Well, continuing with the Velvet Matte range by Faces, here is the review of the lipstick in shade no. 05 named “Swept Away.” Read on to know more about this shade.
Rs. 649/- for 4.5 gm.
My Experience with Faces Swept Away #05 Ultime Pro Velvet Matte Lipstick:
The lipstick comes in an outer paper carton with a color-coded sticker with name and number mentioned on it, as is #05 and Swept Away mentioned there. The ingredients and other details are also mentioned on the paper carton. The lipstick tube is matte black plastic with a color-coded sticker with shade name and number. Unlike the previous range, these come in normal-sized lipstick packaging. The cap shuts with a click and hence is travel friendly.
The shade is a muted milky beautiful pink with mauve undertones.
I generally wear this on “good skin” days, else it tends to wash my NC 42 skin tone. I would say this shade is not for everybody, you have to try and buy.
Other than the color, the beautiful texture is the aspect that you notice when you swipe it for the first time. There’s absolutely no shine yet it’s creamy and smooth. Now that’s something we all matte lovers look for, while choosing a matte color, for comfortable wear all through the day.
The pigmentation is medium to buildable, but for this shade in particular, I felt the pigmentation is a bit poor and I have to swipe several times to bring out the real shade on the lips. Being a creamy matte textured lipstick, I felt this shade in particular settled on the fine lines, which I believe is not a very pretty sight. All that I do is use my pinky to smoothen it out post application and I am good to go.
This range has incredible staying power with minimal or no fading even after full meals, so if you hate touching up makeup every now and then, make sure you do not miss this range from Faces.
