Hi everyone, 😀
I will be reviewing a lip gloss from Faces Canada that I bought along with a lipstick in Wicked that I reviewed earlier. I really liked the Wicked lipstick, texture-wise and also, because it is decently priced. Now, I got the shade mauve, read on to know how it fared.
Price: 249 INR for 7.5 ml
Shelf life: 3 years
My Experience With Faces Canada Go Chic Mauve 10 Lip Gloss:
Packaging: The gloss comes in a transparent tube with a wand whose handle is black in color. The gloss tube comes housed in a carton, which I like. The ingredients and other details are given on the carton. The gloss is easy to carry around in purses for touch ups. The applicator is a conventional doe-foot one.
Shade: Mauve is not actually a pretty mauve that you’d expect it to appear as. It is a dirty mauve, with silver shimmer in it. Thank god it is not much pigmented or else it’d go straight into the garbage. It makes my lips look like I am a chain smoker! 😀 Ghastly in other words. But it can be worn over bright lipsticks I suppose; I haven’t tried that yet though. It does appear to be pretty in the lip swatch; it sure is deceiving, but the hand swatch tells a different story.
Texture and Pigmentation: The texture feels somewhat heavy, but anyhow most glosses have the same issue. It is not sticky though. I’d suggest only a coat of this or else you wouldn’t want to step out of the house. Pigmentation is not that great, but I am grateful it isn’t pigmented! I gave this a shot as I do not have much mauve in my collection, only to end up disappointed.
Lasting Power: It lasts around 2+ hours with light snacking. If you have a heavy meal, then it’s all gone. It fades unevenly, leaving the shimmers behind which looks ghastlier! This shade would be a skip. There are other good shades in this range, easy on the pocket too.
