Skin-tone: fair to medium
Faces launched their new lip crayons in a cream formula recently after their really impressive matte lip crayon range. I picked up 3 shades to review for you guys and here is one of the best shades from the range called Mocha-Licious. See how it looks on me.
Price: Rs 749
A collection of 10 retractable Crème Lip Crayons that are rich, creamy and moisturizing. The high pigment of these lip crayons will provide a creamy finish that does not dry up the lips. These are long lasting, velvety soft and glides onto the lips, providing them full coverage.
From beautiful nudes to striking reds to shades of pinks and corals & warms oranges there’s a shade for everyone.
My Experience with Faces 05 Mocha-Licious Ultime Pro Creme Lip Crayon:
Packaging: These lip crayons come in their basic signature style black box with the shade name written over it. The lip crayons are fat and look exactly like chubby sticks. They look cuter than the slim matte one. The packaging is colour-coded, which makes it very easy for me to spot the needed shades. I really love that Faces did a research and made this crayon in a retractable form, unlike the matte ones that have to be sharpened. The crayon has a tight cap which protects the bullet. The crayons are very handy and super easy to use. Yes, these are a bit expensive if you compare to the other brands, but the quality is equally good too.
Shade, pigmentation and finish: The shade “Mocha-Licious” is a super gorgeous nude shades with a brown touch. It is like the colour of a choco mousse – not very nude and not very brown either, it is a perfect mix of both. This is one of the best MLBB shades so far that I have used. It is one amazing nude shade for the Indian skin-tone that will not wash you out. It makes my face look simple yet sophisticated.
A very wearable shade for day and evening wear and any age group too. The pigmentation is just amazing. Just one swipe and the entire colour get deposited on my lips. The pigmentation is truly awesome and I get bright lips in seconds. The consistency is very creamy and glides very smoothly on my lips. Initially, it stays creamy but then it settles to a creamy, semi-matte finish.
Staying power: The staying power is great as it stays for around 4-5 hours on my lips. It stays creamy for the initial hours and then gets a bit drying after 2-3 hours. It transfers a lot and that was expected so no issues. After 3 hours or so or probably after meals, it clings to the chapped areas on my lips and makes them more visible. So a re-application will not look good; all you have to do is remove it and then re-apply it. But, overall, these lip crayons are highly recommended!
