By now, you all must have realized my love for matte lip colours be it liquid or normal lipsticks. Whenever a brand launches a matte range, my interest level shoots up and that’s what happened with the new Faces Glam On Velvet Matte lipstick range. These are described as “weightless and soft matte” and I could not wait to try them out. I’ve been using three shades from the range and here’s my take on these.

Faces Glam On Velvet Matte Lipstick Review
The lipsticks come in a black and gold outer packaging. What I like is that the cap is transparent so you can make out the colour in an instant. The base stickers are also in the same shade as the lipstick and that helps when you have more than one.
At first swipe, the lipsticks feel a bit dry and the application is not that smooth. However, things get better once you’ve used the lipsticks couple of times. They apply evenly and there is no tugging and pulling. I like the texture of these. They are not the drying, 100% flat matte type but rather, true to the description, have a soft matte finish. That means, they are a lot more comfortable to wear and they don’t suck out every bit of moisture from the lips.
The Faces Glam On Velvet Matte lipsticks feel weightless and are incredibly pigmented. One swipe gives opaque coverage and they last pretty much all day long. The colour fades uniformly and leaves a stain behind.
Here are the swatches of the three shades that I have – Plum Plum, Terra Cotta and Black Currant.
The Faces Glam On Velvet Matte lipsticks are really nice. The price is reasonable and the texture, pigmentation and staying power is very good. They have a wide range of shades to suit all skin tones. Definitely, a range worth trying out.
