Faces is a brand that consistently comes out with very good quality products. I love their matte lipsticks and lip crayons, eye pencils, kajal and liquid highlighters. I’ve been trying out two of their new base makeup products and absolutely loving them. Read on to know more about the Faces Ultime Pro Second Skin Foundation & Pressed Powder.
Faces Ultime Pro Second Skin Foundation
A serum based foundation, it is super luxurious on your skin and has anti-ageing properties. It gives seamless adjustable coverage and a natural matte and velvety smooth finish that looks and feels like your own skin. As it melts into your skin like a serum, the result is a noticeably brighter more youthful appearance. Available in a unique packaging with a glass bottle and dropper, and in four shades of Ivory, Natural, Beige and Sand, FACES Ultime Pro Second Skin Foundation matches specifically with the Indian skin tone and comes with SPF 15.
Price – Rs 1499, 30 ml
The product comes in a glass bottle with a push-button dropper for easy dispensing. I am somehow more comfortable with the pump packaging because I think it is more convenient to use. But again, that is completely my personal preference.
The texture of this foundation is beautiful. It truly lives up to its ‘Second Skin’ name because the foundation is a dream to apply and it completely blends into the skin. It is extremely light and feels weightless. It gives medium to high coverage and sets to a matte finish thus making it perfect for those with oily skin. I like that it does not look streaky or cakey and it also does not oxidise. Because it blends so beautifully into the skin, it gives a very natural and even finish. The foundation lasts for around 6 hours.
I have the shade ‘Sand’ which is the darkest in the range and will work if you are NC42-43. If you are darker, this will be quite light. Faces should come up with more shades to match darker complexions because this foundation is really good and matches up to any of the foundations from more expensive brands. I approve!
Faces Ultime Pro Second Skin Pressed Powder
A powdery finish compact makeup, Faces Ultime Pro Second Skin Pressed Powder creates even-toned skin instantly, delivering natural finish to your skin. Step out confidently into the sun as Ultime Pro Second Skin Pressed powder comes with SPF 15 feature, protecting your skin throughout. With an incredibly luxurious texture, medium coverage and being light weight, it is perfect for your daily makeup.

The powder comes in a flip-top packaging with a sponge applicator and a mirror. The powder is finely milled and gives light coverage making it perfect for daily wear. It won’t cover blemishes or imperfections if used on its own but will give a natural, polished look. The powder blends into the skin really well and gives a matte finish. I have the shade Sand and it lasts for around 4 hours.
Below are swatches of the foundation and the powder. It is tough to make out the powder because it matches with my complexion so well.
And here I am wearing the foundation and the powder.
