In the past two months, I have bought a lot of makeup products – many of which are from Faces. I had visited the store to buy just a loose powder, but the SA suggested some other products and as I had to purchase them anyway, I bought it from Faces. I am really, loving their products especially the Ultime Pro range. This product is a lip crème in the shade ‘Red Mary’ from the same range. I got this particular lip crème to top it over my Faces lipstick in shade Passion for a night occasion. However, I wore it alone and it looks gorgeous.
It claims to give colour intensity of a lipstick and lustre of a lip gloss. It is long stay with super light texture.
Price: Rs.649 for 4.6 ml
Shelf life: 30 months
My Experience with Faces Red Mary Ultime Pro Lip Crème:
I purchased this on the suggestion of an SA. I have visited this store so many times that he has started to recognise me and always recommends the right products. I sort of trust his decisions! 😛 Coming to the product, it is called a Lip Crème. It would be totally loved by people who like a little oomph factor on their lips.
The shade is called “Red Mary”. It is not a true red, though! It has a combination of pink in it. So, the shade name could be misleading, especially for people who are fond of online shopping. But the shade is amazing and it would suit people of all complexions. The pigmentation is also great and one swipe is more than enough. I usually pat some of it on my upper and lower lips and then blend it with the applicator. But I would recommend using a lip pencil with it. The lip crème bleeds very easily, and the shade being bright, requires you to be very careful.
It comes in a cylindrical, transparent tube and a matte black cap. The felt applicator is attached to the cap and is pretty convenient to use. The shade name and number are printed on the base of the tube. It comes in a sturdy packaging and can be easily travelled with.
The texture is slightly thin like a lip gloss, but is not sticky. It does not dry up the lips. I had little bit of balm on my lips and I applied the lip crème without scrubbing. There were no flakes for a long time. It hides the pigmentation and fine lines as well. Also, it is long lasting and remains easily up to 5-6 hours.
After a meal, the glossiness disappears. However, it leaves a nice stain. And, how can I forget about its fragrance! It is a sweet, vanilla kind of fragrance which everybody would love, even the ones with a sensitive nose.
Overall, I love this product and would totally recommend it.
Pros of Faces Red Mary Ultime Pro Lip Crème:
• The shade would suit people of all complexion.
• Pigmentation is great. One swipe is enough.
• Long-lasting formula.
• Paraben and lanolin free.
• Sturdy packaging; truly travel-friendly.
• Gives smooth finish, does not settle into the fine lines.
• Sweet, vanilla like fragrance.
• Does not dry up the lips for more than 6 hours.
Cons of Faces Red Mary Ultime Pro Lip Crème:
• Shade name is a bit misleading.
• Lip pencil is recommended underneath.
I don’t think I have been able to list as many pros for any product that I have ever reviewed. I’ll give it 5/5.
Will I Repurchase Faces Red Mary Ultime Pro Lip Crème?
Nope, but that’s because I never purchase the same shade of any lip product from the same brand again.
Will I Recommend Faces Red Mary Ultime Pro Lip Crème?
Yes, you should definitely check this out! Amazing shade, great pigmentation, hydrating and long-lasting – what else do you need!! 😀 😀
