Our Verdict

The results are truly impressive, no doubt – but we were left feeling a little empty inside when we saw all of our facial flaws.

For

  • Incredible zoom for precise detail
  • Undo options and before-and-after images available
  • Creates impressive results

Against

  • Be prepared to realise all your facial flaws!

Embarrassed about your laughter lines? Feeling blue about those blemishes? Fear not, Facetune is here!

Grab a photo from your Camera Roll and start your makeover; you can remove unwanted freckles, blemished skin or hide bags under the eyes with Smooth; reshape that wonky nose or misshapen jawline with, er, Reshape; and make subtle tweaks of colour using Tone.

The zoom is incredible - it allows you to see the individual pixels, meaning you can get everything looking perfect with precise detail. There are, of course, undo options, and a terrifying before- and-after button you can tap-and- hold.

The results are truly impressive, no doubt - but we were left feeling a little empty inside when we saw all of our facial flaws. You can share results over Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr - if you dare.

You'll find this review, and many more, in Tap! Magazine issue 29.
