As you all might know that when I went to that Faces Cosmetics India event which I posted about here, there was a launch of the new Glam On collection. So, today I am going to review one of the lipsticks from the same collection that I got in the goodie bag. Its the Faces Glam On Color Perfect Lipstick in the shade Bare Again.
About The Looks!
The lipstick comes in a black box which has the brand and collection name written in the front. The other side of the box has the claims and ingredients and another side has the price, quantity, shelf life, etc. The bottom of the box has the name of the shade with the color code sticker. The lipstick case is absolutely gorgeous!! I love the crystal like transparent packaging, Its sturdy and beautiful!! The top of the case has the faces logo on it, the front has the brand and the collection name and the bottom has the shade name with the color code sticker.
The part that holds the bullet is gold and the bottom part inside the transparent case is black. See the pictures to understand it better. The cap opens and closes with a satisfying click. Which means its not going to open in your purse like some of my other lipstick does. That’s very irritating and its even more when the lipstick bullet gets destroyed due to this. Not only this even the lipstick comes out and goes back with a click! Which means that if you did not hear a click sound while twisting the bullet down, it hasn’t gone all the way inside! Its such a great idea to make sure that the product is safe! I am highly impressed! When you look from a certain angle the lipstick case looks like a beautiful crystal!! I can’t rave enough about it!! Its a gorgeous packaging!!

My experience with Bare Again!
The color is a beautiful nude color which I absolutely love! Its a peach with quite a bit of brown undertones and is the perfect nude color for me. Its now my favorite nude lipstick ever!! Like the name says the color is quite bare, which means quite close to the Indian skin tones and its going to suit every Indian skin tone from very fair to dark. However, in pictures its looking a lot more orange-y, may be due to lighting.
The texture is semi matte. Its not drying or difficult to apply and neither very creamy. Its more towards matte than satiny texture. Its moisturizing and light on the lips, does not tugs while applying. It has a very slight sheen to it, which can be seen under the lights, which actually makes the lipstick look prettier.
The pigmentation is bang on! One swipe is absolutely enough to get the color! Love it! I tend to apply another layer, which makes it two swipes, just to make sure that its absolutely opaque. Though you wouldn’t need that.
The lipstick lasts fairly long! With light meals and drinks, I noticed that the lipstick disappeared only from the inner rim of my lips, rest of the color was intact for about 7-8 hours. But if you have a full meal or something like a burger or a pizza or anything which requires licking your lips a lot, the lipstick will disappear completely, leaving behind a faint stain. It does transfers and due to its semi matte texture.
The bullet is cut at an angle and doesn’t have that old school pointy tip to it. Though I like the pointy tip as well, since it helps apply the lipstick to the corners in a better way. This angular cut is a little difficult to work with while applying to the either corners of the lips and towards the outline. But still not very bad. It can be worked upon.
I am in absolute love with this lipstick. Its a beautiful nude shade with a lovely texture and awesome lasting power! Its actually a must have if you like nude shades and if you want to start with a nude shade, go get this one!! Awesome product!!
