My weekends involve some “my time” with lipsticks definitely which I am so passionate about 😛 Hence I buy, discard, use some, and so the damage I did this weekend was this gorgeous bubblegum pink lipstick I had always wanted to try from the very affordable Faces Go Chic Lipstick range. I had seen some reviews around on IMBB and had ordered a fig shade from a site, but surprisingly, the lipstick gave me some kind of allergy and hence I was about to give up on this range thinking it’s a cheap one, perhaps using cheap ingredients, but then, I thought it was better to give up on the website instead :p
I rarely ever find Faces counter here and off late, I have been told that there are a lot of Faces counters now in Chennai (for our Chennai readers, Velcahery, Skywalk Mall and the Anna Nagar Health and Glow definitely have a Faces counter). So, I was in desperate need to see some shades form the satin matte range that is too good to believe. I had no plans on buying any, but then, I thought it would be very rude for me to just go and swipe and not buy anything, hence I fell for this colour.
I don’t have many Barbie doll pinks or what you call bubble gum pinks in my collection as I am sure and believe they will wash me out badly. On days, I don’t wear concealer, they can look terrible on me honestly and so I did not want to put in any more than 199 rupees on such a shade, but I am extremely happy with this purchase.
It happened so that I recently bleached my face after a long time :p like you can see and the blemishes were looking so much better and under control and hence I wore this lipstick happily and saw that it did not wash me out and to think that Faces carries such an offbeat “not suited to olive skin tone color” itself surprised me and more so to see that I can actually use this shade on days when I am not so blemished or tanned!
The lipstick I would say is definitely good for the price I say. The color is nice, smooth, moisturising, no shimmer and no frost, but has a cream finish to it. One swipe does not give me enough color and three times is a minimum for me. The lipstick doesn’t feel like it renders some coat of color on the lips, rather it feels very light to me. The texture is such that it will for sure settle in the fine lines and cracks if you have any and the color can look terrible once accumulated in the fine lines.
I do find the lipstick a teeny bit rubbery too, but it is smooth no doubt, but needs a good amount of swiping. I have short listed some great colors from this range and IMBB has some 5 shades reviewed already, so do check them out!
I don’t recommend this shade to medium and dark skin tones or blemished fair skin. Buy it only if you are fair or if you want to try out an affordable pink like this. If you have had any kind of lip allergies or are allergic to the Neutrogena lip moisturiser, do not buy this one (I took a chance but you don’t have to!). Concealing around the lips is an absolute must if you have to wear this shade or it can look terrible and wash many out.
Last Word on Faces Go Chic Lipstick: Candy Floss
This is not my go-to lipstick but a very pretty color for trial purpose. Its not a peachy pink but more of a white pink lipstick. It’s a good lipstick for the price, though I prefer their satin matte and moisture rich ones better!
