Faces Moisture Rich Lipstick- Imperial Purple 04

Hello Beauties,

For a longtime now, I have been on a hunt for that perfect purple color that I'm looking for & unfortunately I still haven't found that one yet. My makeup stash is full of reds, pinks & maroons & fuchsia, but I'm still in awe of the awesome purple colored lipstick that you see on models on magazines & online sites. That shade that I'm reviewing today isn't close to that puple shade that I'm hunting but it's still a pretty color! So here's my take on the  Faces Moisture Rich Lipstick- Imperial Purple 04. I have searched other blogs too to see if all the bloggers have same opinion about this lipstick & almost 90% had written exactly the same.

Product Description by the Company: Faces Moisture Rich Lipstick is an intense crème color enriched with jojoba oil that blends with natural oils to envelop your lips in a superior creamy coat of color that is comfortable and long lasting.

Reasons to adore this:
1. Packaging: The packaging is nice & sturdy. It has this transparent base,makes it easy to identify the shade when you have more than 1 lipstick from the same range.
2. Color- The color is very gorgeous & nicely pigmented, it's a light mauvish pink-purple color with blue undertones. I wear this mostly during the day because it doesn't look OTT.
3. Texture: The lipstick is superbly creamy & moisturising & doesn't make the lips look dry. Please don't expect this to look great on severely chapped lips, I tried this once & the lips looked ugly! It doesn't bleed or feather! Doesn't settle into the fine lines!
4. Fragrance: It has a vanilla smell which isn't too over-whelming & it kind of diminishes within few seconds.

5. Staying Power: The wear time of this lipstick is 4 Hours if one doesn't nosh or has a meal. When I had my food I observed that it gets transferred onto glasses & starts fading & leaves a very little tint.

Reasons to abhor this:
1. Though it might not be a reason to abhor this, but I just like long staying lipsticks, lipsticks that survive meals.

Final Word: This is a gorgeous color lipstick which is very creamy & moisturising, if your are one of those people who don't mind doing touch ups after having meals & want lipsticks to be smooth & creamy , then you should definitely give this a try!
