So I posted about the newly launched lipstick collection by Faces Cosmetics here a few days ago. Since then I was excited to try out and review one of their lipsticks. The first one I got was this Faces Ultime Pro Velvete Matte Lipstick in the shade Swept Away. I purely chose this because of its name. 😀 So today I am here with its review!
About The Looks!
The lipstick comes in a black box with the lipstick inside. The box has all the major details, like the brand name, collection name, shade name with a color code, price, key ingredients, claims, shelf life and much more. The lipstick comes in a black round matte finish classy casing. I like the packaging. Its simple and sturdy. It has a silver band in the center with the brand name written. The top of the lipstick tube has the Faces logo and the bottom has the shade name, number and other information.

My experience with the shade Swept Away!
Let’s talk about the color of this shade first. When I saw the picture of this lipstick I thought it would be a bright coral pink color, perfect for sprig. But when it arrived and I saw it, it was entirely different. But I must say its an equally pretty and lovely color. I don’t think I have any color like this. Its a bright pink with fuchsia and red undertones. Yes, its a warm color. It might not look warm in pictures but it is. It a very pretty color and is certainly perfect for spring and summer! The pigmentation is awesome! One swipe and you will get the desired color!
The texture is super smooth and satiny, exactly what the brand claims. Its matte but not drying at all! It does not tugs or flakes or chaps. Its moisturizing and very light. Love the formulation of this lipstick. It does keeps the lips supple and soft, just like the brand claims. I was really happy when I used it. But one of the claims which says last up to 8 hours, well didn’t seem to be true at least for this shade. Because while I am writing this review I have already tested another shade from the collection and that one has a different result. So may be this shade doesn’t lasts very long. It stays on for approximately 4-5 hours without meals and then starts fading gradually. But with meals and drinks the lipstick disappears completely, however, it leaves a beautiful rosy pink stain behind. The stain is even and a lip balm on top of it would make it look even more beautiful!!
It does have a faint vanilla-ish smell to it, not too bothering and I did not experience any funny taste to it. It does transfers a bit but does not bleed.
Overall, I like the lipstick a lot! Mainly because of its color and its awesome texture and formulation. Even though it does not lasts very long, I would not mind reapplying it or I will layer up a lip balm on top of it. That will depend on my mood and the look I want. I would certainly recommend everyone to try this lipstick. Its a shade that everyone can wear! Great for Indian skin tones too!
