My Experience with Faces Ultime Pro Red Velvet Crème Lip Crayon:
Let’s begin the review with the packaging of the product. The lip crayon, comes housed in a regular black colored cardboard packaging. This outer carton, contains almost each & every detail about the product. The crayon has a color-coded body with a matte finish. The color-coded body makes it easy to spot in makeup stash. These are the jumbo retractable crayons, that does not require any sharpening and quite easy to use. The crayon has a clear cap, that needs to be shut tightly, else it may come off while carrying around. The crayon has a sticker at its base, that indicates the shade name, shade no, shelf life, etc. Overall, the packaging is decent & travel friendly.
The shade “Red Velvet”, is a bright red shade with some cooler undertones. The shade is hot and bold. So, it is definitely not an everyday shade, but it is an amazing choice for the coming festive season. The lip color sets to a lovely satiny finish. These lip crayons are amazingly pigmented. Just two swipes are required to impart that opaque coverage.
It perfectly hides those pigmented lips and gives a smoother finish. The lipstick is totally tasteless or odourless.
The texture of the lip crayon is smooth and creamy. It glides effortlessly on the lips, without any dragging. The lip crayon feels very comfortable on the lips even after layering. The texture is not thick and waxy. It never feels heavy on the lips. But due to its creaminess, it has the tendency to transfer a lot.
The color never clings to the dry patches of the lips and looks so even. The color stays smooth and does not get patchy. The lip color never settles into the fine lines of the lips. The formula of this lip crayon is very moisturizing. It never dries out the lips. It keeps my lips healthy and nourished for long. The formula has some sort of hydrating properties that keeps my lip healthy. The color smudges a little after a meal from the outer corners of the lips. The lip crayon creases a lot if a lot of layering is done.
The staying power of this crayon is decent. It stays for some 5-6 hours on my lips easily. I had a full meal with this lip color on my lips and the red color was still there on my lips. Removing these crayons is pretty easy. It never stains the lips.
Overall, these crayons deliver great quality & finish.
