Faces is one of my favourite brands when it comes to makeup (affordable). Their Ultime Pro Matte Lip Crayons are my all time favourite lipsticks, they last whole day long and don’t get drying. Now the brand launched new products two months ago and I picked two of the new launches. I have been testing out the Faces Ultime Pro Blend Finity Stick Foundation for sometime now and will be sharing my experience with you all today –
A foundation stick designed for portability and adjustable coverage that is easy to apply and blends all over the face or just where you need it to mask small imperfections, for that quick and easy on-the-go application! Build up your coverage as much as you require. Its creamy texture allows for a soft, smooth, velvety finish. The formula is enriched by White Clay which gives a cleansed and mattifying effect. The FACES Ultime Pro Blend Finity Stick Foundation provides both, an optical blurring effect and a lifting/soft sculpting effect to the face. Its highly blendable formula provides medium to high coverage and the unique stick format makes it convenient to carry along and apply anywhere, anytime.
Packaging is simple, Faces Ultime Pro Blend Finity Stick Foundation comes in a stick form. It is easy carry around and perfect for on the go touch ups. The stick is thick and has a matte black finish.
Shade – The shade that matched me in all the Faces foundation is Sand, which also happens to be the darkest color. Sand is a good match for me but would cater to only people of NC42-43. The brand definitely needs to step up their game and introduce darker shades as well. I don’t understand why can’t they launch more than 4 shades ?
Texture & Formula – Now when it comes to stick foundations I have only tried Colorbar Full Cover Foundation stick which also happens to be my favourite product from colorbar. Unfortunately I can’t say the same thing about this one here. Texture of Faces Ultime Pro Blend Finity Stick Foundation is quite creamy and thick. IT feels heavy on the skin therefore isn’t perfect for warmer months. Also for combination/oily skin girls this formula would be needed to set with a matte powder.
The formula glides on smoothly and blends quickly. It offers medium to full coverage for sure. However I have realised that the foundation tends to crease and crack as I go on with the day. I have tried it with a silicon based primer but still it accentuates fine lines on my face. Though I can see me using it as an under eye concealer due to its creaminess.
Coverage – Like I said the coverage is good medium to full. You can use it as a concealer as well on the days when you want to avoid heavy makeup. It is creamy and wouldn’t make the under eye area dry. Though you will have to set it with a good setting powder.
Staying Power – I would say 6-7 hours on me before it starts cracking and creasing.
