PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

FACES GLAM ON Pefect Eyeliner is Formulated to deliver a dramatic definition with one easy swipe.The intense payoff brightens the eyes with a pure, seductive and vibrant line of color. Transfer proof, smudge proof and no fade formula ensures long stay dramatic look all day long.

My Experience: 

FACES Glam On Perfect Noir Eyeliner is packaged in a very cute and little bottle. This Felt tip eyeliner is perfect to achieve the winged eye liner look. It is not blackest of black eye liner and needs at least two  swipes to ensure dark black color. The liner takes just couple of seconds to dry and gives a glossy finish. The only flaw it has is that it is not water proof and that may be a big problem in sweaty and hot weather. Other than that it is a good eyeliner in affordable price.

I had a wear time of 6-7 hours.

Pros:

  1. Easy to carry packaging.
  2. Glossy Finish.
  3. Dries Quickly.
  4. Affordable.
  5. Felt tip perfect for winged eye liner.
  6. Long Wear Time.

Cons:

  1. Not a Water Proof Formula.

Rating: 4/5.

My Initial Experience: If you are a regular reader of my blog you might know that I love Glitters, I was thinking of trying out the loose pigments or glitters since long and came across these recently. The Pictures above will pretty much explain the packaging, 6 transparent jars are stacked above each other. Sparkle Dust have following pigments:

  1. Silver
  2. Golden
  3. Pink
  4. Blue
  5. Purple
  6. White

These pigments need an eye shadow base of same color to give the best results. I used Pink and Purple creamy eye shadows as base and then tap Pink and Purple loose pigments with a wet brush all over the lids.

FACES Stackables Sparkle

If you are a beginner you may find them a bit difficult to use due to their tendency of fall out, however if you will take care of few things you will master it soon.

-First thing is, use a damp eye shadow brush to pick the glitters.

-Second, tap the glitters lightly on lids, DO NOT blend the glitters, only tap it lightly.

-Third, use a creamy eye shadow as base or a gel eye liner, it would help the glitters to stick to the base.

– Dust the fallen out glitters/pigments with a clean brush.

I have also used Silver and Golden glitters on my nails.
FACES Stackables Sparkle Dust nails

The technique to achieve this is:

– Apply base coat.

– Pick the glitters with a damp brush, I have used an eye shadow brush. Place them on nails and dab lightly when     the nail polish Is still wet.

– Seal the end result with a transparent top coat.

I will reserve my verdict for now, will be using these glitters for 2-3 days and will let you know my final review. Till then enjoy the pics and my first impression.

Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green: Review and Swatches

Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green

MRP: Rs. 449

We have previously reviewed Faces long wear eye Pencil – Solid Black and today I am going to review an another shade from the same ranged called Forest Green. I ordered it online from Nykaa some time back and using it a lot lately, forest green is a good color option if you need a change from Routine black Eye pencils/Kajals.

My Experience:

Packaging: The Eye Pencil comes in black color with a green colored plastic cap. There is no inbuilt sharpener.

Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green-packaging Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green-packaging1 Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green-packaging closeup

Color: Very Beautiful dark green color.

Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green-swatch

Texture: Texture is smooth and creamy but does not crumble. It glides smoothly and provides a dark green color in one swipe.

Application: Application is ideal if you apply it with light hand, it gives the precise finish and color in single swipe. I have applied it on water line and on upper eye lids and did not found any issue with the application. In the pics below I used this Faces Forest green Eye pencil as eye shadow and see how beautiful it looks, it sets quickly but leaves enough time for blending.

Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green-application
Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green-eye swatch

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is one area where it earned brownie points, it goes opaque in single swipe. Just the single stroke is required for full color coverage.

Longevity: I had wear time of 7-8  hours with slight fading on upper eye lid. I am very impressed with the staying power, the people with hooded eyes may experience smudging but I didn’t had any problem.

Removal: You need good oil based remover to remove all the traces of this Eye Pencil.

Pros:

  1. Beautiful dark green color which is a nice change from routine black pencils.
  2. Waterproof
  3. Smudge proof
  4. Glides smoothly due to creamy texture.
  5. Highly Pigmented.
  6. Long wear time.
  7. No irritation experienced.

Cons:

  1. No sharpener provided.
  2. Need a good oil based remover to remove properly.

Rating: 5/5. It is one of those eye pencils which looks equally beautiful both on water line and upper eye lid. The color is beautiful and captivating.  Stays intact for long hours. Totally recommend it!!

Faces Ultime Pro Eyeshadow Crayon: Uptown Girl 04: Review and Swatches

Faces Ultime Pro Eyeshadow Crayon: Uptown Girl 04

MRP: Rs. 599, bought online from Nykaa.com

Faces Ultime Pro Eyeshadow Crayon-Uptown Girl 04

Lately I am finding myself reaching out to Faces products frequently. They too are not leaving any stone unturned to capture the Indian Market. I will be reviewing a series of products from Faces so watch-out for my upcoming posts, you can see the previously reviewed Faces Ultime Pro Starry Matte Lip crayon Obsession ….We really liked it.

