots never look like the real deal since they’re too identical in pattern and shape. Of course, there’s also that smudging issue. But with Freck Yourself, a DIY freckle kit that’s currently on Kickstarter, all that’s about to change. Founder Remi Brixton promises a fresh set of tattooed freckles that look so authentic, you’ll never go back to that bare face (or liner pencil) again.
Here’s how it works: There are 72 self-adhesive stencils and a rollerball formula. You apply the sticker near your t-zone, roll the tinted formula (which is similar to self-tanner), remove the stencil and wowza! You unveil a fresh set of natural-looking spots that stay strong for two days. Over time, they’ll fade, similar to tanner.
Though Freck Yourself isn’t the first product in the faux freckle game — blogger Mr. Kate brought them to our attention with these Coachella-inspired, metallic freckle flash tats from BeautyMarks. However, these look so real, your BFF might do a double-take. Besides, Brixton herself says this is a no-makeup makeup brand, which basically means you can pop out of bed with your gorge set of frecks without foundation. Want to score a kit of your own? Pony up at least $28 and you’ll be on the list for a February 2016 delivery. Until then, it’s back to the drawn-in dots or — sigh — going freckle-free.
