Whether you’re into Too Faced as a brand or not, these lippies have probably popped up in many a YT vid or ‘gram post and grabbed your attention with the fun pops of colour and the sleek af packaging. It’s a bit of a marmite trend, but I am so into the whole peach thing. I know right, shockerrrr. I just really like anything fucking peach, and this whole Too Faced collection is no exception. It’s all peachy!
The Too Faced Peach Kiss Lipsticks* promise to give you a “burst of intense matte color, unsurpassed comfort and hydration” for up to 8 hours with a swipe or two. But is this formula really as long wearing as the brand claims? And can you really have a comfort matte feel on the lips without transfer? I tried the formula out for a week to see how good these bad boys really are, and if they’re actually worth the splurge.
At £19 a pop, these lipsticks are definitely on the higher end of the makeup spectrum… but with packaging like this, you can pretty much ~ see ~ where your money is going. This packaging has been compared to the Tatcha lipsticks, and to be completely honest, I can see why it’s pissed a few people off. The designs are pretty darn similar, and no one can deny that.
The one thing that sets the Too Faced version apart from Tatcha, is the beyond cute peach embossing all over the actual lipstick which is the cutest. The coloured tip of the lipstick lid is also fab for storage, so you can see the shade before your grab it (love the timesaving aspect tbh). Needless to say but whatever your opinion on the Too Faced/Tatcha drama, these lipsticks are a-fucking-dorable.
Too Faced / Wizard Publicity sent me over 5 shades to try out, each a bright, vibrant colour that I was beyond excited to smooth all over my lips and rock with an everyday eye look.
I Think In Pink* – Bright pink with blue undertones
Drunk Dial* – Bright purple with blue undertones
Breakfast Club* – Bright red with orange undertones
Sex On The Peach* – Nude with mauve undertones
Stop Traffic* – Deep red with berry undertones
Whilst I Think In Pink* and Drunk Dial* aren’t shades that I can rock (as I have warm skin undertones, and cool shades look very off against my skin), they’re so bloody beautiful. I think these bright pops of colour would look fab on very pale or very deep skin tones… but they just don’t do it for my complexion.
The other three shades are actually very creamy on the lips, and are definitely more of a creme finish upon application. If, like me, you’re not about that glossy creamy finish you’re going to need to blot this lipstick… a lot. After blotting three or four times, I do think the finish is finally a comfort matte. So you could argue that the finish is quite versatile, depending on your preference or the finish you’re looking for on that particular day.
After trying all three shades on, I can defo say that Breakfast Club*is by far my favourite. It’s seriously bright and the pigment pops after one swipe, plus it does wonders for my complexion – Safe to say it’s my new favourite bright to rock for SS18.
Naturally, I had to do a wear test seeing as Too Faced have made a big claim with the whole 8 hr wear thing. I popped on Breakfast Club* in the morning before a full on date day with Alix and crossed my fingers.
We travelled into East London, did some window shopping around Shoreditch/Spitalfields, and grabbed lunch at Boxpark. I decided on Coqfighter (fyi) who served me up a panko breadcrumb chicken thigh burger, Korean inspired, and whilst I was confident that the lippy was long lasting, I literally couldn’t fit the thing in my mouth… knife and fork it is!
Surprisingly enough it lasted perfectly through the whole meal, and even Alix seemed pretty impressed that it wasn’t smudged all over my moosh. The only time that my lipstick stared to move around was when I attempted to eat a cronut (full on, cronut in face) and the lipstick became very slippy and slid straight off my lips so I had to blot and reapply. I’d say that lipstick is pretty long lasting as long as you’re not eating anything directly with your mouth and stick to a knife and fork.
Do I think this lipstick is worth £19? In short, yes. Personally, I’m so in it for the gimmick (peach scented), the packaging (how bloody cute), and the formula itself is one that I’m totally on board with. Genuinely very impressed with the longevity of it and the bright, pigmented colours are worth it for me personally. If you’re going to get just one, I’d say go for a choice of the brights as they really do *pop* with colour, but the deeps and nudes are just as pretty on the lips. Thank you for another holy grail lippy, Too Faced!
