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

  1. Hi ANuya,

    Glad you did the review. I was wondering and wondering about their makeup from past few months. I have seen their counter here in a mall but i am not sure whether that was a temporary promotional stall or a permanent one.

    Is this blush a powder or a cream blush?

  2. Hey Anuya, nice review… I tried the strawberry face wash… it was a free tube given out with big bazaar shopping… it smells like syrup and was very drying and so i decided not to try this brand again… but if the blush doesn’t fade, its worth a try!

  3. Hi Anuya…
    Nice review. Even one of my friend was raving abt their products…!!! 🙂

    Just wanted to share this with u ppl…i donno wthr it has happend with anybody :silly:

    Today i went to MAC (Bangalore- near Garuda mall)… wanted to get a concealer, and wanted to knw my skin shade.. ( everybody talks here like. i m NC this and NC that 😛 .This color would look gr8 on ppl with NC – NW… :silly: :silly: )

    So i waited for almost 20 minuts 😮 😮 for the MUA to get free coz i needed their help as this was the FIRST time i visited mac :beauty: . there were only 2 MUAsover there.

  4. then one MUA arrived . He asked me wat i was lookin for , wat is my skin type , daily skin routine… etc… :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) I was preety happy… 😀 😀 😀

    Then he tried one Studio sculpt concealer in ( reviewed by Rati). and i asked him that wat is the reason that some concealers look ashy, some yellowish … For everything he replied – WRONG SHADE …!!! :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ (I believed him as he is the Makeup Artist- not me 😕 😕 😕 ) It was NC 42 or 32 ? :sweat: . as far as i knw , m on fairer side. 🙂

    And on top of it he applied Studio fix compact foundation. that one also in same color i guess…
    It looked ok in the store. so i told him i want to wear this for the rest of the day and see.

    After leaving the store i came home… and saw my face.. And…. THAT WAS IT… :pissedoff: :pissedoff: :pissedoff: :pissedoff:

  5. not that my face looked CAKEY 😮 😮 😮 😮 …
    It looked almost 10 shades DARKER than my skin tone… 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯

    If he knew that choosing wrong shade is so bad and all… Y did he do it ???…. ?:-) ?:-) ?:-)

    And m sure it cannot get oxidized as i reached home after 20 mins only…

    Was it lack of ignorance or he was just being lazy to try and match the perfect color.. :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ … after his WRONG SHADE WRONG SHADE thingi :lying: :lying: :lying:

    Luckily i dint buy it at that moment ( thanks to IMBB reviews + talks :-* :-* )

    I DONT THINK I WILL GO TO THAT MAC AGAIN… :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse:

  6. Nice review Anuya. I saw the counter in Delhi mall and checked out the blushes. They looked nice and very decently priced but have been wondering about them. I think I will pick up a blush next time. :-)) Thanks

  7. has anybody tried their liquid foundation… its not bad, decently priced.i got it for 90rs for 25ml… hope it was not only a promotional offer. this i had purchased at indore. could u tell me where i could get them in mumbai?

  8. I have this blush too.. And its awesom i also use it as eyeshadow and it looks so natural..Even the pencils are good

  9. I like all products of FACES…but my 1 suggestion is for GLOSSES specific Astra Shine. Colors r good but texture is not satisfactory when apply the gloss all shedes r looking same….if i m wrong plz forgive me….
    I like most Stekebals n liners n all kit

  10. I too bought their Gloss and eye pencil today and it’s really fantastic, long lasting and very natural ……I am so satisfied with my purchase. Cheers faces
