Berries in the springtime? Absolutely! Why not?
Too Faced just added four new shades to their deliciously creamy and potently pigmented La Creme Lipstick line, and if you love berry shades, your makeup bag runneth over with good luck.
I’ve had a thing for these high-shine, full-coverage La Creme lippies ever since they dropped on Too Faced counters last summer, and I like this new batch of berries as well.
Things in the plus column…
- They apply smoothly — no skipping to my Lou, my darlin’ — and don’t settle into my fine lip lines (yay!)
- One layer lasts from 3-4 hours
- The super moisturizing, lightweight formula puts a smile on my dry winter lips
And maybe it’s just my freakish sense of smell (El Hub compares it to a bloodhound’s), but I swear that Too Faced tweaked the scent with this batch. I could be wrong, but I get a whiff of marshmallows and lemons? And less of the licorice than I get from the other shades.
It sounds like a strange combination, I’ll give you that, but somehow, it works (least I think so).
If the sound of the scent has you concerned, for what it’s worth, it doesn’t last. After a minute or so with it on, I can barely detect it.
And in case you were wondering, nope, these are unflavored. No traces of the marshmallow or lemon (or licorice) in the taste department.
If you live in a hot climate, you’re lucky! That, and you’ll want to be a little careful with these, as they just may melt. I probably wouldn’t leave a tube sitting in a hot car for long…
I’m a little surprised (but not at all disappointed) that Too Faced decided to release these shades now, this time of year, as I’m used to seeing berry lip shades more often in the fall, but hey, why not, right? These shades play well with the purples and taupes in Too Faced’s spring palette, the Boudoir Eyes Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Collection, so sign me up!
