Faces Moisture Rich Lipstick in French Rose: Review and Swatches

The brand Faces Canada has finally carved a niche in my heart..I have and am trying their different ranges of lipsticks and it hasn't failed me yet and their eye pencils have a been a talk of the town since quite sometime now. Today's lippy is from their Moisture rich range..
Check it out!!!

Packaging:
The Moisture Rich range of Faces Canada lipsticks score really high in terms of packaging. They are classy, user friendly and pretty sturdy as well. The black lipstick case has the brand name in silver and a colour depicting bottom. The only issue is its size. At times it appears too bulky to me,I have to struggle hard to fit it in my lipstick case.

The Shade: French Rose
Well here starts my problem pretty much.. (The only job that I think would've suited me to the T,would have been to give names to cosmetics) The brand calls it French Rose,but there's nothing Rosy about it (until maybe the roses in France are only orange in colour)
French Rose is a bright warm orange,with red undertones..super bright! Its a difficult shade to be described! A hot orange maybe :)

Texture:
French Rose has a thick creamy texture. It gives you "I have something on my lips" kind of a feeling. It is hydrating for sure and glides on easily.

My Take:


This is my first and only moisture rich lippy so far and though I like its pigmentation and quality,still it rarely comes out of my stash. The reason being the intensity of the shade. Its such a bright orange (the very reason why I bought this) that I often pair it up with another shade to neutralize it a bit. It at times looks pretty neon on my NC 35 skin tone. A very gorgeous summery shade for those who can dare to wear. The staying power of the lippy is 3-4 hours,leaving behind a stain. Due to its creamy texture,its highly transferable (be ready to see your lips on every glass and cup till the lippy completely wears off)

My Likes:
1. Sturdy packaging.
2. Colour on the bottom helps locating in the stash.
3. Highly pigmented.
4. Bright warm orange shade.
5. Affordable
6. Easily available at kiosks and online.
7. Moisture rich for sure.

My Dislikes:
1. Shade name is misleading.
2. Transferable.
3. Personally.. too bright for me.

Last Word:
Faces Moisture Rich Lipstick in French Rose is a super bright orange lippy. The shade is warm and the formula is thick. Though a little bulky,I like the packaging.

Repurchase:
I won't be able to finish it up before it expires !!!

Over All Rating: 3.8/5
