Today, I am going to review one of my favourite lip colours which I really admire and I am absolutely in love with. 😀
I hardly knew about Faces brand’s entire product range, but when I curiously entered a newly-opened Faces boutique in Phoenix Mills, Mumbai, I couldn’t take my eyes off their lipsticks, blushes, actually almost their entire range!! It looked classy, fabulous and expensive, yet was priced affordably.
This particular shade of lipstick caught my attention FIRST and it was love at first sight!!! 😀
I immediately tried it on my lips, loved it, and bought it in less than half a minute, paid for it, put it in my bag and then went ahead to try and poke my nose on the other ranges around :D. I couldn’t even wait a minute till I had this lipstick with me 😀
What the Packaging of the Lipstick Says:
Moisture rich lipstick.
1) Vitam E & Jojoba oil enriched.
2) Long stay extra shine lip colors.
3) Lanoline and perfume free.
My Experience with Faces Moisture Rich Lipstick in shade “Ultra Pink”:
First, let’s talk about packaging. Doesn’t it remind you of Estee Lauder lipstick packaging except that those are gold with a transparent bottom and these are black with a transparent bottom.
I completely admire the packaging, its not only rich looking and beautiful, but also very sturdy. The lid closes with a satisfying click. The transparent bottom not only makes it easy to identify the shade but also makes the lipstick more fun looking and beautiful. The glossy black cover looks ultra classy trust me!!
Isn’t the packaging beautiful!
It’s a true blue-based fuschia pink in it brightest form. This shade really suits me and brightens up my face and defines my lips very well. On days when I feel its too bright for my outfit/ location, I dab it with cool-toned red lipstick, slight dab dab and the blueness in it tones down and it ends up looking like a nice plummy fuschia.
You can see the blue in it, but its absolutely not shimmery or dual toned, as it looks like that in the pictures.
Its the best texture of cream as in its creamy, but not so much so that it would start melting in the case or bleeding on my lips. Its just the right consistency. It has a slight glossy look, but again, its not overtly glossy, just moisturising enough. I am happy about that as I don’t like glossy finish lipsticks. Also, it doesn’t dry my lips at all!
It does have a slight cocoa-vanilla kind of smell, but very faint and negligible and wears off after wearing the lipstick, which I again love about it! I hate lipsticks with fragrance. Its just too annoying.
Now, the best part about the lipstick, it is extremely long lasting!! It’s wear time is about 4 hours, which is good according to me plus when it starts fading, it fades evenly and this is one of those lipsticks that leave behind a beautiful stain *absolutely LOVE*!!! So once it starts fading, I don’t care in the world because I know that it will stain my lips a beautiful pink which remains another two or more hours!! :yahoo: :yahoo:
Stain after immediately rubbing the swatch off. In reality, it leaves a much brighter and vibrant stain on the lips after the lipstick wears long on my lips.
This is how it looks on my lips
This is how it looks when I slightly dab it with cool-toned red to hide its blue tones. Doesn’t it look like a delicious raspberry sorbet colour? :inlove:
Coming to its pros and cons:
Pros of Faces Moisture Rich Lipstick in shade “Ultra Pink”:
- Highly pigmented.
- Gorgeous shade.
- Doesn’t dry my lips.
- Very long staying.
- Fades evenly and leaves a pretty stain.
- Doesn’t settle in fine lines.
- Not too matte, not too glossy.
- Subtle and negligible fragrance.
- Gorgeous packaging with identifiable bottom, easy to locate.
- Affordable pricing, at 350 rupees, its a steal!
- Not only this shade, a lot of other shades in this range are just amazing and I am eyeing many more colours! 😀
Cons of Faces Moisture Rich Lipstick in shade “Ultra Pink”:
- No cons 😀 except that this may not be a colour everyone would like or be comfortable wearing it, but one should definitely check out more shades in this range. Trust me, they have a gorgeous selection.
Its a completely winning formula in terms of pigmentation, moisture, staying power, packaging, etc. This shade would suit fair-to-medium skin tones and for very dusky beauties too in my opinion if you are comfortable wearing it and carry it off well.
Note: I even layer it under other opaque lipsticks because I know when the other lipstick fades, this one will save me with its beautiful stain, I know its mad, but it works for me. This lipstick is my guardian angel when I don’t want my lips to show bare 😛 😀
Would I Buy Faces Moisture Rich Lipstick in shade “Ultra Pink” Again?
Well, if it gets over then yes!!!! Nevertheless, I will buy other colours from this range for sure.
Would I Recommend Faces Moisture Rich Lipstick in shade “Ultra Pink”?
Yes yes, go ahead! 😀
