8 Faces Ultime Pro Longwear Matte Lipsticks On Desi Brown Skin (NC 40-42)
How are you all?
Today I am here with another post dedicated for Desi Brown skins (NC 40 -42). Last year Ritika reviewed all the Faces Ultime Pro Longwear Matte Lipsticks and became a total fan of them, you can check the reviews here.
After all the reviews I too wanted to give these lippies a shot and have my opinions about these working with my NC 40 skin tone. Dig in to know which out of these shades looked most flattering on me and which among these is a complete NO for brown skins.

Spice is the lightest brown out of the three browns from this collection. This shade looks beautiful on my skin tone but in order full opacity I had to swipe it twice. I would have loved the shade even more if it was sans any shimmer. Matte lipstick with shimmers does not make any sense to me.
Since this is not a very deep brown, the shade will look good on medium to fair skin tones as well.
Just like its name, it is an exact Cinnamon shade, a complete treat for brown shade lovers. This shade is a great pick to carry with brown skins, but its dark intensity made me look years older which is not a good thing, but Indian brown skins with a soft corner for brown can definitely pick this fabulously pigmented shade.
The shade may look a bit too deep for medium to fair skin tones.
Look At Me is a true coral orange shade. It took some efforts in getting even on my lips and does not compliment my skin tone very well. I wasnâ€™t much happy with this shade, but to my surprise it looked better in pictures than in person. However the shade makes an amazing bet for fair to medium skins, but brown skins can definitely stay away from this shade. Not the best orange for desi brown skin tones.
This is a gorgeous maroon shade that looks great on Indian skin tones. This shade covers every bit of pigmentation in a single swipe and is a perfect maroon shade for desi skins. This shade due to its intense deep category made me look mature, but this does not mean that it did not flatter my NC 40 brown skin tone. If you are brown skinned girl and have a thing for deep maroon shades, then you without a doubt can pick this shade. Girls with medium to fair skin too can try this shade.
Flirty Pink is a beautiful cool toned everyday wear pink shade. I happen to quite like the shade but if you have even slight deeper skin tone than mine, then this shade will probably wash you out. This shade will flatter medium to fair skins very beautifully.
Passion is probably the hottest shade from this range. It is a gorgeous shade of red which has fabulous texture and color pay off. This shade will not just flatter brown skins but is an ideal bet for all Indian skin tones from Fair to Dusky. This is my favorite from this entire range.
Very Berry is the deepest shade from this collection. Just like its name it is an intense shade of berry which is perfect for fall season. The shade is not great for those with fair to medium skins, a bit too intense for them actually, but for NC 40 desi brown skins like mine the shade makes for a great match, even deeper skin tones than mine will carry this shade very well.
Fig is a gorgeous brick brown shade. This is actually the best brown from this collection. I am not a huge brown shade lover but if I were to chose between the three browns from this collection, then I would simply chose this one. This is a perfect brown shade, neither too light nor too intense, just a gorgeous brown to go well with all Indian skin tones, brown skins will carry this shade effortlessly and medium to fair skins will too like this shade.
These were the eight gorgeous Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte Lipsticks on Desi Brown Skin (NC 40 -42). These lippies are really fabulous and cover the deepest of lip pigmentation. These lipsticks have not received their well deserved share of appreciation probably because of its price, poor promotion by brand and less availability of faces stores. If you have not yet tried these lipsticks, then you must definitely try these out and know why I feel that these lippies have been underrated.