Lets jump to the review now.

The pictures below will give you a clear idea of the Packaging. My only complaint for the Packaging is same that we mentioned in Faces Ultime Pro Starry Matte Lip crayon Obsession , the transparent plastic cap seems to be very delicate and may crack with slight mishandling.

Faces Ultime Pro Eyeshadow Crayon Uptown Girl 04 is PINK in color with hints of Golden Shimmer here and there. Closeup of the hand swatch below will show you the the color perfectly, isn’t it Gorgeous 🙂

My Review:

I wore it to my Friend’s wedding and tried few looks with it as well. One of the look I will be showing below. I am more comfortable with Eye Shadow Crayons rather than powder eye shadows, they are so easy to apply and blend. These Eye Shadow Crayons are hugely popular in Makeup Newbies. The texture of the eye shadow is Super Creamy which does not set instantly hence leaves you with the enough time to blend it perfectly. Once it is blended properly, it sets completely and does not budge at all. I had a wear time of 6-7 hours without any Primer underneath. Listing the pros and cons below.

Pros:

  1. Color coded Packaging for Easy recognition.
  2. Beautiful Pink color with hint of Shimmer, perfect for Party Season.
  3. Creamy texture.
  4. Easy to Blend.
  5. Long Lasting.
  6. Highly Pigmented, 1-2 swipes are enough to build the color.

Cons:

  1. The transparent plastic cap seems to be very delicate and may crack with slight mishandling.
  2. No Sharpener provided, Brand could have provided the sharpener like they did with Faces Ultime Pro Starry Matte Lip crayon

Rating: 4.5/5

I was at Faces counter looking for Magneteyes Kajal launched recently but it was out of stock, however SA at the counter got me convinced to buy this Solid black Eye Pencil which claims to be waterproof and smudge proof. He drew the line on his hand with it and then rubbed cream on it after few seconds, i was very impressed to see that the  line was intact, no smudging and no fading.

Packaging: The Eye Pencil comes in black color with a black colored plastic cap. There is no inbuilt sharpener.

Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte Lipstick – Red Addict review and Swatches

Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte Lipstick: Red Addict 13

MRP: Rs. 699

Faces ultime pro matte range

Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte Lipstick Red Addict

Packaging: Faces ultime pro lipstick in red addict comes in a long cylindrical pen style matte black case. The name of the shade is written at the bottom of the case. 
Faces ultime pro long wear matte lipstick-packaging
 
Color: Color is a beautiful bright orangish red shade. The shade name is misleading as it is neither a red nor a orange shade but a mix of both. It will suit Medium to fair skin tone.

Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte Red Addict Lipstick Swatch
 
Texture/formula: Texture is smooth and buttery. Also, it does not make the lips dry at all and that is very unusual for a matte lipstick. However it settles into lip lines and highlights them, one of the disappointing trait i found in this lipstick. 
 
Application: Due to buttery texture the lipstick glides smoothly on the lips, however you need to exfoliate and moisturize your lips before application as this lipstick has a tendency to highlight dry flaky areas. Also, moisturizer will keep the lip dryness at bay as matte lipsticks tends to make the lips dry.

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is the best part of this matte range. One swipe gives the amazing color coverage. I love the strong pigmented lipsticks as the strong color gives the oomph factor and you need to worry about the rest of the makeup. In pics below i have kept rest of the makeup very basic and let the lips do all the talking  🙂 such is the power of this pigmented lip shade named Red Addict.
faces ultime pro matte lipstick-red addict

Longevity: I am wearing it to office daily for past 3-4 days and i must say it does stay for the considerably longggg time. On me it stayed for 6-7 hours with minor fading around the corner of the lips, i had a meal in between and tea as well. If you eat something oily then it tends to fade from the middle of the lip and requires touch up. Overall, it has a very good wear time and i am very impressed with it.

Staining/Removal: I have not experienced any staining on the lips. I removed it with Sephora oil based makeup remover and  it got removed very easily.

Pros:

  1. Sleek Packaging
  2. Very beautiful bright mix of orange+red color.
  3. Buttery smooth texture.
  4. Application is very easy, lipstick glides smoothly on lips.
  5. It does not make the lips dry.
  6. Superbly pigmented lipstick.
  7. Gives a glowy effect on the face, brightens the face instantly.
  8. Long wear time.
  9. It does not stain the lips.

Cons:

  1. Highlights the dry flaky areas on lips.
  2. Need to exfoliate the lips.
  3. Being the matte texture, it may feel dry on lips however i have not experienced any dryness at all.

My Verdict: This is the first time i have tried a matte shade from Faces and i am really impressed with the packaging, texture, pigmentation and staying power. I Recommend it!!
