End of March, I attended Too Faced Summer Trend 2011. It was such an exciting event and I feel blessed to have attended it! I also posted the collection from the trend. I think it's time for me to review the Too Faced Full Bloom Cheek & Lip Creme Color.
Product Review: Too Faced Full Bloom Cheek & Lip Creme Color in Tea Rose, Sweet Pea, and Prim & Poppy
Where can you purchase this: stores that sell Too Faced and online at toofaced.com
Price: $21 for 4.5 g/0.16 oz
Made in Canada
Description on the back: Full Bloom Cheek & Lip Creme Color blends effortlessly on the cheeks and lips for a natural glow of sheer, radiant color. Layer with a coordinating Full Bloom Ultra Flush Powder blush for a "lit from within", longer wearing, flushed effect.
Click on the picture to see the original size.My thoughts: At the event, I was really excited about this product. For some odd reason, I have been into cream blushes. I feel that cream blushes give that natural, radiant, flush look. It just blends within the skin. Too Faced went beyond the cheek cream and made it also very versatile so you can use it on your lips.
The three colors from this line are...
Prim & Poppy, warm coral. I think this one is perfect for the Spring/Summer trend of coral colors.
Here are the swatches of the blush/lip color. From left to right is Tea Rose, Sweet Pea, and Prim & Poppy.
At the event, Too Faced recommended topping the cream blush with a powder blush color. On the left, is the cream blush in Prim & Poppy. The right is Too Faced Full Bloom Ultra Flush Powder Blush in Who's Your Poppy? I topped Who's Your Poppy on top of Prim & Poppy.
When you put your finger into the cream product and swirl it around, it gets softer and creamier. It's very soothing or at least for me. I actually think it's a fun product with wide range of color choices. I actually like all the color choices but if I had to choose one, it has to be Prim & Poppy since that is the trend of the color at the moment. :)
Here's how the blush looks on my cheeks. I only applied the cream product and it's very easily build-able. It lasted all day for me. I definitely recommend it for normal skin individual. I think people who have really dry skin with flakiness, it might not blend well. If you have really oily skin, I think it will look great but there's a good chance it might not last all day. I am not too sure on this since I do not have oily skin. :X
I also tried it on my lips. Here's how the colors look on my lips.
Prim & Poppy
I do not recommend this for dry, chapped lips. It has more a look of a lip stain than a lipgloss. It's not very shiny, but natural looking. If you have dry lips, it will define all your lines and dry it out. I even applied a lip balm before this cream color, and my lips dried out within couple of hours of wearing this color. I also noticed the Sweet Pea one smelled like wax on my lips, whereas, the others didn't. It might just be the one I have. I am not too sure on that!
Overall, I am very happy using this for the cheeks! I love the versatile colors and the lasting power.
