My Experience With Faces Ultime Pro Velvet Matte Lipstick #11 I Do:
Packaging: The lipstick is enclosed in a sturdy cardboard box which has every information written on it. The lipstick has a sleek matte black and silver casing with the regular twist up function. The bullet is well designed to precisely apply on the lips with an ease. The lipstick shade is written on the base with a color-coded sticker. It is quite a lightweight one compared to the MAC ones and travel-friendly as well.
Shade: The shade I Do is a beautiful dusty rosy/tea rose pink with very faint brown undertones and that is why it compliments the fair to medium Indian complexions so well. The color even has a slight bright side (which prevents it from looking neutral) yet looks subtle and beautiful at the same time. I don't think the color has any dupes available (though MAC Mehr is slightly close but not a dupe). I regularly wear this color for college as well as office now and I love how a nice flush of color it gives to my lips. It has a vanilla scent, pretty similar one to MAC lipsticks but it fades off after application.
Texture: The texture of the lipstick is creamy but not a melting creamy one. It glides smoothly on the lips and gives a beautiful fuller look (sort of Kylie's lip color) when used with a lip liner underneath. The lipstick is sure a hydrating one but you need to prep to lip and scrub well before application as it looks patchy on dry lips. I wouldn't complain much because every matte lipstick needs preparation. Once applied on prepped lips, it goes on for long and doesn't dry out the lips. The finish is powder matte yet doesn't accentuate on fine lines.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is what I love the most in matte lipsticks and this is an awesome one. With a single swipe, it gives proper color pay off and with a second layer, it seals off every layer of discoloration and defines the lips gorgeously. It does transfer a little but can be controlled with a translucent powder.

Diva Likes Rating:
Ultime Pro Velvet Matte range has only fewer colors but every color is a beautiful one. Moreover, the formula is so good that it will be my second choice after MAC matte range. The color as well as the texture is surely worth a try and highly recommended for everyone.
