The Face Shop 'Face It' lip crayon - Review, Swatch and Fotd

By Aakriti

Hi ladies,

This is my first ever post on PEL and am quite excited about it. I love makeup although i strongly believe that excess is bad and makeup should enhance your beauty and not overdo it.

So here's my first post on my very favourite product for the month. I would like to introduce a famous Korean brand that's widely available but not very famous called "THE FACE SHOP". The brand offers an array of beautiful shades of what is called a "LIPSTICK PENCIL."

Unlike normal lipsticks, they come in the form of a thick crayon by 
the name of "FACE it ".
Here's my review on 
THE FACE SHOP's Face it shade no.110

What the brand claims :

The FACESHOP brings together the science and the perfection of nature to deliver the best product for your skin.
Price : Rs 300 for 3.8 gms of lip colour. I think this is the cheapest lipcrayon available in the market.
Availability - Available online at "THEFACESHOP" website or local cosmetics stores with the brand franchise. I got it from Elante Mall in Chandigarh.

On the outside :

The crayon has a black sleek yet bold body with a transparent top and bottom roll up. The bottom has the colour same as the lipstick shade. The packaging is very travel friendly... Infact, I am always carrying it in my purse  :-)

On the inside :

This 2.8 g of lipstick pencil is a combination of stylish yet moisturizing formula for the lips. The coverage is mostly opaque with one coat and applies smoothly onto the lips with a nice satiny feel. Because of it's buttery texture, it's best for dry or chapped lips as it does not leave an accentuated look and gives a very smooth feel to the lips. The lipstick is a lovely corally pink colour that would suit almost all complexions, but not too dusky ones. It is like a everyday wear colour that can be worn to work and college too. It gives a tinted, moisturized and slightly glossy look to the lips. Unfortunately,as with sheer lipstick formulas, the lasting power won't be super long, so you might need to reapply a few times throughout the day with meals. Infact, the lasting power would be barely 2 hours. Now I really don't mind this, as the colour is sheer and there is always a lovely tint on your lips. The crayon is so handy that whenever and wherever you want, you can just pop some on - no mirror needed .

Thumbs up for :

- Super cheap with a good quantity.
- Awesome shade.
- Sheer formula that is super good for dry and chapped lips.
- Doesn't accentuate fine lines.
- Great colours for everyday wear.
- Travel friendly packaging.

 Thumbs down for :

- Not easily available.
- Transfers on glasses etc... leaving your marks :-)
- Is very creamy and can melt in summers.

I strongly recommend this lipcrayon from THEFACESHOP as it is a go to product, which is not fussy to apply and can be used for everyday makeup.

PEL Shouts : Welcome aboard Aakriti. This is a very well written review indeed. Doesn't seem like your first one :-) Wow, such a gorgeous colour and that too not expensive at all. And you look so pretty wearing it. This seems like a decent product. Just wish it was widely available too... Btw, I loved your Michael Korrs bag :-)
