I am crazy about lip colors, specially for the red ones. As I have dusky skin, red or different shade of red lipsticks suits me well. I usually wear LAKME or MAC lipcolors and for the last few months I have been looking for various options of red lipsticks from MAC and other brands, but MAC store in kolkata is always out of stock, don't know why!! Other brands like Lakme or Maybelline could not satisfied me with their options, so I was bit heart broken, then I found this Faces Vintage Red lipcolor on a online store called Urbantouch.com. I often buy cosmetics and jewellery from this site, they have pretty good collections. So I ordered this Faces Glam On Vintage Red lipstick. Though I was not sure about the color, as the site don't have good swatches for the lipcolor, but as it was on a discount I thought to give it a try (I bought this lipstick for Rs. 403/-). I also ordered some NYX lipgloss and Loreal Open Eyes Pro eyeshadow with it. I will try to write reviews on these products too within a few days (hope so :D ). Now to the Faces Glam On Vintage Red  lipcolor, it is a opaque color, which will give you full coverage. The color looked nice gorgeous red, I was really excited to try it on, I wore it without any lipbase or lip liners and here goes my review, but first some details...

Quantity: 4 gm
Price: 499 INR

Color:
Faces Glam On Vintage Red lipstick is beautiful cherry red in color, which will go nicely with all kind of skin tones. I know many dusky beauties think red is not the right color for them, but that is not true, red always enhance the skin color, you just need to peek the right shade for you. Faces Vintage Red lipstick shade has a nice elegant red color which will work really good on Indian skin (wheaties brown/ olive) tone.

Texture:
The texture of this lipstick is very smooth and moisturizing. The texture is very light and glide smoothly on lips. As this color is sheer or opaque you can apply it directly on your lips. Two to three swipe is enough for full coverage. It will give your lips nice shiney coverage which will make them look luscious. ;)

Coverage:
Single swipe will give you semi sheer look and 2 to 3 swipe will give you full coverage.

Pigmentation: It is very tinted.

Fragrance: Mild vanilla scent.

Color lasting power: I would not say that it has has good staying power, it will stays on lips for 3 hrs maximum and you do need to touch up if you are eating in between but still ok enough for me.

Packaging:
Very average, not attractive or sturdy. I think Faces should work on their product packaging.

My Experience with Faces Glam On Vintage Red:
Well with overall experience, I would really suggest this lipcolor for its nice gorgeous cherry red tint, shade is so beautiful that Faces Vintage Red lipstick can surely be listed in 10 best red lip colors. I took some photographs of the lipstick in day light and flash light, so you can see the exact shade of it. It's a perfect shade for any cocktail party or wedding. Though I am really unhappy with it's packaging still just for the perfect red shade and the way its moisturise the lips, I will surely give a thumbs up for it. So give it a try girls and let me know how you like it. :)
