The five new La Creme Lipsticks in the Spring 2014 Haute Chocolate Collection from Too Faced are so creamy — so dreamy — that I almost forgot about the citrus tree-killing cold snap outside. (Grrr… I think it eighty-sixed my beloved dwarf orange tree.)
Someone pass me some hot tea and another pair of socks, thanks!
I love that these crazy opaque colors evoke spring without going the usual pastel route, and they’re oh, so smooth…
Hello, it’s the ’80s calling on this giant old-school cordless phone. Is Karen there??
Why, yes. Yes, she is.
I think I may have worn something like Lollipop to the eighth-grade dance in 1989…along with my Jessica McClintock dress, haha! — except that this is an updated version with smaller flecks of glitter.
I’d wear this one with a peach or coral cheek because pairing it with a blush shade too similar to the color of the lipstick could look a little dated (picture Joan Cusack in Working Girl).
I love Taffy because — well, because it’s delicious.
But seriously, I love warm peachy pink nude Taffy because it doesn’t look washed out or unnatural; it just might be my new favorite everyday lip shade. I bet it would look amaze-balls with with smokey eyes!
Oh, but you might want to pat it down when you first apply to smooth it out, because I’ve noticed that Taffy likes to hang out in my vertical lip lines (how rude!).
Doesn’t bright creamy red Jelly Bean look like a purr-fect partner for black cat liner? Cat lady says, “MEOW!”
Same goes for creamy coral pink Bon Bon. Both shades have pigment that’s off the charts! Totally opaque, and they feel fabulously smooth.
And then there’s Pink Chocolate — sort of an updated version of a ’90s brown lip. If you were to wear it with a plaid shirt and Timbaland boots and blast Biggie and Lil’ Kim, you’d be reliving my college experience, LOL!
Of all five shades here, it’s the least pigmented, but by no means would I call it sheer. More like “semi-opaque cream.”
They’re unflavored, but the lot of ’em smell faintly of marshmallows to me. Wear time clocks in around 3-4 hours for the more pigmented ones, and a little less for the others.
Look for the five new La Cremes, along with the rest of the Too Faced spring 2014 Haute Chocolate collection, at toofaced.com starting December 12.
