Faces Ultime Pro Illuminating & Bronzing Powder Review, Swatches, Price & Buy Online India
There are hardly any options when it comes to affordable highlighters and bronzers in India so it’s good to see a brand like Faces trying to bridge the gap a bit. They recently launched their Faces Utime Pro Illuminating Powder & Bronzer which are perfect for the Indian skintone. Some have even compared the illuminating powder to the cult favorite Becca Champagne Pop. Read on for the detailed review and swatches.

The new Faces Ultime Pro Illuminating Powder is packaged in a huge pan packaging with a clear lid. The pan comes in a black cardboard box which mentions all the necessary details like the product claims, date of expiry etc. The packaging looks very high-end and is travel friendly. However, it does not come with a mirror or applicator which I don’t mind as the latter is rarely of good quality.
Texture & Shade
The Faces Highlighter has a very finely milled texture which blends well. It does kick up some product in the pan during application as it has a soft texture. It is a gold-champagne shade which is perfect for the warm Indian skintone. The Faces Illuminating Highlighter is not too cool toned nor too warm to look OTT on lighter skintones. It does contain very fine shimmer which lends a beautiful sheen once applied.
Pigmentation & Staying Power
Faces Ultime Pro Illuminating Powder is well pigmented and gives a nice glow in a swipe or 2. The pigmentation needs to be built up for an intense highlight which the youtubers have made so popular. It’s subtle enough to be used during the day and perfect for parties as well due to the buildable finish. The highlighter usually stays put for around 5 hours on me.
Overall, the Faces Illuminating Powder is worth every penny. Not only is the highlighter decently priced but you also get a huge quantity. I would love to see the brand add a few more shades to the range for more variety.

Packaging & Texture
Just like the highlighter, the Faces Ultime Pro Bronzer too comes in a similar packaging with a pan casing and a clear lid. It has a very soft and finely milled texture which blends easily. The bronzer has a satin finish.
Shade, Pigmentation & Staying Power
Unlike most bronzers, this isn’t orange toned and looks very natural. It has a beautiful sheen which perks up the complexion. I like my bronzers with a glow or shimmer and I just don’t get the point of matte bronzers. You might as well apply a contouring powder if matte’s your thing. The Faces Ultime Pro Bronzer is perfect for lighter to medium skin tones and does not look muddy once applied.
The color will not show up well on deeper complexions so I’m hoping they add a darker shade soon. I get an average wear time of about 5-6 hours which is pretty decent. If you’re looking for an affordable bronzer in India then this is your best bet.
Overall, I’m very impressed with the new cheek launches by Faces. They are high quality products which perfectly flatter the Indian skintone. With good pigmentation and decent staying power, the Faces highlighter & bronzer are totally worth buying!
