REVIEW: Faces Long Wear Pencil In Dark Green


Faces Long Wear Pencil In Dark Green

No Shimmer... No Glitter...
Post By: Marianne

Hey everyone!
I’m here again with a review of one of my all time favourite products.
I love coloured eye pencils. They are subtle enough to not attract unwanted stares (which I hate!), yet eye-catching enough to earn you a few compliments from friends. They are in fact the only makeup I wear to university (apart from kajal, compact powder and lip balm...but well, you can’t count those as makeup, right? :D). And Faces Long wear eye pencils are perfect for those mornings when I’m getting ready in a rush!

The pencil comes with a coloured cap and end to match the shade. It has a soft and creamy texture and glides on super smoothly...no tugging at our eyelids. It is amazingly pigmented...one swipe and you are sorted! It sets quite fast after you apply it, but not so fast you’d have to be a ninja if you want to go for a smudged look. It is, however, completely smudge proof after it sets. It is waterproof too...washing your face isn’t going to make your liner vanish, unless maybe if you rub your eyes really hard while wet. True to claims, it is really long wear – I line my oily eyelids at 8.30 in the morning, and it is still there at 6.30 when I come back home, albeit with slight fading in the corners. For such a long wearing product, you would think you’d have to struggle to get it off your skin – but no, it gets removed in a jiffy with baby oil, my staple makeup remover. Sharpening the pencil with my Lakme sharpener didn’t present any problems.

A word of caution, though – be careful not to exert too much pressure while using this pencil. Once when I was opening the cap of a brand new brown one, it broke the tip right off (my reaction? I burst into tears...my mom looked at me like I was crazy!).
The shade Dark Green is a matte green shade. I was originally planning to get Forest Green (a beautiful shimmery green) but got this one in a mix-up. It was a bit of a disappointment because the shade is kind of flat and can look a bit dull sometimes. Nevertheless, I find myself using it often and quite like it. But I’m still going to pick up Forest Green when I get a chance to.

Yay! –
  1. ·       Easy to locate in a stash of products
  2. ·       Soft texture, easy to apply
  3. ·       Smudge-proof, waterproof
  4. ·       Well pigmented
  5. ·       Stays on and on!
  6. ·       Sharpens fairly easily
Umm... –
  1. ·       A bit of product wastage while sharpening (inevitable with pencils, really)
  2. ·       Soft texture (a pro while applying, but a con when the tip breaks with pressure)
How big a dent will it make in the wallet?
Faces eye pencils were priced very affordably at INR 249. Recently, the price was hiked to INR 349 (now why did you have to go and do that, Faces?). I was in a store a couple of weeks back and they were still selling it for 250 bucks. I checked a few online shopping websites, and some of them are retailing these pencils for 350 rupees, while some are still retailing them at the old price.

Will I repurchase?
YES! Planning to get more shades.

Recommendation –
Recommended to all of you. With the price being hiked, now may be the best time to grab this baby in your favourite shades. Do give it a try; you’ll definitely like it!

  1. I have the brown one from this range & I totally agree with you. These are so creamy and easy to use. Much better than Lakmé 9-5 eyeliner pencils. Eek! Never going back to those again :O

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...




Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
