Hi lovely ladies!!!
I love orange lipsticks, and I know that isn’t something new to hear. So whenever I’m at a store, I look out only for orange lip products. I guess I have picked up almost all the orange lipsticks available, so whenever I go to a store to check if they have come up with any new ones, the sales assistants keep showing the red lipsticks and claim that they are orange. Grrr… I hate it when they get pushy. This time I don’t know who to blame, the sales assistant or the damn yellow lighting in the store. I picked up this lipstick thinking it is more of an orange lipstick with only a hint of red, but it turned out to be totally the other way around.
I can say I was blinded to get this lipstick (I don’t know if that really makes sense). But I can’t explain the pain to get a red lipstick when you are expecting it to be orange.
So today, I will be reviewing a lipstick from the new launched lipstick range of Faces;that is Faces Ultime Pro Velvet Matte Lipstick in the shade Blinded.
Price: Rs.649 for 4.5g
Ingredients and claims:
My experience with Faces Canada Blinded Ultime Pro Velvet Matte Lipstick :
Faces Ultime Pro Velvet Matte lipstick comes in an outer black cardboard packaging that holds all the details pertaining to the product. The outer box open to reveal the lipstick that comes in a matte black body with the word Faces written across the tube over a silver band. The packaging looks very classy and is similar to the other Faces lipsticks- except for the matte finish of the tube body ( I guess the matte finish body signifies that it is a matte lipstick). There is a colored label at the bottom of the lipstick with the lipstick name, making it easy to locate the shade in your stash. The packaging it sturdy and travel-friendly.
Blinded is a gorgeous bright red lip color with a minute orange undertone. The sales assistant convinced me that it is more of an orange lipstick, and even under the yellow store lights this color did look orange. But only after I came home and tried the color did I realize that it is a red lipstick with only a hint of orange. I was quite disappointed that it wasn’t an orange lipstick but nevertheless the color did look great. I generally shy away from reds, but this one really pops on my complexion. Having said that, I find it quite easy to wear and carry. I wear this without any other makeup on my face and it actually looks great.
Texture of this lipstick is creamy matte. It has a smooth texture that feels quite creamy and glides smoothly on the lips without any pulling or tugging; and settles to a matte finish within some time. It is one of the most comfortable matte lipsticks I have tried. It doesn’t settle down in the fine lines of the lips or dry out the lips and make them look parched. You need to exfoliate your lips well before you apply this color- to make it look more presentable on the lips rather than having it settled in the dry flaky areas of the lips.
Pigmentation of Blinded is simply amazing; one swipe renders rich, opaque color to the lips. The lipstick feels light on the lips- and despite being a matte lip color it doesn’t feel cakey even if you layer on a few extra swipes. It is great as a stain for a softer day look and instantly glams you up when worn to its full intensity.
The best thing about this lipstick is its staying power- it stays on the lips for almost the whole day with minimum fading. After meals, the color does fade from the middle of the lip, which can be retouched with a fresh coat of lipstick. Pursing the lips together doesn’t help in spreading the color, as the color settles to matte finish and doesn’t budge from its position. Best part is that this longwear lipstick doesn’t stain the lips at all.
It has a faint vanilla smell to it, which isn’t overpowering and disappears within a few seconds after you have it on your lips.

Overall, Faces Ultime Pro Velvet Matte lipstick in the shade is a nice red lip color with a hint of orange. It has an amazing texture and pigmentation.

Only advise from me for all the orange lipstick lovers – do check the color in day light and don’t rush into getting the lipstick as soon as someone claims it to be an orange lip color.
