Faces Cosmetics Satin Matte Lipstick Review - 03 Cordovan

This is for Swetha Dear. Hope you had a blast on your birthday.
This is my first Lipstick from Faces Cosmetics. I bought it through Fashion and you website.

There is no much information about these lipsticks on both their indian and foreign websites. I did find them in one online shopping portal. So I do not know whether these lipsticks are available with retail stores. Faces cosmetics is available in Chennai at Naidu Hall, Pondy Bazaar. I am yet to check their availabilty. Will update if I find them there.,

Here is the link for the online portal:


I got the shade 03 Cordovan:

The price is Rs.299 for 4.2 gms. I got it on a discount for Rs. 209 : D

What is Claims and Ingredients:

My experience:

The color I have is 03 Cordovan. It is brown lipstick with pink undertones.I think this color will look different on different skin tones. On me it looks closely to a pink lipstick. Since it is matte it can give you a washed out look if not topped with a gloss. Though it give matte effect, the lipstick is very creamy and did not dry out my lips. This is the one point I love about it. It melts easily and I am storing this in my fridge. I can't comment on the staying power as none of the lipsticks last on my lips. It stays for around two hours without eating or drinking. The smell of the lipstick is similar to that of the Maybelline Colorsensational Lipsticks. I like the smell. Overall I really like this lipstick.

Very Creamy
Not Drying at all
Will suit most of the skin tones
Glides on smoothly
Smell is mild.

Can give a washed out look on some. You need to top it with a gloss.
Melts easily. You need to store it in the fridge.
Need to handle very carefully or it can break easily.

Here are the swatches:
With Flash:

Without Flash:

On my lips:
I have uneven lips and this lipstick covers my lips decently. The pigmentation is very good. I have lotus lip balm under the lipstick and nothing else.

Overall I like this lipstick and will surely re purchase.

So have you tried these lipsticks? What do you think about these?
