Faces Ultime Pro Longwear Lipstick 03-Passion
Hey beautiful ladies, so as promised after my haul post let’s get going with the review’s chain. As soon as I came home after purchasing these black beauties I had a hurried urge to try the shade PASSION. This shade was a love at first sight for me, read on to know how I like this lippy.

My expereience with Faces Ultime Pro Longwear Lipstick 03-Passion:
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 click shuts thereby making it travel friendly.
Texture: The texture of this is really very smooth, soft and creamy. No word other than creamy would exactly define its texture. Since they are longwear mattes I actually assumed them to be a little tuggy in nature but this was not the case here. Am absolutely a fan of its texture. Despite of such soft and creamy feel the finish of this lipstick is absolutely matte without any glossy or creamy sheen.
Pigmentation: This lipsticks scores well over its pigmentation front too. Just one swipe and I get a decent amount of color on my lips. This means a single swipe gives opaque coverage, good news for pigmented lips.
Staying Power: Standing true to its claims, I tried this lipstick without a lip balm only for 6 hours (12 noon to 6 in evening) and then I removed it, since I had to get dressed to go somewhere. And in these six hours I had my lunch, lots of water and a little on and off munching. Am sure that this specific color would last for more than 8 hours with only slight fading.
Final Verdict: This lipstick is a warm shade of Red with slight orangish tones. The shade would suit almost every skin tone from dusky to fair. I love how this lippy brightens up my face and leaves me with no further need of any heavy makeup, just a pop of color on my face and am good to go. PASSION is a type of shade which can be very well carried in both day and night.
I have already expressed my love for its texture. It does not extremely dry my lips but for girls with dry lips, make sure you exfoliate your lips properly before using it so as not to sport flaky looking lips. Since this is a true matte lippy it is a bit drying post application and dry lips are advised to apply lip balm underneath and you will enjoy this lippy a lot.
Though the lipstick is very light and feels as if not applied anything, but this the case when only 1-2 swipes are applied. But if someone tries to layer this lipstick on and on, considering uneven application in 1-2 swipes, you will end up with flaky and sticky lips. Believe me when I say so, because I tried doing that for this review. And after layering, it feels sticky to the extent that one can easily feel the lips separating when you open your mouth (movement by movement). So please don’t layer too much of this product, infact there is no need to do so.
The lipstick has an amazing staying power. It has only slight transfers on cups and glasses.
What I like about Faces Ultime Pro Longwear Lipstick 03-Passion:
- Awesome color pay off.
- Smooth and soft texture.
- Does not settle in fine lines.
- Even coverage and fades of evenly.
- Sleek packaging.
- Travel friendly.
- This particular shade is apt for all skin tones.
- Brightens up the face.
- Stands true to all its claims.
- Excellent staying power.
- Minutely transfers.
What I dont like about Faces Ultime Pro Longwear Lipstick 03-Passion:
- No ingredients list anywhere.
Can’t think of any other con.
Rating: 4.5/5 (Minus 0.5 for hiding the ingredients)
Will I recommend: Yes Yes Yes… At this price I cannot expect such an amazing quality. This product is worth every penny spent. Few may feel it slightly drying but then this is how longwear lipsticks generally behave. Trust me its better than any other drugstore longwear lipstick be it Revlon suedes, Maybelline superstays, colorbar truly lasting lippies etc.
P.S. The review went very lengthy in an urge to be very very very clear about every aspect. Excuse me for that
