Too Faced recently launched a fewÂ new shadesÂ from their La Matte + LaÂ CrÃ¨me lipstick collections at the end of February. And ooo boy, what a perfect time to try out their lipsticks for the first time!
The Too FacedÂ LaÂ CrÃ¨me 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 theÂ 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 LaÂ CrÃ¨me, exceptÂ 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 CrÃ¨me 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!
I realized that La Creme’s 9021Ohhh, looked similar to the La Matte Rebel Heart colour, so I decided to swatch them side-by-side. Check them out! One is just a matte version of the other, basically. Do you see the similarities?Â Left:Â La Creme 9021Ohhh
Right:Â La Matte Rebel Heart
The day after I received the PR package in the mail, I wanted to do a swatch video and first impressions, so if you’d like to see that, click the play button below!
