Faces Cosmetics Lip Pencil in Sand - Review, Swatch and LOTD

Hey girls,

A nice n*de brown lip liner is a must have in every girl’s kitty. When you are in doubt regarding office makeup, just use n*de lip liner topped with clear gloss or your favorite lip balm. You are good to go.

Faces Cosmetics Lip Pencil in Sand


Today, I am going to review my current favorite n*de brown lip liner from Faces cosmetics.
Shade name: Sand.

Price: INR. 299/- for 1.2g
Review

It is a black pencil with a color coded end. The ingredients list and the shade name are engraved in silver lettering. The cap fits tight. I don’t think it will come off and create a mess in your handbag.

The shade is a light beige-brown. It looks extremely flattering and is a perfect MLBB shade for the medium skin toned.

The texture of the lip liner is creamy and little waxy. Application is easy with no tugging and pulling. But as it is a lip liner, we cannot expect much in the moisturization department. It is not extremely drying.

It looks very pretty by itself and acts as an excellent base. Due to the creamy wax-like, it holds lipsticks in place and prevents feathering. It increases the staying power of the lipsticks considerably.

On its own, it has an amazing staying power of almost 6 hours and survives snacks and drinks.

Though it does not feel uncomfortable, sticky or heavy, it makes its presence felt on my lips due to its waxy texture.

It has a mild spicy fragrance that vanishes soon after application. Some people might prefer those twist-up pencils but i like the ones that can be sharpened as i can achieve more precise application. 

I did not notice any excessive product wastage while sharpening this pencil.
