Faces Minerals Compact Ivory Beige 02 Review

Faces Minerals Compact Ivory Beige 02

Hey Beauties, Today, I’m going to review my compact which is from Faces Minerals. After trying out Maybelline Whitestay, Lakme, etc.,  I thought of checking out this one.  With the mineral onset in the market, somehow even I have  started feeling that minerals are good for the skin 😀 😀 It comes in a compact black case which is smart and easy to carry.  The secure lock is also good and does not opens on its own which is something I really like :thumsup: :thumbsup:

Faces Minerals Compact Ivory Beige 02 Review

I have got the shade Ivory Beige 02. They have a wide variety of shades on the website, but I think only few are available in India.



The sponge that comes with the compact is smooth and easy to use. I have been using it since a few months and it doesn’t wear off easily.

Faces Compact

Product Description by Faces Cosmetics:

  • Oil-free powder compact.
  • This dual finish compact can be used to finish liquid foundation or for sheer coverage and to control shine.
  • Can be used by all skin types.


Rs. 499 for 9 gm (I got it for Rs. 359).


Ultra mild fragrance which is close to no fragrance at all.

My Take on Faces Minerals Compact – Ivory Beige 02:

I got the shade Ivory Beige 02. The coverage is medium. I generally use it for daily wear to work after I have applied my face cream. It is smooth but not as smooth as my Maybelline Whitestay Compact.  Somehow, I feel it might make your skin dry, but that’s what I feel. I have a normal skin and it hasn’t yet made it real dry so far. I have been using it since 4-5 months and haven’t faced any issues though. I have worn it from morning to evening without feeling the need to re-apply/touch up.

Swatch and how it looks after blending on my skin:

It does not have any shimmer. That’s a trick played by my camera :tongue: :tongue:

Please excuse my tattoo which is now wearing off. :haanji:


After blending it does impart a nice finish.

Pros of Faces Minerals Compact – Ivory Beige 02:

  • Compact and smart casing.
  • Sponge is smooth and nice.
  • Good staying power.
  • Doesn’t make the skin look dull at the end of the day.
  • No parabens.
  • 100% minerals, so good for skin.
  • Does not cause breakouts.
  • Does not feel heavy at all.

Cons of Faces Minerals Compact – Ivory Beige 02:

  • Missing minor smoothness quotient. If I compare this with Maybelline Whitestay or Lakme ones, they score more as far as smoothness on application is concerned.
  • If I compare, no UV protection and vitamins like in Whitestay from Maybelline.
  • A little chalky.


3.75/5 (for missing-smoothness-quotient and availability).

Will I Buy Faces Minerals Compact – Ivory Beige 02 Again?

Maybe no as I felt Maybelline Whitestay is better and I would want to try a different brand next time.

Merry Christmas and wishing u a terrific yeah ahead!!!

  3. Hmmm I like Faces and Lotus products :inlove: :inlove:
    Even if they don’t live up to all the claims still they wont disappoint you and deliver atleast 60% results and best of all they are not too pricey as well

  4. Nice review tara.. :waytogo: :waytogo:
    but i think i would go for maybelline compact after my Lakme perferct Radiance gets over. 😉 😉

  5. Omg.. I bought this n threw it immediately.. Didn’t work for me at all., I thought the powder was quite coarse..not finely milled at all and the sponge applicator is too thin to pick up the product properly.. All in all a royal fail for me… :spank: :spank: :spank:
    I’m surprised it worked for u! :specs: :specs:

    1. I did find it a little chalky but works fine on blending purplespirit…but yes would prefer maybelline any day than this. :haanji: :haanji:

  7. Faces have a loose mineral powder foundation in a cute container with a puff attached on top – i tried it at the counter ages ago, tha seems to be a better bet – i`d like to give their liquid mineral foundation a try though
