Giving Colorbar a break for a while, today I have this lip liner from Faces to review for you all. I had picked 3 shades from the range and this is the second one in the series. The shade that I am reviewing today is called “Plump Kiss” and as you can see, it is a plum shade. Read on to know more about this shade 🙂
Rs. 399/- for 1.14 gm.
My Experience with Faces Plump Kiss Lip Contour:
The packaging is nothing extraordinary that would need any description. It is a simple wooden pencil which needs to be sharpened. The lid is transparent plastic and fits on well. I hope it stays like this till I use it up as there is no click shut system to it. The body of the pencil is of the same color family, which makes spotting it easy. The shade name and dates are mentioned on the body as silver imprints.
The texture is smooth and a bit crumbly smooth initially, but after a few uses, the pencil is smooth and easy to use. I would say that in spite of being a wooden pencil, the texture is pretty smooth and easy to apply. It does not tug or pull the lips on application. But again, you cannot wear it like a lip color as it is dry and uncomfortable even for normal lips.
I am sure you have seen some lipsticks in bullets and wondered “how can I wear it?”; but on application, they are pretty on the lips, however, in this case, it was just the opposite. The shade did not look scary by itself, but on my lips, it was something I did not want to show you. It is a very dark pigmented plum shade with violet undertones and I just could not look at myself wearing this, but for the sake of the review, I have attached a lip swatch picture; please do not judge me 😛 (have applied a wee bit transparent gloss on top).
The staying power ranges from 5-6 hours with minimal fading, depending on your fluid and food intake. It does not transfer when applied without a balm or gloss; but it is hardly possible to wear it so. You have to take the help of a balm or gloss if you are keen on wearing this shade at all.
I would suggest, put in a few extra bucks and get the Colorbar lip definer; that is smoother and you get a sharpener along with it, which makes it more handy compared to this. Though these two products belong to different ranges, I had to do this comparison for you to judge better. Also, there are more shades in Colorbar than Faces lip contour range, but if you do not wish to shell out much for a lip liner, you can try this one out.
Pros of Faces Plump Kiss Lip Contour:

Would I Repurchase Faces Plump Kiss Lip Contour?
Umm….no to both, as I prefer Colorbar lip definers over this any day. If you are on budget, give these a try, otherwise steer clear.
