Too Faced La Crème Color Drenched Lip Cream lipstick collection review + swatches

 
          For Fall 2012, Too Faced released a smooth new lipstick line in their Art of Sexy collection. The Too Faced La Crème Color  Drenched Lip Creams have a pigmented and creamy formula with moisture rich lotus flower and power peptides. The collection consists of sixteen beautiful new colors that I'm excited to showcase for you today.


          The Too Faced La Crème lip colors are organized into four groups: nudes, spices, pinks, and reds. You can see the color-coordinated dots on the packaging above. The pink box is too pretty, with fanciful patterning that includes a white peacock, a white rabbit, and a tree full of flowers. I plan on keeping the packaging; it's too pretty to toss, plus it helps to keep things organized.



          The Too Faced La Crème lip colors are packaged in golden tubes with raised Too-Faced logos. The cases have a matte shine finish and do not track fingerprints. Too Faced La Creme lip colors have a soft formula and creamy feel. The lipsticks apply with a balmy thickness; this may cause the formulato catch on areas of lips. Pressing your lips together a few times evens things out very nicely and dryness will disappear under the uniform creamy layer. The finish is glossy; I can even feel some of the gloss-like texture when wearing the lipsticks. In general, glossy and 'creamy' lipstick formulas tend to become uncomfortable as they dry out during the course of a day. I found that Too Faced La Crème lipsticks did have the weighty feel of a cream lipstick, however the formula remained comfortable during the wear time. The Too Faced La Crème lip colors apply medium to opaque in one swipe. Two or more swipes will give a full amount of color.  The lasting power is reasonable as long as you're not eating/wiping etc, however like most soft formula lipsticks, these will have to be reapplied at some point. The Too Faced La Crème Lipsticks do not have a taste and the lipsticks have a distinct scent that reminds me of lemon cookies.

          I've taken photos of the lipsticks up close so you can get a better idea of their individual nuances. They're grouped into four categories, as I mentioned above. The Too Faced La Crème Nudes include: Naughty Nude, Naked Dolly, Nude Beach, and In the Buff.

          The Too Faced La Crème Spices lipsticks include: Spice Spice Baby, Cinnamon Kiss, Honey Bear, and Sweet Maple.


         The Too Faced La Crème Pinks include: Marshmallow Bunny, Razzle Dazzle Rose, Juicy Melons, and Fuchsia Shock.

           The Too Faced La Crème Reds include: I Want Candy, Coral Fire, Stiletto Red, and Divine Wine.


          I've swatched each of the Too Faced La Crème lipstick colors below. First up are the 'Nudes' and 'Spices.' Naughty Nude is a light nude with pink tones. Naked Dolly is a pale pink peach. Nude Beach is a pale pink. In the Buff is a warm beige nude that is of similar intensity to Naughty Nude. Spice Spice Baby is a light-medium with brown tones. Cinnamon Kiss is medium spiced pink. Honey Bear is a medium mauve brown. Sweet Maple is a plum brown.


            The Too Faced La Crème 'Pinks' and 'Reds' are swatched below. Marshmallow Bunny is a pale cool pink. Razzle Dazzle Rose is a light cool rose pink. Juicy Melons is a light pink coral. Fuschia Shock is a beautiful bright fuchsia pink. I Want Candy is a medium pink coral. Coral Fire is a medium coral. Stiletto Red is a neutral classic red. Divine Wine is a classic bordeaux.


          The new Too Faced La Crème collection is very much 'la crème de la crème' of Too Faced's lip color line. The line has a gotten a lot of love from other bloggers and I can see why. The formula is smooth and comfortable for a 'cream' formula lipstick. The finish has a glossy shine, so you could easily skip the lip gloss application step in the morning. What I like best is the color range. The selection is vibrant, modern, and has all the basics. My favorites would be the nudes (you know me), though I found deeper colors like Fuchsia Shock and Bordeaux to be quite beautiful as well. Thanks for reading! Have you tried Too Faced La Crème lipsticks? Which colors stand out to you? Do you like creamy lipstick formulas?

Love, Dovey.

  5. Hey Dovey! So sorry to hear this is happening! Here is my original comment:

    Wow, this is insane! I suspect a lot of shades are really nude or my lips but better for me, and they look so gorgeous lining up!

    I've been having some problems with Google as well. I'm not very sure if it's because I went dot com and it is now entirely new for Google, and they're less inclined to pull pictures from the site. I'm really hoping things will go back to normal soon. I started blogging because I wanted (and still want) to share. There's no point if people can't find me properly!

  7. Aww Dovey, I hope the glitch stops happening for you. :(
    Here is my original comment:

    SOOOO MANY COLORS! I really really just might have to pick one of these up. Or two. And you're right, the packaging is just *too* pretty to toss!

  8. Sorry that happened to you Dovey :( <3

    They look very glossy and moisturizing. Fuchsia shock and stiletto red stand out to me the most. I never had any TF lip products but those look delicious. You had me by 'creme de la creme' ... I think I have to swatch at least one of those colours :) / Claire

  10. In the Buff, Juicy Melons, and Fuchsia Shock all look lovely. I don't know why I never swatch these for myself when I'm at the store, but I need to make a point of it next time I'm there. I really do prefer more opaque formulas, so these sound right up my alley.
