I’m guilty, I admit it, I wrote off Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Creams ($21) when they launched.
I’m just not a fan of cream lipstick. I find most creams drying and the longer you wear them the more moisture they suck from your lips. When there isn’t anymore moisture to suck out they go for your soul! It’s deadly.
No..but seriously. I also get lip crumbs from cream lipstick. Lip crumbs are those little flaky gross pieces of lipstick that float around your dry mouth. It’s not pretty people.
Too Faced La Creme Lipstick changed how I feel about creams. They’ve managed to create a moisturizing cream formula that looks and feels incredible on lips.
How’d they do dat?
These luxe little lippies come in a weighty slim gold tube. I was impressed with the packaging, they pack some weight and have an elegant look and feel.
These are available in sixteen shades and so far the most impressive aspect of the shade selection is the fact there seems to be an MLBB shade for everyone here (my lips but better). Don’t get me wrong there are some vibrant shades of color as well including a few vampy lip shades as well. But it seems like the entire color catalog is made up of a selection of shades that you’ll look at, try, and proceed to crow with delight that it enhances the shade of your lip tone. This in turn gives you the perfect MLBB look.
Of course, another thing to really love here is the moisturizing factor. As I mentioned above creams can be pretty unforgivable but Too Faced successfully created a cream lipstick that applies like a balm or a tinted lip treatment. These glide onto lips like butter sans tugging or patchy application. The finish has a slight shine to it with a balm-y like texture that wears comfortably and moisturizing throughout the entire wear.

I could sit for a few hours with one of these on and come out of the experience feeling like my lips are nicely hydrated. Cream yes but it’s a cream that works to hydrate lips. Supposedly the formula includes peptides for smoothing and conditioning lips, this might be why it has such a smooth, flawless finish on.
These lipsticks are incredibly lightweight but still manage to yield color in a single swipe. Pigmentation is excellent here and nothing was left out or forsaken to give them that moisturizing finish.

The end result?
My mind is completely changed about creams. I guess they can be done right!
Too Faced did an excellent job with their new La Creme Lipsticks. I highly recommend checking these out, I think you’ll love them as much as I do.
A fabulously moist little lippie with a cream finish!
