Hi lovely ladies!!!
How many of you use lip liners? Honestly speaking, I never used to, simply because I would always find it time consuming. But every time I use a bright lipstick that tends to bleed, I do regret not wearing a lip liner beneath it. So my hunt for a neutral- not so bright lip liner began which can complement my orange lipsticks without altering their shade. That’s how I came across this lip liner from Faces that I will be reviewing today- Faces Lip Pencil in the shade Corallin.
Price: Rs. 250 for 1.2g
Ingredients: Not mentioned on the pencil.
Over 25 shades of kohl-free pencils. These pencils glide on effortlessly without any pulling or smudging. Faces lip pencils provide you with beautiful, even definition, without the worry of your favorite lipstick bleeding or feathering away.
My take on Faces Corallin Lip Pencil:
Faces Lip Pencil comes in a sleek wooden packaging. This non-retractable pencil can easily be sharpened using any sharpner, as the girth of the pencil is that of any standard pencil, so you have no worries of getting an additional sharpner meant only for this pencil. The sharpening form of this pencil, makes it hygienic, but a literal pain in case you are travelling and the tip breaks/gets blunt, and you are not carrying your sharpener along with you. The pencil has a matching black cap and a shade indicated bottom to it, making it easy for spotting the pencil shade in your makeup stash. The shade name is mentioned on the pencil itself in various languages (that I really don’t understand).
Corallin is a neutral peach shade with some brownish undertone to it. It has no shimmer particles in it- which sure is a plus point. It is a lovely shade that can be worn by itself as an everyday office color, or under a bright lipstick without having the fear that it would alter the color of your bright lipstick.
The texture of this lip liner is smooth but not creamy enough to glide on the lips easily. So you definitely require a coat of lip balm under it to reduce the pulling and tugging that you face while applying this on your lips. Since the texture is drying, you need to prep your lips thoroughly before you have this on your lips, otherwise it will make your already dry and flaky lips- look ever drier.
Pigmentation of corallin is good, one swipe does give good amount of color, but due to it not so creamy texture, you cannot really have the color on your lips in one swipe. You need to fill in the color on your lips like how you would do with a coloring pencil.
This lip liner lasts for 4-5 hours by itself but gives a dry look to the lips, so a coat of lip balm or lip gloss on top of it would make it look better. If worn under a lipstick- it increases the wear time of it by 3-4 hours and prevents any bleeding of the lipstick.
Pros of Faces Corallin Lip Pencil:
-Hygienic wooden pencil.
-Standard pencil size that can be sharpned using any normal sharpner.
-Lovely peach shade with a hint of brown- works as a perfect base for bright lipsticks.
-Prevents bleeding of lipstick and increases the wear time of the lipstick.
Cons of Faces Corallin Lip Pencil:
-Need to sharpen-leading to wastage.
-Need to prep the lips prior to application.
-Tugs and pulls on the lips.
IMBB rating: 3.75/5
Overall, Faces Corallin Lip Pencil is a lovely peach color with a hint of brown, that can be worn by itself for a natural look or under a bright lipstick to increase the wear time of the lipstick and prevent it from bleeding. It is an affordable, wooden lip pencil that does an amazing job, so do try, I’m sure you will love it!!!
