Never shy of a great matte lip, I leaped on these new $22 Too Faced La Matte Color Drenched Lipsticks the first chance I got.
Too Faced recommends warming them up against your lips before applying them, and I positively agree with them on that. Amazingly enough, the initially dry texture, doesn’t actually dry your actual lips. In fact, my favorite thing about the formula is how little product actually sits on your lips. The texture’s very thin and comfortable.
Too Faced introduced 10 shades of La Matte Color Drenched Lipstick, and here are pics and swatches!
The new Too Faced La Matte Color Drenched Lipsticks: Swatches
When In Doubt is described as a matte cool beige, and it has a lovely subtle pink tinge to it.
A matte peachy nude, Sorry, Not Sorry is a perfect my-lips-but-better shade. It’s one of my favorites among the new lighter colors.
As If is an almost neon pink lemonade, which sounds quite wonderful, doesn’t it? I normally don’t wear bright colors, but this one has grown on me.
Troublemaker is a “hot pink” fuschia, and it’s a really flattering color on most skin tones.
The New Black is an interesting orangey-coral, which I thought was going to be more orange, but it looks more pink-y in real life. This one also went on a little patchy…
Deep rose Hey Gurrl is very easy to wear! It’s vibrant, but it isn’t too bright. It’s more subtle than Troublemaker.
I used and really loved Pitch Perfect, a super bright fuschia berry, in this Too Faced Peanut Butter Palette tutorial. It’s a unique shade, and I don’t see things like it too often. It reminds me of a matte version of YSL Fuschia in Rage. Definitely a favorite.
Rebel Heart is a cool-toned red on the darker side compared to the other new colors, but it looks classic and elegant.
Bachelorette is a watermelon pink and one of the more flattering mid-toned pinks I’ve seen lately.
Maneater is a black plum, and I always, always love shades like this. It went on the patchiest, though, so it’s hard to get an even look.
These are available now for $22 each at Sephora, Ulta, Macys, and toofaced.com. I hope you see something you like enough to take home.
See you in the next,
