How are you all doing? I hope you guys are in the pink of health. With the wedding season going on in full swing, I am collecting make-up that stays super long. I made a trip to the mall a few weeks ago and saw these new lip crayons all over the Faces counter. I saw the texture and picked few. The shade for the day is “Midnight rose” which is by far the best lip colour that I have used in my entire life till date. Hop onto know why I loved this so much.

My Experience with Faces Ultime Pro Matte Lip Crayon in 12 Midnight Rose:
The range of Faces Ultime Pro Lip Crayon has some shimmery shades too, but this one belongs to the matte category. Yes, Faces might seem a little more costlier than usual but if you try this out, you wouldn’t mind paying 800 bucks!
Packaging: The packaging comes in maroonish red colour with a black base and a transparent cap. It has the shade name written right over the packaging which makes it super easy to spot. Also, the packaging colour resembles the shade, so it becomes hassle-free to find one if you own a few. It looks like the lip crayons from the other brands but just a little less fat than those. Now the difference in the packaging is that, these have to be sharpened and they don’t have a twisty base. The sharpener came free with these for which I wholeheartedly thank Faces. Yes, there is product wastage but I am always cautious.
Shade: Oh my God, I am in love with this shade! The shade is a superbold and pigmented deep maroon colour with hints of red which add to the boldness. It is like that supermatte maroon shade which the models wear in magazines and hoardings. It looks like the red velvet cake and the pigmentation is unbeatable. Just one swipe and I have the gorgeous maroon shade over my lips. I love the name “Midnight rose” and it is indeed very precise because it is a stunning and a sexy rose apt for evening wear and night too 😛 It actually presents a very classy, confident and a sexy image of the woman wearing this. This shade will surely complement all the skin tones beautifully, and all the age groups be it the young generation or the mature ones.
It will also suit every outfit be it western or ethnic. The shade is one of its kinds and I seriously wouldn’t even want to find a dupe because I feel this is so unique. It instantly brightens up my face and makes me look like a red carpet celeb!
Finish and texture: The finish is supermatte and I am sure the matte lovers are going to fall in love with the finish! The pigmentation is intense and the application is super smooth and creamy. It glides like a dream. The formula is dry but yet I do not get that dry feeling on my lips. It does highlight the chapped lips mildly but nothing very noticeable. Due to the bold pigmentation, it transfers to tissues and glasses but not a lot. The colour transfers but the lips look the same, so hats off to the pigmentation.
Staying power: The staying power is incredible as it stays for more than 10 hours and the pigmentation stays as it is. It might mildly decrease after 6 hours, but the colour stays as it is. It stays no matter how much I eat, sip water or do whatever. The removal part is a little tedious as it needs a powerful makeup remover to come off. It will give you red clown lips but comes off nicely.
Pros of Faces Ultime Pro Matte Lip Crayon in 12 Midnight Rose:
• Super convenient and attractive packaging in the shade colour which makes it easy to spot the shade.
• Accompanied with a sharpener which sharpens it nicely without excessive product wastage.
• The shade “Midnight rose” is one of the sexiest shades that I have ever used; it is a deep maroon with hints of red which raise the hotness quotient.
• It instantly brightens up my face and it will compliment all the skin-tones, age-groups and is suitable for all the occasions too.
• The formula is extremely matte which look super classy and elegant.
• The pigmentation is very intense and just one swipe makes my lips maroon.
• It does not dry up my lips even though it is matte.
• It makes me look like a celebrity, very confident and bold.
• It stays for more than 10 hours no matter what I drink or what I eat, or how many times I eat
Cons of Faces Ultime Pro Matte Lip Crayon in 12 Midnight Rose:
• Transfers a little.
