When I started seeing reviews pop up for the new Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream lipsticks ($21 US/$25 CAD) I thought the shades and formula looked gorgeous. You may think that sounds silly when I say the formula looked good, but hey, I’m an online shopping fiend. I can spot a good formula in pictures. Well my instincts weren’t wrong.
Indulge your lips with rich creamy color, drenched with luscious, hydrating moisturizers including white lotus flower and power peptides. Moisture has never been so pretty!
Lotus Flower Extract: Hydrating, soothing and lip-conditioning with environmental protection provided by antioxidants.
Power Peptides: Conditioning, smoothing and firming for the delicate lip area.
Indulgent color: Pigment-saturated, one-swipe formulas drench lips with sexy, pure color. Vegan friendly. Paraben-free.
The brushed gold packaging is sleek, compact, gorgeous, and so far seems very resistant to smudges and scratches.
Too Faced describes Honey Bear as a Toasted Mauve. I don’t know about you but that description just sounds incredible to me and guess what? It looks incredible! I am really in love with this colour and it is totally unique to my collection. I can see this being a “my lips but better” shade on many but on my skintone it offers quite the hit of colour. The subtle, refined shimmer makes my lips look plump and juicy and the moisturizing formula feels incredibly comfortable. The La Creme formula has just the right amount of slip and lasts for several hours with even wear. I have had this for several weeks now and it has been residing permanently in my handbag. I will absolutely be picking up more shades.
I purchased this at Sephora.
