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.
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.
