When I was shopping from the Faces cosmetics store that I went last time, there was one particular shade that was strikingly different and popular. I did try it on myself in the store and then decided to buy it. I will be reviewing that lipstick for you all today. Its the Faces Glam On Color Perfect Lipstick in Oxblood.
About the Looks!
The packaging is exactly the same of the one I reviewed a few days back here. A very very pretty packaging!! In short it comes in a transparent case and at an angle it looks like a beautiful crystal! Its sturdy and safe as the lipstick cap opens and close with a click lock, same happens with the bullet inside.

My experience and views about Oxblood!
The lipstick color is inspired by the celebrity actor Deepika Padukone’s dark brown kinda lip color which she has been wearing in many award functions recently. This color is bold, unique and very much suitable for Indian skin tones. The color is a mixture of red and brown, the name oxblood actually is the perfect name, because the color of oxidized blood when it turns a little into brown that’s exactly what this color is! If you look at Deepika’s picture, her lipstick is more brown than red, however, oxblood is a balanced mixture of both. You would be able to see the red undertones in the lip color and that makes it quite a wearable shade! Its great for night parties, Indian weddings and for winter time.
The pigmentation is awesome!! One swipe gives you the perfect red-brown color, which is in-fact build-able to the super dark color. See the pictures below of the swatch. I really love the color and the pigmentation!! Awesome!!
The texture of the lipstick is creamy with a glossy shine. The shine is not too much but just enough to give a glamorous effect. When it is swatched on the hand, the shine is not that visible, however, when applied on lips it gives a very pretty sheen. I don’t like frosty lip colors personally and I am so glad that its not frosty or overly shiny. When I tried this lipstick in the store I absolutely loved it!! See the pictures here from the event where I am wearing the lipstick.
The lipstick lasts for about 4-6 hours without any meals or drinks but with meals it fades quite a bit, credit goes to the creamy formula. It does leave a dark stain behind which is not very easy to get rid of. Even the swatch on my hand did not go away until the next day even with the liquid soap. It will go only by using a good make up remover.
The lipstick transfers a lot and bleeds a little too. Given that it is a dark color with a creamy texture it was due to happen. Using a good lip liner underneath will prevent the color from bleeding. The lipstick does not have any funny smell or taste.
Over all, I love the color of the lipstick for its uniqueness which is such an amazing color, pigmentation and glamorous look. Using a lip liner underneath will make the lasting power a little more better. Its a great color for Indian skin tones and totally wearable. I highly recommend this lipstick to everyone!!
