Faces Ultime Pro Expert Cover Compact : 03 Biege

See it through my Eyes

Recently I have seen a lot of cake and cream style foundations.  If you ask me, I quite like the concept. I own three of them already. Will discuss on them one by one.


This product comes housed in a black glossy paper box with all the product info. The product is housed in a matte black compact case. It is solid, secure and durable and travel appropriate. It has an under side mirror which makes application easy even when travelling. The packaging is well thought and comes with a sponge of its own.  In order to use the sponge wet, the base has little openings to let the sponge dry and keep it smell free. The white sponge tends to get dirty and I have washed it a couple of times.


It has a buttery soft creamy texture all in one face makeup which claims to work as foundation, concelaer and compact. I have combination skin and it didn’t let my skin feel oily or shiny.  On application it dries up and settles on the skin as second skin. I put t over a moisturized face to avoid any dryness and blotchy appearance.  It blends very well and quick on a moist/moisturized skin when compared to a foundation. It gives a matte finish without any oiliness and feels like 2nd skin. I love the no makeup look it gives me. 

Coverage & Staying Power

It is a sheer to medium coverage face makeup; it cannot give you full coverage no matter how much you layer it. The name doesn’t fulfill the full coverage claim. It cannot stand as a concealer, as the coverage is not that satisfactory. I need a separate concealer to cover my dark circles. It stays oil free upto 5 hours after which it becomes a bit oily. If you set it with a separate powder it will be stay matte for longer.

How I Use it

The product has marketed itself as a full cover compact and lives upto the claims just as well. If you treat this as a compact, it is not the usual powder one but a creamy compact. It can be used as a foundation, concelaer and compact. On application with dry sponge, I have noticed a lot of product wastage as the creamy texture sticks to the sponge and gives an uneven streaky finish. I like to use it wet, for easy application and even distribution all over the skin. The best way to use it is with your fingers; I dot it in portions over different parts of face and spread it downwards for evenness.  For air brushed finish it can also be used with a wet sponge on a moist face (sprayed with some face mist like this Kaya mist)
