Wearing Too Faced Cosmetics Perfect Lips in Perfect Red
QUESTION: Besides their affinity for beauty products, what do Tabs and the makeup bag I haul around in my purse have in common?
ANSWER: They both weigh almost 20 pounds!
Yeah, something here desperately needs streamlining, and this time I’m not referring to the cat.
Okay, 20 pounds is probably an exaggeration (for the bag, not the cat). It’s probably more like 1-2 pounds on most days. Maybe 5 every so often.
However much it weighs, it’s a lot.
All of those glosses, lipsticks, compacts, palettes, lip liners, and (occasionally) cans of Fancy Feast (always in gravy) definitely take some muscle to haul around, she said, her shoulder pulled low by the weight of a dozen products.
But my overworked shoulder felt a sudden rush of relief the first time I lined my lips with one of the four new Too Faced Perfect Lips liners ($17 each and available in four twist-up shades), not to be confused with the company’s Perfect Lips Universal Lip Pencil Liner, which only comes in a single shade and lacks a twist-up tip.
Perfect Nude, Perfect Pink, Perfect Spice and Perfect Red line and prime lips to boost the wear time of lipsticks and glosses worn on top of them, and they’re designed to wear well with a wide range of colors.
Take Perfect Pink, for instance. Even when I’m toting around 10 tubes of pink gloss (which happens), it’s neutral enough to work with just about all of them.

When worn by themselves, in which case they look like matte lipsticks, they last about 5-6 hours and fade slowly. The non-drying, non-feathering formula even stands up to Pop Chips and pineapple chunks.
I also like these on low-maintenance days for “my lips but better” looks, when I’m not in the mood to fuss. All I do is line and fill in my lips with one of the pigmented shades (they’re all so smooth and soft!), and dab a dash of lip balm on top for extra shine.
