Yabba-dabba-doo and zip-a-dee-doo-dah! I’m wearing Plum Crazy from the new Too Faced La Creme Lip Gloss line, and it is the bomb!
Sorry, the bomb? Lame ’90s reference. What can I say? It’s Friday afternoon, and all I want to do is sneak out of the office early and go watch a movie (I still haven’t seen Edge of Tomorrow).
Yeah, right. As if Tabs would ever allow me to peace out early (dare to dream). If he did, I’d definitely take one of the brand Too Faced La Creme Lip Balms with me. With their shiny finish and sheer tints, they’re super chill, and the ultra moisturizing formula feels goooood on my lips.
There are currently six shades in the new line, and they more or less look the same on my perpetually parched and pigmented pout, but that’s OK. It means I only need one.
OK, three. You know it is. #lipbalmhoarders
They feel rich and buttery on my lips and have a light citrus flavor and scent.
“This ultra-nourishing formula is saturated with antioxidant-rich White Lotus Flower Extract, Black Currant Seed Oil and Hyaluronic Filling Spheres, leaving your lips plump and irresistibly kissable.”

I’d compare them to the $18 Tinted Lip Balms Benefit recently launched, but I wouldn’t exactly call them dupes. The La Creme Lip Balms cost a little more at $22, but you also get more pigment and moisture for that.
The La Cremes also feel slightly thicker to me and last longer on my lips. I’ve been applying Like Buttah, the clear shade, before bed, and I can still feel it there the next morning.
I like the Benefit ones, too, but I prefer the La Cremes. I just think they’re more moisturizing and last longer.
Better than your average balms, for sure, and highly recommended, especially if your lips are dry like mine.
Check out Just Kissed or Plum Craze, if you’re interested. They’re the most tinted of the group.
You can find the new La Creme Lip Balm line now with the rest of the Smitten Kitten fall collection online at toofaced.com (coming soon to Too Faced counters).
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Speaking of smitten kittens…I drove by the Humane Society last night, and they had a big ol’ sign in front that said, “WE HAVE KITTENS.”
It took everything I had to resist my natural cat lady tendencies. I seriously wanted to bring home all of the kittehs. I love them all.
When I see little baby cats, it makes me wish I knew Tabs when he was small. He started coming around toward the end of his kitten-hood, around a year old, so he was more or less a big boy cat by then.
I bet he was the cutest kitten ever.
Cat ladies, were you lucky enough to know your feline friend when he or she was a kitten?
