Too Faced La Creme Colour Drenched Lip Cream in Jelly Bean





Ah, Too Faced, makers of lovely eyeshadows and glorious lip products.  La Creme Colour Drenched Lip Cream has been on my list of lipsticks to buy for a while, because I'd heard it was squishy soft and beautifully pigmented, and so when I accidentally did a sizeable BeautyBay order recently, it was one of the things which accidentally fell into my basket.

At £18, it's not a cheap lipstick, but the luxe gold packaging and pretty embossing do make you feel like you're using something a bit special.  According to Too Faced, it provides unprecedented, ultra-comfortable wear by combining creamy colour and intense hydration.  And indeed, the texture is insanely buttery - gliding the bullet across the lips feels more like applying lip balm than it does applying lipstick.  The colour is pigmented, but with a glossy, plush finish which makes my lips look healthy, moist and full.  It really does feel comfortable on the lips - much more balm-like than lipstick like.

The downside of the hydrating formula and comfortable feeling is that it doesn't wear nearly as long or as hard as a more matte formulation - I get about three hours, by the end of which the colour has softened to a stain and lost all its glossiness.  That's okay, though - if you want ultra wear, go for a matte, and if you want a comfortable, casual lip which feels and looks moist, just reapply every two to three hours.

Jelly Bean, the bright pinky red I'm wearing above, is out of stock at many Too Faced retailers online - but Debenhams have a good selection of other shades, from pretty nudes to brighter reds.  I'm definitely curious about Sugar Daddy, the kind of nude rose I really like.

Disclosure:  Bought by me.
