Faces Moisture Rich Lipstick Review

by Natasha A on May 8, 2011 · 74 comments

I picked up these Faces lipsticks on my recent trip to Mumbai. I just “happened” to come across the Pantaloons Faces counter at Phoenix. While I was actually looking out for Colorbar’s green eye pencil “Jade” ( by the way, why are Colorbar SAs never present at their counter be it in Mumbai or Delhi???!!!), the Faces SA introduced me to their “Forest Green” eye pencil and I am so glad I bought it! And along with it, loads of other Faces stuff ! :D I wore “French Rose” almost every other day while in Mumbai :) and here is my take on it:
faces moisture rich lipstick

What it claims: Vitamin E and jojoba oil enriched. Long-stay, extra shine lip colors. Lanolin and perfume free.
Price and Quantity: Rs. 349 for 4.2 gms.

The Good about Faces Moisture Rich Lipstick

● It is indeed one of the creamiest lipsticks I have ever used. Most creamy lipsticks, no matter what the shade, tend to make me look pale or accentuate the fine lines on my lips. It is for this reason that I swear by mattes and mostly stay away from creamy liptsicks. However, this lipstick seems to combine the best of both worlds!
● It does not dry out my lips. Rather, it keeps them moisturised and supple for as long as it is on.
● Staying power is a good 3-4 hours on my lips with a meal. It lasts longer if you do not intend to eat. Even after a meal, it leaves behind a beautiful tint :)
● Non-feathering and fades evenly.
● Comes in a black packaging which is transparent from the bottom thus making it easier to locate the shade if you intend on hoarding on this collection :)
● Interestingly, as you can see, the rose color looks orange on my lips while the orange looks rosy on my lips :P

The Bad about Faces Moisture Rich Lipstick

● Prone to bleeding if applied without a lip liner. I always use a lip liner along with both these shades.
● It may not survive high temperatures and heat as it is soft so I always store it in the fridge to avoid product meltdown and to prevent it from breaking or twisting each time I swipe it on my lips.
● Availability of the Faces brand. Seriously, they need to do something about it !
Verdict: Good selection of shades that are reasonably priced.
Rating: 3.5/5
Would you purchase again? Yes, I am beginning to like and explore this brand on the whole :)

Since I had reviewed Jordana lipliners, I wanted to share a recent addition of an orange glitter lipliner to my collection. I also have a matte peach lipliner from another brand which I shall be reviewing soon :)

Hey Natasha, beautiful shades, was wondering how rose looks orange and vice versa, as I was reading ur post, but then u only mentioned so I was like hmmmmm….

Chambor looks gawjusss ya, I want, won’t apply such a bright one, but will hoarde and admire.

Natasha May 8, 2011 at 7:29 pm

ichambor: its a wearable orange. besides its intensity is buildable. its not showing too intense in this piccy because i clicked the pics at night and took the lisptick out straight from the fridge when i guess it had gotten too frozen coz i hadnt used it in a while….else it is very very wearable :))

:yahoo: You know when I saw these shades at Faces, I figured these must be the oranges you picked up! :D All shades including the Chambor one are gorgeous! Too bad its not showing up in its full form. I guess they named them right..the fiery orange looks orangey and french rose looks rosy on you !

Any suggestions as to which ones shall i pick.? Lakme maybelline or faces or anything els.? I don’t have too many lipsticks and need something moisturising

Natasha May 8, 2011 at 7:32 pm

ratidoo is the expert here :toothygrin: where’s ratidoo gone? :((

Ankita May 8, 2011 at 7:39 pm

If you want something moisturizing, Chambor is the best pick! The price is ard Rs 500-550 but they are really moisturizing- esp the triple core ones , silk touch and truly lasting. Revlon colorburst and superlustrous lipsticks are also really good. I haven’t tried many from Lakme but the ones I have aren’t too drying but not moisturizing either.

Kamini May 8, 2011 at 8:40 pm

Oh thanks.:) i’ll try both chambor and revlon :)

Rati May 8, 2011 at 8:47 pm

hey nice swatches natasha… :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:

i m definitely buying french rose :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: dont know bt it somehow reminds me on MAC EXHIBITIONIST shade… :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

Reply

Natasha May 9, 2011 at 1:16 pm

i think ehibitionist is a bit more glossy though even this one…i sometimes first fill up my lips with the glittery joradana lipliner then apply the lisptick n then some clear gloss…results are then soemwaht similar. but still french rose actaully has no pink undertones while exhibitinist does.
