Given the time of year, and the fact that I’m totally obsessed with all things Christmas, this week as you may have seen, I’ve been trying out a good few metallic lippies. You may also know that I’ve a love/hate relationship with metallics, and this shade today is the perfect example of why.
Of all the Too Faced products I’ve tried, I’ve never come across one I really don’t like, until today. Given their lip products are usually so gorgeous, I had high hopes for this but was completely let down.
Now maybe I just was expecting something different, but to me, this is not a metallic lip but a glitter lip. There are hundreds of glitter particles in the formula, so much so, I may as well have just poured a tub of glitter all of my face.
While I love a subtle glow or shimmer as much as the next person, I’m really not a glitter fan so the minute I applied this, I knew I wasn’t going to like it.
The formula itself is fine but you can feel the graininess of the glitter so the texture isn’t smooth at all. While there is a good bronze pigment, I couldn’t get past the sparkle on my lips to try find any other real positives with it.
If you’re a glitter fan, then I think you’ll love it because once applied, it’s almost impossible to get the glitter off straight away! My lips were glittering all day long, even though I was happy not to reapply it after it started to wear off.
You win some, you lose some as the saying goes and today, I lost. This lipstick just isn’t for me!
