Faces GLAM ON Lipstick #04 Sugar Candy: Review /FOTD

Faces GLAM ON Lipstick(Rs 499/4.5 g) #04 Sugar Candy is a  light cool pink with satin finish . The  lipstick is lightweight to wear and feels comfortable on lips and  stayed for a little over 2 hrs on me. 

The Lipstick comes in a standard gunmetal colored shiny tube, with a silver rim in the middle ,and there is no shade indicator anywhere else except for the bottom label. The cap shuts with a click and though it may seem very unattractive to look at, I find the packaging as neat and travel friendly. . 

The texture of this lipstick is creamy and slick, and glides on effortlessly on lips, but upon application it sets to a satin finish. The color is quite opaque even for a light shade as this one, and it covers imperfections or pigmentation in two gentle swipes.. It does feel very comfortable to wear. The lipstick transfers a lot though! 

At the end of wear, the color fades evenly and there's a soft pink stain left behind which looks quite nice by itself, like a tint or so..

The lipstick is quite moisturizing too as I didn't feel any dryness afterwards, infact my lips did feel soft and supple. It has ingredients like Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil and Vit E so I guess those ingredients did the trick. It does not bleed but might settle into lip lines . I could not detect any scent in the lipstick , though if you really put your nose close to it, there's a hint of cosmetic like artificial scent.

Overall, the Faces GLAM ON Lipstick in Sugar Candy is just an average lipstick, though looking at the price point I expected it to be better. I have tried the Go-Chic lipsticks from Faces too,and the Moisture rich ones as well, so my expectations from this product were high but it did fail me in certain areas, like staying ability and settling into fine lines. Of course , moisturizing properties are nice, but for me, that's not the only characteristic I'm looking for in a lip color. I wouldn't recommend!!

I'm looking forward to trying some Ultime Pro Matte lipsticks from Faces sometime just to reinstate my faith in Faces lipsticks :)
