Review and Swatches: FACES Canada Satin Matte Lipstick in shade Jazz Berry Jam

Faces is supposed to be a brand from Canada, and I saw that they have a store in Dufferin Mall [planning to check it out]. Their products are cruelty free and not tested on animals. I think they are more of a hit in India than in Canada. I have tried their Go chic lippies[ not a fav], Satin Matte [Luv Luv] and their moisture rich range [Luv luv] and on the whole I think the range is good. But I have not tried any of their newer products, so may be if I visit Dufferin Mall, I will get something.

About the lipstick – this is a very creamy lippie…    

This is a berry pink shade and to be very honest not very flattering for my skin tone, so I don’t use this much.
However if you have non-pigmented lips or if you have a fairer skin tone, this would be a very lovely lip shade. If you are darker skin toned, I would not suggest this for your pink lippy collection.
Don’t get me wrong – I love berry pinks, but only if they are in glossy format.
When in matte or creamy matte as in this case, they present a very demure muted look which doesn’t exactly brighten an uneven skin tone.

The best way in which I use this is by blotting it twice to give a good color to lips and then adding a bright peachy or red lip gloss to enhance the color. A clear gloss would also do the trick. This is again one of those lipsticks that are creamy enough to be used as a blush.

On the whole, I would recommend this color if you are fair skinned.
