Faux is housed in MAC's standard packaging which is this black bullet tube that has a silver line that goes around it. Very functional and professional looking packaging so no qualms on this department. Faux is of satin finish and as MAC describes it, a "muted mauve-pink," which I think is a very good description of this gem right here although obviously, given the different pigmentation of our lips, it is only natural that it is going to show up differently on each and everyone.
One thing I also adore about all MAC lippies is their scent. Some are put off by it, but I kinda prefer my lippies to have a bit of scent to them and so far, I am loving the chocolate/vanilla-ish scent that MAC comes with. I hope they don't ever change it up, ever!
So anyway, for an everyday look, I like to wear Faux with a dash of blush and a bit of smudged eye liner because if worn alone, it looks too simple and overall just colorless. I love how it makes me look so chic and so pretty because it is always in harmony with my blush and does not overpower it in any way. I'd recommend Faux to anyone in a heart beat. I understand that it's quite pricey (ESPECIALLY HERE IN MANILA), but I own a LOT of lipsticks and I am yet to find anything similar to this (at least shade-wise) so yeah, it's unique in its own lovely way.
Faux is definitely worth checking (and shelling) out if you're in the market for a decent MLBB/pinkish nude lipstick. xx
