The Faces moisture rich lipsticks have been around since ages but I only recently tried them. Today I’m reviewing a gorgeous shade from this range ~ Fiery Orange!
Price : Rs 349 (I picked it up at 40% off, haul HERE)
What Faces says about the product :
Creamy lipstick in rich pigmented color.
Faces Moisture Rich lipstick provides rich, opaque color to lips and keeps them soft at the same time.
The formula is infused with Vitamin E to protect and moisturize the lips with every application.
My take on the Product
Faces moisture rich lipsticks come in black plastic packaging with colored ends and a slightly heavy feel to the packaging. I really like the packaging – it feels very sturdy, the swivel mechanism is perfect and the colored ends make it very easy to locate shades.
The lipstick is very soft and buttery smooth in texture, it glides on the lips without any tugging right from the first swipe. It is richly pigmented, single pass gives opaque coverage to the lips. The formula is quite comfortable and decently moisturizing on the lips. It is not the most moisturizing lipstick I’ve tried but it has a nice glossy sheen and a balmy base that fills out the lip lines, giving a smoother appearance to the lips. One great thing about the formula is that despite being buttery rich in texture, it doesn’t move around or get patchy on the lips.
For those who love well pigmented, opaque lipsticks, this would be a great lipstick especially for the winters since it is hydrating. Because it is very buttery in texture, there might be slight bleeding around the corners of the lips during meals etc. Adding some powder/concealer around the lips or using a lip liner would solve that issue. This particular shade stayed for about 4 hours leaving a 50% color stain behind which stayed for another 2 hours. It is not so staining that the pigment seeps into the lip lines which I like. The lipstick has a faint vanilla scent which is not overwhelming or very artificial. Overall, I really like this lipstick and I find it one of the best ones at this price point. Highly recommended!
The shade Fiery Orange is a deep coral red on me, the color is rather difficult to describe – its got a rusty orange tinge, a reddish tinge and at times a bit of berry pink touch as well. Its one of those shades that looks different on different skin tones. I’ve seen it look much pinker on other people (As it appears in the swatch) but on my lips its very warm. Its not bright but its quite vivid. In the tube, I can see a faint pink pearl which looks like a duochrome but it barely translates on the lips. For softer looks, I’d like wearing this as a stain topped with a gloss like Revlon Colorburst lip gloss in Papaya. It looks gorgeous paired with any warm eye shadow and peach/coral blush. If you’d like to try an orange but shy away from full bloodied oranges, try this shade. Its softer than a bright orange and the brown undertone will make it great for duskier skin as well (though it might appear pinker on some people!).
The GOOD about Faces Moisture Rich lipstick Fiery Orange :
- Sturdy, convenient packaging
- Smooth, buttery texture
- Great pigmentation
- Gives a glossy sheen to the lips

The NOT-SO-GOOD about Faces Moisture Rich lipstick Fiery Orange :
- It may bleed a little around the corners since its so buttery in texture
- May melt during summers
Faces Moisture Rich lipstick Fiery Orange is gorgeous dusty reddish coral that would look fabulous on the Indian skin. The formula of this lipstick is luxuriously rich – buttery texture, great pigmentation and hydrating glossy finish. The pigments are not heavily staining and doesn’t settle into the lips lines but there might be little bit of bleeding since the texture is so smooth. Overall, one of the best lipsticks I’ve tried in this price range, its a shame I hadn’t tried these before! Highly recommended!
