New $21 Lip Injection Color Bomb in Bigger Berry, by Too Faced Cosmetics

Yup, I’m still waiting.

Still waiting for that personal wind machine I keep hoping someone will invent. The battery-powered, artificially intelligent one that follows me around wherever I go, ensuring that my hair is kept in a permanent state of wind-blown divaliciousness worthy of Mrs. Carter/Sasha Fierce herself.

Yeah, that would be AWESOME.

But then there’s the whole issue of getting your windblown hair stuck in whatever lip product you’re wearing (#firstworldproblems).

Sticky, shiny lipglosses? Sooo great for flashing pouty faces at strangers on the bus, like that cute boy in the glasses (oh, hai!), but really, really annoying when your hair accidentally gets stuck to your lips.

Coming soon to rescue lips from wind-whipped hair, the new Too Faced Lip Injection Color Bombs ($21 each), a line of six chubby twist-up stick balms to lavish lips with a stain of color while plumping them up at the same time.

Why give them a try? — well, other than the fact that they won’t stick to your lips outside or while you’re posing in front of your wind machine?

Why try these Lip Injection Color Bombs by Too Faced Cosmetics?

  • Because they’re lightweight, comfortable and non-sticky! They feel just like a lip balm but look way more intense than that.
  • Because they smell (faintly) and taste like yummy strawberry candy.
  • Because the slightly shiny satin finish goes with almost any makeup look from dressy to casual.
  • Because of their smooth, even color
  • Because of their 2-3 hour wear time, which isn’t bad for such pigmented balms.
  • Because they’re pretty darned moisturizing (the formula contains mango butter and Vitamins A, C and E to soften and smooth yo’ pout), although not quite as moisturizing as Neutrogena’s similar MoistureSmooth Color Sticks.
  • Because of the way they tingle when they’re applied (they’re lip-plumping products, after all) and how it reminds me I’m alive! The sensation reminds me of MAC’s Plushglasses and lasts about 5 minutes before I don’t notice it anymore.

As for the lip plumping effect, it’s very subtle with these, so if you were hoping to come away with lips like one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you might be disappointed.

Like similar stick balms available from other lines right now (Tarte LipSurgence, Clinique Chubby Sticks and the Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Sticks), these Lip Injection Color Bombs offer an easy way to dress up lips without a ton of effort.

Their plumping powers take things a step further, although the overall impact, at least on my lips, is nuanced.

I think these are more pigmented than similar products, although I do wish they were also a little more moisturizing, but all in all, I like ‘em. If you and I were shopping at Sephora together and you asked me what I thought, I’d say, “They’re pretty good if you want something that’s not sticky or too shiny.”

PRICE: $21 each
AVAILABILITY: Six shades total, all available now in the permanent line at Sephora, Ulta and online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B

Time to pack (AGAIN)

Not that I’m complaining. Much. I am a little tired, but traveling for the third week in a row has definitely kept things interesting, to say the least.

I’m heading down to Venice Beach in Southern California first thing tomorrow, and this time I think Tabs wants to come with me.

But, unfortunately, he can’t. He’s all booked up. :)

Part of me secretly wishes he’d stow away in my luggage. Ha! He could do meet-and-greets while I looked for the nearest Pink Berry.

How are things on your end? I hope your day was filled with blue-eyed baby cats and wonderful surprises. What are you up to tonight?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

  2. Gorgeous colors! Loved Coral Pop and Bigger Berry on you. Are these more hydrating than the Clinique Chubby Sticks Karen?

    Aww Tango does the exact same thing! Every time I take my suitcase out, he sits on top of it. That’s when I wish he were a human child so he could actually come with me ;)

  4. What a GREAT review of these!!! I love the comparison of not getting RHWBH-like lips, HAAAA!! And btw, you looking be-aut-tiful in these pics and the necklace is awesome. I might have to pick up at least one of these bc of my long hair and it always sticking in my lip color #annoying. Keep the great reviews and swatches coming girl!

  5. Kim says:

    Ooh, I like the berry but I think I’d like a bit more moisture. I might grab one if I get my wind machine going, though. I usually reserve that for when I’m writhing on the hood of my Jaguar a la Tawny Kitaen. ;)

    Have a blast in Venice Beach!

  6. Too faced is pure love, loved these pencil lipstick too, I loved the wonderful colors and pictures with each

    And this cute packaging!

    Karen will travel, and Tabs is? tadinho he leaves me I got this this cute! loved the picture of him as this kitten is special right!

    I’m already in love with him ..

    Karen’m a little sad, I have some problems I hope to solve

    A big kiss for you! (oh i love this necklace)

    I have two of these (nude and the light pink) and I am so in love!! I think slowly I’ll collect all of the colors :)

  8. Agata says:

    The colors are definitely beautiful and they look beautiful on lips however I tried one of them at Ulta and the tingling sensation was really bothering me and wouldn’t go away for hours even after I used make up remover to take it off. I also swatched two colors on my hand and my hand got really swollen and red and I don’t think it’s desirable…I must be really allergic to it.

    Anyways, safe travels and have fun in California!

  9. Tennyoceres says:

    I wanted really bad to like these when I was at Ulta yesterday. Then I realized I had 3 Revlon Just Kissable Balm Stains in my basket for the same price as one Too Faced Lip Injection Color Bomb. I really shouldn’t be splurging right now. Late honeymoons aren’t cheap!

  10. Stephanie A. says:

    I really like the Coral Pop, it’s so pretty! Safe travels :)

  11. Carla says:

    I have to say this, even if it’s not related to the lip product… I’m TOTALLY and madly in love with your eyeshadow look in here. Any chance of a small tutorial on it? A list of colors at least? Pretty please? Puppy face? :D

  12. vanessa says:

    These looks tiny.I don’t know if it’s worth it.

  13. Chelsea says:

    Aww, poor Tabs! Jiji likes to hang out in my luggage before I travel.
