What kind of lipstick person are you? Do you prefer a long-wearing formula that isn't quite so comfy to a more balm-like lipsick that needs frequent touch-ups? In my dream world, all lipsticks would be comfortable to wear, non-drying, and long-lasting. Until that day arrives, Too Faced's La Creme Color Drenched Lip Creams, $21.00 USD, are an excellent option for those of you who love the look of lip color but aren't big on the drying effect some shades have on your lips.
The La Creme line is made up of twenty shades, from subdued to smokin', containing lotus flower extract and peptides to keep the lips moisturized and happy. Too Faced is a cruelty free brand and the La Cremes are Vegan friendly and free of parabens.
The packaging is a gold metal twist tube with the Too Faced logo on the side. Since it's a brushed metal, it doesn't hold finger prints. Yay! These are taste-free and have a slight sent of Danish butter cookies (I.E. YUMSSSS) when first applied that fades almost immediately.
I choose Honey Bear based on the shade description ("Toasted Mauve"), blogger swatches, and the adorable name. I mean, come on. It's cute. I'd certainly rather tell someone I was wearing "Honey Bear" over "Sexy Sangria Serenade" or "Bend Me, Shape Me Chartreuse", ya know?! When I opened the packaged and saw the color in the tube, I was pretty excited. It's one of those awesome online shopping wins where you pick out the perfect shade for yourself! On me, it darkens my natural lip color to this flattering rosy brown with flecks of golden shimmer that catch the light. I LOVE this lip color! It lasts me three hours before it's time to reapply, and it's so comfortable. It's RIGHT up there with lip balm! Like a balm, you do give up some wear time as a trade-off for the more moisturizing formula. Personally, that's a trade I'll happily make to avoid dry, ragged lips that need time in lip ICU (I.E. lip scrub followed by half a tub of balm).

Honey Bear can be applied sheer or you can build it up with multiple swipes.

At the end of the day, my lips don't feel sapped of hydration like they sometimes do after a day of wearing lipstick. This has become my absolute favorite lip color that goes everywhere with me! Since this is neutral color, I can wear it anywhere, during any season. I am head over heels for Honey Bear!
Have you tried any of the Too Faced La Creme line?
