Faces Canada Go Chic Lipstick Poppy Red Review

Hi Ladies!

I was recently on the hunt for a “BEAUTIFUL” red lipstick that I can apply as strongly or as sheer as desired. I went through numerous makeup counters and searched online too. I never buy lipstick online because I’m afraid that the swatch can be dubious, but I took a chance with this “Faces Go Chic Lipstick” in Poppy Red shade and boy; I was not at all disappointed! :happydance:

Phenyl Trimethicone, Octyl Palmitate, Capric/Caprylic Triglyceride, White Soft Paraffin, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Ozokerite Wax, Perfomalene PL Polymer, Candelila Wax, Carnube Wax, BHA, Propyl Parabe, Castor Oil, Mica, Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Octyl Methoxy Cinnamate, Bezophenone – , Vit – E – Acetate, Perfume, Colors.


This lipstick comes in a very sleek black plastic + metal case. The quality is amazing and these lipsticks are generally given favourable reviews, you can read about more shades here on IMBB.



It is a very creamy, satiny yet not shiny, kind of matte finish lipstick. I think it is a perfect blend of a satin-matte and a satin-cream lipstick. It does not at all dry out the lips. In fact, it contains Castor Oil, Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil and Petroleum Jelly (White Soft Paraffin) which are all excellent for retaining moisture on the lips. In fact, I wore this once without any lip balm at all and it still did not feel dry. I was afraid that it will bleed because of the various oils and waxes in it, but it did not bleed at all inspite of being so moisturising.

It also has Vit-E-Acetate which makes the product have some protection from UV rays. For the life of me, I don’t know why they don’t mention that anywhere on the package! I know many people who always gravitate towards products that have some sun protection. It is only because I went through the ingredient lists when I realised this particular benefit of this lipstick because I know for a fact that Vit-E-Acetate has UV protection capabilities.

It applies very easily and evenly. You can build it up to get a dark, rich red color or can wear it sheer to get just a tint of red.

It is not very long wearing, but my days have been very active when I had this on. I ate, drank, sweated etc., etc. I had to touch it up after a meal, but only in the inner part, the edges remained fairly neat and opaque. I did not apply any liner under it or any primer.


It is a deep red with orange undertones, perfect for many Indian skin tones. It is exactly the kind of red I was looking for. I mostly wear it just as it is, without any lip liner or anything else. I also wore it with a gloss to further amp the look for a party or I sometimes pat some light loose powder on it to make it more matte for the hot summery days. I also love patting on some pink eye shadow with my finger over this red to tone the “redness” down according to the occasion. It is a very versatile shade and I’m thoroughly enjoying discovering various ways of utilising this color.

This is how it looks under a flash. It does photograph very orange because of its undertones, but trust me, it doesn’t look so orange in real life.

This is how it looks without the flash. The real shade is truly somewhere between the “with flash” and “without flash” images.

6 – After 3-4 hours of first application (I ate and also drank with a straw during this time).

For 7, 8; I used a different camera to better capture the true red shade and they really do a better job at showing the color as I can see in the mirror, but still, the undertones are holding the “redness” back in images!

Why I Love Faces Canada Go Chic Lipstick – Poppy Red:

  • The creamy formula is amazing.
  • The staying power is decent, not excellent but decent enough.
  • The color and the color pay-off are wonderful.
  • Fairly moisturising.
  • It has no significant smell or taste.
  • So easy to apply and blend.
  • Its ingredient list was a joy to go though; it has some excellent oils and waxes and acetates.
  • The packaging is so sleek for the price!
  • The price! Even without any discount; Rs. 199 is not at all bad for this.

What I Do Not Like about Faces Canada Go Chic Lipstick – Poppy Red:

  • It contains parabens.
  • It comes in a dark case, so the color is not visible unless you open and check or at least remember the name. (Faces Go Chic line does have names pretty true to the color though).

IMBB Rating:

4.7/5.  (If only the shade were visible on the packaging, it would get a 5).

Do I Recommend Faces Canada Go Chic Lipstick – Poppy Red?

YES!! It is one of the best reds I have seen, it works for me perfectly. So, just swatch it out and see if you like it. If not looking for a red, then do try other shades in the “Go Chic” line.  It has a wonderful formulation plus it is budget friendly! I also strongly recommend to buy this online as they are always discounted online, you can swatch out the colors at the stores, remember what you liked and then come back and order online. I’m definitely going to buy more from this range.

I hope this helped.

Happy Makeuping!
