You all know I am a big fan of Too Faced’s Melted Chihuahua liquid lipstick, but I’d yet to try their La Creme Color Drenched line. I always loved the packaging with the gold tubes — they have a way of standing out! When they released new shades to this popular line, I knew I had to give some a try. Especially when I kept seeing pictures of the infamous Unicorn Tears floating around social media. What a unique shade!
If you want to see all 10 of the newly released shades swatched on my lips, you’ve come to the right place! But be forewarned…this post is very picture heavy!
Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lipsticks
As already stated, Too Faced recently introduced 10 new shades into their La Creme Color Drenched line to add to the original collection. Among the new shades there are 5 iridescent shimmers and 5 creams.The creamy shades — Topless, Sugar Daddy, Double Bubble, 90210hhh, and Berry Naughty — feel incredibly moisturizing on the lips. Something I want to point out about the creams is that they almost ‘melt’ when you’re applying them to your lips. Not that they drip or anything, but as soon as I started to apply them to my lips they started to feel much more like a lip gloss than a lipstick. This kind of threw me off for a little. Not a con, at all, but something I wanted to point out.The iridescent/shimmer shades — Unicorn Tears, Clueless, WHAM!, and Ursula — have glitter in them, so you can feel that grit between your lips when you rub them together. But they aren’t particularly uncomfortable. These also had that same type of ‘melt into a lipgloss’ feel to them, but not as much as the creams. They still felt very moisturizing, for having so much sparkle!
Topless (Apricot Nude): Feels very moisturizing and glides on easily. It can be somewhat patchy to apply, especially if you have dry or very lined lips, like I have. In my opinion this color will suit light skintones the best.
Sugar Daddy (Nude Rose): Of course this is totally my type of nude and my favorite! Out of all the shades in this new release, this one applied the easiest. No patchiness, no tugging. Just glided on my lips like honey!
Clueless (Shimmering Cotton Candy): This color shows up a lot more sheer than it appears in the tube, but it does give a beautiful iridescent goldish sheen to the lips. Again, it was somewhat hard to apply evenly — I have very lined lips and it wanted to settle into every line — but once on it felt nice. When I went to remove it, though, it was difficult to get all the glitter off! Same goes for all the shimmers in this line — expect that when the color fades away, you’ll still have lots of iridescent sheen sticking around!
Double Bubble (Bubblegum Pink): This color shows up a lot softer than it appears in the tube. Which I liked — the bright color scared me! — but if you like that bright, vibrant color, you might be disappointed. It’s still a bright color, but not as bright as it appears it will be. It’s a really nice spring color, in my opinion! It can go on patchy, so you have to be careful when applying.
Unicorn Tears (Iridescent Shimmer): The star of the show! Looking at the tube you would think it would be bright-mint goodness all over your lips, but as you can see it shows up more as a light shimmer on your lips. This one I particularly think best used as a ‘topper’ to whatever fun color lipstick you want to wear. It will give you a beautiful iridescent glow!
Mean Girls (Shimmering Cool Pink): The glitter chunks are a bit more noticable in this one, but is not as patchy to apply as some others. The glitter gives your lips a pink/purple shift that’s absolutely beautiful.
WHAM! (Iridescent Raspberry): This shade also showed up on the lips a lot different than it appeared in the tube. It looks like a dark plum type of color, but it looked more bright raspberry on the lips. The glitter in this one has a purple-ish shift to it. Also very pretty, but can apply sheer.
90210hhh (Candy Apple Red): A very nice, cool-tone red that is extremely creamy and pigmented. With such a bright color, it would be safest to use a lip liner underneath to prevent feathering.
Ursula (Shimmering Deep Plum): This was another oclor that looked plum/purple in the tube, but on the lips it came off more as a red/brown type of color. It can apply patchy and it wanted to settle into all the lines on my lips. I definitely recommend a liner or lip primer underneath.
Berry Naughty (Berry Wine): I know its showing up patchy on the inner part of my lips, but I wanted to show this swatch as an example if you have dry lips. (or distressed lips, like in my case after removing all the previous colors!) I think you can also see in this picture how it settled into the lines of my lips. It’s a pretty bright berry color, though.
My biggest recommendation with these La Creme Color Drenched lipsticks are to use a lip liner or lip primer underneath them. While all the shimmer shades in this collection are beautiful, they would work even better/easier if you used it as a topper to any of your lipsticks. It will give them a beautiful sheen!
