The latest fad in makeup , CRAYONS , have take over the beauty world like a storm. And I, for once , ain’t complaining. These chubby little things make your life so much easier for a lot of reasons, the most important of which is their compact form.
The latest to join the league is one of my favorite drugstore brands , FACES. Faces Cosmetics had come up with the crayons in two varieties, the MATTE LIP CRAYON and the STARRY MATTE LIP CRAYON. Today I am going to review two of the MATTE LIP CRAYONS viz REALLY RUST & MIDNIGHT ROSE
Price : Rs 799 each
Packaging: The MATTE LIP CRAYONS come in simple, compact and sharpenable form. A sharpener is provided with each individual lip crayon and that itself makes things so much easy. I agree that sharpenable varieties of rayons lead to some product wastage, but in my opinion I like sharpenable kinds because you can get a fine tip every time, you use the product ,to reach the corners of the mouth that a blunt tip can’t reach.
Shade: Really Rust is a beautiful shade of Burnt Orange, the kinds that brighten up your complexion and are especially flattering on warm Indian Skin. Midnight Rose is the much coveted and mostly “Out Of Stock” shade for the sheer gorgeousness of the color. I can’t imagine it NOT working on any skintone, from the palest pink tones milky whites to the warm honey colored skintones. Faces usually designs its color palette especially based on Indian Skin and shows through their shades selection across various color makeup products , including lip products.
Texture and Pigmentation : The lip crayons are super smooth to apply and pack opaque color in a soft gentle swipe. You wouldn’t need to swipe over a second time, they’re that pigmented. The color covers all kinds of lip pigmentation in single swipe.
Finish: The crayons feel light (since its only a single colour saturated swipe!) and settle into a satin matte finish. In my case, Really Rust settled into a more matte finish as compared to Midnight Rose .
Staying Ability : The lip crayons easily last for as long as 8 hours and leave behind a stain so as to never leave your lips bare. After an extremely oily meal, you might wat to do a touchup though!
Overall, I totally recommend these crayons because if you’re the kind who likes to do makeup on the go, you can pack in one or few of these and you’re set. Theses are faily simple to use and the crayon shape eliminates the need of a lip liner and the matte texture makes it really long-lasting without any discomfort that matte lip colors generally tend to have. A little lasts a long way, and although I have used these two several times until now, I haven’t yet had to sharpen them.
