The Problem: Your favorite pigmented lip products disappear faster than Coolio’s rap career (OMG, Gangsta’s Paradise!). Is there anything you can do about it?
Too Faced says sÃ, se puede! Worn beneath other lip products, their new Lip Insurance lip primer ($19, available at Sephora stores and online) is designed to prevent color fading, bleeding and creasing while simultaneously ramping up the richness of lipsticks and glosses. It’s also jam packed with ceramides and peptides to plump lips and help restore natural collagen.
Too Faced took out all the guesswork from choosing colors, too, because it’s only available in one, which they call Nude. Nude goes on clear with a matte finish and has a light, non-sticky texture that feels smooth like butter. Being a huge fan of Too Faced Shadow Insurance, I couldn’t wait to give Lip Insurance a try
Oh, it feels *divine* on the lips, but apart from that and the incredibly adorable packaging (yay for doe-foot applicators!), I’m not overly impressed. I didn’t really notice better wear time or pigment with the lip products I tried it with, not with glosses OR lipsticks. And it made my lippies kinda thirsty, too.
I mean, sure, it feels great and looks cute, but is that enough for $19? Compared to good old fashioned lip pencils like Too Faced Perfect Lips Liner, it leaves a little something to be desired. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: C
If you’re reading this right now, congratulations! You made it through Monday, girl! As Tabs would say, “It’s all gravy from here.” For me the day went by without any fires, and that’s always a good sign. The most exciting part of my day was reading about the new Apple iPhone!
I’m such an Apple nerd… Their stuff’s so pretty to look at and makes me feel more creative. I can’t WAIT to get one in my little paws and play.
What are ya doin’ tonight? I rented It’s Complicated again (LOVE MERYL!). Tabs is making popcorn.
Have a great night!
