OH!! why did not thee meet me before???SATIN MATTE Lip Color by FACES

hey all
Today I will be reviewing..something that I did not know existed...I had heard and Read about FACES cosmetics ,which supposedly are from CANADA....however it was their eye pencils which have been blogged about the most.
I was just browsing through their other products...( after I bought a super creamy,long stay eye pencil in black..will review that soon as well)when I chanced upon these beauties..
Colored shades to enhance the lips. Infused with Vitamin E to protect and moisturize with each beautifying application. FACES’ lipsticks come in over 180 shades in matte, sheer, cream and shimmer finishes.

There is no other detail on the site about the type of lipstick Satin matte is..:(

the berry brown  (Left)and the cordovan(Right)

single swipe swatches......berry brown and cordovan

i purchased two shades from their range
  • berry brown..which on me looks more berry than brown
  • cordovan which is a mauvish brown shade..
The lip color comes in a plain black lipstick case which is nothing grand,but does give a decent look...
the lip color on application is extremely smooth and creamy,and later settles to  a semi matte finish.I loved the shades I have.They last well on me..around 4-5 hours .It fades evenly and does not settle into my fine lip lines..

What I loved::))
  • The absolute creamy and smooth texture of the lipstick.also the fact that it settles down to give a semi mate effect
  • It does not settle/accentuate my fine lines.
  • It does not dry my fact it is very moisturising for my lips(which are mature and wrinkly:P)
  • In fact there is something i noted with this lip color...It plumps up my puckerssss.....i have not seen it being mentioned on the site.....and neither did the SA mention it...but it does!!!!!
  • It fades very evenly
  • Lasts fairly long around 4-5 hours with non oily mild eating...( after a particularly oily meal :P...of course it vanished.
  • It gives me such a good feeling that I do not mind reapplying it anywhere and everywhere..
  • very reasonably 299 for  4 gm...( i got it at 20% off at 239:)))))))))
  • when it settles down ,it is partly non transferable....
What i did not like
  • Not easily available
  • the Faces counter also did not have all the shades mentioned on the site
  • since its so creamy it tends to bleed and I have have have to use a lip liner with it.....

The shades I have
  1. Berry brown...very pretty berry color>( i do not have a single reddish shade..and this looks so wineish/burgundyish berryish on me...It brightens my face even without any makeup.
  2. Cordovan..which is a mauvish my MLBB shade very on the go kinda shade...will suit all skin tones.....
rating 4.5/5......-0.5 for the poor availability....
will i repurchase??
yes surely but in a different shade now:)
Have you tried them?????
lemme know!!!
