Faces Satin Matte Lipstick in Cafe'Latte Brown: Review and Swatches

Though its super wintery here in delhi and Nudes and MLBBs are not the perfect mates to kill the chill still today's post is about a caramelly shade that would remind you of your hot cuppa (next I'll post a shade for fall season..God Promise!)
The brand Faces Canada happens to be one of my favorite cosmetic brands for its quality,packaging and price combo.The lippy today we're gonna talk about is from Faces Satin Matte Range,its my first from this range! Read on to know my experience:


Company Claims:
Faces Lipstick Satin Matte is enhanced with vitamin E and raw mango extract to help skin repair in opposition to climatic change and also to guard and dampen with every beautifying application. Faces Lipstick Satin Matte offers uniform lip colour coverage and is free from perfume and lanolin. It is very moisturizing and does not dry out.
Faces Lipstick Satin Matte has shades to boost up your lips. It offers a semi matte finish to your lips and is highly pigmented so a single swipe is more than enough to offer an intense colour to your lips.

Price/Quantity: INR 299/- (available for less online) / 4.2gm

Ingredients:
Packaging:
Faces Satin Matte Lipsticks come in a classy round shiny black casing.Its petite for the quantity of product it has inside. The only problem is that because of its round shape it goes on rolling when placed on a flat surface :/ (I know it sounds weird but I'm always afraid of breaking it..it just goes on rollingggg..)

Shade: Cafe'Latte Brown
Cafe'Latte Brown is a caramel brown kinda shade. It has no specific undertones. Though it looks pretty deep on my hand swatch,it comes out much lighter kinda mlbb on my lips. The shade is subtle and can be worn everyday..a boon for office goers! Would suit all skin tones,specially the duskier beauties!

Texture:
The texture of the lipstick is super creamy.It glides on the lips like a dream. Infact unlike its name its more satin than matte. My dry lips do not require a balm underneath.

My Experience:
This is my first buy from the Faces Satin Matte range and I love how pigmented and moisturising these lipsticks are. The colour is buildable though it gives an opaque finish in a single swipe. The shade though caramel brown on lighter skin can prove to be very natural mlbb shade on deeper warmer skin tones. Because the shade doesn't have any specific undertones,it did not brighten up my face noticeably but still its the kind of  shade one would reach out for often as it goes well with whatever  one's wearing. I generally prefer my lipsticks to be fragrance-free,but this one has a very yummy coconut-caramel fragrance to it which isn't at all overpowering. It also has a good staying power considering its so moisturising.It stayed on me for 3-4 hours and I don't even expect more than this from such a creamy lipstick.
My Likes:
1. Super Creamy.
2. Nice everyday shade.
3. Good pigmentation.
4. Doesn't accentuate fine lines.
5. Staying power is more than average for this texture.
6. Very moisturising (feels like a lip balm)
7. Affordable.
8. Mild Coconut-Caramel fragrance.  

My Dislikes:
1. The round casing goes on rolling even on the flat surface :/
2. Its so creamy..yet to see how its gonna face the north Indian summers.
3. Has parabens in the ingredient list.

Last Word:
I really liked the formula.This particular shade would suit everyone and the duskier beauties would love it to bits.

Repurchase:
Definitely..but some other shade from this range!

Over All Rating: 4/5
