Faces Glam on Eye-shadow Duo in Smoky Look 14

Faces Glam on Eye-shadow Duo in Smoky Look 14

In case you have been wondering if I have vanished, no, I have not. This week, it has been raining in Kolkata. Every evening, it would just start out of nothing and come down as a heavy downpour. I got caught up, twice and I'm now down with fever. But that does not mean this space should stop. Does it?
So, I'm here with a review. Faces had won me over with their lipsticks, blushes and their single eye shadows. Now it's turn for their eye shadow duo in shade Smokey Look.


It's a duo as you can see and comes in a sleek, nice to feel box. It has an inbuilt mirror which I find quite handy. The applicators provided are good and does a pretty job. I still prefer my brushes.




My experience: Like other Faces shadows, the eye shadows duo is soft and very pigmented. The grey has a kind of bluish tinge to it ( or is it me?) and the blue unlike what it looks like in the pan, has a kind of smoked effect on my lids. On fairer complexion, I think it might show up like what it is. ( EOTD coming up as soon as I get better).
The best thing I liked was that the colors are coordinated in such a way, just spread the lighter on the inner half of the lid and the darker on the outer half, blend the seams and at the sockets, it gives a beautiful smokey effect. What can get easier than this? Actually, I feel most brands do this, that's why I prefer buying the trios or quads or duos, rather than a big whole palette. I don't have to think too hard on the shades then. ( I know I'm lazy).

So, boiling down everything
Price: 399 INR
Shade: Smoky Look.  A few other duos are also available


Likes:
  • A handy duo. The colors are coordinated so that, you won't have to tax your brain thinking about the right shades.
  • The package is sleek and nice.But tends to become scratched.
  • The shadows are soft.
  • Decently pigmented.
  • The applicator does a good job and the mirror is quite handy.
  • No significant fall outs. \Can be buit up
  • Stays put for quite a long time

    What did not work for me?
    • The only thing price. Faces has much better options at much reasonable price and there is no compromise on the quality. When I review their Go-Chic eye palette, you'd see what I mean. Even for about a hundred bucks more, you can get the I-shine palette which comes in four shades. For the quality which in my opinion doesn't vary much, perhaps, the others fared even better, I won't say this is the best option you have. 
    But yes, if you love the shades, you can give these a try. You would not feel cheated. So, I cannot say this is 'bad'. I would only point out that there are better options from the same brand.

    Do I recommend? I am at a loss. Kindly go through the post carefully and make our own decision :)

    Have a great day!

    The product was sent to me by the brand for consideration. But that has not affected my opinion.

    12. Hey, first of all - Get well soon!

      Secondly, I'm yet to try a Faces eyeshadow. I don't if the testers I try are faulty or something - but I just don't like the texture of these when I try them..
