Too Faced – La Crème Lipstick – Juicy Melons

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

I haven’t posted anything else than nail polish in quite some time, I’m going through my photos to see if I can dig up some fun looks to post. But right now I have a new lipstick that I want to show you. Back in August I bought two of the Too Faced La Crème Color Drenched Lip Cream  in Nude Beach and Fuchsia Shock. Back then I thought it was the nude shade that I would use the most, but since I’ve been doing a lot of neutral eye looks this past Winter I’ve wanted a pop of color to my lips. So Fuchsia Shock has been perfect for that.

Someday Spring will come to Sweden (I hope!) and for that I wanted a new fun color, so I ordered the pinky coral shade Juicy Melons from BeautyBay.


So here it is. I noticed that there is a relief (is there a better word to describe it?) on the top of the cap now, that was not present on the first two I bought. Well, it makes it easier to find this one at least.


It’s a fresh and nice shade that’s useable at the office, if you don’t want to stand out too much but still want something fun.

I also swatched it together with my other two La Crème lipsticks:


L-R: Nude Beach, Juicy Melons, Fuchsia Shock

When I’m wearing these I usually just blot them a little, since they’re so creamy they can have  a tendency to slide off. If you you want maximum color and staying power I really think it’s best to use a lip liner underneath. I’ll have to try that with Fuchsia Shock sometime.

What do you think of these? Have you tried any of them yourself?

New Lippies from Too Faced

Sunday, August 26th, 2012

When I first read about the Too Faced La Crème Color Drenched Lip Cream, I knew I had to try them out. I really like creamy and moisturizing lipsticks, and there are quite some nice shades in the line. I ordered Nude Beach and Fuchsia Shock from Unfortunately they didn’t arrive at the same time, and since I couldn’t wait I actually tried my Fuchsia Shock before the other one came, hence the weird photo montages.

First off, the packaging. They come in a cute pink package with the color label on top. The lipstick tube is a golden metal which feels quite heavy and luxurious.

The lipsticks themselves: Fuchsia Shock to the left, Nude Beach to the right.

These are swatches done on my hand. Nude Beach is a very nice nude shade, and Fuchsia Shock is a bright fuchsia shade.

I also swatched them on my lips:

Nude Beach will probably be my favorite lipstick for fall when I want a “My Lips But Better” shade.

Fuchsia Shock, what a gorgeous color!

I really like how smooth they are to apply, and they look really glossy on the lips. I don’t really know how to describe the scent, it makes me think of candy that has licorice and lemon flavor. The only downside with these lipsticks is that due to their nature they won’t stay on for that long, after a meal you definitely have to re-apply.

What do you think of these? Do you have any, or planning on getting them? I think I will end up with one of the coral shades as well, either Juicy Melons or Coral Fire.

My first Morgana haul!

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

I’ve been eyeing Morgana Minerals for a while, and after the name switch to Morgana Cryptoria I finally placed a small order, consisting of six eyeshadow samples and two vegan lipsticks. So here’s my crappy try at photographing the products:

I just had to show the business card, since it’s got some Poser art on it. I doodle with that myself and I love seeing works of it outside the Poser community =)

I’ve been quite interested in trying Morgana’s lipsticks, and the choice fell on the two new shades Cotton Candy and Otherworldly. I also ordered the following eyeshadow samples (same order as in pic):

Cryptic, Harbinger, She Creature
Shining Armor , Winifred, LE#7

I haven’t tried these yet, but at first sight they look lovely!

What I do have is some more photos of the lipsticks. First some close-ups (click for bigger version):

These are taken with flash, and Otherworldly looks a little lighter than it really is here.

Cotton Candy is a medium pink with silver sparkles in it, I love it! This is a shade that’s pretty much “work safe”.

I’ll be wearing this a lot!

And then we have Otherworldly, which is a dark purple with blue sparkle in it. On the site it says that this has a grape scent, but I associate it with some kind of incense, like the scent in a random new age store. Anyone know what I mean? =) Anyway, here’s what it looks like on my lips:

This photo is taken on another day in different lighting (ah I look creepy!)

The lipsticks don’t dry out my lips, which I was a bit afraid of since I have pretty dry lips to begin with. So thumbs up for that!
