I picked up two more shades from the Ultime Pro range of eyeshadow crayons; reviewed the shades She’s Got D Look and Dancing Queen. Here is the review on the shade Staying Alive.
Price – Rs 599/-
My Experience with Faces Ultime Pro Staying Alive 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 super pigmented. One swipe gives enough color on the lid. This shade has micro shimmers to it which gives a lovely sheen to it. 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 gorgeous purple that can be worn as a liner and shadow as well. I would say it is a very wearable shade, as it does not look OTT. There are micro shimmers and hence is a great option for parties and weddings.
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.
Pros of Faces Ultime Pro Staying Alive Eyeshadow Crayon:
• Gorgeous shade.
• Does not smudge.
• Stays long.
Cons of Faces Ultime Pro Staying Alive Eyeshadow Crayon:
IMBB Rating – 4.25/5
