“Fake Freckles Are Trying To Take Over The Internet And Here’s What You Need To Know”
Kimberly Ricci | 17 Nov 2015
If you’ve ever wanted to capture the beachy, fresh-faced look of freckles but don’t want to risk the sun damage, this trend may be up your internet alley. A new company called Freck Yourself has waged a semi-grassroots campaign to bring semi-permanent freckles to a face near you. The ingredients for this trend isn’t as simple as thighbrow, but fake freckles could become a common thing. Sure, one can always mark up their face with a cosmetic pencil, yet the results aren’t realistic. Plus, the thought of dutifully dabbing away each day is an energy drainer.
This company wants to alleviate the stress of looking like a sun-drenched goddess by offering its product (as featured in outlets like The Telegraph and Teen Vogue) on shelves. A Kickstarter project is in the works to make the freckle kit available. The company’s setup sounds convincing:
The kit comes with 72 self-adhesive stencils and a rollerball of formula that is similar in formulation to sunless tanner. The freckle patterns look natural and last two days. Users who apply Freck Yourself every morning have several layers of faded frecks, which produces incredibly realistic results for four to six weeks.
Here are some of the gathered social-media results for ladies who have tried this product. Do these freckles look realistic? Semi-permanent freckles are much better than the alternatives — sun damage or no freckles at all.
