Review: Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lipstick in Pink Chocolate

In my cosmetics collection, Too Faced is overrepresented in palettes and underrepresented in lipsticks. I rectified that by picking up Pink Chocolate.

The illustrations on the box are too pretty. I didn’t throw the box away because it’s too lovely to toss out.

The lipstick tube is slim, elegant and secure.

From the website:

  • White Lotus Flower Extract is a sought-after antioxidant that contains hydrating, soothing, and lip-conditioning properties
  • Power Peptides are known to stimulate collagen and aid in the appearance of smoother lips
  • Creamy, one-swipe formula

Pink Chocolate is described as “berry brown”.

I found this to be a warmed brownish pink with no blue tones.

This is one swipe. It is a touch more red than berry.

It isn’t a one-swipe formula. It is a three swipe formula. The color is nice on me but it needs to be built up.

I would say this was moisturizing and made my lips look smoother, but the change wasn’t drastic enough for us to break out the champagne and celebrate.

It lasts on me for about 4 hours before I need to reapply. It comes off when I have a meal.

I enjoy using this, but I’m still going to search for more pink lipsticks.

Pros: Moisturizing, nice color, applies smoothly, lovely packaging.
Cons: Not one-swipe formula, expensive.

Grade: B+

  1. I don’t think I own any Too Faced lipsticks! Pink Chocolate is a really pretty shade.

    Expensive but the shade looks amazing.

    The shade is pretty but the formula sounds pretty average to me. I’d stick with my Wet n Wild lippies instead.
