I have tried a lot many ranges from Faces, but this was one range that I totally missed out on! I never knew a lot about this range as it is pretty old, but I finally got one to try out the amazing formula that everyone raves about. So let’s jump onto the shade from this range called “Very berry”!
Price: Rs 699/-
Product Description by Faces:
Matte finish for the uber chic! A vivid color burst that lasts more than 8 hours. Enriched with Vitamin E and anti-aging oxidants. Creamy texture gives smooth, water proof high coverage. Available in a wide range of swanky shades.
My Experience with Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte Lipstick #10 Very Berry:
The Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear matte lipstick comes in a basic matte black packaging which is super long and sleek. Due to the sleek structure, it can be easily carried around in a clutch or a hand-bag. The lid closes with a click so no worry of the cap getting separated and the lipstick ruining the bag. And also the twisty thing works perfectly fine.
The shade “very berry” is not the typical berry shade that you would be expecting. Typical berries are a blend of mauve/purple and pink but this one is totally different. Initially it looks like a deep burgundy colour which actually looks vampy hence not all will be comfortable of wearing this. But the perfect way to wear this is blot it and go on. After blotting, it turns into deep plum wine shade which looks super sexy and elegant on the lips.
The finish is velvety which makes it look even better. I think the formula is really awesome at this price. The shade does compliment every skin-tone and the pigmentation is very much buildable according to the need. It certainly adds a dose of glamour to my lips and brightens up my skin-tone almost instantly. A perfect shade for fall! The formula is intensely pigmented and very creamy which glides o the lips like a dream. The texture helps me create a perfect line on my lips which make my lips even more defined and perfectly shaped. The formula turns matte in a few minutes and looks stunning. It does not give any dryness to my lips in-fact my lips feel moisturised.
The staying power is incredible as it stay for 8-9 hours on my lips with full meals, snacks and water sips. As and when I eat, some colour gets ripped off with the food from the centre portion of my lips. And after 5 hours or so, when a lot of colour comes off from the centre portion of the lips, the formula highlights the chapped portions o my lips which is very much noticeable. But I feel that this range is a total hit and I love it!
