The soft and creamy textured Faces Lip Pencil glides on effortlessly without any tugging or smudging.
I got this for 150 INR at flat 50% sale at Faces.
The Faces Lip Pencils comes in Blackened wooden encased sharpenable pencil packaging which is very convenient & hygienic to use. The end tip of the pencil has small strip coloured in the liner shade making it easy to locate the shades. I caught hold of these beauties during faces flat 50% off sale which I was not aware off & accidently bumped into the counter. At such good discounts these are definitely a steal. I have few other shades which will be reviewed later.
They have very smooth, soft & creamy texture, but not so extremely creamy to be felt gooey on lips. The tip holds itself well without any breakage on lips during application & applies very smoothly without any tugs or pulls. These are highly pigmented but you can always layer up the shade for more dramatic colour pay off. These wear for incredible 7-8 hours (never weared this beyond that) on my lips with slight fading but the tint is so strong that one can hardly say that colour has faded. The formula holds the lips tightly but gets slightly faded during meals & munches. Also are not easily transferable. They are partially moisturising (True red is very drying) on my very dry lips & I cannot wear them alone without a good lipbalm underneath or else they accentuate the dryness of my lips making those lip lines more prominent. Most of the lip liners are drying on my lips & hence I always prefer to layer them up with good moisturizing lipstick or gloss.
Shade: True Red
Like the name itself says this is a ravishing vivid red .The colour defines gorgeous lips & a perfect red flattering skin tones across!. It certainly adds that glamour factor brightening up the whole look with spunk of seductiveness. I like to apply it lightly on my lips & then smudge it for more wearable terms. If you love reds, then this is a must have in your vanity. On me this is very drying (not much as MAC Ruby Woo!) & exaggerates the dryness of my lips. It is very close to MAC Russian Red while Ruby Woo has much stronger blue tones. So if you are looking for good MAC reds close dupes do check out this one.
My Lip swatches doesn’t do justice to the shade. Due to bad lighting my cam was not able to capture the actual intensity. Look for hand swatches to get an accurate idea.
- Hygienic, convenient user friendly packaging.

- Rich pigmentation.

- Very Drying on lips
Faces lip pencils comes in easy to use sharpen able wooden pencil form with smooth & creamy texture. They are highly pigmented & long wearing. The texture of these lip liners is not dry lips friendly & certainly needs some moisturizing medium. The shade true red is a rich vivid red which instantly brightens up the whole look. Unfortunately the shade is very drying on lips as compared to other shades in the range.
