Hi lovely ladies!!!
After trying out Faces Ultime Pro Velvet Matte Lipstick in the shade “Scene It,” I couldn’t help trying out a few more shades, as I was totally bowled over by their formula, pigmentation and staying power. I picked up this everyday neutral shade, which is totally away from my regular choice of bright orangish lipsticks. Though it is not my kind of bright shade, I am still in love with it. It makes me look different, but in a good way though 😉 So today, I will be reviewing a lipstick from the newly-launched lipstick range of Faces – Faces Ultime Pro Velvet Matte Lipstick in the shade “Proof.”
Rs. 649 for 4.5 gm.
Ingredients and Claims:
My Experience with Faces Ultime Pro Velvet Matte Lipstick – Proof:
Faces Ultime Pro Velvet Matte lipstick comes in an outer black cardboard packaging that holds all the details pertaining to the product. The outer box opens to reveal the lipstick that comes in a matte black body with the word “Faces” written across the tube over a silver band. The packaging looks very classy and is similar to the other Faces lipsticks except for the matte finish of the tube body (I guess the matte finished body signifies that it is a matte lipstick inside). There is a colored label at the bottom of the lipstick with the lipstick name, making it easy to locate the shade in your stash. The packaging it sturdy and travel friendly.
Proof is a gorgeous dusty rose lip color with absolutely no shimmer or sheen. This can work as an every day, every occasion color which would suit all skin tones. It is a subtle shade to wear to office without having the fear of attracting too much attention to the lips. Though it is a neutral shade, it will still add a lot of life and color to your face.
Texture of this lipstick is creamy matte. It has a smooth texture that feels quite creamy and glides smoothly on the lips without any pulling or tugging, and settles to a matte finish within some time. It is one of the most comfortable matte lipsticks that I have tried. It doesn’t settle down in the fine lines of the lips or dry out the lips and make them look parched. You need to exfoliate your lips well before you apply this color, to make it look more presentable on the lips rather than having it settled in the dry flaky areas of the lips.
Pigmentation of Proof is simply amazing – one swipe renders rich, opaque color to the lips. The lipstick feels light on the lips and despite being a matte lip color, it doesn’t feel cakey even if you layer on a few extra swipes. The best thing about this lipstick is its staying power, it stays on the lips for almost 6-7 hours with minimum fading. After meals, the color does fade from the middle of the lips, which can be retouched with a fresh coat of lipstick. Pursing the lips together doesn’t help in spreading the color, as the color settles to a matte finish and doesn’t budge from its position. The best part is that this long-wear lipstick doesn’t stain the lips at all.
It has a faint vanilla smell to it, which isn’t overpowering and disappears within a few seconds after you have it on your lips.
