Continuing my journey with eye shadow sticks, here is one more new entrée to the beauty world, Ultime Pro Eye Shadow Crayons by Faces Cosmetics. Here is the review on the shade Dancing Queen.
Price – Rs 599/-
My Experience with Faces Ultime Pro Dancing Queen Eyeshadow Crayon:
These shadow crayons by faces are similar to the lip pencils. These are to be sharpened unlike the twist up ones by Chambor/Colorbar. The cap is transparent and does not shut with a click. The body is color coded and has the shade name mentioned on the body with other details. Other than the fear of the cap getting opened, it is an okay packaging.
The texture is smooth and glides on without any tugging or pulling of the lids. This shade is pigmented but it could have been better. To get the full-on shade you have to apply at least 2 swipes. Though there are shimmers in the shade yet it does not feel gritty on the eyes. The texture allows initial smudging with brush/finger tips. But after settling down, the shade does not move or smudge, which is great.
It is a perfect party wear shade. A darkened taupe shade with golden shimmers is sure to make your eyes do the talking when sported at parties and weddings. Pairing it with warm shades of lip color would totally up the whole makeup look. This is definitely not an everyday shade and to be kept for special outings and parties.
The staying power varies from 5-6 hours without fading or smudging. With a primer beneath the staying power would definitely improve, I believe. The only problem I have with this shade is that the shimmers stay back after removing the shadow, which is difficult to get rid of.
