I was on a vacation for a pretty long time all by myself! I wanted to spend some time in solitude after a series of unfortunate events that happened to me! 😛 Well, so before going on the vacation, I went shopping and bought myself a lot of cosmetics. So, here’s one of those, Faces Lip Pencil in Coral Red.
My Take on Faces Cosmetics Lip Pencil – Coral Red:
Coral Red is an absolutely stunning shade with a lot of orange undertones. Dusky tones will seriously rock this shade. I love the way it brightens up the face. It dominates my entire look, so I make sure I keep my outfit and makeup subtle when I wear this. No bronzer, no highlighter, just a hint of MAC Peaches Blush and some dark-kohl to fill the eyes, some foundation of course, and I am done!
I am not really happy with the texture of the lip pencil. It is not too creamy or smooth, but you can adjust to the texture. It has a decent pigmentation and the staying power is for about 4-5 hours.
The bad part of it is that it dries out on the lips and it accentuates the lip lines. So, it becomes almost impossible for me to wear this without a lip balm/gloss. That means I cannot go “matte” with this shade really. I am a “matte” lover and hence I have always preferred lip pencils over creamy lipsticks, but this has disappointed me quite a bit.
The packaging as you can see is quite sleek and nice. It has a colored bottom, so I can easily pick it from my stack of lip pencils. From a brand like Faces, I expect more quality from the product, though the pencil is not highly priced when compared to most lip pencils available in the market.
Pros of Faces Cosmetics Lip Pencil – Coral Red:
- Absolutely stunning shade.
- Not overly priced.
- Over 25 shades available in this range.
- Decent pigmentation.
Cons of Faces Cosmetics Lip Pencil – Coral Red:
- Dries out on the lips and accentuates fine lines.
- Texture is not too creamy and soft.
- Has to be worn with a lip gloss/balm.
Here’s my lip swatch. I topped it with The Body Shop Hi-Shine Lip Treatment 01 Go Naked (Lily Cole collection).
You will love how the shade will look on yourself, it adds life to the face. The texture, quality and staying power are things that make me wish I didn’t get this, but you could still buy this if you are a great fan of the shade. It can be skipped otherwise!
Thank you all for reading! Stay beautiful!
