Is Faces Glam on Lipstick is Barely There too bare?

Faces Glam on Lipstick Review
If a lipstick could shock me, that would be the Faces Glam on Lipstick in Barely There! No, I have never been afraid of vibrant colors which this is not. I was so glad to see the classy tube and when I opened it, my hear sank in my boots! Wondering why? Take a look at the image!


Yes, it has no color at all! I don't know how to review this actually. Still, recently I started wearing it on top of my lipliners . That way, they in fact turn the liners into a lipstick-like texture on the lips.



A  note: This Glam on range lipsticks have a wide selection of colors ranging from this one ( colorless) to black! Yes goths, you read it right. Almost each brand has a Barely There shade which imparts a natural shade say slightly pinkish in case of Lakme . I expected the colorless stick to impart some color on my lips, but that did not happen. A lipstick without colors is for me a chicken soup without chicken. So, I don't know how to react.



Price:  499 for 4 grams.
Let me dig into the likes and dislikes straightaway. Since it has no color, I cannot comment on the pigmentation. But indeed I can comment on the texture etc.

Likes:
  • The package is nice and classy. By that I mean it looks sleek. The steel colored round body has this no mess kind of feeling to it. I like that neatness.
  • The lipstick itself smells really good. Like a piece of chocolate. It strongly smells of cocoa butter, but not artificial enough to give you nausea. Still, I would suggest you to check this at the store.
  • Stays on the lips for quite some time. I inferred that because I had the wet feeling/wet look on my lips for about 4 hours. Since I really can't see the color, I cannot comment.
Dislikes:
  • No color for this particular shade. What's the point of getting a lipstick which has no color at all? I would rather get a colorless lipbalm at a fraction of the price.
  • Doesn't work like a lip balm either . So doesn't really moisturize to heal chapped lips. But okay to prevent it.

Faces is my recent favorite brand, but I personally feel their Moisture rich lipsticks are way better than these in terms of texture ( don't know about the color) and price as well, even though there is room for improvement for packaging. Moreover, the price is too much. I love Faces for their quality and the right price. But they seem to be entering the price hiking competition  which I am not very cool with.


Overall, I am not really very happy with this one and would neither recommend nor repurchase. I would rather stock on the Moisture Rich Lipsticks and The Go Chic Lipsticks which I love.

Disclaimer: Product sent by the brand for consideration. But my views are honest.

  1. I don't like this one, better buy a lip balm than this.

  3. I have another shade from this range and it is pretty good :) 499 bucks on this colorless lipstick is not at all good deal.. We can manage the same with a ordinary lip balm.

    Honest Review as as usual Nivedita :)

    1. Thank one is glittery I think. The SA was showing it to me when I was looking for some mute colors. I was taken aback. But IMO a glittery shade is not a bad idea. Would make up for highlighting the lips. But then, what are the shimmerstacks for?

    1. Hey, I never said the quality is bad. Rather the texture etc is good. But since it has no color, I really can;t comment how it really fares as a lipstick.
      I haven't checked the colored shades yet. So, it would be very unfair to come to the conclusion of their's being 'bed'
