Faces Cosmetics Blush and Lip Gloss Review
Faces Cosmetics is a Canada based cosmetics company that has recently launched in India in the partnership with Future Group. They have a variety of products including makeup, skin care for both men and women and makeup tools. However in India, only makeup and some tools have been introduced. Since the partnership is with the Future Group, you will definitely find this brand at all Big Bazaar Stores.
I have tried only two of their products – blush and lip gloss. But I did test their foundation and shadows and I was very impressed with the variety of shades as well the price. If I remember correctly the foundation was no more than INR 450 and there were about five to six shades! It’s been a while since I bought these so forgive me if I’m wrong about the prices.
Coming back to the blush and the lip gloss. These do not have names and they are marked by numbers. I have the number 23 in the powder blush and number 10 in the lip gloss.
To describe the No. 23 blush, it is a muted pink colour with the slightest gold undertone. The texture is smooth and it does not wear off during the course of the day. It does not clog pores and is quite easy to blend.
The blush case comes with a tiny brush but it didn’t look like it would be any helpful. Although mine was missing from the case so word of caution – do check for yours whether you will use it or not! The packaging is big enough for my blush brush to pick up the product. However, the lock of the casing mysteriously broke one day and now the cover goes in every direction!
All in all the packaging isn’t very impressive or strong but the product really is. In the picture below the colour looks dark – well, it kind of is. It’s very pigmented and fades just a little through the day. I’ve never had to do touch ups the day I wore this blush. I will definitely buy this blush again but in a different colour.
Price : Around INR 220 for 9 grams.

I really wish I could say the same about the lip gloss but I wasn’t that impressed with this one. I have the number 10 and in the packaging it looks like a medium tone pink with lots of sparkles. The lip gloss comes in a see through packaging which makes it very easy to choose the colour. The applicator is just about tolerable because you need to go back inside a couple of times to really get the product. It could get a little annoying on days when you are running out of time. But the colour payoff is good as the sparkles really enhance the shine!
When you put it on, it goes on a little lighter but has a high shine. I like my glosses to be moisturising but this is not. It made my lips bit dry after it began to wear off. (I think this did not suit my dry lips) The smell is very good just like a bubblegum! It stays in tact for an hour or so, that is if you are not drinking anything or licking your lips.
The print on the tube rubbed off so I cannot give you the weight of this lip gloss but I would estimate it between 8 to 10 ml. I will not buy this again.
Price : Around INR 150
