Snazaroo World Cup Face Paints

FIFA World Cup 2014 starts exactly one week later, and I'm sure the majority of us will be watching it! Have you planned a party, or are you meeting up at your local pub? Perhaps you are like us watching it at home (some are playing late after all), or you'll be in Brazil enjoying the sun and atmosphere (I envy you!)! Any way, it's going to be an exciting month!

As we live here, we of course support England! Abby has already made an appointment with her daddy to watch the World Cup together, and to make it more exciting, we'll be getting props and snacks (or dinner) ready for the matches. In time for World Cup, we were also sent a great selection of Snazaroo's World Cup Facepaints to use to let the kids feel involved and enjoy the fun!

I only trust Snazaroo's facepaints for my kids as they are non toxic and hypo allergenic, hence safe for the children to use, and they apply easily with fantastic results too! The Snazaroo Face Painting kit comes in 8 colours, which should cover all the colours of each country's flag. If you only needed blue, red and white, then the Snazaroo Union Jack Face Painting Kit will be perfect. It's also more compact and travel friendly.

It's the first time I've heard about Snazaroo Face Painting Sticks, and I was really fascninated by it as it requires no water to use. They would make the ideal face paint to bring along to a football match as you can just apply it right before the match starts.

Knowing the quality of Snazaroo face paints already, I first tried the Snazaroo Face Painting Sticks on Abby. The texture is like oil crayons but slightly dryer. I love the idea but to be honest, it's not as easy to use as the face paint. The colour doesn't come out easy and it takes a bit more effort to get the design out. For some reason the red was easier to use than the blue, with white the hardest to get the colour out. However, I still think that it's a fantastic idea to take it out with you for a last minute, on the spot face painting.

Right after I did Abby's face, I painted Clay's with the original Face Paint. It was so easy to use and the saturated colour comes out strong and effortless.

Both products can be wiped off easily as well with a baby wipe, but of course you should wash their face properly afterwards as well, just to be sure that there is no paint left on their skin.

Don't forget to grab your face paints from the shops for this World Cup! I would recommend Snazaroo for children and adults alike!
