Too Faced Taffy La Creme

Too Faced Taffy La Creme Lipstick ($21) is one of five new shades of La Creme Lipstick that launched with the Too Faced Haute Chocolate Spring 2014 Collection. This shade is permanent and won’t be available for a limited time.

It’s def a shade that isn’t for everyone….! I couldn’t really wear it well unfortunately! It’s one of those shades that gives me a zombie lip look! I wish I could wear it but I’m not sure this one is for me.

Taffy is called a pink marshmallow nude and that’s fairly accurate plus hey, it sounds freaking delicious. It has a lovely luminous shine and it embodies what a true cream lipstick formula should be. It’s creamy, hydrating, and beautifully shine. However, it’s a shade that just falls into every single small little natural line on my mouth. If you have dry lips it is going to have a very uneven, unflattering finish so exfoliate well prior to application and a little lip balm under it might be helpful as well.

The color is a nude pastel peach that will look best on fairer skin with less than pigmented lips. I have pigmented lips and it is opaque however, too much of it looks a bit patchy and uneven on my lips.

If you can wear it Too Faced Taffy La Creme Lipstick is likely going to be a winner for you….! However, for those with a warmer skin tone and pigmented lips might find it a challenge to use!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Zombie? Where is the Zombie? (*Looking around)

    I think this looks nicer on you than you think Muse! 😉 I would love to be able to pull that color off but I don’t think I can.

    It actually doesn’t look bad on you at all. Is just makes you look….subdued? But definitely not zombie lips. I’m just used to seeing you with more pop.

  • Robin

    I agree with the others. Looks good on you, but will make me look Walking Deadish. I’m very fair and adding an almost no color on my lips; not good. I ordered all the new lippies but this one; it’s too pale for a pale princess like me. 😀

      aw thanks robin I feel weird in it to me honest 😀 the others you’ll LOVE 😀 they are pigmented!

  • Stacy

    You can really pull off Nudes and Nude Pinks……I’m jealous!!! You look BEAUTIFUL! XO

    I agree, doesn’t look bad on you but it’s a little to “mod” for you because you love rich pigmented lips usually in your fotd’s. I was rockin the zombie look today because I had chapped lips, and my coworker asked me “wheres your lips today?” LOL I almost always have a true lipstick on so I know it feels odd even when the consensus is that it looks ok.

      lol indeed 🙂 very mod! LOL…oh no! same here, my lips are all kinds of chapped and looking white! ew!
