Product Purchased by IMBB
This lip crayon along with 2 eye pencils were my first IMBB sponsored product purchase. I was too excited to review them and wanted to do that in the first week of October. But first I damaged my camera and then the laptop followed. When I got them both back, my skin gave up. I don’t know what went wrong, but I had a bad outburst of pimples, rashes and dry patches. My skin is still recovering, so if you see a few small bumps here and there in the swatches, please forgive me. Finally, I have convinced myself to review all the products and here is the first one. Lip crayons are fast gaining popularity in the makeup world and from high-end brands to the drugstore ones, every brand is having at least one lip crayon range. Faces cosmetics released a matte lip crayon earlier. And now they have it in the creamy formula. To know how this creamy lip crayon is, read the detailed review here.

My Experience with Faces Ultime Pro Creme Lip Crayon – Cherrypop 08:
Packaging: The lip crayon comes in a black box, with the shade name and colour mentioned at one end of the box. So, if you have more than one of these and store them in a box, you can find out the one you need easily. The fat crayon sticks look cute and girly. It looks like the Clinique chubby sticks. The body of the crayon is colour coded. It is retractable, which is definitely better than the sharpable matte version. A tight transparent cap protects the bullet. It is super easy to use and you can definitely keep it in your bag while travelling.
Shade, pigmentation and finish: This shade is a very beautiful berry pink shade. This will look good on any skin-tone. It will be a perfect choice for youngsters for the winter. The vibrant colour is also great for the wedding party looks, where it is all about bright, happy colours. The pigmentation is intense. I have checked the swatches for the other shades from this range and I think this one is the most pigmented shade. I have super pigmented lips and it evens out the lips in just one swipe.
Still, if you have pigmented lips, it is always better to apply some foundation and dab some powder on the lips, which helps to hide the pigmentation to some extent, give even colour to both the lips and allows the lip colour to glide easily. For the swatches also, I did the same. The creamy texture glides easily and evenly on the lips. After some time, it settles down to a semi-matte yet creamy finish. Due to the creamy texture of this thick stick, precise application is a problem at times. You can use a lip brush to fix the corners and lip lines and get a perfect finish. In the swatches, I have not used any lip liner or brush.
Staying power: It generally stays for 4-5 hours after which it fades out. If you miss the lipliner, it may bleed after the first 2 hours. So, a lipliner is a must, or you can blot out the excess creaminess with a blotting paper.
Due to its super creamy texture, it transfers a lot and literally vanishes, once you have a cup of coffee. The faded lipstick that stays back, clings on to the dry patches here and there. So, once it fades away, remove it all with a tissue and reapply a fresh coat, which will give a perfect even look again.
