The app basically tricks you into buying it...
This app is actually pretty good. for the most part the graphics are realistic and i love the fact that are so many options to what you want to do. the app itself is free but that’s kind of where they trick you. once you get into the app you’ll start to edit (as you should) and then when you try and save your edits, so you can move onto the next section, it will take you to a screen asking you to sign up for the vip version with everything that you just used. so basically nothing on the app is free and if you want it that bad you’ll have to pay up to 35$ a year just to use it. i know what your thinking: why not just save it and move on. well when you pick the section that you want to work on, the save button will disappear and you won’t have that option unless you pay to be/ have vip. i was pretty upset that i spent so much time trying to figure out the app, and explore the controls only to figure out that my work would be deleted unless i payed to use it. i would recommend it if you’re ok with paying for a simple selfie app, but if you expect to have every control imaginable you won’t be getting it. so don’t waste your time like me.
I use to love this app
I started with the original, later paid for the second one and was quite happy with it even though periodically I had to relearn a feature because of an update or add on. Slowly the add ons became useless for me and the features I paid one time for weretaken away and replaced by an outrageous subscription to add back the useful features that took me some time to perfect along with all these newer items that were sub par and looked fake anyway. The best features were either taken away and now being charged again at a higher monthly rate or they were moved, modified or made less effective/ quality/ professional/believable/etc or buried in so many other layers of stuff that I quit using it. I try every now and then to see if they offer an alternative (closer to the facetune2 from a year ago at a reasonable price I would pay for using and be happy with). But its still leaning towards the canned presets and filters that so many others do. They used to-be so unique and semi-expert modifications could be made with precision that the professional apps could do with a lot less complicated processes. But I think they lost a lot of fans. Oh well maybe they will come out with a third one.
Ok Program - Way Too Expensive
Seems like more and more developers are jumping in on the monthly/yearly Feed-Me payment method which benefits them and not the user especially when one adds up all the $2 here and $3 there that get billed each month. Unless one uses the software package heavily, the cost is rarely worth it. For this user, this package is way over-priced especially when one can get the much more powerful Photoshop and Lightroom combo for $10 a month. This reviewer tried this app on an iPad. Where the free edits are nice, many of the VIP edits are basic features that are provided in other apps that cost much less. The unique distortion features are easily overblown and seldom look genuine. Again there are much better programs for this that cost the same. Thanks for the freebies. A few might be nice if needed, since the app can be used as a secondary editor to cheaper full-featured editors. But the nags to upgrade are so annoying that this user simply deleted the app and will stick with the rarely used version 1. Based on comparable software, a $6 one-time upgrade might be worth it. As it is, this is one subscription that is best left alone.
It’s.. not really free
Okay, I downloaded this app for fun. But I also thought it would be fun to just mess around with photos and make photos of myself... well... BETTER... So if you are reading this review before downloading this, the app itself might be free but to get all the good stuff you have to pay. Okay, MOST of the stuff you have to pay for! I would NOT recommend this for someone who is not willing to pay money (like me) and I know, you are probably telling me that “not everything is going to be free” and I know! I’m just saying most of the stuff you have to pay for which leads to some people deleting it (like me). Also, I have tried some of the stuff you have to pay money for for free, and some of the stuff isn’t even good! It looks totally weird and photoshopped and looks unprofessional. Although some of the stuff works wonders and is really good. But I’m not sure if you are getting what you are paying for. Your paying for good quality! Not bad quality! So these are things I am saying. Someone might have totally different thoughts on this game. But I will give this a two star. I deleted this but I am willing to try it again if things gets fixed. ⭐️⭐️
Revision: 40 dollar app robbery
Soooo I did what I said I’d do in my previous review. I just kept it since I have to have it for work & idk what the last update did but when you go to refine the size of something or completely fuzzes it out. You also messed with patching, say when needing to add a patch of hair somewhere else it is completely different from what it use to be it picks up the underneath of the part you are trying to cover and makes it look crazy. When patching it is also extremely frustrating to rotate an image or turn your selection because it changes the grain of the patch instead of what you are selecting. Again for your pompous 40 dollars your development delay is beyond lazy. I canceled this app four days ago after I noticed you were going to charge me 40 dollars for your stupid app. Not ever in my life would I pay that for an APP- once a year or not! You auto default people to that and even when they cancel it so it doesn’t go through you STILL PROCESS IT. Your app doesn’t even let you selectively touch up like your free one. You’re basically a super expensive Pixlr. Reversing the charge.
facetune 1 is way better
I have had facetune ever since james Charles recommended it and i truly loved it. It was only like $5 and it came with everything i needed. Facetune 2 ruins it for me. You have to pay $6 a month or $70 for a one time payment! Now all of a sudden the original facetune isn't letting me update it because of changes that were made or something. I honestly wish facetune 2 was similar to the original facetune. Your not even getting that much out of facetune 2, there are several apps i can do the same thing for free. I would much rather have facetune 2 be like the original facetune, where you pay for the app and everything is included. For now i will be sticking to the original facetune. This one is super overpriced which in my opinion makes it worse. You guys should've have jumped into monthly and yearly payments and continued to have us pay for the app outright. It's going downhill :( . I was super happy at first seeing it was free and thinking i would only have to pay like $5 in the app but wow i was wrong.
Overall, it's fine. There's nothing wrong with the effects if they're used correctly. My biggest problem comes from the subscription fees. I use mobile photoshop constantly with peoples faces and it feels almost insulting to see that the only things available for non-payers to use are the things that are already available in photoshop, while the only things that bring anything remotely new to the table requires paying for a fee that is either: completely insane for a mobile app or one that seems small, but when you eventually forget it exists it piles up and slowly drains your bank account. At least the first Facetune one was a one-and-done $3.99 deal. I'll admit, some tools are very well done and are much easier to use for people with less experience in the whole "face editing field". But those things fall short when you realize you have to sell your soul for these minor conveniences. I'm willing to put in a little extra effort in order to get just as desirable results.
