Once in a while it is okay to pick up random base products and they do surprise us pleasantly, more often than not. Here is one such compact by Faces. Read on to know in details about the pressed powder.
Price – Rs 399/- for 9gm
My Experience with Faces Go Chic Pressed Powder:
The packaging is simple but slightly flimsy in my opinion with the black and silver details. The good thing is the inclusion of the mirror and a very nice quality sponge. There is no separate compartment for the sponge so it might seem a bit untidy in the long run. The compact is sleek so can be easily slipped in the makeup pouch.
The texture of the compact is finely milled and is super smooth on application. The sponge being soft helps in smooth application of the powder. Pigmentation is medium to buildable. I would say it is better than average compact’s coverage. But on applying more than one layer there is this talc feel on the face which is not very comfortable.
The staying power is approximately 4 to 5 hours and improves when it is applied on top of liquid foundation or primer. There is no funny awkward smell to the product which is good as scented face makeup stuff is something I definitely dislike.
I would say it nothing great but can be considered as an option for everyday wear. As the price is low it is not going to pinch the pocket. Also, I picked the shade 5 which is darkest of the lot. Though it is slightly darker than my natural skin tone, it looks okay-ish.
Pros of Faces Go Chic Pressed Powder:
• Smooth texture.
• Good coverage.
• Nice applicator.
• Stays for 4-5 hours.
Cons of Faces Go Chic Pressed Powder:
• Flimsy Packaging.
• Talc feel.
• Only 5 shades.
IMBB Rating: 3.75/5
