Today’s review will be on a newly-launched lip product by Faces Cosmetics. This liquid lipstick range has around 7-8 shades in this range. I picked up this bright orange colour called “Tangy Orange.” Let’s see how this one fared for me.
My Experience with Faces Ultime Pro Liquid Lipstick Matte Tangy Orange:
This liquid lipstick comes in an outer cardboard packaging. The actual product comes in a slightly frosted plastic packaging. The packaging feels extremely light and flimsy to me. For the price, the packaging is extremely boring and basic. The wand is long enough and has a doe-foot applicator.
“Tangy Orange” is a bold and bright orange colour that looks stunning on the lips. My only issue with this product is that it is extremely patchy! It doesn’t apply evenly at all on the lips. And if you go to smooth the unevenness, the lipstick comes off.
The applicator doesn’t pick enough lipstick to coat the entire lips at once, so while you are dipping the wand and trying to apply the coat of lipstick, the previous layer has already dried down and refuses to move. And hence you are stuck with uneven pigmentation on your lips.
The formula is kind of sheer because after one coat (and that’s all you get because this thing dries down in seconds and you can’t really even it out once it dries down), you can still see your natural lip colour peeking through.
Try and apply the second coat, and the previous coat comes off. It is super frustrating to work with such a stubborn lip colour! Maybe it is just this one shade that doesn’t want to behave, but I also heard someone online say that the n*de shade also acts in a similar way.
The staying power of this liquid lipstick is 4-5 hours. It starts to crumble off from the sides of my mouth and fades from the center of my lips as well. It doesn’t give me a hard time while I take off this liquid lipstick luckily.
Pros of Faces Ultime Pro Liquid Lipstick Matte Tangy Orange:
- Bright, bold pop of orange colour.
- It doesn’t feel too dry on the lips.
- Decent staying power.
- Comes off easily with a cleanser.
Cons of Faces Ultime Pro Liquid Lipstick Matte Tangy Orange:
- Flimsy packaging
- Uneven and sheer pigmentation.
- Dries down way too quickly.
- Goes on very patchy.
- Can’t apply second coat without peeling the first one.
- Applicator doesn’t pick up enough product.
Would I Recommend/Repurchase Faces Ultime Pro Liquid Lipstick Matte Tangy Orange?
No! There are many other brands that do hassle-free liquid lipsticks, you can check those out. This liquid lipstick is too expensive for the quality!
