Too Faced La Matte + La Crème lipsticks

Too Faced La Creme & La Matte lipsticksToo Faced recently launched a few new shades from their La Matte + La Crème lipstick collections at the end of February. And ooo boy, what a perfect time to try out their lipsticks for the first time!

TooFacedThe Too Faced La Crème lipsticks go on like a creamy lipbalm consistency. Although much more pigmented than a balm, the colour payoff is excellent with a nice semi-gloss finish to the lips. I might have to pick up a couple of lighter shades, as I don’t necessarily wear the dark shades on an everyday basis.

I’m equally pleased with the Too Faced La Matte colours I received to review, as I thought they would tug more on my lips, considering it’s a matte formulation. However, it went on the exact same way as La Crème, except drying to a matte finish. The matte shades are beautiful and have an intense colour payoff with one swipe from the bullet. Both the matte and creme lipsticks have a white lotus flower extract in it, which I assume gives off the most faintest of scents, but it’s a nice delicate smell that you really have to look for (it’s not an intense smell).

Although, I’ve only worn these for a few days, I can attest that both the La Matte, and the La Crème formulas, do not have the longest staying power on the lips. Consider bringing them along with you throughout the day to touch up after eating/drinking.

Alright, onto the swatches!
