Over the past few years, Too Faced have rocketed into commercial success, opening in Debenhams stores around the country and taking the Instagram world by storm. Is it possible to scroll down your feed without seeing the Sweet Peach palette? Thought not.
Their hit products such as the Born This Way Foundation, Chocolate Bar palette and Better Than Sex mascara are cult favourites, being loved by beauty Gurus online. Their Sweet Peach palette sold out in minutes, so much so that they brought out a full collection to coincide with it. Rightly so too, it’s a beautiful palette and smells divine.
There’s always room in my makeup collection for more lipstick, even if it is another pink-nude. Too Faced are a brand that I really enjoy, mainly because their products and packaging are stunning. Filled with pretty pinks, peaches and hearts, they are the ultimate girly brand and I LOVE them for it.
I’ve had my eye on the La Creme collection for a while now, they’re full of beautiful shades. During the run up to Christmas, they had an offer on – half price on all La Creme lipsticks. So naturally, I got two. It was difficult to pick which shades I wanted as they’re all beautiful but in the end I settled for ‘Spice Spice Baby’ and ‘Naked Dolly’. Two shades I will wear a lot but that are very different.
The packaging for these lipsticks is stunning. A gorgeous golden casing that is sleek and classic. The lid is sturdy and won’t fall off in your handbag either, which is very important. The quality of the packaging is spot on, they’ve obviously put a lot of thought into that. Even with the box that they come in (which I can’t bring myself to throw away). In their signature pastel pink shade, with beautiful detailing.
Too Faced describe these lipsticks as ‘a completely unique, super-luxe combination of creamy colour and intense hydration for unprecedented ultra-comfortable wear.’ That I can absolutely agree with. If you’re looking for a creamy and hydrating lipstick, look no further. The lipsticks aren’t long lasting like liquid lipsticks are, but they are much more comfortable to wear which I prefer. I’d rather re-apply a lipstick than wear a crumbling mess on my lips, which is how most liquid lipsticks turn out on me if I wear them daily.
The formula of these lipsticks is extremely buttery and soft, they feel like lip balm. I can’t stop rubbing my lips together when I wear them as they feel so soft and hydrated. They are pigmented but they are also rather sheer. They will last for about an hour on my lips before I have to reapply. Take that with a pinch of salt though because I struggle to keep anything on my lips for longer than an hour. Even liquid lipsticks.
I do prefer to wear these with a lip liner to ensure that the colour has a base to stick onto and I get the most pigmentation out of the lip colour. In general I tend to always wear a lip liner as I like to slightly overdraw my lips and change the shape of them. You can see in the lip swatches below that they look much better with the liner but can most definitely be left on their own. I have quite pigmented natural lips, so Naked Dolly absolutely looks best with a base to go on smoother and a more even application. For Spice Spice Baby I used Mac’s ‘Spice’ lip liner and for Naked Dolly I used Mac’s ‘Oh Honey’ lip liner. They go very well together!
Overall I love these lipsticks, they give the hydration and splash of colour that I had in mind when I bought them. They’re beautiful and would make a gorgeous present for anyone. You can find them over at Selfridges online HERE and Debenhams HERE.
I’d really like to try some more products from Too Faced. Their Sweet Peach collection (Peach Fuzz lip oil is on my list particularly!), their blushes, Born This Way foundation and their Melted lipsticks. I imagine you’ll be seeing a lot more of Too Faced on my blog. A beautiful brand with some beautiful products. What would you like to try from their line? Let me know in the comments.
