My Experience with Face of Australia Macaron Sheer Gloss Crayon:

The packaging is simple plastic with twist up mechanism. The body is color coded and hence easy to find in the stash if you have more than one in the same range. The cap does not shut with a click but is tight enough, not to get opened in the pouch. There is no tip sharpener, after the tip gets blunt; it is slightly difficult to draw the edges.

Face of Australia Macaron Sheer Gloss Crayon Review

The texture is very smooth and creamy; hence it glides on lips like dream. Pre exfoliation is necessary as the texture is not forgiving, dry patches show up, if any. The pigmentation could have been a lot better; but it is a sheer collection, so it is not really a con. Minimum two swipes are needed to cover my pigmented lips.

The shade is a simple dark pink, but as it is sheer, it doesn’t look OTT. On the contrary it gives a very polished look to the face. It is a versatile shade and hence can be worn my women of different age groups by either playing it up or down. The is absolutely no shimmer to the shade.


The staying power is very less as it is creamy, glossy and sheer at the same time. It stays on my lips for an hour and half without any lip liner and minimum munching and sipping. With lip liner as base, the shade stays on for about 3-4 hours. After that it starts to fade evenly, but lips remain hydrated for longer.
