Gorgeous lip products never fail to attract makeup junkies. But the story is a bit different for a lip balm person like me. Obvious lip colors do not appeal to me. Instead, I love to stick to brown lip shades or beautiful nudes. So, when I found this Faces Canada Lip Pencil (Sand) in my nearby makeup store, I got elated. I always wanted to try Faces lip pencils and I bought them without thinking twice. Read on to know more about how the lip pencil worked for me.

Faces lip liner comes in a wooden pencil with a tight cap seated on its top. The packaging is hygienic and travel-friendly. The length of the lip pencil is neither too long nor too short. It is just perfect for carrying in the purse. The bottom of the packaging is of the same shade as the lip pencil itself. Hence, it is pretty easy to recognize and locate.
Look And Feel
The texture of Faces Canada Lip Pencil is smooth and creamy. It glides evenly on my lips without the need for any tugging or pulling. But the pencil itself is not that moisturizing, especially if you wear it for an extended period. So, applying a lip balm underneath it is a must for women with dry and chapped lips.
My Take On Faces Canada Lip Pencil (Sand)
I chose the Faces Canada Lip Pencil in the shade ‘Sand’ (Shade No. 035), a beautiful soft brown color with hints of pink in it. This particular shade is going to suit all skin tones perfectly. But, most importantly, if you have a medium skin tone, it will give your lips an authentic nude look.
The lip pencil is highly pigmented, and one swipe of it covers my pigmented lips well. You can line your lips with it and blend the color easily with your fingers or a lip brush. It feels comfortable and lightweight. When applied as a lip color, it looks a bit drying. However, it is not as drying as most other lip liners.
This lip pencil does not contain any shimmer. Instead, it gives a beautiful matte finish after application, which looks completely natural. If I fill my lips with this lip pencil, the color lasts for around 3 hours with light meals in between. And when using a lip liner along with a similar lip shade, the staying power is increased by 2-3 hours.
The best thing about the lip pencil is that it does not smudge at all. It also prevents lipsticks from bleeding and feathering away. Usually, I apply this lip pencil and then top it up with a clear gloss. It looks completely natural on me. All in all, I am in love with the texture and the shade of this lip product.
How To Use
Line your lips with the lip pencil slightly on the outside of your natural lip lines. Then, accentuate your Cupid’s bow with it. You can also fill your lips with this pencil for the base makeup.
