Faces Canada Nail Enamel: Ultramarine Blue and Pearly Yellow
Faces is new to the Indian beauty market and the first time I saw this brand around was may be last year mainly in pantaloons and Pune central where all the brand had was accessories like sponges, eye shadow brushes, nail buffers and filers, loofah, travel bottles hair clips, side combs etc, I had no idea that they had make up on offer too until I saw some reviews on imbb. When I came to Chennai I saw a faces counter in skywalk mall in the centre on a corridor next to the escalators, right between no where and not really a place of its own . It was an open counter midway and I would have probably missed it as it was at the turn . but when I saw the poster saying offers etc I really wanted to explore the brand specially the satin and matte lipsticks :toothygrin: I came to know that the barnd was a little over priced considering it was knew and had an unimpressive packaging. They were selling some tiny nail paints for 99 and the regular bottle was 199!
I wouldn’t really spend 199 on a nail paint specially if it were a new averagish brand like faces canada. Though there was beautiful beige pink kind of nail color I liked I went for a blue one because I had seen some gorgeous blue nail art on imbb and I did not have single blue, like really dark and opaque blue, almost a navy blue.and so I picked up ultramarine blue. The other yellow one has a stupid story behind it as fashion and you send me a crappy replacement for another shade had ordered(they do that all the time for each and every order of mine)
Price:99 for 7 ml
This was my first ever makeup purchase from faces csmetics and I really wanted to own a blue to sometimes match it with my dark blue jeans .It looks gorgeous on the toe nails and its glossy and creamy .I have this nail paint for more than six ,months now and still have been able to use it just once. 😐 the color is almost a navy blue and it is really pretty n opaque in two coats . it goes very very streaky in one coat with streaks of white of the nail peeping in between . but two coats suffice.they make the hands and feet look brighter being a dark color. It chips in say after three days say almost like any other good nail color with a dark creamy finish . three days of decent wear is good for me as I have many others to use. You can even wear it for upto a week by just clipping off the nails a tiny bit.its a very beautiful blue and great for nail art (I wish I was good at that) the price though is not really apt in would say but 7 ml is not bad either .the brush is horrible and not flat and makes nail painting a pain.
rating 4 on 5
This was sent by *********… and you I would like to call it because I had ordered a pretty baby pink and they sent this stupid yellow to me . They always do that to all my orders like sending two of the same colours or replacing any stupid color and never a better color for something that’s out of stock.Why can’t they mention sold out on the site in the first place or may be they get the stock from the seller after people like us order, everytime I order from fashion and you I am prepared for a stupid replacement and it ahd happened to me thrice. I don’t have that sort of time to get in touch with them and ask for a refund of 99 rupees honestly otherwise I would have really given it to them :reallyangry:
coming back to the nail paint, this yellow is a glittery (chunky glitter ) in a yellow base . I don’t know why someone would like this color and why from all colors fashion and you sent such a bad replacement. The brush is pathetic small harsh bristles and frayed and not at all flat. It’s a horrendous colored nailpaint .it lasts for a week is high shine and dries in average time but I am not so happy with color.it reminds me of haldi or when my nails are stained with haldi when I cook. I would have like it if it were whitely white pearly with glitter.
Rating 2 on 5 (look at the stupid brush)
Last word:Faces nailpaints are over priced with tiny bottles, the quality is good though. The brushes don’t make nail painting and manicure a joy. The brushes are extremely cheap quality. I wish some one would put a though into it. Is its not a “to die for color” I would pick something else for 99 rupees!

The Pastel Yellow by Faces is actually really good. I love most of their pastel colours. I made this with the yellow and brown pastel polishes (Idk, what fancy name they gave to these colours LOL)
oh thnks :))
Neha that is annoying indeed that they sent you a different color from what you ordered, and that the brush is splayed- it’s hard to apply polish when the brush is like that. :-/ But the yellow actually looks good to me and the blue looks nice in the 1st photo. :))
oh ok :)) ida
it makes my hnds look dark :(( so
Colorbar is much better for this price… I like shopping for Faces accessories rather than the cosmetics
ya but some clips etc of theirs r overpriced too na :))
Loved the blue shade neha :love: . I found faces nail paints to be pricey for the size :smug:
same here kaps 🙂
Loved the blue shade..beautiful pics too. 🙂 I have the same in a sasta brand VOV.
Me forever procrastinating buying from Faces..do they have any offers going?
ya fashion n u hs sm offers smtimes:)

Thanks 4 da review,Neha!
I loved the blue shade!But I think the quantity is pretty less for that kinda price.I once got a yellow nail paint from VOV.It was a nice shade of yellow but the staying power was not that great.I’m on the lookout for a good yellow nail paint and a good orange/coral one as well.Any suggestions anyone?
Faces have good Pastel Yellow with slight chrome tones. 🙂
You can check my previous comment to this post… I’ve used it as my base.
I’m on a search for a good orange shade too! Have you tried mixing yellow and red? 😛
