Hey Gals… for those who might not know, yesterday Anamika just made many of us very emotional with her heartfelt status update on facebook. I tell you Anamika we all love you, we all love wiseshe and we all love each other……. Oh so much of LOVE is happening around but then this is the only reason why we all are here… I hope everyone agrees with me on this point.
So coming to the review, today I shall be reviewing Shade08- FIG from the Faces Ultime Pro longwear range.

My experience with Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Lipstick 08 Fig:
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a matte black colored grainy plastic sleek tube. It has got the lipstick’s name embossed on it in silver. The shade name and number are mentioned on a shade’s colored sticker at the bottom of the tube.
The cap has a click shut mechanism, thereby making it travel friendly.
Texture: Just like the other lippies from this range, this shade too has a very soft and creamy texture which glides on lips very smoothly.
Pigmentation: This shade is not opaque in a single swipe and needs double swipes for an opaque coverage. The color pay off is not awesome but is above average.
Staying Power: This lippy stayed for some 5-6 hours on my lips with a lot of talking, eating & drinking. This particular shade does not stain but to get rid of all the traces of the color a makeup remover will be required.
My take:I am a little confused about its shade and I consider it to be a brick color which at times looks like a light reddish brown color. This is the last brown shade from this range and I must say it is most wearable. Out of all the brown lippies if I were to choose one, I would have certainly chosen this one.
Though this color lacks opacity in single swipe but then who would mind a second swipe. Infact most of us always go for the second swipe for more précised application. So the pigmentation really does not bother me.
This shade will suit all Indian skin tones, from duskier to lighter tones.
It does not dry out my lips. But already dry lips will need a lip balm beneath it and make sure to exfoliate. This too seems to settles in fine lines, which of course I don’t like.
What I like about Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Lipstick 08 Fig:
- Smooth and soft texture.
- Sleek packaging.

- Does not transfer much.
- Good staying power.

What I don’t like about Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Lipstick 08 Fig:
- No ingredients list anywhere.

Will I recommend: Yes, this is definitely recommended to everybody. I am more into pinks, corals and reds so I won’t repurchase.
