Go gold and glam with FaceFront’s Ouro Fino gloss

I’ve been putting together reviews of FaceFront’s newest collection, Lust Quest, over the past week – but I realized that I haven’t quite finished up with their Ouro Fino collection just yet, and well, we can’t have that, now can we?

While I do think the Ouro Fino Color Volume gloss would be better suited to the holidays (simply because it looks so stellar over a red lip), it certainly does hold its own for the spring, as well! Which does make sense, I guess, seeing as it’s a spring release ;) The concept is simple; a healthy dose of gold shimmer suspended in a plush, translucent gloss.

The one thing I’m actually quite surprised at is the price of the Colour Volume line: at $15.50, they’re not exactly cheap as far as lipglosses go, which isn’t something I associate with FaceFront (which, in terms of cost-per-ounce, is usually quite inexpensive). For a shade that’s so dupe-able, I hesitate to recommend it at the price, but the formula is good – lovely and non-sticky, with a light vanilla scent that’s more “fresh baked goods” than “cheap scent molecules.”

The verdict?

At the cost, and with the complete lack of opacity, I wouldn’t go recommending this one to everyone I see – but I do love the effect this gives when layered, and I the formula’s pretty good, to boot. I would love to see a Color Volume gloss without the shimmer (and with medium to opaque colour), though – I can only imagine how gorgeous that would be!

For a budget version, try… Sephora Super Shimmer Lip Gloss in Gold and Glow, Annabelle Le Gloss Star Lip Shine in Électrique, or Philosophy Lip Shine in Vanilla Birthday Cake.
