I purchased the Sephora holiday set, ‘Give Me More Lip’ back in November and I’ve been meaning to do a review on the products inside so I’ve decided to break it up by brand being that there are a few that brands that had two products in the set. I’ll also be doing a couple of ‘Beauty Showdown’s’ to compare similar products within the set. These reviews will be up over the course of the next two and half months so I hope you enjoy.
First up let’s start with Too Faced. As an avid YouTube watcher I have been watching a lot of reviews on the ‘Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick.’ I’ve even seen watched reviews of the dupes, ‘L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint.’ The dupe is $2.99 and can be purchased HERE and is available in 18 shades while the ‘Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick’, purchased HERE, is $21 and available in 10 shades. Still I was excited to receive the product to try it out, but unfortunately the color just doesn’t work for my complexion,
The color in the set was ‘Melted Fuchsia’ which is described a as a hot pink and it most definitely is. I love the packaging as Too Faced as a whole has great packaging on all their products. It adds sophistication and a soft applicator to the generic lip glosses that you could easily buy at a beauty supply store with the same shape. I will say the product was a bit messy and I applied way too much the first time, so the product does go a long way. For the color to work for me I would have to get as sheer as I can. This is not a product that you need to build up because the color is so intense. A little really does go a long way. Other shades that I would love to try are: ‘Melted Berry’ and ‘Melted Violet.’
The other Too Faced lippie offered was the ‘La Crème‘ lipstick. I had not watched any reviews until I tried out the product and I’m so glad there are other color options. The lipstick can be purchased HERE and is offered in 21 shades and costs $22. The color I received was ‘Naked Dolly’ and similar to that of the ‘Melted’ lippie, it didn’t look great on my skin complexion. It just makes me look entirely too pasty. I love the packaging, but I really love the application. It glides on so smoothly and in building the color I could’ve gotten too carried away and applied to much. When working the product it does look nice, but it’s a product I have to work with not just apply and go. Other shades that I would like to try are: ‘Naughty Nude,’ ‘Plum Brown,’ and ‘Pink Chocolate.’
For both products I’m glad I was able to try them out in a trial size than to spend $43 buying both full size. There was a lot of product given and its sure to last quite some time. I would not purchase these too shades again, but I am interested in trying the shades mentioned above. I wouldn’t say I’m completely disappointed because I love the consistency of both products, especially the ‘La Crème’. The colors just didn’t work out great with my skin tone by themselves. I just have to tone them down extremely to make it work.
