Too Faced Cosmetics has stolen my heart and my wallet with their pretty, feminine, Haute Chocolate Collection. The Sweethearts blushes (reviewed here) bring the most beautiful glow to the face; not glittery, not powdery just a lovely lit form within radiance in pinks and peaches. The Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Palette (reviewed here) really IS ALL THAT and a box of chocolates–the shadows even smell like cocoa!! This palette is going to make my list of Top Beauty Products for 2014, I can tell already. And how darling is the Candy Bar Makeup Palette with an adorable IPhone cover (reviewed here).
In addition to the above fabulous products, Too Faced has added five new Lip Crémes to their regular lineup.
- Bon Bon – pink papaya
- Taffy- pink marshmallow nude
- Lollipop- violent with orchid shimmer
- Jelly Bean – raspberry red
- Pink Chocolate – berry brown
Too Faced Le Créme Lipsticks ($22) are extremely pigment rich, smooth and creamy. They are also very hydrating; not drying out even during a long day. They have a slightly balm-like consistency but with more depth. These are a great choice for over 40 gals because they do not bleed or feather!
Since I haz a thang for coral, I chose Bon Bon and on the recommendation of friend and fellow blogger, Beauty Junkies Unite, I picked up Jelly Bean too–a very wearable red.
Bon Bon is a bright pink/coral with lots of shine and an opaque finish. This is a great year round shade because it brings such brightness to the face. It looks just as great on a pale girl like as it does with darker skin tones and it will be a stunner with a nice tan this summer. Bon Bon lasted four hours and left a slight stain behind. Yipee, no reapplying every 15 minutes!
Jelly Bean was a little scary but after seeing the shade in person at the counter it was a short bunny hop to the cash register. It has a nice glossy shine and can be sheer or built up depending on your mood. I would agree with the description of raspberry red, however, on my skin it pulls more of the pink tones out for a summery bright pink feel. Jelly Bean lasted even longer than Bon Bon and left a more noticeable stain.
Bottom Line: Too Faced Lip Crémes are richly pigmented, creamy and hydrating. They seem to last a good while making them even more lovable. With 25 shades available, there is sure to be a few you can’t live without–I know I can’t!!
