Today this blog is about Faces Ultime Pro Creme Lip crayon. Earlier faces had launched matte lip crayons and I have heard rave reviews about the same. On Amazon.in I found the creme lip crayon and I liked the shades, hence I bought one of them in shade 08 Cherry pop. So let us see the review:
Rs 749 /-
*Dress your lips with a luxurious creamy lipstick
*Special blend of waxes for a rich, iridescent finish
*One Stoke application in truly lush color that lasts four hours
*Ultra sensorial, hydrating formula that is extremely soft and comfortable on the lips
*Non greasy finish makes lips soft & supple
My review: Shade 08 Cherry Pop
The packaging of the Creme crayon from faces is very similar to matte crayons from the same brand. As usual the body of the packaging is color coordinated with the actual shade of the crayon. The manufacturing and ingredients details are given the outer black color cardboard packaging. The inner packaging of the crayon has a sleek body and transparent cap. The crayon is a twist up packaging, hence no need of sharpener.
Overall the packaging is good.
The texture of crayon is very soft and creamy on lips. The lip crayon is very smooth to apply on the lips. The crayon is initially a bit heavy and sticky on lips but after 3-4 minutes the formula becomes very light and non-sticky. Overall I think Faces could have done better with texture.
The pigmentation of the shade is very good and covers the lips fully in single swipe.
The shade no 08 i.e. cherry pop is beautiful pink shade with slight mauve undertones. This pink shade will suit all Indian skin tones and is an ideal day wear kind of shade.
The staying power of these lip crayons is very bad. First of all these lip crayons transfer a lot, by a lot I mean too much. Just after the application, every lipstick in world is transferable, but after some time the lipstick does not transfers much. But this crayon just keeps transferring every wear i.e. on the rim of glass, on spoon, on eatables.....etc. The lip crayon form Incolor which i have reviewed also on my blog, comes half of its price and performs way way better than this faces crayon. If I as a customer buying a lipstick for more than Rs 700 and then it is not lasting on my lips for even an hour, whats the use of the product. Following is the review of Incolor Lip crayon:
Pros and Cons of the Lipstick:
1. Shade is good.
2. Good pigmentation
2. Highly transferable
3. Slightly sticky and heavy on lips
4. Bad performance
5. Almost zero staying power
6. False claims
Staying Power: 0/5
Overall Rating: 2.8/5
This product from Faces is a complete no for me and I would suggest others also not to go for this product. A complete waste of money.
Have a great day, Bye
