Name: Lip of Luxury
Brand: Too Faced
From Too Faced’s website:
Drenched in shea butter rich color and diamond shine our exclusive formula smoothes out fine lines and creases while it pampers your lips with a fizzy moisture surge of pure champagne essences. This billion-dollar blend of pure pigments has serious staying power and feels as soft as satin on the lips.
What I liked:
– available in lots of shades
– creamy texture
– doesn’t bleed
– the packaging
What I didn’t like:
– the scent
– the price
I’m a sucker for anything pink so when I saw this lipstick I just had to have it. The packaging is so cute and girly! The shiny and metallic pink tube has a diamond-like crystal on the top of the cap and I feel like a princess every time I use it. But I have to say I’m not sure I’d feel this way about the packaging if I were 20 years older as I think it appeals more to young girls.
The lipstick is available in 12 shades. I have Centerfold, a brownish mauve/pink shade that looks very natural on the lips. The pigmentation is good and its creamy consistency ensures a smooth application. It is also fairly moisturizing (but not thanks to Shea Butter since it’s listed fairly down the ingredient list and so won’t do much), but I still like to use lip balm underneath.
Once applied, the lipstick would stay put and not bleed nor smudge. It’s not one of the most long-lasting lippies I’ve tried and it disappears after about two hours of wear, so I need to reapply it often. Still, I think the staying power is decent for a lipstick.
But even though I like these lipsticks I won’t purchase more simply because I hate the scent! Not only it is quite strong and you can still smell it for a while once applied on your lips, which is something I can’t stand in lip products, but it’s very unappealing! I’m not sure if it smells like champagne as I’m a teetotaller and don’t know what champagne smells like but it reminds me vaguely of grapes.
I’ve bought this online so I didn’t have a chance to smell the scent before purchasing but I strongly urge you to do so if you’re considering getting this lipstick as the scent may put some people off. And in case you’re wondering about the champagne essence claims, that’s just grape extract.
Overall, Too Faced Lip Of Luxury is an average lipstick with a very pretty and fancy packaging. It is creamy, moisturizing and doesn’t bleed but the staying power is just ok and the scent is strong and unappealing.
