Hello my beautiful ladies!!
As told in the previous post that I will be reviewing the individual products from my Faces Cosmetics Haul, here I come with the first and my most favorite and recent obsession, the FACES ULTIME PRO MATTE LIP CRAYONS. Faces Cosmetics India has recently launched these Lip Crayons in the Ultime Pro Matte series with 12 attractive and impressive shades.
FACES Cosmetics is a Canadian cosmetic brand spanning heritage over 40 years, which offers an exclusive line of makeup, skincare products and make-up accessories over 300 stunning products in India.
- A collection of lip crayons featuring Timeless Matte and Starry Matte shades with superior color pigment & hydration.
- From beautiful nudes to striking reds to shades of pinks and corals there’s a shade for everyone.
- Dresses up lips in statement shades in matte/starry matte finish with rich, color-bright pigments, while being super comfortable on lips.
PRICE: INR 799 each. Also, got a mono sharper worth Rs.125 free with the lip crayon. And surprise!! I got a duo eye shadow palette- Mystic Blue(who’s review will be up in the blog soon) from Faces as well as a complement. Isn’t that great deal?

I picked up two shades from the Matte range- Midnight Rose and Wrapped Up.
The packaging of these Lip Crayons is just like a color-pencil crayon. It has the shade-color-coded body with black end and silver imprinted details/names and also comes with a transparent cap. These Lip crayons are non-retractable/non-twistable, so they need to be sharpened every now and then. So there is obviously lot of product wastage than usage..right??-this is the no. 1 con of this product.
The texture and formula of the lip crayon is creamy, soft and smooth. If you would have used the Pro Longwear Matte Lipsticks, you would be knowing it. These Lip crayons have almost the same formula. And they are super pigmented and super opaque, especially the Midnight rose. They glide on the lips smoothly and evenly without making the lips dry/patchy or flaky.
Talking about the staying power- the Wrapped Up stayed for a good 3-4 hours on my lips after which it became patchy in the inners of the lips and faded away, while the Midnight Rose stayed on for 7-8 hours even after having meals and all. That’s why Midnight Rose is my whole new obsession.
Here are the swatches of the Lip Crayons-
And here is me wearing the Midnight Rose shade…and OMG I am in so much love with this color. It is so good and perfect shade for this winter season too.
- Soft creamy and smooth texture
- Highly pigmented
- Super Matte finish
- Doesn’t dry up the lips
- Few shades have longer staying power upto 6-8 hours
- Rs799- too Pricey for a pencil/crayon kind of
- Non-retractable – need to sharpen- lot of product wastage
- Few shades have very low staying power
- Most shades are kind of neon-ish colors
