Faces ULTIME PRO Matte and Starry MATTE Lip Crayon Review
|Faces Ultime Pro Matte and Starry Matte Lip Crayon || Really Rust and Sugar Coated || Review, Swatches, Price in India|
A few weeks back, I got to know about the new launch - Faces matte lip crayons. While the market is full of them, I was intrigued to try these because I have never tried many products from Faces.
About Faces Lip Crayons – I thought they were all the same, but later I came to know that there are two ranges – Matte (pure powdery matte formula) and Starry Matte (with shimmers). I have one from each. Really Rust is a matte lip crayon and Sugar Coated is starry matte.
Packaging – Fat crayon that needs to be sharpened. The crayons are color coded and hence easy to spot in your vanity. The cap is plastic, and I am afraid that it might break soon. Also, the transparent cap gets stained from the color many times and needs to be cleaned.
Price – Rs 799. Sharpener comes free.
|Faces Ultime Pro Matte Lip Crayon Really Rust 07 Review and Swatch|
Faces Ultime Pro Matte Lip Crayon Really Rust – I have a weak spot for orange lip colors, especially burnt oranges and rusts. I love the rusty orange color. The color is highly pigmented and imparts color in just one swipe. The matte formula is light, comfortable and feels like nothing. The stay is good but not strong. It does transfer at times and cannot last a meal. It irregularly fades from the inner sides first. It needs to be reapplied after you drink or eat. The only way to make it last long is not to consume anything.
|Faces Ultime Pro Starry Matte Lip Crayon Sugar Coated 05 Review and Swatch|
Faces Ultime Pro Starry Matte Lip Crayon Sugar Coated – While shimmer is loved by many, they are surely not my cup of tea. The starry formula is same as the matte but because of the shimmers, it does not feel as smooth. But, it is equally comfortable. Sugar Coated is a bright coral pink with gold shimmer. This color itself is very bright, and the gold shimmer adds loudness to it. In the end, the color does not suit my skin tone. When worn as a tint, the chunky gold shimmers are more visible. Unfortunately, my camera was not able to catch the shimmers so, the swatch here almost look flat.
Overall – I am in love with Really Rust. The Ultime Pro Matte formula is highly pigmented, comfortable and the color is my personal favorite. I would have loved it more had it lasted longer. But, the Ultime Pro Starry Matte is not something that I liked. Maybe the shimmer will look great on other colors, but gold shimmer on a very bright color does not find practical use in my life. Also, the price is not low. So, while choosing the shades, please give your clear thoughts to it.
