My Take on Faces Glam On Mono Eye Shadow – Pure Gold:

It’s a brilliant product yet again from Faces Cosmetics.  This eye shadow is the perfect blend of color and shimmer that actually gives a glam on effect to the eyes. :jalwa:


The shade is a true golden color with a shimmer effect that looks great both as an overall lid color and as a brow bone highlighter.  The shade may appear a little dark in the pan with a hint of bronze but it applies as a pure dark golden color itself.

The eye shadow has a fine texture with a perfect glam shimmer content that would not look over the top at all. It is not at all powdery or chalky and there is no fall out. Although you can see the fine golden powder flying around in the pack, but there is no fallout while applying this.

The eyeshadow is highly pigmented and can be used both dry and wet, but as while applying dry only, the color pops out much, so I don’t think you will require to use it in the wet form.

Staying Power:

Awesome! I applied it both with and without my eyeshadow base and in both cases, this eye shadow did not crease or fade away even a bit for a full 8 hours after which I washed it off. I do not have very oily eyelids, but till, 8 hours without any creasing or fading away is fabulous.

Applying an eyeshadow base just increases the intensity of the shade 15-20% more and of course, the staying power too :haanji:

It is waterproof and just by coming in contact with water; it does not run down your eye. You actually require rubbing it off.



The eye shadow comes in a thick black plastic encase with a see-through cap. There is no mirror or applicator provided with it. I find the flip-top cap a little hard to open as it is too small. I actually need to dig my nail in to open the cover and the pan inside is not properly fixed and gives a tic-tac sound, but maybe I just got a bad package. 😐
