Hello lovelies! How is your week going so far? The weather here is finally good and I can’t wait to go for a long walk in the park with my boyfriend and our puppy. Speaking of puppies I am going to take Marnie to the groomer in a little bit and I am a bit scared how he will look after the haircut! Crossing my fingers that he will still look like a yorkie haha! <3 On a different, more beauty note I have to share with you one of my current favorite products – Too Faced Full Bloom Lip & Cheek Crème Color in the shade Sweet Pea ($21). This little multi-purpose gem has been my savior on days when I don’t feel like wearing much makeup and I want just a luminous flush of color! :)
As you may know I am a massive Too Faced fan, I like their powder, their eye shadows, lip glosses, bronzers etc. Their products are always great quality and I am not going to lie their packaging is a huge turning point too haha! I love experimenting and trying out new things from them so when I saw this Cheek and Lip Crème Color I had to get me one. The shade I wanted (Prim & Poppy, which is a beautiful coral-y peach) was sold out so I went for Sweet Pea and loved it instantly on my cheeks. It is a beautiful medium toned berry color, which I feel like it would suit many different skin tones! It doesn’t have any shimmer or glitter in it and has a nice dewy finish. On my lips it shows as a lovely true pink, which kind of reminds me of Rimmel Apocalips in Nova, which I love! <3 Can we also please have a moment for the adorable packaging of this product? It is absolutely gorgeous and beautiful and it makes me really happy to just look at it! It is really slim and lightweight so you can easily carry it around with you! Oh it has a mirror at the back of the lid too, which is a huge bonus because it makes it easier to touch up during the day if you need to! (: Definitely a winner so bravo Too Faced!
The formula of this Cheek & Lip Crème Color is really lovely! I’ve been on a hunt for the perfect cream blush and this definitely won my heart! Its texture is amazing – it is SO creamy, soft and silky and it goes on really smoothly and has a nice satin finish and it doesn’t look or feel greasy at all! It glides on smoothly and blends easily without it boing blotchy, which is a big concern of mine with most cream blushes. It definitely feels lightweight on the skin and gives the most amazing radiant, dewy look. I love to wear this because it always makes me look so fresh and awake. It is pretty long lasting and stays on my face for some good 6 hours.
I am someone who definitely likes to match my lip with my cheek color so I am a sucker for such multi-purpose products. The truth is, however, that they rarely work well for both cheeks and lips. Usually they tend to be great for one of them (*cough* BenefitFine One One *cough *) so I’ve started wondering will I be able to get one that will work fab on both. Needless to say that I did and it is the Too Faced Cheek and Lip Crème Color. When you first apply it on the lips it feel really hydrating and creamy as if your are using a tinted lip balm, which was a pleasant surprise! It has a lovely glossy finish but when the gloss is gone the product leaves a nice tint of color on the lips. After a while though my surer dry lips start to feel a bit dry so I either reapply or put a bit lip balm on to so that they are nicely moisturized. :)
Have you noticed that I haven’t mentioned the pigmentation of this product yet? Well that’s because I don’t exactly know what I think about it. Don’t get me wrong - Sweet Pea IS pigmented! A lot! I never thought I’d say this but I think it’s a bit too pigmented! You only need a teeny tiny amount dabbed on top of your brush to get this product opaque. If you are not careful you risk looking like a clown! It happened to me a couple of times and I had to start my whole makeup from scratch. Not cool! If you, however, take your time with it you will look so beautifully glowing and natural! I like to use my favorite Real Techniques Stippling Brush to apply the blush with but you can use your fingers if you like too. Just make sure you are careful and you should be fine! :)
Too Faced Lip & Cheek Crème Color range comes in three different shades, which are all really beautiful and I can’t wait to get my hand on the other two. They retail for $21 which I find is quite reasonable having in mind that you actually use the product both on your cheeks and lips, plus the quality is fab too! This product has flower extracts in it, as well as avocado and Vitamin A to F which all help for health complexion. What I also love about these little babes is that they are vegan-friendly and paraben free!
In a nutshell, I can honestly say that this is a brilliant product and I highly recommend checking it out! The Crème Color is so smooth and silky and I love how it brightens up my complexion without making it look oily! It is also pretty long lasting and if you apply it with caution you will have the prettiest radiant flush of color! And if you are like me and love to match your cheeks and lips this stuff won’t disappoint and you’ll have fab looking lippies as well as cheeks! Definitely a winner! <3
Have you tried this product before? Which is your favorite cream blush?
Lots of love,
