I have recently fallen in love with eyeshadow crayons. They are easy to use and they last really long. So, I picked up a few eyeshadow crayons by Faces. I am going to talk about the shade ‘Uptown Girl’ today and it is a very unique shade which I really like. Read on for more details.

My Experience with Faces Ultime Pro Eyeshadow Crayon Uptown Girl:
The eyeshadow crayon comes in a color-coded pink packaging with a clear cap. The color-coded pencil makes it easy to identify. The cap is tight, but still there is a risk factor with the cap, otherwise it is easy to carry around. It is a sharpenable pencil, but the company doesn’t provide any sharpener with it. I don’t understand why such expensive products don’t come with a sharpener. It becomes really messy when I have to use the same sharpener for different shades. But the pencil is quite strong and a lot of product doesn’t get wasted when I sharpen the pencil.
Faces eyeshadow crayon comes in 6 different shades and this ‘Uptown Girl’ is a very unique pink shade with a hint of coral. I really like this beautiful pink shade. It has some golden glitters in it which make it a sparkling eye shadow. I love to use this shade as my inner corner highlighter or on my lids to create a 3D look. It is a popping shade that makes the eyes look attractive. The shade is amazingly pigmented and needs only one swipe for the true color to show up. But this shade might look a little odd on dark skin tones. And the shade is not everyone’s cup of tea.
The crayon has a super smooth, creamy texture that glides on my lids without any tugging and the application is perfectly even. It blends easily with a brush or fingers. But it dries out within a few minutes so you need to work quickly before it settles down.
Once it settles down, it doesn’t smudge throughout the day. The formula feels a light on the lids and I can build the color up. The shadow doesn’t look patchy or make the eyelids dry. It keeps the lids soft. I really like the texture of this shadow. I can use it easily on my lower lash line and it doesn’t transfer. It has never irritated my eyes either.
It is totally a smudge-proof and waterproof crayon shadow which actually stays all day long. Without a primer, it stays on my eyes for more than 6 hours and it never settles into the fine lines and doesn’t crease at all. This particular shade needs more efforts to get removed, especially the golden shimmer. I need a good oil based remover to remove it.
I love the quality of this crayon shadow. I am so impressed with the pigmentation. I have never used such a poppy pink shade before this one. So, I am really enjoying this new shade and am super excited to create different looks with it.
