Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte LipStick 01 Spice
Hey gorgeous people, am up with the my second review from the Faces ultime pro longwear range. By my earlier review you all must know how much I am in love with the shade “Passion” but for today’s shade i.e., 01-SPICE, the case is not similar. Read on to know why.
About Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte LipStick:
Matte finish for the uber chic! A vivid color burst that lasts more than 8 hours. Enriched with vitamin E and anti-aging oxidants. Creamy texture gives smooth, water proof high coverage. Available in a wide range of swanky shades.
Shades Offered: Company offers twelve shades in this range.
Ingredients: No clue about this, neither it’s mentioned on the lipstick tube nor on the website. I don’t like why they have hidden the ingredients.
Shelf Life: 30 months.
Price: 599 for 2.5gm
My experience with Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte LipStick 01 Spice:
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 as mentioned in my earlier review this lippy too has a very smooth, soft and creamy texture.
Pigmentation: The shade SPICE lags in pigmentation. It does not give full coverage in one swipe. Though the color is buildable but again too much of product layering will end up in that dry & sticky feel which I hate. Pigmented lips will not have a happy time with this shade. This shade has got some golden micro shimmers which are not so much visible in the bullet but are very obvious on lips and swatches.
Staying Power: This particular shade fails to its claims when we talk about its staying power. This is definitely not long lasting. It has got average staying power of 3-4 hours. After which some slight shimmer is left without any color on lips. Oh come on!!!! I mean who would love to have those naked lips with shimmer… not me at least LLL
Final Verdict: This lipstick is in natural brown color which falls into the category of nude shades. It has some very obvious golden shimmer which I don’t like at all. Infact I don’t really understand the thought of adding shimmer to a nude shade. The color looks darker in bullet and on the bottom sticker but in lips swatches its lighter. You can get the exact bullet color on layering the product but then the sticky and dry feel will kill your mood.
I would suggest girls with a combination of dry & pigmented lips to stay away from this shade since the color pay off is not opaque in 1-2 swipes and multiple swipes will terribly dry out your lips.
Girls without lip pigmentation can give it a shot as this is a beautiful nude shade.
Since I have lips more towards pinkier side, this lipstick tends to give an illusion of having pink tones in the pictures. But trust me the only reason for this is bad color pay off of this shade.
This lippy would hardly survive full meals, only occasional snacking and drinking can be carried by this lippy.
What I like about Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte LipStick 01 Spice:
- Smooth and soft texture.

Will I recommend: Yes for non-pigmented lips and nude shade lovers.
