Holographic Lip Color - La Creme Mystical Lipstick
✨ Today, I will be discussing some lip products from one of my favorite high end makeup brands; Too Faced, of course! For lip products, Too Faced isn’t a company that I normally turn to, so I thought that it would be fun to give it a go and splurge on four different Too Faced lip products. The products that mainly caught my eye were the new La Creme mystical lipstick shades from the Life’s a Festival collection. These shades actually change color based on your body temperature, and the shades vary from person to person. Not only that, the shimmer/glowiness is insane, and wouldn’t a lipstick that’s named “angel tears” catch your eye too? 👇 Here are my thoughts on these purchases:
😇 La Crème Mystical Lipstick: Angel Tears
💸 Price: $22
I’m not gonna lie, the reason why these La Creme lip products stood out to me is because of the creative names. Angel Tears is such a pretty name, and is perfect for this lip color. I chose Angel Tears because the color is probably the most wearable shade of the collection, and I wanted something I could use for everyday wear. Angel tears is this beautiful frosted color that completely covers your natural lip color, despite being such a light shade. Other than the frosty overlay, this shade doesn't have much color to it, so this isn’t for you if you’re looking for a dramatic, intense lip shade. Don't be fooled by the nude color of the actual lipstick when you first open the tube, because these La Creme products are extremely pigmented, almost too pigmented. I recommend blotting your lips after application because it goes on so strong. Even though this is a light color, the application is much bolder on your lips than you may expect from a color this light. But it’s nothing a little blotting can’t fix!
As I mentioned before, this is the most wearable color of the four in this collection. If you only end up purchasing one of these, I would recommend this one. This beautiful, frosty white color will make you feel like a snow princess!
Magic Crystal Lip Topper: Angel Tears
💸 Price: $19
This Magic Crystal Lip Topper is meant to be layered on top of the corresponding La Creme lipstick color. I decided to choose either Angel Tears or Fairy Tears rather than purchasing both, because these lip toppers simply act as a glossy top coat, with the La Creme products as the main event. I chose Angel Tears because it is the lightest color and would look nice layered over both La Creme lipsticks I purchased.
These products aren’t as useful as the La Crème lipsticks are, because they are not pigmented and only add a glossy sheen. There is very minimal color and this product only acts as an additional glossy shine on top of the lipstick you’ve already applied. I also noticed that if you apply it on it’s own without the corresponding lipstick, the staying power is not very good. Again, there was little to no color difference on my lips, simply a glossy sheen. My verdict is that this product isn’t a bad one by any means, but it is a waste of money. Unless you are specifically looking for a glossy shine to layer on top of your lipsticks, this won’t be what you’re looking for (even then, you can find cheaper, more effective products other than this one). Basically, this purchase was really of pointless. If you are deciding between the lip topper line and the La Crème lipsticks, go with the lipsticks. This was a beautiful purchase, but a bit unnecessary, especially for the price.