Way too pricy
I’m really disappointed that facetune decided to go with a subscription model. I probably wouldn’t even mind it too much if it wasn’t this expensive! I’m so tempted to buy this app but honestly every time I just have to remind myself it’s not worth it. At the price of $70 I might as well get photoshop on my computer. And what bothers me the most was that at one point the app was available for one time payment of $30 and when I checked back later they had bumped it up to $70 ?? I was so SHOOK that they bumped the price up so much and it discouraged me from buying this app. A subscription model for an app like this in my opinion isn’t worth it. And the only perk old face tune users get is a one month free trial! No discount on the full version, nothing. 🙏🏼 If only I still had the opportunity to purchase this app for $30 (NOT YEARLY) I’d gladly throw my money at facetune but I don’t and I’m not spending $70 so I guess :S I’ll just continue to be upset over it and hopefully some day another app that’s just as good will come out that’s reasonable priced.
I have had this app for a long time
I have loved this but all of a sudden it dose not work . I have asked for help they just give me a lot of junk that only a lawyer could read When it has worked I really loved it but right now I so upset because I can’t get it to work . It’s a google app and they want me to buy an upgrade. When it works it’s a 4 Star now it’s a one star! This app contact me to clarify what was going on. The error was mine not theirs. I still don’t fully understand as I use the app for a very long time. But it appears that I had not paid for that app so I appreciated them contacting me and clarifying what was going on. I would give this app a very strong 5 stars and do appreciate contact with them with clear and easy to understand information about what had been going on
One of my go to apps for retouching
This app is pretty amazing. It makes it incredibly easy to apply professional level effects to your photos. The most used for me are the "Relight" and "Eyes" tools. Unbelievable that such a powerful editing tool is in my pocket! I'm not a fan of SaaS, so I paid the one time price. Pretty expensive, but a bargain when compared to the cost of apps used by pros to accomplish these same types of effects. Just hoping it's continuously updated and I don't have to shell out again because Facetune 3 comes out. TL;DR Amazing app. Great features. Expensive. But still a bargain. Great job to everyone involved in creating this tool. You make me look like a rockstar when I take a picture, correct/enhance it in post and share it. My subjects are always amazed at how good their photo looks.
Facetune is amazing
The amount of control over individual facial features is amazing. I give it 5 stars. It is a must for retouches. I was hesitant because of the price. I bit the bullet and bought the full app. I think it was during a sale. So glad I did. Hope they keep updating this app and don’t create a facetune 3 that I will have to pay for it again. Some features that I would like to see are: adjust hairline, add facial hair and hairstyles/colors, add teeth to a smile like “FaceApp”. Add a background feature can definitely be improved. So could some of the eye color and eye reflection features. Appreciate the new neon lightning feature. Please continue to make this app better. Would like to lower receding hairlines ASAP. Important for my retouching of older men. Thank you developers !
This app is amazing and I can see what people would pay for (ok not really the 70$ for lifetime especially since the first one was only like 4$) but any way my only question is why are basic editing tools such as saturation, highlights, and shadow for vip only??? I mean literally every single editing app free and paid has these things. Even the editor in your photos. This doesn’t really make since to me and it is annoying going back and forth through other apps to have to use these tools. I understand you want to make money but tools like those should just be a given that they are free. One last thing. I wouldn’t say this is app is worth seventy dollars for life time or doing a continuous subscription. A One time purchase of like 7-10$ is probably more of the range this app is in. Great app but yeah.
Nice app! But has lots of bugs.
I use this app almost EVERYDAY, I find it essential to edit my professional photograph. Due to the fact that I use it so often I’ve noticed some bugs and defects, for example, when I want to crop a picture, after I do it, and want to use another feature, the app freezes for a moment, this is very annoying. Something similar happens when I want to use the darkroom feature. Also, when I’m using the “paint” feature, the options for the colors are right side of the picture, so when I want to color the background, it becomes difficult. Also, it crashes sometimes and I loose all my progress. Overall, this app is great, it has so much potential, I definitely recommend it, but it would make me 100% if y’all were to fix these issues, Thank you so much.
Pricey but Worth It!
This app is by far the BEST photo editing app I have ever used. You can literally do ANYTHING to your selfies, to achieve whatever exact desired effect you wish. This app gets all the little nuances completely right! Even my less flattering selfies come out ravishing after I’ve used FaceTune for enhancements. It is so unbelievably versatile and the tools are comprehensive for whatever you might need. They really thought of everything! I wish this had existed years ago! I never post a selfie or portrait to social media without running it through FaceTune FIRST. It’s become a necessity on my iPhone and my go-to app for all things selfie related! The price is steep but worth it for what you get and how often you’ll find yourself using it. Five enthusiastic stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Definitely an advance!
Updated Review: Yes, it's a subscription app. But the developers are constantly improving it and adding WOW! features. Their latest trick are automated backdrops that, in two taps, permit backgrounds to be changed with amazing accuracy. Facetune 2 is the real thing, an app that can still do magic! (And to dispel any doubters, I'm just a more-than-satisfied user with no connection to the publishers.) Like others commenting, I was disappointed to see version 2 of this app go to a subscription model. But a rating should be primarily on merit and only secondarily on cost. And Facetune 2 is a substantive improvement over the original Facetune. Many more features, of which some are quite unique, including some remarkably automated edits!

One of the pictures I have been editing suddenly stopped loading on Facetune2. All my other pictures that I've been editing still load on the app and the thumbnail of the picture (that won't load) does still show the edited version. What can I do???
